- Breath coaching is not a doctrine.
- Breath coaching is not a therapy.
- Breath coaching cannot be performed by learning from a book.
WHAT IS BREATH COACHING?
Breath Coaching is a system that analyzes breathing as a form of a behavior. Breath Coaches analyze the breath, find out the dysfunctional breathing habit and coach the clients in learning new habits.
Most of us learn dysfunctional breathing habits in our childhood as a form of self-developed behavior.
Breath coaching sessions are studies where the breath is analyzed while our clients breath deeply from their mouths. Taking deep breaths is not only necessary but also very much needed fort he breath coaches to see what’s going on wrong with the breath. After analyzing the breath, the breath coach coaches the client using different, necessary systems such as body mapping, reverse breathing or over-breathing.
Breath coaching sessions must be live, face-to-face sessions. During breath coaching sessions, the breath coach actively works on the body with his / her hands while analyzing the breath mechanically, using affirmations throughout the session.
The breath coach analyses the breath by using a special (educational) capnography, EMG and HRV system and starts working with the breath mechanically afterwards. Breath coaching session lasts at least 1,5 hours. While lying on a mattress and the eyes are closed, the session continues with the accompaniment of music and the coach.
Breath Coaching is an CCE accredited coaching system. The dysfunctional breathing habits are identified through chemical, cellular, biological, physiological and mechanic analysis systems. Breath analysis has to be done during breathing from the mouth mechanically and using an educational capnography, EMG, HRV system on a deeper level.
The breath coach works with the physical, emotional and psychological level, so the breath coach should have the knowledge and equipment necessary for these studies.
