Introducing The Buteyko Breathing Technique
Our signature eight-hour beginner course is taught in a variety of formats for adults and children, offering you the tools to learn how to return to a natural healthy breathing pattern.We teach breathing exercises and lifestyle strategies adults can do in a variety of circumstances designed to help to prevent illness and alleviate acute symptoms when they occur. The kids' program starts at age 4 and is more active.
The Buteyko Breathing Technique is widely known and practiced in Russia, home of the late Dr. Konstantin Buteyko, breathing researcher for 50 years before his death in 2003. It came to English-speaking countries in the early 1990s when an Australian businessman had a heart attack on a trip to Moscow and the hospital staff taught him these breathing techniques as a routine matter before he was discharged. He subsequently invited two Buteyko teachers to Australia to teach others, and the techniques have slowly been disseminating to Western Europe and North America ever since.
Refresher/intermediate/advanced courses and coaching available.
The Mission of Breathing Retraining Center LLC
We consider this a hub to extend these practices to anyone in the San Francisco Bay Area and beyond who wants to learn them.
It's a virtual center with many locations so we can offer "local" classes around the Bay Area near you. And we're almost ready to offer our first online course!
The service that is offered in the courses is educational and experiential; not therapeutic. The Buteyko Breathing Technique is an alternative approach and is not the practice of medicine, psychology, or a form of psychotherapy, nor it is a substitute for seeking medical or psychological advice from an appropriate professional health-care provider. We want to make the important distinction between using the Buteyko Breathing Technique for health and well-being and the practice of medicine, psychology or other licensed health-care professions.
