Video Conferencing and Workshop Facilitator Program

"If video conferencing technology was widely available 20 years ago, Professor Buteyko would have embraced it. The opportunity to spread his method all over the world, with qualified and experienced practitioners would have been irresistible."

Alexander Stalmatsky, Senior Buteyko Consultant and Practitioner of over 30 years. 

Online video conferencing now allows Buteyko aspirants to be trained, coached and supervised in real time by a highly qualified and experienced practitioner almost anywhere.

Now there is no need for students to struggle with ineffective DIY Buteyko books and videos or be disappointed with an inexperienced practitioner – now access to highly qualified and experienced practitioners is as close as an internet connection.

We've been running video conference workshops in the UK, US and Europe for several years now - and we've become experienced in the practical issues, to ensure that the same if not better results than with regular workshops are achieved.

An opportunity

Buteyko workshop facilitators have the opportunity to organize and host Buteyko workshops for friends’, family or professionally under the care and supervision of a qualified Buteyko Practitioner.

For those interested in one day becoming a Practitioner, facilitating LearnButeyko video conference workshops provides real time experience in dealing with real people and developing real skills – all under the auspices of a highly qualified Buteyko Practitioner. In this way, you not only will develop experience – students will also have the best possible opportunity to attain the results which have made Buteyko famous. Compare this with a theoretical practitioner course that costs thousands and leaves you with little or no real experience. 

Draw on decades of experience

Even active Buteyko Practitioners who wish to broaden their skills and treat conditions in which they are presently inexperienced can benefit enormously. Developing the skills and experience to deal with chronic fatigue, diabetes, emphysema and other serious conditions can invigorate your practice. Why only treat asthma and sleep apnea when you can successfully manage other conditions?

Consider running workshops with some of the world’s most experienced practitioners such as Alexander Stalmatsky or Vladimir Sukonosov, who have treated tens of thousands of people with Buteyko’s Method and are intimately familiar with the most serious and complex health problems.

Small outlay - satisfying rewards

The Learnbuteyko Facilitator Program is open to Buteyko students and existing Buteyko Practitioners. Those who have no experience in conducting a Buteyko workshop will need to undergo some basic and inexpensive facilitator training which can be done online. You will also need some basic equipment such as a reliable laptop, a screen and of course a good internet connection.

LearnButeyko facilitators will be entitled to participate in an appropriate income sharing arrangement. So if you can connect with people and have organizational skills, you can expect to be rewarded for your efforts – in addition to the satisfaction of facilitating profound health benefits.

"At first we had some real doubts about the practicality of workshops being supported via video conferencing.

Would the students like the idea? Would a practitioner be able to properly monitior the situation? It turned out that students generally like it very much, probably because questions about their particular situation can be addressed from an experienced perspective. This is critical for those who suffer with complex diseases - if good results are going to be obtained.

Many inexperienced practitioners are in a double bind - they can't treat serious diseases because they lack experience - they can't get experience because they can't attract those who have serious conditions - and even if they could, they can't get results. As a result their practices atrophy - they can't develop a reputation for extraordinary results and many simply give up. You won't build a viable Buteyko practice only treating blocked noses and allergies. Perhaps as many as 70% of practitioners that have undergone practitioner training either no longer practice or do very little.

The practical costs of working with or inviting an experienced practitioner for on going training are prohibitive. And one can do course after course, but there is no substitute for real time experience.

How can practitioners scattered all over the world and their students get access to real time, result producing expertise?

It looks as though we've found a solution. "

"I regularly conduct workshops with video conferencing support and it has been a tremendous boost to my Buteyko practice.

Workshops are easier to promote when someone with a longstanding reputation is involved. You can take more students, even very difficult cases, because an experienced practitioner is close to hand. And the students very much appreciate having the real time immediate access to an experienced practitioner. Most importantly results have been excellent".

Martha Roe, Associate Practitioner, UK.

"Students are much more confident when their questions are answered by someone who is actually familiar wit
h their particular situation.

I recently conducted a series of workshops all over the Netherlands which were supported with video conferencing and we had large classes and still managed to get excellent results, even with difficult cases  - which I could not have obtained by myself. 

Eduard Reuvers, Associate Practitioner, The Netherlands.


"I conduct workshops with video conferencing support in the US and the students are very happy to have expertise, not otherwise available to them on hand.

And my own practical experience has grown enormously. The costs of having an experienced practitioner at my workshops would otherwise be prohibitive".

Ryan Bowie, Associate Practitioner, United States.
