People with health issues or poor health (low energy, GI problems, insomnia, pains and aches, etc.) and even serious conditions (such as asthma, sinusitis, epilepsy, heart disease, diabetes, early cancer, etc.) or those people who are searching for super-health (having much better health than they have now) are especially encouraged to apply.

There is an additional requirement and health challenge for you (after training): Having easy normal breathing (with more than 60 s for the body oxygen test in the morning) indicating breathing no more than the medical norm and having excellent physical health.
The last requirement (normal breathing with over 60 s for the body oxygen) is also the main goal of 2- or 3-month training (see below).
New NormalBreathing projects (areas of your future work)

Executive assistants will manage some parts of the whole business (books, or online learning courses, or websites, or video production, or workshops, etc.) and could earn percentage of revenue.
Two-week trial period or probation
We'll cover your relocation (travelling in both directions), accommodation, and meals for this two-week trial period. You will work for 20 hours per week. The purpose of this trial period or probation is to test your skills to work, exercise, and practice breathing retraining. You will be paid at 10-12 euro or 12-14 USD for simple work during this probation.
Self-discipline and punctuality are also required: it is better to be 5 min earlier than 2 min late for meetings, appointments, trainings, and work especially when these activities involve more than 2 people.
How to achieve 60 s morning CP (your health challenge)
Option 1. You can achieve this health state (normal breathing with more than 60 s for the body oxygen test in the morning and 24/7) yourself using any methods and techniques including those provided in DIY Learning Modules of the NormalBreathing site.
Option 2 (2- or 3-month training with others). You can participate in breathing retraining classes that will be provided for members of the NormalBreathing Team during your internship and for trainees (who want to become teachers). These classes include about 25 hours of teaching lessons from Level 2 (to get 30+ s morning CP) and Advanced courses (to get 60+ s MCP).
Our experience with 1,000s of students indicate that it is impossible to achieve ideal physical health without having 2 hours of daily physical exercise, 1-2 hours of breathing exercises (similar to yoga pranayama and meditation), and lifestyle changes (sleep, diet, etc.). You can find more details about lifestyle changes in Learning Modules on this website. Your daily involvement in physical exercise, or, at least, a desire to more forward in this area, up to 2 hours per day, is necessary in order to apply. (We teach how to enjoy and crave for exercise naturally while getting more time from naturally shortened sleep!)
Having normal breathing and more than 60 s of body oxygen automatically provides very short and effective sleep (less than 5 hours naturally); desire or craving to do 2-3 hours of physically exercise daily; amazing clarity of mind; disappearance of addictions; and many other physical and spiritual benefits described, for example, in ancient yoga texts and yoga books written many decades ago.
Details of 2- or 3-month training (internship)
In order to work with the NormalBreathing team, you need to experience real health. Then you will get the job and will be able write about health. Hence, your main goal during the internship (2-3 months) is to slow down own breathing to the norm with over 60 s for the body oxygen test 24/7.
During the whole internship, you will be paid hourly for your work (the location/conditions are to be
discussed, all transportation expenses are paid both ways), while working for 15-20 hours per week plus having 1-2 hours of training per day (related to your online work and breathing retraining). Your income will cover your housing and meals.
The paid work will be simple (editing, writing, video creation, etc.). The intention and primary goal of this training is to teach you extra skills (1-2 hours per day). There will be 2 types of lessons during this extra time:
- teaching basics of SEO, creation of web pages, video making, and other online skills
- lessons related to your physical health in order to achieve easy relaxed normal breathing with over 60 seconds for your body oxygenation.
Here are some common and expected effects related to high body oxygenation that you will get.

Note that, while breathing retraining requires some time investments (mainly during initial stages of learning and progress), you will get shorter sleep later (4-5 hours are common for advanced students with 60+ s CP). This will allow you to have the same or improved time availability for your other activities. All people who acheived this health state can testify that this was the best time and energy investment they made in their lives for their own health.
You may grasp main ideas of breathing retraining from the Homepage of this site that includes 2 images and large table representing results of over 100 clinical studies.
Important. You will surely be provided with 6-month contract (at least), if you successfully complete this internship: relax your breath, muscles and mind so that to have over 60 s for the body oxygen test 24/7.
