Breathwork Workshop im Yogastudio

Passionate About Breathwork

The Breath Fast Club was founded in 2020 by Rafael Schwarzmann out of pure enthusiasm for breathwork. As a trained yoga teacher and freediver, he brings a deep understanding of body awareness, posture, and energy flow to his breathwork practice.

Inspired for years by various breathing techniques and ritual practices that facilitate transitions and personal growth, he creates accessible spaces in his weekly breathwork classes that are designed to tap into the power of one's own breath. His non-dogmatic teaching style allows participants to explore profound breathing patterns, release blockades, and regain balance.

Rafael is dedicated to providing a safe and supportive environment where you can explore this practice and discover its numerous benefits. Whether you're new to breathwork or an experienced practitioner, everyone is warmly invited to explore the transformative power of breath.
