Comments from students:

“I have faith, entering the class each week, that you will be there with creativity, a surprise or two, good humour, and poetry. That is a wonderful thing to be able to rely on, week after week, in this crazy world. So I rarely ever have to debate whether or not to go to class, it’s just a given… I just go, trusting.” – Bill

“What a spectacular day. It was by far the best yoga workshop I have ever attended. I feel very blessed to have been able to attend.”- Kassandra

“Personally, it was my first time experiencing such a deep spiritual and emotional yoga workshop. I feel blessed that I was directed your way. I did not know what to expect out of the workshop but by the end, I had tears in my eyes. I was glad all those folks were open to sharing their love with me as well. It was so touching.” – Stephanie

“I want to relay to you how much I enjoyed the work shop this afternoon. It truly was the most beautiful and heartfelt five hours that I have experienced . Such positive energy and love you exude. I can’t believe how in five hours 25 people , some total strangers, became so connected. The whole day was radiant. I would love to attend more retreats put on by you. Thank you ,thank you ,thank you.” – Betty
