What Our Graduates Have Said
MBTT feels like the beginning of a new chapter in my life. The knowledge Breanna has about breathwork in every sense is phenomenal, not to mention her boundless knowledge in many other holistic and mindful aspects. The whole training was an immersive experience of learning, connecting, laughing, and loving. The content was broken up with us (the students) facilitating groupwork with each other, bringing our own knowledge and experiences to the table, eating delicious lunches, and exploring the beautiful land on which we were living. Every detail was thoroughly thought out by Breanna and she created such a safe, happy, and comfortable environment for everyone. I can't wait for more learning. All my love x
If you feel the pull to step into the space of being the change, becoming a lighthouse for others and guiding them into their heart space, then this is the teacher training for you. You will return to your authentic self, learn how to walk the talk and come away feeling confident in guiding others to shine their own lights bright.
Primary School Teacher
My experience with attending the breathe school teacher training was super expansive and fun. I've learnt so much about breathwork and facilitating in such a short amount of time. Breanna is an incredible talented and passionate facilitator. She has a wide knowledge about breathwork and mindfulness. This training will help me professionally and within my own practice. I would recommend this training for everyone who is looking to learn more about breathing techniques and how to facilitate and hold space for other people.

"I was lucky enough to be one of the First Group to experience Bodhi and Kats mindful breathing training . It was a really profound, connecting and inspiring experience for me set in the most stunning location at Mana retreat in NZ. Bodhi and Kat offered a beautiful balance between practical learning, spare time to relax and unwind and fun activities, not only did I learn about breathwork I also got to recharge and grow in myself as a person! As an authentic and empowered leader, to be me! Thank you so much for facilitating such a deep and Sacred space."
Musician, Change Maker and Holographic Kinetics Practitioner.
The 3 part breathing technique was very valuable and have already started applying it to self and clients. I enjoyed sending love to others at the closing ceremony, also some good reflections on how I can change my behaviour as a leader within my family.
I will be forever grateful to Kat, Bodhi and Taya for creating this Mindful Breathing Teacher Training and that I synchronistically found myself here. These two uniquely gifted humans demonstrate in their work and their lives how to live with more passion, joy and health. Creating safe and nurturing space on this Mana Training for us each to dig deep into our own souls to find our own strength and then show up with it is a gift I will cherish forever. Creating this space to meet and work with like minded souls, enjoying deep meaningful conversation, a stunning environment, YUM food has been invaluable also. Heartfelt gratitude from me to you for the breath, nourishment, support, space and learning, touching my heart and soul for 4 days and forever.
