Breathing Space Weekend

Food for thought, food for the soul, give your spirit a break.

Most of us are so busy and stressed, we ‘can’t see the wood for the trees’.
We feel compelled to keep chipping away at the seemingly never-ending list of jobs and never give ourselves a proper break to see the bigger picture of where our life is going.


Breathe, enjoy.

Attending a ‘Breathing Space’ weekend is the perfect opportunity to ‘sharpen your axe’ and enable you to take stock of what you’d like to improve in your life. Give yourself a well-deserved break from the ‘busy-ness’ of life and discover powerful techniques to accelerate your progress.

We are very excited that our ‘Breathing Space’ weekend will take place at ‘Blissland’,  an amazing venue, and an  experience in its own right. Click here for more details about Blissland.

During the weekend in this delightful Cheshire property we will be offering various activities that can be enjoyed by all, regardless of age, health or ability.
Come and try some Chi Kung, mindfulness practice, Yoga, Creative Visualisation and relaxation techniques.
There will also be ample time for peace, meditation, walking, reflecting, sharing moments with like-minded people, and enjoyable social evenings!

Massage sessions,  tailored to your needs will be available, to be booked in advance.

We also have a Reiki practitioner on our team, who will offer this if required.

YogaShoot-2-7100-DSC_0243 At the end of the weekend, we hope that you will be able to take away some of these techniques to help you deal with stress and restore peace in your daily life.

The programme will run from Friday (29th September) 3 pm for welcome and introductions, until Sunday (1st October)  3 pm.

We are able to offer some very comfortable accommodation  at Blissland, first come, first served! (please see fees and details below).

There are also B&B and hotels nearby in Congleton.  These are all listed on

I went on this weekend expecting to enjoy it and have a much needed break away from the stresses of daily life. What I didn't expect was to come away with a totally different mind set.
The course really helped me to realise the value and importance of making time for me.
During the whole weekend I did not give a single thought to any of the things that were causing me stress. I was completely focused on what we were doing and thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it.
I now make sure I have some time, even if it's only once a week for half an hour to meditate or do some relaxation or yoga.
The tai chi had a real impact on me and I am planning to attend a regular class in the new year.
I can't put into words how much I have gained from having some "breathing space". I take something from it every day.
Thank you all for sharing your knowledge, time and wisdom.


The weekend delivered everything it said it would.  It was joyful, relaxing and kickstarted me into getting back into practices that I had let drop years previously.  I have now started Qigong in my local library and I now meditate in the morning and evening.  Just waiting to find a yoga class now.  Olga and Frederique and Malcolm were wonderful facilitators and made it a warm enjoyable experience


When I booked to go on the Breathing Space Weekend, I didn't really know what to expect but felt in need of something different.  What I found was better than anticipated.  The venue right in the middle of Devon was so beautiful with great accommodation and lovely food.  It was good to try new activities - Tai Chi, Chi Kung, Yoga - and to find out more about creative visualisation and mindfulness.  The teaching by Olga, Frederique and Malcolm was excellent - just the right amount of firmness combined with a sense of humour.  It was a weekend with wonderful company and I came away feeling relaxed and refreshed.
