The Breathworks Foundation

Making mindfulness accessible

We are a registered charity, with a mission is to make mindfulness accessible to everyone. Being an organisation that gives back has been important to us from the very beginning. Our Founder Vidyamala was living on benefits for many years before she was able to secure funding through a disability grant to start Breathworks. We know that many who benefit the most from our services are least able to afford it, so we are committed to help those in need through bursaries, scholarships, free resources and other funding initiatives.

Support us today.

Removing barriers to mindfulness is one of our missions at Breathworks. At the centre of our work as a charity is our Bursary Programme, which opens the door to people in financial hardship or physical or mental health conditions that restrict their ability to work. Our bursary recipients tell us that Breathworks courses and training have changed their lives. They have been able to share the benefits with their loved ones and communities, allowing the positive reach to grow. 

Through our charitable Foundation, fundraising and support of generous donors, we have helped 213 people to attend courses and train with us as teachers

Here are two heart-warming stories from individuals who shared how their bursary places reshaped their lives and future.

If you are able to donate to help somebody transform their lives with mindfulness, you can do so here. £100 will fund someone's place on an 8-week Mindfulness for Health or Mindfulness for Stress course, and £550 will allow someone to begin their Mindfulness Teacher Training journey.

Two such bursary recipients include Elsa and Peter - click here to read their stories.
