Avinash Bansode

Mindfulness Trainer

I am the Director and Lead Trainer at Mindfullybeing which I founded in 2003. With my team we offer bespoke training courses to progressive organisations and individuals. Our programs give people tools to live and work with less stress and greater resilience. We aim to support the well-being, happiness, health and effectiveness of all.

I have over 25 years of training in mindfulness and medicine through leading Universities in both the UK and India.

I am a trained GP, but decided to become a full-time mindfulness trainer. My interest has always been in preventative and integrative medicine. Teaching mindfulness through Mindfullybeing has allowed me to help thousands of people.

We've delivered training to a wide array of organisations, including: EY, Amazon, Skyscanner, The University of Edinburgh, Scottish Government, NHS Lothian, Royal Edinburgh Hospital, Queen Margaret University, Usher Institute, Edinburgh Napier University.

In 2017 my unique, Kind And Mindful Approach to Life (KAMAL) program was given an Impact Award.

Do you have questions? Are you interested in attending a course?

The programme has shown me, for the first time, that there is an approach that can work for me. Both the practical outcome of seeing benefits immediately as well as the reaffirmation that something exists that can help, have been very important.

“ Dr Avinash is a truly wonderful teacher wha has people at the very centre of the work he does. I took part in an 8 week mindfulness course and I can honestly say it changed my life completely - in a a very positive way! I would thoroughly recommend any of his courses.”


The course has been an excellent introduction to Mindfulness. You can read books and listen to recordings, etc. But, I found attending a course with others and swapping feedback to be very helpful and beneficial. I especially enjoyed the group meditations.

I have read about mindfulness, been on retreats and tried to develop these practices but I have never been taught how to do these techniques before. This course has offered a well structured, well taught programme with plenty of handouts to really enable me to learn the mindfulness techniques.
