My wife and I are regulars at Health Place, working out 5 or more times a week. For over 3 years we have attended Vicki’s Yoga classes. At first we went from one to then two beginner classes a week. More than 2 years ago we added the Sunday afternoon Yoga 2 class. When a second Yoga 2 class was added by Health Place on Wednesday evenings, we became regulars also. Looking for greater challenge, we are now transitioning from the beginner classes into the Saturday and Monday Power Yoga classes. We are in Vicki’s classes 4 days a week, building other aerobic, strength training and stretching around our Yoga practice.
We are both currently stronger and more stretched than we can ever remember. This growth is due to Vicki’s incredible inspiration, example and ability to instill confidence in us. She is always the last person to leave the room, taking time to answer questions and demonstrate poses to all who request her time. Whenever we have sent her an email, she replies in a timely manner with detailed answers, attaching articles or sending links to articles, and recommending or offering to loan DVD’s. During class her directions are clear and precise, emphasizing basic fundamentals, and she walks around some of the time to help position class members into the poses. Everything she does builds our enthusiasm and makes us feel incredibly safe.
Health Place, Yoga and Vicki have become so central to our lives. We love Yoga because Vicki loves Yoga and her students. --F.B.
