Breathe to Heal

40-hour facilitator training

“Our aim as teachers is to facilitate post-traumatic healing and arrive at post-traumatic freedom.”

This training will take you deep inside yourself to experience and fully understand the impact of the Breathe To Heal system. The course is open to therapists, social and health professionals, coaches, and (yoga) teachers who want to add Max’s method to their healing repertoire.

Max Strom Breathe to Heal

What will this training cover?

The training reveals a new understanding of the interconnectedness between anxiety, loneliness, and un-reconciled grief as they are all aspects of the central issue of our relationship with others and ourselves. Through healing we enhance our ability to have a deeper connection in our relationships, and the reclaiming of tranquility and peace in our daily lives and body. 

  • Experiencing the interconnection of the emotions with the body. Understanding connection, vulnerability, isolation, and intimacy. 
  • Communication: Which questions to ask to quickly ascertain the cause of client/patient’s primary wound.
  • Learn to identify symptomatic facial expressions, postures, and gestures.
  • Daily breathing patterns for the alleviation and prevention of anxiety and the cultivation of emotional health.
  • Evolutionary breathing patterns to release suppressed emotions from the past. These breathing patterns access memory and emotions that were buried long ago. From this access, we gain insight that empowers us to make new and meaningful life decisions.
  • Using guided visualizations as a way in for rapid emotional healing.
  • Contra-indications: when to not advise certain breathing exercises or visualizations.
  • Writing exercises, self-reflections, and discussion.

Retreat + Training

28 March – 3 April 2022
The Netherlands


This spring we offer a unique opportunity of 7 full days of intensive training with Max while staying at beautiful retreat center de Wierschuur in the country side in North Holland.

We’ll be working with a very small group limited to 19 people in an intimate setting to assure personal attention. Because this training takes place in a retreat form you will be able to take everything in to the fullest without any distractions but for the birds singing outside and the smells of delicious food being prepared for you. The way is cleared for you to apply complete focus to your studies, your own growth and healing and to connect to your fellow students. Upon completion of this training you will be an official facilitator of Max Strom’s Breathe to Heal techniques.
