Albin Hamard has been studying, researching and practicing meditation and body-mind awareness techniques for 15 years. He received a Ph.D. with honours for his work on the adaptation of Eastern meditation practices into Western culture, and has been teaching mindfulness and meditation at university level since 2006.
Albin’s approach combines scientifically-backed theory with practical exercises that help learners easily grasp the basics of mindfulness, so they are able to practice it in their daily lives and get results.

Albin has been co-facilitating corporate mind training programs since 2015, helping managers and employees to reduce stress, improve their productivity and have a more positive mindset. He has worked with several companies across multiple sectors, including PwC, Faurecia, Aktan, Gaeris and Premanys.
