What People Say

I have back and neck issues and was looking for a program that would compliment the treatments I was receiving. As a result of Jennifer’s workshop, I now realize how important breath control is to reducing pain and muscle tension. As the workshop progressed, I was more relaxed and was totally pain free for the rest of the day. I use many of the techniques Jennifer demonstrated daily and feel that my progress has been accelerated as a result of this posture workshop and this is allowing me to more fully participate in daily activities. - DW, West Kootenays
Your positive and open attitude creates a warm and accepting atmosphere at yoga classes. This means no matter what our level of ability or experience we feel welcome. - R.A., Cochrane, Alberta
I really like the spunky vibe you mesh into your practice. You make me smile-love the endorphins. - K.D., Water Valley, Alberta
I’ve been suffering with rotator cuff and psoas issues. Through Jennifer’s workshop I learned that I should keep the back of my neck elongated and my shoulders back while walking. I learned not to hold my breath and how to breath deeply while holding a pose. Mostly I’ve learned to listen to what my body is telling me. I always feel great after one of your classes. My body feels loose and flowy. - Susan, The Kootenays, BC
I only do Jennifer's videos because I love her way of she modifies for whatever issues a person may have. I feel relaxed and healthy when I do yoga at home with Jennifer. - Cathy Bogle, The Kootenays, BC
"The evidence is in. I went to the Dr. today to get some test results....I have reduced all the right things and increased the HDL. Nothing has changed for me - same food, etc. The only thing that is different is walking and yoga and my Dr. considers that to account for the difference in results. No pills for me!" - Robin E., Grand Forks, BC
I’m really enjoying Yin yoga video. Its just me and my body. I like the quiet time by myself. - Laurie Kambeitz, Grand Forks, BC
I'm recovering from a fractured ankle and although there is weight-bearing in the yoga poses it is deliberate and controlled. My a-ha moment was realizing that yoga does not need to be feared!! I left each class feeling energetic and stretched and looking forward to the next session. I definitely noticed a difference in each area we concentrated on. - Lori Peterson, B.C.
In Jennifer's Gentle Yoga I've had lots of ahahs: knowledge of my body, its parts, and the role they why stand up straight and how to align my knees. I felt mentally calm and happy to be so good to my body. - Verdell, B.C.
I think the breathing makes you focus on your body and gets your brain also focusing on your body. I use the deep breathing in a lot of things these days, so much so that it is becoming somewhat automatic. And I can feel it waaaay down deep in the bottom of my lungs which feel much happier. The breathing has opened my eyes to a lot of things. - Colleen Dolman, Grand Forks, BC
I just listened to you and Ashley's talk, following allowing with your exercises, I can't tell you how amazing and relaxed it made me feel. I felt so relaxed, feeling intensely relaxed sensations through my body only felt before during acupuncture or orgasm. I felt them starting at the soles of my feet and slowly reaching up my legs towards my heart. I felt it radiating across my chest and entire abdomen. And with each breath the sensation grew stronger and steadier. It's been about 20 minutes and my body is shaking. I am amazed at how effective just breathing can be and I thank you so much for sharing your knowledge. - Sean Redondo, San Diego, CA
