Erin Ortbals

I'm Erin, a breathwork facilitator and personal trainer based in Austin, Texas. You might know me from Plunge into Calm, my breathwork, meditation, and cold plunging events.

I'm passionate about helping people find joy and clarity in their lives. I believe that the breath is a powerful tool for transformation and that everyone can benefit from a regular breathwork practice.

I share periodic breathwork, health, and fitness insights in my newsletter and you can follow me 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 individuals learn how to exercise and move their bodies to achieve their goals. 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:

  • 4 week programming cycles
  • movement assessment
  • goal setting
  • customizable training plans based on your fitness level, goals, equipment availability and time constraints
  • instructional videos & form feedback
  • habit tracking
  • progress tracking
  • weekly breathwork exercises
  • daily contact/access to me
  • accountability
  • weekly 15 min check-in
  • 1 in person workout/ month (can add sessions available for additional charge)
