What you’ll find in all of Hope’s classes is inclusion and equality. Everyone is welcome and everyone belongs. Her classes are about finding the flow at your own pace, and being present with yourself. Her classes are safe, fun, and you leave class feeling calm and grounded.
What I appreciate most about Hope’s teaching is her ability to create a safe space for all bodies and abilities. Her flows seamlessly balance poses that both offer challenge & support and help active release. You leave class feeling strengthened and centered in your practice.
Hope came the morning of my cousin’s wedding and did some relaxing yoga with a small group of us. She even gave us some breathing techniques to remember throughout the day. She was so professional and punctual and worked with us in a small Manhattan hotel room! She helped us to relax and bond and my cousin felt great afterward! Love Hope!
Highly empathetic, engaging and humble, Hope’s approach to teaching yoga continues to inspire and enrich my personal practice and understanding of yoga philosophy. Every class of hers that I’ve engaged with has left me feeling more attuned to my body’s needs and enhanced my trust in its inherent wisdom.
Hope introduced me to all of the well known benefits of yoga by designing a bespoke programme for me that benefitted my ailments immensely, always in a safe way. She did so much more than that though as she took care of my mind, body and spirit as she educated, encouraged and supported me to achieve things physically I would have never thought possible.
My personal yoga session with Hope was exactly what I wanted and needed. She was very responsive to my requests for preferred pace, offering wonderful adjustments in each pose. I was left feeling perfectly stretched, challenged, and refreshed in all the best ways.
