"Profound is the word I choose to describe the breathwork retreat. I found pieces of myself that have been deeply missing.  I have no idea who I am becoming as a result of this weekend retreat, but I know my inner warrior has been brought forward and her light is ready to shine.  Thank you for helping me find me!"

Dear Leah,


I hope my words can convey how the breathwork retreat has helped me. At times I cry thinking about moments during the retreat, how gentle, healing and yet profound the facilitation and breathwork can be. For me I have been holding so much anger and hurt inside and realized I needed permission to go deep into it. In that depth, you helped me find my inner warrior goddess. I needed YOU to help me realize she was already inside of me and had been locked away. I feel like more women need this opportunity to find their warrior, to let her out.  I want people to know what you are doing is so fucking amazing!!! Also, I NEED more of this breathwork!!!

What is breathwork?


Embodied breathwork encourages you to dismantle your habitual survival patterns you relied on in childhood.  When you release these subconscious patterns of protection, you free yourself from underlying restrictions in your mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual life. Breathwork supports the integration of your past traumas and resets the nervous system. This allows you to experience a feeling of embodiment and well-being. Through harmonizing the nervous system, you start to experience your life less colored by past traumas and survival strategies, and more rooted in the present moment.


In breathwork ceremonies, we utilize circular breathing to access non-ordinary states of consciousness in order to shift our perceptions, release traumas & dissolve compulsive patterns. You will be supported in a sacred space as you use your breath to expand your awareness, open your energy centers, move through areas that feel "stuck" or "blocked" and connect to your innermost self.


Identifying if this retreat is right for you: 

  • Have you tried several therapies with minimal results?

  • Are you constantly stressed out and/or exhausted?

  • Are you longing to shift destructive patterns?

  • Do you feel compelled to experience a deep transformation that may give you a more powerful, less restricted, and lighter way of living?

  • Are you being pulled to find your fire or spark within your soul?

  • Are you ready to wake up to the ways in which you perpetuate your own story of suffering?

I developed PTSD as a result of being emotionally and psychologically abused by an extremely mentally ill mother. In my mid 40s, the stress became so severe that I completely collapsed both physically and emotionally. I could barely function and spent my days lying on the floor, shaking, exhausted, debilitated, and praying that I would not die. 


For 5 years, I did everything possible to regain my health. Things improved, but I was still only at about 30 percent on a good day. In just a few sessions of the breathwork with Micah I felt a significant increase in my energy, stamina, and nervous system resilience. The progress that I’ve made utilizing breathwork techniques has been absolutely amazing, and I truly believe that this therapy is essential for anyone who is dealing with trauma related health issues of any kind.
