Your Taster Session Leader

This session will be led by Breathworks teacher Laura Tivendale.

Laura has lived with chronic illness and disability 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. She was introduced to mindfulness whilst in hospital, which sparked a curiosity and eagerness to learn more. That led her to participate in a Mindfulness for Health online course, and to later became a Breathworks accredited teacher, drawing upon her continued personal practice and previous experience in education.

Laura is delighted to be part of the Breathworks Associate Online Teaching Team. She has first-hand experience of the isolation, difficulties and layers of stress 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
