The most immediate, thorough and complete path of
personal and professional breathwork development.
JOIN US FOR A 8-MONTH, LIFE-CHANGING JOURNEY, BEGINNING MARCH 5TH
The Alchemy of Breath facilitator training is not only about learning to facilitate breathwork-it's about exploring your greatest human potential. You'll embark on the journey of the hero, becoming the author of your own life, stepping into your own personal greatness and learning how to show up authentically in the world, no matter the situation.
Whether you're a complete newbie or a competent facilitator, this training will meet you where you are. Together we develop your particular strengths and do the ongoing work to heal the parts of you that need attention and love, with the knowledge that when you conquer your biggest challenges, you unlock your greatest gifts.
Join Anthony, the AoB team, and students from all over the world to learn the power of breathwork facilitation.
HERE'S WHAT YOU CAN LOOK FORWARD TO:
The Alchemy of Breath Facilitator Certification is not only the most comprehensive and widely accredited breathwork training on the market, but it's also structured in a way that engages, compels and permits you to put theory into practice in your own customised way.
The length and time for integration gives you space to embark on your own journey, explore your personal style, and embody the theory, concepts and practices we teach. Perhaps this is why so many people who are already facilitators of the healing arts come to us-because the thoroughness of our training brings them to an unequalled level of professionalism.
HERE'S WHAT THE 8 MONTHS INCLUDES:
topics we cover:
These simple co-commitments provide us with the code of behaviour we will agree to before starting the training together. They will do a lot more than that too! You will find yourself seeking relationships with others that are prepared to make them because they make so much difference! In just 6 pages you will learn how to transform dull, repetitive, stuck relationships into vibrant, co-creative and fun relationships.
Alchemy, Philosophy and Felt Sense
Discover the roots of our philosophy and how it all works. Developing your own Felt Sense, you will learn to trust your own intuition, to understand the core beliefs that are held by so many in a different way, and to use your own body as a guide to ways to facilitate.
History of Breathwork
This class will give you a foundational understanding of when breathwork started, and the journey it has made to get where it is today. We discuss different kinds of breathwork, how they’re used and where AoB fits in the picture.
Preparation of Space
In this module, you’ll learn how to prepare yourself to facilitate, logistics to be taken care of before you begin, and what processes help us avoid bringing personal problems into a session.
Receiving before you Give
Perhaps the most common mistake we all make is not feeling our client or group before we do anything. You will learn to the nuances of energy amongst your breathers, what to watch for and how to read body language. All this will help you address everyone, include those that feel left out, and support a feeling of safety for all.
What are the things that need to be explained to breathers before they begin? How will you frame the event, either for one breather or a group of 500? Having ‘received before you give’, how will you deliver the information in a way that everyone understands? In this lesson, you will learn the entire list of potential issues that need to be introduced in a successful introduction.
Voice and Language
Learn the secrets of how to use your voice in a more effective way and how to get your breather(s) to do the same too. We’ll also explore the use of language as a whole and I guarantee there are things that you don't already know!
The flow of Music
This is a more technical class that will prepare you for any session. Create playlists, use Garage Band to record your own downloadable recordings, understand how to source royalty free music and much more!
What exercises would you like your group or individual to do? What theme would you like to create? There are so many choices to be made, and we will be exploring them with you, and sharing the list from our archive too.
The Power of Inquiry
One of the unique tools of AoB, developed over years by Anthony in his coaching practice, these techniques are used to support trust in your client, empower them towards their own understandings, use both sides of the brain to consider and reflect and to stretch awareness.
Handling Difficult Situations
What could go wrong in a breathwork? Here we will look at the list we have compiled over the years, and show you the ways to deal with them. Bring your fears and let's breathe into them together.
Training Your Team & Running Groups
This can make all the difference to a session. A well-prepared team can create the space for you to stay in your genius. What are all the things you have to consider?
Grounding & Clearing
At the end of a session, you need to make sure that your breather(s) are grounded and ready to leave the room. What methods can you use? Explore together, discover your own way and also access our archive to select the ones that work best for you.
Business Marketing and Outreach
Once certified you may choose to integrate your Breathwork Practice with something you already do, or perhaps you wish to further your future through Mentorship Program to become an AoB Master of Breath. Whatever you decide, whether to work with groups, single people, or on the internet, we want to see you soar. We will discuss the varied approaches and their challenges so you can make the right choice.
The Breath is the Teacher
The Breath knows no hierarchy, yet leaders are required. This class is about the surrender to your inner guide that is required in order to serve in a clean way.
The Student Direction
This is our final class before BreathCamp and covers anything that remains unclear. We will recap the most important elements that you request us to. We will also talk about BreathCamp, any last ideas or concerns. Finally, we will have a closing ceremony to recognise what we have accomplished and to celebrate the transition from virtual to real!
The Alchemy of Breath facilitation certification is one of the only courses available that's accredited by two different institutions:
Once You're accredited, then what?
BRINGING THE BREATH INTO YOUR LIFE
You can apply your newfound skills in many different areas, such as Child Development, Corporate HR and Creative Development, Therapy, Emerging Consciousness, Mid-Life transformations, Health and Wellbeing, and Philanthropy. You can incorporate breathwork into your current practice if you're a yoga instructor, life coach, hypnotherapist, bodywork specialist or psychotherapist-anything that involves an inner journey to self-discovery. The breath can be used in a myriad of ways, and you will be taught all the technical aspects you need to start your own practice or to incorporate it into your current one.
BE THE CHANGE YOU WANT TO SEE IN THE WORLD
Breathwork will empower you to be the change you want to see in the world. Many of us feel called to address the problems that exist in the world today, but we don't know where to start. It's overwhelming and yet, we can no longer sit by and do nothing. There is a way to change things and it begins now, with the next choice you make.
WHY TRAIN WITH US?
For the first time in my life I met a school, who gave me such support and the right tools, to go really deep in my process, release traumas, let go of old patterns, and be present, with a crystal clear mind and a loving heart. Anthony’s and the whole team’s presence allowed so much healing in me, for which I’ll be eternally grateful!
- Rita Corrao Velez
The Facilitators Training has changed my life. It is possible to live our unique Soul’s gifts, to align with the expression our authentic purpose, abundance and deep fulfilment.
- Monika Reimann
My breathwork experience with Anthony and Alchemy of Breath through festival workshops, Seeds of Alchemy and now the Facilitators Training has been a profound and powerful life tool in my personal journey. It creates the space for deep insight, connection and transformation in a safe and loving container. The work is not only powerful during a session but one that is easily available to integrate into everyday life. I deeply recommend Alchemy of Breath as an incredible experience to harness the power of true presence and connection.
- Tanya Lopez
The training is definitely something I felt called to do after Seeds of Alchemy 2-day immersion. Breathwork continues to open doors and the training allows me to fully investigate and be supported in my experiences. I feel like I am growing and opening towards life’s untapped potential. Also, becoming part of an inspiring like-minded community on a global scale is a great feeling!
- Hannah Goodman
My most profound experience from the AoB Facilitators Training with Anthony was the amazing commitment, presence and genuine gentlemanly support he had for the training and each of us. Balanced in this rare precious container which him masterfully creates, I was able to go to the depths of myself and find liberating strength in my vulnerability – among other expansive enlightening awarenesses. I have such huge gratitude for the caliber and quality of this work and am honoured to be continually growing and breathing in these realms. With abundant love and appreciation.
I will be forever grateful as the Facilitators Training program impacted my life in so many ways at the perfect time. This course has a unique combination of both technical breathwork facilitation training and personal inner development. No matter how many layers you have already peeled back there is something right now you are being called to and this training will support that next step. I have been both a student and a mentor in the program and both times the calling and the transformation has been profound for myself and everyone I have seen go through this incredible experience.
- Keli Carpenter
Starting the training with the AOB was one of the best decisions in my life. To meet up consistently over a long period of time, really gave me the opportunity to dive deep into my own inner inquiry. It was so much more than a training to me. It’s deep and healing work. It was connection to myself and to the group. It was expansion, stepping out of my comfort zone, it was growth; it was one step closer to becoming the person I am meant to be.
I found my purpose! Anthony’s beautiful way of teaching, and his artistic and poetic way of using his words really inspired me and still does. His ability to create such a solid and safe container, helped me a lot to find the strength to dig deep. I have nothing but love for this man and I will be forever grateful and proud to call him my teacher.
- Marianna Manderscheid
The decision to train as a breathwork facilitator was hands down one of the best decisions I've ever made in my life. As a licensed bodyworker, I had already just started a cranio-sacral training when deciding to follow my heart and switch to breathwork instead, and I've honestly never looked back. The combined use of personal process and structured teaching has grown me as a person and dramatically changed the course of my professional career as a result.
Anthony's insight and wisdom as the foundational cornerstone were exemplary and held me gently but firmly accountable throughout. I found my passion, I found my unique perspective on the breath (which is encouraged for all students), and I'm now deeply honoured to be able to support the training of new students in this life affirming work. If you are hesitating, LEAP! It's a decision you will never regret!

WHY TRAIN WITH US?
TIME AND COST investment:
THIS IS A 400-HOUR CERTIFICATION PROGRAM
The next course begins with an Open Orientation held on March 5 and is suitable for Europe/USA time zones.
When can I start teaching?
That depends on you! We want you to begin practicing as soon as you can. To become a Certified Facilitator, you will have to finish the training; however, we want you to be working with friends, family and the public at large as soon as you are ready. You will declare yourself a student until your certificate is earned, and until then, you will be gaining hours of accreditation as a student facilitator.
What if I can’t make it live to BreathCamp?
You are invited to any and all BreathCamps, and if there isn’t one in your area this time, then another upcoming one may be closer for you. You can also come back to BreathCamps as many times as you want.
If for example, there is one closer to you, but before you finish the training, you can come to that too. In fact, you will find it one of the most inspiring events of your life!
For those with very special circumstances, it is possible to graduate without attending BreathCamp. This requires approval and the program will have to be tailor-made to your requirements.
Why do I need another Facilitator certificate?
No matter where you are on your journey, no matter how experienced or new you are to this path or profession, it’s about you truly being you. Within this course we place as much importance on the inner journey you make to become the best facilitator possible. What’s the next level you are being called to? This program will support that.
What does Facilitator mean?
Facilitator means that you are teaching people how to breathe. You will be qualified to facilitate and hold groups or one-to-one clients, group breathwork sessions as well as on the internet.
What are the certification Guidelines?
The 8-month Facilitator Training is a 400-hour course, consisting of live online class time, videos, podcasts, study time with your study-buddy and practice, practice, practice!
How do I get started?
Simple, click here to complete the registration and you will receive an email within 48 hours, inviting you to the FB Group where you can meet others and hear from some of our trainers that will be supporting your journey.
How much Home Study is there?
Most of your study is the application of what you learn. We do recognise that each person needs to study at their own speed. We are not here to push you into anything for which you are not ready, but we also want to honour those who have facilitation experience too. Home study includes breathing, doing the inner work called for in the HERO’S JOURNEY, sharing your experiences and inspiration with your study-buddy, and making an account of your biography. It’s designed to be compelling, and it works! When you think of all the things that add up to a competent and present facilitator, it takes time to absorb them. We know from experience that it takes time to integrate all there is to understand, and our Home Exploration program will take you to the level of competence and confidence you need.
How long is the course?
The course will be completed in 8 months. The course ends with BreathCamp, where upon completion you will receive your certificate!
