Hi my fellow breather’s,

I don’t say this lightly but up until I was almost 40 years old my breathing was average at best. My energy levels, focus, attention, poor sleep, brain fog was a constant battle. I have tried many therapies, healing modalities and read 100’s of health books from all over the world in my search. I have had many coaches for karate, boxing, mountain biking, high altitude backpacking, yoga, Tai Chi, Jiu Jitsu, weightlifting, and so many more with a very minimal focus on the power of proper breathing. I never gave it a 2nd thought that it might hold a bigger part of the health puzzle. Then I heard from a friend of mine about the power of CO2 (Bohr Effect from 1904) and my next rabbit hole presented itself. I started to read everything I could about the Buteyko Method, Oxygen Advantage, Pranayama, Qi Gong, special ops breathing, and all medical studies behind them.

I was very surprised to be able to upgrade myself across those conditions as fast as I did with such small effort.

I am not new to health hacking. I have been researching other health studies for over 25 years. With those studies I currently use saunas, cold plunges, cold showers, intermittent fasting, water fasting, different food/allergy diets, parasite protocols and more trying to create the healthiest version of myself. NOTHING compared to the changes that I recieved when I spent time practicing the different breathing practices.

Studying, utilizing and showing others the benefits of different breathing practices has been the most rewarding project of my life.

This subject is not a one answer fits all breathing practice, there are many different ways to practice your breathing. You get to judge in the moment and over time how they benefit your body and overall life. We are here to help others save time and energy with our study, research and results approach.

We are here to help you upgrade yourself on every level.
