“After my first yoga session, I was able to go to sleep without my sleep aid medication.” Spring 2007. Helen, Beginners Yoga participant, Nederland, Texas
“I was able to do all of the poses, with a few modifications, when I took your ‘back yoga’ class. My back feels so good afterwards.” Spring 2009. Mildred, a Yoga class participant from the YMCA Port Arthur, Texas
“Gail is one of the most pleasant persons I have ever met. I was excited about my private lessons but anxious about my performance. I work out strenuously on most days of the week. I had neglected flexibility which I know is one of the three important kinds of fitness training that also include aerobics and strength training. She set me at ease and helped me make constant adjustments that would help me improve. Before we even started she conducted a detailed interview regarding my health and goals. All lessons were individualized and well planned. Nothing was “canned” or repetitive. I walked away from every lesson with some printed materials to help me in my yoga practice.
I continue to try to make any of Gail’s group classes and plan some more private lessons in the near future. As a nurse practitioner, I am familiar with many valid studies conducted by western medical centers that point up the substantial benefits of yoga as both a replacement and assistance with medication. I highly recommend Gail as a wonderful ambassador and instructor for yoga.
By the way I wore my heart rate monitor during many of the sessions and was surprised at the heart rate elevation during parts of the lesson.” May 2010.Norma, Private Yoga student, Beaumont, Texas
