Our program is led by Jeff Sorensen, a renowned breathwork expert with over 15 years of experience in holistic practices.

Common Questions:

If you are a super busy person, then this course is even MORE important for you! Connecting to your breath and body allows you to move through life in a more fluid and effective way. Respond to situations rather than react. Be more decisive as you are more effectively able to tap into your intuition and “gut feelings.” Using the power of your breath to manage your internal state allows you to more easily “turn on” when you need to be productive and “turn off” when it is time to relax. In short, when you are harnessing the power of your breath, you are a far more effective, efficient and content human being.

It benefits both seasoned professionals and those without prior experience, as it offers foundational knowledge alongside advanced techniques, making it accessible and enriching for everyone committed to personal and professional growth.

This balanced approach ensures comprehensive training that emphasizes personal embodiment and authentic, heart-led facilitation.

The Breathwork Blueprint complements the leadership training by offering an in-depth exploration of breathwork beyond traditional techniques.
