Alchemy Student Graduation 

March 12 – 16,  2020

Student Registration
After the huge success of BreathCamp Barcelona in October 2019, we have found an incredibly beautiful venue for our March BreathCamp in Bali, Ubud.

 

Each time we do a BreathCamp, we are reminded of the ‘why’ that motivates us to do this wonderful work. Join your peers, colleagues, Mentors and Masters of Breath as we co-create what will be one of the most powerful experiences of a lifetime, as you come together for the final stage of training: Graduation.

 

With limited onsite accommodation available, we urge you to book as soon as possible, and if you are coming to graduate please be sure to book before the end of January to guarantee your place. Alchemy of Breath students and mentors alike are welcomed to this extraordinary 5 day camp.

 

The Alchemy Student Graduation retreat has been highly curated to offer you the most holistic approach to healing and learning available.

YOUR STUDENT BREATHCAMP EXPERIENCE INCLUDES:

  • Daily breathwork and education sessions: Unlock the power of conscious breathing as you already know it. Gain insights and awareness from holding space for your peers, from angeling support, and your personal breathwork practice. Deepen your knowledge with further workshops relating to your practice, including bodywork, appropriate touch, boundaries, and ethical practice, and increase your level of understanding tenfold as we work in person. Release any final unresolved blocks in your work, and become embodied in your expanded awareness.

  • Constructive, reflective feedback: Enjoy daily feedback circles to help you grow exponentially in self-awareness and inform your practice.

  • Opportunity to make changes in your life: Using fun exercises, deep inquiry, and the breath, learn what it feels like to work as a team with your fellow students and discover your unique way of offering the breath. Get traction where you need it most, and transform relationships into vibrant co-creativity in this loving, supportive, community of practice. 

  • Daily yoga/meditation sessions: An essential practice to harmonize the body, mind, and spirit, these daily yoga/meditation sessions are a crucial tool in the development of self-awareness and healing process. 

Put 9 months of hard work and commitment to your studies into practice with this 5 days of intense programme. With the guidance our teachers and team offer, you’ll develop the confidence to move from student to professional and offer breathwork to the world. Remember that first spark of interest, the moment when you first heard the call? Now you get to see the fruits of your inspiration become manifest. Congratulations!

Pablo Castro

Master of Breath / Trainer

Pablo Castro is a world-wide traveler currently living in Bali, Indonesia where he offers weekly breathes, workshops, retreats and more. He has been with Alchemy of Breath for over two years, sharing the breath, as well as serving as a teacher for their Facilitator Training. Pablo believes in a gentle approach to transformation, recognizing the importance and potency of feeling safe and honoring one’s personal journey. He uses the breath as a way to navigate his internal world. He has discovered that when we embrace our shadow, develop a relationship with our inner child and find our center, we regain our own ability to truly take care of ourselves and hold space for whatever comes up.

Pablo also works with the healing element of the water, sharing a water therapy called Wataflow which works with breath and over/underwater movements.

Vaclav

“This experience brought me a clear perception of the reality of my current situation. It gave me structure and calm. I let go of the ever-present control, feeling spacious, my outer and inner worlds together: the perfect ground to make important decisions and roll on light-heartedly with life. If someone thinks about giving it a try…just do it, don’t hesitate! Thanks to all the breathers, thanks to Anthony…you are my family”

Sandra

“It was like travelling to another world, one I can come to whenever I want. I felt a vibration, a relaxation and much more a state of peace. A special place where I don’t need to protect myself from anyone. I’ve been on an astral voyage!”

Richard

“Such a beautiful trip. Went so deep every time. I dropped right into my heart when you mentioned: “I believe in me”. Funny, I had never thought about believing in myself before. Now I will hold that dearly and I wish the same for everyone else. Thank you Anthony.”

Sergio

“This is such an opportunity to connect to my self and to deal with so many emotional things. I feel all the things I’m attached to which have no purpose. All the fears and traumas that I have faced, I now feel blissful in the most complete way. The breath makes me focus on my true self and all my potential. Thank you all for the sharing, the love and the commitment.”
