Meditation to Calm the Mind

Enjoy this Buddhist inspired meditation using the mantra Om Ah Hum for inner peace and calm.

The mantra is chanted silently with each sound representing a different part of the breath. The sound Om is chanted in the inhale and held at the heart centre to cleanse our physical body. Ah is then for the speech and chanted between the inhale and exhale the awareness of this sound is held at the throat for clarity in our speech, and finally the Hum sound is for the mind inspiring a sense of peace and chanted silently on the exhale.

Listen below for further guidance and this blissful mantra that purifies our body, speech and mind

About JT Fitness

Joe has always been passionate about health and fitness and has over 20 years experience of weight training and general conditioning, he has played a wide variety of sports and completed several half and full marathons, including the New York Marathon twice!

After 12 years as a police officer Joe is now embarking on a career change to follow his passion of helping others reach their fitness goals.

‘I always thought I had all the knowledge I needed about training and nutrition, but once I began studying I realised just how little I actually knew!! I have since made massive changes to my nutrition, training and general lifestyle, which has led to me feeling fitter in my late 30’s (I know it’s hard to believe I am that old!) than I was in my early 20’s. There is so much to learn and I now want to pass on my knowledge to help people reach their potential.’

Joe believes everyone has their individual limitations but there are endless ways we can all improve ourselves physically, mentally and emotionally. Most of us lead busy and stressful lives, with exercise and good nutrition often taking a back seat. With an aim to help push health up the list of priorities – ‘the key is to hammer away at the excuses and form the motivation to develop as many good habits as possible. Too many people spend most of the year ignoring their health then suddenly embark on a crash diet two weeks before a big event or holiday. The key to improving health is slow, steady progress with a long term commitment. Remember health is for life not just for holidays!’

Sports Relief Yogathon Wins Award

Manchester Sporting Legends
A few weeks ago, I was extremely fortunate to be invited to attend the first ever ‘We Love MCR Sporting Legends Awards’ event.

The evening was sponsored by Sports Relief, in order to raise money for local charities and determine who the biggest sporting legends from Manchester are, as voted for by the public.

As part of the event though, local fundraisers were also recognised for the extra work they had put into raising money for Sport Relief last year. I was lucky enough to be one of those people!

On the night, I received an award for the Most Inventive Fundraising Event, as I organised the Manchester Yogathon, challenging myself and others to see how many sun salutations they could complete in one go – 25, 50 or 100! It was a huge success, and we did 100 within an hour – a world record!

Alex Ferguson won on the night, along with Dame Sarah Storey and Bryan Robson. It was such a great experience to see all these sporting legends side by side, and raise money for such a worthwhile cause.

We completed another yogathon this year at David Lloyds Manchester again for Sport Relief raising over £500. If you’d like to make a donation, please visit
