What Our Students Are Saying...
My back was killing me from gardening and caring for my baby. Then I tried yoga and within weeks my back was healed. I was thrilled to be able to keep doing the things I loved; gardening and holding my young child without pain. Years later I still do yoga because I feel stronger, grounded and more centered. My favorite pose is handstand because it releases my stress and tension right away. Yoga is a nurturing refuge for me. It reminds me to take good care of myself and to savour every bite of life. ~ Pam Hartwell
I went through a rough patch after a relationship breakup and my mother passing away. There was a lot of emotional pain. After 12 years of intensive martial arts I thought I was a strong person but after coming to Yoga Mountain to stretch a little, I discovered there were so many ways in my body that I felt weak and old. I started to coming to class twice a week along with some private sessions. After 6 months, I was absolutely shocked at how strong I began to feel and look both inside and out. I was finally able to handle my life. Many life long symptoms I had simply disappeared. Thank you Sienna for your extraordinary dedication and articulation in your teaching. ~Elijah Nisenboim
Yoga makes me feel like a kid again! Before yoga I felt tired and old but now that I practice yoga I smile more. Especially when I do handstand I feel powerful and free. I remember doing handstand as a child every day after lunch and it was always so much fun-- now I am doing it at this age! Wow, it amazes me at how strong I am. ~Jen Jones
