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.

Nydia loves what she does. She cares so much about each person in the class, not just for today, but to help us through aging healthily.  Not only do my muscles feel better, she always puts me in a good mood.

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.

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!

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

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.

My Rheumatologist recommended yoga with Nydia as a form of physical therapy  for a neuromuscular condition.  Nydia guided the Gentle Therapeutic Yoga class, comprised of yoga instructors to beginners, in a way that felt personal.  I was able to do the movements (all on the floor) and was not tired or hurting so I mentioned that the intent was for me to build strength.  Nydia explained the movements that build strength and that I would probably be a little sore the next day.  She was correct but I still felt good.  A sense of achievement.  Finally physical therapy that does not hurt nor focus on my limitations but my overall well being.  I know I will have neuromuscular challenges in the future but I feel I have a method to manage my quality of life now. Thank you Nydia for dispelling what I thought I knew about yoga and introducing me to lifetime change.

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.

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:)
