April 2014 - and almost the end of another group's journey -
Lorraine says "Thanks for helping me learn so much, in so many different ways and on different levels"
"Thanks for all your help and support throughout the course. You have made it interesting and enjoyable" love Jill
Teresa said "Thanks for all your support. I am so pleased I met you on my journey and pleased I have learnt reflexology, it is fantastic"
"Thank you so much for everything. New life path ahead" - Loo.
And from an earlier group -
"Thank you for being such a wise and wonderful teacher on this lovely course. I have learned so much from you! And thank you for your loving support and believing in me ........ Marie-Josee G
"Thanks, Glenys, for a great course and all the laughs, now looking forward to my new career!" Debbie P
"Thank you for "everything", you are an amazing person, will miss our weekends....." Chris E
"Dear Gorgeous Glenys, thank you so much for everything, you're amazing!" Love Lottie G
"Will miss coming to the classes, but thanks for opening up a new career for me in such a supportive way." Love Bridget
"Thank you for all your help and support. It has been a pleasure ......" Charlotte Z
"Thank you for always being there for me. I have had such a fantastic time - lots of laughs, love and hugs" Linda W
"I have felt really empowered by the freedom that Glenys has allowed us throughout this course as well. She has held such confidence in us from the very beginning, even when we have doubted it ourselves and maybe dragged our heels on occasions, wondering if we knew what on earth we were doing, or whether we were pointing in the right direction when it came to seeing case studies ....."
Sheena Scherdel, a student from the first Level 5 group, writes:-
"Glenys has a wealth of knowledge to impart to her students, not only with regards to reflexology but also life in general. She does this in a caring, loving and fun way. I feel privileged to have been part of the first group of students to study clinical reflexology at Level 5 and have made some lovely friends, gained and immense amount of knowledge and skills and developed spiritually, too."
Another student from the same group writes:
"Thank you for all your support and teaching on such a wonderful course (Level 5 Reflexology). I think you are amazing!" - Vanessa
Oddny, a student from Iceland living in Grimsby writes:
"This was definitely one of the best things I have done for myself.......... It is easy to feel optimistic around you as you easily encourage students to be what they are and also feeling happy about it as well. I thought the teaching was excellent even it was hard work but good and the way you teach it you make it sound easy and fun"
“Well, where do I start...... what an incredible first weekend you have given me, and the rest of the group. I find your energy and way of teaching to be amazing, it is done with such a zest and love for what you do, that it doesn't feel like ''teaching''. I was speaking with the girls during the lunch break today and they all agreed that most of us already feel like best friends with each other. There is a wonderful group of people, and I love our discussions and talks when ideas are just bouncing off the walls, it feels great.
For a while I hadn't found anything that truly stimulated my mind and gave me the interest and stimulation that I crave, and this has. Me and my fiancé have had dinner with my mum/step-dad this evening, we have just got back home now and I have spent from 5.30pm when we got there, until 9.30pm showing them the videos from my usb; explaining Cells and skin structures and working my magic on my fiancé’s feet. My mum was beaming from ear to ear because she couldn't believe how much it got me so passionate about it.
I wanted to thank you so much, because this might well be my vocation on life now, but if the tutor doesn't make it vibrant you just won't be ''feeling it''. Yourself and Viv are wonderful women, and true goddesses of the Reflexology world!
Another group coming to its close - tears all round at the last teaching class! It's a privilege for Viv and me to teach these wonderful women - and the man! Thank you, we'll miss you!
Comments received - and Facebook has been busy!:
"Girls, this past year has been a whirlwind and one i would do all over again. I think we have all pushed ourselves beyond anything we thought we could do, and i feel a new person now. The journey we have been on has been incredible, and what an honour it has been to have been taught by 2 leading ladies. I'll never forget a single moment, and i know there will be plenty more girly times ahead in the future!♥ ♥" nadine
"Anahata girls- I've just put a link on!!! Thanks ladies (and David!) you have taught me so much this last year. Compassion, spirituality, acceptance, freedom just to be me and to look at life from a different perspective. Glenys, you are so right we truly are goddesses!!! Xxxxx" lyndsey
"Oh, I need more tissues, you'll ruin my nuns make up! But you are very right, we have been on a fantastic journey, guided by 2 wonderful ladies and have met some special people. Must invite them all round to the convent for tea! Xxxx " Kathryn (bit of an in-joke!)
"absolutely agree Lyndsey, it's been amazing. We have all come so far and it's been mindblowing; hard work, but so rewarding. I know each and every one of us is going on to do wonderful things for people, and there is plenty more healing to come.
We've all spread our wings a little more now and ready to fly! xxxxxx" nadine
Earlier comments :
"Thank you for a brilliant weekend. I am thoroughly enjoying the course so far and I am so dissapointed I will not be able to attend on the 15th/16th for the next class."
"During the course weekend, I was so excited with the whole learning experience that I cannot wait for Module 3 later this month. The pathway feels familiar and happily for me "a new beginning"............ Mandy S
"A brilliant course that I would recommend again and again. How lucky we are to have the option to study reflexology in Lincoln. Glenys and Viv are experts in their field and have created a course that ticks all the ' regulatory boxes' ,and more. The study days are well planned with different methods of teaching applied. There is always help at hand, either during the study days or in-between and amazingly Glenys seems to always answer the phone. How does she do that ?
If you are undecided my advice would be 'go for it, and enjoy' " - Alyson S
"If learning thoroughly is what you are interested in then, the Anahata School of Reflexology with Glenys and Viv is where you want to be. It is enjoyable, exciting and a thrill, as well as serious learning.
I felt the dark horse amongst the group. I had no background in anatomy and physiology. I had never done anything in the field of complementary therapy before.
Students are allowed to be themselves and express their thoughts and views, regardless of whether it makes sense. Modules are well structured and the course is broad based.
A great learning experience and I was only hoping for a pass grade. I did not make the distinction, but nevertheless came away feeling quite capable and accomplished.
If anything I had enough information in my head. I should have easily been able to gain a distinction. This I can only attribute to the expert tuition given. If I could do it then anyone can.
Thanks again lovely Glenys & Viv." Zena K
"The moment I walked into the classroom at the Anahata School in April – I just knew I had made a great decision!
Glenys and Viv, our tutors, are two fabulous, friendly ladies who teach in a relaxed and fun way and make all the hard work and study much easier with their coaching styles.
I haven’t got a medical background but it doesn’t matter, the course is so good, you can learn all you need to know and I’m really enjoying every minute of it.
I often think I should have done this years ago, but if I had it wouldn’t have been with this great school as it wasn’t set up then – and I really wouldn’t want to go anywhere else to learn – why should I – this school is just the best!" - Angie F-G
"The course notes are so well written and Glenys puts the information across in such a way it makes it easy to understand" - Sue R
"Thanks Glenys. Just want to say that I really enjoyed yesterday's session and feel that I'm enjoying it more and more as the weeks go on. I'm looking foward to starting my case studies too! See you in a month!...... Natalie x
Lyndsey C – “I am so grateful to be learning this fabulous therapy with such special ladies like you and Viv- thank you xxxx”
