Breathwork Training for Health Practitioners
Functional and Therapeutic Breathwork is an in-depth training program for health professionals, with a focus on theoretical and practical application of the breath in the day-to-day and clinical settings. This 10 week program, consisting of 8 modules and the application of evidence based tools, will give practitioners the skills to assess and treat dysfunctional breathing, and to apply individualized protocols with confidence. Instead of focusing on one single method, the focus is on principles and how they relate to physiology, the nervous system and physical, mental and emotional states. If you understand the how and why of breathwork on a scientific level, you can confidently apply it to all situations.

This program will provide you with the knowledge base and appropriate tools necessary to apply different breathing techniques to different situations for all types of people. I have combined my 10 years of physiotherapy, clinical work and breathwork training into 10 weeks of intensive learning for you. Why? Breathwork is the fastest way to shift internal state, influence energy and emotions and enhance multiple aspects of health.
We will work together on a weekly basis with a 1-hour training call. You will receive weekly PDFs containing supporting science, guided video content and additional resources to review each week, and I will encourage you to maintain a consistent practice throughout the course. You can expect to spend 2-3 hours per week on modules. This is an experiential learning program with the expectation that you understand not just intellectually, but experientially. To teach, you must understand the felt sense of the practice.There is also the expectation that you will have ‘real world’ practice by working with willing subjects throughout the training.
