‘The Mountains are calling, and I must go’ – John Muir
If you’re looking for adventure, a taste of the wild and the chance to go beyond what you thought possible, then come join Breathless Expeditions on our life-changing Breathwork Retreat in the Snowy Mountains.
Our breathwork retreat takes place in the beautiful Crackenback Valley, gateway to Kosciuszko National Park. Surrounded by snow topped mountains, the landscape is both majestic and peaceful at once, providing the perfect backdrop to get high and go deep.
WHY SHOULD I COME ALONG FOR A BREATHWORK RETREAT?
Conquer more than just a mountain.
From hiking snow covered trails, swimming in frozen rivers or just pausing for a moment to take in the majestic surroundings, let the ephemeral power of the mountains challenge then soothe, inspire then calm.
Fully ground yourself in nature at her purest. Breathe in that crisp fresh air. Go deep in the breathwork sessions. Find your true self on a snowy peak. Take solace in companionship and camaraderie. Soak up the warmth of the sauna, log fire and shared laughter.
A fresh perspective on self discovery
Let yourself be guided by the beauty connection, nature and your breath and return home with a fresh perspective, a deeper sense of self and that call to the wild answered on every level.
Over the weekend, you will experience advanced breathwork sessions, informative workshops, guided meditations, stimulating discussions and of course, cold water immersion. Your local alpine guides will be on hand to help guide you through and gain a unique insight into the beauty that is the Snowy Mountains. Swim in pristine glacial rivers, summit one of Australia’s highest peaks in minimal clothing and reach your highest potential during this unique weekend adventure.
We will be there to guide and support you every step of the way.
To help you make this your own journey.
To allow you the space and provide you with the tools to tap into your inner superhuman.
It will be a life changing experience.
A holistic approach to your well being
No matter what your fitness level is, no matter what you’re looking to get out of this time away, you will leave armed with the knowledge and daily practices to enhance your mental, emotional and physical wellness and embrace your true full potential.
WHAT IS BREATHLESS EXPEDITIONS?
Breathless is the space between science and the unknown, between the head and the heart, between learning and feeling, the space between doing and being, between who you are and who you are becoming.
Think yoga retreat, but then different
Combining ancient breathwork techniques with revolutionary neuroscience and studies into human potential, we believe that by learning to become aware of our
breath and how it impacts on us, we can influence our health, our mental state, the way we feel, the way we move and ultimately, the way we live.
There is so much stress, trauma, and fear build up in our body from everyday life and past experiences, that our Breathwork retreat offers a beautiful path to healing within a safe community.
As Australia’s No. 1 leading breathwork program, we are all about getting out into nature and into our souls.
Get high, go deep and let your breath set you free.

DISCLAIMER: Breathwork offers many potential benefits, but certain conditions may create risks for some individuals. It is essential to read all questions in Breathless Waiver above carefully before deciding if Breathwork is right for you, and let your health practitioner know about any concerns before participating. There are some contraindications including but not limited to pregnancy, glaucoma, high blood pressure not controlled with medication, cardiovascular disease, aneurysm in the brain or abdomen, uncontrolled thyroid conditions and diabetes, asthma (if you have an inhaler, bring it to the session), epilepsy, bipolar disorder or schizophrenia diagnosis or previous psychiatric hospitalisation within the last ten years; other medical or physical conditions that impair the ability to engage in intense physical/emotional release.

In our experience, this session is more appropriate for those that are aged 18 and above because adolescents may not have the emotional maturity or life experience needed to fully understand or benefit from the techniques. Please contact us to discuss under-18 years of age attendance as we assess on a case-by-case request. Please articulate the event date, venue and participant’s date of birth etc.
