"I just wanted to tell you how glad I am that I came back to yoga with you at the Shalom Center.

   I tried another place because it was closer and I thought that would be more convenient.  But I didn’t take into consideration the factors of the setting at the Shalom Center and you as the instructor. 

   When I walked into the Shalom Center I immediately felt the peacefulness flowing around me.  This setting, plus your calm, quiet voice and your choice of music sets the tone for a very relaxing and restorative yoga class.  I like that you work on core strength and balance in a simple way without a lot of extra props to distract me from my focus.

   I also love the artwork in the Shalom Center and the beautiful trees in all their seasonal glory outside the window.  They make a great focal point.  This environment adds an extra dimension to your yoga class."  

    Thanks so much,
