Learning about PNI was enlightening and very beneficial on so many levels. The effect of breathwork and relaxation techniques are an absolute necessity to us all in our busy lives today. - Vonnie

Loved this course! Very informative with so much more to learn in the area of Psychoneuroimmunology. Thanks to Judy for her in depth knowledge, sharing and enthusiasm in this and for equipping us all to share and practice our learnings confidently and easily with others.- Nicole

I really enjoyed this course! It was so interesting to learn from Dr Judy Lovas who is an expert in this field. She was clear & succinct in her teachings & I could tell she really enjoyed teaching this subject. I've signed up for the Part 2 PNI course to expand my knowledge in this field. - Tamara

Dr Lovas is an exceptional educator who inspires her students to continue further education and PNI understanding as well as practice what they preach with diaphragmatic breathing.
The small groups were very interactive and targeted to the group. Thank you, Dr Lovas! – Jacqui

I heard of PNI back in 2004 when working at a hospital in Singapore. It had changed the lives of patients with cancer and HIV here. We learnt how they used guided imagery for these patients.  This course has given me a clearer picture of PNI, and its application. I feel I can talk about it with more conviction and confidence now. - Reema
