The Academy of Breath was easy to digest and also provided an incredible amount of information. I love that Ava blended the science with the spiritual, which is unlike any other breathwork/meditation course that I have come across.

My confidence was the biggest change for me and I couldn't be happier. In the beginning, I was so worried about if I'd be able to actually film a 10 minutes video for the certification. So many self-limiting beliefs were coming up, but the way the weeks were set up with weekly homework I slowly began to realize my power. I'm not the same person I was when I started the six weeks. I'm more confident, happier, and I know that I'm aligning with my purpose. I learned a lot about the science and practice of meditation and breathwork, so that I can be knowledgable when working with others. It's incredible how confident I feel now about being able to lead sessions! Ava is truly the best and she is so genuine. Her support throughout the course and beyond is incredible.

The moment Ava shared The Academy of Breath Certification I knew I was in. This program has opened up so many expansive goals in my career as a coach and leader. Ava truly stretched my imagination and gave me so many tools to dive deeper into my purpose.She empowered me to be MYSELF, be unique and find your my own voice in this space. If you’re looking to dive deeper into your being and begin to trust your intuition and voice as a leader this certification is for you!
Tara D. @taradisch
The Academy of Breath was informative and educational, but also so empowering and transformational for my own life and practice, my coaching business, and even my relationships. AND it was also SO MUCH FUN! I have the confidence to create practices for my clients to help support them on their own journey and transformation. And I’ve learned to embody my own practice even further; owning my own voice as a leader and healer in the spiritual wellness space. I didn’t expect it, but more of me came out throughout this certification and I’m sharing more of my authentic self with the world every day. One of the biggest things for me was that I was able to integrate the practices that were presented right away with confidence.
Emily M. @soulfullyemily
The Academy of Breath completely shifted the way I show up for myself, allowed me to simplify my morning routine and start my day with ease. I've been able to shift into confidence, believe that I'm knowledgable and expand my offerings as a healer and coach. This certification program is truly life changing. It is so simplified but jam-packed with knowledge, tools and so much information. Ava is a wonderful teacher who truly cares about everything and their experience.
Shannon P. @shannonloveparker
If you are looking for a certification program that beautifully blends the science and spirituality behind breathwork and meditation, supported by the unwavering encouragement of Ava as your coach throughout the whole process I would HIGHLY recommend the Academy of Breath. Emerging from this program I feel knowledgeable, confident and prepared to begin facilitating and integrating these tools into my offerings. I truly feel revitalized by the power of this work!
Rachel F. @rachelfrank
I loved The Academy of Breath! What a beautiful space Ava held for all the teachers. She explained the science behind the breathing techniques and how we can apply it to improve our lives. Her confidence and friendly demeanor shined through as she lead a beautiful example of how we can all become the meditation teacher of our dreams. I highly recommend taking this course with Ava to improve your own meditation practice and be able to share it with others!
Academy of Breath Success Story with Natalie A. @nat.anna
Ava Johanna is a celebrity meditation and breathwork instructor, international spiritual business coach and host of the top wellness podcast: The Alchemized Life. At the beginning of her journey in the wellness space as a yoga teacher, Ava was constantly looking for ways to bring more depth to her students and found it in these tools.

Past Student Success Stories...
Lee Anne @mindbodybreathe_
The Academy of Breath is truly about total transformation! It is SO much more than a course on breathwork/meditation. Yes, Ava goes deep into many breathwork & meditation styles, the science, the spirituality behind each, how to use them, how to teach them and allows time to practice each. The surprise factor is how much information & space is given for self-reflection and inner-work. Ava gives from a place of true service and it shows in her genuine spirit, the incredible value she provides and her unique ability to listen and connect with each participant.
Cindy G. @elevateeleven
Joining the Academy of Breath was the best investment I made this year! I learned so much about breath work, meditation and myself during the program. I have taught yoga for over 6 years and have never truly felt confident or comfortable leading breath work or meditation, until now. The Academy of Breath awakened the tools that were already within me, encouraged me to truly show up as my authentic self, find my voice and guide others in their breath work/mediation practice.
Haley P. @iamhayleymichelle
Every aspect of The Academy of Breath was essential for the offering she graciously facilitated. Live calls, masterclasses, course platform & the social media community all were very fundamental in the flow of energy these souls created within Ava’s safe space. I was able to better view and understand my future self, and how to hone in on exactly what it is I want, and how to get there. The learning also significantly boosted my confidence and how to deal with identity crisis issues when they surfaced. Ava has this magical way of propelling your mindset straight into this future self through the practices & knowledge she shares.
Delia N. @deliaflorence_nak
I loved the experience I had working with Ava in the Academy of Breath! She holds space so beautifully for others and allows them to have their own unique journey. I had already been trained in breath but did not have the confidence or knowledge to teach or share this gift. I honestly can not say enough good things! I am beyond confident now in so many areas of my life. That's just one of the many bonuses of working with Ava, she will show you the rockstar you have always been!
