About Us & Feedback


What strategies do you have for remaining calm, composed and productive at work?

The problem with stress is that it can cause us to make bad decisions. Being productive to perform well at work is almost like having a superpower given everything that we have to deal with outside of work.

We specialise in giving leaders and their people those superpowers in the form of e.g. controlling strategies for managing stress, and how to be a stress detective, helping to avoid stress in the first instance.

From our work and feedback, more people now recognise that some of the pioneering modalities we use to help companies improve their performance including breathwork help CEO’s and teams beat burnout!

Change Your Habits.

“In setting up Sniff. Sigh. Yawn., I’ve met with literally hundreds of people who recognised that they hyperventilate or over breathe (but sometimes only after I explained) some do it whilst asleep with their mouth open (that’s me, mouth taped so I don’t), others do it whilst at the gym, and many people who use technology either at work or outside of work or both, find themselves hyperventilating too!

It’s not something you want to do all of your life or at all if you can help it because it can lead to serious illness.”

Joel was really good – very clear & concise & made a lot of sense! I think we all benefit from switching off & taking time to connect with our breathing.”
