About Me

Welcome. I am Jez Grattan-Kane.

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.

At the heart of my craft is 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 explore and raise our awareness.. Supporting our integrating of the past, by both being with, what might be difficult… and cultivating well being, in the present. Together, deepening our response-ability to consciously co-creating a future.

How I work

I work with individuals and groups through synthesis of exploring together the Breath, modern anatomy, psychology & the time tested methods of Yoga. Inviting the drawing forth of your experience from our co-created relationship.

 

This can be as a role of Teacher guiding exploration of direct methods of inquiry.  Or as a Facilitator holding space, for the forming, focus and emergence of a group. And as a Mentor working with individuals, as a guide alongside them on their journey.

 

By developing awareness, capacity and quality of breath. It can be a key thread, animating through everything we do, supporting the Physical, Mental, Emotional and Soocial health. It is the same body, breath and nervous system we use to sense these intersecting areas of life.

 

The Breath is always here in the present, supporting us to navigate the now which is always different. Cultivating a relationship with the Breath, invites for you to listen deeper, receptively and actively craft it as resource, wether to forging resilience to stress or cultivating rest.
