Breathwork Love

“The Breath Liberation Society Breathwork Facilitator training course is one of a kind. What a gift to learn this magic from so many perspectives, each one as valid as the next. Trauma-informed presence is so vital to supporting folx on their healing journeys. Anti-racism and inclusivity are imperative for healing facilitation to be authentic and whole. Participating in this program filled me with gratitude. Thank you Chauna and the Apiary!" — SS

"Breath Liberation Society has a unique approach, with a real, hands on, "walk the talk" method when it comes down to diversity & inclusion. The program is structured around a myriad of facilitators rather than around just one "guru". The result is a teaching that is at core aligned with the deep collective values that it is teaching. That changes everything! And behind that master plan, people who are truly dedicated to provide a coherent, cohesive, complete training. 5 Stars." — CM

The Facilitator training is for:

✦  People who are passionate about breathwork, and excited to share it with their friends and community. 

✦  Self starters who are motivated to learn on their own, and thrilled to be joining a community of like minded folx.

✦  People who are well versed in healthy coping mechanisms as we will explore some serious topics that will likely stir up emotions. (Be prepared to self -soothe and/or reach for outside support if necessary.)

✦  People who have access to a strong internet connection and the tech resources to participate fully in the online live classes and practice sessions.

✦  Queer folx, black folx, trans folx, differently-abled folx, people of color and anyone who is committed to being in community and of service to ALL people.

The Facilitator training is NOT for:

✦  If you will be missing more than 6 hours of live content or one module of the live teaching sessions.

✦  Anyone who wants to ignore critical thinking, follow a script during healing sessions, and be led guru style.

✦  Anyone who is looking for one-on-one mentorship as they become a facilitator. In this course, we learn and grow together as a group. One on One support will not be available. 

✦  Those who are expecting location-specific or legal business advice (taxes, business filings, marketing). While we will address standard business practices for Breathwork, we will not be covering how to individually structure or promote your services. 

✦  Anyone who believes that healing spaces should be exclusive and limited to only a chosen few.

“This course was so groundbreaking for me! I’m still engulfed in the information shared and relationships formed. I am so grateful and thankful! If you are interested in becoming a Breathwork Facilitator than this is where you need to be.” - SG

Are you GPBA accredited? 

Short answer? Not yet 😉

In 2023 we increased the Breathwork facilitator training total hour count from 200 to 400 hours. 

The new hour count is one of two necessary steps that we are taking in order to be accredited through the Global Professional Breathwork Alliance (GPBA). We hope to be fully accredited by late 2024.  

Breath Liberation Society will be the first and only GPBA-accredited program that is owned and operated by a black woman.

This training includes two one-year programs, after completion of the first year facilitators in training will be able to confidently lead private and group sessions. The second advanced year of study will be spent fulfilling the practice teaching and supervision hours necessary to complete the GPBA requirements.

Breathwork Love

“Breathwork has enabled me to reach deeper inside than I have been able to through meditation. I can always tell how I am really feeling and work through those challenges or pleasures. Chauna is a true healer and holds space for others in a way that promotes growth, healing, introspection, or whatever your soul is calling for at the time. After the first time I did breathwork with Chauna I knew I would continue with the practice.”  — MP

"It gave me a sense of purpose during a time I was not feeling like myself. Having 8 days to connect with myself, using that commitment to gain clarity and closeness to myself was imperative to the next steps in my life. I can breathe a lot of my worry down/ away. Simply focusing on breath instead of the list of things going on these days, and personally has been very transformative." -NM
