Elemental Rhythm Breathwork Program was created by Giovanni Bartolomeo as a tool to help himself release tension and emotional blockages, find clarity, improve performance and to deepen his meditation and self awareness.

Over the last 10 years he has explored various forms of sound, movement, connection, breathwork and guided meditation, and taken his favourite elements from various practices to curate a unique experience, one that has produced incredible results in a very short period of time. Many people have an impactful experience on their first session. Once he began sharing it with others he quickly realized what worked for him was also working for those he shared it with. The Elemental Rhythm Breakthrough Experience (Level 1 Training) combines sound, movement, various breathing patterns and holds, guided mediation and support circles to create an experience like no other. When practiced regularly we have seen some incredible transformations in peoples lives.

In the Level 1 Training you will be taught everything you need to know in order to facilitate this experience. This will be an online training, there may be in-person week long destination retreats offered in the future as well. Trainings will be done over zoom, with additional support materials including self study manual and recorded videos.




Attending the Elemental Rhythm Breathwork training in Costa Rica was one of the best investments I could make. The entire weekend was equal parts practical information, in-person practice, and introspective work. I felt seen and supported by Gio and Steph, and left feeling so good about my decision to become a Breathwork facilitator.

Immediately after the training, I was able to start hosting my own events. After several months, I now guide Breathwork journeys on a weekly basis, with an incredible community that keeps coming back and bringing more of their friends.

Seeing first-hand all of the healing and experiences others can have through breath, especially when following the Elemental Rhythm guidelines, has been such a rewarding adventure and to do it in such an incredible setting in beautiful costa rica made it an experience I will never forget.

I’d always felt drawn to breathwork but the modalities I encountered always felt so masculine in nature, pushing harder in intensity and strength. Then I went to my first Elemental Rhythm Breathwork session with Gio and knew I had found my teacher, balancing the masculine push with the feminine magnetism of internal healing. As a woman who has traveled the world and studied with experts in their craft, I was blown away at the clarity, precision, hands-on preparation, and continuing educational content provided in my Elemental Rhythm Breahthwork Facilitator training. I left the weekend feeling completely qualified to lead a life-changing breathwork experience, which is exactly what happened and continues to happen every time someone lays on their mat.

As a spiritual teacher who has led thousands of people around the world in different healing modalities and somatic techniques, the feedback is undeniable. Elemental Rhythm Breathwork shaves years off of someone’s inner healing journey, as testified time and time again in our closing circles. I’m forever grateful for this powerful tool that’s not only helped me expand my calling as a healer, but also set so many free in such a short amount of time. Eternally grateful.

Gio guides the Elemental Breathwork training with such ease and flow that I found it very easy to be present during the entire programme and really soak up all the knowledge and information being taught. Great attention was paid to the details and after taking the training I felt really equipped to step into my power almost immediately.

This is breathwork training on a high level and I am honoured to have learnt from someone so dedicated to their craft.

Gio basic changed my whole life with the Elemental Rhythm Breathwork training. I went from being a yoga teacher to discovering the hidden power of the breath. I have been amazed by the power and light in Gio’s breathwork but I am not the only one. I have been able to touch hearts and heads but mostly hearts. I am so grateful and happy that I did this. And I would recommend this training to anyone who is interested. If you’re still debating about it, please take a step further because this is much more than amazing, it will change your life.
