The Time is Now has received some fantastic feedback from its participants, including Lina, who joined the course with the aim of starting a wellbeing advisory service. Lina knew she wanted to run a business which offered yoga classes and wellbeing advice in education and community settings, but was unsure on how to get started. Since completing The Time is Now, she is now ready to take the next steps towards starting her business.
I really enjoyed and appreciated The Time is Now. It was very well planned, with activities that helped to have insight on the journey we would like to take, and also lots of resources to find support on it. The course is engaging and challenging. I really enjoyed taking action and interaction with others. This really supported my mental health during lockdown. Many thanks for your time I would totally recommend this course to othersLina, The Time is Now participant
