Sports Performance
In our highly competitive world, sports performance is highly prized. For many it is a fulltime career. A primary goal of every athlete is to achieve optimal potential. Efficient breathing is essential for achieving this goal and an increasing number of athletes are now incorporating Buteyko into their training program.

A poor breathing pattern may: limit oxygen exchange; increase the production of lactic acid and subsequently leave the athlete with residual muscle soreness; increase dehydration; increase the occurrence of cramp; prolong recovery time; elevate the heart rate; increase baseline anxiety and contribute to poor sleep patterns.

The aim of the Buteyko Institute Method program is to normalise the breathing pattern. When the body is functioning within its physiologically normal parameters it can work at its optimum.
