Each one of us has a unique breathing pattern and we hold onto stress and tension within our respiratory muscles which restricts us from breathing deeply and fully.

In this 2.5 workshop you will learn about how and where your body holds on to tension and practice the combination therapy, Transformational Breath, which involves circular breathing, acupressure (light touch – no needles!), sound, movement and positive affirmations.This cutting-edge breath work can be powerful and transformative and great for those committed to change and self improvement.  This will be experienced with music including live drumming from Ella Oliver who is a certified Transformational Breath facilitator and Reiki practitioner

You will experience the benefits of learning how to breathe fully and release tension from the body with ease by learning the cutting edge breath-work, Transformational Breath. The body and mind can feel lighter, freer and much more relaxed just after one session.

  • Improve digestion, boost circulation, increase energy and fitness.
  • Generate feelings of calm, release old emotions, feel lighter and more focused.
  • Gain clarity, inspiration and connection with your intuition and de-clutter the mind of negative chit chat.

Ella is a certified Transformational Breath® facilitator and Reiki Master. Ella’s experience with Reiki started in 2007 when it helped her to address challenges she was facing at the time & gave her an ability to reframe her choices. She went on to train in and work with Reiki as part of her own healing and to support her work with others through this modality. Combining the therapeutic effects of Reiki with the meditative effects of Transformational Breathing and the healing beat of the drum has allowed Ella to add a further dimension to her Reiki work in supporting deep change and relaxation in those she works with. Coming from a background in law and having had several of her own businesses, Ella is particularly aware of the clarity of thought, relaxation, stress management and energising effects of her chosen practices as well as their ability to deeply heal.

Reiki Drum which will be led by Ella Oliver combines the essential beauty of and subtle power of Reiki energy with the sacred essence of shamanic drumming. The use of drums has featured for centuries in rituals of many cultures for meditation, healing and celebrating. Research is showing the power of drumming for healing a range of medical and mental health conditions. In his paper ‘The Healing Power of the Drum’ Robert Lawrence Friedman psychotherapist and drum facilitator looks at the effect that drumming has on particular groups of people affected by Alzhiemer’s, post traumatic stress disorder, sufferers of anger and pent up negativity, at risk adolescents and executives suffering from stress. He found that using the drum allowed for relaxation and the release of tension, creation of energy in the tired, release of anger and pent up emotions, feelings of euphoria, anger release and feelings of connection.

The power of Integrating the breath and drum with Reiki brings about deep relaxation, release of bodily tension & reconnection with optimal energetic vibration. Combining these techniques also promotes deep emotional healing, letting go of deep physical pain and tension and the potential for mental and emotional reprogramming of old destructive patterns of behaviour.

“I really feel as though there has already been a huge shift in every area. I feel much more relaxed and ‘stable’ and my breathing is altogether much better. Both my daughter and my friend who I have not seen for a few weeks, said I looked great and there was definitely something different about me. Thank you for introducing me to this amazing technique!“ Transformational Breath Workshop Attendee
