“Thank you for making our first Healthy Heart Day Retreat a great success! The participants thoroughly enjoyed the day and I hope we do it again.”
C. Horner, Exercise Physiologist
“Your ability to teach cardiac rehab personnel how to teach Cardiac Yoga even if they had never done yoga before is masterful. We have successfully implemented cardiac yoga classes using our current rehab personnel who went through your teacher training program. I compliment you on your achievement with this program and fully support its widespread implementation.
I found the experience so personally beneficial that I try to do yoga and a brief meditation everyday before work. So I not only recommend your program to facilitate teaching patients these positive lifestyle changes, but also for the healthcare workers with their daily stress loads.”
