Buteyko Breathing retrains your child's breathing.
Correct breathing - NOSE BREATHING - leads to an improvement in overall symptoms.
Buteyko Breathing is well researched and based in science. It is currently taught and practised in many countries including Australia, Russia, Great Britain, Ireland, Poland, Germany and Austria through an ever-expanding network of practitioners. While the underlying principals are the same, adults and children are taught very differently and in seperate classes.
Brigitte invites school age children as young as 5 years of age to enrol in her Buteyko courses. Younger children may be considered after an initial assessment.
STEPS & FAIRY BREATHING
Brigitte has developed a child centred, fun and easy to follow children's course called "STEPS" which is suitable for children 5 years and older. Children are taught on a one-on-one basis but a class for siblings can be arranged if so desired.
The STEPS are taught over 4-6 sessions of fortyfive minutes duration and a parent has to be present. The parent is taking on the "trainer" position at home, supervising the exercises. Brigitte supplies all support materials such as a colourful booklet which is easy to read, reward charts and stickers.
Complementary email support for 3 months after conclusion of course is offered to all Buteyko clients.
