"For a long time my daughters have been trying to get me to go to yoga, saying that it would help me control different issues in my life. Stress, anxiety and depression kind of took over and I always had an excuse not to go. I would say, I don't have the time, didn't want to go alone, or it cost to much, but most of all I knew that it was my confidence level.

For me there was this big fear of being judged and not being able to do it. I met up with an old friend one day and she told me that she started going to yoga, so I asked if I could go with her. That was one of the best decisions I could of made.

From the very first class I took with Norma, I was hooked. She has a special gift that she passes on through her teachings that just fills my soul. My outlook on life has changed so much that I see everything different now and know it's ok to be different.

I take care of myself more and the best part is that I am a different person. My family likes the new me! Norma makes every class she teaches so much fun, the workouts are awesome, and has taught me to let go of things that do not serve me. Norma is very dedicated to her practice and passes that to each one of us. I only started practicing yoga about 5 months ago, but plan to make it a lifetime commitment . My only regret is that I did not start my journey earlier!! 

Thank you Norma, you are awesome!!  Love & Namaste."
