I felt so wrapped in a cocoon of silken love in the environment you generated. You and Carolyn are soul sisters and I am so happy you have each other’s journeys of the soul to share. There is such added sparkle when you both are in the room. Sharing your world, your friends, the students you guide, the families you touch—I loved it all. You are gifted in so many talents of the spirit.”

Nancy, 200-hr YTT Graduate
I listened to one of your yoga playlists recently and found myself taken back to Wolfe Island in the yurt, and to Costa Rica in the Treetops. You are impactful people. If you were food, you would be antioxidant superfood!!”
It feels like I’ve been holding my breath for so long and then I do a class with you and for that hour and a half I can breathe a little easier. You have such a tremendous gift, thank you for sharing it.”
Hasana, Yoga Educator
I know over the years of you offering the Costa Rica retreat you have seen many miracles and life changing events. Please add my experience to the list of miracles. There were so many moments before, during and after the retreat that have allowed me to be where I am today. Today I feel so much love inside for the love that people are giving me and I can actually see it and feel it!! I don’t think I ever did or would even allow myself to acknowledge it. I am in love with me, in love with life, loving my friends and family and love BEING. In my room at the retreat you left me the card that said: “Becoming is effort. Being is no effort” I don’t think I really got that on the first day but I sure get it today!”
Anouschka, Yoga Retreat Participant
I have loved every minute of this training and I am awe-inspired at what
has been accomplished in eight short weeks! You are Masters!”
Julie, 2010 YTT Graduate
My thankfulness is about the love and energy you bring to us and your ability to be the channels of such sacred messages and joyfulness. This enables me to remember who I really am.”
You have blown my mind. The newsletter you sent has really struck a chord with me and was perfect timing. You are both so intuitive. If I could love two people without knowing them well, I could love the two of you.”
I wanted to let you know that four simple words you whispered to me in Costa Rica – ‘let the universe decide’ – have become something of a mantra for me these past 9 months. Through highs and lows, I am both humbled and take comfort in these words.”
Your guidance came at a much needed time in my life. You bring an energy into the space around you that is both easily observed and absorbed. I find it interesting that the 2 major crises I have experienced in my adult life have brought me to your teachings. I offer you an infinite amount of thank you’s because I have been affected in such a monumental way.”
Karen, Yoga Student
I never thought I could have this much fun with my coworkers! The energy and passion you put into the day allowed me to reconnect with my own energy and passion. I feel incredibly refreshed and at peace. Thank you so much”
Linda, Art of Personal Renewal participant
You embody all that yoga gives—love, trust, stamina, vulnerability and more. It is your passion to share these qualities and your desire for everyone to claim them for themselves that I am so grateful for”
Penny, YTT Graduate
This training was a journey of risk and reward, learning and laughter, but most of all...magic.”
