The Advanced Instructor Training is our most comprehensive certification. It gives you the skills to teach functional breathing and simulation of altitude training to clients with a wide range of needs and goals. Our Advanced Instructors work with everyone from pro athletes and military to adults and children with chronic illness.
This workshop is an opportunity to:
• Meet Patrick at his home in Connemara, in the west of Ireland
• Learn in a supportive group setting,
• Spend three days with Patrick and your fellow students, gaining a wealth of knowledge from Patrick’s own clinical experience,
• And be among the first to take advantage of the facilities at our new state-of-the art breathing center!
What’s Special About the Breathing Center?
The Oxygen Advantage® Breathing Center is the first of its kind in Europe. Designed and built in 2022 specifically to cater for OA training, it is kitted out with all the space and equipment you need to take a deep dive into the science and practice of breathing. Facilities include treadmills, an ice bath, a sauna, and workshop spaces for theoretical and practical learning. We have all the breathing accessories to hand, so you can experience SportsMask, the Buteyko Belt, pulse oximetry and more. And if that’s not enough, we have stunning views over Connemara and Galway Bay. So you know every single breath you take will be vibrant with fresh sea air!
This is an immersive experience. A deep dive with Patrick, in a modern venue, specially designed to welcome you to the Oxygen Advantage Instructor community.
After the three-day in-person training, you will have time to work through the course materials before you take your exam. You will then be required to complete three case studies. You will have lifetime access to our online training portal. This includes an invite to all future Zoom classes, for free.
Your course fee includes:
• Physical and virtual copies of the instructor training manual
• A virtual copy of the athletes’ manual
• A copy The Breathing Cure by Patrick McKeown. This is a comprehensive book with 500+ pages, so leave space in your luggage for a bit of extra weight…
• Pre-recorded video lessons explaining the theory and application of the OA method
• Marketing designs, images, and logos, to use on your own website and marketing
• Editable PowerPoint presentations to use in your own training sessions and workshops
