Meditation Courses

Meditation is a vital aspect of balanced mental and emotional health. However, our mental and emotional health is often overlooked and the hardships we experience are simply labelled as “a part of life.” It’s important that, when faced with situations that are difficult or overwhelming, you have the appropriate strategies and techniques to manage these feelings.

At Studio You, our mindfulness meditation for adults and meditation for children courses are specially designed to relax the mind, equip you with a calm resilience, and ensure no problem is too big for you to solve.

We offer two different meditation courses:

Mindfulness meditation is a therapeutic form of meditation that allows you to develop self knowledge and wisdom. Our services specifically focus on allowing you to relax and recharge, as well as giving you the necessary techniques required to deal with stress. Our trained staff have over a decade of experience in delivering meditation practices that help improve the lives of our clients. We have endless desire to see every woman find the strength to overcome the challenges in their lives.

We all need time to take a break and unwind. Life moves so fast, sometimes it’s hard to keep up, but it is important we allow ourselves time to take stock, reflect and find ways to move forward in a manner that is stress-free. Whilst adults commonly face these situations in the workplace and in their personal lives, children are often faced with the same problems without the experience or tools to deal with it.

Alison has coached me for many years. In this time Alison has coached me through a number of areas of my life, including work, study, health and fitness issues.

Alison has a very calm approach and a non-directive style which allowed me to find my own way forward with changes I wanted to make in my life.Alison’s approach was at all times positive, supportive and constructive, whilst also challenging when necessary. Her coaching style is exceedingly professional and working with Alison has been a pleasure.

I would strongly recommend Alison to anyone that wants to make a genuine change to their lives.


I would like to thank you for introducing me to Mindfulness. Although I am a novice, through your course, I have already discovered some of the benefits of such a practice. Whenever possible, daily meditation has become routine and I am amazed how often I put Mindfulness into practice in my daily life. When I find myself rushed, stressed or worried, I can now calm myself with Mindfulness thoughts and breathing patterns – even my family have made comment that my stress levels have lowered. Recently at the dentist I transferred my thoughts from my mouth to my toes (your voice in my mind) and this definitely alleviated the discomfort of the procedure.

I am very grateful for not only what I have learnt in class but also for your notes for reference and recordings for meditation.


Alison Hutchens is a qualified Mindfulness-Based Stillness Meditation (MBSM) Teacher trained by the Gawler Foundation. Alison is also a registered Meditation teacher with the Meditation Association of Australia.

I found the Zen Warrior course highly beneficial. Alison, our teacher had a calm and reassuring manner and was helpful and supportive.  Her instructions were easy to follow.

Studio You has a strong focus on empowering you as an individual, injecting Mojo into every life, and as a center for mindfulness, helping you become the best you can be so you can relax and take hold of your life. If you, like countless other Australians, want to decrease the stress in your life, call Studio You now and let us help you take care of the rest.

My seven year old son loved learning to become a Zen Warrior, he now teaches me to count my breathes and the glitter jar sits proudly beside his bed and he shakes the jar whenever he has emotions he cant name or is feeling anxious. I’m grateful for the simple techniques and sound tracks that I know will support him as he grows and develops. THANK YOU!
