Breathe! Online Course

Tap into the power of the breath


George Thompson








About the course: Access hidden potential

We all breathe but very few people realise how breathing well can transform almost every aspect of life. There are simple breathing principles that can help with stress, anxiety, sleep, confidence and so much more. Best of all, you can practice anywhere and it only takes a few minutes a day to see amazing results.
My aim with this course is to equip you with the ideas and practices to make your breath a powerful tool that helps you live your best life!

What you will learn:

✅ To use your breath to reduce stress and enjoy life!

✅ To exercise more efficiently so you can live with energy

✅ To strengthen your concentration and self-confidence

✅ How the breath can help you understand your place in the universe

This course gives you access to 6 pre-recorded sessions, to be watched over 6 weeks. Each session, we will breathe together so you can experience for yourself the benefits of these principles. We will explore the science of WHY breath practices are so powerful. As you deepen your understanding of your breath, be empowered to transform these practices into a way of living that helps you live life to the fullest.

Qi Gong

Become flexible: physically and mentally

One of our basic needs is to move. Every course involves movement, often Qi Gong from ancient China. As we open up our bodies, we open our minds and raise our energy!


Develop calm clarity.

Meditation is the core practice to help us live with freedom. As we still the mind, we gain clarity as to who we are really. We naturally become more compassionate to ourselves and others.


Personal growth the playful way 💪✨

We can be sincere without being serious. In all the courses, I’ll invite us to be silly together, to smile at the parts of ourselves that we may normally dislike. Be surprised at play’s transformative power.
