Leeds Mindfulness Cooperative

Accessible mindfulness & compassion training for all

We offer mindfulness activities and training for individuals, community groups, schools and workplaces in Leeds, Bradford, and Yorkshire.

Here’s some of the things we do

Mindfulness courses

We run 8 week courses based on the Breathworks mindfulness program to support people with their health and wellbeing, teaching skills to help manage stress and anxiety as well as pain and long term health conditions.

Working in the community

We work with partners in the community to make our courses available to all, offering a flexible approach and adapting our program and resources to meet the needs of different groups.

Working with organisations

We can provide courses and events for your organisation, including businesses, charities and schools/education. These range from staff wellbeing sessions to Mindfulness in the Workplace training and bespoke programs for different client groups

Working with professionals

Whether you want to learn to lead simple mindfulness activities, develop your own practice, are looking for mindfulness supervision or want a mindfulness teacher to work with your clients, we can match you with one of our team.
