In 2016, at the ABA Committee Inspiration and Planning weekend I was sitting with Cindy Aulby (current president) and Mirabai Rose (past president), Robyn Fernance (then membership officer) and the rest of the committee at the time talking about the depth of the Breathwork lineage in Australia. We had just worked out that Mirabai and I could have the same “grandparents”. My lineage belongs to the Breathwork Family Tree that started with Ahrara Bhakti who trained Michael Adamedes who teed up with Quentin Watts to train Robyn Fernance who was my trainer.
Mirabai’s lineage also started with Ahrara Bhakti who, as stated above, trained Michael Adamedes who teed up with Quentin Watts to train Denise Burgess. Denise teed up with Michael and Quentin to train Jonine Lee-Gabay who in turn trained Mirabai. During her training, Mirabai was also supervised by Karen Daniel – Ahrara’s daughter, through whom Mirabai says: “I feel the lineage through her so strongly, its an honour to work with her.”
A special and massive vote of gratitude and appreciation to the ABA Training Endorsement Subcommittee team for their work over the past two years. The team made up of Cindy Aulby, Robyn Fernance and Ann Harrison put together the process to have individual Breathwork Schools Breathwork Trainings endorsed by the ABA.
Breathwork Practitioner Training has a minimum of 450 hours of theory and experiential work to ensure a sound standard is maintained to enable quality care of Breathwork Clients. This Standard was developed over years of working with the Elders of the Breathwork community in Australia and follows the requirements of the International Breathwork Foundation and Global Professional Breathwork Alliance for Practitioner Training in Conscious Connected Breathwork (CCB).
In 2018, 12 ABA Breathwork trainers, from 10 Breathwork schools/colleges within Australia, made application to have their practitioner trainings endorsed, from which the ABA endorsed all 10 Australian Breathwork Practitioner Trainings
