Student Feedback

The combination of yin, mindfulness and restorative – so nice to have a course looking at stillness holistically.

Really great training session and loved the group I trained with. Really lovely community and a very safe space held for everyone to learn and grow.

I thought the group work exercises were really great and such a nice way to get to know others on the course. It also kept my mind sharper in what was otherwise either quite passive learning or very relaxing asana! I thought Erika was a great teacher and look forward to attending her classes.

It was great to study such interesting and slow paced practices for the week and it felt lovely to get studying again in such a supported space
