Hi martin I just wanted to say thank you for all your help with my pregnancy and birth.

Before the birth the breathing really helped me to come in contact with my self, my body, and my baby in a very deep way.  During the birth Holographic Breathing helped ease and clear the pain of the contractions.  This was such medicine, so effective and pleasurable.  Big hug and sending lots of love.

Being introduced to Holographic Breathing by Martin Jones was an immediate revelation. The simplicity of the initial practice reminded me of my first session of Pranayama with Philip Jones, many years ago.  Once Holographic Breathing was established, it felt so easy and natural that I could not imagine not using it through the day and through life.  Holographic Breathing is of value in all the areas of teaching within Birthlight.  It is well worth trying and I found that once I had increased the awareness of my jaw, cranium and pelvis while breathing, there was just no going back!

Holographic Breathing was like a friend helping me to handle the intensity of the contractions. Iris was Lotus Birthed at home after a natural labour. It was first natural birth in my family for decades.

I am so happy to have learnt and practised Holographic Breathing through my pregnancy.  This was essential for the birth. Now all I can do is express is my gratitude to Martin, not only for what we have done during pregnancy, but also that he was there for me at the birth.  In one desperate moment hearing his voice was all I needed to get where I wanted to be.  I gave birth totally naturally to my wonderful baby girl.

 

I used Holographic Breathing to healing myself after the birth and  now use it for healing my children when they are sick. It feels so natural to breathe holographically and I am curious what comes next…..

 

Thank you Martin!

I first experienced the Holographic Breathing with martin Jones at The Global Inspiration Conference in the UK last July.  I found this way of breathing so deep, gentle and grounding and have continued to work with him in individual sessions. Martin's pace and style of teaching is as grounded and gentle as the work. As with all things that have a simplicity, when learning them you begin to appreciate just how rich and layered they really are.

This deeply relaxing breathing system is well known for helping mothers through pregnancy and Childbirth.  Most mothers say that Holographic Breathing significantly reduces the pain of labour, and that being able to relax through birth helped them have a more fulfilling and enjoyable experience.

 

Holographic Breathing can also help relax and align the spine and pelvis through pregnancy and birth.  This is very helpful for relieving discomforts that can build at this time.

 

After Giving birth many mothers find Holographic Breathing Wonderful for recuperating. Also there are ways of using this breathing to heal your baby especially if they become ill with different child hood illness.

 

 

Letter from Francoise Freedman – Yoga author and founder of the birthlight trust.

 

Being introduced to Holographic Breathing by Martin Jones was an immediate revelation. The simplicity of the initial practice reminded me of my first session of Pranayama with Philip Jones, many years ago. Once Holographic Breathing was established, it felt so easy and natural that I could not imagine not using it through the day and through life.

 

As a yoga teacher and therapist, I am extremely suspicious of methods and approaches that are not sanctioned by the Yoga Tradition, particularly in relation to breathing. For this reason, at Birthlight we do not endorse the breathing methods used in re-birthing and in some hypno-birthing approaches. Not wanting to discard or recommend something I had not experienced, I first read the documents on Holographic Breathing on Martin Jones’s website. Detailed explanations based on anatomy gave me an incentive to experiment with this mode of breathing. My main preoccupation was to find out whether the Holographic Breathing would be compatible with Yoga teachings or not. After a number of phone-taught sessions with Martin, I am convinced that there is no contradiction between any aspect of the Holographic Breathing and Yoga. On the contrary, using Holographic Breathing can enhance the practice of full yogic breath and produces an instant feeling of relaxation, of the kind that one can experience in the hands of a skilled cranio-sacral osteopath.

 

For Birthlight teachers, facilitating the interaction between the lower jaw and the pelvis during labour is of importance. While it has become common knowledge (long shared among midwives) that women do better if they do not tighten their lower jaw and clench their teeth in childbirth, fear and forceful pushing with breath retention create tight locks. The Holographic Breathing is based primarily on undoing this jaw lock and then on exploring connections between relaxed maxillary bones and the pelvis. Further connections follow. Discovering them has been one of the most interesting explorations I have recently experienced in relation to promoting the greater enjoyment of pregnancy and childbirth.

 

Holographic Breathing is of value in all the areas of teaching within Birthlight. It is well worth trying and you will probably find that once you increase the awareness of your jaws, cranium and pelvis while breathing, there is just no going back!

Martin guided me through Holographic breathing sessions in the run up to the birth of my first child, Iris. We were interested to see how Holographic Breathing supported the pre-natal and birthing process. The most powerful experience was the recollection of my skull being stuck while my own birth took place, which resulted in my mother having an emergency C-section. When we released the anxiety about being stuck my own pelvis started to move with fluidity in preparation for the birth. When labour started, Holographic Breathing was like a friend helping me to handle the intensity of the contractions. Iris was Lotus Birthed at home after a natural labour. It was first natural birth in my family for decades.
