What is circular breathing?

Circular breathing is a wind instrument technique that allows the player to sustain a tone for an extended period of time. This is accomplished by storing air in the mouth (inflating the cheeks) and using this reservoir of air to inhale through the nose while air is still coming out the mouth. Circular breathing can be seen as a variation on normal breathing: at its essence the player inhales through the nose and alternately exhales out the mouth. Circular breathing is key to didgeridoo playing because it allows for the continuous drone to remain unbroken, forming a strong foundation for the complete sound. Learning to circular breathe is like going to the gym:  you work to develop muscle tone, flexibility and control.

didgeridoo sleep apnea success story circular breathing

My path to playing the didgeridoo began with difficulty staying asleep at night and low daytime energy.  An overnight sleep study showed that I had sleep apnea.  As recommended, I purchased a CPAP machine and oral appliance but found them too uncomfortable to utilize. I asked the doctor, “Are there any throat exercises I might try?”  to which he replied, “the only exercise we know about that has shown to help sleep apnea is playing the didgeridoo.” The doctor gave me the contact information for Didge Project in New York City where I met and began to study didgeridoo with AJ Block doing private lessons and his group program.

From the very beginning of my experience with the didgeridoo I pretty much fell in love with it.  I found it enjoyable to play, and I decided immediately that I would continue playing beyond the therapeutic sleep apnea practice.  After two weeks of playing daily I became aware that I was sleeping much better.  I believe that this was a combination of the strengthening of my throat muscles and the meditative state induced by the vibrations of the didgeridoo.  Since then, about two years ago, I do not consider myself to have a sleep problem anymore. It is truly wonderful to no longer be living my life in a state of sleep deprivation.

– Paul Auerbach, Educator

I have taken two group courses with Didge Project, and both of them were fantastic, inspiring and uplifting. AJ and the Didge Project team are wonderful teachers, great people to be around, and their teaching style is very diverse. The didgeridoo is the first instrument I really enjoy playing because it is so profoundly basic and yet engages you physically and spiritually in complex and fascinating ways. I was actually surprised how quickly I could learn to make sounds and rhythms. The classes are clearly structured and methodical, lots of hands-on practice and personal guidance. I am now playing didge in yoga classes and people absolutely love the experience of its healing earth vibrations. I highly recommend any group classes or private sessions with Didge Project, please check it out and embark on a journey into peaceful sound!
