About Pause Breathwork

We help people decrease suffering,
unlock their infinite potential and change lives.

Here at Pause, we know that the body is the healer…

We envision a world where everyone has the awareness and knowledge to use their breath to clear anxiety and stress. It’s our big audacious goal to impact 1,000,000 people through the power of breathwork, embodiment and leadership!

We’ve developed our own breathwork and coaching techniques to maximize healing and transformation, so we can access deeper states of bliss, peace, and happiness.

There are many breathing practices that aim to just relax you, but with Pause Breathwork, relaxation is actually a side effect of the practice. Our breathwork and coaching techniques help you discover stuck energy inside of you that stops you from living in your highest alignment. When you release this energy, you can operate at a higher frequency with more ease.

Our Core Values

The Pause Mission

Help people remember what is important in life, by making the liberation of stress and anxiety accessible to ALL people worldwide through the power of breathwork.

What is breathwork?

The Pause Technique is a method of using continual breathwork to release anxiety and stress. The technique uses the breath as the healer to shift stuck emotions that create heaviness & overwhelm in the body.

Our technique uses intentional stimulation (breath, music, and movement) to regulate the nervous system and bring your body back into balance.

Our Company Values


We know and embody the ethos of wellness. We understand that physical, emotional, mental and spiritual health are the pillars of greatness, success and deep fulfillment. Our bodies are our vessels, therefore we know they come first. Wellness at Pause is prioritized over everything else. We declare a calm culture, therefore ensuring we are operating from powerful and aligned energy. Breathwork starts all meetings to ensure we are operating from a place of power & alignment.


The mission is at the center of everything we do at Pause. Our mission to amplify the spiritual gifts of leaders so that together we can change the world is what excites us, drives us & fulfills us. We deeply know that breathwork is changing the world and we are leading the movement through our mobile app and world class training.


We are here to learn, evolve and grow. This requires taking extreme ownership of all the things we own, say, or act upon: for the results we are committed to, as well as when we fail. When the mission breaks down, we name the misfire & communicate an action plan to the rest of the team, all while acknowledging the impact it created. We aren’t here to be perfect, we are here to be constantly learning, growing and evolving.


We respect numbers. We know our mission is only successful when we reach and impact people who are aligned to join our mission. Our goals are markers of impact and our leaders hold these key numbers with integrity. We aim to always create the simplest and most direct path to our goals, and to embody the calm culture we all desire to work within.


We exist to create ‘awe inspiring’ moments for our clients. We aim to deliver the most impactful, inspiring and transformative experience they have ever had. We want them to say ‘wow, they really have thought of everything’, as they interact with our training programs and mobile app. We are constantly surveying our students and enhancing the experience based on their feedback.
