This course is practical, non-religious and suitable for absolute beginners or those that have tried a meditation/mindfulness practice in the past.

"We now have evidence that engaging in pure mental training can induce changes not just in the function of the brain, but in the brain's structure itself,"

Richard Davidson, a neuroscientist at the University of Wisconsin-Madison

"Our results suggest that long-term meditators have white-matter fibers that are either more numerous, more dense or more insulated throughout the brain," Luders said. "We also found that the normal age-related decline of white-matter tissue is considerably reduced in active meditation practitioners."

Eileen Luders, a visiting assistant professor at the UCLA Laboratory of Neuro Imaging

Meditation & Mindfulness research shows that this practice can:

  • Reduce stress, anxiety & overwhelm

  • Enhance learning & memory

  • Increase focus productivity 

  • Help you sleep better

  • Improve immunity

  • Gift you with greater coping skills

  • Reduce workplace conflicts

  • Improve communication & relationships

  • Enhance emotional intelligence

and more...

Mindfulness is a mental state achieved by focusing one's awareness on the present moment, while calmly acknowledging and accepting one's feelings, thoughts, and bodily sensations, used as a therapeutic technique.

Google, Apple, Nike and Harvard now run mindfulness programmes and sessions for staff during work hours.

What others have said about Mindfulness Sessions with this trainer.

"I first met Yvonne when she was taking an introductory Mindfulness course. I found her easygoing and approachable, so jumped at the chance to continue working with Yvonne in her 'Monday Mindfulness' programme. 

Monday Mindfulness ended up being with a bunch of other busy working women. Yvonne's down to earth attitude and sense of humour made it a safe place to relax and share quite personal stories. I found I would really look forward to Monday evenings! 

I would highly recommend Mindfulness with Yvonne as a coach. She is relaxed, warm, friendly, and has a very genuine interest in helping people attain their best. Thanks!" 

Ellen.D, Wellington, NZ

"Yvonne makes mindfulness relevant to everyday life. When I started the introduction to mindfulness course I wasn't really sure what to expect but I immediately found Yvonne so easy to understand and relate to, and she has a wicked sense of humour!  

She explained mindfulness in a way that really made sense to me. I found myself nodding lots, laughing out loud and leaving the weekly class feeling much more relaxed and present. I had been through a bit of health related trauma and wanted to calm all the anxiety and negative thoughts in my head so I could be present and think more clearly. 

Mindfulness has definitely started to that for me and now I feel Yvonne has sparked an interest that I want to keep learning more about."

Krystle, Wellington

"I was intrigued to try meditation, having had trouble sleeping for some time. I realised I needed to chill out a bit, and Yvonne's weekly meditation class was an opportunity to relax, take time out for myself, and reflect on the pressures of everyday life. Yvonne has a lovely calm aura about her. She provides fantastic, thoughtful advice on different methods to improve your lifestyle and ‘deal’ with the thoughts that are distracting you. 

Something I've taken away from the course is the ability to concentrate on myself 'in the moment', to disguise any underlying worries or thoughts in my head. I even passed this advice onto family members – when taking my stressed out father for a bushwalk we concentrated on observing the environment around us to take his mind off worries. By immersing in the moment he even noticed a cliff behind the bush line that he’d never seen in the 20 years he’d been a regular on that track!

Yvonne has taught me that self love and being kind to yourself is the key to happiness – and I would happily recommend to anyone some of her clever techniques to help with this!"
