“Meditation is easier than you might think! Monica is an exceptional guide and offered a variety of techniques and approaches to learn how to calm your mind. She has broken down the misconceptions that I had about the practice and shared a lot of wisdom. I really enjoy meditation now, and am still amazed at how much of a positive impact it has had on daily life and stress. Beyond the peace of the actual practice, I feel as though I have a secret store of calm that I have with me for all of life’s bumps.” – Ruth
“For anyone considering their first tentative steps into meditation, I can highly recommend Monica at Cultivate Calm Yoga. She is both informative and supportive as she guides you through the initial stages of learning the practice of meditation. As a Corporate professional, I had a fair amount of scepticism regarding the tangible benefits of meditation. However, I am pleased to say that it has opened up a whole new area of spiritual awareness and brought the added benefits of better sleep, greater awareness and general well being. Thank you, Monica, for demystifying the unknown and bringing clarity to my life.” – Kayleene
“Monica teaches meditation practice with a clear explanation of the science and philosophy of meditation which really helped me understand what we were doing and why. Monica breaks down the components of meditation practice into easy to build-on steps. I have also felt like Monica really tries to understand my questions, my reactions and challenges to encourage and support me individually while also building a sense of common and shared learning with the whole group. I have been on a number of meditation retreats and mindfulness training courses. I can absolutely say that learning with Monica is the best experience I have had!” – Steph
