An Array of Services
Breathing Space offers services to clients of all ages and backgrounds, encouraging a holistic approach to health. For example, regular physical practise of yoga can significantly enhance emotional wellbeing, whilst developing greater mindfulness can allow enhanced management of physical pain as well as rendering life a more vivid experience. Traditional Eastern and more modern Western approaches are integrated within practices, with the aim of providing a complete wellness experience.
As an experienced teacher, Alison is able to offer mind-body workshops or mini-retreats for individuals or groups. She is qualified to teach Mindfulness in School Project's '.B Foundations' and offers tailor-made curricula specifically designed for teachers, parents and sixth form students.
This popular service, suitable for all, is based on the belief that mental and physical health are interrelated, and should be conditioned together. With this practice, coordinating breathing and movement develops strength, flexibility and concentration, allowing participants to relax and to improve control of body and mind.
Contact Breathing Space to arrange private or small group classes for all ages and abilities, in the studio or at an alternative venue.

Eight-week courses are offered in Mindfulness-based Stress Reduction (MBSR), or 'Finding Peace in a Frantic World'. Alison is listed with the British Association of Mindfulness-Based Approaches (BAMBA) and qualified to teach the Mindfulness in Schools Project's .B Foundations eight-week course designed for groups of schoolteachers, parents and sixth form students. These mindfulness courses reduce distraction by fleeting thoughts, enhance ability to manage emotions and allow us to respond rather than to react to life's challenges, whether physical or emotional.
MBSR sessions generally last 2.5 hours with a home practice requirement of around an hour per day. A confidential online application process (see Mindfulness Application within 'Book Online') is undertaken to ensure suitability of these courses for potential participants.
Mindfulness courses may also be delivered one-to-one, either in person or online where circumstances necessitate this approach.
Mindfulness taster sessions can be arranged, either at the Breathing Space studio in Ramsey, or in workplace settings.
