I love attending Nydia’s Gentle Therapeutic Yoga class! It takes place in a warm, highly encouraging, yet non-competitive environment, which is nurtured by Nydia’s expert, very generous, non-judgmental teaching.

While I have practiced yoga for nearly 25 years, Nydia has been my best teacher. Her classes are deeply informed by her personal depth of training with yoga masters both here in the states & around the world. Combining that training with her professional base as a Physical Therapist has enriched my own practice over the past 10 years.  I look forward to going to class several times a week & feel stronger as a result.

What an amazing 75 minutes, breathing, stretching, balancing and Oming. She is the master of explaining how to get the most out of the practice. What a blessing!

I have gone to yoga with Nydia for many years, but now I am going with a different focus. I recently had a hip replacement, and I know that she will modify the practice for me so that I can get the benefits of the yoga practice and rehab my hip without doing anything that would harm my recovery. Bottom line is that I trust her, and that means everything to me.

It is a dream come true when your yoga teacher is a doctor of physical therapy.  Who could ask for anything more?  Nydia pays attention to every detail of your body while you are in a posture.   She can offer subtle cues that have tremendous impact.     She has helped me enjoy postures that I thought I would never be able to do again because of a cervical condition.  Nydia’s classes are challenging and fun.  Her approach is unique.  She is a delightful individual.  Nydia’s Yoga Therapy is San Antonio’s hidden gem.

Exactly what I needed!  Some yoga classes seem to rush thru the positions and I don’t feel like I really got the benefit of the stretches.  This class allows enough time to fully experience each position while working at your own level. Nydia constantly coaches and assists each person.  Perfect

Nydia is awesome and has been an amazing resource in my life!  I’ve attended her classes regularly for 2 years and results have been tremendous.  I have a peripheral neuropathy (feet are numb) which was detrimental to my balance, to the point where she started me leaning against the wall in standing postures…I haven’t had to lean against the wall for a long time!  My strength, dexterity and mobility are progressing in spite of the neuropathy!  Nydia class is part of my regular routine…a necessity in my life!

 I attended my first class with Nydia yesterday in order to expand ways to help my massage clients. Nydia offered lots of simple and effective ways I can incorporate the basics of yoga and breathing to help clients achieve greater healing with their self care. I feel it was some of the best CE money I’ve spent in quite a while. I left with a renewed spirit of healing. Can’t wait to go back and learn more! Nydia and her husband’s hospitality were AMAZING! Thank you for opening not just your studio but your home to my learning experience.

Nydia provides almost private instruction focused on the needs of each student. I had a recurring muscular pain that almost went away with the exercises and stretches that she recommended during class. She will talk through long poses so that you do not feel the discomfort!

Wonderful experience.  I sought out Nydia for help after experiencing tremendous pain following a group yoga class elsewhere. Nydia spent extra time with me to address the difficulties and pain I was having and I was able to complete a yoga class without pain for the first time in weeks.  I’m so glad I reached out to Nydia.

Nydia was great! I basically had a private session since no one else showed up today. She was warm and welcoming and super intuitive in instruction. I’m not knowledgeable in yoga but know this was a great welcoming space. Y’all should definitely try it out.
