what our yogis say
“I enjoyed learning the basics and all the poses correctly. Love the energy from you also and the attention. Nicole R. Kudos to Yoga Essentials for Beginners! Hip pain is completely gone! My increased flexibility has greatly reduced my lower back pain and I have recommended yoga to my husband for his back.
“We took the Yoga Essentials for Beginners workshop and it was a wonderful experience! The teacher is a great instructor and really tailored the class to our abilities and speeds. It was very informative and fun! We will definitely be returning.”
“I was excited but intimidated to go to a yoga class, however, I was welcomed and quickly put at ease. The teacher was encouraging and helpful by showing a variety of ways to participate based on skill level. Thank you for being so inclusive, accepting, and “meeting me where I am!”
“In just 4 weeks I learned how to savor the breath in my lungs, the air on my skin, and the stretching and opening of my heart and hips. I especially loved how I’m finally at 53 years old, learning how to align my mind, body and spirt! I could feel the positive, welcoming and non- judgmental energy the minute I walked through the door! I am incredibly grateful for the moments I experienced at Peace through Yoga.”
“Just completed the beginner workshop and love it! I am hooked. Excited to take more classes.”
