From doing weekly Bowspring privates with Dorie, I immediately noticed the difference in my balance and posture. I am an older woman who still horseback rides and competes in dressage. The bowspring yoga is not just studio poses. It is applicable to all sports as well as standing sitting and walking. It is all about alignment and balance . Now I sit and walk tall, shoulders back, breathing more deeply and an with an open chest. I can even stand on one foot. Dorie is a wonderful teacher. Knowledgeable, supportive and great fun.

I have been very fortunate to begin my yoga practice with Dorie. Previous attempts in various classes have resulted in back pain so I was very concerned about trying again. Dorie quickly determined that my form would likely cause pain. I committed to working with her until I could feel confident that my form would keep me safe in class. Since then, I’ve found so much value in private sessions that I’ve chosen to continue our work together. Not only has she helped me with form, she has also helped me identify how my overachieving, perfectionistic tendencies influence my practice. She has helped me begin to take a more compassionate approach, one that helps in my life off of the mat as well, not to mention that my severe, tension headaches are virtually nonexistent. Dorie is caring, committed AND a lot of fun! I highly recommend working with her. ”

“For many reasons, I had decided it was time to bring yoga into my life. I wasn’t sure how to start, and then I was put into contact with Dorie and all was well. Dorie has helped me in so many ways....she has not only shown me the physical movements of yoga, but she has shared with me the ways to treat myself and focus myself while doing it. None of this would have happened if I was one of 12 in a class, so while it was an investment financially, it has been the best investment in myself that I could have made. I am so grateful for having met Dorie and for having benefited from her amazing one-on-one teaching.”
