Training Programme Application Forms

For those who would like to apply for Breathworks Teacher Training (please check prerequisites before you begin this process).

Application of Skills

Upon completion of Introductory Training (TTi), students may choose, in consultation with the training team, to apply the skills they've learned during TTi. They can do this by supporting a course, or in some cases, running an independently led or co-led practice course. They then attend Advanced Training (TTa), where they will deepen their understanding and skills in delivering Breathworks courses. Most students choose to wait until after they've completed TTa to do a practice course.

We ask all students not to plan a Practice Course until they've attended TTi and consulted with the training team. 

The course will be supervised by a senior Breathworks trainer.

Students will:

  • write a weekly reflective journal
  • receive advice and support from their supervisor
  • submit participant evaluation forms after the course
  • discuss appropriate next steps with their supervisor

A certificate of attendance will be given on completion of each course.
