“Zain reignites and reaffirms my focus on yoga and the valuable impact it has in my life.” – Karen
“After taking group classes with Zain for most of the year, I signed up for a private series to work on some of the poses that were most challenging me. Zain is guided by the best parts of the Hatha/Iyengar tradition: finding alignment that works for your body and the asana, discovering new approaches to poses, and enjoying the learning along the way. He’ll push you and keep you from blowing out your joints. Highly recommended.” – Mahi
“Studying Iyengar Yoga with Tessa Manning has completely changed my practice. Not only is she incredibly knowledgeable, she is also supportive and full of encouragement for her students! She takes the time to know each person’s strengths–and struggles–and adjusts each class to help every student push their limits safely. I have learned and grown so much from her classes. “ -Amanda
“In her classes, Tessa takes a measured, calm, and thoughtful approach, delivering her wisdom in a compassionate, encouraging, and helpful way. Her guidance and support are always carefully thought through and distilled to their essence so that she communicates precisely what is needed at that particular moment. Tessa is one of the most genuine and fully engaged people I have ever met. She is utterly sincere in all her interactions, and she shows a heartfelt desire to help her students reach and even exceed their own goals. Tessa has been an inspiring and positive force helping me in my yoga practice, and in helping me to grow and become the person that I want to be.” –Stacy
