Transformation Breathwork and Bio-Energetic Release Immersion

March 9-18 , 2019

“If you want to conquer the anxiety of life, live in the moment, live in the breath”
– Amit Ray

In today’s human experience we often live in a state of being that is filled with tensions in the body and mind, emotions that are hard to understand or resolve, and a disconnect from our breath system. Being able to breathe in a connected, full and rich way is essential and it’s how we get access to clarity and vitality in life! Open yourself up to the possibility of increasing your energy, restoring your nervous system and balancing your emotions so you can find more connection with yourself and others, harmony in life and unfold your potential. What you’ll learn during this immersion, you will be able take with you to implement and positively impact all areas of your lives.

In our time together we will explore Somatic Movement, Fascia Release, Yoga Practices, Dance, Sound healing, Meditations, Connection excercises and much more. You will discover many simple techniques to free yourself from emotional and physical blockages. We will take our time to dive deep in the Transformational Power of Breathwork. Transformation Breathwork (TB) is a tool that opens the pathway to increased happiness, presence, inner peace and positive energy; discharging yourself from stuck energies, unresolved experiences and emotions. It’s an experience that nourishes the soul and creates more freedom in the body-mind complex. Empower yourself on your healing journey by building your toolbox, by learning to open up your body and support your breath and nervous system.

Giving yourself time to focus on yourself and to immerse yourself in breathwork, will have profound restoring and detoxing effects. Teaching your body to naturally breathe more deeply, smoothly in a more relaxed but still energetic and balanced way.

Come and explore, over the course of 10 days, the power of breath to transform. Now is the time for positive change and energy in your life, because you know you deserve this.

Give yourself the gift of Breath and the Joy of this Spirit Journey.

*Become a Transformation Breathwork Facilitator. This retreat can be used as the first in a 4 part series of trainings, learn how to give TB sessions to others in a  safe and caring environment, more details upon request.*

Guest Faculty

David Lee

Meditation, QI Gong

David Lee teaches qigong, meditation and yoga with more than 30 years of practice and 4 years of teaching experience.

During the first half of his life he had a stressful, unhealthy and extremely sedentary career as a film editor in New York City. His wife became ill and eventually passed and David lost his career while trying to support her.  Eastern mindfulness practices were the glue that held his life together, allowing him to retain his optimism, sense of humor and zest for life through the hard times. After his daughter graduated college, he sold all of his possessions and got a one way ticket to Asia.

There he immersed himself in the yoga and qi gong  that revitalized him, deepening his practice. Heeding the call to teach and serve others. Today he teaches people of all ages a blend of ancient and modern techniques to increase their vitality with a combination of qi gong, yoga, and meditation designed to increase flexibility, mobility, and strength.

In 2015 she moved on to be Programming and Events Manager at The Yoga Barn in Ubud for 3 years and created a series of workshops called Epic Aging- The Art of Cultivating Timeless Radiance that are specifically designed for the over 40 crowd, focusing on yoga, nutrition, Ayurveda, and holistic health.
