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 recommend this yoga sanctuary for everyone!! Nydia is absolutely amazing and is truly unique. I appreciate each time I attend a class I am never encouraged to do anything beyond the point of discomfort.

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.

 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 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.

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.

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.

This is my first experience at yoga. I was recommended by my doctor and I must say Nydia has a gift to conduct these classes. She has an awesome personality and makes you feel comfortable through the entire class. the environment is serene and that allows you to concentrate and feel at ease. I believe she can help restore the balance my body and mind needs. I can’t wait to continue my classes with her and embrace the changes of my mind and body that is so required. I definitely recommend taking her classes especially for first timers. Thank you Nydia:)

Every chance I get, I always try to encourage people to seek out Nydia. I started my practice with her years ago and stopped so I could be a caregiver. I’m back again to give to myself. She cares deeply about what she does and her passion for yoga, a healthy spirit and mind is contagious. She uses yoga as physical therapy and modifies movements specific to each persons needs. I’ve been around a lot of “coaches” in my lifetime but never one who’s words and teachings always echoed in my head and heart to ,literally, not only change my body and spirit but my life. For that, I will always be grateful.

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
