Mindfulness and Meditation

Mindfulness and Meditation

Meditation and mindfulness practice has been proven to promote a general well being particularly during periods of stress.

There are many types of meditation that can be practiced, some of which can be found at The Tree Room.

Before joining any meditation group it is recommended that you research the various types of meditation to help in deciding which one is right for you.

Please don't hesitate to contact any of our meditation teachers listed at The Tree Room or for a more general chat please contact the Manager at The Tree Room, Joanne Murr on 07931 118959 or e-mail


Mindfulness is a disciplined practice that teaches us to live in the present, to savour moments and experiences and to learn how to choose wise responses to the challenges of life. It is a specific form of meditation and way of being that enables us to access a peaceful, more stress resilient demeanour and deeper insight into our own nature, including patterns of thinking and behaviour.  Scientific research has shown how regular mindfulness meditation practice can literally change the structure of the brain to make us less stress reactive, improve concentration and decision making and increase feelings of compassion, contentment and inter-connectedness.

Jonathan Hallam

Mindfulness Meditation

Jonathan teaches mindfulness meditation and yoga classes at the Tree Room. Both classes are centred around exploring one's own wisdom through developing awareness and self-compassion. Mindfulness meditation is a wonderful way to practise present moment awareness; to gently focus and guide awareness back over and over, as it drifts in a busy mind to the past or to the future. In this way mindfulness promotes a sense of peacefulness and ease without the need to try to be peaceful. Jonathan's yoga classes are based on classical yoga with other influences including self-shiatsu, womb yoga and Buteyko breathing. Each individual is encouraged to listen to their own needs and practise with compassion; to find the point between effort and effortlessness; and to enjoy the progress which is available right now.  

Both classes are available for complete beginners and experienced yogis alike. Jonathan is passionate about sharing the message that yoga is for any body; and that with practise flexibility and strength naturally increases over time.
