Breathwork Facilitator Training

Health First

Platinum Training Institute

This International Practitioners of Holistic Medicine accredited qualification teaches the skills, knowledge and competence required of an individual in order to work with clients on specific breathing techniques in both 1:1 or group sessions. Learners will cover: • The anatomy of the lungs; gaseous exchange; the breath-brain connection and the physical and mental benefits of breathwork. • How to hold space for breathwork; creating a trauma-informed space and basic facilitation skills. • How the breath impacts the vagus nerve and its connection to the parasympathetic nervous system. • The structure of a breathwork session and how to build momentum with music and motivational cueing (i.e.what to say and what to play). • The content of a breathwork session with an in-depth study of 6 unique breathwork exercises. • Advanced Facilitation skills – How to plan for emotional and physical reactions; how to modify for different audiences/special populations.


• StretchBodyMind covers a range of high and low oxygen techniques rather than focusing on one specific method of breathing.

• StretchBodyMind covers both spiritual and scientific breath practices, making the training suitable for PTs and Fitness Instructors as well as Yoga Teachers and Pilates Instructors.

• StretchBodyMind covers the WHY as well as the HOW of breathwork so that you can fill your classes by promoting the benefits of this life-changing work.

• StretchBodyMind breaks down complex physiology, particularly around the vagus nerve and the impact of breathwork on the nervous system.

• StretchBodyMind provides tools for your own personal transformation and the confidence to incorporate these tools into your existing classes (or to create an entirely new class).
