In 2015 I did my Buteyko Breathing Technique practitioner training course in Galway with Patrick McKeown. What blew my mind was the number of trials internationally that have shown the efficacy of breathing re-education.

Now that January is behind us there is a spring in our step here in EasyBreathing HQ. Like many folk I have set myself some fitness goals for 2019. While there’s never a bad time to set goals, early in the a new year can be great because we can often get support from our friends, family and community to help us achieve those goals. In this post I examine how breathing better while exercising can help you achieve your fitness goals.
Not least amongst these supports is RTÉ and SafeFood’s annual Operation Transformation, an 8 week television series supported by oodles of well researched advice. Through the journeys of five leaders, we are shown regimes, recipes, diets and routines to inspire a healthier lifestyle for us all. read more…
