“My healing journey is married with my ability to be present and in service to others. How can I hold space for others if I am not willing to tread that path myself”
Hannah strongly believes that everyone’s access to inner healing lies within them, and in their sense of connection to others. She believes that each of us are our healers, and as such, her sessions will guide you to accessing any parts of yourself you may be holding out of awareness.
A graduate of Contemporary dance in 2004 she soon found this approach to movement and the idea of performing uncomfortable and so began her journey into Buddhism, Mindfulness and Yoga.
Her first step after completing a Hot Yoga Certification was teaching Yoga in Cornwall. Closely followed was a RYS 200 Hrs Yoga Alliance Still Flowing Yoga Teacher Training in Ibiza. This training which adopted a somatic (body-oriented) integrated approach to vinyasa flow & Scaravelli inspired Hatha Yoga. All of these practices were clearly founded upon principles of Buddhist Insight Meditation and Mindfulness.
In 2016 while in Bali she began her breathwork journey with Anthony Abbagnano and The Alchemy of Breath, completing the year-long breathwork facilitator training alongside working closely with Anthony at Alchemy HQ for the next 2 years.
Today, while still in co-creation with Anthony and the Alchemy of Breath, Hannah is passionately focused on sharing the tools for a Grounded.Life. With the use of breathwork, movement, core energetics and sound, she works with groups, corporate teams and individuals, holding the space for you to explore your truth and breath into your fullest being.
Hannah N supports individuals to reconnect to the power of their breath as a vehicle for self-empowerment, enhanced well-being and transformation. Hannah recognises the breath not only as the very foundation on which our lives are built but when consciously applied is a profound ally of mind, body & spirit, serving as the bridge between the conscious and the subconscious, enabling expanded awareness & improved health.
As well as working with the breath, Hannah N also uses vocal sound practises and song during workshops acknowledging that each voice holds it’s own unique vibratory signature and is an instrument of healing.
“Our voice is our very own personalised tuning fork and our voice like our breath, goes with us wherever we go. Our voice and breath are one of the very few things in life we can have conscious control of, making them the most empowering of healing tools as we have access to them any given time.”
She is holds a loving and tender space helping individuals and groups explore their innate capacity for healing and empowerment through their breath & voice to access their own inner resources for personal development and transformation.
