Breathworks was born out of the Vidyamala's personal journey. She first injured her spine in 1977 when she was just 17 years old and she learned to meditate in 1985. In 2001 she started teaching meditation and mindfulness to people living with pain, illness and stress out of a desire to share what she had learned with others. Vidyamala is now an experienced meditation teacher who works internationally. She offers wise and practical guidance in how to bring mindfulness and kindness to experience - including difficulties such as pain and illness - so one can 'live well' with a free and relaxed mind, whatever the circumstances.

Today, Vidyamala is an internationally known author. Living Well with Pain and Illness (2008) is published in twelve different languages. Mindfulness for Health (2013) is co-authored with Danny Penman (Piatkus Press). This won 'Best Popular Medical' book at the BMA awards 2014. She has also produced led meditation CDs and booklets available through Breathworks.

Vidyamala is an ordained member of the Triratna Buddhist Order and regularly leads Buddhist retreats internationally.
