"Don't Be Intimidated"
A Journey to Health & Wellness at One Yoga & Fitness
- Testimonial by Jane Neuharth
I almost didn’t come… I liked what I saw on One Yoga’s website, and I liked what I saw when I pressed my nose against the glass entrance door. But I am an overweight woman in my mid-50’s and I have never done yoga in my life. My body has been crying out to me for a while, though, and I knew that I wanted to try yoga. So, even though I was afraid that I might not be able to do it and that I might fall on my face and make a total fool of myself, I took what was a big step for me and came to One Yoga & Fitness. I am so very happy that I did!
I started by meeting with Gina for a couple of private introductory sessions. Gina is a perfect instructor for me – she is professional, kind, enthusiastic and knowledgeable. She helped me get started and gave me the confidence to move on to the classroom setting.
To be honest, my plan was to get some private instruction, go to a few classes, and then get some DVDs, etc., so that I could practice yoga at home on my own. What I didn’t understand was just how special the group atmosphere would be! I have attended One Yoga classes taught by several different instructors and I love them all! Each instructor has her own teaching style and each of the classes is different, but they have each made me feel welcomed, comfortable, challenged and rewarded.
One Yoga’s open and generous spirit is contagious. The other students I have met are all friendly and it just feels good and right for me to be there.
In my first 90 days of practicing yoga, I have gained confidence, strength and balance and feel that I now belong to a community of like-minded, positive people. And, being part of this group has inspired me to take better care of myself in other ways… I have lost 15 pounds in this three month period and am looking forward to becoming stronger, more fit and more centered as I continue my yoga practice.
So… if you are feeling intimidated about trying yoga, please don’t be afraid. One Yoga is a perfect place to learn, have fun, get stronger and even tip over now and then. It’s all good.
