Glamping in ASHA tent

2 in a tent

We’re super excited about our new bell tents.  Furnished with 2 single mattresses.  They are lovely, nicely furnished, and so very close to nature.  You’re also welcome to use our shared showers and toilets, plus other facilities. Note: due to limited availability, these tents are charged for 2 people only (even if you are just one person).

Shared room

Each room with 3 single beds has it’s own private bathroom. The beds are typically a meter apart, and shared with the same sex.  3 of these rooms are in a cottage with their own kitchen, living room, and fireplace – and one is in the main house.  Pricing is per person.

Shared room

Frequently Asked Questions

General

Sorry, our accountant tells us this isn’t possible for a few different logistical reasons.  One of them being the high fees we would both have to pay on every transaction.

We only had one student signed up on our September pre-registration list when we realized we had made errors on the Breathcamp page when it was originally released. One way to support the loss was to cut September Breathcamp.

Students last year requested this so they could arrive on a weekend, and leave the following weekend – and therefore only have to take off one full week of work.

Yes, as a new member, alumni student, or mentor – you can do that.  Please note:  graduating students are required to stay the full course duration to graduate.

You’re welcome to come early, and stay late, according to ASHA availability.  We’re no longer offering actual packages, though you’re welcome to put together your own, ala carte – according to your preference.  This can include accommodation, food, and well-being sessions at our usual rates.  You can donate for this on site at ASHA.  Be welcome!

At ASHA we have 7 cats, and 2 dogs.  Given the sensitive nature of cats (and previous not so great experiences with dogs chasing them) leashes are required – and strictly enforced.   And no, our dogs are not on leashes as they are integrated with our cats. They know who the boss is, and we know where they poo.  We are surrounded by endless woods where your dog can roam free, though please keep them on a leash while at ASHA.  Also, please be mindful of cleaning up poo so no one steps in it!  There’s a 40 euro donation fee per pet.

Yes, though only in the main house, not in the rooms, or around the property.

We suggest picking up a TIM or Wind SIM card when you arrive Italy. Because ASHA is half hour away from a major town, it’s important to pick it up before coming to ASHA.

None of our camps offer this service.

Smoking is only permitted in the parking lot. Please do not smoke inside or outside of your room, in the common areas, or other areas of ASHA, and all camp locations.  And do consider that smoking isn’t a part of our culture, and not encouraged.

There are three restaurants in Castell’Azzara: La Tana d’Orso – which is our all time favorite, a pizzeria called La Rosa dei Venti, and in the summer there’s home restaurant called Febo. Also in nearby San Giovanni delle Contee(10 minutes drive away), there’s Osteria Maccalè – we love this place.  Also check out the nearby towns for more options (that are super beautiful) Pitigliano and Sorano.

Please keep in mind we are well-being center… this just isn’t the place for smoking, drugs, or alcohol. Like to have a glass of wine here and there?  Sure.  Though we trust you understand the nature of this work, and will not abuse the use of wine, just because it’s part of Italian culture (at ASHA, and in general while staying in the area).

It’s about 1.5 kilometers or a 20 minute very beautiful walk along a vast massive view of the valley.  It’s up a big hill from ASHA, so it’s for the fit-minded.  Otherwise, it’s a 5 minute drive.

There’s one grocery store – The Co-op – and veg store, and a Thursday morning produce/general stuff market as well. The Co-op does have some organic dry products.  We recommend bringing any speciality items. It’s basic in Castell’Azzara, not bad, though basic.

There are many hiking trails around ASHA! If you’re interested, we recommend checking with our community member Stuart, who knows pretty much all of them. Castell’Azzara is surrounded with beautiful villages, such as Pitigliano or Sorano. There are also many historical sites dating back to the Etruscan people, the ancestors whose spirits are still spreading blessings to the land around ASHA.

Kids are welcome at ASHA, and a huge part of our vision.  There’s plenty of space for them to roam around in a safe environment. Please be responsible for them at all times, including their clean up in communal spaces. Kids can only stay in private accommodation with their guardian (tent, glamping, camper, or private cottage) – not in shared accommodation with other students.  Kids under 10 eat and stay for free. Kids 11 and over are charged for food and accommodation at public pricing, with a 20% discount.  Attentive kids are welcome to join Breathcamp at the discretion of the trainer and facilitator of each session.  Babysitting services are also available.  Reach out to info@asha.global for more information, and to receive a special 20% coupon code.  This offer applies for each kid in a family.

On this page, below the FAQ’s, please see the section “How To Get To ASHA” – for full travel info.

Thank you for the question.  You are so very welcome, at exactly the stage you are at.  You’ll be surrounded by graduates of Breathwork, who’s speciality is people just like you, just where you’re at.  So, know the content and care is for two groups – both advanced (our graduates), and the general public, who are at varying stages of experience (many breathing for the first time).  Just know, you’ll be held and taken care of in a beautiful way from the very start of your breathwork journey! Exciting!

We serve lunch everyday, at the following prices (and brunch on the weekends):

Drop-in Guest:  15

ASHA Guests:  13

Community:  8

No, sorry that’s not possible.  We only accept students staying at ASHA so we can manage our capping points.  This ensures we will have enough actual places for breathers in our group rooms, that we can provide meals with our kitchen/dining capacity, and in general offer a camp that isn’t too full or crowded. 

If we have space, yes.  It’s 90 euros per day, including 3 meals and use of our facilities.  Most of the camps are filling up, so we cannot take advance reservations. You’re welcome to reach out to us 2 weeks before the start date of a camp, and we can let you know if it’s full or not.  Please note:  graduating students are required to stay on site to qualify for graduation.

Well-Being Sessions

Life Direction Coaching & Breathwork Private with Anthony, private Intuitive Readings with Amy, Sound Healing, Massage, and More.  If you’d like to book with Anthony and Amy, we suggest booking asap as space is limited.

Our online booking system is coming soon.  Once you’ve booked your session, you can make payment at ASHA with Luna or Gemma.  

What should I bring?

Extra costs

Your stay is all-inclusive, except for:

COVID Compliance​

PLEASE ARRIVE WITH A NEGATIVE ANTIGEN OR PCR TEST. THIS IS MANDATORY TO ENTER BREATHCAMP.

We recommend securing travel insurance to cover Covid regulations, changes, etc.

Because the situation is constantly changing, we will update any requirements for testing, etc., closer to the date.

We recommend bringing your own yoga mat for safety.

Also, please allow for enough travel time for antigen/PCR testing if required – so you don’t miss Orientation on the first day of camp – or your flight upon departure.

We do not offer refunds. 

Depending on the circumstances and availability, it may be possible to attend a Breathcamp different date.

Should we cancel Breathcamp, we will refund the full amount, minus currency exchange and bank platform fees we may be charged.
