ONE OF THE BEST
I've taken many different yoga classes with a lot of different instructors. Ellen is definitely One of the Best.
FROM A YOGA TEACHER
Wonderful - Ellen puts the wonderful in The Wonder of Yoga.
She will inspire you and show you how yoga can make you
feel more alive. ~ Meg S
When I began "Easy Yoga Plus!" my goals were to practice
yoga without pain, to be aware of the positions my 77 year
old aging body should and should not attempt; and most
importantly, to use yoga to reduce tension, stress and ease
chronic pain. The practice has led me to understand that
the acquisition of these goals is an ongoing process. Each
class adds “golden nuggets” of learning to help me reach
these goals. There are many other benefits..., but In short,
"Easy Yoga Plus!" has been of great benefit mentally and
physically. I would encourage others to participate in
this class. ~ Dee S
Having taken "Easy Yoga Plus!" in-person and via Zoom,
I find my balance and posture have improved. I have also
learned the importance of breathing and meditation. The
Zoom experience works for me because it is a "live" class
at a specific time, which increases commitment. The other
advantage is I can get up and down from the floor in the
privacy of my home. ~ Jacqui S
I was so glad to discover "Easy Yoga Plus!" during the
early part of Covid. I find I am more flexible and more
aware of my body in space. I also appreciate the sense
of community that has been created amongst all the
participants of the class. ~ Anonymous
Zoom has kept our class together and even made it
stronger. Even though things have eased, I am glad to
remain on Zoom. ~John S
I had problems with my knee and back. Since starting
and continuing with yoga, I have noticed a great improve-
ment, have less pain, and am more mobile. The somatic
movements have added an additional benefit in training
my brain and my body to work together. ~ Wynona P
I enjoyed meeting people and doing yoga via Zoom
during the pandemic. Teachers are great. The somatic
"flows" have cured my shoulder issues. I started paying
more attention to my body alignment and movements.
Incorporating the chakras has been a addition as well.
Yoga and somatic flows is a big part of my life now.

I enjoyed meeting people and doing yoga via Zoom
during the pandemic. Teachers are great. ~ Paula W

As a cancer patient, "Easy Yoga Plus!" has been a life saver.
Linda is an exceptional person and exceptional teacher.

GOODMAN COMMUNITY CENTER STUDENTS
I love the gentle progressive strengthening movements.
My mile+ walk home from Goodman Center is always
peppier after an hour of yoga. ~Anonymous
Just a wonderful and relaxing and learning experience.
Looking forward to the next class. ~ Anonymous
Yoga is a way of love and light. ~ Anonymous
Yoga is very rewarding and healthful. Love the hour class.
Very good for body and soul! You learn how to position
yourself and about the benefits of the poses. At the end
of class I always feel energized and relaxed at the same
time. ~ Anonymous
Following two heart surgeries, "Easy Yoga Plus!" has helped
me mentally, emotionally, and physically. Wednesday yoga
is a highlight of every week. Not only do the comprehensive
exercises relax and tone my body, the internal and spiritual
aspects refresh and invigorate my mind and heart-center.
This is invaluable to my day-to-day living. Yes, yoga gradually
but consistently takes us on a wondrous path, which you
can choose to journey at your own pace within the current
boundaries your body will allow. Go for it! ~ Bob Bates
Ellen's love of and belief in the benefits of yoga are infectious.
The class keeps growing because this shows through. The
greatest benefit to me has been my overall gain in total body
strength. My core strength has helped me stay upright on
winter walks. As an older (73) woman, the improvement in
my posture is a great benefit. ~ Anonymous
Sounds contradictory but I come out of class feeling relaxed
and energized at the same time. My doctor likes the drop
in my blood pressure - down 30 points in 6 months. A great
teacher. ~ Anonymous
I have an injured knee. PT recommended yoga. They were
right - I am much better! ~ Anonymous
Stretches are wonderful; love the relief gained from the ball
techniques on various tender spots in the feet. Love trying
to balance in the poses and identifying weaknesses to
work on. ~ Anonymous
FITCHBURG SENIOR CENTER STUDENTS
A gentle voice and an unique approach to mindfulness and balance - continues to enrich my life. ~ Joan Bloodworth
"Easy Yoga Plus!" is a class geared toward seniors and the
challenges unique to us. Balance and strengthening poses
are stressed with beginning, intermediate, and advanced
poses, offered and suggested dependent on the person's
abilities. I love this class and appreciate the incorporated
mindfulness along with the knowledge of the practice of
yoga that I gain. ~ Ann R
Ellen is very knowledgeable, especially explaining the
movement and poses in her class. It is much more than
other yoga teachers say and do. ~Michael R
