Posted in Newsletters

Hi everyone, Greetings from the Magic Island!

It’s the ‘depths’ of Winter here and currently doing 23 degrees C and sunny. This is the kind of Winter I can relate to ;0). Lots of good stuff on the go at the moment. I’ll be over for workshops and 1-1 sessions at the end of next week at CAMYOGA January 31st and Indaba Yoga February 7th. I’ll also be hosting an Introduction to Breathwork evening for and at Soho House on Tuesday February 2nd at 7:30pm….

Room to breathe

“…While this ‘connective breath’ is billed as a form of self-healing, the best way to master the technique is at an introductory workshop. They take place regularly across the UK, with trained ‘facilitators’ on hand to whisper affirmations in your ear and gently apply pressure to areas such as your shoulders to help release what are termed ‘blockages’.

A one-to-one session with breath coaches can make for a more powerful practice, but to experience TB in true style, head to one of Dolan’s retreats in Lanzarote. They take place in a stylish villa with views of the island’s volcanic landscape. Guests who have raved about their stay include Bond star Naomie Harris and England international rugby ace Paul Sampson, who credits TB with helping him combat exercise-induced asthma…”

October 2015 London and Cambridge workshops

Posted in Newsletters

Hi everyone, Greetings from the Magic Island!

Just about to head over to the UK so wanted to flag up the workshops in Cambridge and London for you. If you haven’t been along yet please do, they are really very powerful and the perfect intro (or top up) for your breath practice. Both venues are terrific and easily accessible. Myself and the other facilitators who will be assisting would love to see you…

Lanzarote fitness retreats: best for healing – Breathing Space Retreat

“Conscious breathing is one of the most liberating therapies I’ve ever had – and I’ve had a few… If you have an issue to sort out, or just an underlying feeling that something in your life just ain’t quite right, you can book a private retreat in the village of Oasis de Nazaret with Alan Dolan, the man who brought conscious breathing to the UK… During a conscious breathing session, you’re asked to breathe in and out through an open mouth (‘to access 100% of your respiratory system’), while the therapist does a spot of acupressure and encourages you to release any blocked physical, emotional or psychological trauma by making sounds or moving your limbs. The idea is you move through an emotion that comes up, rather than getting stuck in it. It feels odd at first, but because the combination occupies you on both a physical and mental level, you can’t just switch off or rationalise your feelings. It was so powerful for me that, during one session, I re-lived the birth of my now five-year old daughter in a compelling, all-consuming, tear-filled experience.”

September 2015 summer update & autumn availability

Posted in Newsletters

Hi everyone, Greetings from the Magic Island! We have had an amazing summer here at the retreat.

Great people coming through as always and a new development for this year: I’ve breathed two families i.e. mum, dad, and the kids too. One family had two sons of 7 and 9 and the other had two sons of 16 and 18. People often ask if working with Breath is ok for kids and my answer is a definite YES. My youngest client ever was only 6 weeks old when I breathed her, with the oldest client thus far being 86 years of age. Both sessions were beautiful and the Breath delivered as it always does…

July 2015 Newsletter

Posted in Newsletters

Hi everyone and greetings from the Magic Island.

Having just got back from the Aegean cruise and studies in Italy I’m now getting ready to head to the UK for a workshop at INDABA YOGA on July 18th. These events are great fun and massively powerful into the bargain. If you feel like something deeper and more intensive then head over to the Lanzarote retreat where rapid permanent transformation is the order of the day. I’m in situ all thru summer and availability is listed below! Also in this issue check out the terrific new programme ‘The Bridge’, designed and facilitated by my friend and colleague Donna Lancaster.

With love, Alan
