“Yesterday was my first attempt at yoga in years and my first visit to BV.
Needless to say, I was a bit nervous and didn’t know what to expect. From
the moment I walked in, everyone was joyful and welcoming (very reassuring for a
newbie!) As I entered the Power Yoga class, students and staff had an incredibly
positive vibe towards one another & were genuinely curious how everyone’s
day was, how they had been doing, and who the new folks were. Once class began,
I felt relaxed and empowered. Leigh had such a great balance of peaceful and playful–I
can’t wait to come again! Thank you!”
“I just wanted to thank you for the great power yoga class last Saturday.
I was visiting from NY and really appreciated the personalized assistance during
class and the welcoming environment. I travel all over north america for work and
try to maintain my yoga practice when I’m on the road, leading to some interesting
yoga classes (running from good, not so great, to downright weird – which
at least give me some funny on-the-road stories). My experience at Bala was a really
happy surprise. I will definitely be back the next time I’m in Naples.”
“I’m happy to have found BV Yoga- location, times, teachers, and variety of styles are just right. I
like how accessible it is for family and friends- all levels can participate.”
“I am grateful to have this many choices as I follow my body’s needs of the day.”
“I am just a part-time Naples resident, but each time I show up after months of
being gone, I am made to feel so welcome.”
“Aside from the terrific yoga practices and teachers, your computer interface makes
it so easy to register online, track classes, and keep up with what’s going on from
“The atmosphere is very welcoming and calm. All the teachers are kind & inspiring.”
“I really love my experiences at BV and have met some wonderful people.”
“I have enjoyed all of the workshops that I have attended. Always good energy and
lots of laughs and sweat.”
“My first class at Bala Vinyasa Yoga was one of the most energizing, rejuvenating,
and fun classes I’ve ever taken. I’ve loved the tempo, challenge, philosophical
thoughts and encouragement, and the positive energy of the room.”
“The classes….are my stress relief. I feel wonderful and charged for several days
“Kiersten- many, many “thank yous” for the wonderful workshop on Saturday! You are
an incredible teacher with a true gift for guiding your students with ease and love.
Now we’re back in California and I have been thinking about the “Laws” a great deal
and feel at once centered and “rocked” by their ideas. Even though they are ideas
I’ve heard and read before, for some reason they really resonated with me this weekend.
(Sometimes, I guess, one has to be truly open to really hear something in order
to make change!) Additionally, you have a lovely studio and mother too! With much
gratitude and blessings,”
“I just wanted to let you know how pleased I was to have had the chance to practice
at your studio. I was there this time last year, when you had just opened. I love
seeing the yoga community growing and extending out to new people. Being a teacher,
it is always nice to explore new studios and hear new voices. Thanks for the inspiration.
I look forward to our visit next March and coming back to BV yoga.
With love and respect,”
