Create a Life
Join us for our Holding Space and Somatic Breath Activation Certification Program
NEXT ROUND BEGINS JUNE 2024
Have you been desiring to create an environment for your community to feel safe and supported as they receive what they need. Love is the ultimate healer. You don’t need to know everything or be anything...but yourself.
In the certification program you will learn how to:
Hold space for yourself
Create a safe, sacred space for your community
Facilitate and host retreats, circles and sacred gatherings
Develop willingness to surrender to the experience of life and embrace the unknown
Develop a deeper connection with your intuition and inner wisdom
Develop your own unique style to hold space and facilitate SBA
Facilitate the Somatic Breath Activation
Receive access to an online community of SBA certified facilitators all over the world
This training can impact your life in profound and unpredictable ways.
Are you ready to be a facilitator of transformation and healing?
Over four months, you will learn to hold a safe, sacred space for your community and to facilitate the Somatic Breath Activation technique. This program extends beyond learning the logistics and a breath technique, we truly support you in becoming an embodied space holder.
We believe to be a powerful facilitator you must wholly embody your self, which starts with doing your own inner work. So when you begin to hold space for others, you feel confident and simply pour the overflowing love from your heart. Our program is broken down into three major themes: holding space for yourself, holding space for others and holding space for the Collective. These foundations are the groundwork for magic.
Our intention with this certification is for you to connect with your highest self and support your community in remembering how perfect, unique and sacred they are. After this program, you will feel more confident in holding loving, sacred spaces and facilitating the Somatic Breath Activation to individuals, couples and groups.

When does the certification program start?Next round of Certification begins September 26, 2023
Are calls recorded?Yes, all calls are recorded! You are expected to catch up on each call so you stay up-to-date with the material. There are two calls that are mandatory to be live for certification and deeply support your ability to hold space!
How many live calls and what times will they be held?There will be 14 calls, most of them hour-long calls that have a replay available if you can not attend live, the timing will be determined and set at the beginning of the container. There are two calls that are mandatory to attend for certification since this is a group cohort experience- November 19 & December 10 from 10am - 4pm MST.
What might I experience physically inside SBA?Below are some, not all of the physical symptoms you may experience. Physical sensations are normal, your job is to observe and allow. Temperature Fluctuations - it is normal for your body temperature to fluctuate from hot to cold as fear/stuck energy is being released from the body Body Stiffening/Cramping - The body can tighten and contract in places that commonly hold blockages - the mouth and lips, the hands and arms, the legs and feet, the hips. (tetany, below) Lightheadedness/Heavy in the body, like feeling stuck to the floor. Tingling - all over or in certain areas, depending on where energy is moving. Movement - body can shake, vibrate, body moving the energy. Body guides you to move around. Listen to your body! Releases - you may feel the need to release energy through crying, growling, grunting, primal noises, smiling, laughing, yelling, screaming. Emotions - the process is about releasing the emotions that are on the surface. With the SBA breathwork practice, we are getting under the fears and anxieties that are stuck so this may get uncomfortable. If things are feeling too intense, look at possible resistances and soften the breath if things truly start to feel too uncomfortable. You are the ultimate guide of every session and your life, ALWAYS!. Muscle tightness - energy can collect in the body and create a traffic jam. The area may become knotted, tight, or sore. This usually passes within a few minutes of returning to a relaxed breath. (different sensation than tetany)
What might I experience emotionally inside SBA?Tapping into emotions, energy moving and being released, breakthroughs, revelation, exploration, inner wisdom, ancestral access, divine guidance, spirit guide visits, opening to the unknown.
Is this right for me if I don't want to be a facilitator?This certification is not only for those that want to hold space, this supports your own deepening of holding space for yourself profoundly. This program also supports you holding space for your friends and family and embodying being a safe space for others.
Are there payment plans available?Yes! You can do four payments at $575. There is also a $14.38/payment website service fee. All of the payments must be completed by November 17.
What are the requirements for certification?There will be two calls mid-container that will be required to attend by everyone for certification, no exceptions- November 19 and December 10, from 10am to 4pm MST. If you do not attend, you can not be certified. This is a sacred group experience and it is important that you dedicate weekly time to make the call live or catch the recording as close to the call as possible, so you are in the same place as the entire group for our live calls. The last requirement for certification is the final submissions completed within the deadline given.
What is the benefit of being certified?Becoming certified as a breathwork facilitator allows you to hold space in many different areas in different capacities. From holding breathwork experiences at your local yoga studio to hosting your own retreats, a certification shows that you have done the work to create a safe space for future participants. After you are certified, you join a group space reserved only for those certified in Somatic Breath Activation. This space continues to give education and community to deepen your ability as a space holder. You also have the option to submit your information to be featured as a SBA facilitator on this website, so others around the world can find you.
"This program gave me so much confidence. I knew when I experienced this technique at one of Chelseas retreats I had to add it to my tool belt for my clients. I have always wanted to hold women's circles but felt I needed something to really add value and this is it. Seeing the dynamics of holding a 1:1 space to a group has helped me feel more confident. Something that surprised me was connecting with my intuition more. In the past I would overthink and want something to be perfect. Which had me not take action often. After this program I have been able to fully surrender and trust whatever comes to me in the moment and trust that it is exactly what is needed for the space. I am so stoked to bring this to my clients and future clients."
