Breathwork Facilitator Training: Level 1

    Level 1 of the Foundation course for Conscious Connected Breathwork

    September 20-22, 2024 with Trevor Yelich


    Ready to take your next step in weaving the transformational modality of Conscious, Connected Breathwork into your own life and potentially into your heart-centered work with clients? For many people, breathwork practices evoke endless possibilities for healing and insight across the full spectrum of mind, body, spirit, and relationships. It’s a tremendous gift that is an honor to share with other humans.


    The Level 1 Breathwork Facilitator Training at Prana Yoga Studio is your first step in moving toward safely and effectively facilitating breathwork journeys for yourself and others. Our transformative weekend of exploration will primarily focus on deepening your personal experience with these potent approaches to breathing along with many other approaches, techniques and tools that can be effectively woven in to a breathwork journey.


    We will spend time learning about some foundational aspects of this healing modality and develop a selection of creative resources that can be implemented in support of optimal self-regulation. These resources will be deeply supportive whether applied within your day-to-day life or while participating in these powerful processes.


    You will receive four immersive breathwork journeys that strategically incorporate a variety of supplementary contemplative, sound, and somatic exercises to develop direct experience with what is possible within transformational breathwork sessions.


    In the Level 1 training, you will also:


    • learn basic history, philosophy, theory, and contraindications for the practice of conscious, connected breathwork
    • learn about different non-ordinary states of consciousness and their importance
    • experience the use of intentions, invocations, and the setting of sacred space/confidentiality
    • learn about the use of music and other basic breathwork session tools
    • experience alternate breathing styles for varied effects
    • receive basic post-breathwork session grounding and integrating practices
    • learn about some common session experiences (eg. tetany) and functional responses to them
    • begin studying how to foster a confidential, loving healing space
    • gain experience integrating movement and physical support exercises into breathwork journeys for optimal outcomes
    • cultivate the capacity to for healthy self-regulation

    LEVEL 2: December 13-15, 2024



    The foundations level Breathwork Facilitator Training at Prana Yoga Studio is both a living conversation and a transformational journey for self and in support of others.


    As a group, we collectively source knowledge, experience, and wisdom as we creatively color between the lines of academic learnings.  Our primary focus will be on developing and sustaining a healthy, effective therapeutic relationship within which breathwork may be safely delivered.  We will also be developing a selection of resources that can be implemented in support of the client’s optimal self-regulation whether it is within their day to day lives or while they are participating in these powerful processes.


    In levels 1 & 2 you will both receive and provide breathwork sessions with fellow students as you develop the practical skill sets required to safely facilitate transformational breathwork sessions. Participants who take both levels will receive a certificate of completion, and the opportunity to mentor with Trevor.


    I wish I could begin to tell you what this weekend meant to me/did for me… but I truly can’t even put it into words. The way I felt when I was leaving was indescribable. I will forever be grateful for you and everyone I met last weekend!

    About Trevor:

    I began questioning conventional beliefs as a child and started exploring the nature of reality around 14 years of age.  I went on to voraciously explore and study a wide array of body-mind practices and healing arts over the past 27 years.  During this period, I went through approximately seven years of what some might refer to as a dark night of the soul culminating in a 16-month hermitage aimed at waking up.

    The richness of these studies, the gamut of my life experiences, and a deep curiosity about reality, perception, and the seamlessly inter-connected mechanisms of mind and body have led to an increasingly integrated approach to healing work.

    In addition to my therapeutic work, I taught Yoga for 15 years, co-developed and co-facilitated numerous 200-hour yoga teacher trainings for both Trinity Yoga and Gaiatri Yoga, and in recent years developed and facilitated Conscious Connected Breathwork Facilitator trainings and Nūma Somatics Facilitator trainings.  I have had the blessing of sharing these trainings and related workshops all across Canada as well as leading yoga retreats in Canada, Costa Rica, and Peru.

    I have a 3-year Diploma in Acupuncture and three years of training in Somatic Experiencing.  Additionally, I’ve trained in extensively in numerous styles of Conscious Connected Breathwork, Bodynamics Somatic Psychotherapy and Hakomi Body-Centered Psychotherapy.  IFS (Internal Family Systems) also strongly influences how I work with clients.

    Other trainings and certificates I hold include Chi Nei Tsang (Visceral/Abdominal Massage), Acutonics® Vibrational Healing, Thai Massage, numerous personal development and spiritual growth group processes, North American and Peruvian Shamanism, and a wide range of personal practices including Shaolin Kung Fu, Tai Chi, Qigong, Hatha Yoga, Raja Yoga, Jnana Yoga, Vipassana and other forms of meditation, Contact Improvisation, and Continuum Movement.
