Lisa Bowen

Breathing Educator

Lisa was a lifelong sufferer of asthma and allergies until she discovered the Buteyko Breathing Technique about 10 years ago.

Now she's a breathing educator trained under the auspices of the Buteyko Breathing Educators Association.

Lisa grew up in San Francisco, lived across the Bay in Oakland for many years and now calls Marin County home.

Allergies and asthma limited her life for a long time and she's thrilled to be able to teach others techniques she learned that helped her overcome those difficulties for herself.

"As a kid, I couldn't go to slumber parties because most of my friends had cats and dogs to which I was allergic," she remembers.  "Before I stopped going altogether in the third grade, I would routinely wake up in the middle of the night with a major asthma attack in front of several other little girls. Pretty embarrassing and uncomfortable."

She didn't excel in sports, couldn't learn how to ride a horse because she was allergic to them. got lots of colds all winter long...

These limitations extended into her adulthood when she felt uncomfortable going to parties at homes with pets. 

Now Lisa has two dogs at home and is a Masters swimmer!
