Emma is a trained breathwork coach alongside a physiotherapist and can help you find the right tools to shift out of fear and reactivity and find calm. Breathwork is for everyone and Emma works first to reset your body to calm restorative breathing before we shift it into more energetic techniques. She shares the science behind breathing and stress so you are in control. 

We will help safely support you with any injuries that you may have. Emma is a clinical physiotherapist who has worked with men and women for almost two decades in her private practice.

To help us understand how we can support any injuries while on retreat, we send out a health questionnaire upon registration to each of our guests that will ask for your health information. We also can adapt the experience when you are there.

Rest is encouraged, so if you need to sleep or do something more gentle, we will help you listen to what your body needs.

If you are unsure if your body can handle the experience, email us at exhale@thebreatheffect.com.

We strongly recommend that you have travel insurance in case any last minute emergencies arise and you can not make the retreat.  If you can’t make it you are able to sell your spot to another woman but a refund will not be given after the deposit is made. See our cancellation policy above for more clarity.

It is always fun to travel with a girlfriend, and on our retreats, our guests often come on their own and leave with lifelong friends. We have a mix of single and double rooms available but book early as we only have 10 spaces on the retreat.

Don’t just take our word for it...

"This is the most amazing experience that I have ever had. I only wished I had done it 30 years ago as I could have done things in such a different style. I have felt so safe at all times as Emma has guided me into this new part of my life. With all my thanks!"
Christine
“This is not something that I would normally do for myself. I mulled it over for a long time as something that other women would spend money and time on, but not me. Then my husband told me I should go for it and I am so grateful and glad that I did.

I had forgotten that my mind could be clear. That’s not something I’ll let myself forget again in a hurry. I just need to start with the body and let my mind follow. Thank you”
Megan
"I really enjoyed the breathing exercises - it unexpectedly helped me get out some of the emotions I had been holding in. I also loved the new conversations I was able to have with strangers and my mum, was new and nurture to our relationship.

Thank you for putting me in a better headspace and pointing out(through the journaling) some things I have been dealing with and need to work on to better my well-being"
Sarah
"I absolutely loved the retreat and while I was really only expecting the breathing and yoga elements, the holistic approach to my well-being was invigorating, uplifting and I guess life-changing too.

This retreat was a thank you gift to Cath but I guess I was the one who received the gift so thank you from the bottom of my heart. Oh and what an amazing group of women too! "
Megan
"This experience has been amazing. I have loved that in has been such a safe place for everyone to grow and share at a pace that has been right for them. Things that would otherwise be uncomfortable have been comfortable. I feel very nourished.

More than an a-ha, it has been a consolidation and reinforcement for my journey. Thank you."
"It really sunk in when Emma told us when women gather the stress hormones start to lower. I thought this is what I’ve been truly missing, gathering with women and speaking from our hearts.
I thought the combination of nature, yoga, breathing techniques all enabled me to sync back into my internal space.
Embrace my feminine instincts and listen once again to my heart and what my body is telling me. Thank you both so much."
Hollie
"An amazing and fulfilling experience. My body feels light and fluid with movement. An amazing group of wonderful women with Emma us through this wonderful journey.

Thank you so much for your understanding and empathy. A magical time that will remain with me forever."
Bev
"The experience has made me feel lighter, as though lot of the weight I didn’t know I was carrying has been lifted from me. The retreat has built slowly to allow us to open and relax.

I enjoyed every aspect of it, but most especially the moments of calm and reflection - the breathing in shavasana, the walks ….. I have achieved what I was looking for."
