Breathwork Instructor

An extensive 4-week program including 5 live calls with Michaël Bijker

The next course starting July 3, 2021 

4 weeks of Transformation

As a LIFE AWARENESS™ breathwork instructor, you will not only learn to share techniques and knowledge. It’s also your attention, your ‘vibe’, and the state of mind that you are sharing.

It is my strong belief that to become a great instructor, you have to become what you teach. That’s what we will focus on. In the 4 weeks that we have together you will be working on mastering the breathing and meditation techniques yourself as well as how you can share them with others.

Ingunn Hegge
"Michael is a unique teacher, and I am so happy to have practiced with him this last year. I have almost all his online courses, and I have enjoyed them so much. Taking the breathwork instructor course has given me a deep understanding of breathwork and I am excited and grateful to have this knowledge, and to share it with the world! Thank you!"
Margje Tan-Frijns
"I think I can’t thank you enough for this wonderful course! I really enjoyed every minute of it. Since 2009, not a year passed without me taking a course to develop myself, professionally or personally. So, I’ve seen a lot of teachers and I can truly say that you are one of the very few that really stands out. You are congruent, pure, and you really live what you teach. The course itself is set up very good, the structure is clear and really logical. It’s a profound and complete course, even though it’s online right now. I totally enjoyed the weekly live Q&A sessions. Your open and loving energy is contagious, and your knowledge and way of spreading it is super inspiring. I truly hope to learn from you in real life one day (or more ;-)). Thank you, thank you, thank you."
Patrizia Bazzoni

Sarah Le Guenno
"I just finished the 4 weeks 'Life Awareness Breathwork Instructor Course with Michaël and I would like to tell the world how beautiful and complete this course is! Not only have I found a wonderful source of knowledge to share but as well a lot of benefits for my own self πŸ™‚ Pranayama knowledge, how to generate a state of peace inside, state of Gratitude, Anatomy knowledge, nutrition, advice to guide others, how to create a session that makes sense, to develop more self-awareness and personal understanding, to start your own business... all of this and more through little videos, practical sessions, assignments and written papers. The way the course is built is very accessible and Michaël shares his knowledge with much clarity and kindness πŸ™‚ This course really pushed me to go deeper inside myself and understand better the beauty of pranayama. It helped me found infinite space inside to energize and connect with something greater. Through the month I have learned to develop more kindness towards myself and bring more attention to my body and my own limits. It was really refreshing, like a new breath! I am very excited to share all of this! As a Yoga and Dance teacher, I feel I have really gained something wonderful to add to my teaching, for my student and for myself! πŸ™‚ Gratitude. I highly recommend this course! "
Heather Broussard
"These last four weeks have been truly amazing. I have experienced changes on so many levels from subtle to profound. After the first week, my insomnia disappeared and I began to wake up energized every morning. I no longer depend on coffee to get me through the day. My digestion has improved, my shoulder pain is gone. I can think more more brain fog!!! Even my creative inspiration has returned. A whole new inner universe is available to me as each breath connects my awareness to the expansive space inside myself I never knew existed. As I feel more and more in to this space, the way I perceive time changes. Before, I never had time to do my days spread out before me with limitless possibilities. Thank you Michael for your authentic nature and your kind, clear instruction. Your courses are a gift to the world. Love and gratitude"
Adam J. Thomas
"Highly recommended! I really enjoyed everything about the Breathwork Instructor's Course. It's engaging, informative, progressive and practical. For me, the support to re-establish a regular daily practice was the most significant benefit and the sense of grounding that grew out of my practice was the greatest gift. Michael fully demonstrates that he embodies and practices what he teaches in this course. He makes a great tutor and role model for a teacher. I now feel very confident about teaching breathwork to other people. Thank you for sharing this gift, Michaël!"
Mick Clune
"Michael's delivery style is just perfect, unhurried and very relaxing. The quality of the additional resources is outstanding and I will be referring back to this course regularly for inspiration. Deep thanks Michael for a very stimulating and thought provoking course."

Q: How much time will I need per day to do the course

In this 4-week course it is not only the goal to be knowledgable in the facts scientific facts and know-how of breathwork, but also to BE a good teacher by developing your own practice and get clear what your true goal is in life and what could be blocking you from reaching this.

So, besides watching and studying the pre-recorded lectures, you will also have to do daily breathwork sessions (either guided sessions or by yourself), and make daily journaling assignments. This will take around 2 x 50 minutes of your day, depending on the session you want to do.

The course takes 4-weeks and consists of the following elements you will have to do every day, in your own time at your own pace:

  • Watch/ study the pre-recorded video lectures and written lectures. (5 – 20 minutes per lecture)
  • Daily journaling assignment for the morning and evening (this will take about 5-10 minutes per session)
  • Doing a breathwork session by yourself or do one of the guided sessions that are included in the course. (30 – 50 minutes per session)

Also, there will be live Q&A sessions. If you somehow cannot join them, you can watch a recording of the session. There will be:

  • 1 live welcoming video session with an explanation and a short meditation to set your intention for your path to become a great teacher.
  • 4 Live video sessions with Q&A of around 60 minutes every Saturday during the 4 week course at 16:00 (London time)

Q: I can't make the live sessions, can I still do the course?

It can happen that you cannot join some of the Live Q&A sessions for whatever reason. It is off course best to join them, however, if you can’t join the live session it is still possible to watch it afterwards as well. All students will get exclusive access to all recorded material.

Q: When will the Live sessions take place?

During the 4-week course, there will be 5 live sessions on every Saturday at 16:00 London Time.
In case you cannot make it to the live sessions, which of course can happen, you can watch a recording of the session.

Q: Why is this course so much cheaper than other breathwork instructor/ coach courses?

It is my mission to share this knowledge with as many people as possible, not to make it a business. There are off course a lot of costs made and people have to be paid (a programmer, web designer, marketing personnel, advertisements, my own cost of living etc. ). This is what I feel is a fair price to pay for this knowledge, to have the commitment and to support our project.

Q: How do I receive a certificate of completion for this course?

In order to receive a certificate of completion, one must have done all the lectures and must pass the test at the end of the course. You will then receive an email to download your certificate!

Q: For how long will I have access to the course material?

You will have “Lifetime” access to the course material. Which means for as long as the Life Awareness Project is online which is for many more decades to come 🙂
