Meditation Testimonials

Here you will find some testimonials from our clients that have taken Meditation For All Ages Courses:

I have been meditating for the past two years, mostly using guided meditation apps and attending group sessions. Although I benefited from those forms of meditation, it was not until I took a 9 week personalized mindful meditation course taught by Gita Nilforoush that my practice became disciplined and I finally learned what mindfulness really means. Gita is an excellent instructor, she made me feel so at ease, and I was looking forward to each meditation course because I knew I would learn yet another important tool to implement into my everyday life. Gita guided me week after week into various mindfulness practices and explained my personal hurdles in a way that made sense to me and I was immediately able to implement her teachings into my daily routine. Honestly, this course helped me more than seeing my therapist, or any other workshop/self improvement practice that I have tried in the past. I am so thankful that I had the opportunity to take this course, and I absolutely recommend it to anyone who is looking to improve their current practice or learn to meditate.

After going through a stormy period of life, I began experiencing anxiety. I reached out to Gita for help. She patiently worked with me and taught me how to meditate and apply different techniques when I experience anxiety. I also suffer from chronic body pain. Gita guided me to make a connection with inner body and send love to every cell. Thank you Gita. You thought me to send healing love to my painful body. It works.

Gita’s 8-week meditation course gave me the tools to effectively incorporate mindfulness into my daily challenges. As an experienced meditator, I did not think that meditation courses had much to offer me. However, I did struggle with consistency in my practice, which is arguably the most important component.

Gita took mindfulness down to the bare essentials, which made it easy for me to stay on track with my practice. Now I have a solid regular practice and I owe that to Gita’s simple program. Her relaxing presence was reassuring, helping me to build my daily routine. I still use her mini meditations daily; they are quick and leave me feeling refreshed and ready to attack my day!

I suffered from anxiety and panic attack almost everyday in two years. I tried everything to  reduce my pain and make them go away from me . I was under many medications for my panic attack and anxiety which I couldn’t live without them . My biggest fear was I running out of my pills or forgot to have them somewhere I go. I was so fortunate to see Gita and become familiar with the mindfulness meditation. She teaches me the best technique of breathing and bringing the awareness  to whole of my body . Gita’s 8 weeks meditation helps me to extend my kindness and more forgiveness towards first myself and then my friends. By learning her meditation I can control my stress and feeling peaceful .At the end , I cut all of my medications . I feel great  and very thankful for learning mindfulness meditation by Gita.

Because Gita’s way is repeatable with ease, I have been able to drive greater focus to my goals. I am more resilient in not getting easily distracted by peripheral shiny objects.

This benefit is one of the easier ones to describe from what I have been experiencing with the Mindfulness journey shared by Gita. I have also been clearer and more peaceful as I have kept with  practice.

If you want an easy, repeatable mindfulness journey where abundance waits, ask Gita to be your guide.

Gita has been a huge driving force and motivation in my conscious shift toward not only a mindfulness practice but also way of life.  She has introduced me to so many different methods of meditation both in the form of a formal practice and also just in daily life routines.  Her passion and abundant knowledge on the subject of mindfulness and the brain has helped keep me motivated and looking forward to each and every session. She has also provided me with tools I can use forever and when I’m on my own, in any situation life brings my way!

I have personally tried many meditation programs before taking Gita’s meditation classes, ranging from online apps such as Calm and Headspace, to several in-person meditations classes. However, I found Gita’s 8 weeks program much more effective as it was personalized to my mindfulness needs. Through the sessions, Gita would observe my progress and needs, then tailor the mindfulness practices accordingly to help me gain maximum benefits. This allowed me to better understand my own meditative capacity, and learn what type of meditation works best for me and how and where I can use them.

I highly recommend Gita’s 8-week meditation program for whomever likes to embark on a mindfulness path, as the program introduces very effective techniques and empowers you to put them in use as needed throughout the day.

I am so pleased for having a clear understanding about Mindfulness Meditation and how it can be helpful in my life. When I started my sessions with Gita, I was truly hopeless and sad and could not believe that I will be able to be back to a normal, stress free mood again. But it did happen right after the first class! Amazingly it did work for me very well and I kept getting better and better after each session. I am truly satisfied as not only I feel much better in my daily life but also that I have learned how to deal with my thoughts and emotions that I can say good bye to stress and sadness and start having a joyful life. Thank you so much Gita for all your caring and the way you taught me how to do, enjoy and get so much benefit from Mindfulness Meditation.

I think the biggest compliment I can give is that I always felt light and happy after the class. Your passion for the practice is clear and you certainly have inspired me to continue with Mindfulness Meditation. I had no idea what meditation was all about before the course. But I now have an understanding of the varied practices and how they are used. Meditation is a lifelong devotion and one I wish to continue for my lifetime. Thank you for bringing me to this point and sharing with me your knowledge and experience. I really enjoyed the course.

I’ve been meditating in groups or on my own for several years now so I didn’t expect much more out of my meditation experience with Gita beyond the accountability I always need help with. Boy, was I surprised! Meditating via Skype with Gita was nothing short of transformative. I can still feel every cell singing in my body. Our meditative partnership, informed by her gentle guidance, allowed me to access deep emotion and understand what’s really going on for me right now. I’m so appreciative of her powerful presence and the impact it’s had on me.

Just wanted to post a testimonial about my experience with Gita’s 8-week program. Like a lot of us, I have been struggling with anxiety and stress for a few years now. I had heard about mindfulness from a variety of sources, and thought I would look into it. 8 sessions later, I feel I am started down a clear path toward better wellbeing. Gita’s program took me through the steps so that I can effectively use meditation on a daily basis. I highly recommend her services to anyone interested in learning more about mindfulness.

Gita ‘s meditation classes not only showed you how to do meditation, but WHY it should be an indispensable part of your daily routine. In Gita’s class, I learned the purpose and benefits of meditation beyond a conscious level. From her guided meditation classes, you get so much more than what you could learn from listening to online videos. Gita is an amazing teacher; easy to follow, easy to listen to & you will learn the meditation fundamentals of different methods and breathing techniques.

Her classes have been a great way for me to get back into meditating more frequently and see the improvement in the quality of my life.

Hi I wanted to share the experience I have got when I was taught Mindfulness Meditation for the very first time by Gita , although it was just for one session, I realized by closing my eyes , taking a few deep breaths and concentrating on the tip of my nose…for around 20 minutes, I feel calmer , become more relax and happy. Since then I meditate every day after work on my way home on the train, and by doing it I gain energy and don’t feel tired at all after long hours working.

Gita is that rare individual who has successfully integrated the best of her business/finance skills with a deep caring and understanding of people. The result is someone who you know you can trust, whether she’s managing sophisticated corporate finances or helping you identify your next best move. Her deep commitment to meditation and her superior intelligence combine to make her an outstanding leader in any endeavor. It was a privilege to work with her.
