Global Mind Body Groups

Testimonials from Past Participants

Jeya provided workshops for District 5 Department of Human Services which included Child Welfare, Vocational Rehabilitation and Self Sufficiency Program staff.  Jeya’s Mind-Body Skills workshop was very well received and much appreciated by staff. She was able to engage with participants of all skill levels in an approachable manner. Feedback from evaluations showed that staff took away the importance of mindfulness, breathing and self-compassion. They also mentioned that these skills learned will not only help them in their personal and professional lives, but they can pass along some of the techniques to the clients and families they serve.

I have worked with Jeya as her student in the Mind Body series as well as in a professional capacity seeing Jeya work with vulnerable people at the Trauma Healing Project. She is an exceptional teacher and practitioner. Jeya has a wealth of knowledge that she shares with kindness, compassion and patience. She creates a safe, nurturing space and is intuitive and aware of everyone while gently attending to the needs of those she is working with. As a teacher, Jeya is very empowering. I continue to use the skills I learned with Jeya to manage stress, stay grounded and present, and keep my body and mind as healthy as possible. I highly recommend Jeya in all that she does!
