My Story

Back in 2016 my life looked great on paper... I had a great job, owned a flat, went on nice holidays... but something didn't feel right & that feeling wouldn't go away.I didn't trust myself or my intuition, my head always led over my heart. I struggled to be vulnerable & open, to fully connect with people. Enough was enough! So I left everything behind to travel India & Nepal, exploring various modalities along the way (yoga, Vipassana meditation, Human Design, astrology etc). I set up my soulful photography business (brennaduncan.co.uk) & trained as a life coach blending the two together.In 2018 I experienced Transformational Breath® for the first time & was blown away by the sheer power of my own breath. I had a big emotional release that first time - rolling around on the floor laughing & crying simultaneously. It was MEGA! I felt lighter, clearer & more connected to myself than ever before... I knew this was going to be a huge part of my healing journey, so I immediately signed up for a week long seminar in Glastonbury.I remember the facilitator telling me my breath pattern showed that I was protecting my heart... unable to fully let people in. That struck a chord. Fast forward & here I am ready to share this incredible practice with you.Over three years of going deep into the breath & I feel able to trust myself & my intuition more, my relationships with friends & family have improved & I'm much happier & balanced.Are you intrigued? Book a session with me today & start your breath journey to a happier & more fulfilling life.
