Breathwork Practitioner Training

(Certificate III & IV level in Breathwork*)

Dear Life Enthusiast,

Are you a caring, empathetic person who likes to help other people?

Are you dedicated to your own personal and spiritual growth?

Would you like a fun and meaningful way to generate a great income?

Do you feel fulfilled when sharing and connecting heart to heart with others?

Would like to live from your heart and inspire the greatness in others?

If you answered YES to the questions above, and you would like to live your passion, inspire others, make a difference in the world and make great money while doing it, then I’m here to tell you it’s absolutely possible.

There has never been a better time to turn your passion into profit and create the lifestyle of your dreams!

Today, I live a truly blessed life: I’m the husband to a beautifulwife, father of two great kids, living in 7 acres of 

beautiful rainforest, doing what I love while helping to make the world a better place. 

There comes a time when you feel the undying urge to contribute to the well-being of others. So, if you are here because you would like to share your gifts, you are in the right place.

Since I began working full time in Breathwork in 1991, ‘spirit’ has continually lifted and guided me forward. I have now been working for over twenty years full-time as a Breathwork Practitioner and have travelled the globe three times paying my way ‘doing sessions’. I have always found that people turn up looking for a session at the right time and I have never been short of clients. As they say, “when the student is ready the teacher appears.”

And now, after 20 years of research and development and much deep reflection, we are very excited to birth a new level of evolution in personal development trainings: Breathwork Training.

Our Promise:

“You’ll become a great Breathwork Practitioner, learn about yourself and those around you, improve your relationships, and grow faster personally than you’d ever thought possible.”

Breathwork Training: The Career of Tomorrow

The Breathwork Training is ideal for those who aspire to help others and earn 5- and 6-figure incomes from the comfort of their home and on their own terms

In fact, breathwork training is the QUICKEST and BEST way to:

  • Leverage your expertise and increase your cash flow from the comfort of your home
  • Expand your reach and help more people lead happier, healthier lifestyles
  • Deepen your self-growth and move along faster on your road to a better you.
  • Build your business around your life…and NOT build your life around your business!

Never has there been a better time to become a certified breathwork practitioner and set those around you free to live authentically and passionately. This training is dedicated to ensuring your professional and personal success in every way possible.

What Is Breathwork?

Breathwork is a form of personal transformation that utilizes conscious, connected breathing in an intentional way. Breathwork has the capacity to affect not only the physical aspects of our bodies but also the emotional, mental and spiritual bodies as well.

Through the power of breath, old traumas, limiting beliefs and suppressed emotions begin to release. This enables us to not only let go of what we have been holding on to but also transform and integrate the habitual and behavioral manifestations of these suppressions as well. Over time, as we learn to accept an open, healthy breath into our bodies we find we are able to live our lives more fully, enter into a state of peace and inner balance as well as feel a closer connection to our purpose and inner power.

You Will Be Trained To Transform People’s Lives In These Ways:

  • Increased energy
  • Decreased stress
  • A freeness of expression
  • A greater sense of inner connectedness
  • Feeling of confidence and personal empowerment.
  • Understanding & changing key decisions from the past
  • Clearing emotional blockages
  • Open the heart and living authentically
  • Calming the mind to find peace, happiness, and freedom
  • Resolving the feelings underlying the issues that cause problems in their lives
  • Breakthrough procrastination, frustration, anxiety and stress
  • Create deeper relationships
  • Increase health and wellbeing
  • Find inner peace
  • Harness the inner power to achieve goals with greater ease and flow.

Our Aim?

To use Breathwork to help people to find peace and happiness and freedom by resolving the FEELINGS underlying the issues that cause problems in their lives: help them breakthrough procrastination, frustration, anxiety and stress, deepen relationships, increase health and wellbeing, find inner peace, happiness and achieve their goals with greater ease and flow.

We believe that through breathwork, people will be inspired to remember and reconnect with their own inner healer. Breathwork is one of the most profound & effective healing arts. It helps to activate the subconscious mind and bring awareness and insights not easily accessed through traditional therapy.

Hear from our students:

“Thank you Nicholas for nurturing me through this course and assisting me to release the shackles of the past, which I had allowed to inhibit my personal growth. Learning to set myself free and make conscious choices about myself is liberating experience I feel so grateful to have had. Breathwork is not just a course – it is a way of life!” – Ros Stewart.

“Six months ago I thought my life was falling apart. Then a friend suggested I try Breathwork. Thanks to this gentle and powerful healing process my life has never been better. I now let go of the past, enjoy the present and look forward to the future. I will always be grateful to you Nicholas and Susan.” – James Davis

And if that’s not enough to convince you…

Medical doctors agree:

“I have known and worked with Nicholas and Susan de Castella for over 10 years. Over 200 of my patients during this time have reported more energy; lessening of physical pain; increased understanding of their life situation; a range of skills that can be used in all sorts of situations to alleviate symptoms of anxiety and depression; improved mood; improved coping skills with life stressors; more passion in their lives, and hence, improved relationships; finding a network of genuine friends from whom they feel support.

Some of my patients attending Seminars have been particularly ill, either physically or mentally, and these patients, too, have been able to make great gains during a short time. I conclude by thoroughly recommending the range of Seminars facilitated by Nicholas & Susan de Castella. These are high quality events with the potential for changing people’s lives forever.”

 Dr Andrew Horwood G.P.

“As medical doctors you would want to benefit from their transforming work for yourself and of course your patients. I have found Nicholas and Susan to be heartfelt beings who practice what they preach and in doing so have that special quality of authentic and infectious teaching by example. Both are well experienced healing processes, which as a holistic practitioner for more than 25yrs. I know it as essential for my patients to access in order to regain wellness. Whether facilitated in individual sessions or in groups, patients will get help for the emotional and mental dimensions of their symptoms, which most GPs have no time to delve into; whether it is depression, chronic fatigue, asthma, degenerative illness of all kinds. Your patients will be thankful for Nicholas and Susan’s help.”

 Dr Margaret Ngu G.P.

“I have attended Passionately Alive, Manhood and Relationship. I have found them helpful and inspiring. I recommend my patients to attend. In fact I believe emotional and heart centred work is essential for personal growth and healing. I recommend these workshops to anyone with chronic disease, relationship problems, emotional crisis and those wanting to avoid these.”

Dr Peter Johnston G.P.

Become a Breathwork Practitioner:

Certified Breathwork Trainers help people harness their inner power and achieve even their wildest dreams like never before. They motivate, energize and inspire! No other program comes close to delivering the all-around amazing experience of breathwork training.

Breathwork training offers you an excellent opportunity to gain qualifications to establish a rich and rewarding career in Emotional Healing and Personal Empowerment – an area of healing that is rapidly gaining interest and recognition.

This may be the opportunity you have been looking for to gain greater skills in assisting others on the journey of heart opening and personal empowerment. My experience as a healer has been that this is a remarkably powerful healing modality that enables people to grow and make changes quickly and easily. I continue to experience feelings of deep satisfaction and joy in seeing the effects of this process on others.

Now, I couldn’t be more excited for this amazing opportunity to share the knowledge and skills I have developed after helping a growing community of healers create the career of their dreams and deepen their personal growth.

Your personal development:

Even if you don’t want to become a Breathwork Practitioner as a career, there are many people who attend the training purely for the sake of personal development and have had astounding results.

I believe that therapists can’t guide anyone further into heart opening than they have journeyed themselves. Furthermore, it is the quality of a healers’ presence or energy more than any knowledge that they may have that determines their healing potential. Thus a major focus of the training will be on the personal growth of each trainee.

The training will be conducted with a strong and loving group of people who are committed to both their own growth and to supporting that of others. The training offers an intense transformational process over a ten month period. It is the perfect opportunity for participants to enrich the quality of their lives, experience major shifts forward in their personal level of awareness, effectiveness and love.

“The best part was… achieving a steadily increasing bank balance and a system that enables this to continue.

Everyone needs to do this important work.” – Rod Schofield

“The best part was illuminating areas of my life that I was able to create what I wanted and areas that I was stuck. It provided a space to evaluate where I was and where I wanted to be with a path to get there. The biggest thing I got out of it is how my money attitude is playing out in my life and allowing myself to receive more cash flow when I needed it. It involved being more proactive and asking for what I wanted.” – Anne Hubbard

“I feel more connected to myself and others. Manhood helped me define what a man’s role in life is. What has changed for me is my marriage, relationships, I am a better father, a better friend my life is a lot happier and freer, after releasing a lot of built up sadness and anger.” Andrew Moore

“By participating in Manhood, I was given the skills to grow a greater understanding of myself and areas in my life that have been holding back my development and growth. It has given me the ability to move forward in my relationship with my partner, my family, friends and work associated. Manhood was worth every second.

What has changed and will continue to change is my relationship with my mother and the relationship with my wife and daughter. The manhood experience will also change the way I am seeing and relating to myself.

I feel deeply better about myself and have gained a new appreciation of the value of having honest open hearted relationships with my male friends and looking for ways to nurture these relationships. Thanks Nicholas for your leadership, honesty, vulnerability, friendship and support.” Sol Ramana

On completion of the Practitioner Training the trainee will be qualified to apply for Breathworker accreditation with the Australian Breathwork Association and gain professional Indemnity insurance from OAMPS Insurance Brokers (about $220/year).

* Government Certification

This is optional (you can practice without it) those who want Government certification can apply to International Breathwork Trainings (RTO). This can be done any time after finishing the Practitioner Training. Fees for Government Certification III & IV in Breathwork are currently about $1,500.


To participate in the training you need to have a personal commitment to your own healing process and a desire to help others. As the training will prepare you to practice healing you do not have to feel ready to be a therapist right now. You simply need to feel a desire to bring more love into the world. An important aspect of the training will be to expose and release blockages that may restrict your confidence as a healer.

I believe that healers are like bridges or conduits. The healer guides the client from where they are to as far as that particular healer can go. We need different kinds of healers with different experiences and backgrounds to draw on. People seem to be magically drawn to particular healers because that healer can help them to cross their next bridge. This is good news for the healer because it means that to be able to assist others it is not necessary to have ‘it all together’!
