Imagine arriving at this amazing beach

Experiencing a truly unforgettable Filipino welcome and 7-days in paradise.

Where together we'll explore and experience... 


Filipino Blessings

Our opening ceremony will be led by Batara Gat Baya, a traditional Filipino healer and mediator of the spiritual and physical worlds. A beautiful welcome to the Island and an opportunity to connect with its traditions. 

Breathing Science

We'll dive deep into the science behind our breathing, exploring the differences between respiration, and ventilation, understanding what's going on biochemically, biomechanically and Psychophysiologically, and perhaps for the first time, you'll experience a personalised capnography session to test your baseline CO2 levels prior to any other breathwork activities.  

Movement & Mindfulness

We'll explore the very simple act of movement but in a more embodied, connected and playful way, keeping our bodies and minds young.

Mindful awareness enables us to be in the moment, with a sense of calm and alertness. All while paying purposeful attention.Mindfulness regulates your nervous system by flushing out stress hormones creating balance in body and mind.

Nervous System Mastery & Flow States

Something we're never told we can learn to regulate but by doing so we can alter our experience of life. We'll learn how to use many different 'levers' to shift our state. 

We'll explore Flow... described as "when you are deeply immersed in an activity." It’s the secret to happiness, according to psychologist Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi, who coined the concept.

Sleep Science

Exploring the science of sleep we'll begin to understand how this along with our breath impacts our ability to focus, concentrate and perform. Gaining valuable insights into how we can improve and optimise our sleep patterns.

Circular Breathing

Through Circular breathing and the practice of Vivation, we'll experience the power of our breath, and the expansiveness of our bodies, discovering what it means to integrate our feelings in the present moment and to meet life with less resistance and judgement.


What does it mean to embody something? We'll explore the feeling of embodiment through each one of our experiences over these 7-days and move towards a fuller, richer more authentic experience of life.

Filipino Massage

Receive a 60-minute full body massage to promote deep restoration, release tension and relax fully. 

This holistic healing practice has been passed down through the generations in the Philippines.


Exploring and experiencing the uncertain and unknown stimulate growth, enjoyment and connection, so we'll be taking time to see what this magical island has to offer.

And so much more!
