I found Judith's flyer in an Indian restaurant that I would not visit again, but I'm so grateful I walked in that day and ripped off a tab with her phone number. Judith is by far the best yoga teacher I have ever worked with. I attend a class that I drive to straight from work and often walk in stressed, tired, deflated, and thinking that exercise and movement is the last thing I want to do. And I walk out of each class stretched, relaxed, calm, and knowing that the hour and a half I just spent with Judith will resonate with me for days to come. One of the things I most appreciate about Judith as a teacher is the way she combines a prepared lesson plan with flexibility and connection to her students' needs. There are days that she looks out at a class full of slouched and stressed office workers and says "this is what you all look like you need today". She always asks if there are special requests at the beginning of class and when someone yells out "Neck!" or "Lower Back!", she will work in extra strectching and attention to that area. I have taking classes with Judith for a year and a half and see the progress I have made every day and appreciate how Judith lays out a path for growth in your own yoga.

Beyond Judith's skill as a yoga teacher, I appreciate the energetic elements she brings to our class. She weaves in information about how a pose is cleansing for a particular chakra but will also point out what organs a pose benefits or how a pose can calm or increase your energy. And all along, as she instructs, corrects and adjusts, commends our effort, and celebrates with an energetic "Beautiful, everybody!", she does it with a lovely and soft British accent. I wouldn't trade Judith's voice for any other and feel her tone and her accent and her energy all play a role in my enjoyment and success in her class.

Pros: Dynamic teacher, flexibility in making up classes, direct attention and instruction, provides all necessary equipment

Cons: Only that I don't have space for another paragraph raving about the benefits of a class with Judith.

While seeking help for a bad back, a friend suggested Judith's class. I have been attending Judith's classes for two years and have just celebrated a one year anniversary with no back pain. I contribute my pain-free year to my increased core strength, patience and understanding of my body. All as a direct result of yoga.

Tired of those yoga teachers who are just bursting at the seams to show you how well they can do a head stand or a body pretzle? Then you absolutely must give Judith a try! Judith's philosophy shows through her teaching. She already knows yoga, so why spend the entire class sitting at the front showing you what she knows? Judith takes time throughout the class to help people individually if she sees them doing a pose wrong or in a position where they can hurt themselves. She demonstrates it first, then helps you give it a try.

I've been to several other yoga classes in my lifetime, and those teachers have much to learn from a teacher like Judith. Some teachers simply talked too much. Other teachers kept you in down dog as if that's the only position they knew. And still other teachers stayed in front of the class talking you through the poses and never making an effort to help you get into the pose or try a modified version of the pose that's just right for your body. Judith will check on you and help you out.

Judith offers a range of clases like Gentle, More Stretch, and Advanced classes. She also offers classes just for women and classes just for men. She makes sure to take it easy on her students in the Gentle classes. And even in the Advanced class, if she has a student making up for a missed class that isn't usually in the Advanced class, she makes sure that student does not try the advanced poses unless they are sure. You are in good hands with Judith.

In fact, her gentle class is so good that I can go to her class with a headache and by the time the class is over the headache is gone. I can go to her class with my entire body in knots and walk out feeling like I just had a professional massage! All without her ever once touching me. It's the positions and the ease in which she transitions you into each position that relaxes your body and melts away the stress. She has me truly convinced that her intent is to TEACH and LIVE yoga, not just show yoga.
