      Amazing opportunity to meditate and visualize with a guide, a plan, my own personal set of cheerleaders, MOTIVATORS, navigators!!! How reassuring it was and how safe it felt to go on such a personal mini-journey and dig up and make sense of some not necessarily safe or comfortable emotions and feelings. Going through the exercises in a small group with that support left me feeling so energized and inspired and yet at the same time I am more calm and more clear, with renewed focus. I feel a stillness and peacefulness and I am more self assured than before. I have a strategy, an action plan, and I feel equipped to take any action I need to take to make things happen so that I get to where I want to be and I create what I want to create with my life. LIFE-CHANGER! I LOVED IT.

      My partner and I had a great time at the Yoga & Bodywork class. I learned some fantastic new partner stretches that I've been incorporating into workouts with my own personal training clients! Andrea is everything a yoga instructor should be - open, positive, caring, tuned in. She watched our communication with our partners throughout the class and gave great modifications if certain stretches or poses weren't working for individual bodies. Great experience. I look forward to taking other classes with Mindful-U!
