Sherry and Justine, you have a distinct way of loving people through your programs. Every conversation or email throughout the process provided encouragement and affirmation that I was on the right path. I can see why you are successful— you care so very much. I’m honored to be a new member in your special sangha and look forward to the day when I’ll get to meet each of you in person and give you a great big hug. 🙂

I’m a new Yoga Vista student and I’m loving the ease of working at my pace. The best part is the comprehensive immersion into Gentle and chair yoga in such a way that I feel like I’m really a part of the class. The student participation and their sharing their experiences in the course information is very helpful to me. Thank you!

I am really enjoying the course. I was an elementary school teacher and I have attended many yoga training where there is not even a manual. I am impressed with the amount of thought, effort and pedagogy that has gone into the online chair yoga program.
