START YOUR JOURNEY TO BREATHING RE-EDUCATION THE COURSE
Throughout the course I teach you the breathing exercises and some simple theory over 5 or 6 lessons, usually totalling about 10 hours. You can complete these exercises at anytime and in any situation. Your personal toolbox! I will monitor and follow your progress, and help you to succeed. The exercises require commitment, however as your health improves you won’t need encouragement, you will want to continue. These techniques have been validated by numerous independent trials.
The 5 sessions of 2 hours each are about learning the classic BUTEYKO building blocks, the toolkit you will be able to use to increase your health and well-being. The severity of your symptoms and the length of time you have been unwell will affect the length of time before you have reduced or eradicated your symptoms. However you WILL notice improvement straight away.
