Breatheology - the art of conscious breathing

Most of us breathe inefficiently.  Life is often lived in the fast lane, and especially when we are stressed, we tend to use only the upper part of our lungs. We forget to breathe deep down into the stomach and thereby lose out on a lot of energy.

Only when you become aware of your breathing and how to train it, you will be able to learn to breathe properly. Your body will immediately absorb more oxygen and after a short time you will have more energy and gain greater mental calmness.

The Breatheology book gives you step-by-step guidance and helps you build your own personal training program that suits your daily life and needs in a perfect way.

Advantages of efficient breathing: 

  • Gain more energy in your daily life
  • Become better at managing stress in work and daily situations
  • Optimize your sport performances
  • Avoid illnesses and get well faster
  • Minimize chronic or transient pain
  • Become happier and more positive
  • Live a healthier and longer life

Besides all the “easy to follow” exercises and basic explanations on the anatomy, physiology and psychology of breathing the book is divided into these main chapters:

  • Restless breathing
  • Normal breathing
  • Trained breathing
  • Sustained breathing 
  • Powerful breathing
  • Therapeutic breathing
  • Soothing breathing 

Happy readers

World Run I & II

I have with huge interest read Stig’s book about Breatheology and tried to introduce some of its principles into my training. It’s brought a more spiritual side to my training regime and I have had much joy and benefit from the focus on breathing and the different mindsets as well. At times when I was fatigued during my 2. run around the world, I also used some of the breathing techniques to ease the strain!.

I have been reading the book every day and have really enjoyed every aspect of the importance of diet, and all the exercises and visualisation. I just want to say thank you for assisting in my breathing and breath holds.      Thank you Stig.
