Feedback on Keri-Ann's Teachings
"I’m guessing you know how much I love your class. Even my husband has noticed that my balance is better (I am impossibly clumsy) and I showed him how my head can almost reach my feet in cobbler pose.
He was quite impressed."-J. Rose March 2022
"Keri-Ann offers a great variety of wellness classes centered around yoga and mindfulness. She has adapted her wellness classes to relate to your current environment and stress management. Keri-Ann has been able to adapt her teaching to offer both in person and virtual wellness classes.
Her communication is prompt and respectful."
- Management Review from Mirbeau Inn & Spa January 2022
"Keri Ann conducted a private yoga class for my friends and I during our mom's weekend away. There was varying levels of yoga experience in the room from "never taken a class" to "taken 10 classes or more". Keri Ann was able to tailor her program and poses to the range of experience levels in the room. In addition, Keri Ann was really in tune with what we needed to get out of the class which was basically a full body stretch and some serious stress relief. I would HIGHLY recommend Keri Ann. She was easy to work with, a pleasure to be around, and just an overall fantastic instructor." -Laura, New York August 2019 (Yoga Soiree Birthday Party)
"Thank you again for everything last week. Everyone is still raving about what
an amazing time they had!
-Elyse C. New York, September 2017 (Company Retreat)
"Keri*Ann came to our rented home and taught a group of 7 of us for Yoga.
A mixed gender and mixed experienced group, Keri*Ann, quickly understood the particular energy of our group and aligned and personalized her lesson. She really made us feel as though she was having as much fun as we were! Keri*Ann was also super professional, punctual, and responsive prior to her coming.
I would definitely use her again!
- Steph B. New York, August 2017 (Wedding Party Soiree)

"Keri Anne is the sh*t I loved Keri Ann. She was welcoming and I felt like I could tell her anything, and I felt like she wasn't judging me, I opened up to her very quickly and I don't really do that with most people we started with basic stretches that I never even knew or tried in a yoga class it was very relaxing ,she put all her effort into showing me if I was doing it right even though she knew I was watching her she was making sure I was doing it right to we started out doing a lot of breathing exercises which I've been doing day by day and still feeling better I can't wait to see her again next Friday! Thank You Thumbtack for finding the perfect yoga teacher that fits my needs and to become more balanced."

"Keri-Ann, I want to personally thank you for giving of your time and efforts for an outstanding hands-on workshop experience of yoga. It added SIGNIFICANTLY to the summit experience and provided the critical experiential link to what we were discussing. This morning I received the following unsolicited e-mail from an attendee:'Thank you again for the best learning experience I've had at NMCSD to date.'

“I want you to know that it has been an absolute privilege to have known you for these past several months an even greater honor to have studied under for that time. I think it’s really fucking cool and incredibly honorable the way that YOU serve our country and support our military. It is refreshing to see a civilian have so much love and support for us and WANT to do what they can to help. “

"The 5 days of Yoga I had with Keri Ann (in the lovely Italian mountain village of Casperia) were fantastic, inspiring and encouraging. I have practiced Yoga before but Keri Ann managed to motivate, encourage and challenge me to an extent that I am now even ore keen on working on my poses and actually believe that I can get to a higher level. She was great in teaching us, in monitoring us, but also realizing where the limits were. She is such a positive and energetic person that we even did not mind leaving our cozy home in pouring rain just to have another YOGA class! Thus it was 5 fantastic days and I would try to go anywhere to do another course with her." - Brigette L., Prague May 2009
