Life starts and ends with the breath
Stress, illness, anxiety, lack of sleep, too much screen time, too little outdoor time in nature – the modern world influences the way we breathe and the way we live on every tangible level
All of these factors impact our state – the homeostasis of where our body most likes to be – causing us to be disconnected from nature and disconnected from ourselves
When we are out of balance within and without, our entire physiology reacts and this impacts on our physical and mental state
Yet we all hold the magic key to changing this…
Our breathing says a lot about how we deal with the world around us. It tells the story of how we respond to the stresses and strains of everyday life, how we process all these experiences and then store them in our bodies
Breathing is one of the only actions of the autonomic nervous system that we can consciously control. We can use breath to manipulate how we feel, how our body regulates and processes our emotions and overall well being
That’s why we created Breathless…
To support humans to understand and know how to get back to a natural, more optimal way of breathing and in turn improve the way they live
WHAT IS BREATHLESS?
Breathless is the space in between science and the unknown…
The space between the head and the heart…
The space between who you are and who you are becoming…
The space between DOING and BEING

Learning from and working alongside some of the highest performers and best minds in the world such as Laird Hamilton, David Goggins, Partick McKeown, NRL Teams, Wim Hof and more – Johannes is a world-leader in cultivating Peak Performance in Life.
Since his birth in the Netherlands and a rocky upbringing, Johannes has continually strived to discover a silver lining whilst pushing the edge with creative endeavors. Having previously served as a Head Chef, Sculptor, and Freediving Instructor, he always looked for positive outlets to channel all his energy but seemingly hit a dead-end. By a shocking twist of fate, he was introduced to something unexpected that would alter the direction of his life forever – the power of breathing.
This relatively untapped field immediately resonated with Johannes, and he relentlessly cultivated knowledge on the subject from the brilliant minds of Wim Hof, Laird Hamilton, and many others.
After adequately equipping himself with the tools and experience needed, he turned his energies to create Breathless – the industry leader in world-class breath-focused workshops, experiences, expeditions and education.
With all the noise in today’s society, people are more disconnected than ever from themselves and each other.

With world-renowned clientele such as David Goggins, Ludovico Einaudi, A-League Sports Teams, and some of Australia’s largest companies, Breathless is changing the way that individuals, teams and corporations achieve Peak Performance (*and maintain it in their lives).
Throughout his journey, Johannes has experimented with countless methodologies and theories, enabling him to deliver only the relevant information that will spark real change. The immense exposure breathwork has gotten in recent years has allowed him to speak in front of audiences in excess of 5000 people, with the aim of inspiring them so they can all learn to inhabit the space between each breath.
