"It's hard for me to believe that three weeks have gone by since the yin yoga workshops in Santa Monica.
The experience is still deep within me and resonating daily. I feel so much lighter. In the four workshops, I was reminded of the importance of simplicity as an anchor. To anchor and to stretch the yin principles into each day into the week and a month is my goal, to see what waves wash up and to learn the tides before the current
carries them away.

I am grateful for your wisdom and kindness, Paulie! Thank you for guiding me further towards my truth.
My friend's 16 year daughter, who joined me for the yin yoga session on Sunday told us at dinner that
Paulie is the 'most humble, amusing, subliminal' person she's ever met. She loved the practice."
Mary Beth Hickey

Paulie you are wonderfully available at your yin yoga workshops and very attentive to our needs on all levels~
as a group as well as singularly~ what you say is clear and concise and it helps~ thank you!
I have found this a rich learning experience~ very different from other certifications~ I see myself growing more into my yin yoga practice each day~ just as you said I would~ Looking forward to what comes next~
