"Private classes with Judi took me to a new level of yoga skill, appreciation and understanding of my body. Judi's custom approach to each of her students and clients creates an incredibly warm and safe atmosphere to push yourself, rest when you need to and focus your mind. 90 minutes with Judi is a moving meditation - exactly what yoga should be - yet what's missing lately from so many classes. Judi has taken the core fundamentals of yoga and put them back right where they belong: into her students' postures and breath, the result of which is a challenging, beautiful and extremely gratifying yoga lesson." - Vicky K.
"I've known Judi for many years, and I was excited to support her when she pursued her yoga teaching dream. What started out for me as supporting a friend turned into a full-on practice, spiritual awakening, movement awareness, strength and empowerment practice. First I became committed to Judi's weekly class at my local studio. Soon after, I was ready and eager to take my practice to the next level. Judi's private lessons are totally catered to where you are in your practice, but also where you may find yourself that day. She is intuitive, attentive, and skilled at crafting the practice to your needs. You come out floating, serene and strong - at least I do! For me one of Judi's greatest strengths is her ability to curate and choreograph each class so that you are always building on your practice - your skills, strength and focus. It also helps that she is totally humble, warm, welcoming and fearless." Isabella P.
"My private yoga session with Judi is one of the highlights of my week! Her calming presence at the end of a long day is such a joy, and her personal attention has advanced my practice significantly. She plans classes that focus on my long-term goals and she is always willing and able to switch things up on the spot based on what I ask her for on any given evening. Judi guides me to find more room in every pose and gives me the tools to build on my practice and the confidence and strength to attempt new, more difficult poses. She's even able to turn my living room into a studio, a place of calm and meditation, with my kids asleep on the next room! I'm so grateful to have Judi as my teacher, friend, and guide, both on my yogic journey and in life." - Lisa D "I highly recommend booking some sessions with Judi. I know many of us have enjoyed her Women's yoga flow and Prenatal sessions (and her amazing hip workshop that is still paying great dividends for me, weeks later!!) I scheduled some one-on-one sessions with her this spring to get a better grounding in the basic poses and to work on my form as part of my commitment to regaining some strength and confidence post-kids, and her instruction exceeded all my expectations. The time at the studio with her was always a highlight of my week. I would come in there depleted and needing a nap and walk out feeling calm, centered, and prepared to deal with whatever the week had in store for me. Judi projects a serenity, strength, and warmth that made me instantly comfortable and practicing with her gave me a place to reflect and hear what my mind and body were trying to communicate to me. We started every session with a short meditation and intention-setting (can't tell you how many times this practice helped me get my heart in the right place when I had come in tied up in knots about something or other). Then we would spend time going through poses- Judi would demonstrate, explain, encourage, and adjust as needed I had spent a decent amount of time in yoga classes but this was the first time I really began to understand how much is going on in each pose, and how it unfolds as you hold it. Judi taught me to sit with any difficulty or discomfort that cropped up and to notice and observe where I was resisting, and why- and of course like all things yoga-related this lesson resonates on many levels, beyond just the physical body. I felt completely at ease, accepted, and supported with Judi and it allowed me to push myself physically, mentally and spiritually, and also to get really honest with myself." -Sarah P.
