” I found these sessions to be life changing […] Dr Strahan is one of the most engaged individuals I have come across in the field of personal development.”

John P. , Mature Student, Rathfarnham

” I really loved the sessions with Barbara. They have improved my organization, time management and I feel much more prepared for my Christmas exams. I now have a regular study routine and plan. I feel a lot more relaxed and the mindfulness clears my head when I am stressed.”

Katie, 2nd Year Dominican College, Griffith Avenue

“My study skills and organization have improved immensely since starting this course. Beforehand I really didn’t have a structured study routine and since starting I’ve found that my timetable organization and certain study skills have improved a lot.

I found after practising my breathing that I felt more relaxed and less stressed and I feel like it’s a new method of de-stressing that has helped me calm down a lot. I hope to carry it with me through life.”

Ciara, Leaving Certificate Student, Loreto High School Beaufort, Rathfarnham

“I attended Barbara Strahan’s previous short meditation classes and would recommend them highly to anyone looking to be introduced or reintroduced to mindfulness of oneself. She creates, in her class, a relaxed, comfortable and supportive environment for self discovery. She has an obvious talent in guiding individuals within a group!”

Paul Higgins, Clontarf

“Before the mindfulness course with Ostinato, my stress and anxiety levels were affecting my everyday life. However, after a few sessions with Barbara my anxiety and stress levels gradually began to decrease.

[Mindfulness] has made a huge difference to my life. I am much more relaxed. I now take every day as it comes to live in the now.

Barbara is an excellent teacher, and I highly recommend this course.”
