This tour naturally will start with taking a deep breath. When you do this feel how this breath travels through your body, how it expands and relaxes muscles.
Taking a breath is the first thing you are asked to do if you start mindfulness, meditation or yoga.
Modern life consistantly demands responding to requests, juggling a big workload, multi-tasking (no, it does not work!) and rushing through your days.
If you are taking a break, maybe for a few seconds, an hour, a day or longer you should take a deep breath, focus on the activity of breathing to bring yourself into the presence.
No longer worry about the past or catastrophize about the future, just be here and start a journey.
I am a recently qualified yoga teacher but also a life-long adict to nature and truly enjoy travelling.
This example of a mindful tour has been created to provide you with some ideas what this could mean but as it is my business is to create “bespoke tours” I am here to listen to what a mindful tour means to you and propose an itinary which reflects that.

These are just a view suggestions you could play with food and drink and add mindfulness to this. Perhaps visit Kingsbarns or Edenmill Distillery. You may want to investigate Kellie castle‘s history and beautiful gardens or add a leisurely walk at the Teasses estate.
Falkland estate offers amazing gardens and walks and some culinary mindfulness with Pillars of Hercules. There are so many options…..
Indoor yoga can also be arranged.
