Who we are

We are friends, colleagues, and certified GTT facilitators. Our collaboration is based on our love for Holotropic Breathwork™ and for each other. In 2015, we founded Holotropic Hungary with the aim to introduce Holotropic Breathwork™ in Hungary.

Minh Tu Nguyen

founder, facilitator

Dentist, researcher, art therapist, folktale therapist, autogenic training instructor, Holotropic Breathwork™ facilitator, psychodrama assistant and a trainee Somatic Experiencing® Practitioner. 

I was born in Vietnam and have been living in Hungary since childhood. One of the hallmarks of my work is a sensitive, supportive presence and a committed, respectful accompaniment of those who turn to me on their inner journey. I employ guided imagery, body-oriented, dramatic, and expressive art therapy methods. To me, Holotropic Breathwork is a powerful, transformative, yet, one of the gentlest methods, which has enabled me to reconnect with my own internal (healing) power.

Physician, researcher, hypnotherapist, psychodrama practitioner, Holotropic Breathwork™ facilitator. 

I work with compassionate presence, expanded states of consciousness and body awareness methods.

In addition to its simplicity and beauty, I see Holotropic Breathwork™ as a catalyst for individual and collective growth. My holotropic process has taught me to trust the power and gifts of my inner wisdom.

Melinda Várfi


Holotropic Breathwork facilitator

Melinda Várfi has worked as a teacher and counselor, but for the last ten years she has been facilitating the connection of community energies and the development of participatory methods. She has been practicing Holotropic Breathwork™ since 2015 and hopes that more people will choose this practice as a way of self-discovery, while wholeheartedly accepting themselves.

Anna Wagner


Clinical psychologist, neuropsychologist, Holotropic Breathwork™ facilitator in training. 

I have acquired my personal and professional knowledge in various somato-psychotherapeutic and psychodynamically oriented methods. As a neuropsychologist, I worked for many years in rehabilitation. In this work, one of the most important lessons for me was to practice patience and respect for life, as well as experiencing that we can only achieve anything together, with joint efforts. In my work, the focus is on relationships, finding security and trust in myself and in connection with others. 

For me, Holotropic Breathwork™ combines all of these aspects, and I consider it an integrative tool that can support healing from as many directions as possible.

Once you start approaching your body with curiosity rather than with fear, everything shifts.
