Cheryl and her team of Mindfulness experts have worked with our business for the last year introducing the concept and techniques of Mindfulness to our staff. The impact they have made to those that have signed up to our in-house classes has been amazing – “It was life-changing” and “Thank you for allowing us the time during work to focus on our emotional wellbeing, enabling us to be the best we can be”. I look forward to continuing to work with Ovio to further embed the techniques into our workplace culture.”
