About the Event

Join the Breathwork Revolution with this course designed to offer you practices and ideas which help bring about greater balance, empowerment and alignment – tools for life that have the power to transform wounds to wisdom and help you connect deeply to the awe of being alive.

As women living in a modern society, we have freedoms our grandmothers could only dream of…and yet…levels of stress, anxiety and overwhelm are commonplace and many of us have a level of disconnection from our most valuable ally – our body. Our breath patterns reflect the level of ease or tension that we live with…when we harness and free the breath, we quickly begin to feel ripples of increased ease flowing throughout our lives in so many ways.

This small group container (max 6 women) is a chance to deeply connect with yourself via an array of Breathwork practices – and primarily the Conscious Connected Breath. A tool of deep emotional release that all of us have access to and can be used at any time to feel more expansive, connected to ourselves and others, in our power, relaxed and regulated through our nervous system.

You are welcome and encouraged to bring all of yourself in this invitation to reset and rise – to lovingly draw down the layers of coping, adaption and trauma to reveal your innate wisdom and sense of internal compass. To feel who you really are underneath the layers, to experience clarity and insight on your unique circumstances and to create a clear path moving forward.

Because the likelihood is that at some point we suppressed some big emotions and they got held in our bodies. As this happened we developed patterns of contraction or protection. Then these patterns got activated again when similar emotions arose.

By tracing our physical patterns – we can become aware of our ‘stories’ of old pains, hurts and happenings that still affect us. And as we start to reset, we’ll become aware of old emotional patterns via contraction in the body and in our breath patterns. The techniques you’ll learn, help to free deep tension and the energy that can be used to express who you are now, instead of repeating an old story stuck in your body from days gone by.

Because once a pattern is learned – it is accessed automatically and becomes second nature. The body doesn’t differentiate between helpful and unhelpful patterns. Physical contractions and habits are acquired through repetition, and can be undone by consciously practicing new patterns within your body and nervous system.

So in this course… we move freely…we dance…we share…we learn…we breathe in different ways to release outdated patterns and create new neural pathways in the direction we want to move..

You’ll also have a chance to consider the energy dynamics at play in your life…being in the world requires we animate our internal masculine, while our creative, relational feminine side often becomes relegated – you’ll learn how this masculine/feminine balance can play out in your bodily systems too and how to balance them out.

And you’ll be offered a variety of tools to help reset and regulate your nervous system…from the Conscious Connected Breath – which activates the system to help release deep stored emotional imprints – to calming breath practices designed to nurture and relax you. This is alongside understanding some of the theory behind how your nervous system works.

You’ll consider what habits, beliefs, and patterns are driving you and have a chance to consciously shift these so they support your vision and direction moving forward.

And you’ll have a 1:1 session with me where you’ll be offered a breath pattern analysis/body mapping and deep experience of Breathwork – with clear next steps via coaching in the session.

As you experience the unique blend of practices that work for you – you’ll have the chance to develop a personalised programme for yourself that will enable you to reset yourself whenever needed.

As you reset…you feel more expansive…your sense of potential grows…you feel more connected to yourself and the world around you…you rise…

Because does any of this sound familiar?

Feeling overwhelmed or stressed by the demands placed on you…

Your body feels tense, tight, uncomfortable, or hurts in places…

You have tried talking therapy, yet your body is still telling you something’s wrong…

Maybe there has been loss or grief in your life…

You feel numb..

You find yourself over eating..

You are experiencing psychosomatic symptoms..

You’ve experienced trauma…

Just imagine for a moment…

- Feeling no tension in your body

- Having complete clarity on certain steps you need to take

Hey Love..

I’m Anna Brook and I felt the call to create this container after experiencing the transformative power of breathwork myself. I had immersed in the calming nature of yogic pranayama (breathwork) for years in my yoga practice/teaching, before discovering the activating force of the conscious connected breath during a period of grief. It was nothing short of an awakening…

It was like therapy with no words, and relieved the intense physicality that emotional waves can cause like no other thing I had come across. I felt a deep connection to myself, the world around me and source, and states of bliss beyond anything I experienced before, alongside electrical charge through the body as my body recalibrated itself. It was phenomenal and I knew I would need to train in and share it, alongside the self development provided by my Breathwork community.

I have soaked up the medicine of spending time in many women’s circles and containers, alongside running my own over the last 10 years. So I have combined these techniques with my other passion – that of feminine awakening and empowerment to develop this deep dive course for you.

I have seen Anna for some 121 Breathwork sessions. I know what it is to be held in a nurturing container without judgement and she is the real deal. Breath work is a powerful method of meeting emotions and sensations in the body and needs to be done in a way that is not overwhelming - Anna meets this sweet spot. The sessions with touch and in person were particularly nourishing. I have treasured our sessions and her guidance - she just knows how to hold you. So thankful for her gentle presence.

 - Jo Miller (Somatic Therapist)

"I have found the breathwork sessions with Anna to have been profoundly healing & releasing on both a physical and an energetic level. With the full space and time given to me, to really release and to help rebalance both my body and mind.

The healing space is both beautiful and nurturing, setup with thought and care and I felt very safe and protected within it.

Anna is an incredibly wise, kind and sensitive space holder and healer, giving me a safe, protected space to release and reflect. I feel very fortunate to have been able to work with Anna’s breathwork practise and found the whole experience life changing. Thank you."

- Rachel Holland

"I had a wonderful session with Anna learning breathwork that left me feeling energized, detoxified of stuck emotions and more in connection with my heartspace. It was a great mix of incorporating the breathwork with movement, touch and relaxation all to lovely music and guided by her gentle, kind and enthusing manner and expertise. Would highly recommend it for busy bees needing some rejuvenation, health and wellbeing".

- Suhraiya

‘Breathwork at Shala allows a focus and clarity of thought I’ve not experienced before and my sessions with Anna have been transformational.  While the practice is strengthening and cleansing, emotionally and physically, it’s also very accessible, with tangible results from the outset. I came through curiosity and I’m now hooked!"

- Emily Chalmers

Breathwork for me has been a real game changer.  From my very first session my chattering brain connected to my body in ways it hasn’t done before (or for a very long time). And, for me, it’s helped unlock a few things I couldn’t quite reach before. Anna is wonderful and creates such a kind and safe space. I always leave feeling calmer and with an all-over energy that makes me smile.
