Eight session course
This daytime programme will teach you the key mindfulness concepts, theories and practices.
This 'Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction' (MBSR) programme blends meditation, body awareness, and mindful movement. Learning through practice how your body handles, and can resolve, stress.
Through this MBSR course, you will learn skills that can increase your ability to: • Cope with stress, pain, and the challenges of everyday life • Deal with disturbing events with grace and composure • Be fully present and alive in each moment
While MBSR is not a "cure" for serious medical conditions and should not be used as a substitute for medical treatment, research indicates that mindfulness training can have a significant therapeutic effect for those experiencing stress, and stress related conditions such as anxiety, high blood pressure, chronic pain, migraines, heart conditions, diabetes and other ailments. In addition, participants typically report feeling more alive and more "in-tune" with themselves and others.
It is important to note that this 8-week programme includes daily homepractice which is an essential component to truly embodying mindfulness, in the same way that getting the body you desire requires more than just joining the gym!
The timing of this course is important, as the more you fully commit to the 8-weeks the more you will get back from it, so it is important to be able to make the time for it.

About your host, The Breathe Academy
What is The Breathe Academy? This is a place for people to discover ways to be present and begin to understand what they can do to ensure they lead a happy, joyful life through mindful practice and meditation.
What will you learn? We all have the ability to become the master, not the slave, of our minds if we learn how to self-regulate our thoughts and emotions. Mindfulness can provide the vehicle for real and positive change.
How can mindfulness meditation help you? Mindfulness is a powerful tool that allows us to our own particular life from a new vantage point. We can begin to recognise the ways in which we contribute to our own discontent and can decide to make a change.
