From past participants
What a great class! At age 40, I am just now discovering my “inner jock.” I would never call myself an athlete after reading the description and the title of the class, I was a little nervous about attending, but you gave me a new image of an athlete that is healthy, balanced, focused and who listens to their body. You brought yoga to my level, made it accessible, and gave me a great base to build on. —Leigh F.
The program was fantastic! It will help me on the tennis court, in my yoga classes here at home, and even at my desk. The careful descriptions of the poses was something I really needed the group discussions you led were terrific. The different activities made each day exciting and unexpected. —Jeanne S.
I now have a much more positive feeling about yoga and its likely benefits for me. —Bob F.
