We offer weekly classes and regular retreats in Mindfulness, Yoga & Music that are engaging, creative and life changing.
Classes combine mindfulness research and brain science with classical Hatha Yoga, Meditation, Music and Relaxation. We know that these mindfulness practices are an effective antidote for the very real problems of stress, anxiety, sleep, chronic illness and nonstop ‘busyness’ that seem to be part of our lives now.
Learning how to slow down, relax and press the 'pause' button for a while, helps us come back to balance, re-assess our priorities and connect with ourselves in a more positive and meaningful way. After all, as Thich That Hanh says so beautifully:
"The miracle is not to walk on water,
the miracle is to walk on the green earth
in the present moment,
in peace and freedom."
Thich Nhat Hanh
When you join a class you become part of the Mountain Mindfulness community. Regular participation creates lasting, positive change. Friendships are made and you will feel the positive support of the group. Our courses provide a clear structure and solid foundation for you to explore your own heart and mind. Be inspired.
We'd love to welcome you.
Mindfulness Based Stillness Meditation (MBSM), as practiced and taught at the Gawler Cancer Foundation, is about understanding the nature of the mind and learning techniques to manage it. As we develop our ability to pay attention, drawing the mind back from the past and the future, we find a deep natural peace here in the present moment.
Yoga provides a pathway that leads from the body, through the breath gently to the mind, culminating in an experience of inner harmony and peace. Postures (asana) ) keep the body strong and flexible, while learning to breath properly (pranayama) is essential for optimum health, and helps to focus and calm the mind.
Coming together to sing, chant and play music is common to every culture, and an important part of our human expression. Singing creates good vibrations within, and connection and community amongst the group. It’s uplifting and everyone can do it! This repertoire of wisdom songs from around the world will open your heart.
What people say
"I've just completed my second Mindfulness course with Melissa and I would highly recommend her courses. I've found that through Mindfulness practise my anxiety levels have vastly improved; I am less self critical and now more able to re-appraise stressful situations and to thus re-assess my responses. It has truly been a very, very positive experience. Thank you so much Melissa."
