What is the Buteyko Breathing Center?

The Buteyko Breathing Center is an international online school to learn the Buteyko Breathing Method. The Buteyko Breathing Center (formerly Buteyko Center USA) was co-founded in 2009 by Thomas Fredricksen and Sasha Yakovleva at the request of the founders of Buteyko Clinic in Moscow, Ludmila Buteyko and Andrey Novozhilov, MD. From 2009 to 2021, Sasha Yakovleva, Advanced Buteyko Specialist had been exclusively representing the Buteyko Clinic in Moscow and the Russian patent holder of the Buteyko Method in the US and other English speaking countries; in 2022, she resigned due to her commitments to writing her book and other projects.  Sasha is a primary teacher at the Center working together with other Buteyko practitioners trained by her.
