What Others Say

5 Day Yoga Sadhana Feedback:

he environment was non-judgemental and safe for all levels of capability. It was a good setting for learning; I was on auto-pilot before and the class awakened a new awareness of my body....Great experience, would take the classes again. My body thanks me for it; " Karen O'Connell, 60

"I s
urprised myself at how much I needed this. Biggest takeaway: To practice embodiment and how the mind and body are so very much connected. A really good reminder to live in awareness. Enjoyed the time to reflect and share with others." Debra, Retired 65

"It was an ideal time for me. I have been alone this week and jumped at the opportunity to have this experience. It was such an awakening and I had time for pause and reflection. I enjoyed the silence, fellowship and being more in tune with my body and mind....a beautiful time."

"Joanne, thank you so much. This is the first time in a really long time that I have been free of neck pain!" Vicky
"My 2 year experience with Joanne’s Therapy Yoga has been very positive for me during my pre and post operative knee surgery. With Joanne’s guidance using her yoga techniques daily, I have gained full use of my knee motion. I would highly recommend her classes." Derris Uhrig
"LOVE Joanne's restorative yoga class!!! I've been enjoying her gentle and very effective yoga classes for over a year now ... low back pain is gone ... I find walking and breathing easier and have way more energy ! THANK YOU Joanne !" Marlene Pratt
"As a new student to yoga, I started taking Joanne's Gentle Yoga classes this year and have found them to be extremely beneficial. They have helped me both mentally and physically. I would recommend them for anyone seeking a gentle start to learning yoga." Maureen Hussey

"That (class) was great. I have never put the pelvic floor awareness together so much with breathing and diaphragm movement. I have often wondered how to stay centred in some of the table position movements where you lift your legs. I always seem to be uncentred. This was eye opening. Thank you." Maureen Mundan, Class Online

"Hi Joanne,

     I'm sorry I could not make it to any of the extra classes you've been having this season, although tempting.  I joined the Meaford Curling Club and have been out 3 nights a week doing that!

     Honestly 3 years ago I never would have thought it possible that I would be able to participate in the activities I am currently enjoying in my life.  Taking your classes regularly during that time kept me on track and the improvements I saw week to week and month to month were so encouraging. 

     I will never be able to express my full gratitude to you for the care and skill you shared with me that allowed me to heal my body and mind. Simply, all I can is a very heartfelt "Thank you!".  Susan

"I have really enjoyed your classes and have found a real improvement in my body awareness, posture and flexibility in a relatively short time." Rebecca Wall

" I had two knees replaced in 2010 and one knee never felt normal after that. I tried physio after the operation and it made the knee the way the doctors wanted to see it but my range of motion was limited and I was in pain after walking. My body just didn't feel natural to me. Joanne taught me how to stretch in a way I hadn't before, and forced me to relax. Yoga brought my body back together again." Deb Mobbs, On the Bay Magazine, Winter 2012
"Joanne, I enjoyed the seminar very much. I have had a look at the "Stop Sciatic pain" manual you have put together and would like to purchase it for my office." Christine Harrison, Optimum Chiropractic
"I wish to thank you for sharing your knowledge and information on back pain. It was very informative and I have been using your instructed stretches with great success. It's nice to know relief can be obtained!" Leslie Davis

      "I had been treated for Sciatica for almost eight months (physiotherapy, acupuncture, massage therapy, medications);  all without much improvement.  My physiotherapist asked me if I had heard of Yoga Therapy and suggested that I consider it. 
      At this point in time, I was desperate to try everything and anything and so I met Joanne.  I started at Inner Journey by taking her session that was especially formatted to improve spinal health/sciatica and within two weeks, I started to feel significant improvement.   
     The exercises were explained fully and Joanne was a big motivator for me.  I actually enjoyed practicing the stretches at home and if I had a question, she would explain it to me- again.  I liked the classes so much that I continue to attend her other classes.  She has a gentle touch and demeanor and is a very patient woman.   
     My only regret is that I did not find her sooner!  Thank you Joanne."  Jane Phair

     "Your classes pretty much changed how I deal with my back. I do your exercises almost every day (5-7 days week). I’ve learned my limitations - stacking wood is still not a great activity to do - or lifting super heavy things isn’t an option either - but other than that - I’m back to normal and active. 

      I have not had any issues like that disc problem.   I have only “tweaked” my back ONCE since your classes (my fault, I went to grab something really heavy out at an arm’s length), and it was fine a day later.   Previously - i would have a back spasm at least 2-3 times a year (each time a multi day issue), and various other “tweaks” throughout the year that would take a long time to recover.

     I have also not been back to the chiropractor, or needed Robax.   So. all in all - pretty awesome : )
