Breathe was conceptualized with the goal to be able to provide the tools and knowledge to transform individuals into managers of their own health. We believe that every person resonates differently to modalities and paths to obtain well-being. Our aspiration is to provide a full palette of ancient wisdom healing techniques offered in their most authentic and undiluted form from around the world. These offerings include energetic and physical therapies as well as innovative holistic treatments.
Unwavering from the desire to create a healing space that differs drastically from other wellness or yoga resorts, no external investors or big impersonal work crews were involved keeping the spirit of the space pure. Our founder personally designed and physically built every aspect from the ground up to ensure her passion, attention to detail and loving intention resides throughout the retreat. Breathe's Zen inspired structures envelop an Eastern spirit that places the importance in organic and raw materials which transforms into harmonious healing energy. With a background career in conventional Western medicine she understands its benefits and role but ironically learned through her own medical difficulties and illness how Western medicine fails people in many ways. Through alternative methods she was able to heal herself and realized her purpose was to assist others find their healing. Our founder has spent her life traveling and studying with gifted healers around the world, seeking to learn the ways of the ancient traditional healing arts from each culture from the source with the hopes of absorbing the wisdom and techniques to preserve the truth and help others in the future. Female created, designed, built and operated Breathe offers an intimate nurturing experience for guests.
