Frequently Asked Questions


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.

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.

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!

You’re welcome to come early, and stay late, according to ASHA availability.  There are 3-day pre- and post-camp packages available with special programs.

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 in the main house and Dharma Den, though 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 New Member 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 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.

No, sorry that’s not possible.  Graduating students, mentors, and alumni are required to stay on site to qualify for graduation, unless they are already living as a community member around Castell’Azzara, for 6 months out of the year.  Community members pay the tent rate for students. New Members are also required to stay on-site.
