Kaya is a renowned international breathwork facilitator and co-founder of Sacred Breath Academy. She is also a profound visionary, quantum breakthrough coach, wisdomkeeper, artist, plant and stone alchemist, and conduit of the sacred. She is additionally the creator of Sophia Breathwork for women. Kaya is an anchor of light, higher truth and ancient knowledge, maintaining the role of the archetypal priestess and portal to the deep womb mysteries of the feminine. Kaya additionally serves as an unyielding protector of Mother Earth, remaining a fervent defender of her precious resources, animal kingdom and delicate ecosystems.

Kaya and Malakai (co-founder of Sacred Breath Academy) together are quantum activators and catalysts of individual empowerment. The undercurrent of their work harnesses the vision of a new paradigm on the horizon. Through years of steadfast inquiry, study and embodiment of key principles of spirituality, Jungian psychology, advanced ecology, holistic nutrition, quantum mechanics and particle physics, meditation, breathwork, yoga, qigong, and energy medicine as well as the essence of the enlightenment teachings that transcend language, they realized part of their purpose for coming together was to offer a synthesis of their life's uncoverings, taking this great work across the globe.

Kaya and Malakai hold a powerful alchemy in their union, and, through this dynamic, they are able to offer a way of anchoring transformation that is truly beyond. Through this higher purpose of being, they remain unwaveringly devoted to supporting the path of self-realization and self-actualization in countless individuals of all walks of life.

Their core modality, Sacred Breath, utilizes the power of breath to release all that holds one back from their greater potential, while simultaneously recalibrating their highest alignment. Kaya and Malakai have been weaving the art of breathwork for over a decade now and completed their Facilitator's Certification in Bali.

To this day, they remain continuously in awe of the profound metamorphoses breathwork catalyzes, a foremost reason why they have devoted so much of their life to it. 

Malakai and Kaya have dedicated their lives to personal and planetary healing. Their message is such: Each moment is an opportunity to learn from our creative manifestation, to dive into the motivations behind our actions, and to reflect on what it is we are actually looking for. True healing occurs when we recognize the feedback loop in our lives and begin to take responsibility and authorship over who we are on the deepest and tender-most levels. In turn, the process catalyzes an authentic reclamation of self. This path involves gentle peeling away of layers of conditioned beliefs which are held in both the individual and collective spheres. Soon we begin to see that the world we live in is a reflection of our own state of being and that this reality is being co-created by the agreements we hold.
Once we awaken to this, we may create joyfully, playfully, passionately and authentically, weaving our own tapestry of life. When we realize our very being is a part of the creative intelligence of the cosmos, we begin to honor the subtle language of our own souls and listen to what this inner knowing is communicating to us. The unconscious programming most of us endured during our developmental phases has caused us to settle for a life that is far removed from who we actually are, and when we acknowledge this truth, it becomes clear that we must reevaluate much of what we thought we knew about life and our purpose on the earth.
From this point of awakening, it becomes clear that one is not bound to the dream of the world, but is in fact empowered to become all that they know is possible. When we work with individuals, we invite their deeper knowing to come forth from within and hold space for the emotional body to purge all systems of thought and belief that do not honor one's essential nature. We are not here to placate or sell you comfortable lies. We are here to walk with you into the depths of your own soul to support you in the authentic recalibration of your sacred spiritual identity. We will assist you in taking an honest inventory of your current life circumstance through activating the knowing of the wise one within. We will empower you to reshape your agreements with life and clear up any dysfunctional relational dynamics that have resulted from years of conditioning, forging new relationships from love, respect, authenticity and spiritual integrity. We are here to remind you that the ecstatic expression of pure being is your birthright. From this place emerges boundless opportunity and potentiality; a bare palette for you to stand upon. You are the luminous architect of your life. And we are here to guide you in your ancient remembrance of such: that all of existence supports you in the reclamation of your personal truth, relinquishment of illusion and the awakening of your infinite creative potential.

Kaya's role as an artist seeks to capture the infinite beauty of the natural world in conjunction with the depths of human emotion (for they are one in the same), in effort to re-invoke that which lies half-sleeping within humanity. Through photography, film and visual mediums, Kaya seeks to stir the soul through nuanced remembrance, subtly conjuring the ineffable. There is a profundity in her work that transcends lingual barriers and thought, provoking something so unspeakable that the viewer may not initially realize, but later infiltrates the core of their being.
Kaya Leigh is also the creatriss behind Sacred Breath's Luminous Apothecary and Medicina Mundi Organics, wild-crafted and hand-blended lines of intoxicating body oils, anointing oils, bath salts, elixirs, essences, tonics, salves, balms, mysts and other meaningful infusions to support your embodiment of deep rejuvenation, cellular exuberance, and dynamic radiance. Each product is imbued with intent, vibrational and gem essences, and Reiki codes. They are additionally formulated with organic, cold-pressed carrier oils and the highest therapeutic-grade essential oils. Her lines are designed to nourish your temple, inside and out.
Kaya is a visionary that seeks not to rebel against the old structures and systems, but rather to transmute and transform them into new ways of being, seeing and living. She perceives a metamorphosized and awakened world on the horizon and it is her foremost mission to assist in building this collective dream every step of the way, even if its totality extends far beyond her lifetime.
Kaya’s work is a synthesis of vibrational medicine, high alchemy, ancient wisdom and intuitive healing. Her life is devoted to living with grace, purpose, and intention. Ultimately, she seeks to plant seeds of consciousness in every modality possible, with her foremost vision being such: that we all walk in way of truth and beauty together.

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

I teach yoga part time and am a mom of two toddlers full time. I love my life, but goodness do I need a break. My husband and I have been putting off our wedding ceremony for 4 years because life has gotten in the way. We haven't had a single night alone since our family has grown. I wouldn't change a thing about our lives now, but it would be so wonderful to remember what it's like to 'just be us.' Antrim

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
