Buteyko Breathing Workshops can be arranged for Senior Communities and Places of Worship.

The Hosting Establishment

The Buteyko Breathing Method has been shown to improve quality of life measures and reduces reliance on medication for many breathing-related issues, including asthma, seasonal allergies, sleep apnea and emphysema, supported by clinical trials and a large body of annecdotal evidence. It might also be helpful for Alzheimer's and other forms of dimentia.

The Buteyko Breathing Course for Senior Citizens consists of four weekly 1-1/2 hour workshops following the introductory presentation. It is designed to provide permanent relief by correcting dysfunctional breathing habits.  Buteyko is very safe, but special precautions are observed for seniors. 

An organization wishing to host a Buteyko Breathing course should contact Dermod Wood (email: dermod.wood@gmail.com or cell: 908-310-9667).

The requirements for hosting a workshop are:

  • Making a suitable space or room available for the introductory presentation and the four weekly 1-1/2 hour workshops (the dining room works well).
  • Space for the trainer to set up a projector and screen for a video presentation.
  • Covid restrictions of the organization (social distancing, masks, etc.) will be followed.

Staff are encouraged to attend the workshops at no cost.

The Buteyko Breathing Method is a series of gentle breathing exercises that, over time, will help reduce and even eliminate the complaints above.  It has been used successfully by well-over 100,000 people worldwide, of all ages. 

Everyone is welcome to the One-hour Introductory Presentation and Q/A session.  In this, we will describe the program, what it does, and what is involved in participating.   The location, date and time of scheduled presentations are in the table below.

If you would like us to host a breathing course at your residental facility, call Dermod (cell: 908-310-9667), and he will see what he can do to make it happen.

The Buteyko Breathing Course consists of three 1-1/2 hour workshops held weekly, together with access to the online Buteyko Breathing Course.  You will have the opportunity to sign-up after the presentation.  

The course is very practical and the exercises assigned and customized for each individual. Use of the website tools and resources is entirely optional.

The  cost is $200 upon registration, but a fee waiver may be requested in case of financial hardship.  No-one will be turned away because they cannot afford to pay.

Some of the Benefits of Buteyko Breathing: 

  • More oxygen delivered to the tissues and the brain
  • Improved concentration, focus and productivity
  • Calmer mind
  • Better control of asthma and allergies
  • Less colds, chest infections, phlegm and nasal drip
  • Significantly less rhinitis
  • Improved sleep (sleep apnea, snoring, in particular)
  • Reduced breathlessness during exercise

Well over 100,000 people worldwide have been helped by the Buteyko Breathing Method, and in clinical trials in Russia, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, the UK, and Ireland it has been shown to be highly effective for a wide variety of chronic breathing-related conditions.  It is not yet widely-known or practiced in the United States, though this is changing.

The Buteyko Breathing Method consists of a series of exercises designed to change your breathing habits. The method uses nasal breathing, breath control, and breath-holding exercises to treat a wide range of health conditions, often when other more conventional treatments have been ineffective.
