What students have to say about Annalisa:
"I wanted you to know that your class has been a welcome interlude for me while I was here, and I will miss the opportunity to learn yoga from you. You are a talented instructor with a unique way of explaining the various poses. When I listen to you as you employ metaphors and personal anecdotes in your instructions, I can more readily grasp just what I am supposed to do. Having taken yoga classes in several states, I can attest that your verbal assistance is invaluable. Also, your ability to connect with each student and meet her own needs makes your classes personally rewarding in a group setting. Thank you for your gifts as an instructor and I wish you continued success."
