Any kind of voluntary deep breathing has a similar result, (esp also the pushing out of the exhalation). This is seen with asthmatics. Every specialist doctor is familiar with the fact, that when asthmatics suffer an attack, and they start to take deep breaths, the attack gets worse. If however, they breathe normally in a shallow way, their attacks normalise soon (after some additional exercises which Dr. Buteyko prescribes...)

Sorry for the digression. I don't know what AOL teaches exactly. If it is this stronger type of hyperventilation, then I understand why people like it. It used to be called Rebirthing in New Age circles, if it is the same thing (holotropic breathwork)
I was reading up on this interesting man, Wim Hof, who is from Netherlands. He says he can positively influence his autonomic nervous system by using his deep breathing technique.

Assuming that the claimed accomplishments and the videos are genuine and not fake, I must say he has acquired some extraordinary physical powers to withstand the fatal, freezing temperatures over and beyond physiological human endurance permits. Is it all only from his mere breathing technique as he asserts? Debatable. Just before taking up the physical challenge open mouth breathing is what he does or so it appears on the videos.I thought I should share this with you all.

This is something that has been stated about the yogis and it is also said that they can control their oxygen requirement to a minimum and even remain underground for a long time. I do not know whether this is true or just hearsay. One thing I know, as all of us who follow many threads here may know, is that breath control in many ways help to control body functions/ physical activities.
