Personal Healing

The program naturally tailors to each individual’s unique journey and becomes an important part of the whole. It is designed to orchestrate epiphany for physical and emotional wellbeing, trauma healing, inner peace, and financial sustainability.

Connect the Dots

An all-encompassing course that covers multicultural approaches to the human experience and spiritual awakening. Integration of teachings from ancient civilizations, mythological and archeological research of the origins of humanity, shamanism, sacred plant medicine, metaphysical gifts, scientific research, and yogic philosophy.

Experience Focused

True wisdom begins with personal experience. For this reason, the training incorporates unit assessment quizzes, experiential breath practices, regular check ins for all participants. Time for individual breath practices encouraged in the program to cultivate the embodiment of awakening teachings.

Whether you're seeking personal transformation, answers to big questions, or further education as a yoga and healing arts practitioner (or all of the above), this is IT!

"Ground breaking! Effortlessly takes us into the very ground of our own being. Hands down, the finest Awakening Program that I know of. In my forty years as a licensed therapist, I have been privileged to work with and know many great teachers. Michael has touched thousands in his workshops and trainings. He is one of the few that I can say I trust implicitly."

Life-changing! This breath practice is unlike any other spiritual practice of meditation, chanting, plant medicine etc. It WAKES you up in every way and will shift you towards your highest potential. We did deeply intensive pranayama sessions, as well as all the analytical background from Western Science, Eastern philosophy, and all the ancient mysticism. Highly recommend!!

Founder of Rising with Grace

The Breath Center is a location where you learn how to reconnect with yourself. I thought I was there to just learn how to facilitate breath work.... however, I left learning so much more about myself, dove deeper in my knowing and learned to trust my intuition more. Michael and Audri hold a space where we can all be vulnerable and feel accepted. There so much knowledge Michael shared with us about different breathing methods, yoga, life source. I highly recommend The Breath Center to anyone wanting to dive deeper, find their wholeness, and be educated!

- Justin Taylor 
Coding Technician, Founder Nada Brahma Vibrational Arts

I am forever transformed, filled with gratitude and humility for the depth of the knowledge that has been passed down! Training with The Breath Center has had a profound impact on my personal life and the lives of my clients. I was opened to a myriad of topics explored through the prism of the breath, from classical pranayama to contemporary mysticism and body language. The final levels, grounded in the esoteric origins of humanity and collective karma, revealed the areas which are currently ripe for healing.
