Frequently asked questions
Do I need to be fit to take a breathing class?
Not at all! We are going to work out the muscles involved in breathing. However, this does not involve intense exercise and is suitable for all ages and fitness levels. You should not get sweaty.
Why did my breathing become disfunctional?
There are a number of reasons why this could have happened.
Bracing is a common reason the breath changes from healthy to shallow and anatomically incongruous.
A very common cause is a desk job or overuse of mobile devices which induce bad posture and high stress levels. This often has a negative impact on breathing.
Other causes may include physical traumas such as painful injuries or surgeries as well as psychological traumas.
How much can sitting at a desk and poor posture effect my breathing?
According to studies, sedentary behaviour and poor posture may lower the quality of your breath by up to 30%.
Can the Anatomical Breathing class help with asthma?
Absolutely. By strengthening your breathing muscles, you will regain a strong enough exhale to improve lung function and your immunity.
Can the Anatomical Breathing class help with digestive issues?
There is ample scientific evidence that improved breathing can positively impact the digestive tract and help with a wide range of digestive issues.
When will I notice results?
This depends on each individual. Many people experience improvements as early as the first class. Provided exercises are done daily, virtually all people experience benefits within two weeks.
