What others say…

For me Mita’s yoga class is an essential nourishment for my soul and a complete mind, body and spirit experience. I have been attending Mita’s yoga classes for many years and I always go away learning something different after each class. Each class is a unique experience. Thank you Mita!

 HS, Eastcote

 

Thank you for the lovely meditation training which met all my expectations and more.  Mita I loved your passion and enthusiasm you showed during the meditation course. The course allowed me to experience different forms of meditation which we can all benefit from even those of us who feel we don’t have time.  Thank you for your guidance and in-depth notes.

HB, Stanmore

I am thoroughly enjoying my yoga practice and even on days when I’m sure I don’t want to move or feel unwell, I always come home feeling restored! Thank you.

SN, Sudbury

If anyone has even the remotest interest in meditation and mindfulness and wishes to start a journey of what it may mean to fall awake, then these sessions with Mita will be fascinating, enriching and quite possibly a catalyst for personal positive change and growth.

IGS, Harrow

The course is excellent and has really helped motivate me to meditate. I have become a calmer, happier and healthier person. My mind is clearer and I am able to take all the challenges of my life in my stride. Through meditation I feel as though I can nurture the spiritual side of my self.

PS, Bushey

Thanks again for a wonderful session last night. I am beginning to feel calmer for the first time in a very long time, and – most importantly – to be in control of when and how I can become calm. In addition, I am also beginning to sleep better for the first time in many months, & that in itself is a huge gift. It has, quite literally, changed my life.
