I had been taking yoga for about six months. After my first class with Perri Institute teacher Callie Ritter, I figured out I was lacking in my foundations. Her yoga class builds you from the ground up and she makes sure that students understand and develop strong background knowledge of yoga principles. Her classes are the perfect combination of physical and mental challenge, as well as relaxation. This allows me to do a sort of mental retooling, enabling me to focus better, while at the same time being relaxed - something that six months ago, I never thought could be possible.

Before I started taking TaraMarie's class in 2007, I had practiced yoga for 8 years. I have been studying exclusively with TaraMarie because I find her teaching exceptional. Her classes are consistently motivational. And while each class must accommodate a variety of levels, she always manages to incorporate new challenges for advanced students, while providing basic instruction to new practitioners.

TaraMarie gave me the tools to bring my yoga practice to all facets of my life. Whether I'm navigating sun salutations, work induced stress or health crises, her guidance as a yoga teacher has been invaluable.

I walked into TaraMarie's class at a local gym as a near novice and knew right away that I'd met my teacher. I hired her for a series of one-on-one sessions to help me get started on the right foot with my yoga practice.  The experience was invaluable and worth every penny. I recommend her to all my friends who want to bring real depth and understanding to their practice.

Perri Institute yoga classes work well for me because they are calm and pleasant, but always challenging. I like the way the teachers give options for the postures, accommodating my level of experience or just the way my body might feel on any particular day. I appreciate being encouraged to experiment, for example to try using a yoga block in a posture just to see how it changes my body’s alignment, or to attempt a difficult posture and see how far I can get.
