Effie is unlike any yoga instructor I've had before, she is the reason I now look forward to my weekly restorative yoga session. She encourages our class to accept ourselves as we are today. Her melodic voice and calming nature help to unwind my mind and reduce tension in my body. I feel relaxed and recharged at the end of her class. ~Dawn.

Effie is kind, compassionate, patient and knowledgeable. In Effieʼs hands you feel secure and listened to. She definitely lives what she teaches. No matter what issue I have from stress to stiffness, she is able to help. ~ Sharon

Hey Effie, Thank you very much for the private yoga lesson. It was challenging yet peaceful and I felt very welcomed by your friendly personality. It is greatly appreciated. Take care and happy holidays. –Kei.

Effie has a very gentle voice and manner. Her restorative classes are soothing. I have always found her to be receptive to feedback and open to suggestion. Enjoy! -Sloane

"The first thing I noticed was how calming and soothing her voice was...really emphasized the importance of breathing... I felt very relaxed with a more positive attitude towards the rest of my day." -Cecilia

"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.
