I've been teaching the Buteyko Method since 2012. During these eight years I have helped hundreds of people to improve their health and achieve a massive improvement in their quality of life, thanks to showing them the correct and natural way to breathe.

I suffered with asthma all my life - sixty decades! - until the Buteyko Breathing Method freed me from the awful symptoms. I've a passion to share the wisdom, the benefits of the Method, using my lifelong experience of teaching.

I trained as an instructor with world famous breathing expert and author, Patrick McKeown. The Oxygen Advantage® is his development of the Buteyko Method, which I learned in 2018.

My emphasis is on the practice of the Buteyko Method. I look for ways each person can learn according to their rhythm, their individual needs, and, thereby, live their best life.

Breathing is the most important function of the body. This is about learning how to do it well. The Buteyko Method is natural and it works.

Together we will find how to incorporate the Buteyko Breathing Method into your own life in order to improve your health and quality of life.

In the personal coaching sessions I will guide you with the exercises and help with personal challenges encountered along the way.

This programme is unique and special. It is for people who are serious about learning to correct their breathing and who wish to commit to put the Buteyko Breathing Method into practice in order to improve their health, naturally.

Imagine the energy you will have when you find you can sleep in the way that nature designed, breathing easily, without any fear and without spending loads of money on medication or breathing apparatus to help you sleep.

Imagine how it would be:

  • to wake up full of energy after a great night's sleep
  • to get on with your day without struggling for air
  • to enjoy the scent of flowers in spring, with no more allergies
  • to welcome the winter months, knowing that the cold air no longer affects you.

    How amazing it would be to be so incredibly healthy!

At last, you have found a path that is scientifically proven to improve the way in which you breathe and sleep.

It's called the Buteyko Breathing Method and it will help you to do much more and better. To live a happier, healthier life can be possible. All of this is achieved through a natural process that is easy to learn, that your body already knows, but has forgotten.

"From the first moment I started to practice I felt calmer. As soon as I started, I understood that this worked."

- Alejandro, Colombia


Healthy breathing is fundamental to living well. We take care about what we eat, what we drink, to take exercise, and other daily activities. However, we don't know or take care of how we breathe and this is the most important thing of all.

When we breathe badly, for example, taking in too much air or over-breathing without knowing, using the mouth to breathe, losing sleep and sleeping poorly, every system and function of the body is affected. That is to say, the whole of the body. And, of course, our mental state may suffer.

We cannot enjoy good health if we breathe badly. As Buteyko Breathing Method instructors, we find that the majority of people simply do not know how to breathe correctly because nobody teaches us. Plus, there are many misunderstandings about breathing. Consequently, symptoms take hold and we do not function or perform as well as we should be.

There is a way to re-establish optimal, natural breathing habits through following the Buteyko Breathing Method.

"I am really well. I always have your teaching in my mind and the great things I learned on the course!"

- Kenny, Venezuela

The Buteyko Breathing Method is a natural pathway to health. It is simple and without risk.

Working alongside any medication you may be taking, and following careful, systematic lessons, I will teach you how to breathe in the natural, relaxed way that you did when you were a small child.

There is no magic pill or potion that will guarantee results. To get the wonderful improvements in your health that are found over and over again by students who study Buteyko, you will, of course, need to do the work and I will ask you to make a commitment here. This means, following the lessons, in your own time, and putting the techniques into practice. We will find out what works for you and how it can fit into your life.

I have designed the course for people who are very active as well as those who are in ill-health. You follow the course at your own pace. Even giving half an hour per day can bring about amazing results for your own health.

This course may turn out to be the best thing you have ever done

"Personally speaking, I loved it!

"It is a spectacular method and a shame it is not more widely known. I learned so much. For me, it worked to get to know what I was doing and to re-educate myself and above all, I learned to help my own health."

- Musme, Mexico

The results that you may expect are:

  • the opportunity to correct poor breathing habits which you may have not even been aware of, and which may lead to a change of life for the better
  • to have exercises which fit in with your lifestyle so you can attain and maintain good, healthy breathing habits
  • to experience less anxiety and far fewer symptoms of breathing problems such as asthma, COPD, rhinitis and allergic reactions.
  • to be able to help your family to achieve good health through your new knowledge about something so simple as breathing
  • more energy!
  • better health and the fabulous feeling of being well!

" I found the course very informative and useful, probably in ways that you did not expect. I have now completely altered my sleeping posture. I sleep either on my side or on my tummy! I do practice breathing, but I’m not consistent with it. It requires on going effort and, as sleep apneas is an illness that you do not feel, it is not so easy to remind myself of the need to change my breathing pattern. So I’ve got work to do, but you opened my eyes to a non mechanical way of dealing with sleep apnea."

My asthma was diagnosed at 2 years of age. I suffered until the Buteyko Breathing Method gave me the means to control and stop the symptoms. Patrick McKeown taught me over Skype, from Ireland to Buenos Aires! So, I know what it's like to learn something so important online.

I lost the fear of not being able to breathe. What can be worse than to be struggling for breath? I had tried many ways to find a solution but nothing got to the cause of my breathing problems like Buteyko. This approach to breathing addresses the everyday, or, in other words, how we breathe all of the time: in sleep, sports, for quiet times and for action.

I love to share this knowledge with other people. I have considerable experience as a teacher, from primary to secondary and also at adult level. Thanks to today's technology, I've been able to help people in many countries including, Spain, Mexico, Chile, UK, Venezuela, Colombia, Peru and Argentina.

I hope that the wisdom of the Buteyko Breathing method and the ease with which it can be incorporated into everyday life, will help you just as much as it has me.
