BUTEYKO BREATHING INSTRUCTORS MINNESOTA
Robin Kashuba – Hutchinson
Robin Kashuba, BS, NHD. Robin has had exercise-induced asthma since childhood. She moved back to Minnesota from Arizona in 2007 and found her asthma symptoms increasing. She discovered the Buteyko method through an internet search and attempted to train herself using a book. But she only learned the correct way to perform the exercises through Patrick McKeown’s training. She has been medication free since adopting the Buteyko Breathing techniques and no longer fights sleep apnea. Robin is not only a certified Buteyko instructor, but she also consults with clients on many natural health issues such as diet, exercise, and stress management. She is also a certified instructor of Quantum Touch energy healing.
Elizabeth Williams – Minneapolis
Elizabeth (Beth) Williams is an artist, a movement educator, and passionate about solving problems by finding their essential elements.
After getting her degree in Economics and Studio Art, Beth spent the early 1990’s taking a deep dive into the martial arts, getting her black belt, and ultimately owning a Kickboxing and Tae Kwon Do studio. Since then, she has worked with thousands of clients in a wide variety of movement modalities. Her focus is always on helping people feel GOOD in their bodies.
Beth was introduced to the Buteyko Method as a way to manage her asthma, and immediately saw its potential to help her clients ease chronic symptoms with simple techniques.
Beth is intentional about creating a calm, kind, and non-judgmental atmosphere in her one-on-one and group classes. Her favorite clients are committed to improving how they feel in their bodies, and are open to collaborating – combining their understanding of their own bodies and experiences with her expertise – to find solutions with lifelong benefits.
Beth Joscelyne – Minneapolis
Beth is a degree-holding naturopath and medical herbalist, and a Buteyko Breathing Method practitioner. Her business, Vida Naturopathics, is a professional and supportive health and wellness clinic, offering virtual naturopathic consultations, classes, and nutritional coaching. Vida Breathworks, is a subsidiary of Vida Naturopathics, that offers both online and in-person Buteyko Breathing Method breathworks courses.
Beth is passionate about teaching breathworks courses, having experienced first-hand what a powerful transformative tool it can be for an individual’s health. Prior to ‘discovering’ Buteyko Breathing, Beth was already heavily focused on addressing the fundamental aspects of health when working with her clients – via restoration of gut health, a focus on enhancing diet, and nutrition, and by implementing lifestyle practices to support/enhance stress resilience. When she learnt of Buteyko Breathing Method, she immediately knew it was a missing link, as how we breathe is absolutely fundamental to our physical health and mental wellbeing. If dysfunctional breathing is present, a failure to address this can undermine other efforts to restore health and wellbeing.
Vida Breathworks courses are a powerful, proactive approach to maintain good health, and take physical and mental performance to the next level. By facilitating a deeper understanding healthy breathing, Vida Breathworks courses teach participants how the breath can be used to facilitate the highest level of physical and mental health. Participants notice improvements in so many key areas of health – enhanced stress resilience, improved sleep quality, resolution of many varied symptoms, and greater physical performance, endurance and recovery.
I am located in Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA. Here I teach in-person private courses and group courses. Course venues vary. I also teach virtual courses, and offer virtual naturopathic healthy consultations.
Sandie Weitemier – White Bear Lake
Sandie is an IAOM Board Certified Orofacial Myologist™ who strives to help improve the quality of life for her clients. She received her BS degree in dental hygiene from the University of Minnesota and has received training from the International Association of Orofacial Myology.
After practicing as a clinical licensed dental hygienist for over 21 years I could not help but notice the detrimental effects that Orofacial Myofunctional Disorders has had on patients over the years. This led to my interest in the specialized field of Orofacial Myology and subsequently opening a private practice in White Bear Lake, Minnesota. At Myofunction Junction of Minnesota, I work with individuals of all ages who suffer from inappropriate muscle function and incorrect habits involving the tongue, lips, jaws and face. These disorders often include poor breathing patterns that need to be corrected in conjunction with the muscle disfunction. The goal of therapy is to treat the cause of the problem, not just alleviate the symptoms.

Kerry’s hope is to continue to help one person at a time, through the life-changing benefits of the Buteyko Breathing Method along with an airway focused myofunctional practice. Kerry works hard to maintain a strong network of like-minded professionals to collaborate with during your treatment, so that you can maximize the benefits.
