This course will be led by experienced Breathworks teacher Stanter Kandola.

Diagnosed with severe Rheumatoid arthritis in her teens, Stanter Kandola – founder of ‘Open Mind’ – was told that she would end up in a wheelchair.  Instead, she embarked upon a journey of self-discovery and is now a freelance mindfulness teacher and coach, delivering mindfulness workshops and courses across Yorkshire.

For the last 29 years, Stanter has embraced a holistic approach to her health and wellbeing, exploring different ideas and techniques from established teachers such as Tara Brach and Ken Wilber, incorporating their teachings into her daily life.  She also discovered the practice of mindfulness.

An experienced and qualified manager, adept at coaching and training delivery, Stanter holds a BA in Social Anthropology (School of African and Oriental Studies University of London, 1997) and is a fully Accredited Breathworks Mindfulness teacher (2014).  In 2017 she trained with the ‘Mindfulness in Schools Project’ qualifying to deliver their ten-week Dot B programme to children. Stanter played a leading part in developing a pain clinic in West Yorkshire, which was nominated for an outstanding performance award at national level.

Stanter has delivered mindfulness sessions – either one-to-one bespoke sessions or group workshops – to local government; NHS staff; fostering services; Neurological Centre, Rape Crisis and Sexual Abuse Survivors services.  She is experienced in working with complex clients suffering from long-term health and mental health conditions, and trauma including Manchester Bombing victims. 

Stanter has defied her original prognosis.  She has walked on hot coals, lived on the River Ganges, meditated in the desert and by the ocean.
