“Thank you for an extraordinary time…what a wonderful life! So much love and laughter…”

“The single most enriching journey of my life”

“One of the best things we’ve ever done together”

“I feel so much better within myself”

Jimmy Murray, London

“After just four days under Alan’s guidance, I felt as if decades of stress and trauma had been lifted. I arrived an overwrought, adrenaline-addled TV producer and left noticeably calmer and feeling more like the “better me” I had nearly forgotten existed.

The basics of beneficial breathing quickly took on a natural ease for me. Nurtured by Alan and his wise team, and delighted by his adorable canine companion Louis, I returned from the breathing oasis lighter and brighter in every sense, including bidding goodbye to those telltale under-eye bags.

The effects are long lasting and daily practice is easy — I’m feeling great, softer and more serene. Life seems easier, with things suddenly falling into place. ‘Keep it coming!’ as Alan likes to remind us.”


“One of the most important weeks of my life”

Nicky, London

“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”

“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”

“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’

“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”

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.”
