Guest Instructor

Dilya Mavlanova

Dilya discovered Mindfulness and Coaching after a period of depression, severe anxiety and panic attacks. An unhealthy lifestyle, stress and loneliness led her to look for sustainable ways to live a happier and healthier life. Regular Mindfulness practice empowered Dilya to change her way of being and her view of the world and ignited a passion within her to share this new knowledge with others to help them understand the power of Mindfulness.

Di is trained to teach Mindfulness-based and Compassion-based practices, Loving-Kindness meditation, and various visualisation techniques for greater wellbeing and personal growth. She has undertaken a number of Mindfulness courses, including MindfulnessUK Teacher Training, Advanced Coaching Course, and Mindfulness for Leaders training.

Dilya’s teaching is secular and accessible, yet enriched with the philosophies of Zen Practice, Pranayama knowledge, and Buddhist Dharma teachings.
