Want a Fun Date Night Ideas that will get the two of you closer?

“FUN!” Lauren, 
I’ve been practicing Vinyasa yoga for over five years but never practiced partner yoga before until I tried it for the first time with Synergy by Jasmine. It was definitely a fun new experience for me. It taught me how to trust my partner on the mat and encourage my own confidence. Plus the moves are tremendously fun and playful!

“Exactly What Our Relationship Needed”   Barbara
We really enjoyed your class today.  We will be seeing you more…I can’t wait to tone my body, mind and spirit (not necessarily in that order).  I think your class is exactly what our relationship needs too, we needed a way to re-connect.  I just graduated and was busy 24-7++.  Now I have a business and am busy 24-7+++ so we hardly ever see each other or even have meals together anymore.  It was good, quality time with my best friend.

“Whole New Yogic Trip” 
“We really enjoyed the class. It was a gift for our relationship and so badly need. So thank you for your gift of yoga. Because for a (yoga) newbie, my husband really felt comfortable and wished we could have done more. The class you lead last week really touched our spirits which was amazing! And for me partnering is a whole new yogic trip!”  Summer

Raving About The Experience” 
Your program is great and you do such a wonderful job of gently and attentively guiding the session.  We both were raving about the experience and would love to come back and bring some of our friends.”

“Thank you so much for the opportunity to work with you. We had a really enjoyable experience.   I gained a physical understanding of my husband’s tenderness through the yoga poses.  I have shared how lovely the evening was for us to our friends; hopefully they’ll be visiting you too.  “  Karina
 
“WOW. If someone told me that I would love yoga I”d probably say NO WAY. I’ve spent the last several weeks involved in the Gentle Yoga class taught by Jasmine and have become a fan of yoga. For those with joint pain,and inflexibility I highly recommend this class. I have had mutiple surgeries on most of my joints..elbow,wrist,shoulder,and knees and find this class benefical to relieving stress in these joints. The class is awesome and I look forward to practing yoga for years to come thanks to Jasmine.”  Justine
 
As far as what shifted, we have a fun, new way to relax/exercise in a date night fashion. The class was a great exercise in giving up control of our bodies and allowing our partner to have control. We also noticed that it was good practice for both giving and receiving. For me especially, I now know that I don’t need a more strenuous power yoga session to loosen up and most importantly, to allow my body to shut off. Thanks again for the experience!  Jason

Tried my first couples yoga class and I LOVED IT!!!!! If you enjoy yoga, I definitely recommend giving it a try.

“Letting Go”.  J.F., 
Both the yoga and the meditation brought me so much relaxation.  I’ve struggled a lot and am finally coming to letting it all go.  I’m so thankful for getting this opportunity for this yoga retreat.

“Relaxing” E.C. 
We enjoyed the class and found it relaxing. We both slept like babies last night.
“Wonderful way to connect‎‎” By Cindy – Jul 12, 2010Last night, my husband and I returned home from Jasmine’s partner yoga class relaxed and grateful for the time we spent focused on each other. We enjoyed Jasmine’s calm approach and the way she tailored the class to the levels of those in attendance. The studio at 3901 Main St is really beautiful. It was the perfect way to spend an evening together. We loved meeting Michael and the other students too! See you next time!‎

“Excellent Class” By Cristina “ I’ve been practicing Hatha Yoga for four years and teaching it for one. However, Last night was my first experience in Partner Yoga. It was a special experience, because it was a way to connect with people in a relaxing and safe environment. I highly recommend this class.”‎

“Relief from my back pain” Alan B
I went to a Synergy by Jasmine event held by the Sustainable Business Network of Philadelphia. I really liked doing partner yoga – I was able to help my partner stretch and also relieve my own strained back. It was a great exercise in physical and spiritual contact!

“A Wonderful Experience” Anna

“Wonderful” Lena
We truly had a wonderful time!!  My partner and I had a private session with Jasmine and Michael and it was wonderful!   It was very relaxing and intimate and most of all fun.  We really had a great time and I feel it brought us closer together.  Jasmine was very supportive and patient and always had our best interest at heart. I would definitely recommend partner yoga with Synergy by Jasmine!!!   It was a great birthday present. And I hope to work with them again.

“Looking Forward to our Next Class” Christina
Thank you so much for a wonderful class tonight. It was so nice to relax and connect with my boyfriend through the methods you taught. I am looking forward to the opportunity to revisit the class. I will be in touch to set it up! Thank you again and namaste.

“You Have Both Made Such an Impact on our Lives” Barb
I just wanted to thank you and Michael.  You have both made such an impact on our lives!  Tonight was exceptional, I had such a blast that I fear I may become addicted to synergy.”

“Refreshing, Relaxing, Rejuvenating‎‎”By George 
My girlfriend and I both decided to try this class and have been really happy that we decided to do it. I am a little newer to yoga than my girlfriend, and after telling the instructor, she was very accommodating to my needs. I plan on continuing to attend as this class has helped us better handle the stresses that everyday life inevitably throws at us. The attitude of the instructor was both supportive and nonjudgmental, and her enthusiasm for her work was very apparent.

“Thank you so much Jasmine. The class was WONDERFUL. I felt like it was meant just for me. How special I felt. Thank you thank you thank you.  I am sending info to my friends about your wonderful class and your special gentle approach. I LOVED IT.”  Donna Kelly

 

MALT STORY -Susan  had been receiving the MALT catalogs for years intending to take a course before choosing women’s dance as her first one. Since then, she has taken the gentle yoga class with Jasmine Kaloudis several times. Initially, a friend told her about the course, saying that she loved it. This encouraged Susan to give it a try. She has found it to be the “perfect yoga, with nothing fast… It’s very soothing and calm. I like that it has meditation in it.”

Susan, who has rods and screws in her back, uses the techniques learned in the class to stretch properly at home. She says of the courses, “When you comepartner-yogaout of class you feel so light. It’s so good.” Susan likewise has praise for her instructor: “Jasmine is very proactive and in touch with us. She’s wonderful.” She hopes to continue taking classes in the future.

 

I just wanted to let you know how much I’m enjoying this class.  I have extremely tight muscles and joints and have tried yoga twice before, but this is the first time I’ve been able to stay with the class.  Although I still have miles to go, and my knees won’t cooperate with certain poses, I am so thankful I found your class.  Paula Boffa-Taylor

Great Yoga Classes for Beginners. Jasmine’s yoga classes are relaxed and comfortable. She teaches to the level of all the students in the class so the poses are accessible to everyone and no one is left out. Jasmine is a kind and patient teacher who is committed to the growth of each student. She also plays a great mix of music during her classes! Cindy
