Since the pandemic, our online courses and retreats have proven to be more accessible to a wider audience - so we're going to keep running many of them online! Check out some of the upcoming online events in the Breathworks programme.

At the start of the pandemic, we made a decision to move all of our events online and since then you will have noticed that we have continued with an events schedule primarily delivered online.

Rather than being a detriment, as some of us had feared, this change has in fact enabled us to better meet our vision as an organisation, namely to share mindfulness and compassion as tools for managing pain, illness, and stress as widely as possible.

The online format for our retreats, 8-week courses, and teacher training programme has of course allowed us to protect our community from the spread of COVID, but it has also meant that many of our events have become far more accessible to those with physical and mental health conditions which would have made attending events in person challenging.

We have also been able to welcome many people into our community from farther afield - in many other countries and continents for whom our events would otherwise have remained out of reach. 

Some of you even booked onto our online retreats with groups of friends and created your own retreat setting to practice in - shout out to Tuula in Finland! 

We want to remove as many barriers as possible to accessing these tools, and it seems that our online calendar of events has been a great step towards this.

Needless to say, while we have re-introduced some of our in-person events again, such as two in-person retreats (in June and later in the year) some Mindful Movement weekends in Manchester and London, and our modular Advanced Teacher Training in Manchester, we will be continuing to keep a full calendar of online events.
