Participants Feedback for Breathworks Mindfulness Introduction Course

The following feedback is from people who have attended the Breathworks Mindfulness for Stress Reduction Introduction Course:

“Today’s session has really given a thorough introduction to mindfulness, and as a result I would like to attend a course. I can see that it could help me to try and change habits of a lifetime and improve my quality of life. I felt instantly calmer after meeting Chris. He gave a very warm reception and very clear communication.” (Helen)

 

“Exceptional. The amount of knowledge and experience Chris can draw from, including scientific research, breathworks and his personal journey makes mindfulness easier to understand and he’s able to explain it to a wide variety of people… I think so many people could benefit if they just did it. Thank you very much – I hope that I can do a longer course soon.“ (Medi)

 

“The session was informative and enjoyable, and I’ve learnt that there’s more to learn than I thought! Very good. Diolch yn fawr / Thank you very much.” (Geraint)

 

“From this session I’ve learnt how to meditate without feeling annoyed and more stressed about my mind wandering. I’ve also learnt strategies that will helpfully start to ease my anxiety in certain situations, and to focus on the pleasant rather than the unpleasant. Chris was really friendly and put me at ease in a situation I haven’t been in before. The group was really open and inclusive. Thank you for an interesting and informative afternoon.” (Charlotte)

 

“Chris gave great instruction before the session via email. He was very welcoming and I felt at ease from the start. Good introduction to mindfulness meditation. I’ve learnt the importance of being kind to myself, and ‘coming back’ to my breath.” (Rachel)

 

“I’ve learnt about letting go of thoughts and bringing back focus to my breathing. Chris gave good explanations and useful examples. He has a great voice – very mellow. Thank you for today – an opportunity to focus on myself.” (Sheila)

 

“I’ve learnt a lot in a short time from this mindfulness introduction session. The main thing I’ve learnt is to stick with mindfulness! Chris was excellent – clear and concise, understanding and non-judgmental. Thank you.” (Marion)

 

“This introduction to mindfulness session is a good starting point, and I’ve learnt to start switching off from the clutter in my brain and to focus and accept the ‘here and now’. I think this will be very useful.” (Rebecca)

 

“I think this is a good way to experience mindfulness for the first time. Chris put concepts across in a meaningful way. I want to practice more and come on future courses!” (Bernard)

 

“The main things I’ve learnt is that I can control my breathing when my chest is tight and stop a panic attack. I’ve also learnt that I can choose which ‘secondary experience’ to have. Chris’s teaching was very good – Light-hearted moments, not too heavy, very informative and beneficial. I am so glad that I came. Highly recommended.” (Deanne)

 

“Today has reminded me how much I’ve missed the practice over the past 2 years, and the session has stimulated my awareness again. Chris is a good communicator, calming and engaging. I am pleased I came.” (Christine)

 

“I’ve learnt how to be mindful in stressful situations… and give myself a break. The session has given me ‘food for thought’ on how to choose – because you have a choice on how much ‘stress’ you take on. I found it easy to understand and digest – the session was pitched ‘just right’. Chris is calm and easy to engage with. Thank you for giving me the ‘surf’ to hold on to!” (Dawn)

 

“This session has taught me to pay more attention to what my body is doing and my physical responses to a situation, and to slow my mind down and try to clarify my thoughts. It’s enabled me to gain a better perspective and to find time within the day to calm down and gain distance from what is going on. Chris was very clear and gave practical examples which illustrated his point very clearly. He was very open to all questions. Thank you!” (Rhian)

Chris is an excellent mindfulness trainer. His teaching, which is borne out of life experience, has a delightful quality of being clear and accessible whilst being delivered with warmth and humour. He is a gifted communicator with a calm and reassuring presence who has helped many people through his work.

More Information…

Through the Breathworks course I”ve recognised the benefit to my overall mood of stopping and giving my brain a chance to rest, reflect and be calm. Chris communicated the material really well – he organised the sessions to cover all the material while remaining relaxed and open to discussion. I thought Chris paced the course well, and broke it up into clear sections, with a clear theme to each section, with images and role play to leave a memorable impression. Thanks – I”ve really enjoyed the course… It’s made a difference to me.
