Buteyko Instructor Trainer: Patrick McKeown
Over the past 11 years Patrick McKeown has helped thousands of people to substantially improve their health by incorporating the Buteyko Breathing Method into their lives. As a child and teenager Patrick McKeown visited numerous doctors and specialists in the search for the root cause of his asthma. Year after year, his medication steadily increased while his symptoms showed no sign of improving. Simply walking to school with a bag on his back was an effort that often resulted in a bout of wheezing. In 1997, after graduating from Trinity College in Dublin, Patrick happened across an article about the work of Dr Konstantin Buteyko. Patrick applied the principals of Dr Buteyko’s methods and quickly found that his asthma symptoms completely reversed, allowing him far better control over his breathing with absolutely no need for medication. Not only that, but when Patrick learned how to unblock his nose, switch to nasal breathing and calm his breathing volume towards normal levels, every facet of his health improved.
After receiving accreditation from Dr Konstantin Buteyko in 2002, Patrick has spent the last 11 years reaching out to tens of thousands of children and adults who suffer unnecessarily due to the asthmatic symptoms of wheezing and coughing. To date, he has written seven books on the subject, including; The Oxygen Advantage, Close Your Mouth, Anxiety Free: Stop Worrying and Quieten Your Mind and Asthma Free Naturally. In addition to running workshops throughout his native Ireland, each year he is invited to talk in North America, Europe and Australia on the Buteyko Method.
Patrick’s clinics in Ireland ( AsthmaCare.ie , Snoring.ie ) are of the busiest Buteyko practices in the Western world. Training with Patrick provides a unique opportunity to observe and learn how he teaches his patients according to the original method. Watching an experienced Buteyko instructor working with patients provides direct practical insight into how the method should be taught.
“Following my instructor’s training in London, I have already started to apply concepts of Buteyko Breathing in my routine surgery to my patients when appropriate and am receiving very positive feedback particulary in cases of allergic rhinitis and moderate asthma. I am convinced that this method has huge potential in terms of cost and clinical effectiveness and importantly encourages self help. It is so good that following on results of clinical trials this method is now also suggested by BTS guidelines! Your teaching style was fabulouous,comprehensive, fun and most importantly very practical. Thank you so much for everything ! “

“Attending one of Patrick’s workshop is a real blessing for me. Although I have been trained in using and teaching Buteyko before by other instructors, attending Patrick’s workshop gave me even more confidence in applying and teaching the Buteyko method.
Patrick’s very cool style and pacing gave the Buteyko course a very relaxed atmosphere which is simply perfect for it. Also, Patrick had very good audio video and printed materials which made the course easy to understand. Lastly, I am very grateful for Patrick’s generosity during the course. He seems to be very much concerned for his clients’ welfare than he is about earnings or financial matters.
