Once accredited, Breathworks Mindfulness Teachers pay an annual fee of £80 to maintain accreditation. In addition, they must do the following:


Adhere to the BAMBA Good Practice Guidelines  (GPG) (previously the UK Network of Mindfulness-Based Teacher Trainers) and the Breathworks Code of Conduct.


Having on-going mindfulness supervision is an important part of the good practice requirements for teachers of mindfulness-based courses as set out by BAMBA GPG.


Complete a short annual survey to help Breathworks report on its social impact and provide information and feedback about who you are reaching with mindfulness (sent at the start of each calendar year).


Attend the annual teachers gathering with Breathworks founder and team or watch the recording.


Attend at least one CPD event/year. This event can be a Breathworks event or an event offered by any BAMBA member organisation.


Attend at least one 4 - 5 day long meditation retreat per year. This can be broken down into 1, 2 or 3 day events if you have caring responsibilities or health needs. This can be a Breathworks event, although it doesn't need to be. This retreat experience deepens your own practice, providing more space and stillness for the fullness of your experience to emerge.  This can be residential or online, be teacher led and include significant periods of silence.

Retreats allow a deeper sense of stillness and silence, providing more space to be with the fullness of your experience as it's emerging. This kind of space is difficult to find in our day to day lives, which is why 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 options.
