I have put together The Beginners Guide to Mindfulness as I would like the practice to be as accessible as possible to everyone. I believe that learning the practice of mindfulness is one of the most valuable gifts you can offer yourself, as the benefits that can follow can transform everything in your life, including mind, body and relationships.
I have been practicing mindfulness for over 20 years, and have been teaching it as a fully qualified yoga teacher for nearly a decade. During this mindfulness course you will benefit from this wealth of experience, learning amongst other things that mindfulness is a practice that anyone can benefit from.
This course will teach you jargon free, effective mindfulness practice that gives you a clear way to understand and learn from any other meditation paths you come across after further reading. This course is a Beginners guide and offers a fantastic introduction to mindfulness, but bear in mind that this is just only just the start of your journey. If anybody suggests, that their course or school tells you everything you need to know, you may want to... well meditate on it. In the yoga world, we like to think that everybody is potentially your teacher, especially your students.
The time investment needed to see benefit from this course varies (and depends on the benefit sought), but many people notice positive changes after practising for only 90 minutes per week for 3-4 weeks. This of course also needs to be maintained long term!
Mindfulness is probably one of most essential life skills you can learn. I hope one day it will form part of school curriculums*, but Udemy is a great place to start, remember its never too late to learn!
Thank you for dropping by, I hope to welcome you to the course soon,
Here's to the start to a new & exciting journey...
*I am honoured and delighted to have played a part in getting meditation (as part of an overall yoga practice) into the primary & secondary education system in Kent region in the UK.
Laura has practiced yoga & meditation for over 15 years and has taught it as a fully qualified professional for nearly a decade. When she is not teaching clients on Skype she is traveling around the world with her family seeing friends, relatives and supporting charities / NGOs.
Whilst she recognises the roots of where Yoga comes from (Pre-Vedic Hinduism), Laura does not feel that yogic practice always has to aim for enlightenment. As a teacher she works with her students supporting each of them on their own personal journey. Be that to recover from an operation, or to become more patient with their partner.
