The Full Story

Breathwork Africa invites you to join us for the Umoya BreathFest, an immersion and celebration of breath, the first event of its kind on the African Continent.

Humanity is at a crossroads, a choice point. We are being invited to return to our breath as our most powerful resource.

It is fitting, therefore that we return to the Cradle Humankind, our birthplace, the land of our first breaths. Here, through the land and under the stars between conversations and silence, to the rhythm of breath and drumbeat, we will come together for 5 days to learn, share, connect, breathe and be inspired.

We have crafted a truly incredible programme with an exciting lineup of speakers, workshops and experiences that  speaks to the heart of Pneumanity.

Cradle Valley Conference Venue

Cradle Valley is a beautiful and charming wedding, conference & function venue, overlooking the dam and horse paddocks on the edge of the Cradle of Humankind, west of Johannesburg.

The well designed and functional layout of the venue includes venue areas like the sunset veranda, fountain area, practical and unique bar, with a spacious buffet area and one of a kind boma, all framed with mesmerising gardens. A tranquil water stream flows softly in the background between the venue and chapel, while our adorable ducks celebrate in the water, the stream then meets our remembrance bridge before connecting the two Cradle Valley dams.
