About The Host




Johannes has led an inspiring life of tremendous self-discovery, enlightenment, and diversity, even being featured in GQ Magazine and ABC news. Although coming from a rocky upbringing, he never failed to look for the silver lining while staying busy with creative endeavours. 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 – controlled breathing. This relatively untapped field immediately resonated with Johannes, and he has since relentlessly cultivated knowledge on the subject from brilliant minds such as Wim Hof, Laird Hamilton, and many others.

 After adequately equipping himself with the tools and experience needed, he decided to start his own holistic wellness brand known as, Breathless. With all the noise in today’s society, people are more disconnected than ever from themselves and each other. Through the ancient teachings of controlled breathing, Johannes looks to shed light on a lost art that is both beneficial mentally and physically, even spiritually. With world-renowned clientele such as David Goggins, Ludovico Einaudi, A-League Sports Teams, and some of Australia’s largest companies taking notice of this practice, the future is brighter than ever for Johannes and Breathless.

As someone who was saved by the simple act of changing his breathing, Johannes has made it his life mission to be a beacon of guidance for those who want to do the same. Throughout this spiritual journey, he has tinkered with countless methodologies and theories, which has enabled 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 we can all learn to inhabit the space between each breath.
