Healing the Healer: The Crucial Role of Self-Care and Breathwork for Breathwork Instructors

Embracing Self-Care: A Path to Sustainable Healing for Breathwork Instructors

Welcome, fellow breathwork enthusiasts and breathwork instructors of healing and guardians of breathwork's transformative power! In the intricate dance of guiding others through profound healing journeys, breathwork instructors often find themselves immersed in the sacred task of holding space for others' healing journey. Yet, in the midst of facilitating others' healing, it's easy to overlook our own mental and physical well-being.

In this blog, we delve into the essential concept of "healing the healer" – a profound acknowledgment that as breathwork instructors, our own self-care is not just a luxury but a fundamental necessity.  Here, we explore the transformative power of breathwork not only for those we guide but also for ourselves as breathwork instructors.

"Healing the Healer": the Journey of a Breathwork Instructor

"Healing the healer" in this context signifies the important process of self-restoration and rejuvenation that breathwork instructors must undertake to sustain their ability to guide others effectively on their healing paths. It underscores the notion that instructors themselves need to actively participate in healing practices, including breathwork and self-care, to reinvigorate their energy, attend to their personal needs, and avoid burnout. Thus, the phrase "Healing the healer" underscores the interconnected cycle of healing, where instructors must prioritise their own healing journey to effectively facilitate the healing processes of others.

"Healing the healer" isn't merely a catchphrase – it embodies a profound truth that we, as breathwork instructors, must wholeheartedly embrace. Just as we guide others in releasing, rejuvenating, and healing through breathwork, it's equally imperative that we dedicate time to sit back, receive, and heal ourselves.

Why is this practice as a Breathwork Instructor so crucial?

Leading by Example: Our clients not only seek our guidance but also look to us as living embodiments of breathwork's healing potential. Prioritizing our own self-care serves as a powerful example, inspiring them to do the same.

Preventing Burnout: The nature of our work is emotionally and energetically demanding. Engaging in regular self-care rituals, including breathwork, is vital for recharging our energy reserves and safeguarding against burnout. This ensures that we can continue to serve our clients wholeheartedly.

Deepening Our Practice: Through experiencing firsthand the transformative effects of breathwork, we deepen our understanding of its potency. This enables us to offer even more profound support and guidance to our clients on their healing journeys.

As Breathwork instructors guiding others on transformative healing journeys, it's common to prioritize our clients' well-being over our own. Over the past two years, having led countless individuals through breathwork sessions and witnessed numerous instructors pass through our Breathless Academy in Sydney, Australia, I've personally experienced periods of burnout from neglecting my own needs.

However, it's crucial to recognize and embrace this truth: just as we facilitate the healing journey for others, we must also prioritise our own self-care. The journey of self-healing and self-care is ongoing, especially as breathwork instructors. We must continue to guide others on their healing journeys while also prioritising our own well-being. Engaging in healing practices such as breathwork workshops not only replenishes our energy, continue our healing journey and also helps prevent burnout.
