Why Breath?

Breathing Methods



Buteyko Breathing

Kunteyko Breathing





Healing using the Breath is generally not a “quick fix”, although it will often reverse symptoms immediately. Of greatest importance are the long-term health benefits and immune system strengthening which you will continue to experience throughout your lifetime.


Dorisse's teaching has certainly brought me out of the darkness. I had my very best exercise experience this morning. I’m over the moon about my progress after just 4 months. I’m being tested Monday and I truly believe I will no longer need the nightly oxygen. Thanks Again.
