Testimonials

I have attended yoga classes for most of my adult life. Six years ago I sustained a spinal cord injury, leaving me a quadriplegic. Recently, I started yoga classes with Vanessa Hazzard. I have been amazed at her creativity. In spite of my physical limitations we have been able to perform a modified Sun Salutation, and achieve many other positions. Her therapeutic hands have allowed me to recover from many previous injuries. Meeting with her is one of the high points of my week.
