Develop Emotional Resilience

Our identity shifts from how we show up on a daily basis and in this module you will begin to lead yourself at your next level, develop self trust and start making new moves in your life.



Using advanced techniques, you'll begin to incorporate daily practices that heighten creativity, senses, and your connection to the gifts the present moment offers you for growth.


Becoming Superhuman Through the Breath

Leverage breathwork and meditation to navigate all aspects of the human cycle and human psyche as the pilot of your life.


There's a reason breathwork has become the fastest growing personal practice that experts are raving about. It's time for you to experience the magic yourself.

The practices that you will gain throughout Foundations work in a sequential way and are easy to access in your day to day life. Every video is structured in a way to prepare your mind and body to receive pure happiness, purpose, love, and presence by first restoring your physical body.

The body, acting as a gatekeeper to your mind, holds the experiences of our life. Happy memories, trauma, moments through life that left impressions, all take shape in our body. Through Breathwork, we begin providing you with simple practices to invite the body to unwind. Reducing stress, anxiety, and tension held throughout the body creates a sense of safety in which the brain no longer experiences survival mode and a constant state of “fight or flight.”

This is a course in learning how to hack your nervous system so your baseline shifts from surviving to thriving.


This is your fast track to becoming the most tapped in, turned on and tuned in version of yourself that you have always dreamt of becoming.

No one does breathwork like us. If you've been waiting for a high energy, easily accessible, and relatable program that demystifies the power of breath and meditation so that you can incorporate it into your every day routine, Foundations will deliver above and beyond.

We've worked with thousands of students across six continents

"For me Ava opened more doors for my heart, mind, body, and soul that I had yet to know in this new way. She is truly the best soul I could have chosen to help me find my way with meditation and breathwork. I have learned so much. My intuition is even stronger than before. I truly see breathing in a whole new light."

"She dives into the science, the spirituality behind each, how to use 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 [and] the incredible value she provides."

"I completed the Foundations course as someone who was a complete beginner to breathwork. I cannot believe how a simple practice like this can create such powerful changes in such a short time. A sense of inner peace, less anxiety and greater awareness to name a few benefits. The program is easy to follow and when you realise you can tap into your intuition, it shifts your whole being towards living more authentically. I truly recommend giving it a go!"

The power of


Breathwork and meditation changed everything for me. I have been reborn time and time again using these practices as my rocket ship for infinite growth.

Everything shifted when I really understood that it isn’t just for the experience within the 20 minutes I’d sit in stillness, it is for who I became with eyes open, walking throughout my day. The beginning didn’t feel like much, if I wasn’t devoted, I probably would have disregarded these practices - but just like everything natural, it took time for my roots to ground and for my practice to blossom into what it is today. It was a slow burn that alchemized into a wildfire of creativity, heart opening + bursting love, a deep connection to feeling my own presence and the presence of God around me always.

Through my practice, I experienced deep devotional love of self and love of the world - despite the flaws that once had me wrapped in self loathing and hopelessness. My vision became clearer, my purpose became known. Over time, I realized I was no longer floundering, searching for meaning in others or things. And even in the cycle of being human, when things got hard, my practice became prayer, helping me to see that what I was experiencing was not to break me down, but to build me stronger + wiser than ever before.

I owe my life to breathwork + meditation. For the discoveries, answers and conclusions I’ve come to within the stillness of my practice, for the expansion of my mind, my beliefs and the authentic optimism of the thoughts that frequent my day. And of course, for the woman I’ve become - softer, free, compassionate, loving, open and giving…and always getting better. 

As you venture into the depths of your own practice through BREATHWORK, know that anything is possible and I am deeply excited to witness your transformation.

I have pre-existing health conditions, can I still enroll?

Breathwork is generally safe when practiced with care. However, there are a few cases when it would not be advised to do breathwork; namely for anyone with a known cardiac arrhythmia (including very slow heart rate), a history of heart block, or people taking certain antipsychotic medications. Additionally, some types of breathwork can induce hyperventilation, which can bring on dizziness, chest pain, and pounding heartbeat. Check with your doctor before you start a breathwork practice if you have a history of any of the following or are currently taking antipsychotic medications.

Breathwork not recommended if you have any of the following:

  • breathing issues
  • cardiovascular issues
