Breathworks programmes are a development of John Kabat-Zinn’s Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) adapted to suit the needs of those with chronic pain, illness or stress and founded on practice-based research.
Breathworks approach has been incorporating all the scientific findings of the last 20 years of studies about the Brain, the Mind and their relationship.
The Breathworks Foundation, a UK registered charity wing, was formed in 2009. This has aims to promote research and to provide bursaries for people who cannot afford to attend courses.
Research on the clinical benefits of mindfulness revealed that across all scales measured (mood, pain experience, quality of life, catastrophising, and confidence in activity despite pain), the Breathworks approach showed statistically and clinically significant improvement.
There are 2 main streams of courses: Breathworks for Stress and Breathworks for Health.
From humble beginnings to international recognition, Breathworks' mission is to bring mindfulness and compassion as a tool for reducing suffering to people worldwide; regardless of their situation.
