Why learn to teach breathwork?

Breathwork is one of the biggest meme-waves since yoga first landed.

Breathwork is here to stay, and here's why.

Almost everyone is over-stressed, with informational demands from screens, concern over the future, money trouble, life admin, work demands, family issues, the news, politics... It's relentless. 

Breathwork is meeting this climate of nervous systems that are worn out. Minds and hearts that have lost purpose and connection, people that have lost their sense of place and belonging. 

Breathwork brings us back to the centre of our living experience, we begin life with breath and the last thing we do is breathe, breath really is the centre of our life, when we make this conscious our life begins to change. 

Who is the Instructor Training for?

  1. Those who want to take a deep dive into every aspect of breathwork to understand how they can optimise mental and physical well-being for a powerful life. 

  2. Those who want to become proficient at breathwork and teach it, perhaps creating their own brand, offering online classes, working at a studio or teaching 1-2-1.

    Breathwork is a natural complementary therapy that works on its own or alongside many professions, such as a yoga teacher, mental or physical health coach, wellness coach, healthcare worker, educational worker and more.
