YOUR GIFT TO THE WORLD IS NOT IN WHAT YOU DO, BUT IN WHO YOU HAVE BECOME
If you feel called to this work, then you probably are. The Facilitator Training is designed to take you from wherever you may be in your personal journey through a process that will support your development into a fully confident and qualified Facilitator. You will be prepared for any eventuality you meet, and able to hold groups of a hundred people or more. You will also be trained to work with individual clients as you develop the sensitivity to guide and support in a non-codependent way that empowers your Breather.

You can apply your newfound skills in many different arenas, such as Child Development, Corporate HR and Creative Development, Therapy, Emerging Consciousness and Philanthropy. You can incorporate breathwork into your current practice too, 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.
In order to be a competent Facilitator, it means that we must focus on our own inner work too, and the training is designed to work from within. We take the time to work with you and your own healing process in order to strengthen your core, so you can offer authentic presence to your client. This may seem like a long way from where you are today, but working with the Alchemy of Breath family will soon show you talents and help you build confidence you never knew you had!
You will begin practicing within two months of beginning, as our intention is to encourage you to break through into your own genius zone. We will be using video to record our sessions and send them to the group to learn and receive feedback from. Every two weeks we meet for a live online webinar where we exchange ideas, feedback and discuss what our challenges were in order to get advice and guidance.
Many of our students carry the candle for The Alchemy of Breath further, in our year 2 and 3 programs to become Practitioners and Trainers themselves.
By furthering your training in year 2 you have the opportunity to become an internationally recognized Breath Practitioner and mentor facilitators throughout their training. You will learn fundamental elements to move beyond facilitation and into a more developed coaching role as well as learn the basics of Conscious Business.
By year 3 you are able to teach your own Seeds of Alchemy 2-day immersion and Hero’s Journey online courses, and potentially join our paid Trainers. The possibilities are endless.

THERE ARE FOUR LEVELS
Taught online every second week, with support sessions in the alternating weeks
Approaching Alchemy sets the foundation for our journey together. It is a two-week immersion in which we examine ways and structures to co-create healthy relationships. The takeaways from this module alone are life changing, and set the course for all that is to come. You will leave with the tools you need to create healthy relationships with, first and foremost, yourself, Breathers and everyone around you.
The Hero’s Journey is one of the ways Breathers need to prepare themselves in order to support the challenging moments that Breathers are often faced with. Sometimes breathwork can be an ecstatic experience, but other times it requires digging deep into painful places. In order for your Breathers to feel safe enough to explore their depths, they need to be assured that you will be there for them, no matter how deep they need to go. It is only because of your commitment to your own healing that you can offer the quality of presence required. The Hero’s Journey is structured to give you the guidance you need to become the hero of your own life. Once your self-commitment is solid and established, you become a beacon to those on their own journey. Technical knowledge is important, but really it’s your committed presence that makes a Breather feel secure enough to get the most out of their session.
Module 3 focuses on the facilitation skills you will need to handle all the varying situations that arise when you guide an individual or a group through an Alchemy of Breath journey. We will study tools and techniques that have been acquired and refined over several years through experience with thousands of ‘Breathers’. Because we meet for 18 weeks for 2.5 hours each, you will have plenty of time to incorporate your knowledge and practice it – in fact, we like to get you facilitating as soon as possible. Each week marks an incremental and profound growth in your skills.
This is perhaps the most exciting part for me! To have met and served Breathers as they show such deep will and commitment to better themselves, to be rid of trauma and to live in joy is the most rewarding experience in my life. To see you flower into your full strength as a Facilitator is a remarkable thing, and during this residential workshop, you will hold your own sessions with the public. Your co-students and I will also be there to support you. You will be given at least two ‘angels’, or assistants, and the whole event will be managed by you and your team. All the learning you have absorbed comes to the fore, and after each session you will give or receive feedback from your peers, and also from practitioners.
When I walked into my first breathwork with Anthony at the Yogabarn, I thought it would be a lecture on breathing techniques. An hour later, I knew this has just turned my life around. It actually changed my life so much, that I decided to take the year long training with Anthony. The training kept me committed to the journey of self-healing that I had started and has transformed my life in many aspects. I feel like my heart has opened up again for the first time in decades and the training group has become a new little community for all of us. I am truly grateful.
My breathwork experience with Anthony and Alchemy of Breath through festival workshops, Seeds of Alchemy and now the Teacher 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.
IF YOU FEEL CALLED, YOU PROBABLY ARE…
In order to give complete attention to each student, Anthony limits the number of applicants each year. He also likes to speak with you to give you a feel for how he works. Although he will explain more of the course and how it works, he also likes to know that each applicant is suitable for the journey. We are fortunate to say that over 80% of our graduates become Facilitators of Alchemy of Breath, which is over twice the average. This is partly because our format offers a solid pathway to certification with private guidance along the way. We have chosen this more spacious method of teaching because it allows you to integrate all you are learning, ask questions as a result of developing your own practice and share experience with your fellow Facilitators in order to hone your skills to the utmost professional quality. We also attribute our high success rate to the sense of community we create. When you join us at the Alchemy of Breath, you become a member of a family that is here to grow with you and support you too!
