There are three programmes to choose from:

Yakushima, a rarely visited island off the southern tip of Japan, is the location of Breathe Zen. The mountainous, forested interior of this island provides the perfect setting for ‘shinrin-yoku’ (forest bathing), a scientifically proven restorative process of spending time in nature. In a specially built dojo, a Renshinkan Karate Master will guide you through the principles of the ‘bushido’ code (the Samurai Warrior code) and teach you the concept of ‘hara’, a breathing technique that focuses on the lower abdomen, the centre of your body’s vital energy field.

Breathe Deep invokes the liberating sensation of exploring the vast expanses of our oceans, whilst experiencing an unrivalled sense of freedom and peace under the water. Based on a private island, guests will receive one-to-one tutorship in the skill of freediving, using techniques from yoga and meditation.

In Norway, Breathe Ice is a regenerative regime that will help guests reap the health benefits of exposure to the cold, which include fat loss, muscle recovery and a fortified immune system. Core to this exhilarating concept is the Wim Hof Method, a discipline that heightens oxygen in the blood to improve endurance. Guests can complement this experience with snowmobiling, sea kayaking, nights under the Northern Lights, and many other activities.
