WHAT MY YOGA STUDENTS SAY
about yoga, meditation, and mindfulness practices
Asana Practice (the poses)
Dwenna knows when to help you make adjustments to get the most out of any pose and you really are able to feel a difference in your body through her adjustments. Dwenna is very motivating during class and encourages you to feel powerful and strong in all your poses and have confidence in yourself.
-Natalie L., collegiate swimmer
I've had some amazing yoga teachers and have high standards. Dwenna was amazing and absolutely did not disappoint. ....Dwenna set me up in a supported resting pose at the beginning of the practice because I had tightness in my chest and within a few minutes I was feeling more relaxed and ready for the rest of the practice...
-Lyndsey M., marketing exec. and long distance runner
It was the best part of my week. I was able to improve my flexibility, which improved my health as a distance runner. More importantly, my ability to focus and stay positive during long runs got better after a few sessions with Dwenna.
-Andrew M., teacher and marathon runner
Practice with her was very refreshing because she created an atmosphere that was extremely welcoming and relaxing....Sessions with Dwenna are really beneficial because it’s clear that she knows exactly what she’s doing and is able to explain everything in ways that are easy to understand.
-Courtney R., college student, soccer player
...Dwenna always knew how each technique would benefit me and my baby. Dwenna not only helped me with different strengthening and stretching techniques to prepare my body for labor, but she also helped me work on breathing and focusing techniques to prepare me mentally for labor. Dwenna is a highly skilled and gifted instructor. Even though I had very little yoga experience, she was able to adapt to my skill level and make me feel comfortable and empowered.
-Rebecca K., teacher, mother
meditation and mindfulness
Those lessons have helped my anxiety, posture, and sleeping habits. Struggling with stress and other mental/physical issues can take a real toll, and learning how to meditate is a way to alleviate that toll.
-Jane C., college student
After a session with Dwenna Nelson, I was not only able to work through my problems emotionally, but my sleep improved.....Her knowledge of yoga and meditation is remarkable, but it is her knowledge of people that really makes the experience.
