May 2019 Spring Retreat: “I hoped for a “time standing still” kind of day, just for me. Relaxation and meditation. And I hoped to learn something. Were they met? Yes! The day went by quickly, but at a very relaxed pace. I have had trouble with my psoas for years–that it is the “fight or flight” response muscle makes so much sense. Which activities resonated? Well, the gong quite literally resonated with me! Using the different vibrations to activate the chakras was illuminating. You set an atmosphere of safety and acceptance. Your manner is so humble and kind, yet knowledgeable and professional. Impressive. I would certainly recommend this retreat day to others.”~ R.C. Rose Valley Sk, Canada
April 2019 Spring Retreat: “I am trying to find the words to express my gratitude for this day. I lost my husband last year so I am experiencing a lot of change, both personally and in life and I need to “find” myself and “quiet” my mind. I am a caregiver to everyone but myself. I went to this retreat as a gift to me, and truthfully, I didn’t have a lot of expectations going into the class but now feel every single person would get something from a retreat like this! You provided a safe nurturing space where I could release a lot of emotions without judgement from anyone, and days later the emotional release is continuing but in a good way. Yoga can be challenging but in this class it was easy to achieve because you demonstrated what was expected and allowed us time to achieve comfort in the position as well as time to balance our chakras. I also love that you provided handouts of the poses we did so I can recall what worked for me. My mind is always racing and I was very surprised that I almost dozed off with the relaxation I felt. I expected to sleep better that evening but as time passes I am sleeping for longer sessions and feel more rested. My co-workers asked how I enjoyed the retreat and I strongly suggested we should book you for our education day! It is great for mental health and acceptance of others feelings and life experiences. I am forever grateful you came into my life, thank you.”~ W.O. Saskatoon, Sk. Canada
February 2019 Yoga for Grief: I was looking for an intimate group where I could feel safe to feel whatever my body felt during the classes. I also hoped to process emotions related to a recent loss (health crisis) as well as previous losses. I had no experience with restorative yoga postures before this class. Holding a pose for a length of time and it being restorative (almost fell asleep at 2 classes) is a wonderful new phenomenon. A big take away for me: observing what my body is feeling and not attaching a story to it. I loved the visual that came to me from the definition of emotion, a stirring up, moving out. I loved Lynne’s voice and the way she shared her own experience. I loved how Lynne assisted us in our postures, seeing if there one more little thing she could offer to support us. I would and have recommended this program to others.~ J.F. Saskatoon, Sk., Canada
February 2019 Yoga for Grief: I look forward to continuing my journey with this restorative, healing and gentle yoga practice. Lynne is knowledgeable, compassionate, and gently guides from empathy. The class sizes are small enough and intimate to offer a quiet energy. She brings to her class her unique strengths, personal experience, life coaching skills and care for each student. I slept so well post our sessions, and also found my journey to be one of gentle healing, as I spent quiet time in reflection, honoring my personal journey, and respecting that which is asking me to grow deeper. ~S.M. Saskatoon. Sk. Canada
February 2019: 6 week Yoga for Grief: I took this class to use restorative yoga for pain relief. The positions and the breathing techniques really helped me. My biggest take away was to not be in my head explaining things to my body, to have more self compassion and allow my heart to open and take things as they come. I will and have recommended it to others.~K.A. Saskatoon, Sk.
October 2019: 6 Week Yoga for Grief Program: “I came to the class to find some solace to with my loss. What I came away with was so much more. the yoga poses and the breathing practice helped me to let go of the built-up pain I have held in my body. Even though I came to deal with the loss of my daughter, I realized I was holding onto grief of all sorts from my past. I will continue with the poses and breathing exercises. Thank you for your kindness and wisdom .”~B.C. Saskatoon, Sk.
October 2019: 6 Week Yoga for Grief Program: “I am new to this deep grief experience. It affects every cell in my body in ways I had never expected nor understand. I needed to find tools to help my body deal with this loss so have been on the search for them. Yoga for grief is one that I discovered and have been trying. It has allowed me a supported opportunity to explore in a mindful way, this life changing experience. This practice encourages mindfulness, awareness, self compassion and self care. I appreciate the space and the support to explore these as they relate to my present reality.” ~K.G. Saskatoon, SK.

“I began attending regular Gong Bath Immersion Meditations while suffering from a paralyzed vocal chord due to stress on the vagus nerve after surgery. I experienced the soothing vibration of the gong as a real aid in healing – emotional, mental and physical. When after three months the vocal chord was fully functional once more, I was so thankful. Gong Bath was an integral part of this recovery and really helped my overall peace of mind when going through a difficult time.” ~P. A. Saskatoon, Sk. Canada
“I wanted to thank you again for your Gong Meditations. The last two times I walked into the sessions with high anxiety and back pain, and left feeling completely rested and pain free. I found peace and respite during the meditation and felt so much better after them.” T.R. ~ Saskatoon, Sk. Canada

“The Chakra Gong Yoga program helped me to feel more balanced/grounded. With the restorative poses we practiced at the class I have better neck/shoulder range of motion (which had been an issue). I have also noticed my sense of smell and taste are stronger. My sense of smell has been practically nil for the past 10 years. I would attend another set and recommend this to others.” ~ A.M. Martinsville, Sk. Canada

“I really enjoyed Chakra Gong Yoga. It was a first for me and as meditation it worked much better than other previous meditation/yoga session I attended. I felt that the gong took me to another place and helped me just focus on the moment. The gong made me feel as if I had been washed inside and my soul was soothed. I also liked the restorative held poses.” ~ B.D.. Saskatoon, Sk. Canada
‘The Chakra Gong Yoga classes benefited me in terms of dealing with every day stresses and taking time for myself to simply be vs. do – a process of slowing down and embracing life. I learned a lot about chakra’s and their healing benefits for mind & body; of shedding the need to take responsibility for others actions and learning how to listen/not respond…I also found benefit in the stretching poses as a way to release tension from my body. I would take another class and recommend this to others.” ~J.S. Saskatoon, Sk. Canada
“The Make Your Mind Matter Program was the perfect fit for me. I joined because I was dealing with a lot of stress and anxiety in my life and thought I had to quit my job. I tried therapy, doctors, specialists, but I learned all I really needed was a radical shift in my thinking. Lynne offered an understanding of how to make an effortless transition to a new way of looking at things. Not a lot has changed, but everything is better. I highly recommend her program.” ~A. W. Saskatoon, Sk. Canada
“I really appreciated how much effort, enthusiasm and passion Lynne put into the Make Your Mind Matter program.

I would recommend this class to anyone who is ready to change their thoughts and become a better version of themselves.” ∼S.C. Saskatoon, SK, Canada
