About the IAM Breathing Method Retreat
The focus and purpose of this retreat is to help optimise wellness within the body and mind.
It is important to remain vital and to keep the body and central nervous system well oxygenated.
Many of us have become used to accommodating or adapting to living under the toxic effects of the modern way of life that can keep our stress and anxiety lever in a semi-constant “on” position. This means that the fear hormones adrenalin and cortisol are in constant production. Imperceptibly over the course of our lives, our breathing becomes shallower and we may develop a tendency to unconsciously hold our breath.
The IAM Breathing Method cohesively combines different practices – Deep breathing method(from Wim Hof), IAM meditation, Cold therapy(showers) and simple Yogic exercises – to assist, strengthen, heal and maintain emotional, mental, physical and physiological well-being.
These practices allow the mind and body to slow down, and lessen the production of stress, fear and anxiety chemistry in the body, and allow the body to produce another superior chemistry that awakens and strengthens aspects of the central nervous system and immune system.
The retreat will be in silence, apart from specific talking times, to further support your focus with the IAM Breathing Method.

Awaken the Teacher “inside”
Although you will be led by trained teachers who are currently practicing these methods, they are more for your help and guidance – mostly it is about understanding your own intuitive body and mind – the teacher “inside”. Participants will be reminded of this important aspect throughout the retreat.
Open to All – No Religion or Dogma
These retreats are open to all. The different practices are not based on any religion or dogma. The retreats are suitable for people who want to encourage wellness in body and mind, or as an adjunct to the Insight Awareness Meditation(IAM) retreats
The IAM Breathing Method retreats have a registration/administrative cost of $50 plus donation/koha ($200+) for the retreat itself and includes full accommodation and all meals.
Teachers are people who accept and endorse in their body what the Tushita Mystery School stands for. This School has been set up and founded by Spiritual Master Yanchiji, a life master who shows, through his own living humanness and his profound mind clarity, how to live as Love within our humanness.
Teachers are devoted to the study of happiness, vitalness, wellbeing and the understanding of the wisdom community.
These exercises are a constant discipline in their own bodies and minds, to enhance their own growth and understanding of their own inherent Life’s values, core values of how to live naturally well, humourfully, with certainty and stability within Life’s parameters.
They are able to show this to you through their own understanding and practice.
