Breath-Body-Mind Teacher Training, Level 1

For healthcare professionals, therapists, yoga teachers, school teachers, military, and disaster relief workers.

Breath-Body-Mind integrates ancient and modern trauma-sensitive techniques to rapidly balance stress-response systems for self-care and healing others. Developed by medical doctors Richard P. Brown and Patricia Gerbarg, Breath-Body-Mind has proven benefits for healthcare professionals, patients, military veterans, and survivors of mass disasters, including the Asia tsunami, 9/11, the Gulf oil spill, the Rwanda genocide, and slavery in Sudan.

Training and results include

  • Movement, breathing, meditation, practice-teaching, neurophysiology, research, and clinical issues
  • Unique techniques to calm central fear-processing networks and reduce physical/psychological symptoms of anxiety, depression, and post-traumatic stress disorder
  • Modules on working in military settings and on working with children
  • Improved mental focus, energy, productivity, sleep, empathy, connectedness, and joy.

Breath-Body-Mind complements other mind-body programs, enhancing well-being, meditation, and transformation.
