Tournesol Wellness clients say about Private Yoga:
"I have been taking private yoga sessions with Caroline for 18 months; initially as a rather intimidated beginner; it gave me the opportunity to build my confidence, make mistakes and ask questions. Now I combine private yoga with classes. Caroline tailors each session to my particular goal whether de-stress, mental release; muscle tightness or just an opportunity to challenge myself and correct my poses. I love working with Caroline she is the perfect combination of professional, knowledgeable and caring." - Victoria
“As a cyclist I spend 5 hours a day on a bike, and after a day of riding when I work with Caroline a session seems to rejuvenate me and make me feel even again. One of the best parts I have found with her that I wasn’t able to accomplish with other people is if an injury is bothering me for some reason at the beginning or midway thru a season she is quickly able to adapt what we are doing without skipping a beat." - Milan
"I practice yoga to increase core strength, flexibility, and to improve my ability to be calm in the moment. At my first session with Caroline, she took the time to discover my objectives and with patience and understanding, she designed a practice that was perfect for me. Caroline is not only an expert instructor, but has compassion and patience and made me feel good about myself." - Linda
“I've been doing yoga off and on for many years and I have to say that Tournesol has consistently provided among the best yoga teachers I've ever had.” - Claudette D.
