How to Practise Mindful Breathing
A simple technique to reduce feelings of anxiety and overwhelm in one minute.
Hi, I'm Michelle, owner and teacher at Meditation Sunshine Coast in Australia. I am passionate about teaching people the benefits of living mindfully and practising meditation to stop feeling overwhelmed, learn to manage stress, live more peacefully and become more calmer, focussed and productive.
I began learning meditation during a period of feeling completely overwhelmed by life. I was separated, running a failing business, selling a house I could no longer afford to keep and looking after two small children. I had hit rock bottom...
I'm not really sure how I began meditating - I just remember that I couldn't sit still for more than five minutes or count up to ten breaths!
I found trying to learn through an app or on my own just wasn't working and through a series of synchronistic events I attended a meditation for kids workshop by the fabulous Janet Etty-Leal (Meditation Capsules). It was there I met the owner and founder of the Australian College of Holistic Studies (Lisa Ford) and went on to complete her Advanced Certificate in Guiding and Teaching Meditation.
I did my Mindfulness Meditation Teacher training at the Gawler Foundation (based on Jon Kabat-Zinn's MBSR program) and also completed Mindfulness for Wellbeing and Peak Performance (Monash University).
I have done Lorraine Murray's Connected Kids program, as well as Yoga Kids Training through Inspired Kids Yoga.
I ran my own studio teaching mindfulness meditation classes, programs and workshops to kids, teens and adults on the Sunshine Coast. Now my focus is on workshops in the workplace and high school programs for teens, as well as online courses to reach more people.
