Mind and Body Wellness Programme

A unique programme comprising of weekly Yoga & Mindfulness sessions alongside bimonthly Breath to Health workshops


About This Programme


Welcome to Mind & Body Wellness (MBW), the comprehensive six-week community-led service evaluation project under NHS that empowers individuals with effective tools to improve their mental and physical health through the power of Yoga and Mindfulness. Our programme includes:

  • Gentle yoga and laughter yoga, both of which help to release tension and promote relaxation.
  • Various simple and yet powerful advanced Yoga breathing exercises.
  • In the Breath to Health Workshop, the main breathing exercise you will learn is “Sudarshan Kriya Yoga” (SKY). This is a powerful rhythmic breathing technique derived from yoga which has numerous proven benefits in high stress environments.
  • Techniques to strengthen the relationship between mind and body.
  • Guided meditations and relaxation.
  • Various other interactive processes.

Once you have learnt the breathing and other techniques, they are easy for you to practise at home daily and you can join for weekly follow-up sessions as well.

Background to Programme


The Mind and Body Wellness programme has been developed off the back of a highly successful voluntary service evaluation project called “Yoga and Mindfulness Therapy”. This took place at a community centre in the Blackwood area from April to November 2022.

A total of 48 people participated and the results were impressive!

Participants reported significant improvements in their mental health, including a reduction in anxiety and depression. They felt calmer, happier, more energetic, supported and positive in their lives. A few even reduced their dependency on anti-depressants and others reported physical benefits, including improvements in arthralgia, fibromyalgia and acid reflux.
