Hello and warm greetings! If you are here, you likely consider yourself a seeker. We all have our personal path: Seekers of something greater. Seekers of a more fulfilling life. Seekers of expanded consciousness. Seekers of personal spirituality and evolution.
If you can relate to this and are seeking authentic teachings for personal transformation, welcome home.
Who We Are
The Breathing Deeply Meditation School is an online meditation community. Our school is open to all seekers with any experience level or from any tradition looking to expand and evolve their meditation practice.
Through program, process, and community, we work with a blend of yoga and tantric techniques both at home, online, and through consistent live interaction. Designed for householders, our meditation framework is easily understood and accessible through the gift of technology.
The Breathing Deeply Meditation Program is offered in two parts: A stand-alone Personal Meditation Practice Course and if chosen, can be followed by a Meditation Mentor Certification, which gives graduates the ability to guide others on their personal path. Our method divides techniques into three general sections or “levels” of meditation. In each, the teachings are presented clearly and directly, never shrouded in mysterious language. This lets you make enormous strides in a relatively short period of time.
Level 1: Grounding and Tranquility
Learn the essential practices that will prepare your system and bring it into alignment with nature, orienting you into the space of consciousness.
Level 2: Deeper Awareness and Pranic Activation
You will practice techniques that actively change your awareness of consciousness as it appears in your body and expands your sense of who you are and empower your evolution.
Level 3: Samadhi and Surrender
You will bring all the meditation techniques together to integrate yourself into greater consciousness and merge with nature to achieve a greater sense of connection. Ultimately, you are practicing in a way where all of your meditations are continually being worked with while your insights and deeper understanding infuse what each practice brings.
Offered as a 6-month course, the Meditation Program moves you through these three levels the with the intention that each level will be not be mastered in this timeframe, but rather provide you with complete knowledge and comfort with each technique of each practice taught. Students can always move at a slower pace that works for them.
As a Yoga Therapist and seeker, Brandt has been practicing and teaching since 2001. His personal journey serves as an inspiration to countless others and informs his compassionate, humorous, and down-to-earth teaching style.
His teacher shared with him both yoga and tantric meditations as well as text study from various traditions. Brandt’s path, as given to him by his teacher, was to fuse the teachings he was tasked to study into one coherent path. His knowledge has helped thousands move past suffering and towards their fullest potential, and his straightforward, jovial teaching style makes complicated concepts and practices accessible and practical.
Brandt has maintained a private practice for nearly 20 years integrating yoga therapy in the tradition of Krishnamacharya and Structural Yoga Therapy, Medical Massage, a variety of meditation lineages, and plain-old common sense to help people realize their goals. Working with individuals suffering from a wide range of disease and discontent, he serves both as a meditation teacher and Yoga Therapist with an emphasis on finding the most efficient practice/s for an individual’s evolution.
Brandt is dedicated to sharing teachings in a systematized and pragmatic way. He has the ability to share complex concepts in a way that most individuals can use. You will find him candid, relatable, and accessible.

The power of a meditation community is immense. Teachers are the bridge that helps you understand practices in the context of living a full, useful, connected life. A community of like-minded people made up of teachers and fellow students is the container that supports your process and propels your practice.
Collective intention leads to great transformation. Sharing experiences and understanding help us all grow in our own practice. Meditation communities are indispensable for one’s personal growth and we are honored to co-create the Breathing Deeply Meditation Community with you.
The Breathing Deeply Meditation Program is offered through an online platform. Meditation instructions are conveniently available as pre-recorded lessons that are easily accessible to all members of the program as it works for their schedules.
Connection happens through live Q&A’s, an online forum, live and online retreats, and through the Breathing Deeply Meditation social network.
The time commitment of this meditation course is designed for householders. It is expected that you have family, work, and/or other life responsibilities, so the practices offered do not take huge amounts of time. Consistency, however, is extremely important. You can expect to be meditating for 20-40 minutes 1 or 2 times per day. In addition, time for live interactive Q&A calls and self-reflection is highly recommended. Monthly sadhana talks and both online and residential meditation retreats are also available throughout the year, encouraging students to delve deeper into practice together.
“I have meditated quite a bit and had some ‘big’ universal consciousness type experiences doing so. I tried to integrate them into regular life for about 10-15 years. Once I started studying with Brandt I made more progress with that in one year than in the previous 15 years. I tried different practices and communities but couldn’t find one that I felt comfortable in. I wanted a systematic exploration of techniques within a community to help me stay consistent with my meditation practice, even through big life shifts, when I’d tend to falter in consistency, always to my detriment.”
Who Are You?
So many teachers have been trained to teach fantastic yoga classes. They went to yoga school to deepen their practice but there’s something missing. Personal evolution comes through meditation practice. Asana, pranayama, and basic concentration practices are the first steps on what could be a continuous blossoming into our full potential.
We all need teachers and communities to support us in our path. This community and teachings are designed to help you deepen your practice through yoga and tantric techniques. Go beyond stress reduction and mindfulness and learn how to grow your practice while accelerating your personal evolution.
Have you been looking for a meditation home? Or perhaps didn’t even know you were searching until now. We invite you to become a part of a community of like-minded yogis who are interested in supporting each other in evolution. Join the amazing Breathing Deeply Meditation Community.

You do not need to know much about meditation or have a meditation practice to join our program. You do however need a sincere and motivated desire to know yourself and practice regularly to gain the benefits of practice.
Absolutely not. Our teaching is based in yoga and tantra traditions but they are designed for all people. You will not be asked in any way to adopt or change your current faith-based practices. Yoga is accessible to all regardless of culture or belief system. There is some chanting in this course and it may be modified or skipped to match your faith-based needs.
The main teachings are based on expanding awareness and finding the oneness and understanding the similarities in diverse teachings. Brandt’s main teacher taught him both yoga and tantra techniques and this program is an offering of these concepts through his lens of practice, fusing key practices and teachings that he has been given. His work is also influenced by years of meditation mentoring and work as a yoga therapist helping individuals expand consciousness and find stability in practice.
This is a big question! The short answer is that we are here to know ourselves more fully and be more present for ourselves and those around us.
No. Each one of us is an independent thinker and spiritual support comes from many places. No one is required to see anyone as “above” themselves. We are committed to providing a safe environment for all students to practice and expand their knowledge.
