Breathe your way to better leadership

“…‘Many people in highly demanding roles understand the importance of taking time out to exercise and eat well to maintain good physical health, but very few pay attention to how they breathe, which is just as important,’ says Alan Dolan, a ‘breath guru’ who teaches a technique known as conscious breathing. ‘This involves really focusing on infusing the body with oxygen. It’s a safe and effective way of recharging our own, often depleted, systems to work to their healing capacity.’

As a former PR manager in the aerospace industry, Dolan had been suffering from executive stress himself when he discovered conscious breathing while on a sabbatical in 2004. Its mooted benefits include a reduction in stress, an increased ability to learn and a clearer mind. What’s more, you should start looking healthier, as there will be more oxygenated blood getting to your skin.

‘Most people use only 25 per cent of their breathing capacity, but virtually every condition can be improved simply by drawing a fuller breath,’ says Dolan, who now runs regular ‘breathing space retreats’ and workshops in the UK and at his home on Lanzarote…”

“I have had many massages over the years and having a massage from Martin at the Breathing Space Retreat has to be the best I have had yet. Martin has a unique ability to blend technical skill with intuitive touch and energy work.

I felt that he was very in tune to me, with how I was reacting to the massage and where I needed the most work done and was able to make it feel as though every part of my body had been cared for. He was by far the most ‘present’ body worker I have ever experienced and was able to help me release in places I didn’t even know I was holding tension.

Martin creates an atmosphere of safety, calm, presence and care. I would highly recommend him to anyone”

“I have practiced yoga and meditation for many years and have always struggled with breathing and connecting the breath, I felt constricted across the chest and stuck. I knew I wasn’t breathing to my full capacity and that was the motivating factor for my initial interest in transformational breath, my actual experience extends way beyond any expectations I ever believed could be achieved through breathing! The breath work took me on a huge healing journey in 5 days and for the first time in my life I could feel my heart softening and opening. The work Alan does is incredible, truly life changing and transformational”

“I have such a warm glow of gratitude and inspiration from the past week at the retreat, that I can’t quite fathom we’ve “only” done a week’s worth of work. If feels like half a year in transformation time, at least! Thank you for your generosity in terms of both time, effort, sound advice and all the love you serve it up with. I am forever grateful”
