Buteyko Breathing Instructors China
Ciaran McKeown BA, MA Counselling & Psychotherapy, FBPI
Ciaran McKeown learnt Buteyko in the early 2000s as a way of managing his asthma and anxiety. Impressed by the efficacy of the method he worked with his brother Patrick McKeown to incorporate it into his breathwork training and therapy sessions for over 15 years. During this time he has taught students with a diverse range of abilities and needs through voluntary and paid classes.
A registered counsellor and Samaritans volunteer, Ciaran believes that to be a good teacher, personal experience matters just as much as professional proficiency. He says that both are what enable you to relate to your students and find solutions that fit them.
For new students to the Buteyko method, particularly those who suffer from anxiety, he advises that they experiment with the exercises and treat the techniques as being a way to discover their breath rather than be overly demanding of themselves. At least for the first couple of weeks. This is why he prescribes every student with a unique plan.

Andrea Maria Gonzalez Cortiana – Macao, SAR
Operatic singer and musician. Bachelor’s Degree in Health Science.
Buteyko Clinic International Certified Instructor.
I found it vital to develop stress management strategies in the real world. My neuroscientist background supports the importance of controlling our autonomic nervous system and activating parasympathetic pathways to live a fulfilling life. Combining Buteyko Breathing Method, Myofunctional Therapy, and singing can dramatically improve sleep apnea (OSA). I use breathing, movement, singing, sensory awareness, yoga Nidra, and Mindfulness in my sessions. Additionally, I share scientific protocols to enhance the circadian cycles for better sleep.
Dr Xuejun Zhang, DDS PhD – Beijing, China
Dr Zhang completed her certificate as a Buteyko Instructor with Patrick McKeown from an orthodontic background.
She received her D.D.S degree in Orthodontics from Capital Medical University in China. She had been in practice in Beijing Stomatological Hospital for over 18 years as a full time orthodontist, and now she is a Medical Consultant in a Pediatric dental clinic in Beijing.
Nowadays, there is increasing awareness of the link between habitual mouth breathing and orofacial myofunctional changes and how they influence craniofacial development in children which can lead to not only malocclusion and temporomandibular disorder (TMD), but also huge airway problems.
As realised that Buteyko breathing exercises can help people achieving nasal breathing efficiently and permanently, she learned from Patrick McKeown and had been a certified Buteyko international instructor.
She is now keen to help people especially young children encouraging craniofacial development that they deserved with the help of Buteyko breathing re-education.
