I am Jez Grattan-Kane.. a modern day Yogi.
Based in Bristol UK, I teach movement and breath in relation to physical and mental wholeness. This is through a synthesis of Yoga, Breathwork and studying Integrative Transpersonal Psychology. My motivation for this work is fueled by a love of ecology and curiosity to the embodied and relational nature of human experience.
Through my own journey of healing, wholing and recovery from addiction, I have developed a fascination with the interplay between Mind, Body and Breath.
It is my long term aim to support the reanimation of relationships of care, curiosity and reciprocity, within and between the human and more than human world. Working with both individuals and groups to raise our awareness. Supporting our integrating of the past, by both being with, what might be difficult and cultivating well being, in the present. Then deepening our response-ability to consciously co-creating a future.

Life, dreams, friends, kin and land are key teachers for me too.
Jez is a real, modern yogi: an inquirer, practitioner, someone wholeheartedly committed to raising his vibration. When he shares his practice, you can be sure it is honest, deep and, above all, kind.
Fiona Sundari Law, Viveka Gardens Yoga Farm
Jez held an amazing space for us to dive into the journey with breath. His presence was calming and reassuring. The space itself was beautiful. I thoroughly recommend working with Jez and feel excited to have come into contact with what he offers
I found the session a welcoming and unpretentious introduction to meditation. Jez introduced some thought provoking ideas and practices that were easy to understand and try out. I enjoyed it a lot.
Ben Tuckwell, Torchbox
Fantastic simple and profound teachings in a deeply relaxing and nourishing atmosphere.
I have known Jez for over 15 years and I know him to be extremely kind, creative and deep thinking. Jez has committed countless thousands of hours to mastering his art, whilst remaining humble, open minded and curious. Jez’s wealth of life experience that few can match gives him a wisdom and balance that pervade his practices and teachings. Above all, he is a a great friend and inspiration.
Tom Fleming, Oxford
“I have gained so much for my continued journey with Jez and breathwork. Each session is so very different and works through different layers of myself. I have tried a lot of different approaches to support myself into health over the years but none of them have met me in the same way that this practice continues to offer. I think this healing is a combination of Jez’s ability to meet me with care and reflection, the safe space he creates and the depth of his own personal journey using Breath. Jez has also introduced various Breath practices to take into daily life to support me day to day to move into more alignment with my whole self.”Clara, Bristol
I have always known Jez to be a calm and compassionate presence, who has helped me gain insight and clarity into any problem I have put before him.
I always leave Jez’s Breathwork sessions feeling much better than when I arrived. This is partly due to the practice itself, but equally a product of Jez’s professional, accepting attitude. As a coach, Jez makes makes me feel safe in my vulnerability, instinctively knowing when to push me and when to back off. He is very knowledgeable and provides great aftercare, taking the time to explain complex ideas in a way I can understand. I would (and have) recommend Jez as a Breathwork Coach to anyone who is curious about the practice.
