Adult and Kids Mindfulness

Due to the current Corona Virus situation face to face training isn’t currently available. There are however some online options to learn how to teach your child mindfulness. Please check out the  Training Course Tab above for more info. Also check out my free meditations for both adults and children on the Insight Timer app. Both the app and the meditations are absolutely free. I will be adding to these over the coming weeks so why not give them a try and please come back and check the site for the next available course dates.

Welcome to the Mindfulives website. I am Chris Maxwell and I trained as a Registered General Nurse, Sick Children’s Nurse and Health Visitor before changing career 20 years ago to become a Primary Teacher. Over the last 5 years I have become increasingly interested in Mindfulness – initially for myself, but having seen the benefits I trained to become an adult mindfulness teacher and a children’s mindfulness practitioner and yoga teacher with both Connected Kids and Chrysalis Kids.

I am now able to offer adult mindfulness techniques, taster sessions, corporate mindfulness classes, kids yoga parties and kids mindfulness classes.

To find out what classes are available visit our training courses page or choose one of these options to set you on your own path to mindfulness:


  • I went to MindfuLives mindfulness taster session last night and it was just exactly what I needed after a stressful week. Chris explained mindfulness beautifully and demonstrated exactly how powerful our minds can be. By the end of the session I could physically feel the stress lifting out of my body. We all need more of this mindfulness in our lives. Thank you Chris

  • “This was my first time doing mindfulness, Chris explained well the theory behind it. I totally relaxed during the session, concentrated and was transported – my headache disappeared and so did any worries, felt peaceful afterwards. Will attend further sessions that Chris is going to hold.”
