Mindfulness for Health

This Meditation program was developed by the founder of Breathworks Vidyamala Birch to help her cope with the severe pain and health complications following two major spinal injuries. Backed by huge amounts of research, this training is proven to significantly improve the quality of life of those living with chronic health conditions and pain.  It is open to people with all kinds of health challenges including chronic back pain, arthritis, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, migraines, cancer, MS, Parkinsons and any other non-specific pain or suffering.

Clinical trials have shown that Mindfulness meditation can be as effective as prescription painkillers, and can enhance the body’s natural healing systems. Mindfulness can also reduce the anxiety, depression, irritability, exhaustion, and insomnia that arises from chronic pain and illness.

What you will learn​:

  • How to use Mindfulness and self compassion to manage your pain, illness, anxiety & fatigue in daily life

  • Personalised pacing strategies to help with energy levels and reduce feelings of overwhelm

  • Deep breath and body awareness to help you relax and release tension

  • Supportive mindful movement practices to help you regain trust in your body

  • A range of meditation techniques including body scan, mindful movement, compassionate acceptance and connection meditations.

  • How to build your own personal toolkit of  'mini practices' that you can apply to your daily life to help significantly reduce the suffering caused pain & illness as and when it arises.

I offer this training face to face from my home in Kent (currently on hold) or online via Zoom.
