My guest today is one of Ireland’s leading Health Performance and breathing specialists, Leo Ryan. Leo suffered from chronic asthma for years to a point where he was bed ridden for a total of 6 months. He stumbled across the Buteyko method and practiced this until he was off all medication. After mastering the Buteyko method he then went on to become an Oxygen advantage master instructor, a course designed by Patrick McKeown. Leo then discovered the Wim Hof method and was intrigued by the differences of the two methods and so this led him to train and spend time with Wim, leading him to become a certified Wim Hof method instructor. Now during this podcast we discussed Leo’s experiences living with chronic asthma and how he transformed his life through the power of breathing. We talk in depth about the Oxygen Advantage method and how important nose breathing is for health and sports performance. Leo’s passion for health and physical performance has seen him research more than 50 breathing techniques, mentor with coaches to Olympians, UFC Fighters and World Champions. I hope you enjoy my conversation with the Great Leo Ryan.
