Over the years I’ve heard so many amazing stories of renewal. Hearing how Yoga helps you encourages me to evolve as a teacher, while helping others considering Yoga, to come try a class.  Drop me a line if you’d like to share what class means to you.


I appreciate your classes so much. They’ve become a central – and eagerly anticipated – part of my week. Thank you! -C

It was such a pleasure taking your class at Vegetarian Summerfest, I meant it when I said that your class was the best part of the event for me. I took my first yoga class four weeks ago and though I’ve always been active, mainly dancing samba, I was never engaged in a physical activity that really made me look inwards. Your class took that to another level. I wish I lived in Boston!  -J

Your voice is so soothing, calming, just listening to you is like getting a massage. -J
