About The Teacher

Co-founder of Sacred Breath Academy, Malakai Aeleo Azure has realized from an early age that he was put on this earth for a highly unique and powerful purpose. From this unshakable knowing, it has been become his life’s work to carry out his sacred calling on a global level. Like many, he was born into tragedy and subjected to significant conditioning and hardship. Having such a background he has made it his mission to resurrect the lost parts of himself that carry the truth of his being and create avenues for this authentic self to express true love into the world.  

Aeleo writes: “I have come to feel incredibly grateful for the pain that I have endured in this life, as it has been through the process of reclaiming my self from the layers of conditioning that I have generated the passion for supporting others in that same journey. It feels natural, like it was always meant to be. To be honest, there is no way I could have known how to serve others in this way if I hadn’t gone though the same process.”

Aeleo has been on the path of awakening for over decade now and has devoted himself to the process of inner alchemy, or spiritual refinement of self. He holds an infinite curiosity for understanding the fundamental principles of creation and seeks to find the universal, thematic truths that underlie all things. His teachings are simple, yet profound; distinct yet all-encompassing.  

“I view life as a massive tapestry of co-creation, where all beings are contributing their personal truth within the collective. This truth can either be generated from a conscious surrender to one's deepest, most essential nature, or, forged in the fire of a perceived separation from Source. Such is why it all comes back to the individual, as all dysfunctional systems or outer “authorities” are merely the result of the collective rejection of self on the intimate most levels. Thus, if we want to heal, we cannot address the problem by attempting to manage the symptoms, but rather we must we go to the root, something that lies within the individuals authentic sovereignty and relationship with creation. We are all walking miracles, inexplicably yet eternally connected to (and literal manifestations of) the creative life force, imbued with the endless impulse to become more of who we are. When we deny our true nature (an infinite wellspring of multi-dimensional intelligence) through not attuning to our emotional and subtle body, we turn to unhealthy substitutes in order to fill this void. We do unthinkable things in order to protect ourselves from the grief that lives in the recognition of just what we have compromised in ourselves. The longer we deny the wound, the worse it gets. The horrors we see on the world stage are the symptoms of a collective investment into the infinite strategies that are available to support this denial, and until enough people choose to honor their relationship with life itself, which begins with listening to the wisdom of the body and inner knowing, we will see the manifestation of these dysfunctional systems in ever-growing complexities. In each moment, we are given the opportunity to honor life and tend to this most sacred relationship. However, if we deny this responsibility, we ultimately forfeit our sovereignty to systems of limiting thought and control (both inward and outward) that promise to manage and thereby dictate our lives for us. This is why my work is to support the individual in remembering the beauty, grace, sovereignty and innocence of who they are beneath all layers of conditioned self and elucidate the path of surrendering to the unfathomable wisdom of their truest nature… This is how we return to grace.”

Malakai and Kaya (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.
