Dr Anthony Soyer and Tomasz Joka share a common passion for Yoga, resilience training and optimal human function. The retreat will be made up of two approaches to empowerment.

Firstly, Anthony will give an introduction to medical research into the Science of Breath, explaining how we can use different systems of breathing to balance and heal the body. This will include full Pranayama practice including some of the following breathing techniques: Ujjayi, Nadi Shodhana, Kapalabhati and Kumbhaka.

Secondly, Tomasz will discuss and teach the principles of Hof Breathwork including cold water exposure.

Together they will also discuss techniques to cleanse, strengthen the biochemistry and repair physical damage. This extended personal time will allow extensive discussion in all areas of health including the psychology of health.
