“Our working model is unique and the trainers have effortlessly glided into co-production and designed and delivered calming and grounding courses with our peer trainers. The MYA trainers are very warm, welcoming and experts in their subjects. It’s a pleasure working in partnership with MYA.” Siobhan Poingdestre, Jersey Recovery College Service Manager
“It’s been lovely working in partnership with MYA to produce courses like Introduction to Gentle Yoga and Introduction to Mindfulness for Jersey Recovery College.”
“As a Jersey Recovery College student, I have attended the Introduction to Yoga course and it’s been very grounding for me. I have been struggling emotionally and this has given me time out for myself in a safe space. I look forward to the weekly sessions and the trainers are supportive and friendly. I wish it could continue!” Participant Yoga course
“I hadn’t done yoga before and found that our yoga teacher was very patient and understanding; taking into account different ages and abilities; she has certainly made me feel at ease.”It has been really beneficial having yoga offered in the workplace, especially as the job is sedentary and stressful. This offers a great way to de-stress and look after my physical and mental health.” Staff group participant
“Always a great opportunity to de-stress after a long week’s work! Many thanks for the opportunity.”
“She has made the group feel very inclusive by introducing ‘chair yoga’ alongside the mat yoga for a colleague with less mobility. Carolyn is always warm and welcoming and considerate of what people are wanting to achieve that day e.g. active and increased flexibility or more relaxing and calming.”
“In particular, I like that she will ensure we are in the correct position and give us suggestions on how to increase the stretch or alternative poses. I like the variety of essential oils that Carolyn brings in for us and I feel that she is very knowledgeable in regards to various oils and different types of yoga also.”
“A few months ago I couldn’t imagine myself doing yoga for someone without previous experience of Yoga.
However, since starting yoga with you, my perception of it has completely changed. Attending your weekly session has become part of my Thursday routine as you make the sessions very relaxing but enjoyable and exciting. Your knowledge, gentle attitude and consideration for individual capability is very encouraging ; and I must say the oils work wonders!
Always a great opportunity to de-stress after a long week’s work! Many thanks for the opportunity.” – Participants of CAMHS staff group
“Thank you so much for this opportunity it was truly amazing experience. Thank you for the all the time and effort you put in. I cannot thank you enough it was just brilliant. A wonderful experience which has really helped me with my issues and my relationship with my son.” – Participants of previous Mindfulness course
