Why Is Guiding breathing with science-based tools and holistic focus so important?


...while not forgetting the art and magic of breathwork...

Breath is the main tool to affect the nervous system. Through breath, regulating the nervous system and stress levels becomes available to everyone!

Breath can be used consciously, but getting a grasp of the deeper dimensions of the breath is essential for building an authentic connection to oneself and eventually, healing on all levels.

The world of breathwork is vast. There is a lot of misinformation and myths out there. To base your breathing toolbox on knowledge of science, physiology and somatic psychology while understanding the energetics of the human system, will benefit you and your clients in the long run.

Breathing patterns affect your self-esteem, confidence and efficiency of communication. Breathing is essential in how you express yourself and how you can relate to other people on a more profound level.

A human being is not a machine. Intensive emotions, traumas, past experiences and dissociation from the body are all visible in one’s breathing patterns. When you affect the breath, you affect the whole being. It is important to learn to appreciate the breath from different perspectives.

Sleeping problems, anxiety, fear, concentration difficulties, digestive issues, hypertension and low energy (+ other signs of dysregulation) can be efficiently treated with breathing tools.

Through breathing, one can build both physiological and psychological resilience - the ability to surf on life's waves and strengthen. Good resilience equals to good performance capacity (in any area of life).

Dysfunctional breathing habits correlate strongly with various chronic conditions and disorders. There is a strong need for high-quality breath coaching! Health care professionals, coaches, yoga teachers and bodyworkers need to know how to guide breathing.

As dysfunctional breathing habits very often cause excess tension and dysfunctional movement patterns in the body, it is essential to know some basic somatic practices for re-aligning and restoring balance. This is also extremely important in case of trauma and nervous system dysregulation.

Not all opt for meditation as a calming, restoring practice. Still practices will bring up a lot of anxiety and unease among a great part of the population. Skillful use of the breath can be a much more accessible practice for many.

Let your free and functional breath flow!

Whom Is This For?


Training is designed for (but not limited only to)

  • Life / health coaches who want to widen their understanding of breath, nervous system and somatic tools for serving their clients in a more holistic way and standing out from the crowd with their expertise
  • Yoga teachers - to increase skills in cuing breath and affecting the nervous system in a desired way, to understand the foundations of pranayama techniques and their goals (YACEP course)
  • Health care professionals
  • Physiotherapists
  • Psychologists, psychotherapists and those giving work counseling - to incorporate breathing tools, somatic practices and the polyvagal perspective into their work
  • Other mental health professionals (working for example with burnout and CFS/ME patients)
  • Other therapists and bodyworkers
  • Fitness coaches and personal trainers - to help their clients recover faster, train safer and increase aerobic capacity with the help of breathing
  • School teachers, kindergarten teachers, youth work specialists
  • HR professionals and those working in professions of interaction
  • Those who value knowledge, accurate scientific information and evidence-based tools but do not shy introduction to the spiritual realms of the breath
  • Those looking for more professional tools to help, serve and support their clients
  • Those interested in self-development, natural tools for stress & nervous system regulation, recovery and healing, finding their own voice and setting healthy boundaries

Whom Is This Not For?

  • The training introduces a wide knowledge base that will support you both professionally and personally for the rest of your life. However, if you are at the moment very exhausted, burned out, extremely busy or in an acute state in which taking care of yourself is more important than educating yourself into breathing and nervous system health, this training might not be for you.
  • If you are looking for quick fixes or protocols for your own or for your client’s situation. Coaching is about applying the learned knowledge in real life situations, meeting the client where he/she is and working with the client together searching solutions for problems. It’s a process, as is breath.

Allerede tidlig i kursforløpet ble jeg klar over at dette kurset gikk i dybden - her var det masse spennende å sette seg inn! Samtidig ble jeg oppmerksom på at en god del forståelse og teknikker faktisk rent intuitivt ligger latent i meg. Mye har gått i dvale på grunn av stress i hverdagen og i jobbsammenheng. Kurset ble en oppvåkning! Ble bevisst på egen pust ikke var i balanse eller helt funksjonell. Det opplevdes som nesten magisk når ting "klikket på plass". Samtidig ble det også så tydelig at pusten må pleies og brukes med kjærlighet og omtanke.

Kursets kvalitet, både oppbygning, innhold og formidling, var over all forventning. Fin balanse mellom teori og praktiske øvelser. Sanni er en dyktig formidler, god pedagog og ydmyk i møte med spørsmål. Rett og slett imponerende.

- TONE KIRKSÆTHER SKOGMO

Sanni besitter enormt mye forskningsbasert kunnskap om hjernen og kroppen, men viktigst av alt: hun viser svært god helhetlig forståelse for interaksjonen mellom ulike prosesser i hjernen, kroppen og omgivelsene, og den gjensidige påvirkningen mellom disse. Hun er engasjert og en veldig god formidler, med mye humor og varme, samtidig som måten hun presenterer informasjonen på gjør det både interessant og lett å forstå. Det har hele veien vært god balanse mellom praktiske øvelser og teori, som har bidratt til at timene har gått fort! Det har også vært med flere dyktige gjesteforelesere, som har tilført kurset enda mer bredde og dybde.

Theoretical Background


Breathing Unlimited™ Breath Coach Training is multidisciplinary. It means that there is no one single breathing method or tradition the training relies on. In this training, you learn to apply basic principles to a variety of situations and clients. You learn to coach people with everyday challenges as well as those wanting to dig deeper into the body's wisdom. You will also learn to hold space for deeper transformative breathwork sessions.

This map might help you to figure out where Breathing Unlimited™ training stands in relation to the wide breathwork field. The focus is on 3 themes: Breathing for Health & Performance, Breathing for Self-Regulation & Co-Regulation, and Breathing for Transformation.

Testimonials


I'm super grateful for this course! I'm a performing dance artist that has struggled with long-term fatigue. I joined the course to get a deeper knowledge about breath and health in hopes of understanding myself better. The combination of theory and practice has been really helpful in connecting all the threads of information, to understand the functions of breathing in both an embodied and intellectual way.


Throughout the course I gained more and more consciousness around my own breathing. I learned that I have a habit of chronic hyperventilation and unconscious breath holds, and inhibited movement in my diaphragm. By implementing things I learned in the course in to my daily life, I can now finally find rest and calmness in my breathing. I feel more grounded in myself and have more tools to regulate my nervous system. This is really important knowledge and I feel inspired to bring it forward to more people.


Sanni is a great teacher with lots of knowledge and heart. During the course we got introduced to different traditions and methods of breathwork, and always with focus on functionality. I really liked Sanni's focus on science without losing the spiritual aspect of breathing. We also had a few guest teachers that talked from their expertise which gave an even wider view of the field of breathing. I really recommend the breath coach training and I think it's relevant for everyone that are interested.

- VESLEMøy miranda frengstad

The last couple of years I had been getting increasingly interested in the breath and trying various breathing methods that I found online, like Wim Hof. However, the choice of breathing methods out there is overwhelming and I wanted to get a better understanding of the breathwork world. I was delighted to find Mindgrit’s Breath Coach Training in Trondheim in English!

 
The training is multidisciplinary and covers everything to do with the breath, theory and practice in 100 hours of training over 5 weekends. Sanni is an excellent and super knowledgeable teacher who knows how to create a safe and comfortable learning environment. I have thoroughly enjoyed the weekends and learned so much.
The training also has an online environment with slides and videos of all the lectures and practices we did in the weekends.

 
I have integrated breathing practices into my life and feel stronger and more balanced. I’m excited to start coaching others to explore the power of the breath. I highly recommend Sanni’s Breath Coach Training to anyone seriously interested in learning about the breath.

- CAROLINE DURVILLE

Jeg er kjempefornøyd med å ha tatt breath coach training med Sanni og Mindgrit! Jeg er blant annet yogalærer, og er godt kjent med effekten pusten har på nervesystemet, men dette var et mye dypere dykk ned i pustens mysterier. Det var utrolig lærerikt og interessant både for min egen del og for å formidle videre.


Jeg er superimponert over det rikholdige innholdet i læringsportalen. Dette er innhold vi har tilgang til for all tid, og vi kan gå tilbake når som helst dersom vi vil se opptak av undervisningene eller få en repetisjon av praktiske øvelser.

 
Jeg bor i Molde, og hadde mulighet til å delta online på tre av de fem samlingene, og det fungerte utmerket også via zoom. Jeg følte meg ivaretatt av Sanni gjennom skjermen, men det var selvfølgelig aller best når jeg var tilstede fysisk – da var det enda enklere å delta i diskusjoner og meningsutvekslinger med de andre deltagerne. Sanni er veldig kunnskapsrik, og hun hadde også med seg andre gjesteforelesere innimellom – alt i alt var dette helt topp!

- INGRID KVANDE

Jeg meldte meg på dette kurset først og fremst som et tiltak for min egen helse, i håp om å lære mer om pusten og hvilken påvirkning den kan ha med tanke på stress, smerter og slitenhet. Jeg jobber selv med mennesker med komplekse og sammensatte utfordringer, og skjønte raskt at alt jeg lærte også kunne være relevant og veldig nyttig for mange av mine egne pasienter.

 
Sanni besitter enormt mye forskningsbasert kunnskap om hjernen og kroppen, men viktigst av alt: hun viser svært god helhetlig forståelse for interaksjonen mellom ulike prosesser i hjernen, kroppen og omgivelsene, og den gjensidige påvirkningen mellom disse. Hun er engasjert og en veldig god formidler, med mye humor og varme, samtidig som måten hun presenterer informasjonen på gjør det både interessant og lett å forstå. Det har hele veien vært god balanse mellom praktiske øvelser og teori, som har bidratt til at timene har gått fort! Det har også vært med flere dyktige gjesteforelesere, som har tilført kurset enda mer bredde og dybde.

 
En får tilgang til utrolig mange gode verktøy på nettet, med bl.a. videoer med øvelser og forelesninger, i tillegg til mye annen nyttig kunnskap. Anbefaler dette kurset for alle i grunn, men kanskje særlig om en ønsker økt forståelse, kunnskap og hjelp for seg selv, og/eller for å hjelpe andre. For min egen del har det vært verdt alle pengene, da helsa er mye bedre og mine ønsker med kurset er oppnådd.

- RANDI NYJORDET

Som holistisk helseveileder og yoga terapeut er jeg alltid nysgjerrig på kunnskap, metoder og verktøy for å utføre jobben min til det beste for de som er i behov av min tjeneste.


Breath Coach Training med Sanni er noe av det mest nyttige og ikke minst nødvendige å lære, forstå og formidle akkurat nå. Sanni har en enorm kapasitet, er en fantastisk formidler og et oppkomme av kunnskap. Dette er en utdanning med høy faglig kvalitet, solid forankret i internasjonale studier og evidensbaserte metoder.


Dette er en komplett utdanning som dekker alle nivå og alle tema når det kommer til helsefremmende arbeid med pusten i fokus. Både i forebyggende perspektivet, for å endre, heale og reparere uheldige helsemønster, samt for rekreasjon og restitusjon.


For meg personlig ble denne utdanningen et vendepunkt. Jeg trodde jeg pustet dypt, jeg trodde jeg var i god helseform. Helt til jeg startet opp med å utforske teori og praksis i eget liv. Mitt forhold til pusten er før og etter Breath Coach utdanningen.

- INGRID

Highly recommend this course. Sanni is a wonderful teacher, extremely insightful, open and humble. A transformation not to be missed.

- NICOLA MARSH

Jeg meldte meg på kurset for å kunne tilby mine pasienter pusteveiledning i deres angstbehandling og også for egenhjelp og -trening i en travel hverdag.


Allerede etter første samling kjente jeg på min egen kropp at den ble mykere, jeg fikk mer energi og jeg merket ikke at vi gikk inn i mørketida på samme måte som tidligere år. Gjennom 5 samlinger på 5 måneder har vi gjort dypdykk i vitenskapen om pust. Sanni er en meget kunnskapsrik foreleser - hun belyser temaet pust fra ulike fagmiljøer rundt om i verden - fra vesten og østen. 


Vi elever har med oss en tung teoretisk bagasje etter denne vinteren. Samtidig er vi trent til å videreformidle hvordan pust og bevegelse gir mer harmoni i kroppen. Og til slutt, å kunne veilede enkeltindivider med deres puste-utfordringer.


Jeg vil absolutt anbefale dette kurset . Det er mange preparater i husapoteket vi kan kaste når vi får lært oss selvregulering ved bruk av pusten vår. Takk Sanni, takk!

- KJELLRUN REITAN NORDTØMME

Jeg meldte meg på kurset av flere grunner, blant annet fordi: En fasinasjon over hvordan kropp og sinn fungerer og hvordan vi selv kan påvirke dette med bevisst bruk av vår egen pusten. Derfor søkte jeg etter mer innsikt i hvordan pusten virker inn og verktøy for å optimalisere pusten i gitte situasjoner. Tanken var at dette kunne jeg dra nytte av selv og bruke denne kunnskap i jobbsammenheng. Jeg er sosionom som jobber med psykososial oppfølging i livskriser og tap.

Allerede tidlig i kursforløpet ble jeg klar over at dette kurset gikk i dybden - her var det masse spennende å sette seg inn! Samtidig ble jeg oppmerksom på at en god del forståelse og teknikker faktisk rent intuitivt ligger latent i meg. Mye har gått i dvale på grunn av stress i hverdagen og i jobbsammenheng. Kurset ble en oppvåkning! Ble bevisst på egen pust ikke var i balanse eller helt funksjonell. Det opplevdes som nesten magisk når ting "klikket på plass". Samtidig ble det også så tydelig at pusten må pleies og brukes med kjærlighet og omtanke.

Kursets kvalitet, både oppbygning, innhold og formidling, var over all forventning. Fin balanse mellom teori og praktiske øvelser. Sanni er en dyktig formidler, god pedagog og ydmyk i møte med spørsmål. Rett og slett imponerende.

Jeg vil på det varmeste anbefale kurset kurset til deg som er nysgjerrig på å lære mer om pusten. Du vil trolig få en utrolig reise på flere plan og nyttige verktøy for egen del og eventuelt i jobbsammenheng. Jeg er sikker på at du ikke vil angre dersom du melder deg på kuret!

- Tone kirksæther skogmo

Jeg meldte meg på dette kurs med utgangspunkt i at det skulle være en gave til meg selv, etter langvarig sykdom.
En gave blev det! Kurset er absolut det beste jeg har gjort for meg selv hidtil i mit rehabiliteringsforløb.
Ro, glede, frihed og tillid er vanskelig å opnå med et ubalanceret nervesystem!

Jeg var veldig i tvil om jeg ku klare dette kurs, om jeg hadde energi, kapacitet osv. Heldigvis var der fin balance mellem teori og praksis, hvilket gjorde at det lykkes for meg å være med. Og det ble en kjempe mestring.

Den teoretiske del har vært utrolig interessant og en øjenåbner for hvor viktig pusten er for vår helse.
Sanni er en meget dedikeret underviser, med enorm kunnskap og engagement! Hun får skapt et trygt miljø, hvor er der plass til å være seg selv, bare være, og samtidig pushe litt grenser også. 
Det har vært utrolig artig, givende og inspirerende å være i en gruppe med ulike mennesker, som har en felles interessen, nemlig pusten.

Jeg fik det jeg kom etter. Og så mye mer! Å jobbe i dybden med pusten har åpnet masse nye døre. Det har økt min forbindelse til kroppen. Min tillid og intuition har vokst og vokser stadig, og det er en helt nydelig gave å gi seg selv. Jeg har fået kendskab til mit pustemønster, og det hjælpe meg masse hver dag, til at forstå meg selv, mine behov og hvor jeg skal legge min energi.

Dette har vært og er fortsatt en spændende rejse. Min kropp heler fortsatt, og pusten er blevet min støtte og veiveiser i denne process. Jeg er taknemmelig for at jeg tok chancen og meldt meg på!
Takk for denne mulighet, Sanni 🙏🏻

- Hellene Thordahl Sklett

Jeg deltok i dette kurset da jeg som fysioterapeut hadde behov for mer kunnskap vedrørende pusten og ulike pusteøvelser jeg kunne tilby mine pasienter. Det ble en fantastisk reise i et flott kurs fra a - å. Jeg lærte utrolig mye nytt, både teori og praksis, til nytte både for mine pasienter, men også for meg selv personlig. Jeg lærte at pusten og nytten av å kunne mer om denne også hadde mye mer å si for meg i mitt daglige liv. Jeg fikk selv oppdage flere "nye" nivåer i mitt eget "stress liv" jeg ikke visste jeg hadde - så mye god læring, praksis og øvelser også til meg.

 
Dette er et veldig bra kurs satt sammen av Sanni. Jeg er svært imponert over hennes generøsitet, både i omfang av tema, øvelser, variasjon i teori og praksis, hvor mye hun byr på deg selv, hands-out, svært god Zoom dekning om du ikke har anledning til å komme fysisk - og tilgang til alt dette på hennes egen websiden!!!

 
Jeg har vært på mange kurs opp igjennom og mange er veldig bra og tilbyr mye, men ofte mangler den siste lille prikken over i-en. Det gjør det ikke her. Jeg synes kurset er supert både faglig og teknisk med en deilig, rolig regi. Kurset anbefales på det varmeste - egnet for alle 🙂

- ANNE F

I joined the course with the purpose of improving my resistance to stress, being able to relax better and using the breath for improving health. In addition, I wanted to improve my breathing abilities in pranayama.

 
I am still amazed by the sheer volume of content we have gone through. It's been scientifically grounded, holistic, thorough, rich, deep and interesting, with a solid combination of theory and practise. I have been practising some of the exercises at home and am working on getting a stable breathing practise 2-3 times a day. The course gave me a lot of background and material to work on further. The online platform is a great opportunity to continue working. Later on, after having practised more myself, I would like to offer breath coaching to others.


Sanni has deep knowledge and broad experience in the field and is a very inspiring teacher! Also, I appreciate the motivation she gave us to start our own breath coach journey and the tools to make this process more smooth.

- BREATH COACH TRAINING PARTICIPANT 2023

Jeg meldte meg på kurset fordi jeg i flere år har drevet med Wim Hof og Buteyko pusting, som jeg har lært på You Tube. Kurset var kjærkommet for å skaffe meg innsikt i teori, og jeg er imponert over Sannis kunnskap, formidling og balanse mellom teori og praktiske øvelser.


Jeg er utdannet psykoterapeut/kunstterapeut og veldig opptatt av det ubevisste. Sannis guiding inn i pustens verden ga meg tilgang til det ubevisste uten språk og analyse.


Jeg likte godt at det ble invitert andre fagpersoner inn som delte sin ekspertise, og gjorde kurset til en interessant helhet.
Jeg bruker mye av det jeg har lært i min hverdag som lærer. Jeg har pustepauser med elevene og bruker teknikker for å holde stressnivået nede når det stormer. Jeg snakker varmt om kurset og opplever at mange er nysgjerrig og ønsker å lære om pusting.

Jeg meldte meg på reisen sammen med Sanni da jeg kom over kurset på IG. En reise jeg er veldig takknemlig for at jeg valgte å hoppe på. Transformerende i den grad at jeg ikke kan vente til å dele og gi mennesker muligheten til å finne sitt «pusteavtrykk» og hvordan komme i kontakt med seg selv på fantastisk vis. 


Innholdet til Sanni har vært gjennomgående tydelig, har tyngde og vært veldig informativt. Jeg føler jeg har fått teori og praksis i skjønn forening. Sanni er tydelig hele veien og kommer tilbake til helheten hele veien. Hun deler inn teorien godt, men tar oss alltid tilbake til det store bildet og sammenhengen mellom pust, kropp, sjel, natur og alle deres sykluser. Lærerne som følger oss på reisen sammen med Sanni gir kurset enda et løft. Vi er innom alt det nødvendige, biokjemi, biomekanikk, anatomi, fysiologi, hvor pusten er senteret hele veien. Med øvelser og praksis som gjenspeiler teorien og gir kroppen en ro og kontakt til vårt indre.


Tusen tusen takk for reisen med deg og de andre kursdeltakerne, Sanni. En sann glede, som har gitt meg verktøy for alle livets nedturer og oppturer!! Jeg anbefaler kurset til alle som har et ønske om å ta et dypdykk inn i denne fantastiske verden.

Frequently asked questions

Is this training in English eller på norsk?

Breath Coach Training will be taught in English. All lecturers speak good Norwegian, and it is completely possible to ask all questions and go through all discussions in Norwegian. Equally - it is also fine to talk English. Also the home exam can be written in either languages (or in Swedish). You do not find a training with this scope in Norwegian - or in English for that matter - so this might be worth considering when considering participation.

What is the Breathing Unlimited™ method?

Breathing Unlimited™ started to grow from Sanni's popular online breathing course in Finland. The method is drawing inspiration from various modalities: Integrative Breathing Therapy, Breathwork, Buteyko Method, Wim Hof, Yoga, Taoism, Somatic Experiencing, Feldenkrais and trauma therapy (among others). Sanni is expert in many individual breathing methods / approaches, but chooses to combine them under one and the same roof, into a holistic multidisciplinary training.

What is special about this training?

In this training, you will receive a wide variety of different breathing techniques and methods to be practiced on your own and to be shared with clients. The goal is that the future coaches understand
- why a certain technique / method is used
- when to use it
- what kind of approach suits what kind of people

You will learn to apply the source principles of breath & nervous system knowledge to a wide variety of situations and clients. You will also learn a bunch of somatic tools to be used alongside the breathing tools. You will be taught and given 4 different ready-made breathing programs to be used with clients (or in your own practice). Programs are: Breathing for More Calm, Breathing for More Energy, Breathing for Healing and Breathing for Balance.

In addition, this training introduces you to somatic psychology, breathing's role in development, emotions and interaction, and the energetics of the human system.

Do I get a certificate?

After passing the final (home) exam you will receive 100h Breathing Unlimited™ Breath Coach certification by Mindgrit. If you are a yoga teacher and registered with Yoga Alliance, you can apply for 100 CEUs.

After being certified, you can choose to call yourself, for example, as pusteveileder, pustecoach, breath coach, breathing coach, breath guide, breathwork facilitator or breathwork professional.

When is the course payment due?

Non-refundable and non-transferable deposit of 3000 NOK is due at registration to reserve your space in the training. Deposit is included into the course fee, so it's not an extra payment. Rest of the course fee can be paid in 1 or 4 installments. Check the due dates in course info!

If I join from outside of Trondheim or Oslo, which weekends do I need to participate in-person?

Weekends 1, 2 & 4 are mandatory to participate in Trondheim or Oslo. During those weekends, you will learn manual techniques, go deeper into your own process and do some pair/group work.

On other weekends it is possible to join via Zoom connection (100 % attendance expected). The sessions will also be recorded so it is possible to return to them as many times as you like.
