-To appreciate the wonderful impact that Graced With Yoga has had on my life requires an understanding of what brought me to yoga in the first place. I was shocked when I was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in June 2015. One of the first of many questions involved the best kind of exercise for my new condition. The best recommended exercise from every reputable source I had was yoga. I started looking around for classes, and when I was reviewing the St. Clement bulletin after mass one week, Graced With Yoga jumped out at me. I thought I’d give it a shot. What a great decision!
In the first few months of my diagnosis, I tried classes at a number of places. The only one that felt right was Graced With Yoga. The Christian/Catholic feel to the instruction and class just made me feel welcomed and comfortable in a very new activity. Dina is simply amazing! Such an open, caring person. What an amazing instructor! I cannot say enough good things about Dina. Also, the Graced With Yoga community is just wonderful. The other people who go to Dina’s class are just as wonderful as she is. So welcoming and just good people. This sense of community with my fellow yogis is a great draw for me class after class. Not only does the yoga feel amazing in a wonderful environment, but also I simply have been made to feel comfortable. I always look forward to going to yoga with Dina. It has a positive impact on my life every time I do. I cannot recommend it highly enough!! Marina P.
