Breathwork IntensiveAn intimate 4-week immersion into the fundamentals of breathwork, designed specifically to enhance your relationship to your breath.
Our next course starts October 7, 2023!
Have you been wanting to go deeper in your breathwork practice?
Do you love how breathwork makes you feel, but you are not sure how or why it’s working?
Are you a yoga teacher, breathworker, bodyworker, athlete, artist, or anything in between and want to integrate new tools for facilitation by understanding more deeply why you are doing what you are doing and how it works?
Are you wondering how your breath can be your biggest ally at this time?
The singular tangible and fundamental constant of your entire life is your breath.
It is the ongoing invisible reality, reflective of deep inner personal workings including feelings, thoughts and tendencies about your entire life.
Solidifying a consistent practice with a principle understanding of breathwork is a gift to every part of your life – including those parts outside of your physical body.
It’s a shame that breathwork is not taught in school, but in some ways, the best things in life are hidden in plain sight and hold treasures more valuable than the world’s most precious stones. Some of the most important things worth learning about aren’t taught in school anyhow.
Luckily, we can still learn breathwork now.
When you know the foundational principles, you empower yourself with an ever-present resource to ground and be an anchor for those around you.
Learn simple and powerful breathwork practices from 1 to 30 minutes that you can share with your students and clients whether in private practice, in groups or online.
Breathwork Intensive: The Fundamentals of Breathwork is a key that unlocks the door from the inside of YOU.
We believe you learn by doing first, and then understanding. This is an inside out approach, beginning with experience and then giving context about that experience so that you have a felt understanding for your own life and practice first.
This course is a compilation of technique, approach, perspective, direct experience, and applied practice from Reis Paluso, Luke Wientzen, and more.
In less than one month, you will gain a fundamental understanding of breathwork and conscious breathing practices from a 360-degree view.
Drawing from a wide range of knowledge including Tummo, Rebirthing, pranayama, and more, we have dissected each and have distilled the key elements into a unique multidisciplinary approach.
Rather than focusing on one style or method of breathing, we choose to look at the underlying principles to be able to direct physical, mental, and emotional states in the direction we want to go.
After all, every day, body, and breath is different, meaning there is no one-size-fits-all breathwork technique or method.
WHAT THIS COURSE INCLUDES
✅ Four 3-hour Saturday sessions
✅ A one-month membership to Our Breath Collective* to assist in developing a daily practice and to experience the principles in action from a variety of instructors
* If you currently have a subscription, you will not be charged for the month of the course
WHO THIS COURSE IS FOR
🌬 Anyone who values breathwork but wants to expand their knowledge and possibly even begin to share it within their circles and beyond
🧘♀️ Yoga teachers interested in understanding breath outside of classical pranayama for an added layer into their teaching
✨ Life coaches who lack experiential training in breath technique but want to use it as a tool for shifting their clients from one state to another
🧠 Psychologists who take on other’s emotions and are looking to utilize a tool simultaneously for clients and self to assist in holding a safe space
🏥 Healthcare workers who can benefit from immunity-boosting and safeguarding self-regulation practices to fortify their well-being
🏃 Athletes ranging from professional sports to your weekend warrior looking to elevate their performance
💪 Biohackers who have grown bored of hearing one perspective from one breathwork school of thought and are looking for a deeper layer of human performance
🙋 All individuals who are sick and tired of feeling dominated by fear or anxiety and are interested in taking the reigns of their physical, energetic, and mental health
What You Will Learn
In our structured 1-month plan that holds you accountable, you will gain a comprehensive understanding of breathing and know how to apply what you learn in the context of your own personal journey through life.
Together, we will break down the principles of breathing – from the physiology, chemistry, mechanics, and the various ‘knobs and levers’ for directing the breath so that you will be able to steer yourself in the direction you want to go.
Rather than relying on unwanted and unconscious patterns or tendencies, you will open up new levels of awareness and feel empowered to self-regulate.
A new appreciation for the innate capacity of the human body will expand exponentially.
So whether you are feeling anxious, stressed, tired, or even frozen, you will come away with new strategies for consciously shifting your state into more love and presence. If you are looking to level up your performance, focus, and creativity, you will have real-time tools to find flow.
And most importantly, you will take your power back.
There’s never been more information available around breathing, and how imperative respiratory health is. Coupled with the environmental urgency to boost your immune system and overall health, it is crystal clear that the time to be tuned into your breath is right now.
The skill of using your breath as a tool takes education, understanding, observation, and practice. When approaching all sides of a breath practice in a skillful way, you inherently become more primed for optimal physical and mental well-being.
We are living in a moment in time that every single individual’s character and composure is being put to a great test…and this course will offer a unique skillset which inevitably will upgrade the quality of your life, thoughts, and heart in a way that will answer this moment and beyond.
Many thanks to OBC. I am writing to say thank you for the wonderful work and guidance that all the guides and founders of OBC do. On June 2nd, I underwent an unplanned and unscheduled open heart surgery. Before this event, I religiously participated in morning breathing sessions. Without knowing it, these sessions help prepare for this event. As I was recovering during my four-day stay in the hospital and at home, I practiced breathing, and with the guidance of my daughter Lindsey, she helped me use the breathing inhale and exhale tools given to me. She guided me to understand how to engage in deep core breathing and feel the breath moving from my core to the fullness in my lunges. I am so grateful that I am a member of this collective. Thank you all.
Before I started the Breathwork Intensive, I knew that breathing was something I needed to look into for my own well-being. I had no idea how to start or which breathing style to pick. I could not have anticipated how much more aware of my breathing I would get during the course and how much I’d learn about the science behind it. I especially love that I got to know so many diverse breathing styles and not only ‘the one and only’ style. Thank you, guys.

I feel so grateful for OBC and the Breathwork Intensive! After a little over a year of doing breathwork, primarily the Wim Hof Method, I had a thirst for more. Breathwork is so powerful and feels so good, I knew I wanted to learn more, but I wasn’t really sure where to start. The Breathwork Intensive is the perfect course! It taught me multiple theories and principles of breathing and gave me a broad knowledge base to continue my journey. It was incredible to have three teachers with different but complementary styles who deeply understand the breath and its mechanics. Finding a true balance and blend of different techniques is a rare find. I highly recommend this course to anyone wanting to learn more about the breath and have an amazing experience as well. Oh, and the community within the group was a special, unexpected bonus! Thanks, OBC fam!
