Today we’d like to introduce you to Jon Paul Crimi.

Jon Paul, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
I’m originally from Boston, Ma. And I never thought in a million years this is what I’d end up doing today. I’m not a guy you would expect to teach something like Breathwork. I’m sort of like what would happen if Bill Burr and Tony Robbins had a hairless love child and they somehow fell into teaching this thing because it changed their lives and they felt some weird obligation to then share it and help as many other people as they could.

I don’t take myself so seriously. I don’t pretend to be a calm “Meditation Teacher” pretending that I’m enlightened and I’ve got all my shit completely figured out.

I’m human, I’ve made a ton of mistakes and corrections along the way. I teach from that place. I’m just a guide on this trail that we’re all on and I’m trying to point out how to best climb over some of the big rocks, where the thorn bushes are, and how to get back onto the trail when you’re lost.

Has it been a smooth road?
It’s been a brutal road. I’m a guy who needed to make massive changes in my life in every area you can imagine. I’ve struggled with all of it: alcoholism and addiction; relationships and sex; anger-management; poor self-esteem and self-worth. I tried every form of self-help and meditation practice available and none of them could quiet my noisy head – until I discovered Breathwork.

So let’s switch gears a bit and go into the Breathe With Jon Paul story. Tell us more about the business.
It’s easy – if you want results, you must make the effort. Nothing changes if nothing changes. If you want something different, then do something different. I will show you exactly how and what to do – and the best part is, it’s easy and fun. No BS. I’ll show you how to change your life immediately, take the simple steps that are necessary and create lasting and permanent transformative change.

I facilitate change and transformation in the lives of people from every walk of life. I’ve become an expert at helping people execute tremendous growth in their physical, mental and emotional states – giving them the tools and inspiration required. I’ve helped perfect a compassionate and honest approach to interrupting past bad habits and creating new, lasting healthy behavior. How did I do it? By learning and using all of these time–honed methods on myself first. I know all of this works because I was nothing less than a disaster and now I’m not just better – I’m thriving. I want to share all of these wonders with everyone who needs real change in their lives.

I’m not your doctor, I’m not a therapist, nor your guru. I don’t use fancy words or rely on strange, new-age terminology to try and elevate myself or make you feel smaller. I’m simply a guy who has discovered the key that unlocks the door to a much healthier and fulfilling life and I want to share it with as many people as humanly possible.

How do you think the industry will change over the next decade?
If meditation is the new Yoga…which it is, then Breathwork will be the new meditation.

Twenty years ago, when I moved to LA, there were only a few yoga studios. Now yoga studios are like Starbucks; one on every corner. And soon, Meditation Studios will overtake yoga studios. Why? Because not only does everyone need it but it’s also easier to do then yoga. And people want the most results for the least amount of effort. It’s just human nature.

Breathwork will become huge in the next 5-10 years because the results are massive and absolutely undeniable from just your first time. It’s like a meditation on steroids.
