Patrick McKeown has helped thousands of people to substantially improve their sports performance and overall health by incorporating simple, medically proven principles and exercises into their lives. As a child, Patrick faced his own medical issues with asthma which became progressively worse into his teens and early twenties.
In 1997, after graduating from Trinity College in Dublin, Patrick discovered the work of Dr. Konstantin Buteyko. He applied Dr. Buteyko’s breathing methods and quickly found that his asthma symptoms completely reversed, allowing him far better control over his breathing, with absolutely no need for medication.
Since then Patrick has built a worldwide business on what can only be described as a very simple idea – breathing through your nose.
Patrick holds regular workshops and talks on dysfunctional breathing in ten countries including the USA, Canada, Australia, Brazil, Israel, Denmark, France, Holland, the UK, and his native Ireland. He has trained Buteyko practitioners from 32 countries and regularly provides online Buteyko courses by Skype. Patrick is considered one of the world’s leading authorities on addressing dysfunctional breathing patterns. His new book The Oxygen Advantage is the result of 4 years of research in the field of improving Sports Performance.
