“Ron teaches with intelligence.  His adjustments suit the individual needs of the students.  I personally found his adjustments were the best I have received from any teacher.  I have very high regard for him as an exceptional teacher.” Elizabeth Connolly, Yoga Teacher and teacher trainer

“When I think of a yogi, I think of Ron Reid.  He teaches from what he has learned from his many years of practice, you can feel that.  Even if you’ve been practicing for years and years he makes you feel curious and excited about yoga through his soft-spoken, humorous and extremely intelligent way of teaching.  He knows the body and how it works and he teaches you how to keep it healthy.  At the same time his classes are challenging and hot.  He makes you want to move to Toronto!!” Kristin Leigh, yoga teacher and co-owner of The Shala yoga studio in New York.

“(Meenakshi)…Nothing short of a shower of blessings to be in her presence.  Her teachings are full of light and wisdom generated from lifetimes of divine devotion.  With a natural inner cadence, Meenakshi’s voice carefully guides you through asana sequences, while subtly setting your mind adrift into deeper peaceful contemplation.  By far the best savasana experience as she chants you into a state of final transcendence. Samantha McDonald, yoga teacher, writer

“You are truly the Goddess of song, Meenakshi.  I feel a true teacher is one whose actions speak louder than words. I feel you embody this by how you humbly and humorously share your experience. You inspire me to stay committed to a practice of sitting still…that connecting with our true nature will be about transformation.” Karen Steele, teacher trainee grad

“Marla, I wanted to thank you with all my heart and soul for the experience you gave us today. It was beautiful, transcendental and unforgettable. I cannot begin to convey to you the sheer life-changing quality turning inward while practicing had on me. Connecting with the whole is something I have never really conceptualized until today. …Also, the chanting is incredible. You have a unique gift and I feel so blessed to be able to spend the few hours we have with you during this training. I had tears streaming down my face during our final chant. I found myself connected to a place within me that I had never been. So, thank you! I hope you realize the profound effect your sharing has on us!” Vanessa Kitchin, teacher training grad

“I was overwhelmed with Ron and Marla - his attention to the subtleties are incredible and so inspiring! I achieved so much more in just one day.  Their CD has been playing since I left - what a joy to have been with them.”  Sonya in Oxford, England

“I truly so appreciate your sharing your gifts with such devotion and passion.  You are each extremely rich and talented teachers.  I feel so fortunate to be able to share in your bountiful gifts.  Your family day class was like that, rich, warm, inspiring and authentic.  And Ron always overwhelms my resistances and makes my lack of confidence pale in his never-ending patience and guidance, blessings” Susan S.

“Ron, yesterday's class was the BEST ever, for me. I'm addicted. My body aches for that class - and after! I've been taking classes from you now for 10 years, off and on, since arriving in TO. I was turned onto yoga, peripherally, but you turned me INTO yoga. I'm grateful for your teaching, guidance and skill.” Angela B.
