Who is breathwork teacher training for?

If you work in sports, traditional or alternative healthcare, as a yoga or Pilates teacher, soccer coach, physiotherapist, fitness coach, medical doctor, occupational therapist, osteopath, speech therapist, psychotherapist, martial arts teacher, performing arts teacher, hypnotherapist, Alexander Technique teacher, caregiver, performance coach, or in any profession that involves unlocking potential — breathwork certification is for you.

No prior experience of breathwork is necessary. The OA™ breathwork training will give you a deep practical and theoretical understanding, and the tools to apply simple exercises in ways that are directly relevant to your clients and students.
