In this episode, we're joined by Patrick McKeown who walks us through just how we've likely spent our entire lives breathing wrongly.
But how could something we do naturally possibly be wrong? From mouth breathing, to sleeping disorders and the impacts it can have on our development, to the way we stress ourselves out by the way we breathe – we’ll show you strategies that you can use throughout your day to feel calmer, more focused and more in control.

Quotes by Patrick McKeown
“I feel there's a pressure on people as well. They need to be doing physical exercise. They need to be meditating. They now need to be doing breathing exercise, but why not do all three at once? Why not do your physical exercise with your mouth closed with your focus and your attention on your breathing?”
