Senior Chair Yoga Testimonials

“Andrew is sensitive to the needs of older citizens. He is gentle and patient with his students. He has an agreeable personality with a good sense of humor.  He is always on time and he communicates well, for example, explaining how to hold a particular pose when the need arises. He willingly accommodates all students regardless of their level of knowledge of yoga. He shows concern and compassion for each student’s needs. He answers questions effectively.

My strength, balance, and flexibility were severely compromised two years ago.  I enrolled in a yoga class on the advice of my doctor.  In the past five weeks, I have seen an improvement in my ability to balance and in greater flexibility in my hips. Of particular help have been the poses of cat/cow, warrior 1 and 2, pigeon, triangle, revolving yin and yang, eagle arm,  goddess, downward dog, and tree, to name just a few.

I am getting a great deal out of Andrew Lee’s  fall 2015 class, and I am looking forward to signing up for his January 2016 class.  As a former night school GED teacher myself, I am quite satisfied with this young professional’s ability to teach yoga. I highly recommend him as an certified yoga instructor.” – Mary LoudinSenior Chair Yoga Student in West Milford, NJ
