I was explaining to someone the other day when talking about your class, it’s just the perfect combination. You have such a warm personality, great enthusiasm, positive energy and a fun sense of humor, plus you keep things interesting and challenging. I like your hands on adjustments and I like your words especially what you say at the end of class.
Dear C: Thank you for your inspiration and spiritual guidance. It’s more than yoga in your class and I appreciate your instruction!
That was FUN! You are a great teacher, with great energy!
Today I was told one of the teacher trainees at a studio where I teach really loves my classes and has been using some of my wording as she begins to practice teach. I was instantly filled with gratitude toward the amazing women who nurtured, guided, and inspired me through my teacher training. Thank you Erica, Chintamani, Allison, and Randi!

Thank YOU, Chintamani!!! It was informative, soothing to the soul and enjoyable. You make it all easy. [meditation workshop]
I love your classes! You are one of the best yoga teachers that I have ever met. Compassionate and Loving
Thank you SO MUCH. After helping me with my alignment in chaturanga and updog, I have been pain free! Amazing!
Chintamani’s yoga classes are both challenging and fun. While some yoga classes can be repetitive, Chintamani’s pose sequencing is always creative and varied. Her sense of humor, generous spirit and eclectic taste in music set the tone for a thoroughly enjoyable class. I always leave her classes feeling calm, strong and lighthearted.
Your strength and gentleness combined in your teaching moved and inspired me in class. Thank you.
Truly, I believe we really need to acknowledge those who are putting much of themselves forward in service to others..and your Light shines through so brightly in your classes..gentle acceptance, encouragement, yet at the same time, pushing through for more inner strength and integrity in the same breath.
You are a Passionate and Gifted teacher, with a unique energy and resonance given to your students. Deepest Gratitude for your presence and daily commitment to giving health and wellness to those around you.
It was a great experience. I was able to relax, let go, and connect with myself. I experienced lots of joy as a result of the session. I was able to open up and speak from the heart. At the end of the session, I felt more energized and grounded. My mind was quiet. Chintamani is a very talented therapist with a great, wonderful heart. Her presence, her encouragement, her support are extremely helpful and a true gift for her clients.
I think you were right about the energizing effects of the inversion (the shoulder stand being one I have not mastered in the past). Psychological or not, I am enjoying the energy burst, unfortunately, I still had the energy to snack on chocolate. Great, varied class. Thanks.
The session brought my awareness to how to better support my body and help it heal without the mental judgments I have held. A shining light.
It was pretty awesome. I feel much more relaxed and centered than when I arrived. Chintamani intuitively knew where my trigger spots were and honed in on areas where I was holding stress/tension. The work allowed me to get to a place of quiet and relaxation that I wouldn’t have been able to get to on my own.
The session was wonderful! It took me through a complete mental and physical process and helped me work through a presenting problem physically, mentally and in spirit.
I feel that this type of session complements the yoga practice. This should be part of the overall yoga practice to make it well-rounded.
