"This is not an ordinary breathwork training! This training that Mela created with so much wisdom, passion and love, is a deep spiritual practice that allowed to me to go deeper in my inner being and make a really fundamental work to connect with my true essence. it's very difficult to express it in words, because it is all about the experience on a energetical, emotional and spiritual level. It's really a transformational work on the individual, group and collective level. I'm grateful for the opportunity to have this experience led by Mela in connection and in symbiosis with an amazing group of 12 people that will be craved in my heart forever." - Ricardo, Lisbon
