During physical yoga practice and exercise, the breath supports movement and balance. Off the mat, it stays with you, breath by breath, day by day, impacting, informing, and inspiring your experience… and your life.

But without an understanding of how the breath works, you can’t fully access its myriad benefits. It’s challenging to reach your full potential. And it’s easy to develop unhealthy habits that increase risk of injury, for you and your students.

Who is this course for?

Yoga teachers, Pilates instructors and personal trainers all cue the breath. We instruct our students how to inhale and exhale, often with no clear understanding of a key idea — the impact external breathing has on the biochemistry, the chemical reactions inside your body.

What’s more, to get the most from any physical practice, you must learn to use the supporting muscles. Muscles you can’t see.

You must understand that the core is much more than just the abs.

And that you can’t strengthen dysfunction.

If you want to take your practice, or teaching to the next level and explore the scientific power of breath in yoga and physical movement…

If you want to optimize the benefits of your practice or workout…

If you’ve ever been told to “take a big, deep breath into your belly…” This course is for you!

Oxygen Advantage Certification

What is special about this course?

Most Breathing for Yoga courses until now were mostly theoretical. The course running this October will include 2 live classes and give participants the opportunity to instruct others!

Big emphasis will be given to the effect hormones play in breathing & how women can adapt their breathing practice according to the female reproductive hormonal cycle.

I developed the Breathing for Yoga course in April 2021, adapting Buteyko Method’s principles in yoga and developing a synergistic system between the two. The background of all the participants until now has been impressive which makes this course very special.

Who is your teacher?

After servicing the Greek Special Forces as a paratrooper for 1 year, trading currency derivatives in New York and then London for 7 years, and picking up a couple of other dopamine-driven hobbies along the way; in 2009 I began studying yoga & nutritional therapy. During my time in the army and banking, I noticed how detrimental, operating long-term in a highly competitive environment can be. Stress is not a problem provided you know how to cope with it.

My 1st step in Breathwork started in 2016 when I got certified as a WHM instructor. As I still didn’t have all the answers I was looking for, in 2017 I start studying with Patrick McKeown. Since 2018 I have been delivering the breathing modules in yoga & pilates teacher training & facilitating workshops in Uk and internationally.

My vision:

Breathwork will become a big part of the medical, criminal rehabilitation & educational system.
