Heather J. ~ September, 2022
I have been practicing Hatha and Ashtanga yoga for 20+ years. Knowing that Iyengar emphasizes body alignment, I sought out private Iyengar instruction with the goal of creating a daily home practice that would support my health goals as my body ages. I was so fortunate to find Esta!
Esta and I had a private 1.5-hour session together and the entire experience was one I will treasure forever. Esta created an entire weekly Iyengar routine for me that was incredibly thoughtful and thorough. She spent great care understanding my health goals and my time / physical constraints as well. We then met together for our class where she asked clarifying questions and checked out my form and ability on several poses.
I now have a day-by-day home routine, customized just for me, my body, and my goals! Esta typed it all up and included timings and photos as well!
Esta gave me an incredible gift and I will certainly return to her as my practice evolves. I have never had such an incredible, personalized instructional experience before and I am truly grateful to Esta!

I was managing the care of a yogi with a terminal, degenerative neurological disease. She had been practicing yoga for years & performed many complicated asanas with Esta before I met either of them. Though her physical abilities had declined when I met them both, Esta guided restorative yoga and spiritual connection, both incredibly important to maintain strength and flexibility while the disease progressed. As my client’s body broke down, her spirit remained incredibly powerful, largely fed by Esta’s ability to be completely present with guiding her body’s breathing and deep relaxation. These skills were incredibly important for her comfort. I cannot speak words to convey the therapeutic and spiritual blessings Esta brought her. Namaste.
