“I feel as though the trajectory of my life changed with that one session. Thank you, Joseph.”

Breathwork is a powerful healing practice with ancient roots. Simply through altering the pattern of our breathing in a specific way, we can access expansive states of awareness, release stored trauma and tension in the body, experience profound emotional healing, gain deeper insight into ourselves and our inner world, and connect to the source of life-energy deep within us. See Sarah’s testimonial for one example of what breathwork can accomplish:
Breathwork utilizes the principle of influencing consciousness through the breath. By continuously following a specific breathing technique, we are able to alter our state of consciousness, and in doing so, access deeper levels of our mind. This allows us to shift our perspective from our habitual patterns of consciousness and allows deep rooted emotions to come to the surface of our awareness where we can acknowledge them, accept them, and release them through the breath.
The particular style of breathwork that I share also involves a physical movement of the body that mimics the body’s natural subconscious response to traumatic experiences, grief, and fear. In following this pattern of breath, one stimulates the stored cellular memories of experiences that are associated with these emotions, allowing for their release in a process known as catharsis, defined as: the process of purging or releasing, and thereby providing relief from, strong or repressed emotions.
I am thankful to have had the privilege of studying Breathwork with Michael Brian Baker, the founder of The Breath Center. I began training with Michael in 2017, and he has taught me what, in my experience, has been the most effective form of Breathwork that I have ever practiced. Not only is it powerful and effective, it is simple and gentle at the same time, offering an excellent balance of expansion and grace. Through my training with Michael, I have been certified to share this practice with others, and to have the honor of helping others on their personal journey of healing and spiritual-growth.
Since my training, I have been sharing this healing technique with as many people as I can. The healing that it continues to offer so effectively and consistently has inspired me to share it to whoever feels the call to heal their emotional wounds, and to reconnect to their true Self. I love connecting one-on-one and helping people with their healing journey, and I have now guided hundreds of individuals through private sessions and public workshops, and I continue to do so, learning and growing as a student of this miraculous art.
In addition to my breathwork training with Michael, I spent several months in Rishikesh, India, studying Yoga and Pranayama — yogic breathing exercises — and I have incorporated this knowledge into my practice as well.
“Wow! I can't believe how powerful this experience was. It felt like I went on a shamanic journey into my self and it brought up things I didn't even know were there. I realized that I was holding onto so much! and even better it helped me let it go! I feel so light and peaceful now, and I am beyond thankful for Joseph for facilitating this work.”

"I have been following Joseph's work on Instagram for years and recently experienced a breathwork session with him over Skype. Upon connecting, I was put at ease with the gentle, kind, positive way he has about him. He seems to have the perfect blend of old wisdom and a youthful spirit that makes his work so relatable and calming.
Our breathwork session brought me deeper into myself than I have ever been before. I regularly practice yoga, meditation, sound healing, acupuncture, and energy healing. None of those modalities brought me the awareness of self that breathwork accomplished. I felt lighter, present in my body, and more open and aware than ever!
I am so happy to have connected with Joseph and I look forward to adding regular breathwork sessions to my healing journey. Much love and many thanks!"

“When I answered the skype call with Joseph I could feel his incredible energy and welcoming spirit immediately. He radiates peace and I knew that I was in good hands. Joseph exudes patience, presence and understanding with a gentle warmth that resonates with the heart. He gave me a full description of what the breath work experience would be like, what to expect, and told me to remember to surrender to the process; to be a participant as well as a witness to the experience. He assured me that my intention for healing and releasing trapped emotions would be met, but it required trust on my part. He gave me an informative description on the type of practice we would be doing and made sure that I was breathing correctly before we started.
When the first round began, I could feel my soul jumping up and down in joy and excitement for the healing work that I was doing. Intense emotions came up to the surface in the other rounds as my body was collecting energy I had never felt before. Joseph always said the right things to bring me back to my intention and back to the trust. I connected with my higher self in those difficult moments, and I felt the immense love from the oneness that made me remember that I Am. Every cell in my body was bursting with gratitude and I truly didn’t want the session to end. I felt the life force energy of my being fill my body and cleanse it of everything I’ve been holding on to. This sacred experience was nothing short of a blessing, and I truly can’t wait for my next session. Joseph is a true healer and guide, and anyone who feels the call from spirit to work with him should. Infinite love and gratitude. Thank you, brother!”
-Danica Paulos, New York City
"Being my first experience with breathwork, I can say that I am astounded by the transformational effect it had in my overall state of mind, no doubt it was one of the most intense experiences I have had.
Having passed two days I can feel a difference in the background noise of my mind, having now a bigger sense of calm and equanimity. It helped me realize things that I have in my consciousness that do not serve me and how to align myself to no longer be attached to them, it also helped me to be more aware of the pure energy that regulates our entire sense of being facing it and feeling it in my body. It was an experience beyond words.
Joseph was an excellent guide throughout the whole session, transmitting serenity and kindness in every moment with his words and his presence. I feel very grateful to him.
I would recommend anyone who has the intention to grow to experiment with this practice because it is the experience itself that can help us transform the information into knowledge."
—Nicolas Betbese, Argentina
"Wow! I can't believe how powerful this experience was. I never would have thought that through my breath I could experience an almost psychedelic state. It felt like I went on a shamanic journey into my self and it brought up things I didn't even know were there. I realized that I was holding onto so much! and even better it helped me let it go! I feel so light and peaceful now, and I am beyond thankful for Joseph for facilitating this work. If this calls to you, I recommend giving it a try! The experience is like nothing else."
—Charlotte Brown, North Carolina
"The best way to describe my breathwork session with Joseph is - transformational. I’ve never experienced anything like it. On a physical level, I experienced a euphoric, healing energy that permeated my entire body during the session and for several days afterwards. On an emotional level, I found the session unearthed so many emotions, and I was able to move through the process of cleansing my energy and replacing negative, dark energy with postiive, bright energy that has sustained itself since my session. I can’t recommend Joseph highly enough as a practitioner and guide on this mindfulness journey. This is a healing, transformative experience that will literally change your life.”
—Adam H., Charlottesville, VA
“Joseph was a kind, receptive teacher with much wisdom. His energy provided a space of comfort throughout the whole session. Personally, I had never experienced anything like this practice of breathwork, and have much gratitude for having gotten a chance to experience it. It was a simple process, yet one that proved to be very, very powerful. My mind and body reacted to the technique in a very peculiar way, and at the end of the session I felt a strong sense of peace and of clarity. Definitely 5/5 Stars!”
—Antonio C., United States
"I had my first breathwork session ever and I’m stoked that Joseph was the facilitator! Being relatively new to breathwork I was honestly a bit apprehensive but Joseph was very calm and guided me through the session in a kind and gentle way. The result of the session provided me with an abundance of energy combined with a tranquil peacefulness."
—Brenden Todd, Australia
“Don’t be fooled by his youth , this is an old soul . The breathwork session was transformational and powerful. Joseph was kind and patient. Took the time to explain and answer all our questions, the technique itself is simple but potent. We highly recommend a session with Joseph if you want to remove energetic blockages that limit your potential. We are very grateful for the amazing session and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him, hopefully we get to do another session with him.”
-Pablo Rozas, New Zealand
“Such a deeply Divine and powerful healing experience I had during my Breathwork session with Joseph.
I went into the session with the intention to release some fears around vulnerability, but was shown and gifted so much more than that! If I needed any clarification on my spiritual journey, I sure got it!
I now feel more peaceful and freer in my body, and clearer on my path ahead. I realize that, actually, vulnerability was where my power was all along!
I have so much love and gratitude for Joseph, who held my space so beautifully with love and gentle wisdom. Thank you xo”
-Samantha Summerfield, Australia
“There are not words in this planet to describe my first experience with Breathwork and Joseph. The session was very intense and I could feel that I released a lot of baggage that was holding me back, I feel fresher, healthier and happier! I am a very private person and at the beginning it was a bit awkward that he was watching me through Skype, but at some point Joseph mention the words: "commit to your breath" and that meant much more to me because it was more a reminder for me to commit to getting rid of feelings that were already bothering me and that I couldn't control, plus that I have tried from doctors to yoga and nothing had worked out at a really deep level. I still don't know if I am completely free, but I can happily say that this time feels different and amazing! thank you very much Joseph.”
“When I signed up for a breathwork session I didn’t know what to expect. I'd assumed the term referred to the common breathing exercises practiced during yoga. Before the session began Joseph listed a few things to be aware of, mentioning things like "whatever feelings you come across try to stay with the breathing tempo" and "whatever emotions come to the surface just allow them to be" I thought to myself "what the heck did I get myself into?"
What followed was an hour of the absolute surreal physical and mental experience of my life! Once I proclaimed my intention and settled deeper into the breathing tempo I began feeling 'tension' in my lips/chin area. The 'tension' then spread to my hands and finally my knees. I was literally vibrating! I was rooted to the spot, barely able to move. My hands were floating above my stomach (I was lying down with my hands resting on my tummy). I had to uncover my eyes to be sure of what I was feeling and behold! My hands were actually floating! It was chi I was feeling and I never felt it before. I'd heard of monks and yogis harnessing their chi but I wasn't aware that I also could do it. My mind was blown.
I wondered why these three areas of my body were affected so intensely. Joseph later explained the chi was moving out stagnant energy and those areas are where my body stored it most. He then explained what each area meant. He was just amazing at coaching me through the session, particularly as someone who was very new to the practice. His guidance was compassionate and soothing. I am already planning my next session. I feel as though the trajectory of my life changed with that one session. Thank you, Joseph.”
