Why Choose the Buteyko Method?

The current global interest in breathwork means new breathing certifications and methods are available. The Buteyko Method is one of the few techniques that has been examined and found to be effective in independent clinical trials. The first of these trials was undertaken in 1995; more than 20 years before many other methods appeared.

While Buteyko Instructor training has all the potential to provide a secure career, the Buteyko Method is not based on a market-driven trend. Nor is it positioned to exploit fear around Covid-19. Instead, the focus is on breathing re-education and its long-term health benefits.

What’s the difference between Buteyko Certificate Training and Oxygen Advantage® instructor training?

ButeykoClinic and Oxygen Advantage®  are two separate instructor trainings, albeit with some overlap.

The Buteyko Method is more targeted towards health, and focuses on asthma and respiratory problems, sleep disorders (including insomnia, snoring and sleep apnea), as well as panic disorder and anxiety. The Buteyko Method can be practiced by relatively healthy people as well as people who are quite unwell. A program for children and teenagers is also included.

Oxygen Advantage® (OA) features breathing techniques aimed at healthy people. The method is designed to improve mental and physical performance and boost recovery. It is popular amongst athletes, both recreational and professional. Programs are also included for police, military, athletes and corporates.

Each instructor training is separate and includes instructor manual, training portal, monthly refresher and materials to help with your clients.

The question comes down to – who would you like to work with?

Typically, clients who attend for Buteyko do so to improve their existing health condition(s).

Typically, clients who attend for OA do so to improve their physical or mental performance.

If you want to work with clients facing different and often challenging health problems – then the Buteyko Method is best.

If you want to work with healthy people to improve performance – then OA is best.

Should you like to follow both certifications you are entitled to $200 USD off Advanced Oxygen Advantage Instructor training (normally valued at USD 995), if you have already registered for our Buteyko Online Certificate Program.
