I am Jez Grattan-Kane.. a modern day Yogi.
Based in Bristol UK, I teach and research movement and breath in relation to physical and mental health. This is through a weave of Yoga, Breathwork and studying Integrative Transpersonal Psychology. My motivation for this work is fueled by a love of nature and curiosity to the potential of human experience.
Through my own journey of acceptance, healing and recovery from addiction, I have developed a fascination with the interplay between Mind, Body and Breath.
It is my long term aim to create a synthesis of somatic, breath, talk therapy and ecopsychology to support the emergent needs of individuals and groups. Integrating the past, increasing well being in the present and consciously co-creating a future.

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
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.

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.
