About Michael Grant White - LMBT  -  NC License #1724

Author of Secrets of Optimal Natural Breathing

“Your breathing will be stronger, smoother, bigger, greater, deeper, easier, and better coordinated. Breathing really is a metaphor for life"

Optimal Breathing (tm) is a series of safe painless directed techniques, education, ergonomics and exercises.  These develop proper breathing coordination, optimize breathing volume, oxygenation and cleansing power of the lungs, and balance autonomic nervous system function. 

Michael Grant White is one of the most unusual teachers in the world today. Devoted over thirty years to breathing development.  Mike is one of those rare individuals whose destiny was revealed to him at a very young age by being asked to sing for his grammar school student body.  Subsequent physical abuse left him unable to sing and what followed was a 40 - year quest to regain his singing voice and inner sense of wholeness.  Learning what did NOT work was almost as beneficial as learning what DID work.

Many years ago I was swimming with the sharks as a commercial real estate broker. I did very well but I also pulled a lot of metaphoric shark’s teeth out of my backside. The stress and competition was excruciating but I knew of no other way. I had not found my breath, my inner directed sense of peace, wholeness and personal power.

Salesmen in the company I worked with had settled disputes by meeting on a vacant lot to fight each other.   I didn’t know how much hated that business until my visit to Tahiti for two weeks got me in touch with part of myself that only extended quiet or catastrophe seems to allow. I really understood how swimming with the sharks was not very nurturing or satisfying. I began to look elsewhere for ways of self-expression and healthier, more lasting ways of relating to others.

Away from the real estate shark tank for years, I began to remember the pure joy of being alive; Of days in my youth when I was happy, safe, full of new experiences and excited about the prospect of each new day.  Excited again about learning and sharing new and useful information. Long before I’d ever heard of and come to admire author speaker John Bradshaw, I began a quest to reunite with what I call my inner eleven year old.

I promised myself that I was not going to let anything get in the way of my path towards wholeness, passion and purpose. I estimate that in terms of the money I made plus the deals I let pass me by that I spent more than three million dollars on personal growth programs. 

That is quite an investment isn’t it? This investment of mine has a return and that was to help millions of people find their breath and all the health, vitality, and life extending benefits that stem from that. Something that eluded me for decades.

Ever hear or say the expressions "get a life"? "Take a breath"? "Breath IS life"



Michael's students include a wide range of individuals, including business executives, personal and spiritual growth seekers, amateur and professional athletes, speakers and singers.

Current Research

Today, Mike is working with some of our Nation's top physicians, behavioral and alternative health specialists to expand the use of Optimal Breathingsm in new and exciting areas of therapy, sports performance and personal growth. 

Originally was designed as a personal growth development technique.  Optimal Breathing’s realizes a much wider potential for accelerating many self-healing processes as well as being an important adjunct to almost any therapy modality.

Just as Optimal Breathingsm removes the barriers that prevent vocalists from reaching their performance potential, it can remove those barriers in all of us, allowing us to achieve our maximum potential in whatever it is we do. Optimal Breathingsm has shown astonishing healing factors in various health conditions, and further studies are being conducted using these techniques.  http://www.breathing.com/results.htm




I believe that breathing is generic to all humanity and definitely non-sectarian. I honor all forms of spirituality. We all breathe the same air and in the same way. 

Breath is Life


Mike and a very special friend.  John Bradshaw.
