    I joined this retreat as an "outsider" not ever having met you nor practiced at your studio. You and the other yogis accepted me with open arms and supported me unconditionally through my journey of self-discovery. With Sedona being my 5th yoga retreat, I can confidently say that this has been by far the best retreat EVER.
    From the beautiful home to the bonding breakfasts, hiking, and other field trips, this retreat mixed yoga, meditation, time in the beautiful outdoors and the epic "bam bam"
    The mix of activities gave each individual a setting that allowed for deep introspection, healing, laughter, and letting go of stress. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

    I'm sitting in the crystal shop and a sign right in front of me says: "Success is not the key to happiness. Happiness is the key to success. If you love what you are doing you will be successful." - Bhudda
    Looking at you, I see success - you exude joy, peace, and clearly love what you are doing. I am so thankful to be able to join along for the ride - even after just 1 class! I knew this trip would be amazing - you are amazing! Thank you for teaching me how to make yoga a practice instead of just a class or workout. Thank you for this wonderful experience and all the memories of Sedona... especially encouraging my up & down Cathedral Rock. Can't wait to see where the next part of our journey leads!

    Thank you for giving us this opportunity to explore ourselves deeper, make new connections, and learn more about the way yoga embodies itself in us and in our surroundings. I have grown as a person and yogi over the past week & could not be more grateful. Climbing to the top Cathedral Rock was something I had never imagined myself doing, ad yet, I did!
    Being able to connect and discuss deep personal topics with my fellow retreaters and watching them all grow with me has been extremely rewarding. Can't wait for the next one!

    As, I write this, there are so many emotions welling up inside of me, but most of all is gratitude. This retreat took me out of my comfort zone and into places I didn't know existed. This was, at the age of 60 a very personal challenge for me. Thank you for guiding me to go deeper, to beleive in myself & to trust in myself.
    Thank you for everything you did to make this retreat a wonderful expereince that I will never forget. This beautiful & sacred land will forever be a part of me. May you be happy, may you be healthy, mayour light continue to shine brightly!

    Last August I took the first step in a journey that has changed my life. Turning sixty, I felt I needed something other than lifting weights and cardio. Yoga always intrigued me but hey, yoga is for girls, right?
    Wrong.
    After my first class, well, this was as tough as any workout I had ever experienced. I feel better in mind and body. In addition, losing over 20 pounds was a unexpected benefit, as well as relief of chronic lower back pain.
    I cannot say enough about the instructors, each bringing their own personal touch to their classes and as a beginner they made me feel welcome and at ease from day one.
    Thank you Yoga Dosha.

    "Every lesson brings a new experience and perspective, I am feeling more balanced, harmonized and my inner state feels calm. I have a tremor that my doctors have not been able to diagnose. I'm grateful to Phebe for her inspiration and advice, she has guided me to practice certain yoga positions, and the tremor has been improving! I am also grateful to share time with a group of people who carry an inspiring spirit - it keeps me feeling stronger! No matter what class you choose, this place is good for your mind & body."

    Last year I had a sharp pain starting from my back down my right leg.  I learned from my friends that this was my psciatic nerve acting up.  I could barely walk, sitting and laying down were uncomfortable too.  Instead of going to a doctor I decided to try yoga . Thank the Lord!!!!!

    As a man I was skeptical, I liked working out but didn't believe "stretching" was of such importance . After just two classes though the psiatic pain was gone and I decided to keep going to yoga classes . While at first it was kind of awkward clumsily stretching in front of limber people , this soon passed as I realized that little by little I was becoming more flexible .
    At first I would go to one class a week, but soon it was up to 4-5.  In a year my body transformed in a way lifting and cardio at the gym could never accomplish. My posture, cardiovascular system, core (six pack on a good day), shoulder alignment, everyday sitting, walking and standing have all improved ten-fold.  More importantly however, yoga has improved my mood and general well being .
     The instructors at yoga dosha are all fantastic and uniquely good in their own special way.  Always welcoming and never intimidating, Phebe, Kelly , and Alaina thank you for all of your efforts ,  Much love and respect!!

    I recently became an empty-nester and became recommitted to taking care of myself.  Yoga is a perfect answer for all my goals for this new 2.0 life I plan to live - to learn to relax more (I’m a crazy type A high stress individual), improve my posture, reconnect with my body and my own needs and get in shape. I absolutely LOVE Phebe and the lovely instructors at Yoga Dosha; they have incredible patience with this 53 year old and support me as a beginner and with all my limitations. Recently I injured my rotator cuff and they’ve given me customized poses and instructions to help me. I’ve really seen a difference already in both my mind and body. Thank you.

    Prior to starting private yoga sessions with Phebe last May, I’ve experienced low back pain that prevented me from doing the things I love, like shopping, baking and cooking. I lived on Advil, which only provided some relief. After a few months of yoga twice a week I started to feel some improvement. I never thought the day would come that I would actually forget I ever had back issues, but it has.  Phebe’s personal attention has given me my life back to enjoy!!!

    When I was a little younger I loved yoga and what it did for my mind and body. As I got older; a career, a move, a relationship, and many of the other things that life throws at you popped up and I stopped my practice. I realized in May that I wasn't my best self. I had gained a lot of weight, my energy level was low, and I was anxious all the time. I knew I needed a change so it was then that I took my first class at Yoga Dosha. That first class was all I needed! I left knowing that I had started my journey to wellness and for the first time in a long time I felt grounded. Not only do all the teachers at Yoga Dosha give a great class, they make you feel like you are family. For the first time in a long time I truly love myself! The sense of love and community I feel when I go to class has been a major support on my journey to wellness and I am forever grateful that I found Yoga Dosha. I want to give a special thank you to Phebe and Kaitlin as they have been integral teachers and mentors on the path to wellness.
