Two types of Butekyo breathing technique courses are available:
Practitioner training courses are divided into two modules. In the first module, the student works one-on-one with an approved practitioner/trainer. In the second module, the student begins working in a professional capacity under the supervision of their practitioner/trainer. Throughout this stage, the complexity of the health issues the trainee is allowed to address are restricted. Only after teaching a minimum of 50 clients can an applicant be considered for full practitioner accreditation.
Only practitioners accredited by the Butekyo Institute of Breathing and Health are authorised to teach BIM to students wishing to learn the techniques for their own benefit and practitioner/trainers have separate BIBH credentials. Look for these accreditations before choosing a Butekyo breathing technique course.
