Our Kaupapa:

Elevare was created by Shannon Rose after facilitating breathwork for several years and seeing the profound effect it was having on not only individuals, but whole whanau units, business’ and communities. She saw people heal from long standing fertility issues, to addictions, depression and even suicide. People came in lost in life, and were able to find themselves in a space of three hours. 


Shannon has been requested to hold this training countlessly over the years, and after spending years refining her craft, gaining greater training and growing both personally and professionally, her Tupuna let her now it was time. 


The Elevare mission is to adequately train facilitators to feel confident, educated and grounded in integrity, to offer breathwork to their community. There is a ripple effect of healing happening across the world, and breathwork has the potential to change not only the lives of millions of individuals, but generate huge change globally.


Elevare was founded in New Zealand, and has a strong link with Shannon's whakapapa as taha Maori. Shannon's vision is to see this work spread globally, sharing the profound wisdom and transformation available. 


"We are here to generate a ripple effect of breath across the globe."


Where 'Elevare' Comes from:


Elevare to elevate, uplift or raise. Latin; (“to raise, lift up”), from e (“out”) + levare (“to make light, to lift”), from levis (“light”).

As we rise up with the waves of the breath, we elevate the body, mind, heart & soul. We elevate the community, we elevate the world.

We work within the model of Te Whare Tapa Whā, Maori Health, that to achieve holistic health, all four cornerstones need to be honoured, body (tinana), mind & heart (hinengaro), soul (wairua) and family / community (whanau).

Through working with this we acknowledge that healing is not an isolated experience, it must includes all facets that make up our holistic health. 

To make light again, the human experience. 

To build resilience, in life's challenges. 

And to create connection, to the wider whanau network. 


Shannon has had the privilege of being part of the early wave of Breathwork in Aotearoa, and has seen many renditions of the work. It is an honour to offer this kaupapa, to share the skill and experience with other willing facilitators who wish to continue this ripple effect of breath.
