About The Founders


The vision of the Online Breathing Academy is to be a collection of collaborative projects educating professionals in breathing and how it can effect our health and mental wellbeing. Started by Shane & Angie Saunders of Breathe Me.

Their first collaborative project is the Breathing Science Course with Dr. Peter Litchfield of the Graduate School of Behavioral Health Sciences.

Shane and Angie are actively studying with Dr. Litchfield and his partner Sandra Reamer, MS, M.F.A., CBBA, CBBP, CSOM, CST while working with clients as they become Certified Breathing Behavioral Analysts from the Professional School of Behavioral Health Sciences.

Together their mission is to support Personal Trainers, Life Coaches and Health Practitioners to facilitate their work helping clients to achieve their physical and mental health goals by utilizing the art of breathing based on physiological and behavioral sciences.

Shane's wife, Angie left the USA to join forces in together in Australia, not only in marriage, but in their professional work where together they built a community that supports peoples experiences of life and implement multi-disciplinary techniques for improving mental wellness and performance.

Meet Angie Saunders

Former Entertainer and Production Coordinator, Co-Founder of Breathe Me, Award Winning Author, Professional Coach, Professional Speaker, and Co-Host of The Breathing Edge Podcast

Angie is from a high-powered background in the entertainment industry in Hollywood where she worked both in front of the camera (singing, dancing, acting and stunts) and behind the scenes in production, coordinating films where personal high performance was central to her profession. 

 Together with Shane, they share a common interest in the art (practice) and science (research) of mind-body psychology and the development of optimal self-regulation during performance under pressure led them to weaving together an integrated collection of high-performance learning techniques for reducing stress, working in demanding environments, improving sleep, and stabilizing personal energy. These techniques include the union of ancient wisdom of the breath with breathing science to lower reactivity, improve focus, and bring the mind and body into balance.

The Breathing Science Course...

How breathing affects mental wellness and performance. 

Breathing is a behavior that can dramatically impact human health and performance. A persons breathing habits can have a profound impact on their perception, memory, cognition, emotion, attention and even personality. 

After combined decades of research, we've come to realize that breathing science may be the missing link impacting the results that coaches, trainers, therapists and other Allied Health Professionals are missing in one to one or small group work with clients. 

By bringing together a straight forward formula rooted in behavioral health sciences and teaching them in a way that's practical, relevant and easy to implement, this work will be relevant to the lives of millions.
