We imagine a world where a person doesn't need to recover from their childhood. A world in which all beings are valued for who they are, cultures are respected, and all voices are heard.
We can co-create this world by first attending to our own preconceived notions and personal belief systems - by resolving our inner roadblocks which prevent us from being fully present with, capable of seeing, hearing, and accepting of others.

Sarah Forristal, Breathwork Facilitator
Sarah is a breathwork facilitator and holistic therapist, specialising in massage therapy and reflexology. Creative and curious, Sarah studied art after leaving school and then went on to train in bodywork. Immersing herself in Chinese medicine theory and the practice of yoga, qigong and meditation opened up a connection to the internal landscape of the body. Through her training with a Daoist master she learned to become aware of the subtle layers and to see life and nature in a new way.
‘I felt drawn to breathwork and after hearing the call repeatedly I first trained in pranayama techniques and then found One Breath Institute. Breathwork training with OBI opened a door of discovery through which I am continuously learning.’
