Nothing is more important than our breath.

The breath is our most sacred gift: it brings us life. Without the breath, we cannot have the human experience. I used to joke that people paid me the big bucks to remind them to the one thing they came into the world naturally knowing.

The breath is directly correlated to the health and well being of the mind, body, and spirit. Our breath patterns mimic the patterns in our life. The breath can be reprogramed to healthy + new patterns. This reprogramming brings profound healing to the mind, body, emotions, heart, and soul. It helps us to change to be more balanced.There is a serious link between breath work + trauma. Think of the times life took your breath away or you cried so hard you couldn't breath. 

Breathing exercises help us heal. They help us take back our breath. They help us appreciate the gift of our breath, the gift that is life. 

This training focuses on helping you find your breath again maybe for the first time ever or if you have a connection to your breath, to go deeper. The coursework focuses on ancient breathing exercises that have been helping people for over 5,000 + years, along with just a few modern, new styles of breathing. 


I consider the breath medicine for our entire being. This medicine is only around for two reasons: (1) it has proven to work and stood the test of time (2) it has been passed down and along by teachers for lifetime(s).


Due to the Covid 19 pandemic, this special training is need more than ever. It will focus on you helping you find your breath and then prepare you to help others do the same.


The breath work coursework is highly comprehensive and transformative as you will experience and learn various breathing exercises  taken from various healing schools dating as far back as 5,000+ years old along with new modern day breathing practices. You will learn how to do these exercises properely and then create a regular breath practice. From here, you will be equipped to pass  on these teachings to others. The focus of this course is self healing and self discovery through the outlet of breath. The goal is  for you to gain a deep connection with your own breath and understand these exercises, for from only here will you be able to hep others. 

The course covers:


  • understanding the proper way to breath

  • learning and deeply studying 8 ancient  + modern breathing exercises

  • hygiene for proper breathing

  • creative writing with the breath

You will keep a daily breath log to create a sustainable breathing practice. You will also be paired up with a "breath partner" to study the breath each week.

Aside from the official certification, deep healing, and wisdom of the breath, along with becoming a member of a breath family, you will get a few "breath presents" tangible gifts that will aid you in creating and up-keeping a healthy breath work routine of your own that will mailed to you free of cost!
