Hannah Perkins has been leading Mindfulness groups, courses and retreats since 2013. She is passionate about helping those on the ‘frontline’ of our communities, particularly healthcare professionals, school teachers and the populations they serve.
She is the Newcastle and Lake Macquarie based trainer of Headrest Mindfulness Programs and is a qualified Mindful Educator through the U.S based, Mindful Schools. She facilitates the 6-week, NESA Accredited in-school program An Introduction to Mindfulness for Teachers; the 8-week Mindfulness Curriculum for Primary and Adolescent Students. She is a member of Openground, Australia’s largest mindfulness training network and offers 8-week secular mindfulness courses, Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction and Mindfulness-Based Cancer Recovery as well as the 4-week, Introduction to Mindfulness.
Through her business, Love This Moment, she also offers weekly Trauma Aware yoga classes, helping those facing the uncertainty of 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 mindfulness 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 online Mindfulness summit, a free online event with 31 of the world’s leading Mindfulness teachers, researchers and experts from around the world.
