 I have had a lot of experience when it comes to breathing issues. I myself had asthma and spent many years caring for the health of my husband and 8 children who all had asthma and hay-fever in varying degrees. 

After being hospitalised twice in one week in May 2013 with asthma, I knew I needed to make a change. I was already on steroid inhalers, Ventolin, nasal spray, and antihistamines, yet my condition was not improving. It was time to do something more to help myself. 

I changed to a new GP who recommended I try Buteyko. I noticed improvements on the first week of the course. With my GP’s help I successfully tapered off my asthma and allergy medications within 9 months of the Buteyko course. I have not needed to take any medication for asthma since. 

My husband and children have all had the same success with the programme; not needing any asthma or allergy medication since completing the course. The elimination of my husband’s snoring was a very welcome improvement! After that success, I got my parents on the course too. They have been able to resolve issues with high blood pressure, insomnia and breathlessness. My mother has successfully tapered off her blood pressure medication with the help of her GP within a year of the course. 

 When I saw the improvements in my family’s health conditions, I knew that I had to train to be a Buteyko practitioner and help more people attain better health through breathing retraining. My training as a Buteyko Practitioner, coupled with my degrees in Bachelor of Science (Biomedical Science) and Master of Education (Special Education), as well as 15 years of teaching experience help me to deliver the Breathe Buteyko Course effectively. This life changing modality perfectly incorporates my two passions: health and teaching. 

 I currently teach and coach clients in person and online.
