I find my breathing to be more relaxed
“Before the course commenced I had a concern about being part of a group,
something I used find challenging and even daunting. With the Mindfulness class however, such concerns soon dissipated and I found the atmosphere warm and supportive. There was no sense of force in the class or any neediness to achieve evident.
I had expected that in exercises like the Bodyscan a difficulty may arise in trying to follow instruction while at the same time listening to further instruction. To my surprise this presented no obstacle whatever. All went very easily and smoothly in that regard.
Another surprise was during the home exercise when I found that eating with mindfulness meant enjoying more the taste of the food. I think that the most lasting effect of the course for me is the awareness of the breath. I now find my breathing to be more relaxed, more shallow and slower.”
