TESTIMONIALS

 

"An astonishing Yogini and a bright light..." 

-Jill Miller, creator, Yoga Tune Up®

  

"I can't tell you how much the training meant to me; I went to a dinner party that evening and couldn't stop massaging people's tissue! I am so excited to have embarked on the journey, and know that I have only scratched the surface of anatomy and healing power of self care."

- Gillea Allison, Teacher Trainee, Pure/Equinox  TT Dallas

 

"I wanted to let you know that I really enjoyed the YTU weekend.  I used to be a science dork and you have inspired me to 'revisit my dorkasana'.  I can't wait to absorb and apply all this information, and hopefully explore yoga anatomy beyond this training."

- Shilpa Patel, Teacher Trainee, Pure/Equinox TT Dallas

 

"I wanted to express my sincere appreciation for the amount of teaching and sharing you provided the last 3 days.  Your passion for anatomy made the class memorable and enjoyable.  I fell asleep last night with my anatomy book by my bed side....no longer an inaccessible text of a foreign language.  Truly thank you."

- Scott Burnett, Teacher Trainee, Pure/Equinox TT Dallas 


"You are my first yoga teacher and have influenced my practice, giving me the confidence to move forward. 
I have a great respect and love for you as a teacher and a beautiful person. Having been teaching martial arts and training gunfighters most of my life, I have no tolerance for incompetence. So I mean it when I say you are a great teacher. I do not waste my time with anything less!"
-David Manning, Senior Rangemaster
Santa Paula Police Dept.
 

 

"The Santosha on the Osa retreat was one of the best weeks of my life. Every aspect was perfect--meticulously and wisely planned, yet with such a great sense of fun and humor that it never felt "serious." Daily classes, workshops and discussions created a moving and soothing balance of physical and meditative learning that have changed my yoga practice and my everyday life in unexpectedly meaningful ways. I will never be the same person again because of the joy, wisdom and balance these two amazing women shared."

- Donna Warner, Editor in Chief, Metropolitan Home Magazine

 

"Your teaching is truly inspirational. Thank you for all I learned, you managed to make one of the most inactive people around excited to not only exercise but find balance in an otherwise kaleidoscopic world."

- Mark Lapico, Chef de Cuisine, Jean Georges Restaurant

 

"When I began attending Shri's classes just under a year ago, I noticed that the quality of my practice changed; it became more mindful and focused.  I also noticed that I was willing to challenge myself thanks to Shri's ability to create a safe, fun environment. Taking her classes is now an integral part of my life.  I feel lucky to have found such a talented and generous teacher."

-Vika Paranyuk, Metropolitan Museum of Art

 

"You were awesome - I haven't felt this good at 6pm in a long time. Thanks so much!!!  You have a very calming way about your teaching - you made me think more about myself and less about what everyone else was doing - it was the first time in a yoga class I have ever been able to do it."

-Jacob Lief, co-President, Ubuntu Education Fund

 

"Sarah is an incredible yoga instructor! I've done Jivamukti off and on for a few years, but even as a non-newcomer I have learned so much from her and am now practicing Jivamukti in a way that feels both deeper and safer. She's a truly gifted instructor."

-Shannon Carpenter, mediabistro.com

 

"Sarah is an attentive instructor with an innate ability to read her students minds. She makes adjustments kindly and accurately and communicates with her students in a way that's engaging and fun."

-Carmen Scheidel, Director of Education, mediabistro.com

 

"You may not be aware of this, but you are a really really good teacher."

- Andy Eisner

 

"You have been such an inspiring light in my life and over the past two years, you have changed my practice.  Because of you, yoga has become an integral part of my life...something that I can always turn to and something that I will always have.  I have learned something new in EVERY one of your classes; I'm jealous that LA-ers get to hear your words of wisdom every week, but I'm happy that you are having this new experience."

- Jamie Su

 

"There are some experiences in life that while they're happening, and even after they're done,  I get this feeling that the experience will be important in some way later on in my life. This is how I felt about the retreat and the people that I met and spent time with.  Part of what I got out of the retreat is really just a feeling of happiness, inclusion, peace, and above all freedom. Thank you for kindness and generosity, for your openness and playful spirit. I feel so lucky to have you guiding me on this crazy yogic journey I am on."

 - Aliya Sorgen, aliyayoga.com

 

"Thank you so much for your kindness, thoughtfulness and generosity in putting together such a wonderful retreat. The entire experience was memorable for me and I am grateful for having had the opportunity to  participate with such a great group of people." 

-Maureen Caulfield

 

"I went into this really not expecting what I came home with. You bring such a down to earth focus and ease to yoga and the practice that I absolutely connect with - and it's obvious that other people do too. I came out of this trip with a deep understanding of what the practice does for me - how I apply it to my daily life - and how much it does for me personally." 

- Anna Moskovich 

  "Thank you so much for your superb teaching, great sense of humor, compassion, generosity. You're so real and such an urban yogi. Your guidance helped me feel "open to grace" again. That means a lot to me. I'll always remember this time with gratitude. It was an amazing retreat."    

- Pankti Sevak    

 

"Thank you for a wonderful retreat. Just let me know when and where the next one is, and I'll be there."
