Summer Breathing Camp
Join Summer Breathing Camp to start breathing more efficiently today. It's as natural as taking your next breath differently.
Poor breathing habits can contribute to a variety of chronic conditions at all ages, including snoring, anxiousness, asthma and allergies.
Most of us have grown up without any breathing education and assume if we're alive we're breathing OK.. But as modern life has become more complex, most of us unwittingly are "stress breathing" and that takes a toll on the body. Check to see if you have any symptoms associated with poor breathing habits.
Breathing Retraining Center's Summer Breathing Camp shares simple, fun activities you can do a few minutes a day at home, on the go, or even on vacation, to change and improve your breathing pattern and feel better.
Play Breathing Games Together
If you suffer from a condition that's exacerbated by poor breathing habits, odds are your children do too or will later in life.
And vice versa. We see many parents bringing their children in for breathing consultations, whom we soon discover need help just as much.
It's no surprise that families share a breathing pattern. Unborn babies do not actually breathe in the womb. The mother breathes for the fetus and essential Oxygen is passed to the fetus through the umbilical cord. The fetus makes breathing-like movements that follow the mother's lead.
Then after birth, most everyone holds the baby on their chests, where the infant again pick up the respiratoryrhythm, but now from a wider group of family members.
"Your breathing pattern is contagious, so practice better breathing together wherever you are -- at home, on the go, even on vacation!"
Summer Breathing Camp Focuses On The Basics
Hone your ability to observe whether you and others are breathing with the mouth or the nose, and gain more awareness of your breathing pattern.
Learn why nasal breathing is so important.
- Discover how to clear your nose if it's stuffy so you can breathe through it.
- Play games to explore how long you can breathe initially with your nose during the essential activities of life (resting, moving, exercising, eating, talking and sleeping).
- Practice how to breathe with your nose when your mouth is open -- namely eating, reading and talking.
- Breathe more gently than you're currently doing, using clear physical signs to guide you to know that you're doing it right.

Our courses offer an alternative approach and are not the practice of medicine, psychology, or a form of psychotherapy, nor do we offer a substitute for seeking medical or psychological advice from an appropriate professional health-care provider. We want to make the important distinction between using the Buteyko Breathing Technique, the BreathSlim Device, relaxation strategies and healthy breathing habits for health and well-being and the practice of medicine, psychology or any other licensed health-care profession.
