You are a phenomenal teacher. I appreciate your depth and wisdom and on a practical level, your detailed instructions as we work. Even on good ole Zoom, it’s very reassuring.

I have not felt so good in ages, as I have since your workshop. My hips have been tight and while I have been doing strength training with a personal fitness trainer for years, I have not been able to resolve this issue. Thanks Sienna!

The breathing techniques we are practicing help me stay grounded, present, and more energetic. I do a breathing practice every night in bed as I am ready to go sleep. I fall asleep easily and quickly and seem to sleep more deeply. I am feeling much less stress, fear, and anxiety.

Your yoga has been beneficial not only to my body but also for my body-spirit connection. Old energies have cleared in the areas you have focused, especially my hips. I too had hip injury & I had to take Advil every night which I am not now. Thank You.

Thanks for leading a wonderful sequence this morning Sienna and I felt this I magically received exactly what I needed Right now. How do you do that? Also, since this was my first online streaming flow class I must say I was pleasantly surprised at the relatively high video and audio quality of the class as well as the ability to connect with other yogis in class today via chat.

I am having a profound experience this week, since I began the Breathe Well practices… my anxiety and depression levels feel like they are less than usual and significantly less than since Covid hit, my sleep is more sound and I feel rested when I awake, and I have more energy throughout my workday and I am experiencing more inspiration overall. Thank you.

I loved all the twisting and the freeing up of my spine and breath. Loved your quote in the beginning and your reading from the Bhagavad Gita verses to unnravel the philosophy of life and the spiritual. Oh and the breathing – your classes are so potent! Thank you.

Thank you for mid-back opening class this morning. Super helpful! I’ve been wondering about “the back of the heart” for years. How to not just open up the front, but also back. Another memorable class I attended was your heart-opening one & I still practice those poses.

While doing the Cobra I realized that, apart from my shoulders and back, I was supporting myself almost entirely with my side body. When I consciously engaged my inner thighs and other core muscles, I suddenly felt so much more confident.
