Jemma Burke, Yoga & Mindfulness Teacher, Art of Communicating

Jemma Burke

Mindfulness Teacher

Jemma is a Yoga Teacher, trained at Bija Yoga, Tasmania.  She constantly enriches her skills in Yoga, Reiki and Mindfulness and has travelled the world practising with leading teachers in Indonesia, India and Nepal.  She is also a qualified fine-artist, (BA Fine Art) so she incorporates her creativity into all the work she develops.

Mindfulness Training in business is relatively new to the workplace, however many companies are finding it reduces stress and absenteeism, increases productivity, develops better leaders, and generates more creative workplaces. It also enhances cognitive thinking skills and triggers more imaginative solutions.

Jemma’s skill is in helping your staff to be aware of what is really happening in the moment, how to decrease stress, improve well-being and mental alertness, manage emotions, develop social intelligence, and improve creativity in the workplace.

Her ability to blend mindfulness practices with yoga also contributes to the success of her training outcomes.  As one of our unique mindfulness trainers at Art of Communicating, Jemma’s sessions are always beautiful, balanced, harmonious and very well received by attendees.
