I truly was lost before I came [to your class], and though I must take credit for my own change—still, it was only with the information and insightfulness that you provided that I was able to make that change. — Past Participant
I took your workshop three weeks ago at Integral Yoga. I wanted to let you know that I religiously did all the exercises you gave us and for the first two weeks, I felt so much calmer and relaxed and happier. I learned how to breathe properly, and my husband was amazed at the difference it made. I think my daughter felt it, too. We get along so much better since I don’t get so irritable anymore. And some days I don’t feel perfect but still much better than before I started doing this routine. Thank you very much for sharing your wisdom and experience with me. — Angela
Official time for check-in: 4 pm and check-out: 2 pm
