Testimonials and Client Reviews
"Shannon, you have such a lovely, calm and encouraging manner/presence. I am able to fully participate physically but really love how you modify the movement for different physical ability. It was such a welcome and accepting atmosphere. I forgot my inhibitions about appearing on camera!"
"First time since having ME I felt relaxed, at ease and rested in my body, very different experience. It definitely shows you have adapted the class for ME patients!"
"I feel like this is more than yoga, it’s a chance to build a tribe of CFS/ME people. We’re isolated alone as individuals but, as a group, there’s strength and connection."
"Loved it. Can’t wait to try more. Thank you for doing this type of Yoga. I just can’t seem to motivate myself to do it on my own so I can absolutely use this. :)"
"The connection to others struggling with similar conditions and being able to all be at the same or similar level of yoga practice"
"Love the compassion and expertise of the instructor and the chance to practice yoga with others with ME (I didn't see any Lululemon nor contortionists ;-) )"
"Feeling like my needs as an ME patient were understood and that I was free to set my own boundaries for what was safe for me. Not feeling pushed or pressured to do anything a particular way -- I really appreciated being reminded of this a few times throughout the class, as it is so different from the approach in traditional yoga studios, which is to push yourself. I also loved what you said towards the end of class - something about that our disabled bodies have value, that we are valuable and appreciated. it really calmed my body and made me feel safe."
"I am happy to be participating in a yoga that's attainable."
"Just my gratitude for your having offered this class, and my continued awe at your developing a program that will work for other chronic illness sufferers. I also love that you're open for feedback to a community of like-minded, like-bodied people & that you are clearly open to developing your program to suit people's needs - its a pretty amazing example of community coming together, and I'm very thankful to be involved."
"Thank you so much for doing these. I look forward to them every week."
"I loved that I was able to do this class from bed, and that I felt like I had support and encouragement to do so, particularly on a bad day. Being able to move a little, and to feel good about myself for a moment, was wonderful. And I LOVED the guided meditation. :)"
"It was just the right level of yoga for ME and brought together PwME which made it a group of people who are all in the same battle which is big for an illness that’s so isolating. It was yoga and peer support blended."
"The community and getting some structure to set a routine. Thank you and I really like your presentation and kind heart."
"Options given to stand, sit or lay on floor I enjoyed it all! I enjoy the connection to others & with myself"
"I really appreciate the class. You’re doing a great job in pacing the exercises and balancing everyone’s needs."
"Safe, community. It gives me hope that yoga can be part of my life again."
