Gwen is a warm-hearted teacher known for guiding students to a deeper understanding of their unique beings.

As a newbie to yoga, I was skeptical. One hour with Gwen changed my perception about yoga and myself. After a few months of practicing, I have become more flexible, stand straighter and feel stronger. She helps her students achieve their full practice level regardless of experience by providing individual attention, guidance, teaching, empathy and understanding. From the bottom of my heart, thank you Gwen!

As a regularly practicing yogi, Gwen is the best of the best yoga teachers in a city full of wonderful instructors. Gwen’s classes are well thought out and physically make sense. Her instruction is very thorough with great attention to detail, and they have really helped me take my practice deeper, opening up my body and my mind.

Gwen, your intuition, expertise and knowledge have been a sanctuary for me. Becoming a mother has been the most incredible time in my life, but it has also been a time when I have lost some pieces of myself. Your class has allowed me to find those pieces I still need, to move my body in a healthy, safe environment, and to rejuvenate my spirit. You know just when to push me, and when to heal me with a few restorative poses. Your classes are a sanctuary. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

I had not been to yoga class in over 5-6 years when I walked into your class and met you (and even then I was just a beginner)...not only was I nervous about my lower back but the fear of walking into an established mixed-level class made me very apprehensive…from the moment we spoke I knew you were the type of teacher that enjoyed everyone no matter what their challenges are…. you have a very gentle way of teaching and speaking to your class.....and in a way a self-deprecating sense of humor that lets us all feel we are on the same page  ...so even though there was a great deal I could not do, or I constantly fell over, I didn’t mind and looked forward to my next experience in your class.....you always give options to those people in your class like me, which not only makes me more comfortable but look forward to when I can do that position or some form of it and not be fearful….I can’t thank you enough for your support and compassion, you have opened a world to me that I thought was closed.  many many thanks!

Of the many exercise and yoga classes my wife Jane and I have taken over past years, none has come close to Gwen’s classes. Her mixture of deep stretching, toning, flexing, relaxation and a cleansing of the spirit was always a highlight of our day. It was truly a pleasure and a great benefit to work with Gwen. Our only regret was having to return from LA to Washington DC.  Namaste!
