Testimonials

Through Mairin's work, James (14 year old AAA hockey goaltender) has been able to better focus his attention and energy towards the goals he wants to achieve. Mairin has created a very supportive, friendly, non-judgmental environment for James, where he is free to explore his physical and mental capabilities in different ways.

The physical part of Mairin's approach has helped James with his core strength and his flexibility, which is very important for a young athlete. The mental aspect of Mairin's work definitely has helped James better channel his energy, positive or negative. The spotlight shines bright on a goaltender, and Mairin is helping James remain focused and confident, through successes and failures alike.

I find often I can't dig into a character until I've spoken the lines 1000 times or read pieces of literature related to the period or circumstances of the play. However, [Mairin's method] got my mind analyzing the character emotionally from the get go. [There are a] wealth of possibilities for interpreting a character that open up when you do get in on this emotional level early on in the game.

As a writer, I believe Mairin's approach is very useful in disengaging from characters, when the time comes. For me, watching and helping characters evolve is a very personal experience, and I become attached to them, as do readers and audience members - but likely in a deeper way, because of all the time spent with them. Letting go is crucial towards moving fully and successfully into new work. Her approach lets this happen in a thoughtful, gentle way.

After an 18 month period where both my personal and professional lives were badly shaken, I was out of whack and I needed help. In Mairin, I found a receptive, kind, and truly helpful guide. Her exercises were tailored to my individual needs, and they have really aided me in re-aligning my inner order. I have found the effects of the work to be lasting, and because Mairin sent me pose guides and guided meditations, I know I can return to the exercises whenever I need to on my own. Mairin listened closely to me and encouraged me to articulate what was changing and shifting from my perspective as we worked.

I whole-heartedly recommend Mairin's approach to anyone going through a loss, a crisis, or anyone feeling "off their game". I can't stress enough how helpful I have found Mairin's work. Through it, I've been able to release some old baggage, tap into my creative centre, and start work on approaching my life from a more centred, joyful, and grounded place.
