Therapeutic Yoga   -

It is always rather wonderful to receive feedback for doing something that you love. And that is how I feel, amazed and grateful to each person who has shared this practice with me over the years ~ from Hannah Schoenbach, my first teacher in 1975, to the last person with whom I practiced this morning.

The comments below come from people in every walk of life; the youngest "voice" is 17, the most senior, now 88 years old.

Hear what people are saying...

Dear Linda,

The class today made me feel so wonderful.  I have felt hunched over, sore and in pain all over since I tore my ACL, and this is the first time I have felt relief.  I cannot thank you enough for providing a safe space for me to practice in.  I only wish I could take a class with you more often!

"I just wanted to thank you for such a fabulous class yesterday. Having missed three weeks I almost forgot how good I feel after class. For the first time in three years, I was able to go from plank position to downward dog without pain shooting from lower back down each leg to my ankles. The stretching is so important for my hip issues and obviously my lower back too.

You are a master at what you do and I know I speak for many when I say how lucky I feel to have you working with our staff. Have a great day."

Your kind and gentle way, along with your vast knowledge make the classes warm and enlightening, in a myriad of ways. xxx LR

First, THANK YOU for yesterday.  The timing and the topic of the class could not have been more timely.  I did well on my test today, and I attribute a big part of that to gaining perspective and calming down through the class.  So so excited for the HUGE things to come!
Big hug :)   Y

Good morning Ms. Lang. 

On behalf of the Internal Medicine Residency Program, I wanted to extend my appreciation to you for conducting the wonderful yoga session for our interns.  It was a big hit! They really enjoyed it!
We would love to invite you back to some of our other retreats, maybe for some of the faculty. Thanks again and enjoy your week.

Hi Linda,
I have to thank you again for coming to our GW Spirituality and Health Interest Group session. It's everything I hoped for and more. I spoke with some of the students who attended after class, and they were blown away. One student said she wishes she had a recording of your voice because it instantly soothed her. Another said she wished she took notes because you spurred so many great ideas for her future practice, and what she wants out of life. Another said she wishes you were her sensei. I have felt all these feelings since meeting you and am happy that other students here are learning about you and your talents.
I hope you know how much I appreciate you and your generosity. I just wanted to share with you some feedback and look forward to continuing to work with you.

Hi Linda,
Not to jump to conclusions too quickly, but I feel really good right now. :) Lots of space in my lumbar spine and a lifted spirit. Thanks so much for the time you spent with me today and your insight into the workings of my body. I feel that I have so, so much to learn about all that we discussed, but hopefully bit by bit I can learn to feel what's going on and what's going wrong. Thanks for getting me started.
                                     Best regards,          AL, Arlington  

I want to express my deep gratitude to you and ensure you know the great joy we have when you come to our home and practice Yoga with us.  I truly am grateful for your generosity and the spirit of love and wholeness that you bring to the practice of Yoga. It has had a tremendous impact on the children.
With deep respect,                                SH, Silver Spring

You really helped me get stronger and more flexible during the crew season. Next year I am going to be a captain of the cross country team and I was wondering if there was anyway we could have a practice on Sundays. Thank you.

Thank you for touching base... My knee is completely better. I think my sessions with you really helped.  The orthopedic surgeon told me to go to PT...but I think the yoga and practicing what we did actually did the trick...Thank you for all your help and I hope that when things settle down I will be able to go to yoga classes and will definitely keep you in mind regarding referrals.

Thanks for class today; I thought it was great. As an athlete who was skeptical of yoga when he was actually fit, I am excited as an out-of-shape coach to see what yoga can do for the team, the athletes, and myself. Thanks again.

Linda, I feel so good from our practice today: calm, energized, focused - wow! Thanks.

Daniel and I wanted to let you know that we really enjoy your classes.  They are perfect. Especially this morning.  We enjoy sharing the time with you.      LN, Bethesda

No way can I miss the Meditation. Thursday evening was cosmic.

Thank you for your kind thoughts. My spirit is improving each day as I embrace and practice my mantra of speaking the truth so that I can be my true self. I am looking forward to our practice with gratitude and friendship,
                                                                                          SS, Chevy Chase

I will take this opportunity to tell you how much I miss you and your teaching style. I have been to some yoga classes at the gym, and the energetic, spiritual aspects of the practice are SORELY missing!   I am so encouraged by the fact that you are considering doing a once-a-month Saturday class in Germantown!  Love, PB, Germantown


My daughter LOVED your class yesterday. She was just bubbling
over with enthusiasm when I picked her up! This doesn't happen too often, so I am thrilled. It is just so important these days to learn the concepts of balance and acceptance and to focus. She'll be able to use these skills for the rest of her life. Thanks for bringing yoga to Pyle.

So, after a rotten day and a slow dinner, I came home and looked again at the CD, which I had forgot to mention when I  wrote you yesterday. It was exactly what I needed.  I listened to the first section about breathing, and followed the instructions while lying in bed, not sitting, and I was able to relax completely and go to sleep. You always hit the right button for me .

We are thrilled that you are back and can't wait to see you. We will be there on Friday. I think we are all stressed to the max with all the travel and work so we can't be more delighted that you are back in town. Woohoo!                             RJ, Bethesda
I've been been thinking of you a lot and here's why; you said something in yoga class the other night that really has resonated with me. You were talking about how if you "just move a bit," it's better.. something very profound about that for me, because I see it in my life also. Very helpful, you.                                  LDR, Bethesda
