About this Course

We will be adapting our popular in-person course to an online platform.

This 8-week Breathworks Mindfulness for Health course is open to all but is particularly helpful for those with short or long-term physical health conditions, chronic pain and related stress. The course has benefitted people with particular conditions such as back pain, diabetes, insomnia, chronic fatigue, migraines, fibromyalgia, multiple sclerosis, menopause, cancer or other long-term illness.

Through guided meditation (provided on the course), group discussion, theory and supported home practice you will be introduced to a number of simple yet powerful mindfulness practices by Breathworks Accredited Teachers. Most people completing the course report a boost in psychological and physical well-being and find new sources of resilience, joy, kindness and calm to cope better with the stresses and strains of daily life.

The course is informed by the accompanying book Mindfulness for Health by Vidyamala Burch and Danny Penman. It might be helpful to have a copy as you do this course to refer to but is not essential.

A limited number of bursaries are available for participants and can be requested here.


The course is open to all. Although mindfulness can be an effective practice it may not be appropriate for everybody e.g. if you are currently suffering from clinical depression. The course cannot substitute for medical advice or professional treatment but in many cases, can be taken alongside them.

Once you have booked on to a course, final confirmation will be subject to completion of a short questionnaire and an informal discussion with your course leader about the course’s suitability for you at this time. The questions will ask you for a bit more information about yourself, any specific condition that brings you to the course and your motivation. This will help you and the course leader explore how best to support your process over the 8-weeks. If it is decided that the course is not suitable at this stage a full refund will be offered.

This course will be carried out on the Zoom platform. It is recommended that you have access to a laptop rather than relying on a phone or tablet, as we feel that using a tablet or phone will not give you the group experience available to laptop users which is essential to give us all a feeling of full group participation.
