I attended Elevate to gain a better understanding of the mind, body, and spirit connection, as well as, how to better incorporate it into therapy sessions with clients. The training was insightful and therapeutic. The training was both knowledge based and hands on practice. This allowed me to learn personally how to make these connections as well as how to incorporate them into therapy sessions for my clients. I enjoyed this training and recommend it to those seeking to learn more about self care.

I really loved the Elevate training! Not only was I able to learn new material I was able to experience it and learn how to apply it to my own practice and my own life. I was able to spend my Saturday learning but also having fun in an interactive experience. I would definitely recommend this training to anyone in the field!

I had never done a private yoga session before, but I had pulled a muscle in my back and couldn’t do everything that happens in a yoga class so I asked Buffy if she could do a private. We had an amazing session that had me stretching my back in ways that I couldn’t for 4 weeks before this. Buffy gave great assists, and taught me lots of exercises to use for the future. The Lord is truly using Buffy to bring healing to many in mind and body. I am so thankful to have had this yoga session as my back made a swift recovery after it!

Buffy has a great spiritual aura and a positive energy about her that emanates to others. I’ve witnessed her make astounding differences in peoples lives — including my own. She is knowledgable, seasoned, creative, and diligent. She is willing to go out of her way for anyone as her main focus is what’s best for the other person. Her ability to process through and work accordingly with therapy clients is impeccable. She is devoted to her clients and strives to see growth in everyone and everything she encounters.

Buffy gets it. She gets that life is crazy and hectic but also gets that people need space and guidance to unwind, grow and thrive. She gets that in order to be made whole, you have to care for your mind, your body and your spirit. She puts so much thought and time into planning her classes, gives personalized adjustments and variations to students, and utilizes one of her greatest spiritual gifts- creating epic playlists- who else plays Beyoncé, Hillsong and Frank Sinatra in the same class? Buffy asks students of all levels and backgrounds to jump in the deep end. Having someone that is so encouraging of trying new things is so empowering; you will be surprised at how much you can accomplish in a single yoga class. Whether I am taking a power flow class or a restorative slow flow, I always leave with my mind a little clearer, my body a little stronger and my heart a little fuller.

It was one of my first times trying yoga and Buffy was a great teacher full of insight and easy to understand. Buffy was a wonderful facilitator who made yoga fun and meaningful. It was a safe environment that was calming and at times full of laughter. The Made Well Center for Wholeness is the perfect place to refocus your mind, body, and soul.

Attending the Elevate Training was an awesome experience. I loved how interactive it was. The time flew by! I gained some practical therapeutic skills as well as skills to enhance my own mind, body, and spirit connections. I hope to attend trainings hosted by Made Well Center for Wholeness in the future, and I would recommend others do the same!
