Breathwork Facilitator Training Summer 2024


The Ordinary People Academy's Breathwork Facilitator Training is a 4-month immersive and comprehensive training programme designed to provide students with the skills, knowledge, and confidence 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 the breath impacts the vagus nerve and its connection to the parasympathetic nervous system.
  • The content of a breathwork session with an in-depth study of 6 unique breathwork exercises.
  • How to hold space for breathwork; creating a trauma-informed space and basic facilitation skills.
  • 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) and how to plan for emotional and physical reactions.
  • The Business of Breathwork and how to modify for different audiences/special populations.



  • We cover a range of high and low-oxygen techniques rather than focusing on one specific method of breathing.
  • We cover both spiritual and scientific breath practices, making the training suitable for PTs and Fitness Instructors as well as Yoga Teachers and Pilates Instructors.
  • We cover 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.
  • We break down complex physiology, particularly around the vagus nerve and the impact of breathwork on the nervous system.
  • We provide tools for your own personal transformation and the confidence to incorporate these tools into your existing classes (or to create an entirely new class).
  • This is not your typical online course in which you have no interaction or are left to your own devices. This programme is HIGHLY interactive and designed to foster a sense of community among participants, with lots of direct access to Victoria.



There is no pre-requisite for this course, but the qualification has been designed for learners aged 16 years and older.

You will have time during the course to complete a case study and create a breathwork session for your client. This will then be demonstrated at your final assessment session.
