As Breathworks’ Head of Programmes, Ginny oversees the Breathworks mindfulness teacher training programme, supporting trainees to develop and deepen their meditation practice and teaching skills. She also looks after the wider programme of Breathworks courses and retreats for the general public, health professionals and established mindfulness teachers, and enjoys developing Breathworks’ e-learning offer. Ginny regularly teach Mindfulness for Health and Mindfulness for Stress courses in Manchester and online.
Ginny had already been meditating for many years when she came across the Breathworks Mindfulness for Health course. She was going through a period of emotional pain and anxiety due to family circumstances, and really needed something to help her cope. She found the Breathworks approach transformational, with its combined emphasis on awareness and compassion - it proved a real turning point for her in her mindfulness practice and life more generally.
Ginny has practised and taught meditation for over twenty years. Her background includes teaching, retreat leading, writing, youth work and educational programme development. She enjoys working in contexts as varied as community centres, workplaces, festivals, schools, homes and faith communities.
