I’ve worked as a Registered Nurse for nearly ten years. Spending long hours on my feet, bending and twisting in ways the body is not meant to bend and twist, and working in a high stress environment eventually takes a toll on your mind and body. The last few years I’ve been experiencing lots of pain in various parts of my body.

I don’t like taking medication so I began looking for alternative ways to alleviate my pain. My doctor suggested I try yoga.

I’m so glad I took her advice. I took a few private lesson and immediately begin to feel relief in my neck pain so I decided to take Keith’s beginner yoga class. Combining the techniques I learned from the private lesson and the postures I learned in Keith’s class I have received significant reduction in my pain.

Some days I’m completely pain free.

Keith’s class taught me proper technique in postures and proper yoga breathing. One benefit that I received from the class that I never expected was the relaxation and stress reduction benefits yoga can provide. I’m very glad I took this class and would recommended this class for anyone looking to relieve pain, gain strength and flexibility, and lose a little stress in your life!!

The first experience our yoga community had with Keith and the Living Artisan experience left us with a profound impact. The live music experience is energetically magical. In my humble travels and trainings, I had never found the fully rounded experience that comes at you, into and through you from every sense. Keith taught us how to connect to ourselves, to fully experience ourselves, to honor ourselves, and he did this in a way that both made sense and deeply resonated with all in attendance, however varied their life or personality may be. We treasure his visits and trust you will too.
