Anthony Abbagnano & Amy Rachelle, founders of Alchemy of Breath and ASHA
If you’ve chosen to attend our Italian base, you’ll join *Alchemy of Breath and ASHA founder Anthony Abbagnano, his wife and co-founder Amy Rachelle Abbagnano, Graduating and New Students, Master Practitioners, Trainers, Assistant Trainers, Mentors, and our Team of Well-Being Facilitators – as we embark upon an epic hero’s journey, unique to who you are, and where you’re going.
ASHA is the cornerstone of an initiative to regenerate and revitalise our local village into a thriving Intentional Community. Our pilot project in Italy is dedicated to ethically, environmentally, and socially responsible living and learning.
ASHA Tuscany is the physical manifestation of an active online community of over 100,000 people who seek a place to land. After three decades of exploration, investigation and involvement in community building – at this pivotal moment in history – Anthony and Amy founded in 2020 the perfect location to ground their vision for a new way of living.

Be guided and held by our trainers and mentors as you journey deeper into the power of the breath. Benefit from our curriculum that is the same at all Breathcamp locations, along with the care and expertise of our trainers.
This camp is held at Harmony Ridge, which is nestled in the woods of the Tahoe National Forest 5 miles from Nevada City. Consisting of the main lodge, small and large conference rooms, 9 spacious suites, and beautifully kept grounds, gardens and orchard, the property is a haven away from home.
Our FOREST environment and beautifully maintained gardens and orchard provide a relaxing respite from the world.
Our LOCATION is ten minutes from historic downtown Nevada City with an abundance of entertainment, and dining.
The venue features an open-air yoga shala, where we will practice breathwork, and hold classes. It overlooks the jungle and is complete with gorgeous hardwood coconut floors and a thatched roof. Our pool, infrared sauna, and gardens are immersed in nature, and yours to use exclusively.
This Breathcamp is led by our long-time Master Trainer Pablo, and his team of mentors and angels. In this 9-day retreat, be deeply supported in letting go, and stripping away what no longer serves you. Release physically, emotionally, and even spiritually as our team holds you, and guides you on your learning journey.
Whether you’re a graduating student, or new to breathwork, blossom your inner knowing, and perhaps even find a greater sense of self-care, purpose and service.
Drugs! ESPECIALLY FLYING INTO BALI.
They are strictly forbidden. Violating this and getting caught can bring dire consequences, even for small quantities. Just don’t do it.
Breathcamp in one word: WOW! I loved every single moment of breathcamp. The learning and growth was beyond, personally as well as on my journey to becoming a breathwork facilitator. It truly felt like a deep dive into the breath, where all our online experiences accumulated in one incredible experience.
Attending BreathCamp has profoundly changed my life! I met the most amazing people, accepting every messy bit of me and showering me with love and support. The sessions and classes helped me to connect with my intuition on a very deep and safe level. My own practice and space holding reached a new depth. I highly recommend the whole experience, it will push you forward in your processes in a way you wouldn't expect.
Yes! Please keep in mind that due to the nature of our work, intimacy is usually at an all time high. Please don’t mistake that as an emotional or sexual invitation. Be considerate of others personal space, and don’t assume anything. And… please keep sexuality in general out of the equation unless you arrived as a couple. Together, let’s protect a safe space for everyone.
Absolutely. We suggest setting your own boundaries, and clearly communicating them as needed. You’re also welcome to reach out to the mentors and team if you need support. Also, most of our locations are deep in nature, so take your space as needed!
Yes at ASHA! Contact the venue directly at other locations. You can do that in 2 ways at ASHA… either in our new 3-5 day pre/post Breathcamp programs, or ala carte (book when/as you like). At ASHA we recommend pre-booking space, as it’s high season in the summer and space tends to sell out quickly.
Once signed up, you’ll receive our welcome package, complete with the program guide, schedule, and more information.
We finish after lunch, around 2 pm on the final day.
Whether a new or old student, we only accept reservations for the entire duration of the event. Sorry, though we cannot offer exceptions.
Potentially. Book together to stay together at the same time. If you’re booking last minute we may not be able to accommodate your request but we promise to do the absolute best we can!
We’re sorry but due to high demand, your reservation is only confirmed once payment has been made and we cannot hold rooms for you.
Alchemy of Breath reserves the right to change the order of events, faculty and staff.
