“I finally ‘got’ the true meaning of Mindfulness Meditation and the extraordinary experience of its practice, when led by Ronya Banks. She taught us that Mindfulness does not begin and end in the class, but rather, its practice is absorbed inside us to be carried to our day to day lives, bringing us, with a more open connection with each other, greater energy, awareness, patience, appreciation, along with both enhanced productivity and calm….I feel validated and joyful in Ronya’s presence, the mark of a true teacher…. ”
