WHAT IS SATIS?

My company teaches people how to use yoga and mindfulness to relieve stress in the mind and body. As part of extensive academic research undertaken by my company it has been shown that the combination of mindfulness and yoga can have a transformative effect for a person’s health.

I want to change people’s lives through the combination of mindfulness and yoga.

My name is John, and I’m in the business of changing lives.

Mindfulness Movement is a mindfulness therapy that fills the gaps that western mindfulness therapy leaves open. In the west, we have psychological treatments for the mind and physical treatments for the body. Originally, mindfulness incorporated treatment of the mind (through psychology and focussing meditation), stresses to the body (yoga and/or chanting) and the spirit by teaching an understanding of the nature of reality (awareness). Mindfulness Movement teaches an authentic version of mindfulness that brings all these elements together to give you the complete pathway to happiness.

We create our own reality. Let’s create a better one together.

A little bit about me

Mindfulness Movement

I worked for over ten years as a lawyer before re-training as a Holistic Personal Trainer and Mindfulness Practitioner.

I did the typical office job; chasing the money until I had lost all sense of who I was and where I was going.

It was only when I was faced with a life-threatening illness did I realise that I needed to make the most of each day and not to spend all my time stuck in an office. I sold my shares in my company and left the business within weeks of making the decision.

the next three years were spent undertaking extensive training whereby I obtained an Msc and have gone on to research the effects of Mindfulness and Yoga as part of a PHD program. The outcomes of the PHD will change the usage of Mindfulness in the workplace forever.

Over this three year journey, I came to understand that there are four pillars in life that are needed to support and happy, healthy body and mind – balance of the mind, body, emotion and spirit.

Once I understood this, I knew that I must create a service that allowed busy people in everyday life
to access the benefits of mind and body that I found.

THUS THE MINDFULNESS MOVEMENT WAS FOUNDED.

SERVICES

I work with three distinct products that each give different benefits. The yoga classes are a gentle introduction to mindfulness movement therapy. The one-to-one sessions are perfect for people who have psychological issues (such as anxiety or depression) and who are ready for a deep form of therapy that uses cognitive behavioural techniques, counselling, mindfulness and focusing therapy to achieve life-changing results. Then there is the ultimate service – Mindfulness Movement Therapy – that incorporates all these elements together.

Mindfulness Movement Therapy

Introduction to Mindfulness, The 8 Week Mindfulness Course, Hatha Yoga Course, Mat Based Pilates Course. These courses are ran every Thursday at 6.30pm to 7.30pm at Lifeways Charity in Stratford Upon Avon. Contact me to confirm which courses are running.

Mindfulness Yoga Classes

This is a therapeutic class blending mindfulness and yoga to bring peace and relaxation to the mind, body and spirit. Join us for this unique experience every Friday night 6.30pm at the Rosebird Centre in Stratford Upon Avon.

One to One Mindfulness Therapy

This service is perfect for those people who have been to traditional therapists (counsellors, cognitive behavioural therapy) and have not found the answers they are looking for. I use a mixture of meditation, focussing and acceptance therapy to enable the person to find the answers themselves by helping them to understand who they are and what it is they are really feeling.
