Praise for Yoga for You
Looks do not tell you about fitness. I am still grateful to people in Wichita who helped me get over the 'fear' of going to the gym. Which lead to becoming a better swimmer and studying yoga. People who actually understand and respect bodies don't shame the person in them. Many thanks to Susan LeVineone of the best yoga instructor on the planet. We actually met at the racquetball club when she corrected how I was placing my hands on a tread mill.

At Yoga for You, I found what I was looking for. When I look for a teacher, I look for someone who has my best interests at heart and who takes into consideration my physical abilities and potential. When I look inward, I need a guide who has been there themselves to help navigate the way. When I look for a group class or private session, I seek a peaceful and safe environment where I am accepted as I am. The space where I practice is important, too.

Susan's practice of the teachings of Yoga is an inspiration to me. She continues her studies with enthusiasm and devotion. Susan is excellent in translating the teachings of Yoga with ease. As a Yoga teacher myself, I am honored to have Susan as a mentor.

If I were to say a few words about my experience with yoga in my life, I would have to simply say because of Susan Levine and her inspiration, support, and incredible knowledge and teaching, I am able to share yoga and carry the message forward.

A few years ago, I thought about trying yoga. I asked several friends and acquaintances about teachers. One name, Susan Levine, kept being repeated. I started taking Susan's yoga class approximately one year ago, and am thrilled with every aspect of Susan's classes. She is knowledgeable, well prepared for every class, and makes all of her students feel welcome and special through her kind and gentle ways. I have tried other yoga classes and have found them to be lacking when compared to classes at Yoga for You. I wish Susan continued success as she shares her knowledge of yoga and joy of life with her students. Check out her great website at creativeyogasolutions.com, or, better yet, go check out one of her classes!
Bill is a CPA, and the first three-and-a-half months of the year are extremely 'taxing:' mentally and physically exhausting. He has exercised regularly every morning for years, but this year has done 20 minutes of meditation and 20 minutes of yoga to start his day. In my observation, he has been much cheerier this year, and he says his stress level is greatly reduced.
As for me, I recently had to unexpectedly spend nine days in Houston doing hospital duty during my brother's recovery from surgery. By doing my meditation, I feel I was able to start the days with a clear head, and I would come back to it during the day -even just for a moment- to keep the tension from building. My yoga space was limited, but I managed to do enough - which was also very helpful. I was able to focus on smiling more and remembering to look for the divine in those I encountered. Many thanks to you, Susan, for teaching me to keep it simple and to take it with me throughout the day.

Susan, I wanted to say thank you again for all the wonderful help you have given me. I also have been very disciplined in my practice of meditation; though my mind seems to wander, more days than not I seem to have found a part of my inner-Self I had yet to consciously shed light on. I have found myself looking upon things differently, like the small things in life that actually stand out, and I see more of the goodness in others. I also find that my day-to-day life is less stressful, I have become more content in my life, and I have also found a new love for myself that I have never felt before. I used to look in the mirror and see a lot of negative, but each day I try to find something more about myself I appreciate. Each day it gets a little bit easier to be less critical and more loving towards who I am.
The more I meditate, I find new things about myself: like the other day, I found the anger and hurt that I thought I had let go of was still within me. I actually began to let it out - I felt as though with each deep breath I took, I breathed in positive things and released the negative. I have never felt as good as I do right now. I have also found my beliefs have strengthened, and I stand stronger in what I believe. The other day I was beginning to do the tree pose and I felt energy within me - I can't describe it. I hadn't felt that way before. I feel it every time I do the pose - it's as though I'm linked to something within me that gives me extra strength to do anything I need to do and face anything I need to face.
Thank you; I know you do not know it, but you have helped me in many ways. Thank you for helping me live a lifestyle that helps me grow and love who I am and everything around me.
