Testimonials re Virtual Classes:
Our world is a crazy place right now. We have all had to readjust in various ways. Yoga classes have moved from the studio to the internet. Though it is not the same as being with our beloved “JO,” you have successfully mastered the ability to give instruction, pay attention to those in the class and leave us with a gem or several. Thank you Susan🙏
I am so grateful for you and our online zoom classes during these trying times. Classes are wonderful because I know your voice and your instructions are the same. The familiarity is comforting and easier for these classes. I am learning to listen much more especially since my iPhone screen is small. I need that anyway! The hour goes by so quickly! The home practice class was exceptional. Thank you for going out of your comfort zone to set up zoom and teach in another realm. You rock! Cindy

*Joanne Boccassini’s yoga class is superb! She is truly knowledgeable and is very detailed in explaining the poses to her students. Her classes are very small, tight knit groups which are perfect for learning — we get 100% of her attention. I feel very safe in her classes. Her enthusiasm about yoga and her genuine interest in people’s well being is reassuring. I have taken many different styles of Yoga classes and all of them have hurt my lower back, but Jo’s Iyengar yoga class does not and in fact relieves my lower back pain. I strongly recommend her classes. Marilda N.
*I have been Jo’s student for over a year. She is an excellent teacher who takes time and care with each student to help each of us do our personal best. Jo works on each posture, explaining both the physical aspect and the “spiritual “ aspect. She is a wonderful teacher and a very special person.
*I was in a slip and fall accident and had a lot of trouble walking. I couldn’t drive my car. A friend drive me to Jo’s studio weekly. I was wearing a tens machine and a back brace and still struggling to walk. Over time I no longer needed the tens machine or the back brace. Jo gave me back my life. She worked hard with me and I learned from Jo how to help myself. She’s a wonderful teacher. Rita L.
*Being 1 of 3 in IYCPB classes is the best. Jo watches each of us with eyes in back of her also. We are so fortunate to have her boutique studio here locally. Each class is different and we work the whole body. Jo knows my body better than I do. My goal is to learn and feel my body better.Awareness is coming slowly but surely. My yoga is so good for me physically, mentally and spiritually. It is my gift to me. Jo thank you for teaching with your heart and soul 150%! CLS
*I have been a yoga student of Jo’s for several years and deeply appreciate all that she has taught me as my yoga teacher. Her classes are intentionally small so each student receives Jo’s attention, assistance, and careful analysis of his/her physical strengths and weaknesses. Jo adapts the postures and movements to each student’s specific and unique needs. She is an excellent and extremely knowledgeable Iyengar yoga teacher. S. Sicam
