Why become a breathing educator?


Access to care for breathing dysfunction is poor. At BreathCoach, we are here to change that. We need breathing educators now.

Breathing dysfunction is a cause of many common symptoms of poor health including snoring, sleep apnoea, asthma and anxiety.

Learning the Buteyko technique can assist with relief from physical and emotional symptoms associated with habitual hyperventilation and other aspects of dysfunctional breathing.

Upon completion of the Mini Residency in Breathing Physiology and Breathing Training Part 1 students are 'Level One Certified BreathCoaches' and are equipped to begin Buteyko breathing training with simple cases, such as providing assistance with correction of mouth breathing, snoring, mild sleep apnoea in cases where there are no co-morbidities present. Once you have experience with simple cases you will be ready to further your educational journey as a BreathCoach.
