~ What other trainees thought ~

The way he was sensitive to the needs of our group, and adapted the course program when necessary, made the Conscious Breathwork Facilitator Training with Jean special. Not only was it a place of learning and development, but it also formed a special bond between all of us.

I now feel well prepared to facilitate my own breathwork sessions.

Vanessa | Germany | 2023

Participating in the Conscious Connected Breathwork Training in Portugal was an enriching and deep experience. Jean, as the instructor, cultivated a nurturing environment, guiding us through breathwork sessions that not only alleviated stress but also deepened the self-awareness. This training wasn't just about mastering a technique; it delved into understanding the mind-body connection and unlocking our vast internal potential within.


Jean created a true safe space for self-exploration and provided valuable opportunities to practice facilitating 1:1 breath journeys for others within the group.  


I genuinely appreciate this journey in a group with like-minded individuals and with the holistic approach that Jean brought into it. 


Thank you for facilitating such a meaningful experience!

Sandra | Germany | 2023

Jean's Conscious Connected Breathwork training program was incredibly illuminating and completely changed my relationship with breath. His tuition is compassionate, wise, intuitive and wonderfully practical.


I learnt a great deal about myself and the science of breath and on completion of the program felt confident in guiding sessions for individuals and groups. Amazing teacher, beautiful program. Thank you, Jean.
