INNER RETREAT: 30-Hour Pranayama & Breathwork Teacher Training 2023 with Wendy Wyvill

22 April – 6 May, Asia Standard Tower/ Online via Zoom

Join Wendy for a 30-hr Inner Retreat where she will share the nature of Prana (breath) and how this very simple act of breathing has profound effects on our health and well-being. This unique training will combine modern-day Breathing science with ancient Pranayama practices.


Breathwork is the contemporary term for Pranayama. Pranayama in traditional terms is the practice of expanding, purifying and containing our Prana. Yogis use Pranayama as an anchor for the mind to be in the present moment, which helps tremendously with today's businesses and stress. When we are able to relax, let go of our habitual stress patterns and turn our mind towards our breath, we can down-regulate our nervous system and help with our own mental health hygiene. But becoming a functional breather before starting any Pranayama practice is key. We may all think we are breathing correctly, but actually the majority of us are not and our health is at risk.


If you are a yogi, teacher, athlete or couch potato it is essential to re-learn how to breathe in a functional way that supports our health and wellness. The primary function of breathing is to oxygenate our cells. All of our bodies' systems need oxygen to thrive but if we're not breathing correctly ,we may actually be starving our body of oxygen rather than feeding it. The key to changing our breathing habits is to first start to observe how we breathe, on and off the mat and to notice how our breath affects everything we do. Through daily practice and self-observation, we can slowly shift our breathing patterns to the way nature intended us to breathe. Then we can start to practise Pranayama from a more balanced starting point.


In this science-based training, Wendy weaves together respiratory science, functional breathing, functional movement and yoga philosophy to help her students restore their health and regain their own breathing power. This training will have lecture, Practice and home study components.

Wendy is a certified Yoga, Pranayama and Breath work instructor with over 25 years of teaching experience. Her goal is to educate yoga teachers and students to teach and practice Pranayama correctly and to use it as a tool for greater health and wellness.

In the last decade, Wendy has become increasingly interested in the power of breath. Understanding that there is more to it than what was taught in her yoga trainings, she branched out and shifted her perspective towards Breathwork studies with scientific backing – what actually happens when we breathe, how it affects our health and how the ancient practice of Pranayama works in modern times. Wendy believes that many of us are not breathing as nature intended. We are caught in upper chest stress breathing, even in our yoga practice. This over-breathing has created an imbalance in our bodies’ chemistry and our overall health. Through healthy curiosity and self-observation (or Svadhyaya), we can start to be aware of our breathing and our bodies’ movement habits, learning which serve us and which do not.

 Wendy has taught many yoga/surf, yoga Ayurveda and yoga detox retreats around Asia. She has also led many successful programmes like 40 Days to Personal Revolution, 50-hr teacher trainings, and Pranayama and meditation programmes.
