How to use the Breather?

  1. Sit upright, hold the mouthpiece between your lips.

  3. Rotate the tactile inhale (settings 1-6) and exhale (settings 1-5) dials to a setting at which you manage 10 breaths without puffing your cheeks or getting out of breath. You want to feel as if you’ve been giving 70% of your effort to get to the 10th breath.
  4. Increase the inhale and exhale settings independently of each other if the set of 10 breaths becomes too easy. Reduce the dial settings if you have not been using your Breather for a period of time due to illness or other reason.
  5. Training: Please use The Breather 6 days per week. 2 sessions per day (mornings and evening). 2 sets of 10 full breaths per session.
  6. You should start noticing positive benefits after your first week of use. Continue training using The Breather for the rest of your life.
