RESONANCE – STUDENT TESTIMONIALS

YN_W_Pg main image_750px_Resonance_200dpi

There’s something precious that happens when Yoga is shared and experienced from a place of open awareness. It’s a resonance that is very real, yet often hard to explain!

In gratitude to the students and generous souls who have shared some of their own journey and Yoga Nature experiences…

Mardi is generous in sharing her knowledge, love and deep embodiment of the practice of yoga and possesses all the qualities you are looking for in a yoga teacher. Each week I feel renewed after reconnecting with my practice under her skilful instruction and guidance. My Yoga Nature class has become an unmissable part of my week and I am so pleased to have found such an amazing teacher. ~ RACHEL MAHER

Yoga Nature_Yantra 2After a yoga hiatus of a couple of years I recently discovered Mardi’s wonderful Monday morning classes. Set in beautiful surroundings, her teaching strikes just the right balance between nurturing gentleness and cultivating energy. While I loved (love!) the group classes what I really wanted was to be able to practice regularly at home—something I’ve never been quite able to pull off. After talking about it with Mardi I booked in for a private lesson so she could create a sequence specially tailored for me. Mardi listened to what I wanted, and crafted a sequence that not only suits me physically and helps me meet my practice goals, but gives me joy each time I step on the mat!

Mardi is living the life she teaches—she has a warm, open heart, a soulful energy and a commitment to the sacred life of yoga. I am thrilled to now be practicing regularly at home, and feel very grateful to Mardi for her support, encouragement and enthusiasm. ~ EMMA CAIN ~ Gestalt Therapist, Emma Cain Therapy

Yoga Nature_Yantra 2From the beginning of my yoga/meditation journey with Mardi I have experienced both physical and spiritual awakening. Mardi’s dedication, gentle nature, warmth and knowledge of this practice brings awareness of what’s truly important in my life.

After each session I am left with a clear mind, renewed body and my spirits uplifted and at peace. My connection with everyday life here and now is achieved with ease and openness. Thank you for your guidance in this practice Mardi. I feel a special connection and blessed to have you in my life as my teacher and friend. Be well. Namaste. ~ GAIL HOULIHAN
Yoga Nature_Yantra 2My yoga practice with Mardi is always enjoyable, a little challenging and refreshing. Our sessions are personalised; with a focus on both consolidation of fundamentals and exploration of new yoga practice. Since starting yoga with Mardi about a year ago, it has become something I turn to for stress relief, relaxation and to aid my general emotional and physical wellbeing. Mardi is extremely competent and supportive as a teacher. I have been so blessed to have Mardi as my teacher and to benefit from her kindness and calm peaceful nature. ~ KAREN BREED

Some thoughts from the ‘SEEDS OF YOGA’ ~ 6 WEEK BEGINNERS COURSE 

At the very first “Seeds of Yoga” class I knew that I’d found the instructor and class that I’d been looking for to begin my journey in yoga again.  Mardi’s warm and encouraging nature made me feel relaxed and open to exploration right from the start.  The classes were well paced for beginners and I loved that along with the postures, that we explored gently, we also gained a greater insight into the practice and principles of yoga.  Mindfulness was encouraged from the beginning and from this I enjoyed the sharing of insights that we gained along the way.  Mardi delivered the class with such joy and obvious passion.  It was truly a highlight of my week and I floated out of each class, my body feeling great and my mind peaceful.  Upon completion of the course I feel excited and ready to embrace all that yoga offers in more of Mardi’s classes. ~ TEENA GALLAGHER

Yoga Nature_Yantra 2I recently joined Mardi’s Beginners Yoga Course with an open mind and no expectations. Having never before done Yoga I doubted my own ability to be able to ‘do or experience it meaningfully’.
What a revelation it turned out to be and how supremely fortunate that I found such a beautiful spirit in Mardi, who with her gentle and caring nature was able to inspire a practice in me I didn’t know I was capable of. 
To learn to slow my body down, listen and connect with it, and quiet my busy mind are just some of the many benefits I derive from my time with Mardi. Really feels like a guilty pleasure; definitely one of the best things you could possible do for yourself. JENNIFER KELLY
Yoga Nature_Yantra 2The Yoga Beginners Course has been such a refreshing experience, learning the positions first and also to understand the “why” made a big difference in my enjoyment potential of yoga.  I felt Mardi’s authentic, grounded nature ensured I had the best opportunity to really reconnect with “me” and I am very appreciative that the classes were based in a tranquil natural environment.  I look forward to attending further classes with Mardi.
