Hot Mess to Mindful Mom's  

"Every now and then you come across a speaker that does everything you hope and more. Ali Katz was one of those speakers. We invited Ali to an event hosted by our Young Women’s Cabinet. Ali has a unique down-to-earth way of speaking about mindfulness. She is genuine, engaging and interactive. The women in attendance were of various ages and were able to relate connect and relate to Ali and her story. The tools she showed the group were easy to incorporate into their lives. The attendees thoroughly enjoyed the event. I would highly recommend Ali."

"I recently had the opportunity to hear Ali Katz speak. I was so impressed with how Ali was not only able to make mindful meditation sound and look easy, but she gave us practical, realistic and useful tips to implement her tools in our own lives; making the most of a red light or grocery store line just became a time for calm instead of checking the phone. She is not suggesting hours out of your day, simply five minutes here and there. I loved it!"

"I've been lucky to attend two of Ali's workshops on mindful parenting and I find myself using her techniques daily with my daughter. During stressful times, aka temper tantrums, I'm able to think and speak more calmly to her and it's empowered us both! I find she listens better when I'm calmer and I've begun using my "Peace Begins With Me" mantra with her! A happy and calm mom begets a happy and calm home! We could all use Ali's expertise! "
