The Mindfulness of Boating
The peace and pace of canal dwelling goes hand-in-hand with mindfulness.
Fiodra includes a tuition and practice space that is ideal for small groups (up to ten). This is something I was keen to build into the design from the outset. As a Mindfulness teacher I wanted somewhere I could offer tuition myself and provide a space where others could come to practice or teach.
Fiodra provides a unique atmosphere. Close to water and nature it is an intimate space. Somewhere you can deepen connections with yourself and the environment.
"Barge Fiodra is marvellous vessel with true hospitality; a calm quiet place in which to learn and practice. (Helen)

"We were sat around the wood burning stove and Bob guided us through the introduction to mindfulness. We were seven participants and only two of us had any mediation experience. Bob was clear and reassuring and took us through a varied range of short mindfulness exercises with feedback in-between. The whole session was engaging and I felt I got something valuable out of it. I think that all participant did. I will definitely continue whenever I can. (Beatrix R)
"I would just like to say that I have found Bob’s classes absolutely excellent. Really fulfilling, energising and thought provoking" (Ben - Cancer Research)
