Making The World Better

Our Vision for Digital Training

Thanks for stopping to learn about who we are, why we're here, and the career experiences and learning we bring to our work, and share with our customers and partners.

We envision a near-future in which everyone has high-quality, affordable and medically recommended digital health tools at their fingertips, in the home, on-the-go, and in the workplace. It's a world in which the tides of epidemic diseases start receding, and access to care grows. Where doctors and other healthcare providers do more for their patients because they have tools to efficiently support and complement what they do in the office. It's a world in which the benchmark for patient engagement is that they are doing something proactive, everyday, to take better care of themselves.

If you have any questions or thoughts, or want to join our team, please send us a note!

Why BreatheAware?

In sports training I first studied the effect of coaching players to use mind-body skills for performance and recovery....there's just overwhelming scientific evidence of the benefits, and I've seen the results on and off the field. At BreatheAware we're driven by a tremendous opportunity to help all people, every day, use these same methods to improve their lives and fight modern epidemic diseases.
