for Groups, Teams & Classrooms

What are Breathing Breaks?

Breathing Breaks© is an energizing breathwork series that promotes focus, creativity and engagement in remote-working teams.


During this 8-week series, your team will experience the benefits of a short, simple breathwork practice which serves to quickly lower stress levels and increase feelings of relaxation, calm, focus, engagement, and team collaboration.


The Breathing Breaks program directly supports organizational goals related to employee mental health and well-being, inclusivity, organizational agility, innovation, team collaboration, and retention.

Breathing is massively practical. It's meditation for people who can't meditate."

Dr. Belisa Vranich, author of Breathe

Why Breathwork?

Recent publications have demonstrated the remarkable benefits of breathwork for health and performance, including:  


  • Enhancing cognitive performance, including attention, memory, and executive function

  • Alleviating anxiety and negative emotions

  • Quickly lowering stress levels

  • Enhancing clear thinking, focus and concentration

  • Modulating emotional recognition and memory recall

  • Reducing inflammation, regulating blood pressure and preventing insomnia


While much has been written on breathwork, the best way to experience its benefits is to try a session for yourself!

How does the Breathing Breaks program work?

Breathing Breaks sessions are fast, fun, and effective

in bringing people together.


The breathwork practice is designed to be active, energizing, engaging and suitable for beginners.


This is not your usual boring meditation practice! 


The Breathing Breaks 8-week series is designed to fit easily into your team’s existing work schedule.


Your team members will be invited to join

one live Breathing Breaks session per week

guided by an expert facilitator.


Each session will be under 25 minutes

and will take place in an online forum.


Sessions are accessible to all staff,

including those with special needs. 


In addition to our sessions, we’ll also provide your team with two Breathing Breaks audio recordings for participants who wish to take their practice home and make breathwork part of their daily life.


Meet Your Facilitator

Briya (Rachel) Freeman is facilitator and consultant with nearly 15 years’ experience in serving public and government organizations.



Over the past 8 years, her courses in breathwork, meditation and stress-resilience have also reached private, public and international audiences.


As a facilitator, she is known to be professional, highly experienced and engaging.


“Work and daily life, especially in the midst of COVID-19, has been incredibly stressful and I often found my brain too overwhelmed to be able to focus. This activity was an excellent outlet for me to gain clarity and focus. I have used this in my practice as a nurse manager and find the more I use it, the more efficient and productive I am. I feel the quality of my work will improve as I continue to practice breath works because of how it allows me to focus. I will be sharing this at team meetings as well.

"I feel like this faculty cares about my mental health!"

At first I was reluctant to partcipate [in this program], but as the weeks went on, I started to look forward to the breathing exercises. It was a way to ease into class, take a moment to be grateful for important things that matter. We don't value mindfulness as a society!
