"Working with Joey helped me to unlock parts of my inner self I hadn’t tapped into for a long time, and truly helped me come to peace internally and externally with life, all while challenging me to grow." —Louis Newkirk

"After Joey's workshop, I realized two things: 1. I'd forgotten to breathe, 2. Fear has been holding me back. When we were in the breath workshop, I started to cry since I was able to release so much tension and stress. It was a game-changer. Thank you, Joey for a life-changing experience." —Yigal Adato

The first time I did breathwork with Joey, I instantly noticed the enjoyment of a calm mind for the first time in years. I've implemented the breathing techniques under extremely stressful situations and it has resulted successfully in being able to better control my emotions and the ability to fully understand them. Thank you so much Joey. I’m truly grateful for the help and love you share." —Michael Cronin

"Joey is the best breathwork instructor I’ve ever met. Not only is he an expert guide, but he is also a clear communicator, educating you in the process. I’ve had personal breakthroughs in his workshops that have carried on well past the moment because of how well he led us." —Sathiya Sam
