OUR MISSION

Welcome to Conscious Intentions. 

Our mission is to support health, happiness & wellbeing through the provision and sharing of mind, body, energy practices that support health, personal develop and self-growth.

In our classes, workshops, and one2ones we provide a safe and welcoming space where students can explore practices that optimise and support health and vitality.  We work with individuals that are well but also provide a more therapeutic support for those with existing health conditions.

We work to create harmony and balance within individuals and communities so that people can bring more awareness to what doesn’t support them and more guidance on what can, giving people the tools to develop longer term health and happiness promoting habits and practices. 

Through NLP, coaching, yoga breathing practices and movement, kundalini yoga therapy, individual, communities and families can learn new skills to support and enhance their experience of health and wellness in a new and creative ways.

We allow students to develop at their own pace and aim to introduce and inspire individuals, families and communities both through personal practice, knowledge and professional training so that individuals and families can make their own choices about what works for them and what they wish to take away from the sessions.

Very importantly we work with those new to mind, body practices, and aim to spread and share techniques that have been particularly useful to us in times of challenges and in times of self-development and growth.  Our motto is around working with real people, with real problems looking for extra-ordinary and alternative solutions for health and wellness. 

There is an increase amount of evidence to support through benefits of mind body practices such as breathing practice, meditation, yogic based movements.  We look forward to help spread this message and learning to all those that we teach.

Get in touch now for more information or book here for one of our taster sessions.
