You’ll step into your role as a Breathwork Instructor as you learn and practise a wide range of breathing techniques, methods and tools and experience your own breakthroughs.

You’ll also meet and bond with your tribe for life; people from all different walks of life who are as passionate about breathing well and living well as you are.

At Breathless Expeditions, our philosophy rests on the idea that you can only guide people as far and as deep as you have explored yourself, which is why we take you on a journey of discovery with your own breath, followed by creating your own instructor style.

What other say


What's covered in the training

There is a common belief that modern lifestyle plays a large role in the often dysfunctional breathing patterns found along individuals today. We will get down to the heart of the matter and explain in detail how lifestyle factors, epigenetics and neuroplasticity, but also trauma and stress impact the quality of our breathing, and more importantly, how to take matters into your own hands.

This includes a breakdown of the respiratory, nervous, endocrine and immune systems and how a well structured breathing practice serves to become the bridge between not only bodily systems and their strive towards homeostasis, balance, but also the apparent disconnect we witness all around us today. In this class, we’ll look deeper into breathing patterns and how the power of the breath can change an individual’s state. We’ll study the breathing of our ancestors, how modern society has developed “Modern-breathing” patterns and much more.

Become well-versed in the physiology of stress and how understanding a variety of breathing techniques can help you and your clients tap into a higher state of consciousness that alleviates stress and anxiety, transforms your mindset and increases productivity and creativity. You will also learn a series of techniques and approaches for diagnosing, identifying and recognizing breathing habits and patterns.

Learn to restore the natural flow of breath, by harnessing the principles of neuroplasticity, and marrying what we call the three domains of breath, Chemistry, Capacity & Cadence.

After equipping ourselves with the basics of respiratory techniques, in this class, we’ll look deeper into breathing patterns and how the power of the breath can change an individual’s state, release tension and cause lasting change.

Harness your newfound mastery of breathing chemistry, how and when to apply it and become
an alchemist for deliberate change in the quest for getting the most out of every breath. Gain insight into the biomechanical or physical aspects of breathing and explore how to reach “The perfect breath” by retraining ourselves to breathe diaphragmatically through different positions, how breathwork can release tension in the muscles and conduct breath assessments.

From why we should always try to breathe through our nose to the diaphragm (perhaps the most important yet overlooked muscle within the human body), you’ll leave knowing how to breathe your best.

After establishing the basics of respiration, we’ll look at the physiology of stress and how breathing techniques used by freedivers and yogis alike can help you to handle stress more effectively and become a more well adapted, highly functioning human being as a result.

As much as the protocols may seem different, the principles from the first recorded yogic texts on breathing to eccentric Russian doctors’ dogmatic approaches and leading sports physiologists all agree on one thing. The key lies in breathing less.

Learn to tap into secret sources of insight and clarity hidden in the untapped chambers of your ribcage and you expand your lung capacity, whilst refining the dance between Oxygen & Carbon dioxide. Learn how to apply breathwork to sports and athleticism, the boardroom and artistic endeavours.

We apply methods that allow science and spirituality to walk hand in hand towards the goals of personal healing, expanding consciousness, tapping into flow states on demand and eradicating held tension from the body.

Gain deeper insight on how to integrate, periodize and recover from deep breathing sessions. Explore important topics such as set & setting, safety and the essential components that lay the foundation for a deeply healing experience of emotional release.

Breathwork is an immensely powerful therapeutic modality. Learn how to stay centred and grounded as you explore what it means to support others through their own trauma release and transformation.

Concentrating on the neurobiology and psychology of breathing, we’ll look at how stress and changes in our environment can affect our homeostasis and how our breath becomes an essential moderator in our conscious and unconscious reactions.

Explore why the heart might hold the answer to unlocking our potential on this planet as we delve into models of therapy and schools of thought.

From the vagus nerve and polyvagal theory to heart rate variability and loads of other cool science stuff, we’ll explore how the nervous system impacts on our immune system and how regulating and restoring our breath to its natural state can help with everything from stress to asthma, eczema, autoimmune conditions and restoring harmony in our bodies.

In this class, we’ll explore how integrating breathing can act as a powerful, safe and natural self-healing process that can soothe and re-regulate the nervous system and body for greater mental, physical and emotional health.

You’ll learn how expanding the quality and quantity of breath can help clients alleviate everything mental distress, overcome physical pain, increase energy levels and transform your client’s overall wellbeing through conscious breathing.

Discover how you can connect your breathing practices to your body’s unique rhythms, but also to the rhythms of nature, the seasons and life as we explore what it means to build a long-term breathwork practice for yourself those you guide.

We’ll also delve deep into active recovery protocols, the exciting possibilities of combining breathing techniques with psychedelics, Nootropics and other modalities for creating altered states such as light and music.

frequently asked Questions

Getting a clear understanding of your goals and helping you map out your vision and direction moving forward are a big part of the breathwork teacher training. Our breathwork facilitator course is designed so that you can begin teaching breathwork, running workshops, and producing content as soon as you qualify.

Breathwork instructor certification will be granted upon completion of the training, including support with setting up insurance, liability, and indemnity. However, as part of the training, you will already be working with friends and family and the public at large as soon as you are ready.

Johannes: For everyone who trains as a Breathless breathwork instructor, your success is mine, and I will do my best to work with you to get you setup and teaching breathwork within your first few months of qualifying. This will include framing your unique position in
the market, step-by-step processes on perfecting your offerings and helping assisting myself and other instructors in live workshops to build your confidence.

Finding the right breathwork instructor training for you is far more than a list of what you’ll get.

Is this a movement you want to be part of? Do you like the culture? Do the values resonate with you? Are these the sort of people you want to hang out with and learn with and from? Do you want to work alongside and be affiliated with this group or do you just want a fancy title? If something doesn’t feel right, then it probably isn’t.

But if the message, mission and values speak to you, then you will move mountains to become part of that tribe.

As part of the Breathless family, you will be a student of life, for life. Surrounding yourself with a tribe of likeminded individuals committed to growth and bringing this method to the world is as empowering as it is worthwhile.

This is not just another personal development seminar or self-help course that promises the goods just as soon as you buy ‘the next course’. Our breathwork facilitator training is of the highest standard, with the promise not only will this be the last breathwork instructor course you’ll ever need to take but also that you will be part of a movement and a tribe who share your goals, aspirations and determination to help people learn to help themselves.

Johannes: I obtained 10 breathwork certificates before starting Breathless. Travelling the world on a shoestring, always looking to get myself in the right room, at the right time, asking the right question, I learned more about the art and science of breathing and myself then I imagined was possible but what I really took away was the importance of culture and community.

The idea that certain methods or individuals are holding onto the key, the secret or the undivulged wisdom is outdated. We’re all looking at the same research papers, distilling the same principles into practices and drawing from the greats that have come before us.

What matters most is the people, the community and the connections.

At Breathless, we offer all that and world class breathwork instructor training.

A breathwork instructor is committed to sharing and developing the world of breathing exercises. Past students guide breathwork sessions for groups in the form of workshops, teaching in the workplace and schools, coaching sports teams and yoga practitioners and working with the general public. Other breathwork instructors incorporate breathing practices into their existing work as coaches, naturopaths, health practitioners and counsellors.

For some, becoming a breathwork instructor simply means a lifelong commitment to breathing the best they can.

For others, it’s about helping their families and loved ones make the most of every breath.

The 3 month breathwork instructor training program is broken down into three phases.

Upon signing up, you will create your profile and gain access to our training platform. There you’ll find study materials, including the instructor manual, our extensive resource library, guided breathing practices and so much more.

Phase 1 consists of 10 hours of pre-recorded lectures. These are to be viewed in your own time during the course.

Phase 2 brings us together for a 5 day immersion in person training. This unique retreat brings together the practice and theory through intensive workshops, stimulating discussions and adventures in nature as you connect further with yourself and your new tribe.

Phase 3 is where you apply everything you’ve learned through our 28 day Boundless Breathwork program. You’ll receive daily recorded breathing sessions, keep a breathwork journal and join the weekly calls or view recordings if you can’t make a session. You’ll also have a mentoring session to start mapping out your pathway as a breathwork instructor.

Sign up to one of the upcoming Breathwork Instructor Trainings through the booking platform. These are listed by the dates for the 5-day immersion, but as soon as you book in you’ll receive full access to the portal, books and practices. Create your profile on the learning portal and you’re all set.

In commitment to our long term vision, we’ve built the most comprehensive learning platform in the breathwork movement to date. Inside our rapidly growing resource library, there are lectures, guided breathwork sessions and online seminars to which you will have unlimited access as a Breathless breathwork instructor.

However, we are not here to push you into anything for which you are not ready for. The 10 hours of self study materials, which are prerequisite to breathwork certification, have been adapted to suit all learning styles. Complex lectures have also been recorded in conversational podcasts to suit those with limited time and busy lifestyles. The learning platform is designed to be highly practical and compelling so as to aid in your own transformation, build your confidence and enhance your competence to become the best breathwork instructor you can be.

We want this training to be accessible to anyone who feels drawn to this work which is why we offer our breathwork instructor training.

The growth of our community, the chance to help people transform their lives and opportunity to inspire excellence in this industry is way above any financial gain.

Whilst we provide the highest possible standard of training to all levels of breathwork facilitators, we are not interested in running an elite club. We’re in this for the long run.

Some instructors will go on to run a wildly successful breathwork businesses, others will simply reap the rewards of being part of a positive movement that supports all areas of life.

We believe is that any professional not teaching breath right now is missing out on having impact, purpose and profit. Those purporting to be breathwork instructors with little or no training are causing damage to the viability of this work.

What we need is a higher standard and those willing to invest in themselves will lead the way.

We will provide intricate guidelines on pricing and establishing the value of your work as well as business coaching, marketing advice and more.

Put simply, you can expect to earn your investment back within the first 2 months of teaching.

Johannes: I built a 6 figure business from scratch in my first year of teaching. I then
invested every single dollar straight back into my learning and development as a breathing instructor, and to this day, I still do. I am committed to your success as much as you are. For me, money has never been the driving factor behind my teaching. It became simply a by-product of building the lifestyle, tribe and purpose of my dreams.

10% of all our profits are donated towards the conservation of the Great Barrier Reef and the Amazon Rainforest. This means that you’re helping support two of nature’s greatest oxygen providers and protecting these wonders for future generations as well as equipping yourself to do transformational work in others’ lives.

The field of breathwork is one of the most rapidly expanding lifestyle practices today.

With the mindfulness, yoga and meditation movements already established, breath is the new movement and it is here to stay.

More and more people are waking up to the idea that conscious breathing is one of the most powerful remedies to our modern human condition.

We are at a unique point in time where science has finally caught up with spirituality.

This is an opportunity for breathwork instructors to connect the fields of ancient wisdom with modern applications and help people optimise every breath they take, take responsibility for their own personal healing, expand their consciousness and become more grounded, centred human beings.
