“Toby Maguire, Holistic Master Practitioner, took me through a guided meditation to combat an overactive mind’s insomnia and savage nightmares. What was extraordinary was the effect. I went back to my room and fell asleep for an hour, lunched and then nodded off for four hours, supped and then went under for another 15. The sleep was rich, deep, euphoric, nightmares still present but clouded somehow, my brain detached from them in a way, but it certainly generated a feeling of wellbeing. The goal as in yoga is self-practice. However, if a guided meditation can have this sort of result, then I count myself as yet another impressive convert”

“I run a small group of engineering and high tech companies , so from time to time because I am passionate about my work my companies I find I can be very stressed and up tight relating to work , this can manifest it in me being snappy to my staff , family and i just wasn’t enjoying myself as much as I should do. . From Toby i was able to learn some simple techniques that have really helped me to stay focused, more relaxed and definitely be more productive and hence be more profitable”.

“I first encountered Toby at The Body Holiday on St Lucia a few years ago, where he provided a much-needed gentle guiding presence. In our session at The Met we focused on my career – and most specifically, finances. He was very clear and to the point, listened beautifully and was very human and real in his responses – a great combination in a coach. After an engaging hour over some delicious green tea, I had a much clearer idea about where to put my energy and what parts of my work I needed to leave behind me once and for all”.

“Toby’s ‘Managing Stress’ course is well structured and concise, giving one an understanding of the effects of stress on the mind and body, which I think very few of us actually realise. I think many of us have so many ailments that we can put down to stress. More importantly than that, Toby gives you the tools to alleviate stress by taking away the mystery surrounding meditation with practical meditation sessions which are extremely useful. Understanding the physiology of your body and how meditation actually works for your body is surprising and takes away any scepticism. Incredible what you can achieve with abdominal breathing! The latter part of the course shows you how to try to take control of your life in order to achieve what you want and feel more fulfilled. Toby’s course left me with a feeling that I really could do what I wanted and am still feeling the positivity after 2 weeks which I have to put down to regular meditation. Toby’s course should be available on the NHS, the government would save a lot of money!”

“Toby, I wanted to take a few minutes to convey my deep appreciation for the experience that you provided for me this past week. It was absolutely a wonderful gift to spend 5 days with you sharing your insights on healthy living, specific to the personal needs of the participants. I am already benefiting from incorporating just a few new practices into my daily living. I am confident that over time those benefits will only increase with practice and learning.”
Carolyn Walker, CEO, New York
“Hi Toby, I just wanted to drop you a note to thank you for setting me off on a new path, I am returning to the UK with a renewed energy to live my life to the full, focus on the present and what I want to achieve rather than doing it for other people and you had a big part to play in that.”
