"I looked to Effie and her yoga instruction as a way to improve my flexibility, and mental focus. I enjoyed her calming personality and ability to guide me... reminding me to be gentle and forgiving with my body. By the end I felt energized and centered and I highly recommend her. Thank you Effie!" -Anthony

"..I step foot into Effie's Yin Yang yoga.. After the class, I felt my hips are stretched. So I said to myself "ok! feels good, let's come back again". After going to Effie's class every week for 3 months, I noticed my hips are a lot more opened and flexible. When I strike a pose in the other Hatha classes, it's a lot easier. Thanks Effie! Now I am one of your regular students every week. ~ J.W.
