Born with severe clubbed feet, Max Strom spent much of the first six years of his life with his feet confined in plaster casts and braces. Today, he is known for inspiring and impacting the lives of people from all walks of life, teaching breathing patterns and personal transformation worldwide. His method, Inner Axis, is a system of field-tested techniques that are known to produce immediate results, impacting the internal and emotional aspects of our life, as well as physical healing. Max has taught tens of thousands of students and trained several hundred teachers. His TEDx talk, Breathe to Heal, is approaching one million views on Youtube. Many know him for his two inspiring books: There is No APP for Happiness, addressing the challenge of finding meaning in the digital age, and A Life Worth Breathing, published in five languages and used as required reading in many yoga trainings. A dynamic speaker, Max has presented three TEDx events, keynote addresses at global government conferences, corporate conferences, wellness conferences, and many yoga festivals. Most recently he presented at the prestigious World Government Summit in Dubai, and the first Wellness Symposium in Saudi Arabia, and the Inner Peace Conference in Amsterdam.
