* Note about hourly fees: If you are unhappy about these hourly fees, I suggest you visit your regional health authorities and clinical specialists and ask/discuss with them their hourly fees, and their success rates while dealing with asthma, hypertension, epilepsy, and so on. Thus get happy and rejoice since all our students who achieve normal breathing recover from lifestyle diseases. You can do the same. In addition, this mindset will nearly double the rate of your progress.
The site is generally designed for DIY learning. However, I realize that some people require additional support due to the complex nature of their health problems. If you think that you can benefit from my personal input using Skype online courses or classes, choose the right option from the Table and send me your request to be accepted for online classes with all required details related to your health. A computer with internet access (e.g., Skype) or a landline phone number will be required for learning.
How to apply for online and live breathing classes
Requirements and details:
– You need to know all basics related to breathing physiology, oxygen delivery, CO2 effects, lifestyle factors, and how breathing retraining works either from:
1. Dr. Artour’s live lecture or workshop.
3. The YouTube Playlist: Dr. Artour Intro: Breathing Retraining and Buteyko Method (NormalBreathing.com).
– You will have at least 2 hours of breathwork and 2 hours (later 3 hours) of physical exercise per day to move forward in your breathing retraining. – In case of success, you will provide a video testimonial for our classes, and your results (before and after) for over 90% of students have positive results.
– You need to provide all the required details in the form and send it filled with your email:
– If you are applying for any type of health query of health support by Dr. Artour, limit your email by 200 words. – Make sure that you write ” Skype Breathing Lessons” for the subject line (RE:) of your email – Send your email to: “dr.artour.rakhimov”, then “@”, and then “gmail.com”.
Note that online courses and live classes are normally taught once per week (often on the same day of the week) with no more than 10 days between consecutive lessons. I simply cannot hold details of all lifestyle details for a particular online student whom I do not see or interact with for more than 10 days.
This is the most popular type of support among my online students. It is especially popular among students who tried to learn themselves (DIY), but could not succeed due to too complex health problems and other concerns. For the Mini-course, make a payment below and send me an email with your request to help you. I will forward you the Student’s Questionnaire (or Personal Information Form) and the form for recording your breathing sessions. After filling this Questionnaire and sending it to me, you can also provide me with your daily log (details of your breathing exercises, morning CPs, lifestyle changes, total daily exercise, and so forth). After analyzing all these details, I will provide you with a customized program of actions (usually from 5 up to 12 lifestyle changes and ideas directly related to breathing normalization).
Thus, this option includes:
- Two Skype (or online) sessions which are 50 minutes long and spaced about 7-10 days apart
- A short follow-up online Skype session (20 minutes) about a week later (please, do not delay the follow-up class beyond 2 weeks since it is counterproductive for the progress of the student, while I cannot keep details of every student in my mind for long periods of time)
- Email support for the next 2 weeks for simple questions that can be answered with “yes” or “”no.
This teaching would usually take me about 2-3 hours of extra work to learn all details about your health and create a program specifically for your needs.
If you have more questions and need more answers, book extra classes or courses. This option is particularly effective and sufficient for real large health breakthroughs, when the student studied and applied numerous lifestyle changes and practiced breathing exercises, preferably with the Frolov or Amazing DIY breathing device. If you did not learn the Buteyko theory (CO2 effects, positive and negative lifestyle factors, etc.) behind the method, then I would need to spend more time on explaining these basics. This makes my work less effective. Hence, it would be great if you learn not only basics but also apply Learning Modules to start initial changes in your breathing (learn how to measure the CP, how to tape mouth, about sleep positions, etc.) and started practice with a breathing device. Thus, this option works more effectively if you learn info provided on Modules of this website and in my books.
The partial (5 hours) or complete (7 hours in total, or 5 lessons, 1.5 hours each) can be taught via Skype or landline phone line. If you decide to have a breathing retraining course, get educated about breathing retraining and the Buteyko method. The total number of hours you require can be significantly less if you learn more information online from my website or my YouTube and Google video clips or from the electronic book “Oxygenate yourself: breathe less”. Topics to learn are: breathing patterns and body oxygen level, CO2 effects, the CP test, Buteyko breathing method, requirements for courses, effects of lifestyle factors, etc.
You can contact me for group lessons (5 group lessons, 2 hours each, with 1-2 individual 101 sessions – 11-12 hours in total). It is possible that I am or will be in your area, or you want to invite me to visit your area. Generally, it takes 5 full-paid students to make a group. There is a section below with the title “Invite me to visit your area and have a workshop/course” with more details.
Students with 30+ s for the morning CP, less than 6.5 hours of natural sleep, and other effects of improved health can participate in the Advanced Course. The goal of the course is to achieve over 50 s for the morning CP.
Further support is provided via emails for one month only for those students who already took my course. Students who had a Mini-course receive support from 1-2 email exchanges after the class. Note that you can send only simple questions that can be answered with “yes” or “”no.
BPT (Buteyko Practitioner Training) is provided for qualified Buteyko students with over 30 s CP 24/7. This course is for those trainees who have less than 60 s CP.
This BPT course is for those students who have more than 60 s CP 24/7 (the morning CP included). You can see video testimonials of breathing teachers that I trained on this page: Training of Buteyko practitioners. The same page provides more details about this course for breathing teachers. You can also find my overview of Buteyko teacher training around the world: Buteyko Breathing Practitioner Review.
Since the traditions of Soviet/Russian Buteyko doctors, we always welcome family members joining the same course/classes as the primary student from the same family. The fee for each family member is 50% of the fee paid by the main or primary student. There is an option to pay 400 or 600 USD for Individual Partial or Full courses for family members. Click the link below (BUY NOW) and choose your fee when you are inside the ContentShelf platform.
You can pay less or nothing (even for practitioner training): exchange for your work
I have books and web pages that require proofreading and videos that I want to create. If you are a native English speaker, have time for this work, or can contribute with video creation and editing, we can organize an exchange or barter: you do your work to help me, or help with social promotion, or help with other projects that I have, and I will help you with your CP growth. You can find some details of possible types of exchanges here: Exchange Options. You may also explore this option: breathing practitioner training in exchange for your work (you can even earn money).
Invite me to visit your area and have a workshop/course
I am also available for live public lectures, workshops/classes, seminars, and cooperation in breathing education. When there are 5 or more people who wish to take a course and who are located in the same area, I can possibly travel and organize a course (depending on the country, distance, and fees paid for the course).
As Dr. Buteyko and his medical colleagues discovered, it is most effective to have classes once a week for about 5 weeks (for 5 classes in total). Nearly all my courses and classes follow this suggestion. I am not in favor of crash courses when the Buteyko method is taught during one weekend only. However, I can have courses that include only 3 workshops (about 5-6 hours each), which are taught every 2-3 weeks.
IF you can not find enough students to make a group, I can even come if you organize 2 of my lectures in your area (in community centers, schools, colleges, universities, etc.) to which you will get at least 10 people motivated to improve their health. In such cases, I can pay you some percentage of the fees that other students paid for the course.

Hello, Dr. Artour. Can I contact you somehow? I have a few questions because I would like to have some courses with you, but my cp is about 20s and I don’t know which course is good for me. That one course looked nice for me but it is from the 30s to 60s, so it may be not for me. Can I talk with you about this somehow or somewhere? Thanks for the reply.

Would you be able to help me? I am not sure what to pay or apply for help. I am a 56-year-old Irish woman with years of chronic health problems, including asthma, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, allergies, migraine, gut problems, insomnia, etc. My CP this morning was 4, following about 3 hours of sleep throughout the night. I look forward to hearing from you.

Thank you very much for your explanation. I bought your book and have now made a DIY device and will start using it.
Also my apologies for putting my same question on the ‘CO2 effects’ page as I thought this request had disappeared.
On 2016-11-22T14:08:30, Artour (mod) wrote:
You have CO2 retention in the blood, but alveoli have too little CO2, and that prevents their recovery.
With Buteyko exercises or after using breathing devices (Frolov or DIY), people with ventilation-perfusion mismatch get higher blood oxygenation as measured by pulse oximetry. That proves that their blood CO2 starts to go down towards the norm, while blood O2 increases – walking 2-3 times more and faster in a few days with no shortness of breath.

I have severe emphysema and accompanying ‘CO2 retention’. As I already store too much CO2, is the Buteyko method still appropriate, and likely to improve my symptoms and health?
Thank you for this very informative and extensive website.
