Those are some testimonials received from former participants.
You have changed my life so dramatically for the better
Well here I am surrounded by the forest and snow again. I have started my own business. I don’t think this message can fully convey the gratitude I have for what you have done for me. There is no doubt that I would not be here today if it wasn’t for you.
The last 9 months since I saw you have been quite amazing. I immediately started thinking about my business plans. It’s been very very hard but I know that the first year in business is the most treacherous. If it all fails then I would still have followed my dreams. I can still vividly remember the illness like I have just woken up from a bad dream. I think it will always be a part of me but I know that in ten years I won’t again look back and say I should have tried to change my life.
What I can offer you is my sincere gratitude and to say that I will be forever in your debt. As a form of thanks I hope you can take pride in the fact that you have changed my life so dramatically for the better. I think you were made to do this kind of work and many people must be glad for it.
Over the past year my life has been turned upside down by a number of issues, including the stresses of work. The feeling of complete relaxation and calmness that I am left in is indeed something else.
I cannot tell you how much that has helped me through this difficult period. Your calming way and understanding makes it so easy for me.
My circulation feels like it should now. The more that I practice, the more subtle I feel, which at my age is lovely to feel coming back.
Thank you for all your help.
As I had been so anxious about conflict with one of my colleagues, I could not stop thinking about what to do, what should have done. Anxiety was overwhelming, so after email communications, I booked 3 day retreat.
Retreat experience with Etsuko was amazing!
She helped me to change my rigid thinking to more flexible one, as well as focusing body sensations which enabled me to find calmness and deep relaxation I never experienced in my life.
Her teaching of Mindful Eating was eye-opening experience, I think it would benefit any one of us. For me, retreat experience with Etsuko was a period of bliss.
First day, I was a very unhappy and anxious person.
After 3 days I felt incredibly calm and relaxed. All anxiety, fear and lack of confidence had evaporated. Her programme works, only 3 days, just unbelievable.
It is well structured and practical, so that I can incorporate into my busy daily life to continue practicing at home. It’s been 5 months, I still practice a morning and evening 15 minute programme which helps me to keep calm and form better decisions.
Your programme works! I am much happier person now, and am grateful that you have changed my life so dramatically for the better.
Anxiety and Depression
I run my own business and have a very hectic and pressured life with lots of deadlines, meetings and targets to hit. Over the last few years I had found that I was getting anxious about things that were out of my control and it was starting to take over my rational thought process and become a real burden, to the point where I was starting to feel unhappy.
It got to a point that I felt I needed to take action to address the issue and found Etsuko by searching online, when I initially spoke to her she assured me that with some minor adjustments the problem could be sorted.
I spent 3 days with Etsuko on a one to one basis, spending time rationalising the issues, but more importantly learning to be aware of the present and not to worry about the future or the past, I learned yoga practices and breathing techniques and how to be more mindful every day.
After the 3 days I felt incredibly calm and relaxed and all anxiety had evaporated.
From home, I continued to do a morning and evening 15 minute programme which reinforces the practices and techniques.
It has now been a month since my visit and other than a couple of minor moments of stress I am pleased to say I remain anxiety free and I am calmer and happier than I have been in a long time.
Thank you Etsuko, what you do works and I hope you continue to help more and more people who suffer from anxiety and depression.
At the time of his initial consultation, GAD7 score was the highest of 21 which reduced to ZERO on the 3rd day. High BAI score reduced to 1 on the 3rd day. (mildly tingling is due to the life energy flow activation after practicing Prāna Yoga, quite normal).
In a short time, the improvement in OCD symptoms and anxiety was clear to see. I am much happier individual. I would happily recommend Etsuko’s services to anyone.
The feeling of complete relaxation and calmness that I left is indeed something else and I cannot tell you how much that has helped me through this difficult period. Your calming way and understanding makes it so easy for me. Thank you for all your help.
This has been a truly enlightening experience for me. I will take away with me the key principles that will be in my heart for many years.
“Infinite possibilities”, flexible way of thinking, applying a gentle compassionate logic. Thank you. This method will be in me, I am so grateful.
While practicing sitting meditation, I used to think about past incidents, as if I live that particular moment again and again. It was so hard, and I became restless….my depression worsened.
With your programme, however, what I experienced was deep relaxation. This feels so wonderful. For me, 30 minutes of My Time is “the place of safety” where I can rest peacefully away from all the storms.
Yoga & Meditation Class
Attending Etsuko’s yoga and meditation class is like entering an oasis of calm in a mad and busy world. Etsuko has a calming presence and a caring teaching manner.
If I can’t attend a class I really miss it, and always look forward to my weekly relaxation and meditation. This is not an exercise class but a chance to listen to your body and focus on the internal rather than the external.
Not only does it keep your body flexible, but also enables you to cope better with the daily challenges and stress we all face now.
I always feel much calmer after a session with Etsuko. I would definitely recommend her class to all.
