Live Stream Avita is a Beautiful Thing
Thanks for the heads up on time change to M, W, F classes. I’m looking forward to an earlier start! midst all the swirling happening on the planet right now I think it’s a beautiful thing that you and Lori are working together to Live Stream Avita. It’s very fitting that she is demonstrating as you teach. I hope you are getting excellent feedback from other students. Please let me know if you need any assistance in any way. I assume Pippa is there supporting Admin duties.
If you think of something I can do, please reach out to me. I am into the 4th intense week of figuring out and keeping afloat my business. Avita practice has been a much needed and nurturing self care component.
I am very grateful to you for providing the practice, words of wisdom and heart centered encouragement. You are providing a vital service to so many and it’s such a gift.
How Important Avita Has Been To Us
We send a quick note to let you know how important your Avita has been to us. It has created a sense of normalcy in our lives. We continue to “attend” 3 days a week, just like before CV-19. We never miss.
Thank you and Namaste.
I Get So Much From Each Class
I want to let you know how much I appreciate your classes. It’s so wonderful to be able practice at home–and be with you and Lori. I feel your dedication and get so much from each class. I feel your pain in working out all the electronic kinks. Hang in there and remember we’re working with you through it all. Thank you SO MUCH!
Love and Namaste.
Your Voice is Reassuring
I miss coming to class in person but find listening to your voice on the online classes is so reassuring….I can still reach a nice meditative state…..
Hope you are doing well…staying safe and healthy.
Feeling Wonderful Changes in my 63 yr-old Body
I am currently in my second month of your classes and feeling wonderful changes in my 63 yr old body.
My depression shifted since practicing Avita Online
I want to thank you so much for these streaming live classes. I got so depressed after discovering that the studio had closed, and that there would be no more classes for an undetermined period of time.
Then, when I learned you would be teaching live on-line: I wept. I am so grateful to be able to continue attending your classes. I have risen out of my depression in the largest part, because I can continue to do Avita with you. I, like you, feel a personal and close intimacy, while doing these streamed classes.
Thank you so—so—so—much.
Pure gift to my arthritic hip
Having these online videos have been such a blessing during this time of isolation and has made a huge difference in my arthritic hip.
Gratitude for streaming Avita classes during this pandemic
Hello, Jeff and Lori 🤗
Gratitude for streaming your Avita classes during this pandemic is what I want to express in this email! With all the craziness going on outside, doing Avita 3 to 4 times a week is helping me stay calm on the inside… my happy place 🤗
Thanks for offering red classes! I just finished the class you did yesterday and it felt really good… especially since I just finished lots of gardening! As you suggested, I do plan to do 1 red, 1 orange, and 2 green classes a week.
Hope you and your family are staying healthy,
Loving the Avita class levels!
Thank you so much for adding the “levels” to the Avita classes! (Thank Lori for her red class demo!!) I almost emailed you last week to ask if you could point me to specific Avita replay classes that moved a little deeper than the basics. I was missing practicing Kaiut sequences where I felt the work deep into the center and the joints.
I like having the ability to choose livestream or replays AND to mix in the Avita style with more traditional vinyasa, so it has been great that Yoga Loft affords those choices. I have been a yoga student for 20 plus years and stumbled on Kaiut (in all of its permutations) when it came to Boulder years ago. I was a bit bummed when Kaiut went to the “franchise” model, so Avita/Yoga Loft filled that niche for me.
Recently, however, with the Avita classes, I felt like maybe I was just tuning in to “lite” classes (and I was questioning whether that’s all Avita offered was “lite”)…so I am excited to discover I can get my Amanda and Mykel “fix” AND mix in lighter/deeper Avita sequences…. all in one place!
Thank you for helping us all stay healthy.
My neck and shoulder felt better after the first class!
My best friend since college, Helene Rottenberg, who lives in Detroit, just signed up for Avita Online. She has been an Iyangar teacher for over 30 years. Her health issues for more than the last three years started with chronic shoulder/arm/neck pain (repetitive motion from playing classical guitar and bone spurs in the shoulder) and was followed by surgery two years ago after all therapies didn’t work. She has weakness on one side of her body (either from the shoulder or possible Parkinson’s). I have talked to her about Avita many times. I had hoped on her next visit she would come to class. I sent her a link to Avita Online this week and she signed up. She told me her neck and shoulder felt better after the first class! Of course it’s the long run that matters, but I am so grateful that you have made this possible.
In a New State of Cleaned Health
One of my close friends, Philip, sent me this thoughtful email after only 3 classes. He gave me permission to share this with you (below). I am humbled & grateful.
Thanks expressed in mere words are not adequate for the gratitude I have now experienced after three sessions of Avita Yoga.
To learn the methods by attending your classes, slowing down the mind and body to truly listen all the way down from the mind through the muscles, nerves and bones… all this is life changing.
A very special thing happened on my trip to the Cabin this trip…I had so many plants packed in the car I completely forgot my clothes bag which had my gabapentin for my nervous system (peripherial neuropathy). I had been taking it for 3-4 years, and now am weening myself from the drug. A week of not having it and aided by Tylenol at night, my new Avita Yoga, I find myself in a new state of cleaned health. The last two nights not even the Tylenol was needed. And best of all I find my mind, like the repetitive learning driving through the landscape I remember to stop and mindfully do a learned exercise that you have taught me.
I cannot thank you enough .
Everything in the world is suddenly OK
When I begin the class and I hear your voice, everything in the world is suddenly ok.
Avita Online; a mainstay of my self-care routine
Avita Online has become one of the mainstays of my self-care routine!! Today, I also did the Stimulate Your Immune System class! Doing the work, no matter where my head is when I first put my legs up on the wall, shifts my brain along with my body to a greater feeling of well-being.
Just wanted to say THANK YOU!!
This online practice is saving my body and soul
Dear Jeff, This online practice is saving my body and soul. I took your classes when I lived in Boulder, and integrated them into my daily practice. But now, as a nurse, the suffering of this time, has been overwhelming, and just like in the studio, your voice reaches me and says “it’s ok to feel restless and racing, just try to settle in.”
Sometimes I cannot sustain an hour, but whatever I can do, feels like a gift. I cannot thank you enough. I truly feel like your voice and the wisdom of these shapes are keeping my immunity and heart going. Sometimes with the release of different shapes, the tears flow, but calmly, restoratively. Making me think I will get through this with light still in my eyes.
