RESET, an urban day retreat at Bethnal Green’s Town Hall Hotel between 10am and 530pm on Sunday January 21st weaves breath and movement with delicious plant-based heathy food and goodies to enable mums to reset themselves for 2018 after a busy festive period.

To book, please go to and book online. Please call 02035837530 with any queries.

Designed with mums in mind, you will be led through a series of yoga inspired movements and postures to help access a fuller respiratory system. You’ll start with a full Transformational Breath session followed by deep relaxation and a simple, short meditation. After a delicious vegan lunch, we’ll close the afternoon with a yin yoga practice and meditation led by Vanessa Bridgman to create space in the body by working with the deep connective tissue fascia - more rejuvenating than a nap. No yoga experience is required and you stay in postures for a longer period of time.


Breathing correctly is essential for feeling well. A full breath can help you feel more energised, less stressed and learning new breathing exercises can help you enjoy a deeper sleep. Everything you learn on the day can then be practiced at home.


Transformational Breath®, is a self-healing technique that helps people correct old unhealthy patterns of breathing and helps to access the full potential of their breathing system for better physical, emotional and mental well-being.  The connected pattern of conscious breathing is a natural, safe and easy –to-learn technique, which has proven to have many benefits almost universally, including increased energy, better immune response and increased ability to deal with stress in a positive way.  


Diaphragmatic breathing is paramount to the Transformational Breath® process.  Encouraging a deep breath into the abdomen is not only relaxing; it’s been scientifically proven to positively affect the heart, brain, digestive and immune system. Once the breath is moving in the abdomen, the upper lungs can be activated so eventually the breath is full, connected and active.  


Venue:  Town Hall Hotel, 8 Patriot Square, London E2 9NF


Cost:  £110. Early bird pricing of £90 if booked before December 31st

The velocity of urban lifestyles led Vanessa to explore holistic pathways to that elusive balance. As the unneeded fell away in her search for steady footing, it was the constant of her yoga practise that steered the course towards a true knowing and contentment of self.  


Vanessa aims to deeply connect people into the space of their bodies again with the use of emotive language, alignment awareness and an emphasis on the breath. Each class is a journey towards stillness, cultivating a sense of playfulness and curiosity to all that is encountered along the way. 

Vanessa is a 200hr certified Yoga Alliance teacher with the World Conscious Yoga Family. Trained in Hatha’s tradition lineage, she incorporates the dynamacism of her vinyasa roots and the restorative learnings from Yin Yoga and Yoga Nidra certifications for a truly authentic and energetically balanced practice.
