The Breatheology Instructor
Certification Program

The Breatheology Instructor Certification program is developed by Stig Severinsen and distilled from more than 10 years of coaching the Breatheology Method.

The Method has proven its worth in helping people rehabilitate faster from PTSD/Anxiety and normal daily stress to Olympic gold-winning athletes and Navy SEALs increase their mental power and keep calm in stressful situations.

The Instructor program is specially designed to let you adapt the Breatheology Method to your line of work and expertise.  

The program will go in-depth with human anatomy, mental triggers, psychology and communication and all the aspects of the Breatheology Method. In this program, Stig, for the first time, will also be sharing his secret tips and coaching methods.

The program will be an intensive 8 weeks training combining video eLearning with weekly video conferences, Q&A calls and ending with a 3 days certification workshop.  There will be a closed "Student accountability group” so you can train and learn with other like-minded people from around the world.

Of course, we will bring on other world-class experts from various fields to truly make this a very unique experience and a certification that you will be able to use in your own training and business.
