Facilitator Trainings

Our facilitator trainings offer a systematic approach to developing skills in facilitating Restorative Breathwork.The Foundations training focuses on developing foundational skills in practicing and facilitating Restorative Breathwork. The teacher certificate trainings are our most comprehensive programs that include a practicum and mentorship. The role of a mentor is a time-honored tradition that provides the student the opportunity to work closely with an accomplished teacher in order to learn the full range of skills and techniques behind a highly skilled breathwork facilitator. Restorative Breathwork complements and integrates well with a wide variety of mind/body systems and is appropriate for both laypeople and professionals in various healing and self-development fields.
