Did you know?
The way you breathe can make you sick or make you well?

Welcome to our breathing family. I'm Mike White. The Optimal Breathing Coach.
Breath IS life.  The way we breathe fosters clear or confused thinking, makes us excited or calm, tense or relaxed. You can manage something better if you can measure it. I’ve spent the last 20 years developing breathing skills that work for vitality, longevity and personal power.  Thousands of free Breathing Test takers showed us there are 5 key breathing skills and several breathing development techniques and exercises that correlate with massive improvements in speaking, sleeping, stress management, singing, energy, blood pressure, anxiety, depression, weight control and asthma.

NEW SURVEY:
What do you want to know about breathing?

.

 

 

Did you know?
By the time we are diagnosed with some kind of lung issue we have lost 50% of our breathing? What was going on up to then?

"I feel fine." "My breathing is fine". How many said they felt great or passed a stress test then took sick or dropped dead shortly thereafter.   

Awareness and proper repetition and variety.
We know we can lose muscle mass but few realize t
he average person reaches peak respiratory function in their mid 20's. Then they begin to lose breathing capacity: between 10-27% for every decade of life.

Unless we  do something to maintain or improve our breathing, it will decline, and with it, our general health, life expectancy and personal power. I am 73 years old and 185 lbs and 6 foot 2 inches tall. My breathing volume is that of a 6 foot 6 inch 20 year old male. How good is YOUR breathing?

Like planning for retirement, knowing the fundamentals helps you stay on course. Here is an example of being way off-course - Superman Syndrome.

Facts you should know:

  • Science has proven that cancer is anaerobic - it does not survive in high levels of oxygen.
     
  • Shortness of breath and heart disease are directly linked - the heart goes into spasm when it is deprived of oxygen.
     
  • Studies have shown that there is a high correlation between high blood pressure and poor breathing.
     
  • Breathing drives the nervous system somewhere between a drunk or skilled race car driver.
     
  • Breathing well is the key to sleeping well and waking up feeling rested.
     
  • Yoga breathing may hinder rather than not aid proper breathing.
     
  • Breath-rate is a developable skill.  5 breaths per resting minute is very good.  How many resting breaths do you take in a minute?  How good is YOUR breathing?

Statistics
Clinical studies
prove that oxygen, wellness, and life-span are severely dependent on optimal breathing.

Lung volume is a primary marker for how long you will live.

                             Testimonials

A recent client age 63 , 6'1' 119 pounds with a severely worsening bronciectasis and a 25 year history compounded by bad breathing most of his life came to my office bent over and out of breath after walking the 50 feet to my door. He left 11 days later 2 pounds heavier and walked the streets of NYC for 90 minutes. I approached it as a dietary, nutritional supplements, sleep, postural and immune system issue as well as restoring his breathing mechanics including spinal flexibility and training him in what to do at home.
From Mano: The information is very informative that strikes a caution regarding bad breathing. It reminds one of the basic rule, "prevention is better than cure".  
From Justin S: I am inspired by new ideas and new concepts - I believe that breathing right is one of the most important things in staying healthy - your web site is filled with important and logical information...... it makes perfect sense on what your saying about breathing properly-a lot of people (including myself) are starting to look for answers in a non traditional way. I always believe that the best way is the simplest, straightforward approach, the way that makes the most sense - just breathing right.
Learning to breathe under the guidance of Mike White has not only saved my life but profoundly altered its quality- Marie D.,
I am a changed person....I sleep better, look better, and think better, all because of the video and exercise #1.  - Wanda Chafin
I am now of course still practicing proper breathing (50 years of bad habits), off meds, and have not awaked at night even once since starting the program and getting private instruction from Michael.  - Phyllis Ross
Michael White is an extraordinary breathing coach who teaches people new patterns of breathing, helping them to bring in more oxygen. These techniques help to improve health, stamina and even voice quality.  - Raymond Francis, Director, Beyond Health Corporation
While working with Mike in 2000 I was introduced to the strapping exercise which really allows an opening and expanding of lung capacity.  - Phillip Madeley
Coming to The Optimal Breathing School has been a life altering event for me. I learned how critical free flowing, coordinated, and balanced breathing is to our human existence.  - Sam Leiter, Philadelphia
"I have sang and played music for 35 years. I had no idea I was capable of singing with such strength, control, confidence and ease as I have been until after working with Mike for only 5 hours."  - Jerry Harmon, Appalachian Singer Songwriter
From personal experience I can highly recommend Mike White, the expert on optimal breathing.  If there is anyone who can really help you breathe better, it's Mike.  - Esther Joy, Natural Vision Trainer

Removing the blocks to self realization and peak performance: breathing as a metaphor for life.
"I spent four days in private sessions with Michael White. My breathing was fast (23 to 28 breaths per minute) and I was having a very hard time catching my breath without using muscles in my core and shoulders to consciously draw in the inhale. My girlfriend tended to feel anxious around me and wanted to break up. Decades of breathwork and other somatic processes helped improve my confidence and joy in my life, but the mechanics of my breathing had not improved. I went to North Carolina with the following goals:
 1. Improve breathing mechanism to catch my breath
 and breath naturally and automatically.
 2. Relieve "body armoring" from emotional traumas.
 3. Have a deeper inner peacefulness.
 4. Improve my relationship with my girlfriend.
 5. Hike and run without inflammation in the lungs (chest) area.
 6. Learn to sing in a way that sounds good and is enjoyable.
Mike made me feel very welcome and comfortable. We got right into some baseline testing followed by a wide variety of exercises and bodywork techniques. After four days, my normal breath rate was down to 10 to 14 breaths per minute (from 23-28). could take a full, satisfying breath most of the time. My inhale started to occur automatically, without using my core and shoulder muscles.
  
More important to me, is that my girlfriend is excited about the new me! I backed off on my running a bit with the intention of adding it back gradually being careful to avoid lung inflammation. I bought a karaoke machine and have been using it and enjoying it. I had considered myself "tone deaf" and only sang (traumatized myself) once in public as a child 40 years ago.  
 I have to admit that it took me several days after returning home to gradually add some of the Optimal Breathing exercises back into my routine. I realize that it will be a process to fully transform my life and breathing and heal my lungs. But thanks to Mike White, all of my six goals have started to come to fruition!"

“Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness... the moment one definitely commits oneself, then Providence moves, too. All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decision.”   —Goethe
