I have been fortunate to experience Trish Hart as a yoga and meditation teacher and colleague, and more broadly and informally as a health and wellness advisor over the past few years. I am a stage 4 ovarian cancer patient who has been working to heal myself with western medicine and complementary integrative therapies since my diagnosis in 2016. Trish has been a Godsend to me in this pursuit.
She is a kind, compassionate, and smart instructor who is truly at peace with herself and totally committed to her mission. She is more than a mentor; she is a true witness to spiritual, mental and physical health and wellness. Trish goes out of her way to help students find and refine their meditative and yogic paths but also to refer them to a carefully vetted group of other health and wellness professionals for additional services such as counseling, acupuncture, reiki, and even physical therapy and sports massage as needed. Trish’s yoga classes –whether in the studio or outside on the beach - are challenging in all the right ways and meet students exactly where they are. She infuses physical movement with exactly the right amount of meditative mindfulness.
One leaves class feeling exhilarated yet deeply refreshed. Her mediation classes are carefully planned and structured with equal time devoted to substantive mini-lesson/lecture, guided practice, and discussion/q and a. She supplements classes with written, video and audio materials for students to access at home. Her treatment of the subject matter is thorough but gentle and never intimidating. Participants from entry level to more experienced find themselves engaged and excited about incorporating meditation into their daily lives.
Knowing Trish is such a bright and shining spot in my life. Because of her, I now regularly access meditation, reiki, counseling, and sports massage in addition to yoga and acupuncture. I also am much healthier than most patients who have received four separate lines of chemotherapy treatment and/or have my level of metastatic disease. I know that Trish’s expertise, advice and counsel are a significant reason why I look and feel so well today. I am and always will be grateful to her for these gifts.

We loved your Foundations to Meditation course so much! Your teaching style and spirit were inspirational, and we learned so much. We feel you equipped us with real tools that will allow us to continue building our meditation practice! C&R 7/19
I had a wonderful session with Trish on-line with Zoom yesterday! It left me energized and set up to use some new stress management skills during my chemotherapy and radiation treatments. She is a fabulous human, incredibly intuitive, and I know she can help me help myself through these next coming months. Thank you for this gift! Anonymous 7/19
Where do I even begin to thank you for your beautiful work Sunday? Thank you so much!!! Our heart is full from the morning we had with you, it truly was a refreshing way to start an otherwise sad day. The girls all loved your circles. It was the most engaged they were all weekend! Thank you for showing your support. Hopefully we can have you see them again soon!! Ann Marie L., Co-Chair "empowerHer" Mother's Day Retreat 5/19
I wanted to drop you a line and express my gratitude for your practice yesterday. It was honestly the best way to start a full day of connecting and development with peers from my leadership team and with our Region. Big picture - you have a true gift, we know this, but I really do value, love, and appreciate the impact you have on me. It takes alot to slow me down, never mind meditate, and effortlessly you are able to get me to tap into that. THANK YOU for being you! ❤️ I simply adore you and am so grateful to have you a part of my life and in our community Jillian, Lululemon Leader 5/19
5A million thank yous to Trish Hart for coming into my classes today to talk about tools for dealing with stress management with my students. You made more of a difference than I think either of us realize. Seriously. You could see the positive visible changes in my students when they walked out of class. They all walked out feeling better about themselves and their stress levels thanks to you, Trish! Just what we needed to prepare us for the end of the semester! @ Emerson College This also shows what a need there is for the college student population to be able to have this information. I really want to do better at incorporating your messages into my classroom! Can't wait to see you again! -Keri T, Emerson College 4/19

When I started with Trish I was suffering both physically and mentally. For almost four years I have been seeing Trish privately, and have found a new sense of joy in my body and calm and my mind. Trish is one of the most naturally- talented instructors I’ve ever met. She has such a wide depth of knowledge, and is so kind and caring. I am grateful for all she has done for me over the years. -Eleanor C. 12/18
Thank you so much for a great session on educating our department on stress and stress management! I heard great feedback! You are an amazing teacher lady! You provided the right mix of walking people though their minds, and then having them practice the techniques. We want you back again!

My cousin and I had the best time at class...she could not get over how great she felt after Yin!! And also was amazed by your energy and the ability to do whatever magic it is you do to us. I was so happy she could see in you what I see...which is still kind of a mystery, but there is something about you that speaks to my should and allows me to be my vulnerable self. I can never thank you enough! Love you so much! Lauren Devine 5/18 Director of Inspiration at the Magical Moon Farm
Thank you so much for sharing your gift of knowledge with my staff! This seminar just scratches the surface to the wellness world and each aspect of our health as human beings! I appreciated your experience and insight as well as how you made this information fun and interactive! Can’t wait for future seminars 😊 thank you again! Nicole, County of Plymouth 8/18
I wanted you to know that I played really well yesterday and won the Ouimet! Your breathing really helped me, and I did the yin series before I played...so helpful! -Jacquelyn Eeley 'Pro Golfer" 7/18
John has thanked me multiple times tonight for "making him" meet with you today. He admitted how surprised he was at how relaxed he felt. I asked if he wanted to make another appointment, and threw out once a month, and his response was "at least once a month"! I'm so glad he opened his mind to trying this, I think it will be great for him to build these skills before high school. -Anonymous Teen's Mom 3/18
We rave about Trish Hart's "JUST BREATHE" class!! We appreciated her scientific based approach to understanding relationships between our brains, nervous systems and our breath. We loved her knowledgeable and supportive manner that helped us master the breathing techniques for controlling our stress and boosting our performance. -Danielle 2/18
Hi Trish! Just had to thank you for working wonders for me with yoga, breathing, meditation and just your soothing voice in general. Baby came early and you helped me through labor and delivery so much! That was all you! Then during delivery and also during labor, I was focused on my breathing and used one of your mantras. It helped so much, really made everything very bearable. So thank you for taking so much time to do my assists and props to make sure my pregnant self was supported. Lee 3/18
Thank you for helping my daughter. She said as we were leaving that you are amazing and that "it feels like you cut her open, took out all her junky gunk and replaced it with a ray of sunshine. I can never thank you enough" Susan 1/18
You are an angel with the ability to transform, Trish! Thank you for sharing your healing practice, it works wonders for me. -Pam 3/18

“I have been working privately with Trish Hart for the past 2 years. When I came to Trish I was lost and struggling with alcohol and substance abuse. I had been been to other yoga classes, and also tried meditating on my own, but the merging of the two is one of Trish’s specialties. Yoga for 12 Step Recovery is now a cornerstone of my recovery and restoration to a healthy body and mind.” -Andrew 11/17
Trish is a wonderful and gifted mind body instructor. I started working with Trish while recovering from a long term illness that was physically debilitating. Trish’s skill, patience and support has allow me to start regaining my body strength and improve flexibility, while diminishing body pain. The improvements I have experienced have exceeded my expectations. I encourage others to attend her classes. Carla 10/17
I think of you so often. I am so grateful that I was able to be a part of your great class! I use the techniques you taught us EVERY day and it has made a HUGE difference in my recovery. I feel renewed, alive and much more flexible, getting stronger by the day. I hope to join one of your other classes soon. I love your energy and style of teaching. Susan 6/17
Trish, I just wanted to thank you for our recent journey. I have a long way to go but your support and enthusiasm is giving me a reason to never give up. I am looking forward to a lasting friendship and to continue healing and be able to make up for lost time. Thank You- George Gipper Donovan 4/17
Thank you so much for doing the special classes for us. I was so happy to be able to do them as a family. It's something I would have hoped to do but didn't become possible until I met Elena and you. What is special is that you were able to connect with each of us in different ways, which then made it easy for us to come together. We love you. We so appreciate your extra care and attention. Hopefully we can revisit doing them again in the future. With heartfelt gratitude. Mary 3/17
I went to a workshop on restoring the breath by Stress Management Specialist, Trish Hermann Hart and learned a variety of breathing techniques. She was awesome! ( looking forward to taking one of her yoga classes!) It was awesome ... just allowing myself to slow down and breathe for an entire hour! Brought me back to the here and now. It's all good.
