Taking care of your mental, emotional, physical and spiritual wellbeing in a busy 21st century lifestyle is now more important than ever.
Using my expertise as a meditation teacher, self-esteem coach, and Yoga teacher let me give you the tools to manage your mind so you can live with greater ease and happiness and reach your full potential.
Ruth’s course is structured and easy to follow, presented in her comfortable, welcoming studio. Supporting notes and recordings give you something to refer to and practice during the week. Of course, it will take ongoing practice to gain all the benefits of meditation, but I am definitely on my way now, so thank you Ruth, I am so pleased I signed up!
I have been attending Ruth’s Pilates Yoga classes for over 10 years after hearing of the benefits of Pilates for strengthening the core and, in doing so, hoped to strengthen my back. I chose Ruth’s classes as she is highly qualified and her classes are small and cater for individuals. Ruth’s friendly, calming and encouraging manner is welcoming and puts me at ease during an, often, busy day. The exercises are always varied, interesting and challenging. I highly recommend Ruth’s classes. The atmosphere is fun and friendly and it doesn’t matter if you attend casually or every week. I always feel better afterwards!
The mental health benefits of meditation are well documented. The iRest meditation course with Ruth Oliver provides a safe and supportive environment to learn and practice the fundamentals of meditation and bring stillness and clarity to our often turbulent minds.
Ruth and her Integrative Meditation class were nothing short of amazing for my partner, Mike and I. Both being time-poor, stressed and high-strung as directors of our company, we were looking for something to balance our tense and fiery personalities. With Ruth’s classes we found it a very useful tool to help pull us away from reacting to the noise of everyday life. Searching within ourselves to find our own inner peace. In my own experience, I suffered a few traumatic issues such as my dog being stolen and having a car crash during the weeks I attended to her meditation. However through the use of iRest, I was able to control my negative emotions and “respond” rather than react. (I got my dog back in 3 days and handled the car accident unbelievably calmly.) I am ever so thankful for attending this class and have managed to put what I’ve learned into practice and help others become aware of their own negative states similar to mine by simply spreading the word of what worked through the classes. Thank you to Ruth who was absolutely brilliant and I highly recommend you take this class, as there is more to gain than one could ever properly explain.
I found Ruth’s meditation sessions very comforting, instructive and peaceful. I have learnt a lot. As a beginner, I have much more to learn, but I have been able to use some of the theories and practices of iRest in my everyday life. I have been assisted to deal with some issues that have been hanging around for a while, and the meditations have allowed me to be calm and deal with issues that come up in everyday life. I particularly found your sessions on finding opposites to negative feelings and beliefs very helpful, and I find that I can reassure myself when negative thoughts, situations, and feelings come my way. Thank you for your wisdom, your easy nature, and your ability to be a good teacher. Thank you Ruth.
