All Testimonials

Being a professional astrologer, I was in search of a guru who could connect the inner soul with the outer world. After meeting Margaret Glatfelter, my search ended.

She has all the experience and wonderful knowledge I was looking for. I must say one should try her. I am sure you will come out a better and more positive person after working with her.

Thanks for everything you do.


I had doctor appointment, just a physical. My blood pressure was really high, 170-some over 90-some.
The nurse left, wanted to take the blood  pressure again after some time.
I recalled Margaret’s meditations, calmed every part of body, and focused on my “mind’s eye”.
Everything went black and silent, I had absolute focus. I “woke up” just before nurse walked in.
She took my blood pressure again, it had gone down to normal at 120 over 80.


The Reiki II Training with Margaret was an incredible experience and journey. It was extremely informative and provided me the opportunity to have a POSITIVE life altering experience.  I wish I would have had this opportunity years ago. It was an unbelievable “happening.” Margaret is a wonderful teacher and she does a fantastic job of making one feel relaxed which allows the energy to flow throughout the entire experience.  I am very glad I did this and that Margaret was my instructor.

Also, as a former  player, Head Coach and Athletic Director, I would highly recommend these sessions to all athletic teams. They can help prevent serious injury and are great for meeting the mental and emotional challenges teams face. These sessions are positive training methods that will change the way teams will train in the future.


I used to buildings. Then one day I fell. I wasn’t supposed to wake up – but I did. And when I woke up, I had to learn how to do everything again. Walk. Talk. Eat. And my mind has been racing at 200 miles per hour ever since. During your meditation tonight was the first time my mind has been quiet in 30 years.


Margaret makes learning yoga and meditation easy. She communicates her deep understanding of the yogic sciences in a very clear and concise manner.


For years, I have had severe shoulder pain and limited range of motion from sports injuries. Depending on the movement, the pain was excruciating.  I tried everything – surgery, cortisone shots and physical therapy but the pain was never gone.

Reiki was my last resort. I was very skeptical but decided to give Reiki a try anyway.

I took a Reiki Level I Training from Margaret and have practiced Reiki self-care on my shoulder regularly ever since.

The results are amazing! My pain is pretty much gone and my flexibility has increased by 80-90%.

Before Reiki, the pain was constant. Based on a scale of 1 – 5, the pain level has gone from a solid 4 to 0 or 1/2 since my training.

Reiki has proven longer lasting and more effective than anything else. 



I used the alternate nostril breathing practice before my recital. It really cleared my mind and got rid of all my nervous tension. The negative thoughts that people were judging me went away. Then I could really focus on the music I was about to present. I had a very successful recital.


Working with Margaret in yoga and meditation has helped with my fibromyalgia. I’m not in constant pain any more. I can work longer at my desk and walk more in the mall. I have had problems in my hips and my knees for years. I don’t get the numbness in my knees any more or the nagging pain in my hip.

I used to get massive pain in my knees – the the knee cap and joint. It would go numb to the point where I wouldn’t be able to walk. I no longer have that. The chronic pain I experienced in my hips as a result of an injury I sustained five years ago is gone as well.

It has been helping with my cervical lymphadenopathy. I don’t have the pain in my neck like I used to so I don’t have to take my muscle relaxers any more.

It has improved my sleep.  I am experiencing less stress. I am reaching the flexibility I would like.  

This is after 8 weeks once a week on Wednesdays for about an hour of yoga.



‘Sofia’ is a private client.  We recently added meditation to her self care regimen.

Sofia: Your meditation CD has been a life saver for me. I used it during my big event to prevent panic attacks. Every time I felt stressed out and I couldn’t fall asleep.  Every time I was trying to meditate to a YouTube video and it wouldn’t work to relax me. Every time I tried a Yoga Nidra video on YouTube and it didn’t work I would be like, “Oh, forget it! I’m going to just turn Margaret on.”

There’s something about the voice, the pace at which you’re going, the words you’re saying. The whole experience for an entire hour is incredible. I would immediately start feeling relaxed and weightless which is where I was looking to be.

What I like about your approach is that you’re not just repeating (monotone) big toe, second toe, third toe… A lot of the Yoga Nidra videos and CD’s do that. You have a certain variety so I do not get annoyed by what I hear.  Instead I can just relax into the conversation – into the flow of what you’re saying. I loved it.

Before the big event and during the big event I used it in my hotel room.  I knew it was exactly what I needed.  I wasn’t taking any chances.  I would just turn on Margaret.

Margaret: What does a panic attack feel like?

Sofia:  I feel someone has their hands around my throat. No matter how hard I struggle, it’s impossible to escape. I can’t breathe and I feel like I’m suffocating. It goes into my stomach.  I feel it in my head.  My legs become numb. Then my heart starts jumping out of my chest.

The vertigo starts after my heart starts jumping out of my chest.  I know that’s my cue to leave the room or it will turn into vertigo. The worst thing that could happen is the vertigo in front of clients.

Margaret:  When do these attacks happen?

Sofia:  When I get annoyed with a situation or when I’m afraid.  I’ve recently developed stage fright.  My business partner has had to step in and speak for me at past events.

Margaret: What do you do when then they happen?

Sofia:  I walk.  I frantically run around the room to stop it.  Then I start crying.  Then I tap tap tap (EFT – Emotional Freedom Technique) just to do something. Then I take medication.

Margaret: An anti-anxiety medication?

Sofia: Yes. I worry about getting them, you know. It takes so much energy to prevent the panic attacks that I get exhausted. Thanks to your meditation, I only had one during my big event. It’s been a big life saver for me.


Thanks so much again. I feel amazing. I was very relaxed all day yesterday because of our energy healing session and fell asleep that night like a baby to your CD. I finally slept deeply for the first time in over a year.  I’m more relaxed and resilient to everything around me. I look forward to more energy healing sessions with you.


It was a fun conference and you were fabulous. I went out as soon as you started speaking. Well before your meditation bit. What a finale! Thanks for all.


Finally tried your Yoga Nidra CD!  Great for insomnia. It was like you were right there. It worked so well, I didn’t want to wake up.


WARNING: Margaret’s yoga classes are highly addictive.



Margaret:  These practices don’t just manage pain, they remove the root cause. To benefit fully, don’t sleep. Remain aware. Watch all impressions, sensations and emotions. Just follow the sound of my voice.

Elena:  I don’t fall asleep. I listen. But maybe I’m unique.

Margaret: When you do these practices, you heal. You dissolve stress and eventually come into resonance with the vibration of peace and compassion. This is your full potential. You relax into it.

Elena: Healing. You know healing is very important. That is what everyone wants.  A lot of problems and issues happen from stress so stress really is the underlying issue.  I don’t think people buy stuff to help them unwind. They might turn on a little YouTube. I don’t know what type of things people do to manage stress but for healing that’s important. I’m paying you a ton of money I wouldn’t pay for just stress release.  I started working with you because I was in pain.  Coincidentally, I also unstressed so that feels good.  But my initial reason, my main reason is that I want to be pain free. I want to be healed. That’s why I see you.

Margaret:  Do you feel that this is healing you and helping your pain?

Elena:  I mean I have not been able to find anything before you that actually worked.

Margaret:  What all did you try?

Elena:  Physical Therapy, Chiropractic, ointments and creams that my chiropractors recommended.  I worked with a local Chiropractor as well as one of my clients from Canada who is also a Chiropractic professional that has a spine center in Canada.  I have taken pain medications. I was considering surgery. I do a lot of stretches and I still do them but the first time I actually felt relief was after that very first session so…

Margaret:  You can’t argue with success.  If it works ….

Elena:  But I think that the biggest reason I work with you is healing. And my favorite thing about this is that I don’t need to do anything.  I just turn it on (your CD) or turn you on (private session) and I just lay and listen and whatever is happening in the thought process is helping. I’m assuming that’s how it works. I have no idea (much laughter) but I’m pain free.


I sit at a computer all day and I get tense in my neck and my shoulders because I don’t get to get up and move.  When I come to Yoga Nidra, I am really tense in the shoulders and neck all the way up into my scalp. Even my mind is tense. That’s where I hold all my tension. When I leave Margaret’s classes, I am totally relaxed. I have no tension anywhere. It’s wonderful.


I was shocked when Margaret’s energy work actually had an effect on my barely-there libido. A long, bad, marriage wounded it and cancer treatment pretty much finished it off. Amazingly, I had a sizzling erotic dream after only the first treatment. Margaret rocks!


I have had many different sessions with Margaret, from various reiki treatments to relaxation and deep breathing yoga and encourage everyone who has an opportunity to take advantage of a session with her to not miss out. The sense of inner peace that I feel when leaving a yoga or reiki session is amazing. Margaret has a “sixth sense” of being able to tune-in to your individual needs and tailors her sessions accordingly. Margaret’s profound insight coupled with her calming, soothing voice promise an unparalleled experience you won’t forget!


THANK YOU again for taking the time this morning to ‘bring me back to life.’ I really enjoy our yoga sessions and look forward to making the time to come sit on your dock and breathe new life energy back into my spirit.


In an energy healing session with Margaret, I always leave feeling completely liberated, balanced, and at peace. As an artist and musician, this is crucial to my career and very being so the body is fully open to the creative flow of the Divine and Inner Being. Margaret connects these two, the Divine and Inner Being, allowing me to experience full freedom of creative intelligence in love and light.


I started practicing yoga about 10 years ago at various studios in New York City. At the time, I thought yoga would be a good way to maybe stretch a little and get into shape. I never even took into consideration what it could do for my mind. After moving to Hanover, I was asked by a couple of ladies to join them in a yoga session at Margaret’s studio. I came out of the first session absolutely blown away by our practice. Before that day, I had no idea yoga could focus my mind in such a way. Margaret’s creativity and generosity of spirit makes our practice a beautiful challenge each time we meet. After more than a year of study with her I have increased the flexibility of my body and of my mind. Each student is never pressured to push too far, but is always gently encouraged to REACH for more. Her inspired teaching style has made me more aware of my body, my mind, and of my spirit, and I continue to grow every day thanks to the gift she has given me.


My Reiki session was amazing. I cleared subconscious blocks that had been holding me back for years. It gave me clarification of my life and helped me focus on my goals. Physically it healed me of 6 cysts on my right ovary and 3 on my left. Reiki is a gentle healing modality that leaves you ready to face your world.


Margaret’s yoga classes are unique. She is sincerely steeped in the wisdom and poetry of Hinduism, and renders her understanding accessible to her students. And into the Beauty of Hinduism, with her formidable intelligence and inspired creativity, she weaves understandings from other wisdom traditions she has studied. No two classes are alike; each class addresses the needs of the moment. Her practice of the asanas is lovely to watch and her classes are physically effective. And then comes the crowing glory – her yoga nidras, which are rich and intuitive and deeply satisfying.


Margaret incorporates the best of many practices… traditional asanas, martial arts, and meditation mixed together with a wonderful balance of fun and spirituality. It has been the catalyst for transforming my body and mind into a healthy, strong, and grounded organism; for that I cannot thank Margaret enough. Plus, we really have a lot of fun along the way! Certainly no two sessions are exactly alike so it’s never boring, and each day I walk away having learned something new to expand my universe just a little bit more.


From Margaret, my body is limber and calm. My mind is relaxed. I’m physically, mentally and emotionally stronger. Now I know my truth and walk it with confidence.


Studying yoga with Margaret has improved my health and integrated body, mind and spirit.


I have studied yoga, meditation, Reiki and additional healing modalities with numerous teachers over the years. As a fitness professional and yogi, I can say from experience that Margaret is authentic. She’s the real deal.


Hi Margaret, This is Ginny, I was in your class this evening and I want to thank you for the impact your class made on me. I have done yoga over the years and your class was far better than any other. As you may know I was rushed in leaving when the class ran later than I thought it would. I was worried about my 15 year old daughter who unfortunately worries too much when I am late. What I want to tell you is that tonight because of your class I responded to her differently than I have in the past. I simply called her and let her know that I was running late. I believe that because of the balance and peace that I received from your class I was able to care for myself and my daughter in a much better way. I look forward to continuing my yoga practice with you. Thank you again. I really appreciate your healing presence.


Margaret’s approach to yoga is unique and fulfilling. She challenges the body and relaxes the mind using techniques that are subtle and innovative. I would give her an A+ on her preparation, her presentation and her application in the science of yoga. She makes the experience complete and I always look forward to her classes.


WOW! I just came from my first yoga class with my daughter!! We were with Margaret Glatfelter and she is unbelievable!! For a while during the meditation, I felt as if I left my body….no kidding. Also stretching, etc…beyond my expectations…and wonderful host. Yoga Master! Would encourage all of you to get in touch with her…even get a group of us to meet with her! I feel this will be one of the most beneficial things I have done for my life…mind and body…THANK YOU MARGARET!!!!


I’ve been struggling with back and hip pain ever since I decided to become more fit two years ago. Chiropractics, massage and physical therapy provided only temporary relief. The pain always came back. Through energy healing sessions with Margaret, I experienced a sudden reduction in pain and after a few sessions, I am pain free. I look forward to working with her for many years to come to increase my ultimate health!


I give up overtime – double time – to come to yoga. Before studying yoga with Margaret, my body was nervous. I couldn’t concentrate. Now my body is limber and calm. My mind is relaxed. Yoga helps my performance at work which is a big plus. I’m still on the go but not as stressed as I was. I’m physically, mentally and emotionally stronger. Working with a class improves learning. It becomes more enjoyable. There’s a sense of community. I’m all about energy. When we start the practice, results are immediate. Energy circulates automatically. I always leave class feeling refreshed and rejuvenated. Yoga has taught me to relax. At first, I couldn’t wait for mediation to end. Now I can sit for a long time and meditate. I enjoy the peaceful feeling that meditation brings. The stretching is wonderful. Yoga limbers everything up. I can feel a difference. Before yoga, I would follow the crowd. Now I know my truth and I walk it with confidence.


As I saw this woman walking towards me at the Theia Light Center booth for the Women’s Show, she caught my eye with her grace, beauty and flowing movements. Little did I know what effect she would have. After introductions and some conversation, I found in her a calmness that permeated my mind. As a practitioner at Theia, I am familiarizing myself with other holistic modalities offered there. I joined Margaret’s Yoga Class series. My first impression with her soon became evident. Margaret’s yoga classes challenge me to relax and let go physically and mentally. The grace and softness of her flowing movements along with a voice that would calm a lion became infectious with each passing class. She gently guides warm ups then then challenges as the class progresses. My body and mind become calm and light. This is the starting point that boosts my personal T’ai Chi Chic practice. I chuckle about the the lack of flexibility some areas in my body have. It all becomes worth it during the final portion or the class as she guides us through a Yoga Nidra Guided Meditation to relax. Margaret’s Yoga Nidra Guided Meditations are invaluable. She guides us through healing meditations for all purposes big and small. Experiencing her wisdom has effected me. I look upon her grace and poise and gather in these qualities to improve myself. Margaret’s yoga and meditation classes have become very enjoyable for me. I continue to look forward to them more and more.


This is THE yoga I have been hungering for since I began practicing over 25 years ago. It manages stress, relaxes deeply and offers profound rejuvenation. Incorporating chant, asana, guided relaxation, yogic breath work, meditation and rest periods to integrate the energy is brilliant!


Margaret’s extensive training and knowledge refresh and renew physically, mentally and emotionally. I am now enjoying a healthy, balanced and energized life thanks to the knowledge gained from her yoga, meditation and Reiki classes.


Through meditation training with Margaret, I have reduced stress and can now manage my migraines. Before I didn’t want to look ahead because I had all this misery. Now I actually look forward to life. I can’t wait to see what the next possibility is that’s coming down the road. It thrills me that something so good for you like meditation releases unknown tensions. You don’t realize all the stress and tension you were holding inside until it starts to go away. Meditation brings so much good stuff into your life and it’s not hard to learn. It’s simple compared to how much it helps you. I could get migraines daily for months. When you have a migraine, you don’t want to get up and do anything because sounds and light bother you. You become numb to migraines. You can’t imagine life without them. They were so frequent that they were just a part of my life. When I had a migraine, instead of being with family and friends, I was in a dark room alone. That’s depressing. The physicians say, “Here, take a pill for this. Take a pill for that.” I rely on them. They just don’t always point you in the right direction. Before I began meditating, I took five pills every night at bedtime: 1 muscle relaxant, 1 melatonin and 3 regular preventative meds. Now I take one pill at bedtime. I was frustrated. The doctors kept giving me meds. I would take a handful of pills just to function. They dulled the pain but the migraines never really went away. It took me a while to get to the point where I began looking for something else. People don’t search for something less invasive that actually works. They get worn down and do whatever the doctor tells them. My physician was prescribing Botox injections. This protocol would have been 30 to 40 shots per treatment around my head every three months. I was so desperate that I was considering it. If doctors would offer other options, you wouldn’t get to the point of despair. When I start getting stressed, I meditate until I am relaxed. I am less stressed at work. When I meditate, I get completely relaxed and at peace. Before I start to study, I use the alternate nostril breathing technique. It helps me retain more of what I am learning. I use the visualization technique before I go to sleep at night to relax and calm me. It has allowed me not to take as much migraine medicine. I’m more relaxed and not as stressed. Relaxation helps with the headaches. This is big stuff especially considering how much medicine I was taking as a preventative. I used to take three pills daily as a preventative measure and three more when I got a migraine (6 pills/day). Now I’m just taking one a day. If I feel a headache coming on, I take one of the three preventative meds. Meditation makes you happier. You enjoy life more. I catch myself smiling more for no reason. Results to date: Happier. More Relaxed. Less Stressed. Fewer Meds (a LOT less). Through meditation, you get rid of all this junk that caused all of your issues. You get rid of things you didn’t realize you had in there. When you’re on the path and making progress, it’s within the realm of possibilities to keep evolving. There’s no limitation. You can continue to grow and evolve in all different ways. Migraines are limiting. Meditation is limitless. Meditation affects all aspects of your life – not just one area. It’s like a snowball. You get rid of the junk so the good stuff is allowed to flourish. I use meditation at the right time. I apply it at work to avoid getting “pull out your hair crazy stressed-out.” I practice meditation at home to maintain the calm and peace that it brings. I intend to get to the point where I don’t even need medication. I will meditate until I’m peaceful all the time no matter what. Before I didn’t want to look ahead because I had all this misery. That’s all I could see in my future was more misery. Now I can’t wait to see what the next possibility is that’s coming down the road. I can see myself living life and not just hiding in a dark room because I can’t stand the sight of light.


After my Reiki session with Margaret, the chronic back pain that is always with me was gone. I was relaxed, energized and calm. I felt very connected with the earth.


In our Reiki Training, Margaret taught us how to use the Reiki energy to heal and revitalize ourselves. Reiki has allowed me to manage the pain from my chemo treatments without drugs.


You are an amazing woman. I knew that instantly. I believe there are good reasons why certain people enter our lives. I thoroughly enjoyed the Yoga Nidra practice yesterday.
