    Inspiring stories - a teacher

    "I received a bursary to help me complete my Breathworks Teacher Training. I have had long-term health issues since birth and mindfulness has completely transformed my life, including losing seven stone in weight.

    I now teach mindfulness to others including healthcare professionals. I can't express enough gratitude to the Breathworks Foundation and all those who donate".

    Inspiring stories – a participant

    'My pain hasn't disappeared; but I've learned to respond with kindness to the
    mental stress and anxiety that goes with living with physical pain. Breathworks
