"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, Arterra Wines

"Although I have ridden horses for many years, after a few bad experiences I became extremely fearful of riding any more as an adult. The fear was so pronounced that I would begin trembling at just tacking up a horse.
One day a friend suggested that I take a couple of her horses out for a spin with my daughter. I had always said, No, maybe another time...I had too much anxiety to try to work through and therefore was missing out on having some great fun!
But since taking Unyong’s class, I was able to release that fear, and become grounded again. A wave of calm and quiet confidence had washed over me and I was right in synch with the horses, the day, and my daughter. There was no fear at all. We had a lovely, and relaxing time, just as I had always wished.
Since beginning Stress Burner Yoga classes this year, I have found myself able to handle stressful situations like this with more spaciousness and calm. I have learned many tools for on the spot use, which I use many times a day, so there are now many stories like this one. It feels good to know that there are ways to manage my life without always reacting with stress or internalizing it. I have referred many people to Unyong's classes and would love to have more friends and loved ones enjoy the benefits as well."
