Why breathing properly is so important

Good breathing practice helps to alleviate both mental and physical challenges by regulating your autonomic nervous system. The breath supports the fundamentals of how the mind and body work together. Let me teach you how.

The Science of Breathing

When you use your breath properly, you bring about a state of balance, also known as homeostasis, in your autonomic nervous system.

About Nigel from The Breathing Studio

Hello, I’m Nigel Grimes, founder of The Breathing Studio. I am a holistic health practitioner, accredited by the FHT, the UK’s largest professional association for therapists. I am a qualified Buteyko breathing practitioner and I use Capnotrainer technology to help people to alleviate their health concerns and optimise their sporting performance.

What my clients say

  • I cannot recommend Nigel highly enough. His breathing techniques have really helped me understand my breathing and with the exercises I have really improved my overall fitness levels, noticed significant improvement with my asthma as well as my sleeping pattern as a result.

  • I have recently been doing some breathwork training with Nigel at The Breathing Studio.  One of the reasons I was interested is because for several years now I’ve had intermittent night terrors where I think I’m drowning and I believe I can’t breathe. I also have a history of being highly claustrophobic.


    Seeing as we had got to a point where my fear of not being able to breathe was getting in the way of my progress, Nigel, used his training in the Mind Detox Method ( to make a much-needed shift.


    Fast forward to tonight, and I got tangled up trying to get out of a tight neck jumper. Instead of my usual response of mad panic, I stayed calm and relaxed and just took my time. Wow! What a difference! Thank you, Nigel, for clearing a nearly 43-year-old issue and giving me my confidence back. I can’t wait to see what longer term impact along with my new breathing techniques it will have!

  • Thanks to Nigel’s guidance, I have increased my deep breathing capacity. My husband who is a mouth breather has regular headaches. He has learnt breathing through the nose and that has reduced his frequent headaches.

  • Nigel at The Breathing Studio really knows his stuff when it comes to helping you to use your breath properly. He is an excellent mentor, making it easy to master the techniques he teaches you.

  • I first met Nigel through continuing my health and fitness journey that I have been on for a few years. I knew I needed to breath better. Nigel helped me enormously with my fitness levels by providing me with excellent 1-2-1 exercises. My 5KM PB has now reduced to below 24 minutes as a result. I found Nigel to be a thoroughly engaging and caring individual and through our meetings we discussed other issues I wasn’t previously considering like anxiety and meditation. I now meet with Nigel’s meditation group and I’m really looking forward to continuing on this journey as Nigel expands his repertoire with other wellbeing adventures.
