We love it when people let us know what they think & we're sharing some with you ...

My partner and I experienced your Beginners Yoga program and loved it - so thank you for that, and for showing us a yoga style that really made sense for both of us. Yoga in Daily Life feels more "genuine" for lack of a better term then a few other groups I've tried, and we both got a lot out of it.

I didn't get a chance to say goodbye to you both before I headed overseas on my big adventure.
Just a quick note to thank you for providing a wonderful "home" for me in my yoga journey.
It has certainly had a big impact on my health and general well-being and I am very grateful for this.
In addition your commitment to a philosophy and love and well being has been a great inspiration to me personally and I really appreciate how that has played out in being made to feel welcome and loved at your centre.

Thank you again for organising what was probably the most amazing retreat I have had the privilege of attending. The Diversity and genuineness of everyone attending, the range of  backgrounds and experience seem to come together as a Divine expression of what is best in humanity !!

Thanks for a great session today! The workshop on 'Managing Moods & Energy' was a fantastic. It was a terrific combination of hands on cooking and information, complimented by a considered yoga session that inspired further home practice. I'll definitely be keeping my eye out for future workshops.

I would like to expressed my thank you to every one involved in the retreat weekend. I had a wonderful time, the food were delicious, every meal were delicious from the Breakfast to lunch to Dinner. The walking trail was good an hour for each day after the Breakfast. the Yoga program class were good. Meditation class was hard but Swami give us a good lesson for the Meditation class and Yoga class. I loved it. Most of all is the people,  was surrounding with a bunch of friendly people sharing their experience in the journey of oversea trip.

Thanks for your amazing classes!

I just wanted to let you know what an impact my weekly yoga sessions have had on me.
I have always suffered from terrible tension headaches, often resulting in a dead arm when I get really bad! For a while I was going for remedial massage every 3 weeks to manage this and by the middle of week 2 my headaches were back and my arms were aching. I was told I really should do yoga and that's when I came to your 6 week introductory course.
I've done yoga before but it's never really clicked - yours does!
It dawned on me recently how much it helps - I missed a few weeks as I was busy and realised that I reached for the nurofen for headaches for the first time in 18 months!
I love my Saturday classes and will do my best to prioritise them!
Thanks again, Jen Miller 26.5.16

Massive gratitude for what you provide the yoga community - thanks for the supportive space throughout the year.
Bek. Tomarchio 15.12.15 

Thank you for welcoming me into the Yoga in Daily Life community - it was truly the branch that lifted me from the raging torrents when I first started coming to class and became part of my new rhythm once I learned how to swim across the current. It is thanks to beautiful teachers like you that I have fallen more & more in love with yoga, especially the other arms, not just asana practice.

Thank you kindly for providing me with such a positive, wholesome and comforting space this year. I feel very lucky to have stumbled across your community studio. Bron. 10.12.15


Before I leave ... Thank You for introducing me to the gift that is Yoga - it is something that I know that I will continue to explore & one day hope to teach, and inspire others, as you have inspired me.
Namaste & best wishes, Winnie. 25.10.16

Thanku for being so awesome, I have loved yoga in a whole new way since coming to you. Kate C. 14.12.16
