Breathing Dynamics

The Breathing Dynamics approach to retaining breathing include simple and easy to implement programs that teach you to breathe as you are ‘built to’, and yields significant results within weeks.

Breathing is the body function we perform more than any other apart from our heart beating. Yet the average person OVER BREATHES, meaning that we breathe twice as often as is ideal and with far too much volume of air. In addition we use our mouths to breathe, instead of our noses; our chest to drive inhalation rather than our diaphragm and we our breathing is often audible, rather than silent.

As is the case with any function of living that influences our health, over-breathing has us under-perform dramatically and leads to many symptoms of illness and ailments, including:

  • Fatigue
  • Asthma and breathing difficulties
  • Headaches and migraines
  • Snoring and apnoea
  • IBS and digestive complaints
  • Anxiety and depression
  • Dental problems
  • Poor athletic performance


"I have been seeing Tim Altman for breathing therapy after being diagnosed with severe sleep apnoea. Tim’s breathing therapy has been part of a multi-modal approach to treating the apnea. Sessions with Tim have taught me to breathe more slowly, through the nose into the diaphragm, rather than rapidly, through the mouth into the chest. A hard habit to break after 35 years!"
