Sweet lady, good class - I had never practiced yoga in my life and she taught me a fair amount. Strict about being to class on time, but fair because class is pass/fail based on attendance.

Just show up to class. No outside work!

Looking back at the old reviews I wonder if she's changed...
She's not a difficult teacher, but she's a very intense person which doesn't lend itself well to yoga in my opinion. She does have a lot of expertise and she'll teach you how to do poses correctly (which is really important so you don't injure yourself), but her attitude towards yoga is strange and didn't really allow the relaxation and mindfulness aspects to come through. She also tends to go on long tangents at the beginning of class which waste time and really weren't valuable for me. I appreciate that she allows you to indicate if you want hands-on adjustments because consent is really important! So kudos to her for that. I have to say I did feel really prepared for taking non-Barnard yoga classes because she spent so much time making sure we were doing poses correctly.

No HW, but you can't miss too many classes because then you don't get credit.

Please keep in mind that this review is more than 5 years old.

She's awesome, very understanding and guides the beginners into the ideology of yoga rather than the physical aspect of it alone. I loved going to her class because she encouraged us to achieve goals without pushing our own limits, and it was extremely relaxing and rejuvenating. She is an excellent teacher, I now feel confident in going to other yoga classes.
