The How and Why of the new Breathe Retirement Neighbourhood.
After leaving Tumby Bay in 1993, to work in Adelaide and pursue his dreams of travel and career, Damian Modra, Breathe Founder, worked in hospitality and travelled to Europe.
His travels were, as many have experienced, an eye-opener. Two main beliefs crystallised - Tumby Bay’s wonderful natural beauty and uniqueness as well as his commitment to living a life of environmental-responsibility…without compromising comfort and fun.
Through his extensive research, Damian found that many people, of all ages but particularly those contemplating retirement, want to live a life of more…and less.
The ‘more’ they are seeking is more freedom, more relaxation, more time, more new things to be interested in. The ‘less’ is less stress, less pressure, less rush, less demands.
