What Is Mindfulness?


Mindfulness gives us effective ways to promote our wellbeing, as we learn strategies which boost our emotional health. “It’s like going to the gym for our minds“, we have to practice to get results and this gives us the power to change and maintain our wellbeing. It’s an approach which boosts our immune system, improves our sleep, enhances our creativity, enabling us to understand ourselves better and change from the inside out.


Stress Relief

Mindfulness helps us to manage the day-to-day stress of today’s world and associated feelings of being overwhelmed, which can come through work related stress or pressures from caring or studying. Research has demonstrated the positive impact mindfulness has on counteracting our external stresses as we learn coping strategies which help us to respond wisely instead of reacting, and this helps us to gain a better life balance.


We believe everyone has an innate quality for mindfulness and the capacity to live well regardless of their circumstances. Mindfulness builds up our internal resilience and improves our external capacity to respond effectively in challenging and uncertain situations. Our courses support individuals to incorporate it meaningfully in their everyday lives, amidst work, study, illness and family commitments.

Scientifically Backed Ways to De-Stress

When we’re stressed, hormones like cortisol flood our systems, producing the “fight or flight response” in which our heart rate goes up, we breathe more heavily (requiring more oxygen) and our blood vessels constrict.
