Thank you so much for your time, expertise and guidance during the workshop, i felt comfortable and safe. After the workshop I bought a yoga block to do some of the excercices from the workshop, so thank you for giving me new inspiration!
Shira is a jewel and often says, “Your body is more intelligent than me, so listen to your body”. That’s exactly what it’s about. Mindful of movement and muscles, sensations and feelings. The build up is enjoyable with a pleasant atmosphere, intensity for the body moving naturally into relaxation and restorative poses. Shira shares her…
What a nice class, if you want to recover and ground yourself this really helps. Thank you for the gentle pleasant space, environment, atmosphere and class.
It is alluring to take a class by Shira, she is not only a good yoga teacher but also a nice human being. Thank you for the lesson!
Great for body and mind. Shira knows how to adpat postions, techniques and practices to have a specific effect on the body and mind. Leaving me feeling integrated, postitive and whole.
I’ve learned more with Shira than anywhere else, and truly appreciate the dedicated attention for the individual. Little or big nuances which really make a difference to what you feel and experience. Such a luxury. There’s a beautiful buildup in the class as well as over the course of weeks. So everything falls in place.…
Awesome class! Just don’t expect a gentle/restorative flow, its more of a yin yang class. Shira knows a lot about Ayurveda and integrates this in her yoga classes.
Shira’s style is slow but strong. 90% body and 90% mind. I love how it’s both really active AND teaches you a lot about your inner system. She has a lot of knowledge, focuses on using making sure you listen to your body instead of forcing. I always leave feeling physically and mentally nourished, strong,…
Shira is a really well-trained teacher who loves to share her knowledge, physically, mentally, about the yoga philosophy and pranayama. Gentle hatha movements and getting to know your body better.
Hele fijne les! Erg leerzame les die focussed op self care & self love. Goed voor body & mind en precies de juiste balans tussen inspanning en ontspanning. Zeker een aanrader!
Shira helped me with relationship and emotional eating issues, working toward safety, self-worth and self-acceptance. Setting boundaries, building structure and reclaiming intuition and trust. in my mind and body. Guiding me to feel how powerful, resilient and capable I am. Encouraging self-agency so I can face the challenges without losing faith in the process. Shira shares…
I am very happy to have had the chance to learn Yoga with Shira! The lessons are just the right combination of Yoga and meditation, bringing balance. Shira teaches the classical form of yoga with all the elements woven into the practice. One of the pros is there is always a sense of attention for…
I am so happy Shira came into my life. Her classes are always very professional and rich. Thank you for all the beauty you have shared.
I feel lucky that I found Shira, her classes help immensely to balance and ground myself after many changes. Also, Shira explains us very vital things about Ayurveda and Yoga. She takes care of each one of us during the classes, giving a more personal perspective and approach.
Thank you Shira, for the wonderful lessons. The flame has been lit for awakening and becoming aware. Thanks for helping me on my way.
The way Shira teaches her beautiful classes with so much passion, care and dedication has truly been an inspiration to me.
I have followed Shira’s classes with great pleasure and learned so much! The way the classes are taught ensures that I am much more relaxed, deal better with the stress of every day and sleep well each night.
In a short time Shira’s passion and knowledge of the human body has made sure I’m aware of my posture, listen deeply to my body, and feel much more connected to it. Shira knows what she teaches from her own experiences and practice, therefore she’s exceptional at guiding others.
A lesson from Shira feels like traveling through my being. After each lesson I feel as if I’ve seen and felt things I hadn’t even noticed or met fully before. It can be a small thing said that makes the day, week or month different. Or how we feel the forms of Yoga in the…
Shira takes time to set the mood of her classes. I love how each lesson is carefully prepared with a theme, Sutra, Chakra, or a particular body part, introduced by a thorough newsletter. Lessons start by coming into a meditative state to start the practice from. Being mindful of the theme every now and then,…
Shira has birthed within me inexhaustible knowledge and strength as new insights continue to appear. Opening my eyes to my own capacities, making me realize I have the power to nourish and uplift myself. It’s coming home physically, mentally and spiritually. Even after 25 years of Yoga, Shira has brought about transformations.
Thank you Shira for being open with compassion and love. I learned that it’s ok to feel whatever is, not needing to be afraid I can face what’s inside without a fight, just a calm observation. Accepting what already is has created space for improvement, new energy, strength. From Shira I learned the importance of listening…
Thank you Shira for the continual thread of treating my body with more attention, care and respect. Including Ayurvedic dietary changes I made, the dedicated attention to share knowledge of body and mind, intergrating many parts of my life, so the benefits work and are felt on many levels.
Shira Cohen is the best yoga teacher I ever had. She is able to deal with different levels of experience and ability, making you feel that she is totaly focused on you and your body’s needs; that doesnt mean that she will be soft on you! You will defenitely be pushed to reach your level…
After only two classes I’ve incorporated Shira’s teachings into my work and feel more confident already.
Shira has so much knowledge to share with the world. She taught me so much and I’ll be forever grateful.
Shira I am learning so much from you. I feel privileged to say I know you personally. Keep up the good work for us new and learning Yoga therapists need lots of love, support and information that we can easily assimilate into our work that is clear, practical and traditional.
I was overworked; physically, emotionally and mentally drained, lacking confidence in myself and body. Learning to relax, feel and see differences in my body and mind, invited more focus, acceptance and energy. Shira, as a professional therapist, teaches to inform, adapts to the individual, very easy to talk to, she loves to make jokes to…
Shira is a native speaker of both Dutch and English, and she is a master at delivering a bi-lingual Yoga class. In more general terms, Shira is great at seeing and responding to each individual in the class – whether in adapting the exercise; offering specific feedback or explanation; or serving a personalized tip or…
I loved this workshop it was wonderful. It is of high value to me and giving the strength I need to work.
