I am an Oxygen Advantage Advanced Instructor and I am also a certified XPT Performance Breathing Coach.
When needed, I mix my functional breathing approaches with knowledge from my background in Qi Gong (movement in sync with breathing and energy awareness), meditation, and years of self-experimentation with health optimization tools.
I’m particularly passionate about working with clients who are seeking to improve issues I have worked on myself, especially regarding stress and anxiety regulation, increasing energy levels, boosting sports performance, enhancing mood, and improving sleep quality.
From a very young age, I have always sought human optimization paths, though at first I didn’t know what I was looking for. I literally tried dozens of approaches and most of them somehow contributed to my quest – some more, others less.
Body-centered therapies helped me connect with my body, holotropic breathing and rebirthing taught me how powerful the breath can be, almost a decade of Pathwork and Ayahuasca gave me access to my emotional and spiritual depths, Qi Gong offered me the freedom of being able to quiet down my mind at will.
Right now, it is my view that at the heart of every practice should be a solid approach to Autonomic Nervous System Regulation – and in this regard, functional breathing is king.
I found functional breathing and ANS regulation to be the missing part of my journey and, as soon as I came across this wonderful body of knowledge, I knew I wanted to take on the challenge of learning it as deeply as I could, making it the core of my work, and teaching it to other people.
