The Four Pillars of the Buteyko-Plus™ Method
- Accountability - We provide online tools where you can enter the results of your exercises and your morning breath hold time, which is a primary measure of your progress. These are reviewed regularly by our staff who will provide appropriate feedback.
- Encouragement - When and if you feel stuck, help is always available. We will reach out to you if it looks like you are in trouble, or you can phone or email for help...
- Coaching - There are open workshops each week using Zoom where you can raise and discuss any issues, or you can raise a support ticket or book a Skype one-on-one coaching session.
- Systems - The Buteyko Plus™ Program has been specifically designed to teach Buteyko effectively over the Internet. This has involved implementing a Learning Management System (LMS) for managing the lessons, and various other systems for monitoring progress, collecting, presenting and reviewing data.
The website is fully responsive, equally convenient on the desktop computer, the tablet and smart phone.
Buteyko Breathing reduces the total amount of air that you breathe in, and by emphasizing nasal breathing, ensures that the air passes through the very effective filters in the nasal passages. Together, these will greatly reduce the number of pathogens that reach your bronchial tubes and lungs, reducing your chance of infection.
In addition, the nitric oxide produced in the nasal passages is a natural bronchodilator which can make mask-wearing more tolerable and even make breathing easier if you do contract the disease. For more details see the blogpost.
