PIES feels like home

I started taking classes at PIES about 2 or 3 years ago, lured in by the $5/free Community classes on Sunday mornings. Kristen is a fantastic instructor, and she is the reason my practice - both asana and beyond - has developed so much. Her sequencing is unlike any other classes I've taken, and she manages to teach a class that is both very accessible for beginners and challenging to experienced yogis.


It seem that every week I learn a new pose (or at least a new variation) AND some new spiritual tidbit.

I don't have as much experience with the other teachers. Marsha is a wonderfully compassionate teacher, and I recommend her classes to my friends who are too scared to try yoga. Sophia's prenantal classes are exactly what I'd hoped for - challenging enough to be a workout, relaxing enough to soothe the mom-to-be. (I only had to push for 20 minutes when I gave birth to my son, and I attribute that to my yoga practice!)

I also had the privilege of attending their first teacher training, and I honestly could not feel more prepared to go out and teach! I took the training as a way to deepen my own practice and never imagined I'd want to teach, but the training I received, both in learning the poses, how to sequence, and how to cue and find that "teaching voice" has me feeling like I could!

I can't say enough great things about PIES. Every time I show up, it feels like coming home.
