In this episode, I am joined by Jon Paul Crimi to talk about the importance of breath work. We discuss the common question of why one needs to learn how to breathe when the body does it automatically. John Paul explains that breathwork is an umbrella term, and there are different types. He specifically does circular breath work or conscious connected breathing that is aimed at clearing out stuck emotions like stress, anxiety, grief, and trauma.

Show notes: 

[00:01:24] Trauma passed through DNA.

[00:03:19] The power of breath work.

[00:06:51] Breathwork's potential impact.

More Jon Paul Crimi:

Originally from Boston, in his early 20s Jon Paul Crimi moved to Los Angeles and quickly became one of the most sought-after celebrity trainers and sober coaches in the country. Unexpectedly, he found himself in a breathwork class and had a massive transformation that first time. Knowing he had to share this technique, he not only began teaching breathwork, but developed his own unique style and quickly began selling out breathwork classes all over Los Angeles. Jon Paul currently resides in Bend, Oregon with his wife and two children but returns monthly to Los Angeles to teach sold-out breathwork classes and workshops, as well as lead his in-demand Breathwork Teacher Trainings. What makes Jon Paul Crimi stand apart is his east coast no-nonsense approach. He has removed the “New Agey” aspects of breathwork, and now private companies and organizations are filling his calendar. CEOs and the “Forbes set” have found themselves in his classes and have hired him to teach breathwork to their employees. Jon Paul has broadened his classes to include customized workshops and corporate retreats for groups all over the United States. Jon Paul has appeared on Good Morning America and has been featured in The Huffington Post and The Hollywood Reporter. You can find him on countless talk shows and podcasts both in the United States and around the world, as he continues his work to make breathwork more accessible and mainstream. Jon Paul believes everyone can benefit from this practice, and he has Olympians as well as Oscar, Emmy, and Grammy winners to prove it. Witnessing people visibly transform, often after just one breathwork session, is why he greets each day excited to turn people towards their most authentic selves and he has made it his life work to reach as many people as possible.

Recognized by ROI-NJ as one of the top 20 influencers in healthcare, Gallucci has received numerous additional honors, including the Ernst and Young Entrepreneur of the Year Regional Award Winner and the American Physical Therapy Association of New Jersey Distinguished Professional of the Year for his work. In early 2023, Gallucci was recognized by ROI-NJ on their Power List for Healthcare Life Sciences, and was inducted in his alma mater Dominican University’s Alumni Hall of Achievement. An expert in sports medicine, rehabilitation, and injury prevention, Gallucci serves as the Medical Coordinator for Major League Soccer (MLS), coordinating the medical care of more than 800 professional soccer players. He is also a Sports Medicine consultant for professional athletes in the NHL, NFL, NBA, and MLB. A noted author, Gallucci released his first book titled Soccer Injury Prevention and Treatment in May 2014.  His second book, titled Play Ball: Don’t Let Injuries Sideline You This Season was released on May 1, 2018.

 

Gallucci earned his Bachelor of Science in Political Science from the City University of New York- Staten Island.

Dually licensed as an athletic trainer and physical therapist, Gallucci began his career within organizations such as the New York Knicks, New York University, New York Red Bulls, and within several major healthcare systems.
