The Buteyko Institute Method is a program of breathing exercises and posture, health and lifestyle guidelines to support a functional breathing pattern. The Buteyko Teacher works with each participant, looking at symptoms and relevant aspects of breathing pattern. This includes looking at posture, the rhythm, rate and pattern of breathing, the use of the diaphragm, the ability to nose breathe and the tolerance to breath hold. The program is then tailored to address the specific needs each participant. Buteyko is suitable for children from age three through to adults of any age.

In addition to the breathing exercises taught by the Buteyko Teacher, participants also learn how to monitor their breathing while engaging in daily activities.

The breathing exercises are designed to help normalise the breathing pattern and restore comfortable, natural nasal breathing.

The Buteyko Institute Method does not include herbal remedies or vitamin supplements. Participants are advised not to make any changes to prescribed medication or treatments without first consulting their prescribing medical/health practitioner.

People who are on medication for asthma may find that as their breathing improves they need less reliever medication. However, they are advised not to change any prescribed medication without consulting their doctor.
