What is Breathwork?
Breathwork—deep circular conscious breathing— is a fast-track healing modality that helps the breather moves past the stored traumas straining our energetic bodies, past pain, limited beliefs that shield us from living as our true divine beings.
Within a ceremonial container; the use of smudging; sage and palo Santo, tribal music, bass drums, earth chimes, pure essential oils, rattles and sound instruments; these tools help deepen the Breathwork process and journey.
While a Breathwork ceremony might surface and bring up powerful emotions, old trauma or memories- within a safe environment and ceremonial space- these surfacing limits are released indefinitely with the strength of Sacred Breath.
Breathwork heals your relationship with Self and inner child.
Breathwork can at times be uncomfortable, difficult, but ultimately blissful and transcending.
Breathe your way back to your Divine You:)

Teacher: Sally Francis
Sally Francis, once a burnt-out and over-worked events co-ordinator, is now a full-time nomadic yoga teacher, student, Thai massage therapist and musician, intent on finding joy, light and love in life!
She first came to yoga hoping to gain fitness, strength, flexibility, and a little stress relief from a busy life. Seven years later her relationship with yoga has developed – she has also discovered the gifts of clarity, insight, stillness of mind, compassion and loving-kindness by taking her practice beyond the asana alone.
In her daily life, Sally struggled with anxiety and panic attacks, but found the courage to make a change, to choose a different path. In 2017 she quit her high-pressured job, sold her house and packed everything up to complete her 200hr YTT in India. There she found that a dedicated daily practice of linking breath and movement, body and mind was magically healing. Her negative self-perceptions started to shift from ‘I can’t’ to the positive ‘I can, and have already achieved so much’.
From India, Sally’s path took her through much of South East Asia, travelling, teaching, and always continually learning. She is currently based in Goa, and teaches vinyasa, ashtanga and yin yoga, and guides pranayama, meditation and chanting. As a Thai massage therapist, she aims to help people to heal themselves by drawing their awareness back into their own bodies, to connect with their inner healing energy, and to the wider universal love that unites us all. She continues to develop her interests and studies, moving towards a more conscious way of life, focusing on gratefulness for the small things.
For Sally, yoga really is a way of life, and has transformed how she views herself and the world, finding lightness and joy, and a new appreciation for all living beings and the amazing natural wonders around us. Although self-love is still a daily challenge, she now considers herself a happy, beautiful soul!
Breathwork is a powerful modality that helps us fall back to our divine self. In the weeks prior to the retreat, take some time for self care; journal, meditate, eat a diet that benefits your body, walk in nature, enjoy some yoga classes, take some time for solitude and reflection.
Some good books are Warrior Goddess Training, and anything by Brene Brown.
