Lia was an AMAZING meditation teacher! She was calm, patient and very 'Zen' for our entire lesson, which really helped me to relax and calm down myself. Her instructions were easy to follow and I was able to achieve a deep level of relaxation normally absent from my meditations! Using the skills and techniques I learned from Lia, I now have a much easier time getting into 'the zone' every time I sit down to meditate :) thanks Lia!

As far as chess goes, anyone can learn how to move a piece, control the board, or utilize move patterns. The thing that separates the average from the adept is the understanding of the multiple levels of "playing". Starting with your mind set, moving on to the game board, and ultimately defeating the opponent sitting across from you...

Defeating your opponent is literally the goal of chess. So, it is important to remember to have fun while being competitive.

I am a Chess Player, and have been since elementary school where I joined the chess club and became addicted to the game. That's when found out my younger brother was cheating when he taught me how to play a few weeks before. Needless to say he cant win against me anymore...OK fine, he gets lucky sometimes...at the end of the day we supported each other and our friends at a bunch of chess tournaments!

Now, at this point in my life, it is time to share some chess knowledge and support someone who is looking for that ...

About Omar

As with anything else I teach It is important to understand the fundamentals and then gain knowledge from those experiences onward. Learning and enjoying anything depends on practice experience as well as separate tactics that cause you to be unique and create an advantage only you have.

Omar is an awesome instructor to teach on Method Acting.He understands the student aspiration and train accordingly.he motivates the actor with his excellent advises and provide inspirational thoughts to the actor.I am sure he can make best actors/actresses/artists through his own specific ways of method acting skills.thank you Director:).
Craig
When I first began my search for an acting coach I was stressed out because I knew I needed help but I didn't know how to start. Luckily I found the Director, Omar. The Director began by interviewing me to see what my goals and potential were. He then developed a specific lesson plan designed around what he called "The Fundamentals" and I progressed since then. Now after a few months of the Directors support, I know confidently that I am an Actor. I learned things about human behavior and method acting that I couldn't find in any video or online source. The Director somehow made things simple to understand and I'm glad for it. I am not done with the lessons, but since he has supported me and shared his knowledge, the least I can do is share my experience. Thank you Director!

I Just want to thank Daria one more time to take ample time to offer me a tarot reading. As most of us know that, the answer that we seek, we already have the innate ability to get it, for part of us already knows the right answer.
I am grateful to Daria because she talked with me throughout the whole process with such great care and got me to the root of my situation.

It was a positive vibrant and productive session.
I wish her a very happy and healthy spiritual journey! 🙏
Barbora S.
Daria read tarot cards for me the other day as I've asked her a question whether me applying in a new career field was a good idea? I've finished college in 2018 and couldn't find employment for over a year, then I finished a qualification course for teacher assistants and soon after I was given my first stable employment (been freelancing before). Full of optimism but with a grain of doubt I asked the stars/cards/higher power whether me choosing this career was a good move. Daria was able to confirm my own observations plus she added wise words of her own.

The reading doesn't give you a clear yes/no answer but if you've done a fair bit of introspection beforehand, the cards' advice may calm you down or offer you a new perspective you haven't considered before.
Kate K.
Daria gave me an online tarot reading about a month ago, and I came away with an experience that was enlightening and empowering. What I found unique about her approach as a psychic is that she combined her skilled intuition with practical advice that I could actually use to improve my life and find a measure of calm. She begins her sessions either with a specific question her client has in mind (whether it's related to relationships, family, career, aspirations, spiritual life, etc.), and if you do not come to her with a specific question, she is more than willing to do a general reading for you. (In my case, I sought advice related to my anxiety issues and their impact on my relationship with my fiancé, and over the past several weeks, things have really improved! So thank you!) If you are looking for someone who can help you see your circumstances more clearly and put you in touch with a spiritual sensibility, then Daria is someone to go see. She is not one of those charlatan psychics who will charge you excessively and then cloud your mind with bizarre, hazy predictions. She's an open-minded person and a great listener, and she's there to give you the tools to find joy and meaning.

I had so much fun learning how to make cotton paper flowers at Mia’s workshop. She was super patient with me and my flower came out so beautiful! I would highly recommend taking her class, I’m using my new skills to make a photo shoot backdrop for my wedding.

Now that I've been sewing for 6 years, I constantly wish someone would have taught me as a child. There's nothing like the sense of accomplishment you have from making your own clothes or altering a garment that didn't fit or giving a gift to someone you know no one else has. To be able to give that to someone else is what I dream about. Whatever your motivation for learning how to sew, I'd love to be instrumental in teaching you! All ages and skill levels welcome!

About Amber

Hi! I'd love to be able to help you on your journey of sewing. It's such a magnificent skill to have and there's nothing like the joy of making something yourself. Even if the end result isn't what you imagined or "good", the process from start to finish is one of the most life-giving and rewarding

Amber is very sweet and polite. She also listens and makes sure she understands what my expectation is. Besides my background of sewing, I also have limited English efficiency that I worry a little. Thank you so much for being kind and patient to me Amber. ❤️
