Ascension Breathwork Teacher Training
Class 1: The 6 Breaths and Best Practices in Conducting Your Class
How to talk about Ascension Breathwork
I am not a doctor, none of what I say is medical advice. If you are not a medical doctor, let your participants know with a similar statement. If someone has health issues that need medical clearance, let your participants know that they should have that done before participating in your breathwork classes.
What does breathwork help with? Do not make medical claims, use anecdotal stories and client testimonials. Do not guarantee any specific outcome. Every person will have a unique, personal experience.
Breathwork can be claimed to reduce stress.
My clients have also experienced trauma release, diminished depression, enhanced sleep, pain relief, energetic upliftment, mood enhancement, a feeling of release, heightened intuition, a feeling of euphoria, even ecstacy.
Trauma is stored IN THE BODY- trauma is released from the body through the breathwork.
Getting more oxygen into the cells is one reason breathwork is so effective.
The Defense dept recommends breathwork for Veterans
Navy Seals learn breathwork
Designing a session and The 5 Breaths
Start out reclining;
Bring Intention to mind and heart- use this time to set the intention for the class and experience- creating sacred space.
The Heart Breath (gentle but uplifting music)– gently informing the breath through the heart center and into the belly
- Setting the stage for expanding the belly on the inhale, contracting on the exhale
- Relaxing into parasympathetic state, deep peace, connection to heart energy
The 3 Part Breath aka Shamanic Breath (use rhythmic music that guides the breath)
This is where trauma release happens
- 2 quick inhales through the mouth, one quick exhale through the nose.
- Tips: like sucking in air through a straw, cycling the breath, figure 8 the breath, the golden light of transformation
Tetany- ⅓ to ½ of people who do breathwork experience this, and more in the Shamanic breath.
Tetany is characterized by cramping, tightening, tingling, paralyzing, or numbing sensations of the hands and/or feet and even the face.

Invite surrender and letting GO-
“When the resistance to the resistance ceases, there is peace.”
What are you resisting FEELING?
Pent up emotions, they were stored due to unwillingness or inability to process through them and feel them OUT.
Breath Holds (peaceful, uplifting music)
Time for 60 seconds– remid your participants to take another breath as needed- do not pass out. This is not a competition, simply do your best but to not cause yourself pain. These can be taken through the nose or mouth.
Inhale– guide to first take a deep breath, exhale deeply, then inhale and hold
Exhale– guide to first take a deep exhale, inhale deeply, then exhale half way or to a comfortable point and hold the exhale (not to squeeze out all of the air)
(repeat a second round of the 3 part shamanic breath and then sit up after second round of 3 part breath to do the second set of breath holds and the Kundalini breath)
Kundalini Breath (considering an alternative name, music can be dramatic and ecstatic)– Squeeze and flow energy up the spine, awakening the Kundalini energy, allowing the energy centers to charge, balance, align, and allowing the energy built up to be fully released.
Demonstrate the squeeze and flow- guide the participants up the body with your verbal description. Do not take longer than 60 seconds for the participants to hold and squeeze to prevent fainting. Fainting is discouraged and could cause a participant to hit their head. (This has happened to me on multiple occasions, it is not recommended )
Chakras vs energy centers- use language that works for your audience. You may want to simply name the areas of the body that the energy is flowing through…the base of the spine, the stomach, the heart, throat, brain, etc.
The Torus Field- energy is building as we flow up the spine on the hold, squeeze and flow, then release out the top in a torus field of energy. The field goes out the top of the head, around the body and enters back in the base of the spine.
Shavasana (Back to reclining position, use very gently, relaxing music)– give your participants time to rest and integrate their session. I recommend a minimum of 5-10 minutes. It’s ok if they fall asleep. Wake them gently and peacefully if they are asleep at the end of the session.
