Breathless is the space between science and the unknown; the space between the head and the heart; between learning and feeling. The space between doing and being. It's the culmination of several industry leaders collective years of research into and practice of different breathing protocols and holistic wellbeing methods, studying under some of the world’s most renowned breathwork experts and investigating the science - both old and the new. Breathless combines well-known, ancient breathwork techniques with new and altogether revolutionary neuroscience and studies into human potential, in one place. We believe that by learning to become aware of our breath and how it impacts on us, we can influence our health, our mental state, the way we feel, the way we move; the way we live.


Conquer more than just a mountain. Over the weekend, you will experience advanced breathwork sessions, informative workshops, guided meditations, stimulating discussions and of course, cold water immersion. Your local alpine guides will be on hand to help guide you through and gain a unique insight into the beauty that is the Snowy Mountains. Swim in pristine glacial rivers, summit one of Australia’s highest peaks in minimal clothing and reach your highest potential during this unique weekend adventure.

We will be there to guide and support you every step of the way. To help you make this your own journey. To allow you the space and provide you with the tools to tap into your inner superhuman. No matter what your fitness level is, no matter what you’re looking to get out of this time away, you will leave armed with the knowledge and daily practices to enhance your mental, emotional and physical wellness and embrace your true full potential.


While all activities require a basic level of fitness, you don’t need to be an elite athlete to take part. We all take each activity at our own pace and no one will be left behind. No previous experience or training is required.




About The Host



Johannes Egberts

Johannes Egberts has led an inspiring life of tremendous self-discovery, enlightenment, and diversity. Through a rocky upbringing, he learned to always look for silver linings, while busing himself with creative endeavours. With an abundance of natural, inquisitive energy, he explored a variety of vocations and has been a Head Chef, Sculptor, and Freediving Instructor, however none managed to sate his appetite for long or fully align with yet undiscovered calling. Then, in one of lifes great twists, he was introduced to something that would change his course forever – controlled breathing. This still relatively unexplored field of well-being & medical science immediately resonated with Johannes, and he was compelled to cultivate a wealth of knowledge on the subject, seeking out brilliant minds such as Wim Hof and Laird Hamilton, among many others.

After equipping himself with the tools and experience needed, Johannes was called to start his own holistic wellness platform - Breathless. Through the ancient teachings of controlled breathing, he endeavours to shed light on a lost art that is beneficial mentally and physically, even spiritually - especially in today’s noisy society, where people are more disconnected from themselves and each other than ever. With world-renowned clientele such as David Goggins, Ludovico Einaudi, A-League Sports Teams, and some of Australia’s largest companies taking note, Breathless has gone from strength to strength and Johannes has even being featured in GQ Magazine and ABC news

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.
