Having worked in the field of public health, I find that yoga is the best and most affordable public health available. The teachers and classes at Bhava are an incredible anchor to deepening the connection and health on this planet.

While I have become more flexible through my practice, one of the most positive changes for me is greater balance in my mental and emotional outlook.  No easy feat for a cynic and skeptic!  Yoga has also given me integrated physical strength not achieved through other athletic endeavors. Using the alignment principles of Anusara Yoga is beneficial, even in mundane situations such as standing in line at a museum.

Your studio has a heart and soul. I am touched.

OMG. I had the best run today!  12 miles, no pain in my s-I joint!  So thrilled. THANKS! I will keep doing the exercises. 
- Lara Patriquin

Thank you for your professional and thorough approach to my knee pain problem.  The results are beyond dramatic, and the changes in my sense of my body, my stance and my overall posture are equally dramatic.  Though I still have to be mindful, the symptoms that occur when I’m NOT working in a pose properly are almost immediate now that I am so much more aware.  Because I now know what to do, it only takes a moment to correct the problem and the symptoms go away immediately. 
- Barbara Boulanger

I wanted to let you know how grateful I am for my yoga practice and Bhava Yoga Studio.  As you know, in July 2006 I suffered from two herniated discs in my neck.  I was in excruciating pain and the medical community didn’t have any solutions other than drugs.  A friend suggested I see you for a private yoga therapy session.  I was skeptical but desperate.  During two private sessions you taught me some simple exercises to relieve my pain and strengthen my muscles.  After a few weeks doing these exercises on my own I had gained enough strength and flexibility to begin taking the fundamentals classes.  I know that my neck would have healed eventually on its own but without yoga I believe it would have taken longer and I wouldn’t have learned the things I needed to do to avoid the chronic neck and shoulder pain I had been experiencing for years.  Bhava Yoga Studio and its instructors saved me when I was in severe pain.  My practice not only helps relieve aches and stiffness from sitting at a desk all day, but also keeps my life sane!

The Immersion was simply wonderful. While I expected the improvements in my physical practice, I had no idea how much my emotional and spiritual understanding would grow.  I’ve also been amazed at how increased physical strength has translated into increased inner/emotional strength.  Bea is a wonderful person to guide you on that journey.  She is knowledgeable, loving, fun, and inspiring teacher. 
- Sandra Ortsman

The Immersion is therapeutic for the mind, body and spirit–a holistic approach.  I have learned so much about myself during this time and it was amazing to have the support of the community.  Connecting with people on the same path is a necessary part of spiritual growth and something I was lacking before the Immersion.  I couldn’t have spent my time and money on anything better. 
- Nora Bacon

Yoga saved my life—twice.  Bea’s teaching is so incredibly heartfelt that it’s difficult to bring anything other than 100% to her classes.  The past six months have been about so much more than refining my asana practice. I am learning how to better trust myself, how to let the world around me work for me and how to see the highest in every person and thing. Thank You!

That handstand made me feel like a superstar!  Thanks for supporting me in busting through my fear and all sorts of stories I was telling myself about things I would never be able to do.  The weekend retreat at Sunrise Springs was life changing for me. 
- Sarah Couch

My experience at Haramara was one of pure happiness.  The incredible ocean views, the vibrant food, the full-on Anusara practice and skillful instruction, plus the magic and beauty of Haramara gave me a spontaneous presence of warmth and joy. The radiance of the group and the practice allowed me the space that I had been craving–to go deeper and bigger. 
- Carolina Mead

Thanks again for the weekend.  I hope you chose to do another retreat in T or C…the place rocks!  I am inspired to pay close attention to any small movements, openings in my poses and, heck, in life…as I approach my 40′s… but, besides that, I also understand that the magic is really in the detail and I continue to learn how to notice and appreciate when small things happen!  I also enjoyed the pranayama where we paused before and after the breath…I think that is where the magic lives as well!
