I have taken classes from CJ for over 7 years. During that time, my muscle tone, strength, balance, endurance, and flexibility have all gotten much better. I credit CJ with making the practice mentally interesting, physically challenging, and fun. When she leads us through series after series of asana flow, CJ simultaneously describes the positions, demonstrates several versions of the positions to challenge students at their level of proficiency, and works through series after series making sure to balance the exercises for each right and left. While she is doing this, she somehow is able to watch and guide individual students in their conformation to their achievable ideal. In each class, she progresses through various exercises moveing toward positions requiring progressively greater flexibility, or near the end of class, moving toward the final shivasana. Her classes are never repeated and always new and interesting.” I hold you as a trusted friend and confidant.
