“My work can be quite stressful and anything that was going to make life easier was worth a try. The session started with me indicating to Alan that I was a sceptic. It ended with me being a convert ! I won’t even begin to try and explain the session other than to say that it was a truly life changing experience . I now use ‘the Breath’ on a weekly basis and still get the thrill of the results experienced at my first session. I would recommend the system to the sceptics, the stressed and anyone looking to clear their minds and explore new vistas.”

“As a breath worker myself, I usually manage my own breath sessions, but then sometimes life gets overwhelming and like most people, I need help. In one of those periods I went to Lanzarote for a “Breathing Space” retreat. Alan is such a skilled breath worker as well as a kind, compassionate and loving human being and as the days and the sessions went by, my resistance and distress began to dissipate. Alan gently assisted me to reconnect the pieces and I came home a more complete version of myself than I had felt for a long time. The experience of being held and nurtured by the whole “Breathing Space” package will, I know, have lasting benefits in my life.”

“I have practiced yoga for 8 years and meditation for 5 years and have always struggled with breathing and connecting the breath. I felt constricted across the chest and stuck. I knew I wasn’t breathing to my full capacity and that was the motivating factor for my initial interest in transformational breath. My actual experience extended way beyond any expectations I ever believed for what could be achieved through breathing! The breath work took me on a huge healing journey in 5 days and for the first time in my life I could feel my heart softening and opening. The work Alan does is incredible, truly life changing and transformative – Thank you for an amazing experience, Alan.”

“The ‘Breath Guru’ Alan Dolan wants us to breathe properly: altering the breath to a pattern where the inhale is three times longer than the exhale with no pause between the two parts. ‘Breathing this way puts your whole brain into recalibration mode. In just one session you can feel yourself letting go of emotions you’ve held in, reducing stress and anxiety and raising energy.’ Dolan holds classes in London and at retreats in Lanzarote.

Hollywood celebrities try ‘Transformational Breathing’ to banish anxiety

“So, what’s it all about? Well, it’s a bit like the breathing used in meditation that calms your body down and reduces blood pressure.

The technique centres around inhaling and exhaling at certain rates (roughly each inhalation should be three times longer than exhalation). You’ll need to breathe in for three seconds and out for one.

This allows more oxygen and ‘energy’ to enter your body and allows you to exhale any ’emotional energy’ that’s stored up in your body, according to Alan Dolan, aka ‘the breath guru’…

Kate Hudson and James Bond star Naomie Harris are said to be fans of the technique, which has worked it’s way across the pond to North London.”

Ready, steady… breathe

“…The biggest breathing breakthrough for me was experiencing conscious breathing with Alan Dolan. I found myself taking huge, deep, belly breaths for nearly an hour to a peculiar rhythm, eyes closed, propped up with a stack of cushions. I slid into a meditative, almost ecstatic state. ‘When you breathe like this, you get high,’ he says. ‘I explain it as connecting to the less tangible aspects of our being.’ It certainly proved to me that breath is the connection between the external and internal, bringing that inner peace we all crave…”

Goldie Hawn does it, but is conscious breathing any good?

“I’m not a spiritual person but I’ve just seen a vision of a bat. Not only that but my body is shaking with a force I don’t quite understand, my fingers are tingling and an old operation scar is aching like crazy. And I have just had a huge outpouring of ‘emotional trauma’ – basically, I cried like a baby and have no idea why.”

“But I am not losing my marbles. I’m at a three-day retreat learning to harness the power of breath for better health and wellbeing.”
