The Breatheology Instructor
Certification Program

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

The Breatheology Method has proven its worth in helping people rehabilitate faster from PTSD/Anxiety, deal with daily stress, boost the athletic performance of Olympic gold-winning athletes and help 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 goes in-depth with human anatomy, mental triggers, psychology and communication and all the aspects of breathing and the Breatheology coaching method. In this program, Stig will also be sharing his secret tips and coaching methods for the first time.

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.

Self-study, Online Training and Coaching Calls

The program is an intensive 8 week training combining video eLearning with weekly video conferences, Q&A calls and ends with a 3 days certification workshop.  There will be a closed "Student Accountability Group” so you can train with like-minded Instructors students from around the world.
