"I have loved all aspects of the course and it has re-awoken my passion for breathing." - Sarah Hurst, Physiotherapist, Adult & Child Module, October 2017.
Adult & Child Module: Wednesday 2nd - Friday 4th September 2020, Letchworth, UK
We are currently offering the Adult & Child Module, which covers all the Buteyko techniques. Child techniques can also be useful for adults who do not have the time to practice full adult Buteyko or who find the adult techniques difficult to understand or master. Our courses are accredited by the Buteyko Breathing Association (BBA).
This is a post graduate level course, previously run as a Masters module at Coventry University, we therefore only accept healthcare professionals with a degree or equivalent in an appropriate subject onto our courses. Please contact us if you are unsure if your qualification is suitable.
The course consists of individual practice of Buteyko, following a DVD and CD, for two weeks while completing a reflective diary. There is also pre-course questions which review current pharmacological asthma management, which Buteyko techniques complement.
The taught component runs over 3 consecutive days, with the focus on learning how to teach Buteyko effectively and safely to others. The course is very practical, with approximately two thirds of the time spent practicing and teaching the techniques in a small class size of around 15 students. A fully referenced training manual (over 100 pages) is also provided.
The post-coursework consists of case studies and writing an article or presentation on history, theory and evidence. Successful completion allows to membership to the Buteyko Breathing Association (BBA), with one years' free complementary membership.

The Advanced Module considers the use of Buteyko techniques in conditions other than asthma, such as COPD and bronchiectasis, and explores how some techniques are currently utilised within Pulmonary Rehabilitation. The wider non-pharmacological management of breathlessness is also discussed, as well as an adjunct to breathing re-training. We are not running the Advanced Module at present, although it may be available in the future if there is demand.
"A really well run and enjoyable course. Catherine and Gillian are both great and extremely knowledgeable. I feel confident to begin to start using Buteyko in my practice." - Gillian Fleming, Physiotherapist, Adult & Child Module, October 2017.
