What our students are saying...

Leah Perkowski-Sisk

Who doesn’t need a more balanced life? I know I did about three years ago when a friend invited me to try out the new yoga studio in town. I fell in love. You couldn’t ask for a more welcoming and warm place with friendly and knowledgeable instructors. I was hooked.

I was unsure I was doing some of the poses correctly based on comparing myself to others in the room- rest assured, I was the only one doing the comparing. I thought several times that I would like to do a little more intensive training on proper form and technique but the only avenue seemed to be yoga teacher training-something I was too intimidated to do. I didn’t have the right body type, who would believe I did yoga, who would want to do/learn from me?

Through another fateful experience, I met a yoga instructor whose practice really inspired me and gave me enough courage and confidence to pursue teacher training.

A year or so later, the opportunity came up and I threw my name in the hat- it was my 50th birthday present to myself. I’m not gonna lie, it was more work than I imagined but the rewards were also greater than I imagined. I have now have a larger friends circle of incredible, resilient, and inspiring women, more confidence, and a greater capacity to help others.

I learned more than I ever imagined about what yoga is and what it isn’t.

It is SO much more than just pretty poses. Regardless of shape, size, age, or infirmity-everyBODY can practice some form of yoga.

Balanced Life Studio is much than just a yoga studio. If you are ever curious or want to give it a try, let me know, I'd be happy to introduce you.

As you can see, I'm still working on balance😁💪🏻and I still have a lot to learn. I can't thank my classmates as well as instructors Barbara Mandeville, Dewana Waters Grillot, and Erin Larsen enough for all the time, energy, and expertise they put into making teacher training such an outstanding experience! #zentribe
