Buteyko Bay Area Courses - By Dr. Artour Rakhimov
Bay Area (San Francisco, San Jose, Berkley, etc.) in California has a
Buteyko breathing educator and Buteyko practitioner who provides professional
Buteyko Bay Area Services to qualified patients who suffer from various
chronic disorders and want to improve their body oxygenation and general
health using breathing retraining. This breathing teacher is Dr. Artour Rakhimov.
He will continue great health traditions of medical health professionals and
scientists, including those who are working now in
University of California,
Dr. Artour Rakhimov has been teaching the Buteyko breathing method to groups of people since 2003. He is the author of the most comprehensive book in English about the Buteyko breathing retraining medical technique. Dr. Rakhimov graduated from the Moscow State University (Honors) and teaching Buteyko, as a Buteyko practitioner, has been his main occupation since 2005. He was trained by leading world's Buteyko practitioners Ludmila Buteyko and Andrey Novozshilov, MD. Both work in the Buteyko Medical Clinic in Moscow, Russia.
The Buteyko Bay Area Services are offered for qualified people in San Francisco, San Jose, Berkley, and surrounding cities who are committed to practice since breathing retraining requires self-discipline, will power and persistence. Indeed, since the student ought to change their automatic or unconscious breathing pattern, it is necessary to take care about lifestyle risk factors, such as sleeping on one's back, mouth breathing, lack of physical exercise, poor posture, nutritional deficiencies and many others.
The main Buteyko Bay Area Services course which is taught in groups is Level 2 course.
Level 2 course "Existence" of Buteyko Bay Area Services
Many chronic disorders can be completely resolved by those students,
who adhere to guidelines and treatment programs offered by Buteyko Bay Area
Services, which can grant a money-back guarantee for up to 90% of committed students
with the following "simple or low CP diseases":
● Chronic fatigue syndrome
● Hypertension (primary)
● Angina pectoris
● Allergic rhinitis
● Hay fever
● Panic attacks/anxiety
● Sleeping problems
● Sleep apnea
The goal of Level 2 course is to achieve up to about 20-30 s for the morning CP. At this level of body oxygenation, there is no need for medication and students have no symptoms of their main health problem. Higher CPs and learning how to breathe even less is required in order to achieve complete clinical remission, including elimination of allergies; inflammation; GI, hormonal problems, and locomotor system problems.
It usually takes between 1-2 weeks and up to 1-2 months to achieve such CP2. The main course include 5 group sessions (lessons), each about 2 hours long and 2 private meetings. (Most sessions are done in a small group, but each student also has individual lessons.) During the course the students learn the breathing exercises, practice them, and get homework. Apart from breathing exercises, the Buteyko method includes teaching of healthy lifestyle factors by the Buteyko practitioner and detailed explanation of how and why these factors influence breathing.
Requirements for Level 2 course of the Buteyko Bay Area Services
Theoretical requirements: The student should have basic knowledge about
breathing, breathing patterns, CO2 effects and
effects of overbreathing (or deep breathing) on the human body. The student can get this knowledge by
a) attending the introductory lecture organized by Buteyko Bay Area Services;
b) reading the small book "Oxygenate yourself: breathe less";
c) watching my video course on Google Video or YouTube.
Personal commitment: The student will need:
- at least 1 hour every day for breathing exercises;
- at least 1 hour for suitable physical activity;
- following healthy life style factors (only those that reduce your breathing!)
Fees for the course
The fee for the course in a group is 350$. Individual lessons and phone/internet fees are 60$ per hour.
* If a person is very-very interested in learning, but cannot afford it (e.g., you are homeless, unemployed, low-income, student, or retired), they may join the existing group with certain conditions (objective situational factors, proof reading work, etc.).
Buteyko Bay Area Services Courses for children
The Buteyko Bay Area Services also teach courses to children 3-4 years and older. There are special therapeutic techniques for younger Buteyko students, including new-born, infants and toddlers. These techniques, as well as the Buteyko method, are first learned by parents and/or caretakers from the Buteyko breathing practitioner.
