Hi everyone

We’ve been doing spring cleaning (of ourselves ;0) early here at the retreat and as usual the Breath has worked its Magic. It’s the most effective way to create rapid, permanent change for the good.

You already know that I love this stuff, however I thought you might like to hear what the press and some recent visitors have said about working with their Breath and the Retreat…

“A yoga retreat with a difference”

“The villa where Dolan lives and holds his retreats is modern, comfortable and spacious, without being over-the-top. Boasting spectacular views across the island and out to the ocean, the villa holds no more than three people at a time, ensuring that retreats are deliberately small and intimate – Dolan explains that he feels he can get greater impact and connection this way: ‘It’s all about achieving rapid dramatic change. Allowing yourself to relax and let go, to focus on yourself without feeling guilty.’ ”

…And breathe

“They sound like big claims but Alan is adamant. ‘It continues to amaze me and my clients that something as simple as this can have such profound effects. Breath is quite literally life! The way we breathe determines how we live our lives. I saw one young woman who had been raped as a child and still felt toxic. After three breathing sessions she wrote to say that she finally felt able to move on with her life.’”

Diving into the breathing ocean

“…It was the kind of retreat that not only facilitates positive change, but is capable of bringing permanent shifts across your entire spectrum of being. The nature and the depth of those changes are entirely individual, and the journey to them is just as fascinating as the destination.”

“I left feeling more grounded, tranquil and centred, and having opened the door to the new journey I’d been set on: a journey of a relationship with myself. I’ve also left with a deep assurance that I’m yet to experience all the benefits the retreat had given to me, as I go back into my daily life and watch the results of those inner changes taking place.”

Breathe easy

“…The benefits are said to be two-fold: you feel a real natural high, and the concentration required frees your mind so that you enter an almost meditative state. You can master the technique in an hour- long, one-to-one session with a teacher, then practise at home whenever you need extra energy or feel stressed. “That’s what I truly love about it – its power,” says Alan.”

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.”

Why breathe?

A question for you. Why breathe? and more specifically why conscious breathing? After 7 years of exploring and working with conscious breathing every day I am absolutely convinced that it is THE way to go for those of us intent on getting clear of our stuff and moving onwards and upwards…
