"The most game-changing thing I have done in my life. I feel like a new person. I'm calmer, more centered and more present in all situations."

"... an incredibly welcoming atmosphere ... There will definitely be some talking of feelings and maybe some icebreaker type activities that might make you uncomfortable if you're the type to avoid eye contact in public places. But if you have an open mind, I guarantee you'll get something great out to it."

A great place to find some much-needed solace and peace in our fast moving lives. The instructors are very caring and they take personal interest in each person. Highly recommended.

"Greater clarity and focus, practical pointers and the ability to "re-charge on the spot" are just some of the very few life-long lessons that I took away from it."

"The best money I ever spent"

"The course changed the way I look at life!"

"I never felt so relaxed in ages."

Learning the breathing techniques, the knowledge, meeting loving, smiling people... I can not even imagine my life without these! Eternally thankful!
