As a movement educator and myofascial release practitioner the concept of breath has fascinated and influenced me for decades. I experienced my first lung collapse at the age of 36. Before I was fully recovered I experienced another, and then another and another... at some point I stopped counting. Each pneumothorax is a new opportunity to experience the rhythm, the cycle of breath.
I am committed to the continuous research of fascia and the transformative quality of breath. Living with catamenial pneumothorax, motivates me to this sustained investigation.
I am the creator of Moving Fascia®, a somatic movement method that has helped hundreds restore ease, minimise pain, and enhance fluid movement and breath. I hold a Postgraduate Diploma in Anatomical Sciences from the University of Edinburgh and teach embodied anatomy to movement teachers. Alongside my work as an educator, I am collaborating on a research project exploring “The effect of breath on calming tremor for Parkinson’s disease” with researchers from the University of Brighton and Oxford University .
“Breath is the story of an organism and the environment. It is the story of their relationship.
A relationship that can be observed as the dance of continuous exchange.”
Yesterday's Breathwork session was a real turning point for me. I felt my shoulders and neck release and feel wider and more open. I finally feel I'm conquering my breath issues.
Thank you so very much for all you are giving, I am gaining the tools to better improve my clients well being and health.
Already with the practices I have been able to do I feel more in balance with myself and the re birthing of me. Thank you for your great presentations.
I've found it so useful to gain a deeper understanding of what is contained within the thorax and how that relates to the quality and potential of/for breath and movement within different areas. My body and mind are getting together and having an 'A-ha' party!
As the practice progressed both the inhale and exhale phases settled quite naturally into an equal length. I am left with a sense of release and a sense of inner space and peace. Thank you Ana

Yes! All live sessions will be recorded and put into our private online platform where you can revisit them anytime. Further discussion will be encouraged. You will be able to comment and interact in a private forum with those on the programme and submit any questions to Ana, just as you would if you were participating in a live Q&A.
What do I need for the movement sessions?
You will need the Moving Fascia SOFT balls for the experiential movement sessions. Purchase them online at products.movingfascia.com
A programme not a course?
We do not see Breathing As One as a course. Breathing as One is a personal journey that will lead you, as an individual, through the first six months of the year. Ana will be guiding breathing practice month-by-month embarking in an informative and transformative experience. Each month, Ana will share a short presentation focusing on the biotensegral, biochemical and psychosocial aspects of breath to support your understanding. These will be combined with guided breathing exploration and discussion.
How much interaction and support is provided?
Ana will guide the group through weekly LIVE sessions to help support your understanding and experience. Our online platform will include all recordings and the private community forum will allow you to interact with Ana throughout the six months. It presents an ongoing opportunity to engage with other movement teachers and practitioners, continuing discussion and exploration, and helps to create accountability for your own practice in between sessions.
Do I need to be a qualified movement practitioner to join the course?
You don't! Unlike courses on our Moving Fascia® educational pathway, you do not need to be a qualified movement practitioner to join this programme.
This programme is open to movement teachers, manual therapists, therapists of other modalities as well as medical practitioners and anyone that is interested in exploring breath work at a deeper level.
