I thought it was a good extensive accessible course. It was very nice to get to know all facets of yoga. A very nice build-up with a good balance between all the exercises and information about the background of yoga. After each lesson I had lots of energy and I was ready to face the rest of the week. It’s also very nice that the groups are small!

I really like that Tessa also talks about the background of yoga, in addition to the exercises we do. Then you also know why you do something. I think it’s a varied program, in which we do some new exercises every week. Each class has a different content, which is of value to me. The breathing exercises are of great value to me. Tessa helps with movements that do not quite work out and looks good at your body.

The program is broader than just the physical aspect, which I really have experienced as pleasant and instructive. I really appreciated the breathing exercises, meditation and body scan, poses and character of Tessa. I think Tessa’s openness and clarity throughout made me feel comfortable and feel at ease. The tea afterwards was a good way to finish the lesson. But what I especially really appreciated was the explanation of the eight limbs of yoga and practicing with the breath and meditation. In these 8 weeks I’ve been able to connect more with myself and that’s the coolest thing I’ve learned from the course.
