Welcome to Breathe Outdoors!
We are a Outdoor Learning provider specialising in personal development, mental and physical health.
Applying outdoor education and mindfulness practises we aim to develop wellbeing using well researched and effective methods.
Please read on to find out about some of the practises we adopt.
Learning in the great outdoors!
Our natural world is both vast and beautiful but it can also provide us with some fantastic learning opportunities. From spending time in the woods learning about resilience and how our minds work to finding out on a mountain bike we can do more than we think, the possibilities begin to seem endless.
Very simply promoting, educating and maintaining physical and mental fitness through the outdoors is our aim.
What is Mindfulness?
Mindfulness is the practise of paying attention to the moment, with awareness, warmth and curiosity. Noticing what’s happening ‘now’ without judgement.
What is Meditation?
Paying attention via our senses on a particular object, feeling or sense. Different types of meditation can include, focusing on our breathing, paying attention while walking or holding a particular feeling in our awareness.
What is Relaxation?
The inevitable product of the above practises. The relaxation response is elicited by stimulating the ‘calm’ branches of the Autonomic Nervous System. In other words, these practises make us feel great, increase clarity in our thinking and have many health and psychological benefits.
