Pam has an amazing ability to sense what her yoga students need each day, and to match her practice to the needs of the group. No two yoga sessions are the same. She keeps an eye on each student’s movements and gives positive guidance to the group without pointing out or correcting individuals’ imperfections. Yoga with Pam always includes new challenges and familiar elements that leave me feeling energized and balanced.
