Overcoming blocks to getting to Stress Burner Yoga classes or workshops:

In an effort to make our programs accessible and to unleash your resourcefulness here are a few ideas:

  • If a friend registers for regular classes with you, you get a free class (value $20).
  • Friends can check out a first class without risk, paying for that class only if they decide to continue and register.
  • Prorations for whole sessions are possible if you know in advance you are going to have to miss classes.
  • You can do make-ups within the course of the session at any Stress Burner Yoga class when possible.
  • You can make up a class by getting a friend to go to class for you (you could gift or be reimbursed by the friend).
  • Let's be creative! If you don't see a way to afford a class, let's brainstorm: explore a barter, or exchange of services, the possibilities are boundless and we are all rich in resources when you broaden the definition.

Stress Burner Yoga results:

"I had always been active, running and working out, but had bouts of debilitating back pain.  My doctor had told me, 'The jelly's come out of the doughnut,' referring to my discs, and recommended spinal surgery, which I declined.  Though I had been skeptical, I was now more open to yoga, so I began doing stretches that Unyong recommended each morning and now feel fine, even lifting heavy things.  I'm happy to have been able to avoid going under the knife."  --Professor Paul Almeida, Senior Associate Dean, Georgetown University, McDonough School of Business


"I have been in chronic back pain since 1969.  After following Unyong's instructions to do a few minutes of specific back stretching in bed each morning, after just one week, the pain had lessened to pre-1969 days.  I felt like I had a new body!" 
--Jeanne H., home care worker and grandmother      


"Just left the doctor-- 
I no longer need blood pressure meds!! Woo hoo, I thank you for that!!!!" 
--Sandy Gray Murray, ceramic artist


"I've been doing a lot of that breathing stuff at work, and I had my lowest blood pressure in 20 years, 120/70."  --Robert Lee, DC lawyer


"Once I started my daily yoga practice major health benefits followed.
Migraine attacks became less frequent and if a migraine attack started to occur ujjayi breathing would sometimes stop the attack." 
--Justy Holt, ice-hockey player


"After three classes of Stress Burner Yoga, I began to notice where my type A approach was creating unnecessary stress for me, so I began cutting it out.  It has really made a difference in my stress level." 
--Dr. Katharine Ayres, physical therapist.


"I have had back pain for years from being in a car collision when I was 16 at 55 miles per hour, and doing very physical work each day, so I have been doing yoga on my own for years.  Since taking Stress Burner Yoga class, I have learned that I may have been doing it wrong and hurting myself.  With all the corrections and adjustments, I feel so much better when I practice." 
--Jason Murray, winemaker


"The way you teach yoga is so simple yet it has such a HUGE impact upon our lives!  I love the way you refer to it as taking it off the mat.  I now understand that it's not about showing up for 1 hour a week to be mindful of my body and mind, but it's all about a life skill to be more open and accepting of my life and the events in it."    
--Paula Dierkes, mother of five sons


"Stress Burner Yoga emphasizes taking yoga off the mat.  Applying yoga principles has helped improve my ice hockey performance, including a major improvement in my skating, so that I can quickly come right back up after being knocked down, thinking of Warrior pose!  It's great considering most of the players are about half my age!  Yoga is part of my life now; I want to be that 60 year old guy that can still play ice hockey competitively in a rec league."
--Justy Holt, ice hockey enthusiast


"You've helped me so much, the more people are exposed to you, the better the world will be.  My husband says I'm a lot nicer." 
--Julie Freeman-Moore, mother of four and spouse of Army Major with multiple deployments.


"Unyong excels at helping her students identify simple ways to incorporate yoga into daily life--recognizing stressors and counteracting them with a yoga moment.  She connects yoga to real world experiences in ways that are memorable and practical, like the unbendable arm.  She is excellent at teaching groups with mixed levels of experience and finding common ground, and she exudes a sense of calm and warmth that is reflected in her teaching style.   I left every class feeling physically looser and mentally lighter than I arrived.  If everyone could take her class, the world would be a much calmer place!"
-–Paula Murphy, DC lawyer


"Unyong has been an inspiring Yoga instructor. I had never taken Yoga, before I met her. She has encouraged us to not only learn stretches, breathing techniques, and poses, but more importantly, to integrate these into our daily home routines. I am now able to call on relaxation techniques to de-stress work and commuting than before I began learning from her."
-–Julie Bruns, Project Manager

Kids can get stressed out by school, world events, and multi-media stimuli. Using stories, poses and games, we will learn ways to calm the mind, re-charge the body and celebrate the spirit.

"My sons were fighting and crying intensely before we had to go somewhere. I sent them out to the car ahead of me, and by the time I arrived a couple of minutes later, they were smiling and laughing. I asked what had happened and my older son (age 8) said, he remembered what he had learned in yoga class about breathing when mad or sad, and calmed himself down. Then he taught his little brother (age 6)!" -A happy and surprised Yoga Mom
