‘Since discovering conscious breathwork over nine months ago, it has become a daily part of my wellbeing routine, which has led to transformation in many aspects of my life since.’
Since childhood, I have struggled with low self-worth which kept me feeling small, stuck and powerless to make changes throughout much of my life. Practising this technique on a regular basis has given me the clarity, courage and strength to take ownership to create an expanded life which now feels vibrant and purposeful. Today, I feel awake, alive and more like my true self than ever.
My first encounter with breathwork was through a group workshop led by Rebecca. As a yogi, I was intrigued by this technique as breathwork is one of my favourite aspecst of the yoga practise …Transformational Breath opened up a WHOLE new world of inner connection!
Within minutes, I connected deeply with this powerful technique during the first session. I felt years of bottled-up feelings and stress release from my body. I sobbed throughout the session, yet I felt absolutely safe and nurtured by the support I received from the breath facilitators who were so competent at reading my body and responding to its needs with touch and affirmations.
This was the first space that I ever truly felt comfortable enough to let go and truly surrender; like so many of us, I shrink or hide parts of myself to appease others, it was liberating to remove the mask. I felt like my wounded childhood self was being cared for and this was exactly what I needed to heal and start to move forward. Each session helped me to understanding patterns of behaviour and situations in my life which kept me feeling stagnant.
I gradually learned how to embrace and love all aspects of myself and let go of the blame stories I’d so desperately clung to and had made an identity out of. I made peace with myself, made decisions based on my intuition and began to feel at ease in myself for the very first time. I was now able to write a new story for myself…
This month I leave my secure, yet stagnant job of eight years to share my passions: yoga and the wellbeing of young people to create my new venture ‘Yoga Seedlings’ – promoting yoga as a way of life from a young age. Breathwork reconnected me to myself and my powers – allowing me the clarity to see my potential and purpose to develop my best contribution to the world. Breathwork gave me access to my superpowers!
Rebecca is an exceptional facilitator of breathwork, profoundly knowledgeable and kind. I will be eternally grateful for the addition of this method in my wellness toolkit and for being so caringly guided on numerous sessions through the layers of release which eventually brought me home to ME.

‘Oh Breathing Tree, you beauty, you did it again. Thank you, thank you, thank you.’
For me this workshop was even more transformational than the last.
I don’t know what I love most about conscious breathing:
The soundwork from the amazing Leo Cosendai
The way each and every facilitator is so very competent at reading the body
The fact that almost everyone leaves having experienced a shift; a different person than the one that walked in.
The expansive way I feel after 3 hours of exquisite breathwork… I could go on…
As a practitioner whose work is based around helping others find their growth, I am so glad I found this for me.

‘Words will never accurately describe what I have gained from Transformational Breath and I can only offer real gratitude to all those who spend their days teaching this incredible practice.’
I felt years worth of trapped emotions leaving my body, I cried a lot, in the most healing way imaginable, I felt like a child that was cared for and that I was safe in this world finally, something that was absent from my childhood. I hadn’t cried in years before I started working with Rebecca but have since really grieved my childhood in ways that have allowed me to heal and move on. Something I can confidently say would not have happened had I not been working with this method. I will be eternally grateful for this method and for being so caringly guided on numerous sessions through the trauma and depression I was carrying on my shoulders. Words will never accurately describe what I have gained from Transformational Breath and I can only offer real gratitude to all those who spend their days teaching this incredible practice.
Nearly a year on, I feel almost like a different version of myself.
This time last year, I was so lost to myself, something needed to give. It didn’t look like rock bottom to anyone else after all the years of external upheaval but inside it was. Frazzled from years of trauma, stress, anxiety etc. desperately spinning the wheels to keep the show on the road and hating on myself constantly. I didn’t know which fire to put out first. 12th July was the start of something shifting though. I remember the date as something else happened that day and on the way to work, I had listened to Fearne’s podcast with you. My intuition urged me to look you up and so I did.
Nearly a year on, I feel almost like a different version of myself. Still very much a work in progress but in such a better place. With the breathwork, I have been able to put down some heavy baggage and find compassion for myself where there wasn’t any. And now little sparks of light, peace and permission to be a version of myself that perhaps I was always meant to be, exist instead. I trusted and liked you from the moment we met and I’m so grateful for the space you have held for me and your wisdom. And so, I’m very happy to give some of my time and knowledge in return. It feels like good reciprocity!
You are a lighthouse Rebecca!
Thank you for today’s breath session. I’ve been revisiting old stuff that is familiar and visiting old stuff for the first time – past history to do with my mother and her family – and mine. Many untimely deaths. Distorted survival (refugee lives). Long story. So I have been having lots of thoughts and thought dreams, hard to describe really because it’s not mechanical thinking. More like a lake stirring and giving up its secrets. Maybe that makes sense. It feels like a relief and an awakening, or many reliefs and awakenings. I think you work a kind of magic as well as being incredibly knowledgeable – it’s a wonderful thing to be so well informed and so intuitive at the same time. I often see people sacrificing the one for the other so when they combine it’s like a perfect song.
First time in 2 months I have allowed the tears and embraced myself. Didn’t realize I had so much stored up. Thank you. My jaw, diaphragm and solar plex thank you too. Those are my tight spots that form my wall of protection and they needed to be broken down and hugged-loved-accepted and released. You are a lighthouse Rebecca!
Doing your breathing exercises is making an enormous difference to my life
I just wanted to write and tell you what a difference your podcast is making to me. I’ve suffered with anxiety on and off for most of my adult life but not for some time. However the recent lockdown has brought the most intense anxiety I’ve ever experienced. I have two young children so I don’t get a huge amount of time to myself. Doing your breathing exercises is making an enormous difference to my life, I feel like I have something I can rely on to help me cope. Thank you so much. It’s such a wonderful thing to do – to give these resources to people for free. Thank you thank you – what a difference you’re making.
I have just done the deep release and felt almost tearful with relief! Just gorgeous!
