 What People Say:


I just listened to you and Ashley's talk, following allowing with your exercises, I can't tell you how amazing and relaxed it made me feel. I felt so relaxed, feeling intensely relaxed sensations through my body only felt before during acupuncture or orgasm. I felt them starting at the soles of my feet and slowly reaching up my legs towards my heart. I felt it radiating across my chest and entire abdomen. And with each breath the sensation grew stronger and steadier. It's been about 20 minutes and my body is shaking. I am amazed at how effective just breathing can be and I thank you so much for sharing your knowledge.
