The Program

The main focus of the immersion is you. We intentionally designed the program to inspire you to connect more deeply with yourself, to stretch you towards new possibility, and guide you to take actions that enrich your life.  

During our week together, you'll learn mind+body practices and access inner resources through the Wild Ambition workshop series. The workshops were purposefully and thoughtfully created to empower you to learn more about yourself, what's really important, and your wild ambitions. 

Our methodology is grounded on the concept of learning through experience and is supported by ancient yogic philosophy and current science in coaching psychology. It’s our vision that, as you interact with the content and implement what you are learning, you'll reveal new aspects of yourself and become more skilled at creating what you really want.



This immersion will offer daily yoga classes to support your holisitic experience, deepen your yoga practice, and strengthen your connection within.

Morning practices will be mindfully sequenced and themed to build on one another and to complement our workshops. A few restorative afternoon and evening sessions will be offered, allowing you to stabilise the mind and ease your body into deep relaxation.

Classes are suitable for all levels and will include guided meditation and breathing techniques. Modifications to postures will be offered with a focus on self-awareness and ease of movement.


Our stay

The places we dwell have an impact on how we feel and how we spend our days.
— Soultribe Beach Retreat

To facilitate your experience, we've chosen oceanside accommodation on a breathtaking stretch of white sand beach. Soultribe Beach Retreat is a luxurious eco-conscious retreat located on a tropical island with a jungle feel and private pool on site.

 Siargao island is most commonly known as a surf destination given it's amazing waves, but it is also so much more. It is abundant with natural beauty and bucketlist worthy adventures.

Enjoy a fresh sea breeze from the comfort of your 0cean front cabana with private en suite and outdoor showers or get closer to nature with comfort and style in a luxury bell tent.

We will provide 2 meals per day during your immersion. We've curated a nourishing menu with Soultribe Retreat owner and chef to offer you a special food selection each day.  Our menu can be focussed on vegetarian and vegan to accommodate for group preferences. Breakfasts will include flavoured water, coffee, and tea. 

Our Legacy

The locals in Siargao are sharing their home with us during our stay and, so, we are inspired to reciprocate their generosity. Each Wild Ambition Immersion includes an element of giveback to the local community. For this immersion, we are inviting a few local leaders to join us on our program. The vision is that their experience will help them evolve further into their best self and the way in which they serve their communities.

If you would like to financially support a deserving local leader to join us, the extra cost can be added to your package.
