Yoga Matrika is the ONLY yoga studio that has never made me feel uncomfortable in my flexibility or how I’m positioned, but I always leave classes feeling re-energized, yet, feeling very tranquil.

This prenatal guide is easy to follow yet complete in its simplicity. The tenets of peace and simplicity are essential to a quieting yoga practice and this book models this beautifully. Having taught prenatal yoga for many years, I will highly recommend this to students to use at home to further onsite prenatal classes. Sharon is a thoughtful and passionate teacher and without a doubt she believes strongly in using yoga for a healthy and happy birth experience. Her truth is evident.Joanne V.
The atmosphere is friendly and accepting of where ever the student is in their life. I have gained physical, emotional, spiritual confidence through practice with all of the instructors at Yoga Matrika. Thank you!J., Matrika Student
