I will be recommending Make Do Co.'s Mastery Meditation program to all my family and friends as this program is so important to help us learn the skills and tools to be prepared for what comes our way in our daily modern day lives. Jo's teaching style and presence helps students to digest the concepts and benefits of meditation and mindfulness. Jo, you are an amazing teacher. I can't thank you enough! Read more
I learnt how to nourish my soul, indulge in the present and how to create, and return to the quiet recesses of my mind so that I am a happier, more productive business owner, mother and wife. Read more
What an amazing weekend! Thanks Jo for your enlightening teaching! Your methods and instructions are clear and patient and for someone delving into meditation for the first time, the welcoming feeling you gave me made my experience so much more. Definitely a must do. Read more
I highly recommend the Mastery Mediation Workshop with Jo. The course had a perfect balance of theory and practice, and I am so happy with the helpful information and tools I learned and have been able to incorporate into my everyday life. Jo’s teaching is superb! Her happy and relaxed style coupled with a beautiful setting in Orange made for an equally informative, energising and relaxing weekend. Read more
I had a lovely weekend learning about meditation with Jo. The course was suitable for any ability with modifications available for any issues. I came home feeling relaxed and with a new addition to my tool kit. Read more
Jo has a real skill for getting to the heart of what matters, while facilitating the work in a very organic and empathetic way. We had the kind of conversation we so often forget to have, and which is crucial for our future development: What do you care about most? How can you align your work, and life, with these values for a healthier, more productive and fulfilled life?
Jo is an extremely skilled facilitator and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her. She helped us to generate ideas and practical results, build life skills and relationships and also helped us to really enjoy ourselves and feel nourished and relaxed. She made fantastic contributions to our group discussions and steered them skilfully, whether it was about business development, goals and vision or interpersonal relationships.
As soon as I moved my venture back to Sydney from San Francisco I set about finding the community of people who are all about purpose led businesses. Jo is at the centre of this community and we worked together over a number of months to really help me crystallise that for us here at uno. If you are trying to build a purpose led business, individually or with a team then her insight, guidance and support will give you a massive head start.
I would highly recommend Make Do Co. for anyone looking to become equipped with tools for living a balanced, broad and fulfilling life that brings a heightened level of awareness to the work place.
I asked Johanna to introduce NVC to our creative company of delicate souls. They embraced the ideas with relish and we all spoke candidly of our fears and motivations. I would recommend Johanna to anyone who wants to communicate with more compassion.
I came away from the three days brimming with energy and ideas. Sarah and Jo are truly professional and authentic in everything they teach. They are generous with their time and knowledge; and it is obvious how much they love what they do.
An inspirational facilitator, Johanna provided our team at Stellar* with enlightening insights into workplace relationships and ways to deal with difficult situations.
Make Do Co.’s Yoga Weekend was a fantastic way to take some much-needed time out and reset. The hands-on, intimate yoga classes were a great way to improve my physical yoga practice, while the girls’ in-depth knowledge and mindfulness techniques gave me some really beneficial tools to take home.
