I’m Bridget and I run Mindful Manchester.  I am a Breathworks accredited mindfulness teacher (www.breathworks-mindfulness.org.uk) who teaches at energyflowfitness in Chorlton and Creative Calm in Prestwich. I love collaborating with Yoga and Pilates teachers to offer classes that take care of the mind and the body. 

I stumbled upon mindfulness when I was suffering from anxiety and depression. I found that it helped in a long-lasting way that other interventions hadn’t. Initially very sceptical, I gradually realised that the more I practiced, the better able to cope with life’s ups and downs I became. Eventually convinced by its gentle wisdom, I decided to train to teach mindfulness. 

When not sitting with my eyes closed (not as much as you’d think) or teaching other people how to sit with their eyes closed, I’m hard at work at my day job as a graphic designer.
