Higher Altitude Yoga
I intend to come to your class as much as I can, I am so happy in your classes, you always make me smile.
I always leave Yoga class better than before.
Lawrence N., Sandia Park, NM
I couldn't have made it without you, especially in light of the fact that you carried me across the starting line to begin with. We did it together, as a team, 50/50!
Thank you so much for that.
Another huge help was your instruction on how to blast through that mandala at high speed,(I was holding each pose for 3 to 5 breaths ), now that was brutally exhausting.
My biggest takeaway; I can do yoga everyday and feel better if I do. Thanks again.

"Marie-Aude's verbal cues and instructions during class are excellent for proper alignment, and she focuses on "being" in the pose rather than "doing" the pose. She encourages us to try an Asana, even if we think we can't do it, as a means for personal and physical growth. I have been very pleased with her style and classes."
Robin A. Tijeras, NM
"Marie-Aude has me working at the peak of my abilities. I can advance at my pace without expectations or competition. Marie-Aude reminds me to concentrate on Pranayama and Asana instead of athleticism and accomplishment."
Mike V. Cedar Crest, NM
"I couldn't make it to class last night... Looking forward to next time and thankful for the new-found health and well being I am feeling from Yoga. Thank you, Marie-Aude for guiding me along and helping me grow stronger! "
Susan D. Cedar Grove, NM
I have been practicing yoga under the tutelage of Marie-Aude for about 6 months.
We are so lucky to have her! I am making steady progress in my yoga practice.
I suffer from a chronic illness and have made great strides in energy, a sense of well-being, and positive self-talk, all of which have been helped along by her yoga instruction. She is empathetic and kind.
Joe B. Sandia Park, NM
I'd like to thank you for your knowledge and pleasant teaching style. Between my divorce and raising 3 kids alone, my twice-weekly yoga with you last year was such a blessing.
Joy W. California
I'm loving your classes. You are so knowledgeable.
I have done a tremendous amount of yoga over the years. It is not easy to find someone with your knowledge and talent. So glad I found you.

"I have to have an emergency in my life to cut one of the two weekly yoga classes I take from Marie-Aude.
As a senior with scoliosis, lumbar disk issues, and osteoporosis, I get so much relief after each one of her Therapeutic class.
Even in larger classes, Marie-Aude manages to pay individual attention, and although I tease her that she watches us like a "hawk", I am thankful that I've never had an injury on her watch."
Cynthia A. Sandia Park, NM
"THANK YOU for everything! You have been an absolutely fabulous yoga instructor! Thanks for getting me addicted to yoga!"
Toni E. Tijeras, NM
"Thank you for your teaching. It provides me just what I need, and I feel my body getting stronger little by little even when I have to giggle at it."
Laura S. Tijeras, NM
"Yoga practice with Marie-Aude has been wonderful! Her approach is gentle and encouraging and her expertise is impressive. She is skilled at accommodating a class in which the students are at many different levels of ability. I have benefited greatly both physically and mentally from Marie-Aude's classes!"
Fran L. Tijeras, NM
Marie-Aude is a very knowledgeable, and precise in her instructions throughout yoga class. This is very helpful to me in attempting to do postures correctly .
I returned to yoga with an injured right hip, which can be very challenging in class, but after each class I move smoother and with less pain.
Betsy B. Sandia Park, NM
"Sadly I had to miss class tonight.
I did do a great DVD practice at home that had lots of the things I love about your class-- binds, head stand practice, twists, Vinyasa, though nothing like being with you in person!"
