Dan Breakwell

Dan's Yoga journey began in April 2014 when he ran off from one of many challenging "in between" jobs as a performer, in pursuit of something more fulfilling. He made an impulsive decision to embark on a 200hr teacher training with The Yoga People in Ashtanga Vinyasa and Rocket. Since then he has been inspired by a wide range of practices and trainings, such as Yin Yoga, Traditional Chinese Medicine/ Meridian theory, Qigong, Kirtan, Mandala Vinyasa, Shamanism and Chakra Philosophy.

In recent years Dan's main mentor has been Mimi Kuo-Deemer, through whom he discovered his love of Qigong. He now teaches mostly Qigong, which he also weaves into vinyasa flow and Yin Yoga classes to bring about a more somatic and embodied experience. He also trained under the guidance of esteemed Kirtan leader Nikki Slade, in her first Learn to Lead Kirtan training which affirmed a more holistic connection to voice (on and off stage.)

Recently in 2019 Dan took the plunge and went back to Drama school to complete his MA in Musical Theatre Performance. Inevitably the worlds of Qigong and Yoga began to mingle with theatre through his MA project research into the eastern influences on actor training, and his exploration of the effects of Qigong (and the five element practices) on the performative voice. Dan now returns to both performing and teaching with a new string to his bow facilitating workshops on voice for yoga teachers, with the hope of inspiring people to release inhibition, and truly embody the words they speak with intention.
