From a recent client:
I would like to thank you for a life changing experience. My daughter treated me to a private yoga lesson with you on Sept. 7th down by the beach at the Amelia Island Plantation. It was my 60th birthday. That is the BEST birthday I have ever had. My daughter and I had both decided to start practicing yoga. Your lesson and kind words afterwards meant so much to both of us. You are a remarkable, amazing, inspiring and beautiful woman. I look forward to participating in some classes and workshops at Go Yoga when I visit Amelia Island. Thank you so much for making me realize that turning 60 is not the beginning of the end. For me, turning 60 is going to be the start of a new adventure.
