Private Facebook page available to share experiences, network with peers and ask questions of expert
mentors who care about your progress.

A journey of self-discovery.

Just like Eskimos have 50 words to describe snow, and carpenters use a variety of nails , there are many ways to describe the quality of someone's breathing. This is what we do in The Breathing Audit. If you have a reason to assess your breathing -- either for health or performance reasons -- you will find this very insightful and interesting.

Gain valuable information most people don't even know is available.

A regular, calm breathing pattern is just as important to well-being as good food, exercise and sleep. Knowing how you are breathing can provide a fresh angle of insight into your mental and physical health.

Hi, I'm Lisa Bowen. I'm a breathing educator at Breathing Retraining Center and I created The Breathing Audit.  
If you're here, I assume something about your breathing is uncomfortable, and you've already been checked out by a doctor.
We teach self-help techniques to gain more respiratory fitness.
The first step is to become aware of how  you are breathing.
Over the years I have noticed that the majority of my students and clients have no idea whether they are breathing through their mouth or their nose as they go through their day -- while hanging out, working on the computer, driving, exercising, shopping...That detail is significant, as you will soon find out.
Also, so many people I come in contact with every day -- both personally and professionally -- are literally gasping for air when they're talking. How uncomfortable -- and invisible to them! 
The purpose of The Breathing Audit is to make the invisible visible,, to offer critical details about how you are moving your air, for an accurate and deep intuitive understanding you can use to improve this most important  function that integrates and reflects mind, body and spirit."



Some elements of your breathing pattern. 

Changing one thing affects everything...Improve your breathing. Improve your health. Improve your life.

Start at Nose or Mouth?
Do you use one or both?

Land in Chest or Belly?
How deep does the air go?

Softball or Baseball Speed?
How fast are you breathing?

Breeze or Gale Force?
Is your breathing obvious or subtle?

Bumpy or Smooth Ride?
Turbulence matters!

Stressed Out or Relaxed?
Biggest factor to consider!

When you're mindful of your breathing, you're on your best behavior. Print out extra worksheets and enlist family and friends to help you record data about your breathing pattern -- especially when you're unaware you're being observed.

Clarify anything you don't understand. Ask questions and share experiences on Facebook if you have an account.

Step 3

Ask questions on Facebook, or send us a message.

Step 4

Interpret Breathing Audit Findings

Evaluate your results against healthy breathing norms. Find out which of the 10 Healthy Breathing Habits to concentrate attention on based on the breathing behavior you want to change.

How does my breathing pattern affect me?

--If you snore with your mouth open at night, it's likely you are breathing with your mouth at least sometimes 
during the day. If you want to stop snoring, you have a better chance of success if you stop mouth breathing during the day.

--If you have obstructive sleep apnea, which is partly characterized by holding the breath while sleeping, it's likely you're holding your breath at times during the day too. Explore what happens at night if you normalize your breathing during the day.

--If you breathe with your mouth, into your chest, and you breathe fast, you are most likely triggering the fight-or-flight nervous system just by breathing that way, regardless of what else is happening, and you will feel more nervous and jittery than if you weren't breathing that way. It is possible to change your state by changing your breathing.

--If you breathe with your mouth at gale force, it's ironic but true that you may end up breathless.
