Student Comments

“I have really enjoyed being part of the Jai community this summer (2010)…All the teachers I had (Jen, Kara, Sue Kelly, Hoa and Melinda) were uniformly excellent; all are very skilled and compassionate. Each class was built around an inspirational theme that was truly integrated and not just tacked onto an asana sequence. Awesome! I feel so fortunate to have found Jai Yoga.” –Suzanne B.

“Thank you for one of the best yoga classes ever last night (Monday, May 24, 2010)!  My shoulders and neck feel more open than they have in months, maybe years, and I just feel more alive today, thanks to you.  Thanks so much for a great start to my sense of summer!” –Jeanne B.

“I had my first class this evening and wanted to let you know how very much I enjoyed it. I felt more relaxed after just one class than I’ve felt in a long time – I cannot wait until next Tuesday.” –Janie R.

“Just wanted to say thanks for a great class last night…something about it was just right – felt the effects after, during my sleep, and think I’ve still got the feeling now.” –Tim

“I really can’t express how much I am enjoying and benefiting from the experience that Jai Yoga has provided.” –Joe

“I also want to take the opportunity to thank you for Jai Yoga – I feel blessed to have you all in my life!” –Karen S.

“Uplifting. I have had classes with four of the teachers and this one word applies to all.” –Mike W.

“Last night’s Basics class had 15 people in it and I just want to say I wish I had a teacher like Kara 12 years ago. She does a such a great job adapting to the class at hand – there were a lot of new people and she reaches out to make each one welcome. Yet, I still learned several new things and as always, I “re-membered” a few things. In the transition between classes you could tell there was a lot of enthusiasm with the new people talking about the poses, CD’s, books, the teacher, the space, etc. As a small business owner you must be proud to have someone like her building a reputation for Jai Yoga.” –Dean

“The Monday class is really becoming a treasure. Before class on several occasions I have listened to everyone speak about how much they love the class. I have tried out a lot of different classes and teachers and I must say, the Monday night class is the best class I’ve ever taken. We all thank you a lot.” –Paul

“I just wanted to let you know how much I am enjoying your class. I like your music choices, your gentle but strong way of presenting the asanas, the feeling of the space, your selection of quotes (Live like a lion!) and I loved the essential oil and pressure you applied to my shoulders during relaxation. As I told you, I have really been searching for a yoga class that was closer to home for the past two years. I’ve taken yoga with four other teachers since I left the Portland studio that I loved and haven’t felt like there was as good a fit at any of the places I went, until NOW. Thank you! Thank you!” –Charlotte

“I love your classes! I can feel I’m working and you just make it fun, I want to be here all the time!” –Susan

“My breathing has changed when I run; it is deeper and more efficient.” –Sandy

“Your class is so deep and meaningful. Thank You.” –Susan

“I just wanted to let you know that something you said in yoga the other day has really been helpful to me. You were talking about the holidays and how all the lights of all the traditions represent trying to bring the light inside and extend the warmth as the days grow shorter and darker. As I said the other day, the holidays are a weird time for me and the X-mas lights were aggravating it, but your words gave me a new perspective. So, thanks.” –Lauren
