Breathwork Instructor Training

22 Sep, 2022 (14:00 pm), 26 Sep, 2022 (11:00 am)

Reconnecting people to the power of their breath is one of the most rewarding experiences you’ll ever have.

In today’s modern world, our minds and bodies can easily become riddled with anxiety, illness, lack of sleep, too much screen time and so on. When we are out of balance within or without, our entire physiology reacts and this impacts our physical, emotional and mental state.

Yet we all hold the magic key to changing this – our breath.

By restoring the natural flow of breathing, the body’s ability to balance and our acute sense of being in the world, we gain more awareness, make better choices and live in a more harmonious state.

Becoming a Breathless instructor means you’ll be helping others to transform their own health and happiness and connect to nature, each other and themselves.

You’ll also become part of a tribe of other likeminded individuals looking to help others through the power of breath.

We offer the most thorough and complete training available and you’ll graduate fully qualified to teach breathwork classes, workshops and retreats with complete confidence and competence.



This initial phase of the training is a masterclass on breathwork. Over 20 hours, you’ll delve into the science, data, theory and personal practice needed to set you up for the next stage. This is essential training for anyone wishing to become a skilled expert in breathwork and mastering their breath. These tools, techniques and revolutionary methods are introduced in a clear, easy to understand way via our online learning platform. This masterclass is a complete A to Z guide that will prepare you for Phase 2 out in the mountains.



The second phase is an all-inclusive 5-day immersive training retreat where you’ll learn and experience the transformative power of breathing for yourself. During this time in the beautiful mountains, out in nature, you’ll become more acquainted with your own breathing blueprint.

Through the techniques, methods and tools you’ll be taught, you will get to explore and practice a wide range of powerful breathing techniques, experience breakthroughs for yourself, and take on the role of a breathwork coach as well as meeting and bonding with your new tribe for life.

Our philosophy rests on the idea that you can only guide people as far and as deep as you have explored yourself, which is why we take you on a journey of discovery with your own breath, followed by creating your own instructor style. From cold water immersion in frozen lakes, pre dinner sauna sessions and discussions round the fireplace to altitude training and even a breathhold session underwater, prepare to be blown away by the power of your breath amidst likeminded people in the most stunning of settings.



The final phase includes a 28 day follow up program. The purpose of this program is to offer you the full support, guidance, and mentoring you’ll need to take your breathwork teaching skills and abilities out into the world. You’ll meet together with your tribe once a week for 4 weeks to enhance your skills, share your experiences and discuss whatever has come up for you. This will include group mentoring, a tailor made breathwork program and 1:1 coaching sessions with a Master Instructors to ensure you stay on the right path to success.


Our Mission


At Breathless, we are on a mission to help as many people as possible breath better.

In order to do this, we have created our very own Breathwork Academy. By training highly motivated, forward thinking individuals to become exceptional breathwork instructors, we can share the Breathless experience with the greater good in a way that is powerful, progressive and personal.

We also donate 10% of all our profits towards the conservation of the Great Barrier Reef and the Amazon Rainforest. This means that you’re helping support two of nature’s greatest oxygen providers and protecting these wonders for future generations as well as equipping yourself to do transformational work in others’ lives.

Getting a clear understanding of your goals and helping you map out your vision and direction moving forward are a big part of the training. The course is designed so that you can begin teaching, running workshops and producing content as soon as you qualify. Certification will be granted upon completion of the training, including support with setting up insurance, liability and indemnity. However, as part of the training, you will already be working with friends and family and the public at large as soon as you are ready. Johannes: For everyone who trains as a Breathless instructor, your success is mine, and I will do my best to work with you to get you setup and teaching within your first few months of qualifying. This will include framing your unique position in the market, step-by-step processes on perfecting your offerings and helping assisting myself and other instructors in live workshops to build your confidence.
Finding the right training for you is far more than a list of what you’ll get. Is this a movement you want to be part of? Do you like the culture? Do the values resonate with you? Are these the sort of people you want to hang out with and learn with and from? Do you want to work alongside and be affiliated with this group or do you just want a fancy title? If something doesn’t feel right, then it probably isn't. But if the message, mission and values speak to you, then you will move mountains to become part of that tribe. As part of the Breathless family, you will be a student of life, for life. Surrounding yourself with a tribe of likeminded individuals committed to growth and bringing this method to the world is as empowering as it is worthwhile. This is not just another personal development seminar or self-help course that promises the goods just as soon as you buy ‘the next course’. Our training is of the highest standard, with the promise not only will this be the last breathwork course you’ll ever need to take but also that you will be part of a movement and a tribe who share your goals, aspirations and determination to help people learn to help themselves. Johannes: I obtained 10 breathwork certificates before starting Breathless. Travelling the world on a shoestring, always looking to get myself in the right room, at the right time, asking the right question, I learned more about the art and science of breathing and myself then I imagined was possible but what I really took away was the importance of culture and community. The idea that certain methods or individuals are holding onto the key, the secret or the undivulged wisdom is outdated. We’re all looking at the same research papers, distilling the same principles into practices and drawing from the greats that have come before us. What matters most is the people, the community and the connections. At Breathless, we offer all that and world class training.
A Breathwork instructor is committed to sharing and developing the world of breathing exercises. Past students guide breathwork sessions for groups in the form of workshops, teaching in the workplace and schools, coaching sports teams and yoga practitioners and working with the general public. Other instructors incorporate breathing practices into their existing work as coaches, naturopaths, health practitioners and counsellors. For some, becoming an instructor simply means a lifelong commitment to breathing the best they can. For others, it’s about helping their families and loved ones make the most of every breath.
The 3 month instructor training program is broken down into three phases. Upon signing up, you will create your profile and gain access to our training platform. There you’ll find study materials, including the instructor manual, our extensive resource library, guided breathing practices and so much more. Phase 1 consists of 12 hours of pre-recorded lectures. These are to be viewed in your own time during the course. Phase 2 brings us together for a 5 day immersion in person training. This unique retreat brings together the practice and theory through intensive workshops, stimulating discussions and adventures in nature as you connect further with yourself and your new tribe. Phase 3 is where you apply everything you’ve learned through our 28 day Boundless Breathwork program. You’ll receive daily recorded breathing sessions, keep a breathwork journal and join the weekly calls or view recordings if you can’t make a session. You’ll also have a mentoring session to start mapping out your pathway as a breathwork instructor.
Sign up to one of the upcoming Instructor Trainings through the booking platform. Create your profile on the academy.breathless.com.au learning portal and you’re all set.
In commitment to our long term vision, we’ve built the most comprehensive learning platform in the breathwork movement to date. Inside our rapidly growing resource library, there are lectures, guided breathwork sessions and online seminars to which you will have unlimited access as a Breathless Instructor. However, we are not here to push you into anything for which you are not ready for. The 12 hours of self study materials, which are prerequisite to the certification, have been adapted to suit all learning styles. Complex lectures have also been recorded in conversational podcasts to suit those with limited time and busy lifestyles. The learning platform is designed to be highly practical and compelling so as to aid in your own transformation, build your confidence and enhance your competence to become the best instructor you can be.
We want this training to be accessible to anyone who feels drawn to this work which is why we offer our instructor training. The growth of our community, the chance to help people transform their lives and opportunity to inspire excellence in this industry is way above any financial gain. Whilst we provide the highest possible standard of training to all levels of facilitators, we are not interested in running an elite club. We’re in this for the long run. Some instructors will go on to run a wildly successful breathwork businesses, others will simply reap the rewards of being part of a positive movement that supports all areas of life. We believe is that any professional not teaching breath right now is missing out on having impact, purpose and profit. Those purporting to be breathwork instructors with little or no training are causing damage to the viability of this work. What we need is a higher standard and those willing to invest in themselves will lead the way. We will provide intricate guidelines on pricing and establishing the value of your work as well as business coaching, marketing advice and more. Put simply, you can expect to earn your investment back within the first 2 months of teaching. Johannes: I built a 6 figure business from scratch in my first year of teaching. I then invested every single dollar straight back into my learning and development as a breathing instructor, and to this day, I still do. I am committed to your success as much as you are. For me, money has never been the driving factor behind my teaching. It became simply a by-product of building the lifestyle, tribe and purpose of my dreams. 10% of all our profits are donated towards the conservation of the Great Barrier Reef and the Amazon Rainforest. This means that you’re helping support two of nature’s greatest oxygen providers and protecting these wonders for future generations as well as equipping yourself to do transformational work in others’ lives.
The field of breathwork is one of the most rapidly expanding lifestyle practices today. With the mindfulness, yoga and meditation movements already established, breath is the new movement and it is here to stay. More and more people are waking up to the idea that conscious breathing is one of the most powerful remedies to our modern human condition. We are at a unique point in time where science has finally caught up with spirituality. This is an opportunity for breathwork instructors to connect the fields of ancient wisdom with modern applications and help people optimise every breath they take, take responsibility for their own personal healing, expand their consciousness and become more grounded, centred human beings.



This initial phase of the training is a full-scale masterclass on breathwork. It’s jam-packed with science-backed data, theory, and personal practice. This phase is perfect for anyone who’s serious about becoming a skilled expert in breathwork and mastering their breath.
All of the most important tools, techniques and revolutionary methods will be introduced in a very clear, and easy to understand way inside our custom built learning platform. This masterclass is a complete A to Z guide that’ll prepare you for phase 2 which includes hands-on immersive training.


The second phase is an all-inclusive 5-day training retreat. In this immersive training, you’ll get to learn and experience the transformative power of breathing for yourself. Over the course of this training among the beautiful mountains, you’ll get more acquainted with your own breathing blueprint.
You’ll also get to intimately explore a wide range of powerful breathing techniques, become grounded in your own practice, experience breakthroughs for yourself, and take on the role of a breathwork coach.

All techniques, methods, tools and more will be shown to you. We will explore the wide spectrum of possibilities for healing, growth and expansion Breathwork has to offer in a setting where you can flourish.

Our philosophy rests on the idea that you can only guide people as far and as deep as you have explored yourself, which is why we take you on a journey of discovery with your own breath, followed by creating your own instructor style.

From cold-water immersions in wild nature, sauna sessions before dinner and discussions by the fireplace to altitude training and even a breath-hold session underwater, prepare to be blown away by the power under your nose and have ample time to take it all in among the luxurious settings with your new tribe.


The final phase includes a 28-day follow up program. The purpose of this program is to offer you the full support, guidance, and personalised mentoring you’ll need to solidify your breathwork teaching skills and abilities in the real world.

You’ll meet together with your tribe of breath coaches once per week, for 4 weeks, to further enhance your skills and share your personal experiences. This will include group mentoring, a custom made breathwork program and 1-on-1 coaching sessions with the master instructors to ensure you stay on the right path to success.


Johannes Egberts

Johannes has led an inspiring life of tremendous self-discovery, enlightenment, and diversity, even being featured in GQ Magazine and ABC news. Although coming from a rocky upbringing, he never failed to look for the silver lining while staying busy with creative endeavors.


Having previously served as a Head Chef, Sculptor, and Freediving Instructor, he always looked for positive outlets to channel all his energy but seemingly hit a dead-end. By a shocking twist of fate, he was introduced to something unexpected that would alter the direction of his life forever – controlled breathing. This relatively untapped field immediately resonated with Johannes, and he has since relentlessly cultivated knowledge on the subject from brilliant minds such as Wim Hof, Laird Hamilton, and many others.

After adequately equipping himself with the tools and experience needed, he decided to start his own holistic wellness brand known as, Breathless. With all the noise in today’s society, people are more disconnected than ever from themselves and each other. Through the ancient teachings of controlled breathing, Johannes looks to shed light on a lost art that is both beneficial mentally and physically, even spiritually. With world-renowned clientele such as David Goggins, Ludovico Einaudi, A-League Sports Teams, and some of Australia’s largest companies taking notice of this practice, the future is brighter than ever for Johannes and Breathless.

As someone who was saved by the simple act of changing his breathing, Johannes has made it his life mission to be a beacon of guidance for those who want to do the same. Throughout this spiritual journey, he has tinkered with countless methodologies and theories, which has enabled him to deliver only the relevant information that will spark real change.


The immense exposure breathwork has gotten in recent years has allowed him to speak in front of audiences in excess of 10.000 people, with the aim of inspiring them so we can all learn to inhabit the space between each breath.
