Creator of Breathwork Academy and the explorer of human equanimity, Artur is working internationally to transform our access to daily calm through breathwork.
In his early years, Artur became one of the first instructors trained directly by Wim Hof. This was his first training in breath mastery, which now spans a variety of breath-based approaches to wellbeing, resilience and inner-strength.
