Whatsup, fellow healers! Are you ready to take your coaching game to the next level by teaching breathwork online? I’ve gotchu! Breathwork is an ancient practice (backed by modern science) that helps people relax, soothe anxiety, and release stuck emotions and trauma so they can thrive.
With the rise of online coaching, it’s time to expand your toolkit and learn how to teach breathwork online. Not only it will add value to your coaching business, but it will also empower your clients to take their healing journey from the comfort of their home.
In this blog post, we’ll cover the basics of breathwork, the benefits of teaching it online, and actionable tips to get started. Ready, Freddy? Let’s dive in!
What is Breathwork?
Breathwork is a holistic practice that uses conscious breathing techniques to shift your body and mind into a relaxed, healing state (aka. it activates the parasympathetic “rest and digest” nervous system).
There are many variations of breathwork, such as Pranayama, Holotropic, Rebirthing, Wim Hof, Shamanic breathwork, and of course, Pause Breathwork 😉. However, the common denominator is the intentional use of breath to enhance awareness, release energetic blocks, and connect with your inner self.
Breathwork has been used for centuries in different cultures and spiritual traditions, and now it’s gaining popularity in the modern wellness and coaching world.
Why Teach Breathwork Online?
Teaching breathwork online has SO many benefits, such as:
- Accessibility: Your clients can join from anywhere in the world, which expands your reach and potential impact.
- Convenience: Your clients can choose their preferred time, place, and frequency to practice, which fits their busy lifestyle.
- Safety: Your clients can feel comfortable and secure in their own space, which is especially important for those with trauma, anxiety, or physical limitations.
- Creativity: You can design your own breathwork programs, classes, or challenges that suit your style, niche, and audience.
- Freedom: You can work from anywhere in the world with a speedy internet connection and a laptop!

How to Get Started Teaching Breathwork Online?
Now, let’s get to the juicy part! Here are some tips to get started with teaching breathwork online:
Choose your platform: You can use Zoom, Skype, Google Meet, Facebook/Instagram LIVE, or any other video conferencing tool that suits your needs and budget. Make sure to test the audio, video, and connection before the session.
Set the mood: Create a sacred space for yourself and your clients, with candles, incense, music, or anything that helps you relax and focus. Encourage your clients to do the same in their own space.
Explain the technique: Before you start the breathwork session, explain the technique you’ll be using, the benefits, and the possible sensations. Make sure your clients know how to do it safely and comfortably. You can also give them some prompts or visualizations to enhance the experience.
Guide the session: During the session, be present with your clients, and guide them through the breathwork with your voice, pace, and energy. Remember that everyone’s experience is unique, so allow them to express themselves and release whatever comes up.
Follow up: After the session, give your clients some time to integrate and ground themselves. Ask them how they feel, what they noticed, and if they have any questions or feedback. You can also offer additional resources, support, or follow-up sessions.
Bonus Tips for Teaching Breathwork Online:
Here are some extra tips to make your breathwork sessions even more awesome!
Practice self-care: As a coach, you need to take care of your own well-being, too. Practice breathwork on your own, attend workshops or sessions and stay curious and open-minded.
Collaborate with other coaches: Breathwork can complement many coaching modalities, such as mindfulness, sound healing, somatic movement/dancing, cold plunging, yoga, therapy, or fitness. Network with other coaches and offer joint sessions, programs, or events.
Experiment with different formats: Breathwork can be adapted to different formats, such as one-on-one sessions, group classes, workshops, retreats, or challenges. Be creative and see what works best for you and your clients.
Get certified: While breathwork is a safe and powerful technique, it’s also important to get proper trauma-aware training and certification.
