Once accredited, Breathworks Mindfulness Teacher are expected to pay an annual fee of £80 to maintain accreditation. In addition, you must do the following:

  • Adhere to the UK Network Guidelines for Mindfulness Teachers and a Breathworks Code of Conduct
  • Complete an annual survey to provide information and feedback to Breathworks
  • Submit evaluation forms annually from at least one course they have run in the past year
  • Attend any required events for Breathworks teachers (no more than one per year when needed)
  • Attend at least one CPD event/year. This event can be a Breathworks event or an event offered by any member of the UK Network of Mindfulness Teacher Training Organisations
  • Attend at least one 5-7 days long meditation retreat per year

In order to continue to deepen your own mindfulness practice you are expected to attend one 5-7 day residential, silent, teacher-led retreat each year. Longer retreats allow a deeper sense of stillness and silence, providing more space to be with the fullness of your experience as its emerging. This kind of space is difficult to find in our day to day lives, which is why longer, silent retreats are so critical for mindfulness teachers. If your life circumstances (for example, raising young children or caring for an elderly parent) make it difficult for you to meet this expectation, please contact the office so we can discuss your option.

The accreditation fee is part of Breathworks teachers CPD (continual professional development). It allows us to maintain your accreditation, organise events for our teachers and provide teaching resources. It also allows access to a range of information and networking opportunities to assist you in your role.

In order to ensure that your annual accreditation fee goes directly to supporting activities that benefit accredited teachers, all fees will go directly to Breathworks CIC, rather than the Breathworks Foundation. In order to maintain accreditation, all teachers are expected to pay this fee on an annual basis.
