REVIEWS & COMMENTS
I have taken Yoga four or five different classes/instructors and Keith’s class makes me feel like I can continue Yoga. The other classes were too hard. I also like the background information that he teaches and his philosophy about Yoga and relationships. I have thoroughly enjoyed taking Keith’s yoga classes. The classes are easy to learn and are a great opportunity to become more flexible and relaxed. Keith also offers great insights into Yoga practices on the mat and in life.
Twice, I have experienced Keith’s didgeridoo music, and both times were memorable. The first time was after yoga practice. A small group of us lay on the floor, both listening to and feeling the vibration of Keith’s playing. It felt universal, like the effect of the word OM in its purest form. The second time, Keith played his CD for me. Again, the music vibrated throughout my body in an elemental way. Later that night I went to hear a friend play guitar and sing. Affected by the didgeridoo music, I felt my friend’s music resonating within my internal organs. My ability to listen had expanded beyond simply hearing to become a complete body experience.
Your class has been so much more than I anticipated – thank you!
“Keith Molyneaux is a sincere and dedicated yoga teacher and practitioner. He brings a depth of knowledge to his classes, guiding students effectively into the poses, taking them deeper into self awareness and building strength and flexibility with gentle and firm authority. His voice is resonant and encouraging, his manner welcoming and heartfelt, he is reliable and trustworthy. His personal practice is clear and illustrative. Keith is an excellent yoga teacher to have on staff. I highly recommend him.”
Thank you for leading such a good class today. I always feel so much better (physically and emotionally) after a session with you and I hope you know how much of a difference you make with your generous spirit and good energy. Sean and I both think that if we were to make a bazillion dollars someday, we would hire you as our personal yogi and fly you out to Seattle for weekly lessons. For the record, I had a borderline migraine when we came in to class and by the end of the session I was headache-free. This is priceless to me. Have a great week and we’ll see you in yoga class!
