The exercises are then tapered off after these 6 weeks. The frequency of follow-up after this period will depend on your improvement and the goal you have set for yourself. As a minimum, I recommend a follow up of every 3 months on your first year to help embed this new habit. After your first year, a breathing check every 6 – 12 months ensures that the good breathing habits you have developed are maintained even through life’s challenges such as illnesses, work or family stressors, etc. Catching it early on its way to regressing helps you to support your breathing earlier and prevents a recurrence.
