What People are Saying..

 

"Ground breaking! Effortlessly takes us into the very ground of our own being. Hands down, the finest Pranayama 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."

- Thomas Hedlund
MFT, Clinical Supervisor for John Bradshaw Events
 

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!!

- Candace Sauve
Sr. Leader at Sales Force
 

Training with The Breath Center is where you learn how to reconnect with yourself. I thought I was there to just learn how to facilitate breathwork.... however, I left learning so much more about myself, dove deeper into my knowledge, and learned to trust my intuition more. Michael and Audri hold a space where we can all be vulnerable and feel accepted. There is 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!

- Claudia Moreno 
Founder of Rising with Grace
 

"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. Learning  about esoteric origins of humanity & collective karma, revealed areas which are currently ripe for healing."
