The Usman Institute 

Breathe Right Live Free

The Usman Institute 

Breath Control, Critical Thinking, Peace.

The Usman Institute's mission is to empower you. The UI teaches the fundamental tools for healing physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually––for real. On your own terms

The heart of the Institute's approach is breath and critical thinking. 


Breath is the tool to rejuvenate physically, to control thoughts and emotions, to connect to one's healthiest, happiest Self. Breath is both life and the key to life.

Critical thinking is to question. Question our self, the world, and the stories we tell. To think critically is to think about structures, organizing principles, and relations. Critical thinking is key to awareness. Awareness is key to change. 

How to use breath control?

The Usman Institute teaches principles for a healthy and peaceful life. Each session offers a lifetime of tools to keep and use at your own pace. Rather than treating a symptom, you access the solutions to strengthen from within, to empower, to heal, to experience yourself. You connect the dots between mind and body by using breath and thoughts.


The Usman Institute offers one-on-one sessions and group classes in breathing, meditation, relaxation, nutrition, critical thinking, detachment, and mysticism. The Institute also offers tailored consulting for organizations and exclusive coaching sessions.   

Everyone welcomed. The UI techniques are universal. If you can breathe, think, and be, you've got all you need. The UI gives you the tools to get where you want to be. 

The Usman Institute seeks to make its programs accessible to all. If you are experiencing a financial hardship, please message us via the contact form.
