is a global speaker, teacher, and author who acts as a bridge to connect people with their inner axis and thereby build better relationships with others.

My mission is to help people remember who they are and what they are capable of and to provide tools that will empower them to live a more meaningful life.

Many know him for his two inspiring books: A Life Worth Breathing, now published in five languages, and There is No APP for Happiness, his most recent title addressing the challenge of finding meaning in the digital age. Max Strom’s interdisciplinary method, Inner Axis, is a system of field-tested techniques that produce immediate results. It is an innovative method that incorporates well-being exercises, breath-work, and breath-based yoga movement to generate personal health and growth. Because of its success with individuals across the world, Inner Axis is now being adopted by corporations as a sustainable mindfulness program, organizations that want to not only be successful, but healthy, and to make a meaningful difference in the world. Among Max’s recent speaking appearances were three TEDx events and a keynote speech on ethics in business at a Fortune 500 corporation. His articles and interviews have appeared in print, online media, radio, and television around the globe. As an in-demand speaker, Max has presented his method at the first Wellness Symposium in Saudi Arabia, The Inner Idea Conference, the Happinez Festival in the Netherlands, The Singularity University in the Silicon Valley, The Sea Island resort, as well as many yoga conferences.
