The aim of Buteyko is to restore nasal breathing and normal, functional breathing patterns.
To achieve this, you do a number of breathing exercises every day for about three months, and sometimes longer. With daily practice you train the body to breathe more calmly. This will improve blood circulation, the functioning of the airways and the release of oxygen to tissues and organs. Beside practicing, we take a look at factors that can negatively affect our breathing, such as stress, what we eat and drink, exercising too little or talking a lot. Here too, adjustments are possible to start breathing healthy again.
