Jody Shield testimonial - Alan Dolan, Breathguru | Breathing Space Retreats

“What I love about working with Alan is how safe I feel in his presence. He is very powerful in the gentlest of ways. He supports me to work through very deep and old information while remaining calm and peaceful the whole time. He makes it feel so easy. During the session I felt such a heavy burden lift off my shoulders, it was as if the weight-of-the-world I’d been carrying since birth and from my ancestors was suddenly released. Wow! And the best thing is the breath work is all so simple, that’s the beauty of it. It’s amazing to know you can simply return to the breath, and process so much by doing so.”

Jody Shield, Healer | Author | Speaker


“I have exercise induced asthma and now understand how a regular practise of conscious breathing can improve my respiratory condition. Learning how to improve my breathing with Alan has been incredible. His expertise and experience has helped me to improve my breathing pattern and has taught me how paramount a full breath is for recovery and reaching your full potential”

Paul Sampson, England International Rugby Player


Lisa Butcher - Breathing Space Retreats - breathguru

“I feel during our time together at your retreat a little magic happened… my life since has been filled with an abundance of joy and happiness. I feel as if finally I’m who I am meant to be and where I should be. I’m so grateful for all you have done. It really is such a huge gift. Sending you love and a big hug”

Lisa Butcher, presenter of ‘What Not To Wear’


Serena Gordon

“The perfect place to let go of old issues and find the clarity to go forward. I felt far more
positive as a result. A very safe space where you can feel vulnerable and held at the same time. I feel more grounded than ever before”

Serena Gordan (co-founder Hoffman UK)


Barefoot Doctor - Breathing Space Retreats - breathguru

“The art of breathing is intrinsic to my own work – it helps me immeasurably; and Alan is a master practitioner of breath therapy”

Stephen Russell (The Barefoot Doctor)


“ Alan is a very talented breath and body worker. He magically combines great skill/insight with lightness & grace. I’d highly recommend his glorious retreat”

Hilary Wilson; Speaker, Trainer, Coach, Author


“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”

Jody, Canada


“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”

Naomi Buff, Naomi’s Kitchen, Monaco


“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”

Hanne, Denmark


“I came to the Alan’s Lanzarote retreat stressed and quite frankly not very well. I was waking at night short of breath, every night. I was worried. The combination of Alan’s techniques, Martin’s massages and the general ambiance of the place meant I left it four days later a new man. Lighter in mind and body and importantly with the tools to help myself in future. And I got my sleep back. And have ever since. I would recommended anyone who needs to re-find their balance to go”

Dominic, London


“As a breath worker myself, I usually manage my own breath sessions, but then sometimes life gets overwhelming and like most people, I need help. Alan is such a skilled breath worker as well as a kind, compassionate and loving human being and as the days and the sessions went by, my resistance and distress began to dissipate. The experience of being held and nurtured by the whole “Breathing Space” package will, I know, have lasting benefits in my life”

Ange Leake, Breathangel UK


“Thank you thank you! For your generosity, gentleness and guidance. What a remarkable few days at the retreat”

Claire, UK


“Learning the power we have within us to recalibrate ourselves was the most powerful message I took with me after my stay at Breathing Space Retreat, Lanzarote”

Joseph, UK


“The retreat was a real gift and was the catalyst for the beginning of my spiritual journey. It enabled me to connect with myself for the first time in years and Alan’s breath work was invaluable and now forms part of my daily routine”

Delaine, UK


“I’d describe my experience at the retreat as a cocoon, the perfect space to just be, ground and come back to yourself. I realised the other day when walking how much more peaceful my head was; I normally have a million thoughts whizzing around and now there’s a calmness”

Amai, London
