"The Core Clearing Breathwork Certification immediately added
a whole new income stream to help my clients breakthrough their emotional barriers. They tell me they feel clearer, more energetic and more motivated to do their best.

This has increased my client retention rate (many of my clients
have trained with me more than 5yrs, some over 10yrs), therefore
increasing my customer lifetime value."

Holistic Health THERAPIST

I was amazed at how Core Clearing Breathwork proved more effective than meditation in addressing and resolving trauma and patterned trauma responses. The training experience was highlighted by the facilitator, Nicholas de Castella’s extensive knowledge and expertise with Breathwork. After completing the Breathwork Facilitator Training, I integrated breathwork into my holistic therapy practice, primarily working with individuals facing chronic illnesses.
