Your Testimonials


"Nina, I want to thank you for bringing Kundalini Yoga to the area.  Kundalini Yoga has literally changed my life.  I cannot remember a time when I have not suffered from hay fever and blocked sinuses.  As soon as the snow disappeared in Spring, breathing became difficult, only to improve when the snow came back in December.  I lived on antihistamines.  As an avid outdoorsperson, staying in the house was not an option.  Several years ago I began taking yoga classes – I became a regular practitioner of Kripalu, but then began looking for a type of Yoga that was more mentally and physically challenging.  In July of 2008, I discovered the Yoga & Tea Studio, specifically, Thursday night Kundalini Yoga with you. What a difference it has made to my health!  With the (often) strenuous work-outs and unique breathing techniques, I am convinced Kundalini Yoga is the reason seasonal allergies are no longer a problem for me.  It is now November, and I think I had one week this year when I took antihistamines.  Many thanks Nina, your Kundalini Yoga class is great!"
Larisa Wheeler, Arnprior

"Yoga and Tea is a true gem in the Ottawa area, with its lovely setting and the atmosphere of acceptance that prevails in every class and with every instructor. A tourist in the practice of yoga for many years, I have taken my own practice to new levels, thanks to Nina and her wonderful staff. No more searching - I have found my yoga studio in Ottawa and that studio is Yoga and Tea!"
Michelaine Lahaie, Kanata

"When I was working downtown I enjoyed Kundalini Yoga at a location near my workplace. This type of yoga brought me great inner peace and new perspectives on how to view life and myself.  Now that I am entering my sixties and have more time --- I have been trying to find a great atmosphere and quality of Kundalini teacher in the west end . I have tried several places and finally found Yoga and Tea Studio.  The atmosphere is calm, peaceful -- a feel good place and the quality of teaching from Nina is excellent.
Thank you Nina and I look forward to many breaths with you."
Catherine Cooper,Kanata


"I am so grateful to have such a superb yoga studio here in Carp. I am 60 years old and have just now committed myself to spending time on my own health and fitness. I recommend Nina's kundalini yoga classes to young and to the getting older. The atmosphere is warm and serene. Each class is different but offers a complete but gentle work out. No judgment here, just smiles."
Susan Krongold, Carp


"I love my Wednesday Power class!  It is my time in the week to take time to recharge my batteries, and it gives my husband quality time with our infant daughter.  I also enjoy the size of the class, it really allows me to feel like the class is personal but that we all achieve things together.  I have done other power classes at other studios, but the teacher and the studio keep me coming back every week! The added bonus is that I live in Kanata and am about 10 minutes away from the studio, which makes things very convenient for me. Thank you!"
Rhonda Cummings, Kanata


"I have chronic back pain and have suffered for years with it.  This is my first time to yoga and I have felt an inner peace within myself that I forgot I had.  I feel more rejuvenated than I have in a long time!"
Bonnie Soucy, Woodlawn


"At last I can get out of bed in the morning and not feel so stiff I can hardly move!"
David Hinks, Carp


"During the yoga class I manage to detach from all thoughts related to work, past experiences and just be!  Learning to breathe is another valuable skill.  Sat Nam!"
Gabi Simion, Stittsville


"Thanks to Yoga & Tea Studio I stumbled upon Kundalini Yoga - and have been amazed by the positive transformation that has occurred in my life because of this powerful form of yoga.  I am convinced that it has helped immensely while recovering from a broken ankle and a recent second surgery for hardware removal.  Prior to the surgery - a special healing meditation (for me!) was incorporated into the Wednesday Kundalini yoga class... I had the second surgery on a Friday morning, actually did a 1/2 hour meditation/focussing on my breath prior to going into the OR which helped me feel very calm and relaxed.  I was determined and was able to get to Mary's Kundalini class the following Wednesday! I felt very strong and energized throughout the class.  I am so glad this lovely and peaceful studio and these amazing teachers have come into my life."
Chris Hume, Almonte


"Nina's yoga classes were the perfect way to get back into shape after pregnancy. The exercises were rigorous and gave me a good workout while still allowing me to recover at my own pace. The class combined theory with practice while cookies and tea at the end of the session added a personal touch. I would heartily recommend this class to all my friends."
Bojana Kolbah, Kanata


"I am 60 yrs.young, and have not yet found a yoga class that I feel did as much for me as the one Nina gives .....here in Carp.  I have tried a few others at gyms and none of them seem to measure up. The ambiance, enthusiasm and wealth of information that Nina brought to each class was incomparable....not to mention the yogi tea & cookies after class."
Pam Meunier, Carp

"I have chronic back pain and have suffered for years with it.  This is my first time to yoga and I have felt an inner peace within myself that I forgot I had.  I feel more rejuvenated than I have in a long time!"
Bonnie Soucy, Woodlawn

"We always appreciate the warm welcome on entering the studio.  We experience genuine concern for our well-being throughout the class.  We are grateful to Louise (Murray) in particular for encouraging a mind, body, spirit connection.  We have a gift beyond measure in Carp!"
Marian and Guy Brethour, Kanata

In 2009, we collected $250 and over 200 items of food for the local West Carleton Food Bank.
