Why We Created This Course

There has been an explosion in the number of people practising breathwork in the Western world. As wonderful as this has been to see, there has also been a growing amount of misinformation and malpractice that has come with it too. The intention of this course is to cut through that and provide you with a proper intellectual and experiential deep dive into all aspects of breathwork and the many different ways in which one is able to use their breath to improve aspects of their emotional, physical and spiritual health.

The course combines everything that James and Jamie have learnt over years of practicing and teaching breathwork and is unrivalled in two of the leading breathwork experts coming together to share their knowledge.

Questions You Might Have

Explore the world of breathwork with James + Jamie

How long will I have access to the course content?

You will have lifetime access so you will be able to visit (and revisit) all of the lessons, protocols + exercises so to continue to incorporate them into your daily life. You will also be able to join any future cohort for half price.

Is there a refund policy?

Can I get reimbursed by my employer? 

Good idea! Lots of companies today will reimburse tuition for personal development and training that increases wellbeing and reduces the chances of burnout. You can use this proposal template to make the cause to your team for investing in this course.

Is this course a teacher training?

No, this is a consumer facing course. As much as there will be skills, practices and teachings that one will be able to integrate into an existing clinical practice, Breathwork Mastery is not a teacher training and as such there will be no certification given.

Are there any contraindications?
