"Wow, what a beautiful experience. Mela's devotion to passing on her knowledge about breathwork touches me deeply. Throughout the training, I felt very inspired by her authenticity and integrity. Mela has provided a safe container in which we all could go on a deep personal journey whilst learning how to hold space for such transformational work ourselves. I feel very grateful for all that I have learned and I can fullheartedly recommend the training to anyone willing to dive deep." Stephan, Austria
