When we think about breathing we think about our lungs, but it's actually our brain that controls how we breathe. Did you know your brain is constantly changing? As we go through life, new experiences, challenges and even physical injuries, can all stimulate the brain to create new neural pathways or reorganize existing ones.
This fundamentally alters how the automatic functions of the body work in the background. One such function is our breathing! So it is possible, with certain training exercises, to make the brain re-program the instructions used to tell your body how to breathe. This re-programming of the brain is called Neuroplasticity and is key to improving your breathing.
