"Since starting yoga and continuing on with coaching, my regular back pain is now gone. I used to take 17 different pills and now I don't take any! When I would wake up in the morning I would cough for 30 minutes and sometime throw-up. Now I don't cough at all in the morning! I went from unable to do any abs crunches to doing 10 or more daily. I could not get off the toilet without using my hands which I can now. I used to struggle to get up and down from the floor. Tree pose was impossible and my balance has improved since working with Neve. I was 210 pounds, I weighed in today at 185. Overall my health has improved tremendously and I am a better, healthier version of myself. Neve is amazingly accepting and meets each person where they are on their life's journey. She's very encouraging and patient as she demonstrates poses and always explains what the posture will do for your body. She fosters a warm and inviting atmosphere and makes everyone feel successful. When she ends each session by saying that it was her pleasure and joy to be with use, you really feel that she truly means those words and she values each person and their presence there that day."
“I feel 95% better than I did before coaching. I'm eating more real food, and living by the clock. I’m not lagging because I’m tired, I’m ready to start the day when I wake up. I do intermittent fasting without blinking. I lost weight, I have no idea how much because I feel better and have increased energy and that’s all I care about. I have learned to give myself permission to love myself through living the habits taught to us in coaching.”
"The introductory classes I experienced with Neve were wonderful! I sought out yoga as a means to increase and maintain strength and balance. I am 61 and deal with several physical issues that Neve never forgot about and guided me personally with that in mind. In fact, she seemed well aware of each students body and needs, always speaking to each student as an individual and adjusting, suggesting and monitoring each in that manner. I continue my practice at home and look forward to joining the class again." - Donna Wooley (yoga participant)
"Neve's joy and enthusiasm adds a wonderful dimension to her excellent yoga asana and pranayama instruction." -Julia Scoggins (yoga participant)
"Neve takes care of students; taking the time to serve our minds, bodies, and souls. She is a treasure in our local yoga community and I am so happy to have found her." - yoga participant
"Even though I've practiced yoga for many years, I feel like I was really being taught like never before how to get into a pose. Neve is a wonderful teacher." - Teri Osborne (yoga participant)
"The personal attention during ALL classes was amazing. It let me know if I should adjust or modify a pose and I was always made aware if I may be harming myself in a pose. I started the 10 week series anxious and needing a secret to better posture. By the third week I felt more relaxed, focused, and centered. I truly appreciate the positivtiy, community, health, modifications, and meditation taught in this series." - foundations yoga participant
"Neve makes you feel comfortable from the first class." - yoga participant
I recently took a series of classes with Neve called Foundations of Yoga. I went because a friend of mine, who I consider an advanced yogi, kept raving about her class. I had injured the tendon in my ankle not long before my first class. At the time it was undiagnosed. I also had undiagnosed late stage osteoarthritis in my knees. I was not completely new to Yoga and had been doing Therapeutic Yoga for about 4-5 years, as well as Yoga in Mindfulness practices. In fact I regularly do yoga at home on my own. However!!! Not only did the class help with the pain in my ankle and knees, I felt a better alignment in all of my body. Neve has a wonderful way of explaining positions so that you can feel the organic stacking of the bones, joints, and muscles as well as how to move through the positions fluidly. You become aware of your weak areas and therefore can strengthen them making the entire process more effective. Which is why we are taking yoga in the first place…right? She takes the class through a gradual progressive increase in complexity and speed so that you are aware of what you are doing at all times. I HIGHLY recommend her classes, consider her a wonderful teacher, and look forward to going back to take her again. She strengthened my Yoga journey and in such a compassionate manner.
