Our Story

Breathwork Africa is a social enterprise and community network founded by Dr Ela Manga when she saw the potential of conscious breathing as a fundamental pillar in the practice of integrative medicine. Ela felt inspired to share this tool with every person who was open to tapping into their most powerful free and available inner resource and natural technology.


Since then, with the steadfast support of Marj Murray, Simon Kehagias and a growing team of Pneumanitarians, Breathwork Africa has grown in depth and breadth. It is manifesting its vision  through the art and science of Pneumanity™ breathwork as a tool of self-empowerment, healing and transformation. Through individual and group sessions, practitioner training, talks and workshops we are meeting a wide audience in Africa and globally.


We support children, students, business leaders, entrepreneurs, NGO’s, creatives, activists, educators, athletes - anyone who is committed to physical and mental health, personal growth, wellbeing and greater self-awareness .


Pneumanity™  Breathwork

Pneumanity™ is an approach to conscious breathing that is inspired by an ancient vision of the future, held and shared by the Breathwork Africa community.


It is an integrative and embodied approach to breathwork that is honouring of each individual as a unique expression of their history, character and spirit. It draws on the vast scope of practices that are guided by ancient wisdom and grounded in modern science.


Pneumanity™  is  adaptable, simple, safe and most importantly, accessible to all people regardless of age, culture, nationality, race, gender identity or sexual orientation, religion and life circumstances. It guides every person to their own resources held within their body and breath.


It is borne from the words ‘Pneuma’ and ‘Humanity’, the essence of Ubuntu and the universal life force that weaves through the heart of humankind.
