"I am very much a type-A, stressful person and my job doesn't lend toward peace of mind. I came back to yoga after a 2 year absence to realize I had forgotten the peace of mind the practice brings. I enjoy physical challenge, but for me the spiritual and physical benefits are exponential."

~Joe O'Donnell in Utkatasana at Yoga House

For me yoga reaches far beyond the physical poses and allows me to experience life more awake, and to see the light in others as well. I love teaching yoga because there is nothing more rewarding than being a part of someone's transformation."

"When I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia two years ago, I decided to try yoga as a holistic approach to heal my body. Yoga has helped to strengthen the areas of my body where I had previously felt the most pain and weakness; now I feel a sense of relief and control. In the beginning it was a struggle, but with time and dedication and with pose modifications, I began to feel the benefits of yoga and fell in love with it. I find myself craving the next class."

~Rosanna Boyer in Vrksasana at Yoga House

"Any practicing Yogi/Yogini would usually have a meditation practice also. This helps us to manage the ever changing, constantly chattering mind which creates tension and prevents us from being focused. 
Meditation can be practiced for many reasons: relaxation of the mind and body; blood pressure and cardiovascular health; developing concentration or one pointed-ness of the mind; preparing the spiritual seeker for spiritual enlightenment; overcoming insomnia; a mind that is free from negative thoughts; and self-discipline. The practice of meditation is not easy; however, with sustained practice it becomes easier and the benefits are multifaceted."

~Swamini Ramananda in Sukhasana at Yoga House

"The Vinyasa quality of "moving mediation," along with daily seated meditation, allows me to center myself when my world feels out of balance and lacking in stillness. Yoga has opened my eyes to see the person within, who I really am. My practice helped me find myself at a time when I felt lost."

~Gina Cerbone Virabhadrasana B at Yoga House.

"Yoga has given me my inner life back. It allows me to re-enter my Quiet Room. It gives me the ability to breath and grow the inner light within me while enjoying everyone's own ability to enjoy themselves. Peace and love to all. Namaste!"

"You are never too old to start."

~Jan Blom in Arda Adho Mukha Vrksasana at Yoga House

"Yoga is such an awesome experience. If you haven't started, then get to it my friends! Yoga is an ancient art which helps us to create balance in our bodies and find awareness in our breath. This leads to maintaining balance in all aspects of daily life. Yoga teaches you how to find peace when there is a lot of noise going on around you. In turn, your day at work or school becomes more bearable. Yoga is not just for women; if you think that, then think again! Connecting with your body and breath will propel you to new heights of athletic accomplishments and health for all people. I started having more control of my breath and found I wasn't even getting tired during strenuous exercises while training. So if you haven't started, then you should have started yesterday. Thank you Yoga House."

~Joel Raffaeli in Vasisthasana at Yoga House

Madalyn & Pyper in virabhadrasana B at Yoga House.

"Yoga gets my mind off school and I feel it will improve my focus when I'm playing softball - especially when I'm up to bat. Laying in savasana at the end, I felt powerful, like I could do anything. I believe yoga is a way of life."

~Madalyn Drozal 

"I think people should do yoga because it makes you feel more confident and it's soothing. Its very calming and stress relieving. And it's fun. I heart yoga. I plan on continuing to do yoga throughout my lifetime."
~Pyper Drozal 

"What does yoga means to me? For me yoga is a balance between ease and effort. As I move through my practice parts of me are working hard and yet there are are parts of me softening, parts that don't need to be as involved at any given moment. Then the challenge comes of taking that off the mat and into real life. Balancing ease and effort, yin and yang throughout my daily life as best as I can. What I like most about teaching is actually teaching the previous philosophy. Yes, you can work hard, you can sweat but not every muscle in your body needs to be working so hard at the same time. Mentally yoga can be frustrating and certain poses may seem illusive. Even meditation can seem impossible. But learning to soften the mind, quiet down the chatter & let it go. Sthira and sukum, ease and effort."

~Jamie Sullivan in Urdva Mukasvanasana at Yoga House.

"Yoga keeps my body feeling good through the physical and emotional demands of pregnancy. The practice allows me to slow down and provides a time to bond with my baby and connect with my body in preparation for birth and the journey of motherhood."

~Lisa Bush in Ustrasana variation at Yoga House.

"As a retired person, yoga reminds me to find time for myself after years of working a full time job. Through the practice I am able to get in touch with my body again; to become more limber and generally feel better all around."

~Margie Heitman in Baddha Konasana at Yoga House.

"I began attending yoga to work on my self care while completing Grad School. I am loving every second of it! it has really been helping me to relax and look inward. I love you Yoga House and feel so at home here."
