Breathwork Facilitator Apprenticeship Program
with Krystal Charlotte of Journey Into Breath
Learn to guide and support others as they access the healing power of breathwork.
Breathwork is a potent practice that is gaining recognition worldwide for its ability to help people release stored emotions, rebalance their nervous systems, and heal old patterns in their lives.
With the Journey Into Breath Apprenticeship program, you will learn how to guide others in this practice through personal 1-on-1 training and ongoing support.
The Journey Into Breath Approach
The Principles & Foundations of our Apprenticeship Program
The Benefit of 1-on-1 Training
Breathwork is a powerful and personal tool - one that can deeply impact both client and practitioner. The Journey Into Breath Apprenticeship program utilizes a 1-on-1 training approach in order to give students both the skills and confidence they require to step into the role of guide.
Working 1-on-1 ensures that all apprentices not only receive customized guidance and support, but they are also encouraged to discover and develop who they are as individuals, and how they personally relate to breathwork.
This helps them to go forward as unique and authentic practitioners, with a deep connection to self.
Hands On Practice
With a focus on preparing students for a career as a breathwork guide, the Journey Into Breath Apprenticeship Program is designed to have a strong focus on hands-on practice.
Students learn hands-on skills in a 1-on-1 environment, allowing them to receive personal feedback and guidance. They then are fully supported through multiple client sessions.
This ensures that every student becomes comfortable and confident in leading full breathwork sessions, and supporting clients deeply in the practice.
Business Structure & Strategy
The program is designed to support students who are interested in either creating a full-time breathwork practice, or adding breathwork into the services they offer their clients.
Students are given both tools and structures designed to help them create a supportive breathwork business - from intake forms and questionnaires, to client support and care.
The practices and strategies taught come from years of real-world experience and success in growing a thriving breathwork practice, and ensure students are well prepared to navigate the business side of a therapeutic wellness practice.
Relationship Centered Work
One of the most beautiful aspects of breathwork is its ability to take both client and practitioner on a continual journey to new depths with each session. For this reason, Journey Into Breath takes a relationship-centered approach to breathwork training.
Great care and attention is given to learning how to support and nurture client relationships, and to establish ongoing work together in order to help clients achieve new depths of wisdom and healing.

What is Breathwork?
Breathwork is a guided breath practice that brings us into a deep connection with our body, where we can feel and release stored tension and emotions.
This can result in profound and dramatic healing in many forms.
Experience increased feelings of safety, joy, love and empowerment
Understand and shift long-held patterns and beliefs that no longer benefit you
Improve your emotional understanding and regulation, leading to stronger, more satisfying relationships with others and with yourself
This powerful practice can help people connect deeply within, and balance their spiritual, physical and emotional selves.

"She shares her knowledge and experiences graciously and was committed to helping me succeed."
"From the very beginning, Krystal was patient, thorough and incredibly knowledgeable throughout my training. It is clear that Krystal has put her heart and soul into this work, not only as a facilitator but also as a teacher.
She shares her knowledge and experiences graciously and was committed to helping me succeed. Krystal gave me the gift of self exploration through Level 1 and challenged me in the best ways possible though Level 2. I would recommend this training to anyone who is feeling called to this work."
- Desiree Taylor
"I feel well prepared for my practice to grow and she has given me a fantastic gift to thrive being a host for others to expand their healing."
"I knew at one point in my energy work that I wanted to expand in my modalities and integrate this into my practice. I am so grateful that I could learn to be a facilitator from Krystal.
She has provided the most tangible learning material as well as practical experience, it spoke volumes and I felt so held in a space of encouragement and safety through something which is so expansive.
I feel well prepared for my practice to grow and she has given me a fantastic gift to thrive being a host for others to expand their healing.
Such abundant gratitude."

Who is this program right for?
The Journey Into Breath Apprenticeship program is designed for those who feel a deep calling to guide others in breath. It is perfect for those who are interested in becoming a full-time breathwork guide, or for coaches, therapists or other healers to add into the services they offer their clients. While the Level 1 portion of the training covers the Personal Journey, we typically recommend students to have experience with breathwork previously to ensure that they are personally called to the work.
How long is the training?
The Apprenticeship Certification Program takes place over 14 weeks, covering both Level 1 and Level 2. At this point the student is considered certified to begin practice, at which point they will enter into their practicum. Their first 50 clients will be mentored by the instructor, with regular discussion & feedback in order to provide ongoing support as the student begins their practice.
The On-going Education modules are optional and can take place at any time.
Where does the program take place?
The training typically takes place in Vancouver, BC.
For out-of-town students, Level 1 will take place online, and Level 2 will take places as a 4-day in-person intensive in Vancouver, BC. For special cases Krystal does travel to your hometown to train and additional cost may apply when needed.
How do I join and when can I begin?
In order to ensure the highest level of instruction, the Journey Into Breath Apprenticeship Program takes a limited number of students and is by application. You can access the application form here, and we encourage you to take your time filling it out. We look for students who resonate with our relationship-centered approach, and who have a high level of commitment to deepening their own inner connection as part of the path towards guiding others.
For those who are accepted into the program, training begins at a date agreed upon by both the teacher and student.
Thank you so much for your interest in our Apprenticeship Program. It is an honour to pass along the knowledge of breathwork facilitation so that others may do this work.
Important note: We only offer a very limited number of apprenticeships in order to ensure that our standards for safety are able to be held. We recommend applying when you feel ready to commit to this path both financially and with your energy and attention.
If your application is chosen you will be contacted to set up a short connection call to see if you are a good fit for our program.
We look forward to receiving your application!
