“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.”

How to get fit in 2014: A-Z of the best new fitness and wellbeing trends

“The ‘Breath Guru’ Alan Dolan wants us to breathe properly: altering the breath to a pattern where the inhale is three times longer than the exhale with no pause between the two parts. ‘Breathing this way puts your whole brain into recalibration mode. In just one session you can feel yourself letting go of emotions you’ve held in, reducing stress and anxiety and raising energy.’ Dolan holds classes in London and at retreats in Lanzarote.

“Alan Dolan, also known as “the breath guru” in North London, is one of the 27 qualified breath facilitators in Britain, although there are 2,000 worldwide. Dolan claims his services have helped patients overcome sleep disorders, weight issues, low energy, and even cancer, Metro U.K. reports.

Hollywood celebrities try ‘Transformational Breathing’ to banish anxiety

“So, what’s it all about? Well, it’s a bit like the breathing used in meditation that calms your body down and reduces blood pressure.

The technique centres around inhaling and exhaling at certain rates (roughly each inhalation should be three times longer than exhalation). You’ll need to breathe in for three seconds and out for one.

This allows more oxygen and ‘energy’ to enter your body and allows you to exhale any ’emotional energy’ that’s stored up in your body, according to Alan Dolan, aka ‘the breath guru’…

Kate Hudson and James Bond star Naomie Harris are said to be fans of the technique, which has worked it’s way across the pond to North London.”

Ready, steady… breathe

“…The biggest breathing breakthrough for me was experiencing conscious breathing with Alan Dolan. I found myself taking huge, deep, belly breaths for nearly an hour to a peculiar rhythm, eyes closed, propped up with a stack of cushions. I slid into a meditative, almost ecstatic state. ‘When you breathe like this, you get high,’ he says. ‘I explain it as connecting to the less tangible aspects of our being.’ It certainly proved to me that breath is the connection between the external and internal, bringing that inner peace we all crave…”

Goldie Hawn does it, but is conscious breathing any good?

“I’m not a spiritual person but I’ve just seen a vision of a bat. Not only that but my body is shaking with a force I don’t quite understand, my fingers are tingling and an old operation scar is aching like crazy. And I have just had a huge outpouring of ‘emotional trauma’ – basically, I cried like a baby and have no idea why.”

“But I am not losing my marbles. I’m at a three-day retreat learning to harness the power of breath for better health and wellbeing.”
