Testimonials

“Thank you for the rhythm of your class. I really enjoyed it. You are calming and I especially like the way you end the sessions.  I thought about it on the drive home as well and will try to continue this throughout the day.  The level you taught today was perfect for me.  It was challenging enough and you offered good alternatives.” C.K.

“I enjoyed the yoga class immensely and will look forward to attending as often as possible. I think you are a great teacher and one who does a fine job of explaining advantages of each pose and accepting/ accommodating ability/ inability levels of all your students. I felt far better after class than beforehand.” T.M.

“You give such great individual attention to people. It’s obvious you care about them and that’s so important, because everybody can find a decent teacher that offers a good class but you add that extra touch which is clearly what brings people back.” T.T.

“Jill planned creative age-appropriate activities for each session with a different theme each time.  She is an enthusiastic instructor who found a variety of ways to engage each child in the class, including those children who were reluctant to participate. We greatly enjoyed the Yoga classes and our preschoolers made many happy memories with Jill!” D.L.

“I just got off the phone with a friend and was telling her how much I look forward to Mondays with you!  I am really enjoying how yoga works all aspects of my muscles and flexibility. Thanks again! You are so good at what you are doing and really know how to make each individual feel great about themselves.  It is truly a spiritual calling for you.”

Your class was a great fit for both and I hope to continue when and however I can. The challenge level was just what I needed and I definitely feel the desire to improve. What else could you want from a class?”  H.V.

“I tried Yoga five years ago to help me deal with a difficult family situation and it did not appeal to me then. Not so much the yoga, more my state of mind, was the reason. A couple of years ago, I joined a health club, but it was always busy when I could come in. Last year I had a couple of minor muscle related injuries that made me want to do something to prevent getting stiff and sore in old age. Research quickly let me to Yoga. A friend recommended you and from what she said it sounded like the kind of yoga that I was looking for. I like the pace and feel that this yoga has which is a mental and physical work out.  I am very satisfied with the classes and the way you teach them.” B.S.

“I loved our practice on Saturday.  I particularly liked thinking about precision and not perfection along with foundation. Thank you for the info you sent about my questions about my hip. You were spot on and I will work on the suggestions! You are so thoughtful and dear, and I am so happy that our paths have crossed. You enrich my life. Thank you.” S.A.

“I love your Yoga classes. You asked in a word how yoga makes me feel and many times you ask at the end of class. I feel simple pure gratitude. It doesn’t make much sense as it seems like hell sometimes in life but it’s just gratitude without reason for having this life and this human body. Despite all the difficulties, it is a simple feeling and really doesn’t need much explaining.” J.B.
