The science

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 re-programming of the brain is called Neuroplasticity and is key to improving your breathing.

If certain breathing exercises which combine mild self-imposed hypoxic sequences (breath holds) with interspersed relaxed breathing are repeated over time, permanent neuro-plastic changes within the automatic breathing control center in the brain occur.

The brain has learnt a new set of instructions on how to breathe, and will follow those instructions automatically.

These changes permanently enhance breathing stability while improving stimulation of the muscles that keep the upper airway clear. The result? Reduction of sleep disturbed breathing episodes such as sleep apnea and snoring.

Our training courses

Neuroplasticity underpins our breath training courses. Our clinically proven training encourages the brain to “reprogram” your breathing so that the improved function becomes automatic. In turn, this leads to improvements in breathing related conditions such as snoring, sleep apnea and stress.

Our technology

Using our patented technology in conjunction with the breathesimple band we can monitor your breathing. How? Well, the band very accurately reads your heart rate which varies tiny amounts as you breathe in and out. So, by monitoring your heart rate we can measure how you are breathing! We use this to track lots of data about how you breathe and to check that you are doing your personalized breathing exercises correctly.

And when you go to bed, the band monitors your sleep all night. In the morning, you can check on your sleep patterns and track how the breathing exercises are improving your sleep health, day by day!
