Course Teacher: Laura Tivendale

Laura has lived with chronic illness since her early teens and when she found herself desperately unwell at the age of 
thirty, she realised how habitual and automatic her life had become. A long journey led her to participate in a Mindfulness for Health online course, and she later became a Breathworks accredited teacher.  She is now delighted to be part of the Breathworks Associate Online Teaching Team, as well as volunteering for The Breathworks Foundation, writing and editing publicity material, blogs and case studies. Laura has first-hand experience of the isolation caused by chronic illness and disability, and is passionate about making mindfulness available to those most in need and who find it hardest to access.
