Breath Coach Practitioner Training

Coming 2024 :: Dates TBC

Ready to join a revolutionary movement, powered by conscious breath?

  • Are you a health professional, allied health therapist or healer with a desire to learn Conscious Breathing techniques to support your clients (& you!) ?
  • Are you someone who’s experienced the benefits of conscious breath and would like to share it with others?
  • Have you been searching for additional tools to address stress, anxiety, depression and the effects of trauma?
  • Would you like your clients to have some extra skills that could empower them to take charge of their wellbeing?

Modern Conscious Breath practices trace back to lineages thousands of years old. Now there’s scientific research to back it up.

The benefits of better breathing have far reaching effects on our overall health and wellbeing.

In Australia, the annual cost of mental health is around $180 billion. Clearly our ‘civilised’ society is not coping under the constant pressure and stress of modern life. Many people are choosing to explore new and refreshing ways to address their stress, anxiety, overwhelm and the effects of trauma.

Breathwork is quickly becoming the ‘new Yoga’ because of its calming effect on the nervous system and its ability to easily access and stabalise the body/mind connection. This voluntary style of breathing, of which there are many variations, requires us to engage our awareness to influence the breath and therefore its effect on the brain and body. Conscious Breathing serves us by harmonising the nervous system, bringing us out of states of stress and into a place of relaxation and clarity.

As a health care provider, healer or allied health professional, having a variety of simple and easy to implement breath-awareness techniques in your tool kit is a valuable addition to your practice and a life-long gift to your clients. The good news is you don’t need years of study to gain the skills to make a difference in this area.

Become a certified Breath Coach Practitioner and support your clients on their journey of optimal health and wellbeing.

Meet Karlyn, your lead trainer….

Karlyn’s deep and intimate journey with the conscious breath spans over 20 years. Stumbling upon Rebirthing Breathwork at the age of 19, she discovered the immensity of its power to transform one’s experience of life. In conjunction with a consistent yoga practice she was able to overcome depression, anxiety, eating disorders and a multitude of other self-loathing habits and create a life of joy and purpose.

In 2004, Karlyn qualified as a Breathwork Mastery Practitioner, training to an Australian Government Diploma standard, the highest professional standard and most comprehensive training available on the planet at that time. Since then she’s had the privilege of facilitating thousands of individuals, hundreds of groups, workshops and trainings and has organised events for international therapists/trainers. In addition, she also held committee positions with the British Rebirth Society and the International Breathwork Foundation for many years and travelled the globe to attend the Global Inspiration Conferences. She’s currently undertaking an in-depth traditional Pranayama training with a leader in the field, Gregor Maehle.

Karlyn’s passion is in ensuring a high quality, comprehensive breathwork training and to see breathwork available as an option in Allied Health. Her work is trauma-sensitive and the focus is on soothing the nervous system, integration of unresolved past events and teaching simple breathing techniques that anyone can use to support and enhance daily life. She practices as an insured Professional Member of the IICT and is in the process of becoming an Approved Training Provider. This will enable the Breath Coach Practitioner Training to be internationally certified.
