Viv is Buteyko practitioner with over 6 years’ experience. She is a practitioner member of the Buteyko Institute of Breathing and Health (BIBH) and also holds a Diploma in Life Coaching. Viv's background is in teaching and nursing. For over 25 years, Viv struggled with severe asthma symptoms. The illness ruled her life, forcing her to give up many of the activities she loved. Her life changed forever when she learnt the Buteyko Breathing Method and she has been both symptom free and medication free ever since.
Viv trained in Brisbane with Jennifer Stark, a world authority on the Buteyko Method. She now practises from her clinic, Wellness Works in Queenstown, South Island.
