Hannah Perkins

I won't offer advice or presume to know what you need in order to practice, grow or heal. Instead, with safe and supportive guidance, I can enable you to seek your own answers from within.


Present moment awareness is something we already know and is already in us, available in each and every moment, but we have forgotten to access it. 

Through daily practice I am learning to love what is. As someone who has lived with life threatening illness and who is still learning to navigate life with pain and anxiety, I know what it is like to be faced with an uncertain future and potentially not the one you had imagined for yourself. 

I also know how heartbreaking it is to realise that, when 'lost' in our regrets, worries and plans, we are missing out on much of the beauty of life that is happening right now.

It is a privilege and a joy to share with you my learning and failures as a human being who, just like you, am trying to find my way back home. To peace. To stillness. To presence.

Hannah has been leading groups, courses, retreats and movement classes since 2013. She is passionate about helping those who have suffered trauma by being on the 'frontline' of our communities, particularly healthcare professionals, school teachers
and the populations they serve.

She is a qualified Mindful Educator through the U.S based, Mindful Schools. ​She facilitates the 6-week, NESA accredited in-school program, Mindfulness for Teachers as well as tailored Mindfulness curriculum for primary and adolescent students.

She teaches weekly Trauma Aware yoga classes and sees a wide range of students in her private Yoga Therapy practice, offering her wisdom on dealing with anxiety/depression, life-threatening illness and chronic pain. Hannah brings warmth, practicality and her own life experiences to her teaching and facilitating.

 

Hannah first discovered Mindfulness as an antidote to the stress of working with various environmental campaigns, later coming back to the incredible healing potential of the body-heart-mind connection when she received a cancer diagnosis at age 29. She has since used Yoga and Meditation to turn towards difficult bodily sensations and distressing thoughts, her daily practice supporting her to observe the changeable quality of body and mind and not get too attached to any of it. In 2015, Hannah was selected to be part of the world’s largest mindfulness summit, a free online event with 31 of the world’s leading Mindfulness teachers, researchers and experts
from around the globe.

Love This Moment
DSC08652.jpg

When we only pay attention to our mind, we cannot hear the subtle whispering of our "being-ness", which is really the truth of who we are.

 

This, conscious awareness, is the part of us that never changes and when we dive into the core of this feeling, it's always love.

 

When I was healing from cancer, I embraced living one moment to the next, treating the arising of each breath with the respect and gratitude it deserved. Now I am recovered, it takes daily practice to remind myself to be present and loving toward what is, exactly how it is.

 

My wish for you is to embrace this moment as if it were your last, to find the strength and resilience to return to yourself, over and over, no matter how many times you forget, whatever happens to you and regardless of how painful life can sometimes be.

"It was really helpful that Hannah shared some of her story with us, as I felt I could relate and didn't feel so alone. It felt like we were
all in it together"
