Hannah's Clients Say:
 
"I enjoyed Hanna's class very much. I've not taken a meditative yoga class before. It both decreased a sense of agitation about a specific incident that occurred just prior to class, and boosted my energy level by freeing energy that had been trapped by the agitating situation." Barbara S., 10/15

"Great TGIF class with Hannah. Perfect way to end the week. Lovely studio too." Jane G

"Lovely TGIF class on Friday with Hannah. Just what I needed to end the week. Easy asananas then restore and relax." Jane G.
