What Students Are Saying About Our Courses

I learned helpful modifications for yoga poses. It felt like a safe space for people in larger bodies and our needs were met and understood. This course was a great introduction to The Branches yoga studio and I will be returning!

Re: Yoga for Round Bodies

Karina L

I learned how important feet and ankles are for balance, and I improved a lot. I went cross-country skiing last weekend, and felt I had better control and stability than I've had for years, and I think it is all about strengthening my feet and ankles and hips. I also really liked that there were many suggestions every week on how to build in these exercises into daily life. Linda is experienced at giving instructions... the clear verbal instructions were very important.

Re: Yoga for Dynamic Aging

Arli K

I gained a way to calm "The Sunday Nights." I would recommend this course to others. It was very relaxing, it made me take time to rejuvenate and calm myself before another busy week.

Re: Deep Relaxation: Stretching & Restorative Yoga

Jenn

I learned the importance of mobility and range of motion for my joints, strength, and yoga practice. I gained lots of new exercises to incorporate into my fitness schedule. I would absolutely recommend this course to others. Mobility seems to be an undervalued form of fitness and is very important.

Re: Beyond Flexbility: Upper Body Mobility

Tasha

I have taken many classes with Nadine, and I've learned at least one thing from each one, eg. acceptance of where I am at, physically and mentally, at that particular time. As an experienced teacher, Nadine is an excellent instructor, always encouraging us to trust our own reactions, while introducing elements that are new and challenging along with others that are familiar and comforting.

Re: Yoga for Mental Health

BH

I learned so much! Working through trauma takes time. The more work you do the more you will understand and grow. Trauma is helplessness trapped in the body. Loved this course. Thank you so much for offering it. The teacher was fabulous.

Re: Embodiment for Trauma Recovery

Anonymous

I liked the flexibility of in-person or virtual.

​​Very easy to follow along and educational.

Really appreciated being able to access the videos at a later date.
