Welcome to BreathCamp!

For the very first time in New Zealand, Alchemy Of Breath is offering an immersive Breathwork experience like no other.

We begin in Auckland at the School Of Modern Meditation for Seeds Of Alchemy, a full 2 days to explore the Fundamentals of Breathwork.

A few days later we head north to the beautiful Antara Retreat for BreathCamp. Surrounded by natural beauty and a community dedicated to finding harmony through giving and connecting with others, we breathe together for inner healing, peace and Papatuanuku.
We welcome you to join us.

Antara Retreat is a beautiful earthbrick homestay set amongst organic gardens, streams and native bush one hour north of Auckland. A place to connect with others and enjoy living in harmony with Papatuanuku. Antara offers their retreat space freely in service of the health and wellbeing of all people. 


Join us for an immersive breathwork retreat in the stunning landscapes of New Zealand this April 2023. Led by experienced student facilitators completing their training, this life-changing experience will help you tap into the transformative power of your breath, by unlocking your inner wisdom to release limiting beliefs and cultivate a deep sense of inner peace. 

Enjoy daily breathwork sessions, yoga, and meditation as you immerse yourself in the stunning natural beauty of Antara Retreat Centre. Imagine being surrounded by authentic, empathic people who support you in feeling safe enough to simply be you – without pretence, embarrassment, or shame. 

That’s what an Alchemy of Breath retreat is all about.

Learn new skills that give you confidence in yourself and your relationships.  Bring your strengthened personal power into your every day life, personal to professional.

Spaces are limited, so book your spot now for an unforgettable journey of self-discovery and personal growth.

Our BreathCamps embrace you in a family environment that supports the growth and changes you want to make in life. They help you to fulfil the greatness of who you are, so you can know yourself better, and perhaps even consciously step into why you’re alive in these particular times. 

No matter where you are in your breathwork journey – a newbie, an advanced breather, a graduate, or alumni – join us to further your exploration and move forward with more  self-compassion, forgiveness and care.

Our tailored programs range from an introduction to breathwork for newbies, from deepening your why, to highlighting special classes for graduating students, that can’t be done online.

Full day passes are available on Thursday 27, Friday 28 and Saturday 29 April from 10.30am, we will finish at 5pm.

Please bring a yoga mat, blanket/s, a low pillow and anything else you need to lie comfortably on a wooden floor for Breathwork. 

A drink bottle, journal and pen are also recommended.

Wear comfortable layers of clothing you can remove or add to. It is hard to predict the temperature in April in New Zealand’s Autumn though averages 18 – 20 degrees celsius during the day and cooling to around 10 degrees celsius at night.  Active Breathwork can also bring about significant temperature changes so once again, layers are best. 

Please respect that Antara Retreat is alcohol and drug free which suits the nature of Breathwork and the wellbeing of our community. 

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 new members, 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!
