    More than just a trainer

    12-09-2017 by Ryan Wolhuter

    Barbara from BBodies is an absolutely phenomenal trainer. She’s an all rounder who understands the importance of integrating nutrition, lifestyle changes, and exercise to achieve your goals. BBodies is a fully equipped exercise studio so you can do all of your training privately on their premises. One of my favourite things about Barbara is how she encourages you without needing to appeal to ego. She gets you to want to be healthy and fit purely for the enjoyment of it. When I first went to Barbara, I honestly didn’t believe I’d ever get back into shape. I thought the best I could do was damage control. She not only brought me back my confidence but inspired me to continue on the path. As a creative who’s relatively new to the industry, it wasn’t easy for me to afford personal training. Barbara helped me every step of the way, being very accommodating of my financial situation and working out a plan that worked perfectly for me. The only reason I stopped seeing her was financial issues, but I do intend to return soon.

    Answer from BBodies Personal Training Studio on 22-09-2017:
    Thanks for the kind words and great review. I truly enjoy training you as you are committed to the program and also take the responsibility of training and eating well outside of my studio, hence you getting the desired results of your efforts. Will welcome you back anytime.

    Visiting from London

    03-07-2018 by Dr A. Caley

    “Towards the end of 2013, I was experiencing a rather stagnant period of my life, not sure what I should be doing, where I should be doing it or even who I should be doing it with. My 40th birthday was fast approaching which added to my (dis)stress and frankly I was feeling rather lost. Flicking through the Wellness magazine, one article in particular jumped out at me – describing the author’s experience of Reiki healing at My Urban Retreat with Charmaine Haig -it sounded like just what I needed. Being a skeptical Brit, I put it on the side for a while and carried on feeling sluggish and dissatisfied for a few more days until I could stand it no more. What did I have to loose? Absolutely nothing…. Having arranged an appointment with Charmaine for an initial consultation I turned up feeling slightly anxious. With hindsight this was ridiculous as I left feeling ‘listened to’ and ‘loved’ and was looking forward to my next appointment the following week which was scheduled to be the 1st of 5 Reiki healing sessions. I never anticipated how Reiki would make me feel so grounded and full of warmth, love and life. I would leave each session with a beaming smile (and full of joy) and would feel revitalised for several following days with a greater sense of ‘self’. The effect of the sessions has not been limited to a short period of time but has changed the way I think about and live my life. I am so grateful to Charmaine for not only conducting the Reiki healing for me, but also for the helpful readings, hints and tips she gave me and the chats we have had between sessions. I can not recommend her highly enough because I can honestly say that she has helped me open my eyes not only to ‘my life’ but to the power and beauty of the universe in which I belong.

    Master Reiki with Charmaine

    Reiki with Charmaine was amazing! She offered the deeply intuitive yet gentle care that I needed at that moment in my life. Reiki with her was the beginning of a long yet necessary journey in healing myself. There's no one else I'd rather go to for guidance and care!

    Such a positive experience

    27-06-2018 by Shahnaz Cola Wrensch

    Charmaine has helped me using both reiki & distant healing to help understand what is going on in my life. It really helped me to change how I am feeling and be much happier with myself. She is so incredibly talented and I can't even describe how she can can connect to you like that from afar and give such accurate feedback. When she does, its intense and amazing at the same time. Definitely recommend the reiki, meditation and a distant healing if you can't go see her in person. She is my 'go to' person for healing!
