I was surprised to discover a few unknown “hidden stressors”

The Stress Detox workshop left a lasting impression.  Working in a fast-paced industry and juggling a personal life is stressful.  Let’s keep it real; I’m not the best to be around when stress is present. 

Through the course, I was able to identify my stressors and stress symptoms.  I was surprised to discover a few unknown “hidden stressors” that affect me, mentally and physically.  With a few tips and techniques, provided by Ritu, I realize that I can manage and control my reaction to stress in a more effective and positive light. This shift will help me live a more productive and healthy life, as well as, improve relationships with those who felt the wrath of the “stress beast”.  Ritu, thanks for shining this insight to me and the team!

Christina RobertsWhat you are able to guide people through is hugely helpful to promote connection, camaraderie, and make even the toughest challenges feel a little less severe than “solving world hunger” as we define the best options for moving forward. We can choose how to show up and why not lighten the load.

Sophia KizilbashRitu is the ultimate teacher and mentor for me to recover from my stress addiction!  I am a very ‘in my head’ person, I can move mountains, build organizations and make things happen.  The downside of this type of high performance is I made serious challenges to my body and my health.  Ritu makes is so easy to detox from stress.  She is a real world leader and teacher, who translates ancient art forms so we can supercharge our lives to invest our energy where it truly matters.
