"Just a note to thank you for the class in chair yoga at the Jewish Community Center of San Francisco. This class, to which I look forward every week, has helped me limber up to the point where I feel more alive. I am able to move more easily with less effort. I also appreciate that you encourage your students to continue doing, at least, some of these exercises at home...in order to increase their benefits. I do 2 or 3 movements most every day." -Abe, student in weekly Chair Yoga for seniors class, 2/2018

"I just finished an amazing four day Chair Yoga Teacher Training Class with Staci Dooreck, owner of SunLight Yoga, at the Sivananda Yoga Retreat on Paradise Island in the Bahamas. Stacie is a born teacher and her passion for bringing yoga to everyone through Chair Yoga, was evident in her passionate, patient and thorough teaching style. A must course for any yoga instructor or physical therapist interested in Chair Yoga as a therapeutic tool for his or her patients. Her vast experience has allowed her to bring together the influences of many yoga styles and lineages in addition to those of Swami Sivananda. You are given more than enough ideas to create your own chair yoga sequences. I cannot wait to start in with mine!" Emily Blaskey, Physical Therapist, Eau Claire, Wisconsin
