Testimonials

I love this yoga studio and would recommend it to anyone! My partner first started yoga classes here a little over a year ago because he had back problems and thought it might help. His instructor, Regan, was very careful to adapt poses to ensure that he could work the pose while protecting and strengthening his back. He no longer has an active back injury and he loved Iyengar yoga so much that I had to give it a try. I was hooked after one class. Iyengar yoga emphasizes precision in each pose and instructors take care to ensure that students are able to work the poses regardless of the restrictions of their body. For those (like myself) who have tight muscles, students learn to use various props provided by the studio to help them fully access the pose. For instance, if the pose requires you to bend forward and place the palms of your hands on the floor, and your hamstrings or back are too tight to allow you to do that, then you work higher up on blocks so that you can still take the full shape (and gain the full benefit) from the pose. For me there has been a significant improvement in my flexibility, strength, and general well-being. All the instructors are excellent, though we’ve gone mostly to Regan who we both highly recommend. She cares about her students and its obvious in how she teaches. She knows everyone’s names. She knows their bodies and actively seeks to help them improve. This is a really excellent studio!

Yoga North teachers are excellent, each with similar but different ways of helping us position our bodies safely for the full benefit of each pose. Iyengar yoga helps to decrease stress and increase flexibility, strength and balance. Iyengar teachers are well educated to protect students from hurting themselves and to help them actually recover from problems… I am a physician and recommend Iyengar yoga or even specific poses to my patients and friends.

Having a disability that causes my muscles to atrophy, Iyengar yoga has proven to be a perfect alternative therapy for me. The teachers at Yoga North have been ridiculously accommodating, using their creativity to come up with variations on the poses that cater to my limitations while still encouraging progress. The intelligence & depth with which they help me treat my condition is mind blowing. Their focus on the cause rather than the symptom is refreshing. Aside from the obvious physical benefits, it is also a fabulous tool in my quest for mental & emotional integrity. I’d like to thank each and every one of you for your attention and inspiration, you treat me too well!

To me, the whole experience of practicing Yoga and having it become a part of your life, starts with the instructors. The YN instructors are excellent and they are all stellar examples of the huge benefits that Yoga can bring to your life; mind, body and soul. The instructors at Yoga North make you want to practice Yoga and make you want to deepen your practice.

I consider myself very fortunate to have discovered Yoga North eight years ago. My friend brought me to the studio and this was my first experience with the Iyengar style yoga. Not knowing what to expect, I was impressed by the quality of …the practice and knowledge and dedication of the teachers. I decided to give it a try despite my crazy life schedule and enormous lack of flexibility. Now, eight years later, I know that it was one of the best decisions I ever made. I discovered that the beauty of Iyengar yoga is that everyone can do it. With the regular practice the amazing things started to happen to my body and my mind. My physical abilities and life outlook have been changing improving the quality of life all together. The teachers at Yoga North are fantastic; they created a safe, comfortable and inclusive atmosphere where I feel challenged and inspired. Mr. Iyengar said: “Words fail to convey the total value of yoga. It has to be experienced”. Yoga North teachers are doing an outstanding job helping with this experience.
