For students who have completed level 2 and up.

This module will further develop the assessment and tracking skills of facilitators with an experiential approach to the psychophysiology of disordered breath patterns.  Students will learn how to support clients as they reestablish functional breathing mechanics as part of their integrative maintenance between private Nūma Breathwork Sessions.

After this training, you will be able to:

  • explain and model an open healthy breath to clients and explain how this is achieved in the context of somatic breath therapies

  • recognize disordered breathing behaviors that occur before, during or after a Nūma Breathwork session

  • identify the possible role and effect that breathing behavior has on the client's mechanics, physiology and psychophysiology within the context of the current session

  • lead the client through simple self-assessment tools to identify disordered breathing or mechanical restriction

  • explain, mirror and explore the existing behavior with the client

  • explain, mirror and explore functional breathing mechanics and behavior to the client

  • construct a specific home learning plan to support integration of the private session with measurable goals identified by the client

  • lead a 90 min group class for basic functional breath retraining.

The total hours of training (50 hours) include the five (5) day in-person training (40 hours) and 10 hours of home studies.
