… an enjoyable weekend of education – the small group, personal attention … layering of course content. The whole group interacted and the sessions were on the move.

Owner, Paul Collins Fitness

[I really liked] combining the practical with the theory. The walk on day 3 was excellent, and then combining that with the indoor walking and the practice was a good finish to the course. I thought Gray was very knowledgeable and welcoming, very relaxed and made everyone feel comfortable. (November 2023).

Sammi

Company Director, Fiit

Gray is a great and passionate teacher with different fields of expertise. He has a broad vision on breathwork and on its practical uses. [I particularly enjoyed] the group connection and the playfulness.
