Course Overview and Booking

Due to the popularity of this new eight week course, we are putting in place a pathway for those who have completed Level 1 Teaching Skills to train to teach it. The first step is to fully participate in the MBHL course, choose your own healthy lifestyle changes to make and then explore how the practices in the course can support these changes. On this course we explore changes in eating and nutrition, sleep and rest, and activity and exercise. Then you can attend a teacher training weekend, after which you will be fully equipped with PowerPoint presentations and full class plans to deliver the course to your participants.

What participants say:

  • Loved it, as ever. Thank you Ki and Heather for bringing such commitment, well-planned content and enthusiasm to your teaching.
  • I thought it was an excellent course, well delivered and very informative in a relaxed friendly atmosphere.
  • I really enjoyed the course and found it transformative.
  • The course was well set out, took in all aspects of living healthier not just a rigid diet, to recognise that my human failings, lapses will happen and to carry on. I now plan better my meals and shopping. Mindfulness eating, I now sit at the table to eat enjoy the food I have planned for and prepared.
  • It taught me that lapses are fine and just to let go and not fixate on them. Also, unconsciously I have changed my food, eat with my daughter (and more of the time at the table), been more active (even without work I have been more active) and I am overall in a much happier place.
  • It made me develop a much moderating sense of the importance of self compassion. I feel much equipped to continue on this journey of feeling so much better.
  • Lost weight, I’m healthier and a better example to my daughter.
  • Feel more in control of me, the ups the downs, the successes the failures they happen, the changes are helping me lose some weight, that’s the reason I started this journey.
  • Small steps – but steps in the right direction. Better sleep means I feel more refreshed and less likely to try to boost my energy levels / wake up by eating masses of carbs.
  • Stopped smoking, increased healthy foods, reduced chocolate, got more active, practised Mindfulness more (as opposed to random YouTube meditations).
  • Quite a number of changes, particularly dietary changes, more planning, more positive about me, less feelings of failure.
  • Switched to 0% gin, de-caf coffee and increased formal mindfulness practice.
