Yely always gives clear, compassionate instruction which has encouraged me to practice more mindfully everyday!

The teacher in this type of class is important (I think) because their instruction sets the alignment, pace, and depth/limit of the work. I trust Yely because she is so intuitive (compassionate) and skilled to this end. I feel lucky to work with her.

Yely has given me tools to explore my own alone times on the mat and her encouragement has led me to begin to look deeper into the practice of yoga.

This was a wonderful experience for me. I am just getting back into yoga after being out for years. Yely was attentive and demonstrated the way to do yoga moves, but also the why for these movements! What a great teacher!!

Very basic which is perfect for the beginner. Yely is very patient and eager to share her knowledge and experience. I have a growing love for Yoga.

Yely is exquisitely sensitive to what students bring to class. She is a good listener and responsive to what she sees. I feel that she knows me and appreciates my being there and is responsive to my questions and any physical limitations that I describe and remembers these too (!) Remarkable personalization it feels like without direct reference to any person in the class.
