Mindfulness and meditation with Buteyko reduced breathing exercise, use of cortisol and other techniques
While the original Buteyko method has very little related to training of the mind or mindfulness, there were developments in this area. Breathing exercises are among first most ancient meditation techniques:

Patrick McKeown, a Buteyko teacher from Ireland, developed mindfulness exercises with muscle relaxation combined with reduced breathing that is the main exercise of the Buteyko method. These advances can be found in his audio “Anxiety Free” that is a part of the Amazon book with the same name.

Further advances in the area of meditation and metacognition are to be expected in future.

There were many other small and large innovations to slow down your breathing and achieve higher morning CP.

Dr. Andrey Novozshilov, MD, the chief physician of the Buteyko Clinic in Moscow provided these two great ideas.

How to use cortisol for breathing retraining and the Buteyko method. These ideas, as well as how to dose cortisol and how to wean off cortisol, can be found in his book “Living Without Asthma”.

Dr. Andrey Novozshilov also shared how to represent reduced breathing exercise (the main breathing exercise of the Buteyko method) using a simple chart or diagram. The image is shown in the video above.

Other innovations:
– Patrick McKeown’s mindfulness exercise that combines reduced breathing with muscle relaxation
– Dr. Andrey Novozshilov’s description related to uses of cortisol for breathing retraining and his visual representation of reduced breathing on a chart.
