What is IBF?

The International Breathwork Foundation is a non-profit global network established in 1994. All our task force members are volunteers. IBF is open to everyone interested in the use of Conscious Breathing and Breathwork for health, well-being and spiritual practice.

The purpose of the IBF is to promote a heart-centred approach to breathwork, its theory and practice, for the expansion of consciousness and for personal and global transformation.

IBF Stories

Breathwork In Action

Since 1994, IBF annually organises the Global Inspiration Conference (GIC), a week-long celebration of the breath. It is held in a different country each year, in a venue with beautiful natural surroundings. The GIC is a wonderful opportunity to exchange views, teach, learn and receive inspiration from like-minded friends and colleagues.
At the GIC you will find workshops, lectures, social events, sharing of best practice, dancing, good food, good company and lots of fun. It’s a wonderful opportunity for personal and professional growth, as well as making friends and valuable connections.

Breathwork Development Fund

We are committed to the development of conscious breathwork and making it accessible to all around the globe. The fund was created in 2011 to financially support initiatives to bring the benefits of Breathwork to people and places that would otherwise not have the opportunity to experience it.

It is also our major fund to sponsor IBF members to come to our Annual Global Conferernce (GIC)
Anyone can contribute to the Breathwork Development Fund through a donation.
