Mindfulness Stress Reduction Training

8 weeks Mindfulness Group Training (MBSR)


Our extremely busy lives can be full of restlessness, obsessive thoughts, and anxiety or pain, leading to a lot of stress. When we focus all of our energy on these negative parts of life, we lose awareness of the positive. Life doesn’t need to be like this! Mindfulness teaches us to handle stress and health issues in a balanced and effective way. The practice of mindfulness teaches us how to be present, here and now, enabling us to easily let go of obstructing thoughts, emotions and tension. The mindfulness training program at Yoganesa combines elements of Eastern mindfulness techniques with the innovative insights of modern Western psychology.

Mindfulness Training: Who is it for?

What you put into this training, you will get out of it

If you want to improve the quality of your life, this mindfulness training program might be the right choice for you. This is especially true if you want to learn how to deal with life’s obstacles in a new way. With the support of the group, all participants are expected to be motivated: daily practice is an important part of the training and will need to be carried out with commitment if you want to benefit from the training. The results are so worthwhile:

  • learn how to deal with difficult emotions, like tension, anxiety or pain
  • spend less energy on worrying
  • have the capacity to enjoy a busy life
  • find more moments of joy, peace and inner stillness
  • experience each moment with awareness
  • increase your energy levels

When is mindfulness training not advisable?

If you want to solve specific issues and mental barriers, like acute psychic distress, conflict situations or career issues, then you will benefit more from individual therapy or coaching. Individual therapy is also advisable in case of psychosis or addiction. While it can be helpful, mindfulness training is not specifically designed for people suffering from attention deficit disorder. If you have a diagnosis of ADD, please discuss this with the trainer to assess the advisability of the training for you. A mindfulness training program is also, quite often, not the most appropriate solution to a period of crisis, for example when you are in the middle of a divorce, moving house or going through dramatic changes in family or professional life. Then it’s best to postpone. Personal crises may be overwhelming by
times, making it hard to focus on the training; and during tough times it may be hard to commit to daily homework.

Mindfulness training is proven to be effective in reducing the following symptoms:

  • work stress and burnout
  • negative thinking, ruminating
  • sinking into depression
  • chronic pain and the emotional effects of a serious disease
  • symptoms arising from anxiety and fear
  • physical symptoms which are stress- and tension-related, like high blood
  • pressure, psoriasis, fatigue, RSI and insomnia

Mindfulness training improves the skills to:

  • cope with stressful circumstances
  • increase energy levels
  • develop better concentration (due to less worrying)
  • set and maintain personal boundaries (due to increased self-esteem)
  • experience and enjoy the present moment with a deeper level of awareness


Anouk: The homework was important for me. Taking responsibility of my own learning process. I noticed I became more conscious about my own thoughts, sensations in the body and emotions. The training made me realize I want to take care of myself. I would recommend this training to others because I experienced that whoever and where ever you are (in your life),
there will be peace for you in this training. 
I think Katri is a very competent trainer. She was very well prepared and she is taking care by listening and observing. She radiates trust and is very patient. She gives space to the students own learning process. I would like to thank you Katri with my whole heart for letting the sun shine more and more during these
8 weeks.

Stephanie: For me, to start with, the environment of the studio, Katri and feeling safe and relaxed was very important in this training. An important thing I learnt is that mindfulness is not just about relaxation but really about being and become aware of everything in and around you. I do feel I am more open minded, being able to not directly react in situations but being able to step away and look with a wider perspective. This also feels like being more in contact with myself. I would definitely recommend this training. It is a great way and opportunity to learn and experience what mindfulness is about. The training is very divers and covers a lot of different topics. There is an open and friendly atmosphere. Katri is a very friendly and not judgemental person. Her voice is really pleasant as well. I like that she encourages the conversation during the training. Thank you so much for sharing and giving this training. I have really experienced it as very pleasant. I will not

Evalien: For me it is important in this training just to accept the here and now with open curiosity. Thanks the training I recognized awareness and acceptance, identifying patterns in my life that are unnecessary and the acknowledgement that all emotions and thoughts will pass. Like temporary waves in the ocean. Yes, I would recommend this training to others because it is giving you insights which I may not had seen before. This training opens your eyes. Katri is a calm compassionate trainer that really listens to you.
