Buteyko Bay Area Courses - By Dr. Artour Rakhimov
The 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 the great health traditions of medical health professionals and
scientists, including those who are now working in
University of California,
of Public Health.
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 the world's leading 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 be attentive
towards lifestyle risk factors, such as sleeping on one's back, mouth
breathing, lack of physical exercise, poor posture, nutritional deficiencies
and many other factors.
The main Buteyko Bay Area Services course which is taught in groups is
Level 2 course.
