Overview

The BREATHE Initiative is an international group of devoted breath practitioners, scientists/researchers, doctors and wellness thought leaders dedicated to sharing the various modalities and the science of BREATH for wellbeing.

BREATH is noted as a top trend by GWI for 2021 and is generating more buzz every day because it equalizes wellbeing; it’s free and accessible to ALL! With global stress/anxiety at record-setting levels, BREATH practices are being taken much more seriously as a science-based solution to what ails us. BREATH is both a preventative and healing tool that is truly a human superpower—albeit very underutilized. It is our intention for this Initiative to bring a broader awareness to BREATH and empower people to tap into the nourishing and healing power that is within all of us. We have the power to override our nervous system and create our optimal mindset and energy with mindful breath in small moments. BREATH is a sustainable human resource for self-care, mental fitness, nourishment and overall wellbeing. We’ll engage in conversations and experiences that shine a light on how up-to-the-minute science connects the dots of an ancient practice to our modern lifestyle.
