What Our Students Say About Yoga in Grantham.

Testimonial Hilary (1)_edited.jpg

Hilary Bradley | Retired Senior Strategy Manager

"I can highly recommend this course to anyone who wants to teach meditation or to learn about meditation for themselves. I am in the latter group.

Stefan is a master meditation teacher. He guided our group through a full programme of holistic meditation techniques - from warm up exercises to breathing techniques to full meditation.

He was always sensitive to each individual's experience of meditation and the journey we were exploring for ourselves.

I was new to meditation and we had a mixed group of newbies like me and some very experienced yoga and meditation practitioners. I found the balance of practice with others, teaching and meditation sessions from Stefan, time for self-reflection and the opportunity to practice my new found skills on our group - stimulating, fulfilling and transformative.

I've learned a lot about myself, about meditation and so much more. The joy of fully relaxing after so many years of not being able to is truly life changing and so beneficial for health and in so many other ways.

This was a challenging and always supported, fun and eye opening course - so many wonderful memories, too.

An added bonus was shared lunch where we all brought a veggie meal.

I am so glad I was in the right place at the right time."

"I've recently attended the meditation teacher training course with Active Balance. It's a great course that I would thoroughly recommend to anyone who is completely new to holistic meditation and wants to find out about it,  or a person with some experience who would  like  to teach meditation. Stefan has an amazing breadth of knowledge of the subject, both theoretical and practical and students spend much of the course  working together to practice the skills and techniques. All round an excellent course and I'm looking forward to other meditation courses."

“I thoroughly enjoyed the weekend Meditation Teacher Training course with Stefan and found it brought me a lot more insight to my personal practice and gave me confidence to consider teaching meditation to other like minded people.  The content, style and pace were just right for me. I liked the way we worked together and individually.
The venue is lovely and easy to reach from the A1, plenty of space to park and a nice area to walk in at lunchtime break!
I highly encourage others to take the opportunity to explore this course!"

"Stefan is a goldmine of yogi knowledge both in practice & in philosophy - his mentoring comes from the heart & his soul and with that, he nurtures & feeds a student's desire to know more, be more & immerse themselves further in the ever giving practice of yoga. I would highly recommend his teacher training to give you a strong foundation & a rich practice knowledge from which you can develop your own teaching style with confidence. His quirky yet gentle nature with which he shares this wisdom is magical."

"I've been with Stefan for about 21/2 years and can honestly say he is most definitely the best yoga teacher I've practised under. He makes everyone so welcome which is very important when you are new to a class as often the biggest hurdle is just getting there! He is supportive and humorous which makes the classes so enjoyable and I know I can contact him out of class hours if I have a question about my practice without feeling as if I'm intruding I have the privilege of training with him starting in May 2019 and am so very excited."

Janie McCormick | Community Events Fundraiser

"On behalf of St Barnabas Lincolnshire Hospice, I would like to say what a delight it has been to have Stefan heading up our Sponsored Yogathon for the last 5 years.

Stefan was recommended to me several years ago and didn’t hesitate when asked to help us create a fundraising event with a difference. He has donated his time and talents ever since and has helped us to raise in excess of £8,500 to date. Stefan has a passion for helping people and really makes an effort to make sure that everybody is welcome no matter what their level of experience. He is a pleasure to work with and we wish him all the best."
