Free on-line training with Buteyko

Just to let you know that the Buteyko Clinic is currently offering their on-line training for children and teenagers for free due to a generous donation.  See link below:
I discovered Patrick Mckown’s book The Oxygen Advantage a couple of months ago and was fascinated to learn the importance of how you breathe not only for myself but also for those children I meet who are hyperactive, may have an ADHD diagnosis and the thousands with blocked noses and asthma.
I ran 2 teleseminars to explain the essentials to my community and I have been shocked to discover that almost no parents of ADHD children have any idea that mouth breathing, rather than nose that goes down into your belly, and has a significant connection with hyperactivity and a lot more symptoms. I have found more and more research, watched Patrick’s YouTubes and read some of his material.
The Buteyko Clinic is now offering this on-line programme for free for children and teenagers and of course their parents. I really recommend you and your child listen to the 7 short videos and download the material. I so wish I had known about this material when I was a child. When in school or using mindfulness techniques don’t forget to use nose breathing, rather than mouth breathing to create a calm environment.  
If you have read my book The Elephants in the Classroom, I talk much about skills to become grounded, correct breathing is a prerequisite to becoming calm and grounded.
