Australian Academy of Breathwork

Definition of Breathwork: A safe simple breathing technique that provides the opportunity to see and change patterns and thoughts from the past, that may hinder or stop you from enjoying your life in the present.

What is Breathwork?

Breathwork, as it was originally practiced and taught by its founder Leonard Orr, is a very gentle breathing process. This type of breathing releases physical, emotional and mental stress, energises the body and induces a deep state of relaxation and clarity of mind.

During the Breathwork process most people have profound insights into their lives, and are able to see solutions to their problems.

The aim of Breathwork is the expansion of awareness, and becoming more enlightened with, and accepting of oneself.

The breathing technique is called connected breathing – breathing without any pause between the inhale and exhale. The body is oxygenated and as increased amounts of energy reach parts of the body that have long been held in tension, stored or suppressed memories,emotions and mental patterns are recalled and released.

Once a person has passed through the initial release stage, the session becomes meditative and a deep sense of relaxation and heightened awareness is reached.

Before Rebirthing I felt like I had no personal power over my life. After Rebirthing, I learnt how to have personal power over my life!


“I have worked with and experienced many therapies and techniques throughout my professional career. What Rebirthing / Breathwork achieves for the ‘rebirthee’ is more profound, complete, and spiritually transforming than any other technique I have been exposed to.”


Many things shifted for me before, during and after the training, and I am sure, like most, that I continue to integrate the work into my life.
