BUTEYKO BREATHING

The Buteyko Breath is an amazing technique to learn! This is another practice to bring into your everyday life in different situations. This breath is yet another technique to remove tress & bring in relaxation as this breath intend of slowing down our breathing & allowing our breathing to be lighter to bring in calmness.

This technique implies that instead of having faster breathing, have slower breathing. Instead of sighing, have regular consistent breathing. Instead of noticeable breathing, have softer, calmer breathing. Instead of chest breathing, do diaphragmic breathing.

Having slower nose breathing allows us to harness higher concentrations of nasal nitric oxide that enhances uptake in the blood. Nose breathing activates the diaphragm & this assists in activation the parasympathetic nervous system.


PRACTICE: I would suggest to be in a quite place and slowly & calmly practice this breath. Breathe in nice & slowly through your nose for 5-10 seconds, feeling the nasal hairs of your nose slightly move... then exhaling at that slow pace for the same 5-10 seconds. Doing this for a 5 minutes is enough time to really feel into the magic of this breath!

As mentioned in the video, this technique was learnt by a Legend named Patrick McKeown & here is a video of his describing this breath in more detail: https://youtu.be/DlITtZZ3vWU
