“I have been working in the animal world for 15 years, the last 8 as a vet tech, and more and more I was feeling bogged down and suffocating with no way of getting out from under it. This class helped me in ways I didn’t know I needed or could be helped. It really made me aware of my body and what it was trying to tell me and how to deal with the emotions and feelings in a constructive way.” – Samantha, Head Technician
