“I was one of those sceptics who thought meditation was only for people who wanted to sit in uncomfortable positions all day long. How wrong I was! I was pretty much sold the moment I walked into the first session and met Linda. I knew then that if I could achieve Linda’s relaxed shoulders, even after I’ve had a long day at work in the City, then meditation was for me. Linda’s sessions help create a place for me to simply BE and help me to remember, as I face my commute home, that there is a quiet and restful place I can go – and it’s inside of me!” Kate Simpson, London
