The course has been prepared by experienced Buteyko practitioners some of whom also bring the skills, experience and insights of other healing professions. It is their review of the research in the medical and scientific and medical literature.

Rosalba Courtney-Belford, N.D., D.O., Dip.Ac.

Has been practicing and teaching Osteopathy, Naturopathy and Chinese Medicine for over 20 years. She became a Buteyko practitioner in the early days of its introduction outside Russia and since that time has been able to integrate her understanding of other healing modalities to increase the effectiveness and broaden the scope of the basic Buteyko theory and techniques into Eucapnic Breathing.

Leonid Motin, Ph.D.(Physiology)

Dr Motin has worked as a research scientist at Universities in Germany and Australia. His knowledge of physiology enables him to evaluate and present overlooked physiological mechanisms underlying the eucapnic breathing. He has been able to review the majority of Dr. Buteyko writings in Russian and find diverse evidence in contemporary Western medical science confirming different aspects of Buteyko theory.
