“if your personal energy is not taken care of then everything else falls apart. Your breath is like a fingerprint, what works for you does not work for everyone

Shane and Angie Saunders are world leaders in breathing, they have delivered workshops for Mindvalley and trained with fellow experts Wim Hof, Dr. Belisa Vranich, and Dan Brulé.
