Free your breath

“…Then I met Alan Dolan who teaches a therapeutic breath technique called conscious breathing. In the first session, I found myself taking huge, deep belly breaths for nearly an hour to a peculiar rhythm, eyes closed, propped up with a stack of Indian embroidered cushions. Sounds bizarre, and it was. I slid into a deeply meditative, almost ecstatic state, and I felt like I could ‘let go’ of a whole lot of emotional baggage (often held as tension in the body: Alan uses acupressure massage during the session to help release it). I felt energised and uplifted afterwards, if exhausted and dehydrated. Everyone has a different experience; it can be relief of physical symptoms such as breathing difficulties, anxiety, low energy, as well as working on the more emotional side of letting go of trauma, giving you a confidence boost or a feeling of clarity. Regular practice is recommended – you learn the technique as a ‘take home’ as well as going to sessions. Alan teaches groups and one to ones around the country as well as at his gorgeous retreat in Lanzarote.”

Take a deep breath: Discover the power of oxygen at a transformational breathing retreat

“…The hour vanishes, leaving me extraordinarily light and relaxed. My eyes feel wider, whiter, my lungs somehow larger, somehow cleaner on the inside. That night I sleep instantly, deeply – rare for me – and have crazy, vivid dreams.”

“…‘Be careful over the rest of the day,’ [Alan] says. ‘You might feel different.’ He’s right. Walking back to the office I feel dazed. Oddly obscure memories flit into my brain and there’s a sense of altered frequency, that the world is a subtly different place…”

Breathe Yourself Alive – Workshops for All Levels

September is naturally a time of new beginnings, as the ease of the summer haze starts to fade. But before the back to work feeling kicks in, there’s time to consider the different ways we can effect change and learn how to mould and shape our lives towards a lighter, brighter existence. Exploring our breath makes these things simple and affords us with the space and time to ease the pressure of the daily grind. With self-practice possible after just one session, conscious breathing really is a straight road towards enlightenment…
