Testimonials for Yoga
"Shelley is an amazingly patient and kind yoga instructor. Her style of teaching, especially with those who have physical challenges, provides for individualized attention. By using whatever props are available to make your body comfortable, she helps guide your body into the position that is best for your body. She teaches you that each body is unique, while coaching you to only go as far as your body takes you that day. She has shown me that anyone can reap the benefits of yoga - stretching and balance - within a very short time. Always with a smile, Shelley is a pleasure to be around."
"I began taking yoga with Shelley Carpenter about 1½ years ago. Other than tapes or DVDs, this was my first experience with yoga. Shelley is an awesome Yoga Instructor. Her knowledge and background as a Physical Therapist definitely lend to her expertise as a Yoga Instructor. I have a longstanding history of back problems and have had multiple surgeries. Yoga has definitely improved my strength and flexibility and has also promoted a sense of 'well being'. I experience much less back discomfort since participating in Shelley's classes. When I miss a yoga class, my body is not quite the same. It truly has made a remarkable difference!"
"I have been attending Shelley's gentle healing yoga classes for over one year. In 1997 I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. With Shelley's help, my balance, breathing and overall outlook on life has improved. She says you should listen to your body. If it doesn't feel right, don't do it. I look forward to our weekly class."
"Shelley is an inspirational teacher who helps each student gain the maximum benefits from each class. She has helped me adapt poses so that I can participate fully in the yoga class even when I'm not able to do the same poses that she suggests for others, and she always makes me feel like part of the group rather than someone who needs special help."
"I've been taking yoga with Shelley Carpenter since 2006. Her classes are a highlight of my week: An opportunity to bring calm and centering to my crazy life. Shelley is especially good with those who have physical challenges. She's brought me a long way from using a cane, rehabing from a hip replacement, to being able to balance in Eagle pose and do a shoulder stand! My yoga practice continues to deepen in meaning, both spiritually and physically. I've recommended Shelley's classes to dozens of people."
"Yoga with Shelley Carpenter has been a wonderful experience. Shelley's gentle calm spirit united with the practice of yoga has brought peace and balance to my hectic and fast paced schedule."
