“A huge thank you from me for such an enlightening experience which has helped me enormously both physically and emotionally. It was a great pleasure to meet you and spend time learning the techniques and discussing all kinds of things from meditation and nutrition to led zeppelin and kate bush”
“A big thank you for a fantastic week… loved it. Feeling fabulous… you have an exceptional team around you”
“Alan’s unfaltering dedication and intuitive responsiveness during my retreat was a pivotal factor in the improvement of my health and the evolution of my soul”
“It was so enlightening to be reminded of what a finely tuned instrument the body really is, it’s very easy to forget that in a busy life”
“My time at the Breathing Space in Lanzarote was wonderful, just what I needed to give space and attention to myself… the place is an oasis of peace. After a few days there I have such positive energy and I feel better and better each day. I am generally in a good mood and with more focused energy. Everything feels less stressful. My family tells me I am smiling more…”
“I came to your retreat a few years ago and wanted to thank you for getting me started on my spiritual path… a big thank you for the inspiration”
“To have a tool to raise my vibration as much as this does… is such a gift. The change in my energy even after a 10 minute breathe was astounding”
“I can honestly say I feel great. I was a complete mess when I arrived in Lanzarote but now feel so much more grounded and aware. And a lot less ‘troubled’ by external forces. During yesterday’s walk the scenery, the smells, lights, sounds, all seemed intensified. Not only that, but the reaction of other walkers to me… they smiled widely and their greetings were genuinely ‘happy to see me’ …was it the sun or the vibrations?”
“Having now worked with Alan in both group and 1-1 settings I have found the experience to be very beneficial. The empowerment from knowing we each have this power of breath and change within us is incredible. The 1-1 session gave me insights into my own subconscious and I felt tremendous release during and after the breath work. As a therapist myself (and marketing director for aromatherapy brand Scentered) I found the concept of releasing emotions whilst not attaching to their meanings very interesting and new. I would urge people to surrender and give it their all, don’t be scared of what comes up and trust in letting go. The experience was far more powerful than I anticipated and the result is a lighter and happier me.”
“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”
“One of the most important weeks of my life”
“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.”
