Buteyko Breath Workshop

with Shilpa

6th & 7th April 2024 | 1.00pm – 4.00pm

“The perfect man breathes as if he does not breathe.”

~ Lao Tzu, philosopher 6th century BCE

How well do you breathe? Does it matter? Might there be a better way to breathe?


People often believe that they should be breathing deeper. However, when we breathe from the upper chest, gulping in air through the mouth before each sentence; when our habitual exhalations are short; when we snore, yawn and cough a lot in the night, and awaken in the morning feeling tired with a dry mouth and blocked nose: we are certainly over-breathing. The tendency to involuntarily and habitually over-breathe is known as chronic hyperventilation.

In the 1950s a Russian medical scientist, Professor K. P. Buteyko, discovered that the occurrence and severity of some of the most common “diseases of civilization” -Asthma, Eczema, Sleep Apnea, Insomnia & other kinds of sleep disturbances, Nasal Problems, Allergies, Panic/Anxiety, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, to name a few- are closely related to the way we breathe.

Equipped with techniques offered in this breathing workshop, practitioners have reported to experience:

• elimination of asthma and allergic symptoms
• normalisation of blood pressure, weight and cholesterol levels
• improved sleep patterns and cessation of snoring
• greater mental clarity and improved concentration
• increased energy and stamina
• improved functioning of the digestive and metabolic systems
• reduction in anxiety and other stress-related symptoms
• and more general improvements to overall well-being!

Through this study, you will:

• learn how to normalise your breathing, thereby improving your health on all levels – physical, mental and emotional.
• understand how breath affects stamina, sleep, appetite and other bodily processes.
• appreciate the relationship between mind & breath.

You will be guided by Shilpa Ghatalia, the founder of Yogshakti who has over 30 years of experience in Yoga, Pranayama & Meditation, as well as 15 years of experience teaching the Buteyko Method.

Our Buteyko Workshops Testimonials

Louise Kristjansen

participated in our online Breathe Less Live More Buteyko inspired breath workshop on June 6th 2020

I can’t believe the tremendous impact this breath workshop has had on me on so many different levels.
I have Improved my quality of sleep after I have started using the mouth tape at night.
My ability to breath hold has improved enormously within the two weeks, and I’m still progressing.
I feel much more grounded and connected, and my own daily Yoga practice has been elevated to another level. Meditation has become so much easier.
I would for sure recommend this breath workshop to anyone even someone with no yoga background. I believe it’s relevant for everyone to know about the breath and how big an impact it has on our daily life both mentally and physically.
Shilpa’s teaching techniques were spot on, easy to follow online as well, and there was always room for questions.

“I have experienced a range of benefits which have led me to believe that Buteyko improves overall health. My benefits include:
– Increased energy – I sleep 5 to 6 hours a night compared to 8 to 9 hours.
– Increased clarity – I can easily distinguish between what really matters and what doesn’t.
– Increased patience and tolerance – my parents said I am calmer and more pleasant.
– Improved ability to remain calm – I’m not affected by stress the same way.
– Improved skin complexion including some signs of improvements to a lifelong skin condition.
– Improved digestive function – I now realise my stomach aches of the past were not ‘normal’.
– The quality of my sleep has improved. I wake up feeling well rested and ready for work.

This has been a great experience for me and I really want to sustain this. Thank you for this, Shilpa. It has given me focus and made a big difference in my life.“

lrika Brunner

“3 weeks after the course I’ve lost three kilos and feel great! My migraines have diminished and I hope next month will be even better. I feel lighter, brighter, more cheerful and more focused on what’s important and to ignore what is not.“

Cong Contreras

“The amazing thing about Buteyko breathing is that not only does it have long term benefits but also instantaneous results. I find the techniques useful when I start to have allergic reactions, have constipation or find it hard to go back to sleep at night. I just do the breathing for 5-10 minutes and immediately these problems are resolved.“

Sonja Bjorshol

“10 days into the Buteyko Breathing practice and I’ve lost 3.5 kilos. I sleep much better and am more calm and alert. I have more energy than ever before. It has helped my yoga practice and cravings for caffeine and sugar have gone. I feel so much more positive and open to greater possibilities. I never knew just mere breathing alone can make such a difference to my life. I wish everyone can have the opportunity to try it for themselves.“

Dina Ibrahim

“I attended the Buteyko Workshop twice. The first time a persistent cough cleared up after the first day and everything I saw looked fresh and vivid. I was less tired, slept less but woke up very alert. I went the second time for a refresher and this time lost a lot of weight. Friends thought I had been very sick or had been on a crash diet. But I looked very well and was full of energy. A year since then, I have gone down two dress sizes and happy to say that the weight has stayed off. I don’t get ill and even if I do feel like coming down with something, Buteyko helps me. My resistance has improved tremendously.“

Koh San Tee

“I first heard about Buteyko breathing in late February 2008 from a friend who had just completed a 5-day workshop with Shilpa. Upon learning that the method can help lose weight, I immediately enrolled myself to the workshop. After just 2 days I began to notice reduced appetite and became a vegetarian without even trying. I lost 2.5 kg in 10 days by just “breathing”. My complexion became clearer and no longer needed to take a short nap in the evening to continue working through the night. I’m able to stay fresh and focus throughout the day. The method also helps in my yoga practice enabling certain poses I couldn’t do before.“

Shahrina Aziz

“The changes in my life began with an hour of Buteyko breathing 5 days in a row. It has made me happier, calmer, and able to sleep peacefully, think clearly and lose weight. Basically wonderful things were happening to me. On the whole I looked great and felt great. I also noticed the changes within me reflected outside as well, people were nicer, the world seemed wonderful and life fell into place effortlessly.“

Satya Sundaram

“I did the Buteyko breathing workshop in March 2007. I have allergic rhinitis which is kept under control with steroid sprays. The results were instant from the very first practice; my blocked and runny nose cleared and has stayed that way as long as I do the daily practice. I haven’t used the steroid spray since. Other positive changes feeling less hunger and sugar craving. I followed Shilpa’s suggestion to eat only when I was hungry. I found that I ate less and enjoyed my meals more. Two weeks after the workshop I lost three kilos without even trying. The most satisfying change is that asanas have become effortless and there is greater stillness in my meditation..“
