Episode details

Mike is a breathwork coach from the UK. After 15 years in the corporate world, Mike decided to leave to teach breathwork full time.

Mike has trained with many of the world’s leading breathwork innovators; such as Wim Hof, James Nestor and Patrick McKeown. Each of them has taught him a different approach to breathing that he loves to share with his students.  Mike shares his inventive approach to breathwork with more than 150,000 subscribers – making breathwork techniques easy and accessible with guided practices, music, animations, quick explainers, and deep-dive interviews.
