Seminar Testimonials

Marney White Seminar feedback:

  • "Boy was I eager and excited that Ms. White was doing a presentation about mindfulness.  Her demonstration of the finger holds for stress relief was enlightening.  Ms. White's (seminar) was both encouraging and well-received."  Sonia Medina, Para Professional
  • "I liked learning about the EWG's Dirty Dozen and Clean Fifteen.  I never knew!"
  • "I found the discussion about protein, and good vs. harbful carbs informative." 
  • "I loved learning about the benefits of dark green leafy veggies, and the effects of cortisol from stress."
  • "The workshop was very organized and informative.  It gave us useful strategies that we can utilize in and out of the classroom."
  • "Marney White's de-stressing workshop brought a new aura to our school.  I observed that, before the workshop, people were stressed on so many levels....  After Marney unleashed techniques, it has brought a more peaceful aura to our workplace.  As for me, I was reminded to use some techniques I had long abandoned."  Carlos Castro, Science Teacher
  • "Macros explained - great!"
  • "As teachers, it goes without saying that we constantly feel some kind of stress....  However, we often don't know how to handle that stress....  The Mindfulness for the Classroom presentation provided me with strategies to help cope with stress.  Specifically, I was taught ways to incorporate finger holds and breathing techniques to manage daily stress.  I loved these two methods because they're simple and can literally be incorporated AS I'M TEACHING!!  After utilizing these strategies, I realized that the students benefit as well because I can better tackle issues as they arise - a less stressed teacher = a happier classroom, and happier students!  The (seminar) was beyond appreciated - I can't wait until the next one to see what else I can do to cope with my daily stressors! " - Matthew Bashore, Social Studies Teacher
  • "Now I know about good carbs vs. bad carbs!"
  • "I came away with great ideas for how to beat sugar cravings!"
  • "I'm constantly on a diet and I learned I am eating the wrong types of foods."
  • "Marney explained a very interesting stress management technique....I found(this) very valuable for the staff and students who have used it...because (many of) our students need to learn how to more positively de-stress through their mind-body connection...this was useful for teachers as well .... This technique can be useful when we find ourselves in high-anxiety situations.  It made me realize how important it is to connect my feelings and thoughts.  The handouts she provided were another useful resource that were greatly appreciated! "
  • "The recipe ideas were helpful, (and so was) the suggestion to schedule...relaxation."
  • "I found the goal setting information helpful."
  • "My mother-in-law was in your (Raw Cooking) class Wednesday night...she was telling me about it and how wonderful you are...."
