“I’ve had a lot of yoga teachers, in a lot of studios, in a lot of cities, and Avery will probably be one of those world-traveling yoga teachers in the future. She’s that good! Why? Her knowledge and enthusiasm for yoga, her verbal instructions and explanations (which are ever-changing, based on her continued reading and education and workshops), her use of props and explanations of HOW to use the props. Avery has an unusual ability to internalize teachings from other visiting instructors, and incorporate them into her classes so that her students also get the benefit. Avery is funny and kind and insightful, and no two classes are alike. You walk out of every class thinking, “That’s just what I needed.” She will motivate you during challenging poses, and make sure you are in proper alignment, with any modifications you need. During restorative poses she will lull you into a meditative state, again making sure you are using the props the right way, for proper support and alignment. Treat yourself to a class or workshop with Avery! (You’ll be hooked!)”
“Avery, I wanted to send a short note to express my gratitude to you for teaching such an amazing class yesterday.
All day I felt an extreme sense of space and well being. It really opened up those areas of my pelvis and sacrum that have held congestion for years after the vehicular accident.
Thank you for all that you bring to your practice.”
“I learned a great deal in Avery’s workshop, “Remaining Clear and Focused During Conflict.” A month later, a new supervisor threatened my job–but thanks to Avery’s teaching, I was able to remain calm and collected in stressful situations. The skills she taught made my life bearable during an incredibly difficult time.”
