Mindfulness

We live in a frantic world, with increasing pressure and demands. How great would it be to live life to the full; to be fully present in our experiences, not worrying about the past/future, or to be caught up in negative thoughts, but to be truly experiencing every magic moment?

I am a mindfulness teacher who is strongly committed to my own daily practice and sharing it with others.

Mindfulness is not a magic wand, it does not eliminate life’s pressures, but simple mindfulness practices based around the breath, body, movement, stillness and compassion bring you back to:

being fully present in each moment, as it happens

building emotional resilience

changing your relationship with stress and anxiety, hence improving your wellbeing

becoming more conscious of your choices; intercepting thoughts and creating “aha” moments, where one recognises patterns and habits

responding rather than react to whatever life throws at you

“Mindfulness” is more than a buzzword

Extensive research has proven it can help people to reduce pain, reduce rates of depressive relapse, decrease anxiety and improve levels of emotional wellbeing.

Scientists have attributed the benefits of regular mindfulness practice to four interrelated factors:

attention regulation – sustained attention can develop positive emotions

becoming more attuned to our bodily sensations fosters emotional awareness and control

change in perspective of self – recognition that the self can change, and therefore we have choices

emotional regulation – those who practice mindfulness expose themselves to emotions and feelings; they are encouraged not to react to the emotional experience, whether it be pleasant/unpleasant; simply accepting the emotions and bodily responses
