Hope Bastine is a game changing therapist. Born on the foot of the Pyrenees, raised in India, and consolidated her education in Europe. A barefoot child of India, she understands the compass of cultural diversity, she is a Third Culture Kid. But what has been her constant in the face of an ever-changing environment is her spiritual practice. After having trained as a neuropsychologist, Hope went on to teach psychology. She has now set up a London-based wellbeing company, Fresh Perception, offering spiritual psychotherapy, corporate Mindfulness training, and wellbeing yoga retreats. She is currently researching her thesis on the personal growth of Meditation and Yoga.
She has a well-grounded background in anatomy, physiology, neuroscience, and psychology before launching into her formal yoga training with Jason Crandell and The Yoga People. After having trained with Burmese Monks, she extended her training into the secular mindfulness discipline under the guidance of Dr Collard, author of 'MBCT for Dummies'. As a practicing psychotherapist, Hope is an expert in the psychological benefits in Mindfulness and yoga. She writes for articles appearing in Psychologies Magazine, Tope Santé, My Weekly, and PRweek. Her classes are nourishing dynamic.
