about the retreat

Well-being Retreat focuses on revitalizing and harmonizing your health, and also personal growth using Max Strom’s Inner Axis system. Our time together will consist of full practices of breath-initiated movement and Yoga, lectures, writing, and discussion.

Take this extraordinary opportunity to join the inspiring and empowering teacher Max Strom for his spring well-being retreat. Enjoy seven days in beauty, transformation, and essential community.

The elements of our week:
• Transformational breathing to alleviate stress, anxiety, and burnout
• Inner Axis – key yoga postures, movements, and actions
• Emotional healing and wellbeing
• Dynamic Meditation
• Mindfulness tools
• Writing and discussion

The classes will be taught in English.

For the ultimate retreat experience, it is suggested that you practice several times with Max’s IA-30 video on YouTube (just go to YouTube and look up INNER AXIS 30) before the retreat to familiarize yourself with some of the practice we will be doing. This will enhance your experience.

july 26 - aug 1 2020 · monte velho

These Inner Axis special events will focus on revitalizing and harmonizing the health of our body, nervous system, and spirit. The center is quiet, beautiful, and serene. The events will consist of lectures, writing, and full practices of Inner Axis breath initiated movement, guided visualizations, and meditation. These are digitally unplugged events.


Dear Friends,

This is an invitation to join me for my well-being and yoga retreats. Retreats are the most potent medium for accelerating our personal evolution and reconnecting with nature, our community, and what is most meaningful to us. In these events we get the rare opportunity to have all distractions removed for a few days, totally unplugged, surrounded by natural beauty and like-minded seekers. I personally select retreat centers that are quiet, beautiful, and conserve healthy and delicious food. All of my retreats consist of lectures, writing, and full practices of my Inner Axis breath initiated movement, guided visualizations, and meditation. All levels of experience are welcome and taken care of.

I hope that you can join me for one of these joyful events.

With affection and solidarity

"I thought I knew how to breathe until I experienced Max Strom’s breathing work. He guided me to a depth and openness I didn't know was available. My heart, my breath, my spirit are nourished deeply by his teachings."
