Welcome to the Buteyko Breathing Centre

On this website you will find information on Buteyko, our Skype and face-to-face courses and Weekend Workshops, and what we can do for you.

In the 1950s, Russian medical scientist Dr Konstantin Buteyko identified over 150 disorders which can be resolved by normalising the breathing and over the next 30 years developed a series of breathing exercises and strategies to do this.

The Buteyko Method
of breathing re-training has now been taught in the West for the past 18 years as a highly effective drug-free education process to enable asthma sufferers to improve their breathing and reduce or in some cases, cease, the need for asthma medication. The Method has been clinically trialled to show amazing results for Bronchial Asthma

(see here for Gisborne Hospital trial)

but normalising the breathing the Buteyko way has also been demonstrated to reduce symptoms of many more common disorders. Using the Buteyko Method can create improved quality of lfe and enhanced ability to exercise, in people with no disease symptoms.

By learning the Method you can experience the medical benefits already found by thousands of people worldwide - up to 70% less coughing, breathlessness and wheezing,and other symptoms, reduction of need for medication and improvement in quality of life, sleeping, with enhanced ability to exercise.

We have been continually working for the past 12 years to ensure your best results from learning the Buteyko Method. Let us, safely and effectively teach you to normalise your breathing patterns and increase your oxygen levels to improve your health.

We are the oldest established Buteyko practice in the UK. Our Buteyko Breathing Method practitioners are -

People often ask - Do we teach Buteyko just for Asthma?
No, Buteyko can be practised to gain relief from many health disorders. As an asthma sufferer from childhood who has benefitted massively from Buteyko, Linda is passionate about empowering adult and particularly, child asthmatics, to get relief from the debilitating symptoms of asthma.

We empower you by teaching you a proven programme of exercises and stratgegies to normalise the breathing and relieve the symptoms arising from the 150 'diseases of deep breathing' identified' by Dr. Buteyko. These conditions which can be resolved by correcting the breathing the Buteyko way, include -

  • Snoring/Sleep Apnea - see Case study article here
  • Asthma
  • Allergies/Hayfever
  • Allergic Rhinitis
  • Anxiety/stress conditions
  • Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disorder
  • Hypertension (High Blood Presssure)
  • Sinusitis
  • Chronic Fatigue Syndrome/ME
  • Migraines
  • Chronic HyperVentilation Syndrome (CHVS)
  • Panic Attacks

Do you have any of the above conditions?
Have you been taking ever-increasing amounts of medication to control your symptoms?
Have you tried every therapy under the sun?
Have you tried relaxation tapes, DVDS and self help books?
Why continue to suffer?
Learn to breathe normally with us. Restore yourself to health- safely, gently and effectively.

Please note - Buteyko works fast, you will experience benefits from Day 1 of the course. However, it is not a quick fix! It takes time and commitment to change your breathing pattern - the results are well worth it!

How do I go about learning Buteyko? Small group, or one-2-one learning? Whch is best for you?

Linda Meads training was initially in the Classical Buteyko method taught by Alexandra Stalmatski. She then qualified in the Buteyko Institute Method in 2004, and has, over the past 10 years, expanded her knowledge of normalising the breathing by further training with experienced Buteyko senior practitioners, anda course of Pranayama Yoga with Swami Ram Dev, .

"Allow yourself the opportunity to improve the quality of your life, in the way that many thousands of people worldwide have, including the practitioners of the Buteyko Breathing Centre.

We hope you can join us on a Buteyko4Asthma Workshop or a One2One Skype course soon. In the meantime you may have some questions, in which case please don't hesitate to call us to clarify anything or to book a phone consultation or a place on a course."

We look forward to hearing from you.
