Redefining healing, Inspiring heart-centered communities
We redefine healing through innovative, person-centered breathwork education, fostering empowered and heart-centered communities guided by experienced breath coaches. Join us in the journey of transforming lives, One Breath at a time.
Because it works. Breathwork gets to the root of your problems in a way that nothing else can.
Because breathwork gets to the root of your problems, your life gets better. You find it easier to let go of your bad habits, and to create healthy ones you’ve struggled with sticking to in the past.
We offer the best breathwork training from certified facilitators to help you feel a deeper connection within yourself and with others, see things from a new perspective, feel happier and more self-loving.

We believe -
At One Breath Institute, we create an environment that supports healing and wholeness. We provide support and a community in which you will feel heard, seen, valued and held. We invest in you, and, if you allow us to, walk with you every step of the way as you move through our programs in order to ensure your success. We keep our class sizes small so we can connect with you as an individual and learn how we can best support you, what you need, and how you learn. Our focus is on you, the individual, as you develop your skills as a Breathwork Facilitator, deepen your knowledge and create a sustainable business as a Breathwork Practitioner. At OBI, you are not just a number... this is just one way we stand out from other breathwork schools.

Devoted to Your Growth
We are more than a training center. We are a worldwide community devoted to transformative healing, personal and professional growth.
The 4 Pillars of our Breathwork School
We provide a safe haven for people to connect and heal in this crazy world.
We have become a global movement, and appreciate the diversity of our community.
A big part of our mission is helping you to accept, trust and love yourself — so you feel empowered to be yourself and live authentically. You are always welcome and encouraged to show up exactly as you are — no need to hide or change anything about yourself.
Our society is so permeated with trauma that we have normalized things which are not normal or OK. At OBI, we relate our society to a fishbowl--as if we're all swimming in a 'fishbowl of trauma'. Fish swim in polluted water, doing the best they can. If the water were clean, the fish would feel better, be healthier, and be more likely to thrive. The same can be said for humans, where trauma is the pollution.
Those who choose to consciously heal and transform their trauma are 'clearing the water' for others--helping to change the world, in our case through somatic breathwork!
Breathe Life into Your Being: Embrace breathwork as an Embodied Spiritual Practice.
Breathwork is more than a practice; it's an embodied and spiritual journey. To reach self-actualization, integrate all aspects of yourself—physical, mental, energetic, and spiritual.
OBI teaches the history of holotropic breathwork therapy and rebirthing breathwork, and about how our approach is different. Introspective Breathwork™ Therapy is less about controlling the breath and more about allowing it to “breathe you”, guiding a transformative process and allowing you to embody your truest self and realize your full potential.
Knowledge & Support
Our students tell us they're amazed at how much support they receive from us during and after their breathwork training.
We care about you and want you to succeed as a professional breathwork teacher, which is why our program is 2 years. We don’t stop at the minimum training, certifying you as a Breathwork Facilitator only (left to start a business without any mentorship or further guidance). We dedicate a second year of support focused on your professional development from a business perspective. You will receive training and coaching as you discover your niche clientele and earn your advanced certification as a Breathwork Practitioner.
Our school received praise from the GPBA on how comprehensive our training is.
We walk with you every step of the way as you move through our Breathwork Practitioner training!
