Courses in Totnes, South Devon

I run courses from my home in central Totnes, and sometimes from other venues. Courses vary in length, for example, you might work intensively over two half days, or you might have several 2 hour sessions over a period of weeks.

I teach small groups, and also offer individual sessions. It is an advantage to learn in a group.

I offer an Introduction to Buteyko, each month in Totnes for groups of 2 - 6. You can complete this in 3 weeks. Contact me for dates.

May 2017: May 15, 22, 29

June 2017: June 12, 19, 26

July 2017: July 17, 24, 31

August and other dates by arrangement.

From September, course days may move to Thursdays and Fridays.

Buteyko exercises are straightforward and easy to learn. It's practising the exercises at home that really gets results. Remember you are aiming to change the breathing habits of a lifetime! Allow at least 45 mins each day for your practice, in 3 sessions of 15 minutes.

Children can learn too; their exercises are different from the adult ones.

Why not just learn online? Good question!

If you have poor health, I do advise you to learn with supervision. It is safer with personal supervision, especially if you have asthma. Simple mistakes can undo all the good of the exercises, which is a waste of your time. A teacher can prevent that.

There are many Buteyko websites with information, and a few websites and videos with DIY breathing exercises, but there are problems with these:

1  They cannot give you personal support

2  You will find that guidelines vary from one website to another, but they will not explain this. It can be confusing.

3  Online exercises are one-size-fits-all, and have no regard for your individual state of health, or what medication you take.

I always start with a confidential introductory health assessment. This gives you a chance to ask questions, and it gives me a chance to accurately assess your health issues and any medication you are taking. I can also offer you better support in between training sessions.

I offer an 'Introduction to Buteyko' course at a very reasonable cost: £150 for around 10 hours training. Applies to 2 or more people training together and paying in full, in advance.

One-to-one training is priced differently: from £210, please ask for details.

Courses may vary in length and style, so fees may vary too.

You can pay for extra sessions if you need them. Retraining may take a few weeks, or a few months, depending on how much time you can give to the exercises.

Fees include 1 month follow-up support.

Please note: Other courses in the UK range from £350 - £1,000.

Safe online payment

I offer a safe online payment facility with Nochex, accepting major credit and debit cards. I also accept payment by cash or cheque.

Nochex is similar to Paypal, but it is an English company and their charges are better! You do not need to be a member. http://naturalhealthanswers.co.uk/how_to_pay.php

I am very confident about the benefits of this training. Full payment before we start, please. Anyone who learns with me, practises properly, and gains no benefit, can have a full refund, less £20 admin. Terms and conditions of this will be given during the first session.


Refunds and cancellation

Full payment by 7 days before the course starts, please. Remember to allow clearing time for cheques (5 days) or online payments (1 day).

If I, or the venue, cancel before the start, full refund.
If I, or the venue, cancel during the course, I will try to rearrange the rest of the course. If I cannot, you get a refund pro rata for how many sessions are cancelled.

If you cancel, 7 days or more before the course, full refund less £20 admin.

If you cancel less than 7 days before the course, no refund.

If you miss a session, there is no guarantee I can fit you in on another day, and there is no refund. Please check you have the time, before signing up.

Exceptions at my discretion.
