Author Patrick McKeown is an expert on the art of breathing and has extensively researched the health impact of various breathwork techniques. In this interview, he talks about his personal journey dealing with asthma, sleep apnea, and fatigue, and how he transformed his health by becoming aware of his breath and incorporating simple, but powerful techniques such as nose breathing, increasing co2 tolerance, and monitoring factors like the heart rate variability. In this chat, McKeown goes deep into the science of breathing and what happens in the body when we take that breath of air, from the biomechanics of breathing to the actual molecules and how they interact with our body.
