Online Certified Breathwork Coach Training

Hello and Welcome!

Thank you for your interest in our Online Breathwork Training.

My name is Nicholas de Castella. My wife, Susan, and I have built and amazing life through Breathwork and we are keen to support you to create a rich and fulfilling life in service to others. 

For the last 21 years  I have been conducting annual Breathwork Trainings. Breathwork has supported a family of 4 to live and amazing life on our retreat centre in the Dandenong Ranges Rainforest on the outskirts of Melboure.

Our style of Breathwork is Heart Centred which means it is based on gently connecting, trusting and surrendering to the unfolding that happens in the moment.  The process is a simple yet powerful, gentle yet rapid coaching process to help clients release emotional trauma, open their heart and gain the clarity, confidence and enthusiasm to move forward and live life fully.

With Core Clearing Breathwork you can begin to build a business as a coach or work with existing clients to take them deeper: helping clients identify and breakthrough the blockages that are holding them back in their lives. You can facilitate Core Clearing Breathwork in person, on the phone or over the internet with people around the world.

Core Clearing Breathwork Coaching utilises Breathwork, Mindfulness, Somatic,  Emotional and Heart Intelligence. Client quickly and gently identify and clear the subconscious emotional blocks that cause stress, anxiety, frustration and suffering and connect to the inner guidance for motivation and direction in life.

The World Is Your Oyster!

One of the great things about Core Clearing Breathwork is it works just as well over the phone, Skype or Zoom, so you can do sessions from your home to people around the world.

Here is a real life case study – before a session:

“Hi Nicholas, we’re 12 years into our business, and we seem to be stuck with making our business create real freedom for us – we seem a little stuck, like a broken record. For me real freedom means working less, be able to pursue other ideas, etc. I have a hesitancy of doing it all again to come back to the same point. I want to break free and let go of that cycle/thinking.”

1 week on from our session:

“Since last weekend, the jobs are literally flying in the door – the bigger jobs as quotes at this stage, which about 80% will turn into actual jobs. One quote in particular is close to $6,000 worth (profit). We’ve jumped onto the roller coaster, climbing and climbing, and as of the 1st of March we are catapulted into the hands of gravity with regards to our new ventures. It’s all systems go, and we’re not waiting for anyone. What an exciting time!”

"As a Naturopath, the Core Clearing Breathwork is a valuable addition to offer my clients. This is a gentle, effective way for clients to use their breath to access their mind body wisdom and heart intelligence to create shifts in a way that can safely be offered online or via phone. Nicholas is a wealth of knowledge and I am grateful for to benefit from his years of experience."
Annabel Mason, Naturopath and Core Clearing Breathwork Coach

As a Beauty Therapist for many years, I experienced having clients mainly looking to come for a relaxing time. Most of these clients I found were suffering some form of stress, anxiety or even depression. I began to think that I needed to have a further service to help my clientele with their well being. I’ve always been interested in healing & therefore looked into breathwork. I thank the universe for sending me to Nicholas & Susan de Castella. Being introduced & signing up to do the Core Clearing breath work course was the best decision I made for myself personally & for my clientele. I can’t wait to implement my learning on my clients and look forward to where this will take me in my business.  ??
Gordana Marriotte, Beauty Therapist and Core Clearing Breathwork Coach

I can not recommend Australian Breathwork Training highly enough. Amazing programs. They provide amazing training, service and support. Nicholas, Susan and team are so lovely and friendly to work with. Thanks for all you do and being apart of your community. ?
Kate Kendall, Personal Trainer, Well-being  and Core Clearing Breathwork Coach

Being a Breathwork practitioner, I wanted to expand my practice and offer another avenue towards emotional breakthrough. Having touched upon Core Clearing during my Breathwork training, I wanted to fully develop my skill in the process. 
The Core Clearing Breathwork Certificate Training was so thorough for me. I easily understood all the material as Nicholas presents it so logically and seamlessly. The course was done over ZOOM. I had my reservations that it would translate as effective as it does in person, but Nicholas and all the participants were integral to the process and created a beautifully connected group which deepened the understanding. I feel supremely confident going forward and offering this opportunity for my clients to experience their own emotional breakthroughs. Thank you Nicholas….    
Louise Holthouse, Breathwork Practitioner


After doing the Core Clearing Breathwork training and seeing the great results people were getting I decided to move forward to the certificate training as I saw that I could help people get breakthroughs and pay my bills. I thought how cool is that! Since then I find myself in a position to help people move forward in their lives particularly with the impact Covid has had on them. What is even more amazing is that the training not only has changed my life thru the shared practice sessions but with the 'business in a box' that Nicholas has put together I am starting to get up and running. Being on a pension is hard financially but now I can help people and also help myself doing something I love and seeing great results in those I have had the privilege to take thru the core clearing process and seeing their growth and freedom is awesome!
Don't hold back! The certificate training is great. I learnt so much and now I have the tools to help others move forward, find their blockages, and find their own healing! I can't thank Nicholas enough!
Terese Wilby, Entrepreneur and Core Clearing Coach

Hi Nicholas, Wow! Since the weekends training, so many things (amazing things) have been showing up and happening. I have complete 2 Core Clearing sessions with Tatiana my wife and she has had some fantastic shifts and realisations - she wasn’t sure at first, when she explored afterwards she was surprised at what was coming up. I have been continuing to implement breathing 4/4 during the day for myself and specifically when moments of emotional charge present and wow, the ability to re-centre and be present with the feeling is mid blowing, moments where previously I would have reacted in many different

 ways, I have been able to keep calm and poised…. 

Today, I caught up with a lady I know that I hadn’t seen for a little while and I know she was resistant to doing a core clearing session as I’d mentioned and she said she didn’t feel ready so I thought, well even if I could just get her to breathe for a few minutes using the 4/4 just as a little meditation, It will have some sort of benefit (it went beyond what I expected. (her husband died a year ago and she has not taken the time to deal with it). Anyway the story goes:

Today I was Consulting with a lovely lady I personally know named Deb, she shared with me that she had not yet really taken time to deal with the death of her husband who died over 12 months ago. She also shared that she had kept herself busy since then, and hadn’t really stopped to take time out to deal with it, or process it. I offered her a gift, a few minutes of a breathwork meditation to reconnect with herself. She initially seemed to resist in her actions (maybe fear), then she quickly changed and accepted and took a seat. I Proceeded with a few minutes of a breathwork meditation – just a simple and effective process of just focusing on her breath. 
She had some trouble at first keeping a rhythm and wondering if she is doing it right. But we persisted and after a few minutes she come back to being present and many different emotions presented themselves, tears were welling up in her eyes. Whilst discussing her experience, in the back ground we could hear a noise, it was a phone sounding and the phone was Debs mobile, which was positioned next to a picture of her late husband on a table. The phone had an alarm going off, she picked up the phone and said, I don’t use the phone as an alarm or even know how to set an alarm, why would this be going off. She said, its Kev, her late husband. We both had goosebumps and felt the presence of someone there. This was a profound moment. Deb said, I haven’t felt this way since Kev died, more than a year ago (my understanding of that was that she hadn’t felt herself the way she was in that moment – an open heart connection with herself since then). She was in tears and I was in ore at what just played out, just wow…. Deb turned and said to me, you just remind me of Kev, the things you say, the way you are. Thank you!
This was a moment, I will never forget and a deep knowing in my heart that this work is transforming to say the least. I have written this down and will keep forever. She has since texted to say thank you and say that I am a beautiful Soul. She has also mentioned that she wants to do some core clearing sessions now. So thank you for sharing this profound work, I am so inspired. I really never knew that it was going to have this sort of impact on people.
With Love and Gratitude, Peter Norton

35 years ago, on the outside Nicholas looked like a success. He was representing Australia in World Championships, on scholarship at the Australian Institute of Sport, working as an Architect, married with a house, dog and a cat.

But on the inside he felt empty and anxious. A tragic head on car accident lead to chronic fatigue.

After the crash he hit rock bottom and DECIDED something had to change.

He attended his first personal growth workshop where he realised that success is an inside-out game: He was the one that had been making his own life hard. Even better he learnt how to achieve success with ease, heal his body, run faster on less training and create a life he loves. 

He was so inspired by what he discovered that he switched from working as an Architect to Breakthrough Coach.
