The Buteyko method is being used by pupils at St Maurice’s High School as a way of dealing with conditions such as asthma.

PE teacher Michael Hughes recently held a work shop in the school to show pupils the benefits of using the breathing technique. Those who use the Buteyko are taught to retrain their breathing and this helps reduce the symptoms of the condition they are suffering from.
