What is an Apprenticeship

The Breathing Space Apprenticeship is a totally unique way of becoming a Breathwork Facilitator. Most facilitator training programs are done in group training which starts and ends at a particular time. That's been the dominant model of education for the last 200 years, but it is not the only model. Historically in the Wisdom Traditions such as Yoga and Buddhism it was very different. A student would go and sit at the foot of the guru and soak up all of wisdom. Once the guru deemed that the student was ready, they could go out and teach.


Although I we do not see ourselves as gurus within Breathing Space, we do set up trainees to be ready to meet the world with all they have learnt.  The benefits of the apprenticeship means that this can be done at times that suit the trainee and also we can really focus on exploring any individual intentions and goals and how you can bring your unique gifts and experiences to the world of breathwork to really stand out within this growing field (I do try to do this within the group training too - but can offer more support for this 1to1).

We like to think that the Breathing Space Apprenticeship takes the best of both worlds- the rigor and discipline of a group training and the intimate connection with a one-to-one teacher- and combines them together to form a learning environment that is tailored to the individual and each student has a unique experience. 

Why Consider an Apprenticeship?

  • Flexibility

    This course was designed for those who might need a bit more flexibility in their schedules due to work or family commitments. Or, those who might have learning needs beyond the traditional educational model. As you set your schedule and the pace of the course, you are in charge!


  • Personalization

    The Breathing Space Apprenticeship is one-on-one with your teacher so the course content will be tailored to you and your learning needs. Want to go more in depth on a certain topic? Need longer to complete an assignment? No problem! In conjunction with your teacher, you set the parameteres. if you really want that personal one-on-one connection with a teacher to help you learn in a way that is best for you, then this is the pathway for you.


  • Accelerated Learning

    Maybe you are already a wellness professional with a strong background in adjunct therapies or you are ready to complete your training in an accelerated way. The apprenticeship offers the flexibility to shorten or extend the time taken to complete the course.

What you will learn -

  • UNIT 1 - Breathwork Essentials - This unit provides trainees with all of the skills and resources that they need to create and safely run a breathwork session. Content is delivered through our online learning platform and in live seminars.

  • UNIT 2 - Bodies of Breathwork - This unit looks at different levels of the Breathwork journey and how it affects us. We start empirically with the physical body and the Anatomy & Physiology of the Breath. We then move to the emotional body where we look at trauma and our role as breathworkers. Finally we explore the subtle body and how breathwork integrates creativity and spirituality.

  • UNIT 3 - Advanced Facilitation Skills - In this unit, we will cover advanced facilitation skills including voice, touch, and transmission. We will also learn how to support ourselves financially and to build a business out of breathwork.

  • UNIT 4 - Coursework (Book report & Graduation project) - Trainees must choose, read and then submit three reports on books from an extensive reading list. Trainees must also complete a ‘graduation project’ (which could be a website, app, podcast, dissertation, series of artwork, etc.) - which will ideally help further the trainees’ own development.

  • UNIT 5 - ​Case Studies - The only real way to become a breathwork facilitator is to facilitate Breathworks. It is, therefore, a graduation requirement for trainees to receive 5 one-on-one breathworks, lead 5 one-on-one breathworks and facilitate 5 group breathworks. Self-evaluation and participant feedback must be completed for these.


  • UNIT 6 - Personal Journey - If we are to hold others deep in process, we have to be prepared to go on a continuing journey of self-exploration and healing of our own. Unit 6 is not directly assessed, but it is expected for trainees to have a regular practice and go on their own personal journey.

Some final important bits of information -

  • The 6-month 1to1 apprenticeship costs £5000 which can be paid in instalments. 

  • Enrolment for this option can happen at any time and times of meetups are flexible.

  • I only take on a maximum of 12 students on apprenticeships to make sure that I can be fully committed to supporting your journey.

“The apprenticeship pathway has been the absolute coolest thing I have ever done. It’s had the most profound impact on me as a person which has bled in to all my other relationships. ”

“One of the biggest things is the mentorship that I have with another man who is genuine, authentic, and real to talk to, to collaborate with, to discuss things with. It’s something that I think a lot of people really lack in their lives and something this program really does.”
