It's been a pleasure to know you. I don't think I'll ever find a yoga teacher as knowledgeable as you.

Dr. Bookspan's classes are different, powerful, fun, and very POSITIVE.
- Yoga class student

I have been so much more aware of keeping my lower back in line. I really grasped that the last few classes I attended, and it is paying off.
- Marcella Reis

I have worked out for a long time & have not yet been able to target the areas in my legs that we did last night-spots I've wanted to tone for most of my adult life! Just wanted to let you know & tell you how psyched I am for the rest of the program. Thank you for showing me so many new things!
- Cynthia Brown, certified AFFA aerobics instructor

The teacher respects the participants as individuals. It sounds simple but indeed that is rare and makes all the difference
-Allison Millard

Dr. Bookspan is great! She cuts through the trendy "crap." She really cares about the class and the progress of the students, and tailors the class to meet individual needs.
- Kristine Grimmett

It is rigorous and Dr. Bookspan is a great coach - exacting and caring. I had total confidence that she would not let me hurt myself. Dr. Bookspan has shown me that I can prevent injury, be in control of my aches and pains, and avoid being a victim of aging.
- Nadeen VanTuyle


I look and feel better. Dr. Bookspan has shown me that your body can do amazing things and anything is possible.
- Karen Reynolds

I am the woman with the rods in my back. I wanted to write to tell you that I got so much out of that class. I find the exercises for the upper back most helpful. I am happy for the steps you gave me to help myself.
- Ira Jones

I am finally feeling better after trying everyone and everything else. Thank you for your encouragement and wonderful techniques-I've become a believer! I'll continue to follow your good advice. You run a great class! Your techniques along with your ability to teach them, makes the class very powerful. Thanks again for all your help. Your recommendations have been great and really got me on the right track.

Thanks for the words of encouragement. I'm glad to be able to take your class again--you really make it empowering spiritually and in other ways!

This class has made my life better. I learned ways to be stronger in my everyday life, and that there are things I can do to avoid the sinking feeling of getting old.

I just wanted to tell you how great your kick boxing class was. After a hard day's work of dealing with other people's crap, your class lifted my spirits and lowered my blood pressure :-) It was a challenging workout and I enjoyed every minute of it.
