At Peak Flow®, we believe that breath training is key to living a longer, healthier and happier life, and we are committed to helping humans optimize their potential, one breath at a time.
When we discovered the leading costs of emergency room medical expenses were respiratory disorders (Chronic Hyperventilation, Sleep Apnea, Asthma, COPD, and Chronic Sinusitis), our team was driven to make an impact.
Our unique Peak Flow Method programs supports individuals, teams, organizations, and healthcare systems by developing new breathing habits that are scientifically proven to lead to healthier humans, enhanced performance, and increased mental wellness and physical fitness.
In short, we harness the power of science-based breath training to amplify and optimize the human experience.
Back in 2018, our CEO Lindsey Trubia was big wave surfing on Oahu’s North Shore, the one session that almost took her breath away … for good. After her near death experience Lindsey dove deep into free diving, leading her to an endless journey of breath. While working as a healthcare executive for more than 10 years, Lindsey followed her passion, studying different breath modalities until she hit her practitioner ceiling. She wanted to help more humans beyond what she could ever do herself. By applying her knowledge as an elite athlete, healthcare executive, and breath expert, Lindsey created Peak Flow® with the vision to bring breathing biomechanics and preventative respiratory therapy to the forefront of our sport, health and work industries. Ironically, the wave that almost took Lindsey’s breath continues its ripple effect on human breathing around the world.
Our co-founders, Lindsey Trubia and Dr. Rob Williams, started Peak Flow in 2021 after meeting at a Wim Hof Method instructors’ certification training in Colorado, USA’s Rocky Mountains. Their shared passion for helping humans live better lives led them to create Peak Flow®.

A Canadian-American currently living in Patagonia, Sarah Nguyen completed her Bachelor of Applied Science in Electronic Systems Engineering in snowy Canada before entering the aerospace industry in sunny southern California, where she was first exposed to the power of yoga and self-realization. After relocating to the luscious Pacific Northwest and continuing her climb to directing engineering business systems and operations, she delved into breathwork through Kriya Yoga and joined the startup board for Peak Flow’s retreat partner Trek Relief—a nonprofit organization that combines global adventure travel with community service projects. Both her engineering and nonprofit work led her across the globe to eventually land her at her current home in tranquil rural Chile. There she practices a conscious, eco-sustainable lifestyle on a permaculture farm—growing organic food, making almost everything from scratch, and producing nearly zero waste—complete with a glacial waterfall at cold plunge temperatures year-round. In her spare time, she indulges in trekking expeditions, bike touring, kayaking, and climbing. She believes that after nurturing a connection with nature and community, the next best thing is to leverage the power of technology to do good.
