You Deserve To Breathe Easy
Breathing retraining is a self-management approach to identify and correct poor breathing habits that can underlie chronic illness and lagging sports performance.
Discover a set of tools -- based on simple, scientifically-validated principles and exercises -- to condition and improve your breathing strength and capacity.
Most of the people who explore breathing coaching, experience breathlessness for some reason. Many are athletes who would like to move freer, faster and more comfortably. Others have breathing-related conditions like asthma, allergies, snoring and anxiety, and are under medical care.

There's a lot of information available about basic health practices such as what and how to eat, and how much water to drink.
It's not commonly known, but there's also a physiologically normal way to breathe too -- to get the most oxygen absorbed by the brain and body, and feel more energy.
We breathe 20,000 to 30,000 a day. When people breathe poorly, it can exacerbate conditions like asthma and allergies, snoring and other sleep disturbances, and anxiousness and stress. If you have one of those conditions, it's not guaranteed but very likely you can reduce symptoms by normalizing your breathing pattern.
Breathing Retraining Center offers a natural, comprehensive wellness program of breathing re-education aimed at correcting poor breathing habits with self-help breathing exercises and therapeutic lifestyle changes.
Our services include:
Tools and processes designed to evaluate your breathing habits from a fitness perspective.
Education designed to show you the path to improving your breathing habits.
Training designed to improve your respiratory capacity for the enjoyment of daily activities, sports and optimal health.
Coaching to discover what you want for your health and stamina, and how to achieve that, on your own terms.
The four pillars:
Consistency: Do a minimum daily practice, anchored onto an existing habit, toward a specific goal.
Community: Regular, even daily, contact, to receive reinforcement and motivation.
Growth Mindset: Identify blocks and solve challenges.
Unstoppable Momentum: Generate enthusiasm through positive, regular action!
Embrace the change you want to experience with support that works for you.
Private coaching includes Zoom video sessions with text messaging in-between, to provide exceptional presence and encouragement as you internalize the breathing skills that can correct the disruptive symptoms of poor breathing habits.
Once you get comfortable with breathing differently, it's fun to explore and practice breathing skills with like-minded people in a community that meets regularly. -- The Healthy Breathing Habits Academy.
This is modeled after personal fitness training, where you see your coach once a week (or another frequency you prefer) and do recommended activities between sessions.
Our Healthy Breathing Habits Academy offers affordable, continuing support to learn and develop breathing skills and stamina.

I highly recommend attending one of Lisa Bowen's Buteyko Blitz Weekends or classes that she offers. Lisa gave me many tools that I am slowly trying to incorporate in my life. Lisa is a competent, personable teacher who both provides information and then makes sure you understand what you are learning by having you practice various methods. I am confident attendees will benefit from this method.
I've never had a breakthrough in my health as amazing as this! Lisa has shown me a light at the end of a tunnel of chronic illness and chronic coughs. Thank God for this place!
