Mindful Mountains was established in 2010 initially as a platform for sharing John’s research in mindfulness and mindful learning. He has developed these approaches and now provides ski coaching which use mindfulness as a means to improving performance, for all ability levels, on the piste and off piste.
In 2018 he moved to Champoluc near Aosta, in the northwest Italian Alps. This mountain region, known as the Monterosa, has some of the best back country off piste terrain in the Alps, the scenery is awesome and the village of Champoluc beautiful.
Mindful Mountains now provides Holiday weeks for hiking, biking and yoga and Retreats featuring meditation, mindfulness, singing, Tai Chi, Chi-gong, Spiritual and Shamanic practices.
