"I absolutely love the yoga classes available on their [Laughing Elephant Yoga] website. Such a wonderful variety. And how great that you can Chromecast to your TV. I can't wait to try all of the On Demand options."
"I love Bitsy’s yoga classes! She keeps the classes interesting by offering different moves and creative meditations. Often Bitsy creates a soothing environment with aromatherapy, candles, and relaxing music. Her pacing and cueing are easy to follow and she cares about protecting us from injuries. I am grateful for her work and that the YMCA gives her a convenient, affordable venue."
"I really appreciated the long 'introspective' breathing of this afternoon's class. I thought I was completely ready to go into yoga mode but then found my mind wandering, compulsively.. It took me a while to harness my wandering thoughts and the long breathing and her calm commentary before class helped me to set my spirit into 'yoga' mode. thank you, Bitsy!
Wow...am I sore tonight! (and happy)"
"Bitsy's yoga classes are the best I've ever attended. She is the total package yoga instructor. She sets an atmosphere of peace and tranquility and puts all her students at ease. Bitsy is so gentle yet confident with her instruction. She is knowledgeable and kind when she offers encouragement and suggestions. Her yoga classes are the best part of my week. Informative, challenging, but peaceful and relaxing at the same time. Bitsy's teaching empowers and inspires!"
"Bitsy’s yoga class won’t disappoint! She is truly a professional when it comes to teaching yoga. All that’s required for her class is a willingness to get centered, visualize an intention to carry with you through class and work your personal best as she guides you through the poses. Even savasana can’t be beat with her excellent choice in music & the passing whiff of organic essential oil. You’ll leave her class feeling wonderfully stretched along with the gift you give yourself of carrying your positive intention throughout your busy day."
"I have been practicing yoga for 25 years. I have taken classes at group exercise facilities and private yoga studios. I can honestly say, Bitsy is the most wonderful yoga instructor I have ever experienced. She creates a practice that allows for the body, mind, and spirit to blend and reach a place of balance, empowerment, and joy. I appreciate that Bitsy structures her classes in such a way that they are accessible to all participants, regardless of experience or level. Bitsy brings a spiritual aspect to the practice that is rare and appreciated by her students."
"I am a 76 year old male with both knees replaced, 3 back operations and both shoulders operated on.
My body wants to be stiff and ache and yoga relieves both.
Bitsy’s enthusiasm along with her caring attitude makes the sessions rewarding and over before you realize it.
One enjoys it so much you are always ready to come and best of all you always feel so much better both physically and mentally after a session."
"Upon moving to WNC five years ago, it was my good fortune to find a yoga class led by Bitsy. I knew immediately that I had found my new yoga “home” with her.
Whether a casual student or a serious yoga practitioner, Bitsy encourages and motivates her students in each class. She always suggests more/less challenging options to choose from throughout the class, so that I don’t feel “left behind” with my skill level. In addition to her extensive knowledge and expertise, Bitsy brings passion, enthusiasm, (and yes, fun!) to each session. She prepares thoughtfully and adds variety to each session to keep things interesting. Having previous neck and shoulder injuries, safety is a important issue for me. I am totally comfortable with Bitsy’s oversight, as she remains cognizant of my physical issues and quietly helps me adjust positions that are misaligned or potentially harmful."
"I want to thank you so much for opening your beautiful space for the celebration of the full moon, being in your class and on my mat after so many long years felt like coming home. You are bringing something special to the community. looking forward to many more classes with you."
