Letter from a student:

"Another true gift and talent is in your ability to modify each move for every student. You have done an amazing job teaching me adaptation skills for my body and yet still push to make sure that I am maximizing each movement as far as I am able. I so admire the way you sweep through the room, watching every student every minute and yet keep everyone involved at a variety of levels of difficulty. You do it so effortlessly. What a gift you have!" - Larry

Terry Connell
 

 I came to yoga like most people do - looking for help to manage the stress in my life. It worked. I have had students come up to me after class and say, they've decreased their blood pressure medication since starting yoga, they are sleeping better, or  have more sustained energy through the day. That's why I practice yoga, and that's why I teach it.
