Breathing Learning is a set of didactic/logopedic tools to enhance learning for adults and children who would like to learn faster and more efficiently.
Breathing Languages is an interactive audio coaching system that combines breathing exercises with audio lectures to provide a more efficient learning process in learning languages and improving speech.
Breathing Video is an interactive video player that synchronizes video content with the users’ exhalation. It is being used to learn languages more efficiently and to provide more personalised guidance and supervision in breathing exercises coaching. It provides NORMAL mode, which plays video only during user’s breathing exercise (suitable for learning languages and skills), and TURBO mode where exhalation is used to fast forward videos (suitable for watching lectures, listening to audiobooks, etc). Breathing Video has been featured in Open Journal of Respiratory diseases, read more here.

“Pursed-lip breathing attempts to prolong active expiration through half-opened lips, thus helping to prevent airway collapse. Compared with spontaneous breathing, pursed-lip breathing reduces respiratory rate, dyspnea, and PaCO2, while improving tidal volume and oxygen saturation in resting conditions."
American Thoracic Society
"Pursed lip breathing is one of the simplest ways to control shortness of breath. It provides a quick and easy way to slow your pace of breathing, making each breath more effective."
“Inhaling through the nose and exhaling through pursed lips makes breathing easier. Pursed-lip breathing can also help you regain control if you’re having trouble catching your breath.
