Because of a dramatic deterioration in the average health of the general population, we have decided to make our 5 day Beginner Buteyko Workshop more accessible, by removing course fees and restrictions on workshop sizes. 

Whilst we cannot deliver the same level of service and individual attention under such an arrangement, we hold the view that under the circumstances, the risks of not adopting Buteyko’s basic principles outweigh only focusing on optimal results for fewer people. 

For those people who require a more dedicated approach, particularly those with complicated situations and those who seek optimal and more difficult to achieve results, we still offer paid services via 

It is our hope that to the extent that we can, we ameliorate what is a world wide health crisis and that Buteyko’s discovery, method and approach are increasingly adopted.

Reverse chronic symptoms
& dramatically improve
your health


The Buteyko Method was developed in the 1950’s by a Russian medical scientist named Professor K.P. Buteyko.


Professor Buteyko’s exhaustive research led him to discover, that several hundred chronic diseases could be scientifically explained as a consequence of habitually breathing above the physiologically recommended norm, or chronic hyperventilation (CHVS). 


It occurred to Professor Buteyko that if he could retrain the breathing pattern so that it reverted toward the norm he could reverse these diseases.


After years of experimentation, Professor Buteyko managed to develop a process to normalise the breathing pattern, which has over the last 50+ years enabled tens of thousands of people to reverse their chronic diseases. This system or approach has become known as The Buteyko Method.

"My method is based on fundamental
laws of physiology, biochemistry, biology and
so on, and the correctness of its assumptions
are confirmed by experiments and tests."
K.P. Buteyko 
Classical Buteyko

Since its introduction to the West, Professor Buteyko's ideas have been adopted by many practitioners of varying skills. This has resulted in several derivative and diluted approaches.


It is for this reason, that few so called Buteyko Practitioners deal with serious and complex conditions. This is to be expected when you consider that their training has been minimal and often conducted by a teacher who is themselves not qualified.  


Learn Buteyko Online offers the Classical Buteyko Method, as developed by Professor Buteyko and are pleased to take on the most serious and challenging chronic health problems.

Practitioners and Facilitators at Learn Buteyko Online teach under the supervision of the most qualified and experienced practitioners in the world. 


Our head practitioner, Vladimar Sukhonosov, worked with Professor Buteyko from the mid 1970's, has taught over 30,000 people and holds a Red Diploma and an Audit Diploma - issued by K.P. Buteyko.  


Christopher Drake, was the first "Western" practitioner to be awarded with a Red Diploma from K.P. Buteyko and has taught over 20,000 people. 


A Red Diploma was traditionally awarded by K.P. Buteyko to practitioners who had worked under supervision for around six to seven years and is held by only a handful of Buteyko Practitioners in the "West".

"Now you have learnt why nature

is doing certain things and how we have to

act sensibly towards it."




K.P. Buteyko 

Hundreds of independent medical

doctors support and recommend Buteyko's Method. 

But understandably, the medical industrial

establishment prefers to ignore it. 

"Keeping in mind all the complications

that can emerge during the training, we forbid

self-training. Supervision by a specially

trained practitioner is essential"




K.P. Buteyko 

The Red
Learn buteyko breathing

The The Red Buteyko Diploma was issued by Professor Buteyko to practitioners of his method who had undergone a minimum of six years of training, under the supervision of a Senior Practitioner. 


It was only issued to his most skilful and experienced practitioners. 


Since its introduction to the "West", Professor Buteyko met and encouraged dozens of "Western" supporters, teachers and advocates of his method. Some of whom, now claim their close affiliation, but he awarded his Red Diploma's to very few, such as Christopher Drake, Jac Vidgen, Tess Graham and Aaron Lumsdaine.


In addition to a Red Diploma, our Head Practitioner, Vladimir Sukhonosov also holds an Audit Diploma, issued by Professor Buteyko, which qualifies him to assess the work of qualified practitioners, officially making him the most qualified actively engaged Buteyko Practitioner. 

From it's introduction to the "West" in the 1990's, Buteyko's Method has had dozens of positive news articles, television documentaries and reports

in medical journals. 

Tens of thousands of people all over the world have discovered that practicing Buteyko has enabled them to reverse symptoms and dramatically improve

their quality of life. 

In straightforward terms, becoming skilful with the Buteyko Method enables a person the uncommon ability, to reverse chronic symptoms and to
augment their health independently. 


The Buteyko Method is

a skill to be learnt, not a treatment

that is passively taken. The quality of results, especially with serious and complex situations, is virtually linear to the experience of the

practitioner and the conscientious 

work done by the patient.
