Jonathan Bergius

Mindfulness and Well-being Teacher

I work as the Mindfulness and Wellbeing teacher at Barlavento. I grew up in Gothenburg, Sweden and moved two years ago to the Algarve, where I am currently running ‘The Happy Minds Project’, which aims to bring awareness of mental and emotional well-being through mindfulness and meditation practices. I also teach English, Sociology and Mindfulness at the Aljezur International School.

I am a qualified English and Yoga teacher and am currently studying, practising and teaching Indian philosophy.

There is a growing body of evidence strongly suggesting that if we can educate children early on how to cultivate kindness, compassion and mental well-being, as well as resilience, awareness and emotional literacy, they will not only have higher rates of academic success, but will gain a more complete understanding of who they are as they continue their journey through life. I very much enjoy sharing this with the children of Barlavento.
