MyB Academy was a game-changer, providing in-depth theory and hands-on teaching experience

"I am thrilled to express my gratitude for Master Your Breath Academy, a vital extension of the Master Your Breath course. While MYB taught me the intricacies of breathwork, the Academy was a game-changer, providing in-depth theory and hands-on teaching experience. It enabled me to seamlessly transition from personal practice to confidently teaching breathwork to individuals and groups.

MYB Academy addressed my challenge of developing a teaching strategy and offering a structured approach to creating diverse courses. The live workshops were a highlight, fostering a dynamic learning environment, and the online sessions, while virtual, provided practical, hands-on activities that immediately applied the learned concepts.

What sets Master Your Breath Academy apart is its commitment to bridging theory and practice, ensuring participants not only understand but can confidently teach breathwork. This transformative experience has made me not only a master of my breath but a skilled and confident teacher. Thank you, Master Your Breath Academy, for enriching my teaching practice beyond measure."


With the MyB Approach you have a tool to support each of your clients to feel better and reach their goals faster through the power of breathing

Breathing is the foundation for every process in the body and transformation on all levels. How we breathe deeply affects our physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual experiences. 

By improving our breathing patterns, we can learn to create a stable yet fluid spine, a stable core, and optimize our metabolism, hormones, strength, mobility, endurance, and condition. Furthermore, conscious breathing instantly creates awareness, clarity of mind and a connection to ourselves and our emotions. 

Therefore breathing is the foundational principle that lies behind any transformation, integration, release, and progress of ourselves, our students and clients - or can prevent them if breathing is not properly addressed. 

The field of Breathing has been growing steadily over the past years in its relevance across the fields of yoga, meditation, coaching, business, fitness, and health. Yet, it is still in the early stages with a constantly increasing demand for skilled teachers and coaches who know how to apply optimal principles of breathing to support people from all walks of life.

To work successfully as a breathing and pranayama coach, a combination of knowledge, experience and skill, combined with a simple, easy-to-use, step-by-step system is required. 

Instead of mindlessly applying the same breathing technique with every client, as a MyB Academy graduate you have a broad & deep understanding of the breath and are equipped with an clear step-by-step system, an internal map that allows you to assess your client, offer a perfect solution in your unique way and based on the individual needs of your clients.

The entire MyB Academy program sets you up for success by:

Practically experiencing the MyB principles, techniques, and protocols as a student and further exploring & growing your self-practice

Throughout the course, consistently practicing & improving your teaching skills (with valuable feedback from trainers & fellow trainees)

Acquiring a very practical understanding of the anatomy, mechanics & physiology of breathing and how this affects us on all levels

Gaining in-depth knowledge of the underlying science of breathing & a wide perspective on different schools of pranayama & breathwork

Understanding how the MyB principles of optimal breathing are applied to various fields (sports, therapy, well-being, coaching, etc.)

Mentoring your own clients through a 4-week program so you immediately apply and experience your new skills

Having consistent support, expert-guidance, and the opportunity to ask all your questions during live-calls and via email.

Getting inspiration and a step-by-step process to apply the learnings of the course immediately in your work

Being part of a motivated group of fellow MyB Instructors and trainees

Feeling confident and ready to implement instead of just collecting another diploma 

overcame my fears and built confidence to teach

"Through the  MyB Academy I was able to deepen my understanding and knowledge about breathing. Before enrolling, I couldn't imagine leading breathing classes. But with the vast knowledge I got and the many practical exercises that we did I now feel confident and experienced enough to guide others on their path to a more conscious breath.

I really enjoyed the course and it was fantastic that I could always join online. And even though I always joined through ZOOM, I never felt like something was missing and it was always easy to follow along.

I loved that it was a small group with a family-like atmosphere. We could build skill and knowledge by teaching each other and also presenting certain breathing topics to the group. This made me totally conquer any fear of talking to other people.

Now, that I have overcome the first obstacle of teaching classes - to groups as well as individuals, I am gaining more confidence every time I teach. While at the beginning I planned each class in detail, I am now getting to the point of using all the techniques more freely and intuitively. 

With the end of the course, I am now ready to creating my breathing offers and programs."
