WHAT PEOPLE SAY

(Business Yoga) 

 

Incorporating yoga and mindfulness into a business environment is the perfect partnership… and requires absolutely no lycra!

 

In planning a program for our AGM, we were really keen that once everyone had arrived after a busy morning, they would be able to switch off and be truly present for the day ahead. By including a 30 minute session at the beginning of the meeting, it not only allowed our delegates the time and space to refocus but also created a real warmth of atmosphere with a few giggles as we began to stretch and deepen our breathing.

 

Patricia guided us effortlessly through the movements which made it accessible for everyone… and the only outfit change was a removal of our shoes!  

 

The time passed so quickly and as the session drew to a close, the group was re-energised and focused on the agenda ahead.

 

I would highly recommend engaging with Patricia about how to incorporate yoga and mindfulness into your next corporate event.

I worked with Patricia to offer a Business Yoga Class for a small group of clients.

She created a very welcoming and relaxing atmosphere, especially for those of us, including myself, who had never experienced yoga before.

This was perfect to get a bit of peaceful time in the middle of a busy professional schedule.           

All clients were delighted and I will certainly get in touch again with Patricia.

(Mindfulness and Meditation 8 Week Course)

Patricia held an 8 week mindfulness course via zoom for our students during the Covid-19 pandemic. At a time when there is so much uncertainty, Patricia’s calm and confident approach to teaching mindfulness and meditation practice helped to ease anxiety and was a great support to many of our students. I would highly recommend Patricia and would love to work with her again in the future. Diolch/Thank you! 

Teresa Ferreira

(Mindfulness and Meditation 8 Week Course)

This course came in the perfect time. During lockdown I was feeling really anxious without knowing how to control my feelings and my thoughts. With this Mindfulness 8 Week course I learnt about different meditations and most importantly I learnt how to control obsessive thoughts and some panic attacks.

Although this course was lead on zoom, I felt that I wasn't "alone" because we were meditating together in a class.

Jessica Purbrick

(Mindfulness and Meditation 8 Week Course)

"I recently took part in an eight-week Mindfulness course with Patricia. Throughout the sessions, I felt a huge shift in my mental and physical well-being. Patricia was very supportive throughout the course, and as a total beginner, I felt fully motivated by her classes and her warm presence to practise each day. I would definitely recommend her classes to anyone wanting to give Mindfulness a try - thank you, Patricia!"

Ella Roberts

(Mindfulness and Meditation 8 Week Course)

‘I really enjoyed the course. I really liked the fact we explored new meditations every two weeks and gradually expanded our practice. Patricia was really encouraging and guided us through the meditations in a friendly way.
I wanted to find a way to help manage the stresses and anxieties that come with working in the creative arts industry and I discovered zen meditation was a great way to take time out and connect with myself. I am looking forward to continuing the practice!’

(ONLINE Corporate Yoga)

'At the start of lockdown I made the decision that whilst my team were on Furlough, I wanted to support them and help keep them calm and connected.

Patricia was available with the perfect solution with one hour zoom yoga sessions practicing Hatha Yoga. It went down a storm with the team, they absolutely loved it.

Patricia is a phenomenal teacher and really helps all different levels of experience to develop their yoga progression.'

(ONLINE Corporate Yoga)

'During the last few months we were lucky enough to be able to continue our weekly yoga sessions with Patricia using virtual online platforms. This allowed our team the opportunity to be able to unwind and benefit from her sessions whilst not able to meet up physically. These sessions were massively beneficial to us all at a time of uncertainty and worry. I’d highly recommend this to any company or employer to help lift and maintain team spirit and wellbeing. '

Dr Julie Baillie

(ONLINE Corporate Yoga)

“Patricia’s online classes were a godsend, particularly during the Covid lockdown which brought with it a lot of challenges. Having a weekly class to keep up with my practice and make some time to invest in my own wellbeing was a lifeline in difficult times. The classes are well-structured and each participant still gets individual coaching to correct postures and improve practice. The online classes have so many of the benefits of a live in-person class but with the additional convenience of being able to join in from home; a perfect way to bring work and life back into balance.”

Roseann Logan

Programme Manager at Health and Social Care Alliance Scotland (the ALLIANCE)

‘We have had Patricia come to our office as part of our Healthy Working Lives every week since last year. It is great on a Tuesday to have that opportunity to spend some time for ourselves and keep us going for the rest of the week. Patricia's yoga classes are excellent, they are suitable for all levels and from the moment you walk through the door she puts you at ease. I would recommend Patricia and her classes to everyone interested in yoga, whether an experienced practitioner or a complete beginner.’

Emma Gourdie

‘I always look forward to my weekly yoga class with Patricia. It’s an excellent way to bring some calm into a hectic day. I have had a variety of yoga instructors in the past and Patricia is certainly one of the best. She builds upon our abilities each week, but still accommodates for all levels. I would recommend Patricia to anyone interested in yoga, experienced or beginner, especially those looking to find some tranquillity in their busy lives.’

‘We have recently hired Patricia for weekly morning Yoga sessions open to all our staff to attend before work. The aim was to promote a calmer start to the day and to propel health and wellbeing in the workplace. The uptake has been high and we have a core group of attendees. The opportunity to spend an hour without distraction is bliss! Thank you Patricia!’

Julie Baillie

Actuary at Barnett Waddingham

(Corporate Yoga)

‘Patricia's yoga classes are excellent, an oasis of calm in the middle of a busy office day. Like many people I thought I didn't have time to exercise, or to fit anything significant into a lunch break, but having Patricia take a class in our boardroom is perfect. She comes to our office every week, always on time and ready to go and the class is always worth attending as we build on previous work and learn new techniques and poses. Patricia accommodates all levels of ability and I can see that I have made a lot of progress in a short time. I would recommend Patricia and her classes to everyone interested in yoga, whether an experienced practitioner or a complete beginner.’

‘Patricia’s serene presence and graciousness are what sparkled my interest in yoga to begin with. Patricia is not only a fantastic teacher but also instils her love of yoga, passion, patience and kindness in her students which makes classes all the more involving yet relaxing at the same time. I would never go back to life without yoga again!’

(Business Yoga Event)

"I run a website design company based in Glasgow. A lot of my business come from networking. Thus I attend them religiously. But it can get boring, especially when the mix of people is 90% the same. 

 

 

 

Patricia's event was different from any I've ever been. It was more entertaining and kept me interested. I also met new people at the same time. 

 

 

 

I would recommend Patricia's events to anyone who's looking to shake things up from their regular networking. "

(Business Yoga session)

I attended a Business Yoga session with Patricia, which was a unique and energizing experience.   Patricia created a supportive and friendly atmosphere in the class and shared some interesting facts about yoga and physical activity. She is clearly very knowledgeable and an experienced & trustworthy teacher. I felt strong & empowered after the session and I particularly enjoyed the fact that no yoga mats and gym clothes were required and I could continue with my day straight after.

“Patricia’s classes at our office are the perfect antidote to a stressful week sat at our desks. All the participants find them to be uplifting, invigorating and informative. Patricia makes us feel comfortable regardless of our ability, and we look forward to our monthly classes.”

"I would say that I found the experience peaceful and relaxing, the perfect way to unwind after a stressful day at work."

Helen Machen-Pearce  

(Integrated Restorative Yoga)

Private session

I attended a 1:1 private session with Patricia, and it was arranged around my needs at short notice. 

Patricia guided me through a session with Hatha, Slow Flow, and Restorative practice which was truly integrative and perfectly suited to my needs, and my love for yoga.

Patricia was extremely patient but also inspiring. Not only could I enjoy the practice, but I was delighted by her focussed guidance and gentle alignment suggestions and adjustments.

I take the opportunity to try a new class or practice with a new instructor wherever I go, and I can honestly say Patricia  is outstanding.

I recommend you take a leap and try a class/ event or even better a 1:1 private session with her.

Thank you Patricia

(Meditation Workshop)

I attended the meditation workshop with Patricia which was deeply beneficial in so many ways. During the session we learned how to slow down mentally and listen to our thoughts, we even explored ways that we can incorporate meditation in our day-to-day lives.

 

I and my colleagues all took something away which, for some who had never tried meditation before, grew a thirst to keep trying after feeling the benefits from our time with Patricia! – Thanks so much Patricia for your knowledge & your calm – it was greatly appreciated in many, many ways!

 

Beata Rachowicz  

(Hatha Yoga)

Private sessions

The yoga class run by you helped me to wind down after a stressful working week. I also felt energised after the class and ready to tackle another busy week. It also helped me with my chronic back pain and uplift my mood. 

Thanks so much again. 

Lorraine

(Reiki Sessions) 

 

I didn’t know what to expect from my first Reiki session, but it is like nothing I have ever experienced before. Patricia’s energy is warm and soothing. She creates a very peaceful environment and I felt instantly calm and relaxed in her presence. This allowed me very naturally to open my mind and body to her healing. 

 

After suffering a year of stress, both personally and professionally, I had a persistent pain in my stomach that conventional medicine couldn’t treat. However, during my first session with Patricia I felt clearer both in mind and body. Two further sessions allowed me to feel even more free of the ball of anxiety whilst it being so intensely relaxing. I slept incredibly well after every session, and felt calmer, energised and in turn more productive in the proceeding days. 

 

I will definitely be using Reiki in the future to keep on top of my stress and to increase a greater feeling of mental, emotional and physical well being. 

 

I can’t recommend Patricia enough and I am very grateful of her help and healing.

Las clases 1-2-1  con Patricia Galavis son excelentes tanto para principiantes como para niveles avanzados, se ajustan al nivel y ritmo de cada uno, de forma dinámica y fluida, facilita el aprendizaje con su atención al detalle en cada asana que se realiza... Personalmente, un aprendizaje y recorrido excepcional el tiempo que asistí... 

Rebecca Pennykid

(Mindfulness & Meditation 8 Week Course)

Patricia's patience, knowledge and passion resonated, even through the screen. Attending an online mindfulness course was a great experience. Although I was a little skeptical to begin, meditation practice has changed the way I view myself, both mentally and physically. I'd recommend Patricia's courses to anyone who wants to know themselves better and explore how mindfulness can allow them to access a deep sense of self. 

Tom S

(Mindfulness & Meditation 8 Week Course)

Patricia`s mindfulness classes have helped me to establish a regular daily routine of meditation and this has really benefitted my well-being and reduced my stress. 

It is so usedful to discuss the practice with other course participants and to draw on Patricia`s expertise. 

The practices are varied and you can learn a wide range of techniques in quite a short space of time.
