“I’ve been practicing yoga for many years, and while you learn something from every teacher, there are those special one’s that exemplify what a rich yoga experience is all about – Winter is one of these teachers.

My top 10 list on what makes Winter special:

  1. A treasure trove of deceptively simple poses that can really make you work; those poses and practices that sneak up on you
  2. Deep knowledge of anatomy, healing, and alternative options
  3. Wide variety of poses; Winter’s practices never gets routine or boring
  4. Focus on a holistic practice – body, mind and breath – practices that work for all levels, ages, and abilities
  5. Great play lists that pull from all genres
  6. Melodic and soothing voice guiding you through the practice
  7. Sharing words of wisdom as part of the practice
  8. Serious about her teaching, yet doesn’t take herself too seriously – willing to laugh and see the humor in everything
  9. Her ending salutation: “May all beings have happiness and the causes of happiness. May all beings be free from suffering and the causes of suffering. May all beings never be parted from freedom’s true joy. May all beings dwell in equanimity, free from attachment and aversion.”
