Erin Ortbals

I'm Erin, a breathwork facilitator and personal trainer based in Austin, Texas. I help people find a healthier, more joyful, and compassionate way of living. You might know me from Plunge into Calm, my breathwork, meditation, and cold plunging events.

My mission is to facilitate self-awareness, self-compassion and authentic human connection integrated through holistic practices in both one-on-one mentorships and group settings.

I share inspiration and breath practices in my weekly newsletter and on Instagram.

Work with Me

Private and Corporate Events

I hold regular breathwork events in the Austin area. These events are a great way to experience the power of breathwork in a group setting. I'm also available to host private events for your group or organization. Contact me for more information on:

  • Community breathwork, meditation, and cold plunge events. Check out my upcoming events to learn more
  • Virtual or in-person breathwork workshops & experiences for teams and organizations
  • Hire me to facilitate your next retreat or gathering

Personal Training and Coaching

My goal is to help you meet your fitness goals, while also building more self-compassion in the process. I want my clients to fall in love with movement and find a lifestyle that makes them feel healthy, confident, and strong. I use an instructional practice called Scaffolding, where a coach gradually removes guidance and support as individuals learn and become more competent. When you work with me, a typical program may look like:

  • Movement assessment
  • Goal setting
  • Customizable training plans based on fitness level, goals, equipment availability and time constraints
  • 4-6 week programming cycles
  • Instructional video & form feedback
  • Habit tracking
  • Progress tracking
  • Weekly recorded breathwork exercises
  • Daily access to me
  • Weekly 15 minute check-in
  • One in-person workout with me per month (can add additional sessions for charge)
