“I was really struggling with my response to stress and some physical issues that were affecting my everyday life. I was under the impression the breathing techniques I had used in the past were working in my favor. Within the first ten minutes, I realized there was more to it. Over the next month, I changed my response to stress with exercise and breathing practices. The difference has been astounding.“

“The sessions with BYT and the content provided were amazing. I learn something new with each person that I work with on my health journey, and David may be the most valuable of anyone I’ve worked with in the last 8 years. I am excited at the thought of how much this breath work is going to improve my quality of life and am eager to continue learning/exploring more!.“

“Working with David and Breathe Your Truth completely changed how I approach breathing. I used to be afraid of the ‘air hunger’ and strain I felt while hiking or doing high altitude backpacking. With David’s help, I learned that I was experiencing hyperventilation and that my attempts to overcome it were just making things worse. Through simple yet consistent practice I can now nose breathe when I’m active, slow my breath and adjust my inhale and exhale appropriately to move out of hyperventilation and into productive breathing.  A bonus has been learning to mobilize and strengthen my diaphragm through David’s simple Qi Gong exercises. I’ve only scratched the surface of what I can achieve with this work and I know I’ll keep coming back to it over and over again. Breathwork will be a permanent part of the training program for all of my backpacking trips from now on”

“I approached the information with a bit of skepticism (as I do with most new things) – but the more I did research, as well as the more personal benefit I experienced from the practices, the more enthusiastic I became. I feel like I apply what I’ve learned literally all day, every day.

I have enjoyed every moment of engaging my breath in a different way. David is an exceptionally skilled and attentive teacher. I’ve particularly appreciated the combination of knowledge and practice in the sessions, this way, I’m able to take the information and the activities into my daily life. As a lifelong swimmer, I’m excited about the impacts of the breath work on my swimming.

I was wheezing and feeling tightness in my chest during hard workouts, and I had been told by doctors that I could implement a regimen of inhalers. I was uncomfortable with the diagnosis, and wanted to first try a more holistic approach. That’s what lead me to try David’s breath work program. I am so happy I did. Going through the breath work program has been a game changer for my athletic training and racing. I feel more in control and confident in my running workouts, and I am hitting personal bests in races. There is never one magic bullet with performance, but I now count breathwork as a fundamental component of athletic training, and I’d recommend it to anyone looking to improve performance, however that is defined.

Working with David at Breathe Your Truth has significantly impacted my athletic career as an ultra runner. David is incredibly knowledgeable on the intricacies of breathing, neurological functioning and athletic performance. His guidance is clear and makes sense, which makes it easy to apply into daily life. I definitely recommend David to other runners, athletes and people with breathing issues in general, as I feel confident he can make a difference, because he did for me!

Besides the therapy I had on location with Deppeler, I learned breathing techniques I still use every day. As an elite runner, it has been incredibly important. I felt an immediate change in training and noticed daily improvements. This work has also improved my sleep. I am happy to wake up feeling better.
