Instant Stress-Busters at Work™
“I attended Aila's workshop at the Behavioral Integrative Health Conference. I was not expecting for this "stress-busting" class to apply so well to my personal AND professional life -- Going to Aila's class was very much like a breath of fresh air, and I can honestly say that her mantras and practices (like tapping!) continue to be useful and beneficial to me in my everyday life. Her energy radiated throughout the room, and was incredibly infectious. You could tell immediately that her intentions and advice came from a place of warmth and personal experience. I would recommend Aila's workshop to anyone interested in bettering themselves and learning effective ways to cope with stress and improve their well being.”
