REVIEW by Caroline of GreenHeartYoga UK
“The LGY school is fantastic! Veronica is such an attentive and thorough teacher – I have learnt an incredible
amount of information and cannot wait to begin. The LGY method is just what I was hoping for …..animated, yet calm and not cheesy! I tried to apply all that I learnt to my practical session with the kids and was amazed at how much fun we all had while - the methods held the children’s attention and yet kept them calm and happy. I could not have picked a better children’s yoga teacher/school.”
