Breathworks Mindfulness for Stress Course

The Course

Mindfulness is a simple, practical and effective way of changing your life for the better.

Pressures from work, caring, relationships and family can impact on your mood, energy levels, physical health and happiness.

During my career as a GP I witnessed the toll this can take.

This 8 week Breathworks Mindfulness for Stress course is an evidence based way to improve your well-being, reducing stress and anxiety, learning to experience life just as it is with an attitude of self-compassion.

The skills you learn and embed into your daily life will support and sustain you through all the inevitable challenges that lie ahead.

On this course you will learn how:

  • Breath and body awareness can support you to bring compassion to your experience of stress
  • Mindful movements can help calm body and mind, and establish greater awareness
  • Mindfulness can help you to see more clearly your habits and patterns that can lead to more stress, so you can begin to make different choices
  • Mindfulness and compassion can radically change your experience of stress
  • The simple pleasures of life can bring you joy, even in the midst of suffering
  • Compassion towards yourself and others can help reduce isolation and support deeper connection to the common human experience of suffering
  • Mindfulness and compassion can help you in choosing to respond, rather than react
