This masterclass is an exploration of ways of teaching the Breathworks approach to mindfulness on a one-to-one basis. While most of us mindfulness trainers have had thorough training on how to teach mindfulness to groups, teaching mindfulness to individuals requires a range of different approaches. These include greater flexibility, finely tuned listening and enquiry, and the ability to adapt the material of the 8 week courses to be relevant and meaningful to an individual’s particular circumstances.

What participants will gain:

  • Points to consider before accepting someone as a mindfulness client.

  • What are the types of people who may be especially interested in one-to-one mindfulness, and/or would especially benefit from it?

  • A consideration of the differences between teaching mindfulness to a group and to an individual.

  • A consideration of tailoring the content to particular individuals – exploring the balance between following the course schedule and adapting the content and time-scales to be of benefit for particular individuals.

  • An exploration of the differences and overlaps between one-to-one mindfulness and therapy.

  • What aspects of mindfulness and compassion practice are especially relevant to/useful for the trainer while undertaking this work?

  • The participants will be given a number of case studies through which to explore some of the elements above.

The masterclass is suitable for Breathworks teachers, as well as other mindfulness, yoga or movement teachers.
