a recent 50 mile competitive horseback ride, I was watching people
much younger than I am, popping the ibuprophen! My back used to give
me a lot of trouble on long rides, but now I am so much more comfortable.
I can tell that all the attention to alignment in yoga class has really
improved my posture. Why don't more people try this?"

body felt tight, and my wife was telling me to "STAND UP STRAIGHT",
so I thought I'd give yoga a try. After 6 months of practicing, my
hamstrings are opening up, I feel much more limber, and I am much
more conscious of my posture. Now I'm learning to do the stretches
on my own, and it's a feel good thing for my body and mind. I find
myself experiencing more equanimity as I go through my day."

felt so comfortable in the Shoreham yoga class, even though it was
my first time doing yoga. Each week I looked forward to the class,
knowing that I would get a work out, have a good time, and emerge
feeling relaxed. At first I thought yoga would be something I did
just to keep my body supple for horseback riding, but after awhile
it became clear that my yoga practice would mean so much more than
that. Thanks, Joanna, for the wonderful introduction to yoga!"
a psychotherapist, I know that yoga always helps me to be more compassionate
and present for myself and others. The active postures energize me,
the supportive postures are deeply restful, and the whole practice
keeps me deeply grounded in my heart and body."

I first started going to Joanna's classes it was to get more strong
and fit, but it quickly became a much deeper experience. Through my
yoga practice, I'm learning to be more patient and kind to myself
and others. By breathing into each posture as it unfolds in my body,
I am becoming more accepting of where I am in each moment, on and
off the mat."
