Tom van der Meij IMGTom van der Meij – Valais, Switzerland

I came across the Buteyko Method when searching for answers to help my oldest son, who had his tonsils removed after we noticed obstructive sleep apnoea. The medical intervention of course helped, but it did not address the root cause. My child was still snoring after the operation and had other symptoms that now make sense due to my increased knowledge of breathing mechanics and dysfunctional breathing.

As a functional trainer and with knowledge in physical rehabilitation, I now combine these skills with breathing techniques to help kids and adults get a better quality of life.

Typically, my clients are parents and their children who are experiencing difficulties in everyday life due to asthma, sleep apnoea, hyperactivity, anxiety, or other breath related symptoms.

Their biggest problem is not knowing how to address and reduce symptoms, which are often created by dysfunctional breathing patterns, and can have a big impact on the overall health of the family.

Through the benefits of breathing methods and a holistic approach, I help them create a better foundation to achieve sustainable results.

rolf duda imgRolf Duda – Thun, Switzerland

Ich bin Rolf Duda, Atemcoach, Biohacker und Trainer der Buteyko Methode.

Als Sportler, Unternehmer und Abenteurer stelle ich hohe Ansprüche an mich selbst. Um diesen Ansprüchen gerecht zu werden, verfolge ich das Ziel, immer die beste Version meiner Selbst zu sein. Dabei geht es mir nicht um Maximierung und auch nicht um immer mehr und immer besser. Ich möchte einfach Zugriff auf eben das Potential, das mir in meiner momentanen Lebensphase zur Verfügung steht.

Durch viele Weiterbildungen, ständiges Lernen und die Bereitschaft zu unzähligen Selbstexperimenten komme ich meinem Ziel kontinuierlich näher. Seit 2016 vermittle ich dieses Wissen auch anderen Menschen und helfe jedem sein wahres Potential zu entfalten.
Hierbei ist die Funktionsweise unseres autonomen Nervensystems (ANS) das für mich entscheidende Puzzleteil. Verstehen wir, wie und warum unser Körper auf bestimmte Reize reagiert, können wir genau dort ansetzen. Unsere Atmung verdient dabei besondere Aufmerksamkeit, denn sie ist der Schlüssel zu unserem ANS. Durch eine bewusste Atmung können wir in jeder Situation regulierend in den Prozess eingreifen, diesen unterstützen oder auch in eine andere Richtung lenken. Wir können unsere Stimmung verändern, unseren Blutkreislauf beschleunigen oder verlangsamen und nach Belieben auf verschiedene Mentalebenen zugreifen.

Eine Kombination aus Kältetraining und bewusster Atmung hat sich dabei für mich als «die» Wunderwaffe herauskristallisiert. Beides sind potente Werkzeuge, die mir helfen, einen direkten Zugang zu meinem inneren Selbst zu finden und in einen Dialog mit mir zu treten.

Welche Resultate können wir gemeinsam erreichen?

  • Höheres Wohlbefinden über den gesamten Tag,
  • Mehr Performance im Sport und bei der Arbeit
  • Besseren Schlaf
  • Weniger Stress

Gerne nehme ich auch Dich auf diese spannende Reise mit. In meinen Kanälen und Kursen biete ich jedem Interessierten die Möglichkeit, mich und meine Arbeit persönlich kennenzulernen. Die Onlinekurse sind kostenlos und finden in regelmässigen Abständen statt. Fülle hierzu einfach das Kontaktformular auf meiner Seite aus und du bekommst einen Zugangslink zu der Informationsveranstaltung. Ich freue mich auf dich!

Kele Kristof vagyok, fizioterapeutaként diplomàztam BSc szinten, Magyarorszàgon.

Jelenleg Svàjcban, Luzern kantonban élek és dolgozom egy fizioteràpiàval foglalkozo praxisban, valamint egy fitness és erőnléti edzéssel foglalkozó edzöteremben.

Munkàm soràn szàmos különféle pàcienssel dolgozom együtt, úgy mint traumàs sérüléssel , ortopédiai problémàval, pulmonológiai gondokkal érkező emberek, valamint kézilabdàzokkal, labdarúgókkal és különböző jeges sportot űzők.

Tinédzser koromban asztmàval, súlyos allergiàval és alvàs problémàkkal küzdöttem. Ebben az idöben talàltam rà a Buteyko módszerrel, ami a folyamatos gyakorlàson keresztül segített megszabadulni a tünetektől és segített ujra visszaadni a légzés szabadsàgàt, hogy elkezdhessek korlàtok nélkül sportolni, élni.

Jelenleg leginkàbb asztmàval, szorongàsos panaszokkal és alvàs problémàkkal küzdő felnőttekkel és tinédzserekkel foglalkoztam.

My name is Kristof Kele. I was graduated as a physiotherapist BSc in Hungary.

I’m currently living and working in Switzerland, in kanton Luzern. I’m working in a private physiotherapy praxis and fitness faculty.

During my practice I worked with different kind of patients, like traumatically injured, orthopedically, pulmonology affected patients and handball, soccer players and ice sport athletes.

As a teenager I was heavily restricted by severe asthma, allergies and sleep disorders. At that time I’ve found this method, Buteyko, which through the consecutive practice has helped me to get free from my symptoms and to give back the feeling of careless breathing, sporting and living.

At this time I’m mostly working with adults and teenagers, who are dealing with asthma, panic and sleep disorders.

IMG20221104131842Stefano Albertella – Ticino

Ciao! Mi chiamo Stefano Albertella e sono un istruttore certificato del metodo Buteyko. Vivo in Ticino, nella Svizzera italiana.

Ho iniziato il mio percorso professionale 15 anni fa nel ramo sanitario, integrandolo con abilità di coaching e scoprendo la mia nicchia ideale nella rieducazione respiratoria. Sono dell’idea che la respirazione disfunzionale stia diventando una piaga nella realtà odierna di questo moderno, iperconnesso e stressogeno mondo. Credo fermamente che riprendendo il controllo del nostro respiro ci permetterà di risolvere molte delle condizioni patologiche venutesi a creare negli ultimi decenni.

Sono un istruttore del metodo Buteyko ma mi occupo anche di Breathwork trasformazionale nell’ottica di un lavoro sulle emozioni represse e sui traumi del passato. Ho fondato la mia azienda ‘Theta Breathwork’ con l’obiettivo di rieducare le persone a respirare in maniera funzionale, portandole così a dipendere il meno possibile da soluzioni fittizie o temporanee quali le sostanze chimiche e a riscoprire una maggior naturale condizione di equilibrio e di salute.

Per questo offro un ventaglio di servizi che copre ogni forma di difficoltà o disturbo fisico, mentale e spirituale. La respirazione ha un potere preventivo e curativo immenso e dobbiamo assolutamente riappropriarcene.

Possono rivolgersi a me bambini, adolescenti ed adulti, in forma di sessioni individuali oppure di gruppo. Mi potete trovare a Camorino, in via al Gagiurasc 12, oppure, per le lezioni di Buteyko, via Zoom.

Contattami, ti insegno a respirare!

Helena image 002Helena Hefti Wenger – Bern

Eigentlich wollte ich nur meine Angst vor dem Luft anhalten unter Wasser verlieren. Mein erster Freitauchkurs im Jahr 2015 hat aber viel mehr verändert und meine Begeisterung für die Atmung entfacht. Es entsteht eine enorme Kraft, wenn wir lernen, wie unsere Atmung wirklich funktioniert und wir sie richtig einsetzen können. Dies weiterzugeben und mitzuerleben, wie rasch sich die mentale und körperliche Gesundheit und Leistung meiner Kund*Innen verbessern kann, sehe ich als riesiges Privileg. Kontaktiere mich, wenn du möchtest, dass ich dich oder dein Kind auf dem Weg zu einem starken Atem unterstütze. Unabhängig davon, ob du an Atemproblemen leidest oder gesund bist und deine sportliche Leistung verbessern willst. Neben Buteyko kann ich dich auch mit meinem Wissen und meiner jahrelangen Erfahrung als Oxygen Advantage und Wim Hof Instruktorin und Freitaucherin begleiten. Wir können uns live oder online treffen und in Deutsch, Französisch, Englisch oder Spanisch austauschen. Alles andere erfährst du auf meiner Webseite oder wenn du mir eine Email schreibst. Ich freue mich auf dich!

Initially, I just wanted to lose my fear of holding my breath under water. But my first freediving course in 2015 changed much more and ignited my enthusiasm for breathing. There is a tremendous power, that comes from learning how our breathing really works and how to use it properly. I consider it a huge privilege to pass this on and witness how quickly my clients mental and physical health and performance can improve. Contact me if you would like me to support you or your child on the path to strong breathing. Whether you suffer from breathing problems or are healthy and want to improve your athletic performance. Besides Buteyko, I can also guide you with my knowledge and years of experience as an Oxygen Advantage and Wim Hof instructor and free diver. We can meet live or online and exchange in German, French, English or Spanish. You can find out everything else on my website or by sending me an email. I am looking forward to meeting you!

Marc Hagmann - Zurich Marc Hagmann – Kreuzlingen

Hello, my name is Marc.

The power of breath has always fascinated and occupied me as a therapist and coach. Especially when it comes to relaxation and focus, the breath is never far away. Whether it’s autogenic training, progressive muscle relaxation, or meditation – the breath plays a significant role. As a hypnotherapist, I also often work with the power of breath to induce and deepen a trance state.

My clients come to me with various issues, and breathwork is always one of the first and simplest tools I provide them with. As a coping skill breathing techniques can help with panic attacks, pain, intense nervousness, or many other acute situations quickly and effectively in their everyday lives.

Thanks to the Buteyko method, I can help my clients with a tool that goes beyond defusing acute situations. Sleep disorders, asthma, hyperventilation, and/or mouth breathing are often part of the underlying causes that can eventually become acute issues. Therefore, the Buteyko method helps correct an underlying problem, such as dysfunctional breathing, to alleviate or even eliminate subsequent problems.

Areas in which I can assist you:
panic attacks, compulsions, sleep disorders, burnout, inner restlessness, anxiety disorders, depression, chronic pain, impulse control disorders, blockages, addictions, lack of resilience, and lack of discipline.
