I am blessed to have found Nina. What a wonderful experience each week at chair yoga! I will be 78 in a few months, a widow with a few health problems and I leave the class feeling lighter, happier and in better shape than when I came in. I will be starting a second weekly chair yoga class with Nina and am looking forward to it. Nina has a magical quality about her. While instructing and leading us through each pose with proper breathing, her voice is soft and tranquil while her face is ALWAYS bright and smiling; softly reminding us to know our body, be kind to it and not hurt ourselves. She knows her students and makes sure each person respects their problem areas. Also, laughter is always a part of the class. Nina is not just a great teacher but a wonderful person - a flawless diamond. Lillian R. Commack, NY
I am 69 years old and wanted private yoga instruction in my home. Nina is patient, kind and a gifted instructor. Her love of yoga is palpable and contagious. I look forward to our next session and strongly encourage anyone of any age to give her a try! You will not be disappointed. Pat C. Ronkonkoma
Nina is a truly amazing instructor. There are few leaders who are so understanding of one's individual limitations. She suggest alternative positions when one has restrictions such as knee or hip replacement, shoulder surgery and even the nuances of being short or tall. Her enthusiasm, smile and laughter make each session a pleasure to attend. I am 70 years old, 6 feet tall and have a knee replacement, femur break and ankle fracture (plates and screws installed) I feel very comfortable in her class. The laughter, camaraderie, the sharing of experiences while exercising is fun. Her reminders that we are each different and should be careful to keep our bodies safe is encouraging. I am thankful for her journey to help people with limitations. Karen C. Greenlawn, NY
I am 78 years old and look forward to every Thursday afternoon class with Nina. I can already feel the physical benefits. I am more flexible and have less joint pain, and the fellowship of the group is an added bonus.

I don't love yoga, but I love Nina's approach to treating my body & my mind & have grown to have a deeper appreciation of both through her yoga classes. Kind, compassionate & attune to her students, Nina is the best instructor I have found for my journey. Meryl M. Smithtown, NY
Nina meets students where they are- whether it's hot yoga, chair yoga or restorative. She teachers peace and joy and self acceptance. Liz K. Kings Park, NY
Nina is a true mentor, teacher and spiritual leader. She has taken me from a pure beginner to now, someone who can honestly say.... someone who is able to peacefully meditate and know each move under her direction. Nina may not know this, but at a more difficult time in my life, she has provided me with solace and peace. She is wonderful and I hold her in high regard. Toni P. St. James, NY
Nina is that rare combination of kindness and compassion paired with a genuine passion and spirit. She inspires each and everyone of her students to not only enjoy the physical aspects of the practice of yoga but to embrace the true meaning of yoga. Sheri K. Hauppauge, NY
