Is This Training For Me?
If you feel called to help others, and be of service, then yes- this training is for you! Some of our students have a background in wellness - working as coaches, yoga instructors, therapists, or in other ways, and have discovered that breathwork will help their clients in more ways than they currently offer. But you don't have to currently work in wellness! We also have students who have decided to make a career change and become a breathwork facilitator because breathwork has been such a powerful force for transformation in their life.
Once you begin working with the breath personally, it transforms you. Breathwork helps you learn more about yourself, drop the stress and burdens you've been carrying around, heal your relationships and connect more deeply with others, live more authentically, and more!
How can I make a difference as a breathwork facilitator?
Breathwork offers real, and sometimes immediate, results. Just one breathwork session can make a life changing impact in someone's life! Think about it - what was your first breathwork session like?
Some of the ways we help people heal through breathwork are:
- to overcome addiction or other self-destructive behaviors
- recognize they have choices, and find the courage to create positive change in their life
- overcome fear and anxiety
- be kinder and more compassionate to themselves and others
- heal from past painful experiences
- gain new insight and awareness about their life experiences and relationships
- learn to create healthy boundaries and improve relationships
- reconnect with and learn more about themselves
- find more joy and passion for life
- heal trauma and dis-ease
- and so much more!
Why is it important to be trauma-informed?
You will be holding space for people through a vulnerable process. Breathwork takes people into expanded states of consciousness, where they will can feel and be aware of more. This in itself requires a level of sensitivity and presence from the facilitator. In addition, more people have experienced and are holding trauma than most people are aware of. In our society, trauma is so prevalent that we often don't recognize it. We are swimming in an ocean of collective trauma in the way fish swim in polluted water - it's all around and affecting us in ways we aren't aware of until we begin healing. To be a trauma-informed breathwork facilitator is important because it will prepare you to recognize trauma when it presents itself and know how to best assist a person through their personal process.
Hear from some of our students:
My experience with OBI has been nothing short of incredible! The conscious community of like minded souls has been powerful for my transformation into the best version of myself! Absolutely would recommend it for anyone and everyone!
I am so grateful to you, Lisa and Debbie for creating a safe, warm and loving space in every breathwork practice and in our Breathwork Facilitator Training. I feel so energized, refreshed, nourished, more connected to myself and people around me after each session. You have a perfect mix of coaching and teaching while asking questions about what needs attention. I have experienced the feeling and breathing of oneness which was extraordinary and it's just the beginning.
I am thrilled to be a part of the Breathwork Facilitator Program at One Breath Institute. Lisa and Debbie have put together a strong program that includes an educational component with videos, articles, and books along with an experiential component with live weekly classes. The classes themselves have been incredibly powerful so far. I entered this program in part to develop stronger a relationship with my horses. In the short time I’ve been enrolled, I’ve noticed significant improvements in my connection with each of them. I’m so excited to continue the program and discover where this part of the journey takes me.
