filipino blessings

Our opening ceremony will be led by Batara Gat Baya, a traditional Filipino healer and mediator of the spiritual and physical worlds. A beautiful welcome to the island and an opportunity to connect with its traditions.

Batara will also be available for personalised 1:1 sessions throughout the week.

breathing science

We'll dive deep into the science behind our breathing, exploring the differences between respiration and ventilation, understanding what's going on biochemically, biomechanically and psychophysiologically

 

You'll also experience a personalised capnography session to test your baseline CO2 levels prior to any other breathwork activities.  

Movement + Mindfulness

movement + mindfulness

We'll explore the very simple act of movement but in a more embodied, connected and playful way, keeping our bodies and minds young.

Mindful awareness enables us to be in the moment with a sense of calm and alertness, all while paying purposeful attention. Mindfulness regulates your nervous system by flushing out stress hormones creating balance in body and mind.

FLOW STATE

nervous system mastery + flow states

This is something that we're never told that we can learn to regulate - but by doing so, we can alter our experience of life. We'll learn how to use many different 'levers' to shift our state. 

We'll explore 'flow'... described as "when you are deeply immersed in an activity." It’s the secret to happiness, according to psychologist Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi, who coined the concept.

Sleep Science

sleep science

Exploring the science of sleep, we'll begin to understand how this, along with our breath, impacts our ability to focus, concentrate and perform.

 

Gain valuable insights into how we can improve and optimise our sleep patterns.

Circular Breathing

circular breathing

Through circular breathing and the practice of Vivation, we'll experience the power of our breath and the expansiveness of our body, discovering what it means to integrate our feelings in the present moment and to meet life with less resistance and judgement.

Embodiment

What does it mean to embody something?

 

We'll explore the feeling of embodiment through each one of our experiences over these 7 days and move towards a fuller, richer more authentic experience of life.
