TESTIMONIALS

Thanks for creating an environment where each of us could explore in a way which suited us individually.  I have come away with an enhanced awareness of and respect for my body and what it is telling me. I feel that I have moved on in my yoga journey in that I am now able to better incorporate my physical body into my mind/body/spirit practice.  I’ve realised that until now, I haven’t given it enough attention.  Thank you!   I really enjoyed learning TRE too. Having a technique which will enable healing of the many injuries I’ve sustained is a true gift. I loved the yoga nidra, your spontaneous chanting and the quotes and poems you shared. Finally, thank you for being uniquely you.
