Professional Breath Coaching Certificate Program
Professional Breath Coaching Certificate Program is aN ICF accredited training.
Terms of Participation
It is possible to participate in the Professional Breath Coaching Certificate Program only after completing sections I-II-III of Basic Breath Training.
Training and Certification Process
Professional Breath Coaching Certification Program consists of 3 parts, 5 days each. All parts consist of theoretical and practical parts. Program consists of 3 parts, 5 days each including two written, two practical exams, 40 reported breath coaching sessions, participation in the basic breath training for 5 days three times, reading assignments and essays.
First part; We learn about the ABC of natural breath, breathing chemistry, respiratory system, activating and integrating the breath, breath analysis and body mapping. There is a practice exam on the very last day.
Second part; We learn about what coaching is, coaching tools, strong questions, coaching skills, coaching tools. There is a written and practical exam on the very last day.
Third part; We learn about behavioral science, psychology of breath, physiology of breath, respiratory chemistry and breath coaching tools used on breathing science. (Such as educational capnography, EMG, HRV, oximeter)
What Will You Experience and Gain?
After finishing the Professional Breath Coaching Certificate Program, you will be able to work as a breath coach using your coaching skills and breathing science tools in your private breath sessions.

More about dysfunctional breathing habits…
If a person has a dysfunctional breathing habit that is, a learned behaviour since childhood and a controlled breathing system, there will be problems that can be analyzed on the mechanical level, as well as on the respiratory level. Dysfunctional breathing habits create a situation called "hypocapnia". Because of controlled breathing, CO2 pressure in the lungs/ PetCO2 drops, and our chemistry becomes acidic, hemoglobin level and oxygen ratio drops, even if it does not fall, oxygen distribution becomes impossible. Energy falls, chronic fatigue, aches etc. occur. And many more… (please check the problems triggered by hypocapnia.)
Breathworker all around the world sadly work only on the mechanical level whether its pranayama, kriya breaths, breathing therapy, transformal breathing, holistic or holotropic breathwork, the effects of breathing on our blood, on our chemistry, biology is not measured, which is a big mistake. Breathworkers usually apply a specific technique without checking the effects of dysfunctional breathing habits on our blood, physiology, biology or chemistry.
Dysfunctional Breathing Habits (hypocapnia) cannot be analyzed by working only on the mechanic level. Fast shallow or slow deep breathing, reverse breathing or diaphragmatic breathing may or may not be the reason behind hypocapnia, we cannot know this without checking the CO2 and O2 levels. One person gets hypocapnic because of fast breathing, the other one because of slow breathing.
THERE IS NO RIGHT WAY TO BREATHE. BREATH HAPPENS BY ITSELF.
AND ALL THE ‘’METHODS’’ AND ‘’TECHNIQUES’’ LEAD TO DYSFUNCTIONAL BREATHING HABITS WHEN USED FOR A CERTAIN PERIOD OF TIME.
If we want an open, natural breath we have to analyze the breathing habits as well as life habits and check our whole respiratory system.
