Kayana Breathwork Counseling Training – 3 levels

Now in Cyprus & soon in London

Kayana Breathwork Counseling Training is a powerful approach to:

  • Self-exploration and healing that integrates insights from various depths of psychologies & philosophies.
  • Integrating the internal and the external world, as essential to a full understanding of the whole person, in a Transpersonal way, which includes the spiritual aspects of human nature, as well as the emotional, mental, physical and social aspects.
  • Assuming and living aspects of our life since early age to now.

The name KAYANA was created by Viola Edward & Michael de Glanville from different languages, in 2003, when they decided to marry and move to Cyprus. To them it means “our place of life energy”.

Kayana BreathWork Counseling was inspired in Rebirthing,it is a methodology for personal growth, emotional and spiritual awakening. It is a holistic process involving Conscious Breathing, Thought and Action that embraces the individual on all levels and dimensions. By bringing conscious energy to our thoughts and the way we breathe, it is possible to retrieve subconscious memories of primeval life situations. Some of these memories get stacked and condensed with the repetition of negative patterns creating constant emotions like fear, sadness, anger or resentment.

The Conscious Breathing –Thinking-Behaving therapy, activates the natural inner healing process of the individual’s psyche, bringing him or her a particular set of internal experiences. With the inner healing intelligence guiding the process in the breathwork session, the quality and content brought forth is unique to each person and for that particular time and place. It transforms and balances the limiting behaviour patterns, tuning the inner ear in to the spiritual answers that convey the knowledge that is there to be gained from life’s experiences.

What is a Breathwork Counseling Session? An initial cycle consists of ten sessions with a professional Breathworker, who will facilitate the creation of an emotionally safe environment. During these initial “breathwork” sessions, an in-depth transformation enables the client, (the one who is breathing during the sessions) to become more aware of curtain situations or events as described above and integrate them into their life as a learning experience. After this first cycle, the breathing technique can then be practiced safely and independently while the client also continues the in-depth process with the professional Breathworker. Through the steps of the process, non-desirable patterns of behaviour are dispelled and we cease to behave as a victim. Understanding and enjoyment can then replace the negative patterns that have limited the development of the full potential of our mind and body.

A Breathwork Counseling session is a safe, effective, natural technique which connects us with our true essence, the source of our inner vigour is a holistic process involving Conscious breathing, thought and action that embraces the individual on all levels. It supplies the energy and power needed to transform ourselves.

Through Kayana Breathwork sessions, holistic balance returns, heats open to receive contentment and fulfilment enhancing celebration of life.

This Saturday was a very special day for me. Learning has been an integral part of my life, like food or needing to take a shower. It's a continuing state, nevertheless I feel that I climbed up another step by receiving my Kayana Breathwork-Coarch Certificate. One of those big chapters like my Bachelor, Master, having my children, or co-founding the NGO Birth Forward - Cyprus, I am hoping that Breathwork-Coaching will become a similar integral part of my life

A year ago I went on this journey of becoming a breathwork-coach, complimenting my formal academic education as an adult educator specialised in (intercultural) communication and educational media with a physical method of self-development called Conscious Connected Breathing - Breathwork, that works in combination with coaching on a very deep personal level. It not only transformed me personally, but I also feel it polished my strength in enabling people in learning and progressing.

I remember one of my professors once asking us to draw how we see learning and for me it was an adventure park with lot's of fun and joy and of course lot's of people. (Maybe a bit over optimistic, since it can be painful and hard too ;-) . ) One thing is sure for me learning is always very strongly connected with people and relationships, so I want to express my love and deepest gratitude to my amazing, very diverse trainers Viola Edward De Glanville, Layla Edward and Michael de Glanville and all my fellow trainees that I had the honour to learn from and with. Thank you as well to the all those people participating in our open breathwork groups in Limassol Vedanta Yoga Centre that I could observe and assist during my 200 hours training
