"Having never received a Reiki session I was open minded but skeptical of the process. I took a chance and attended one Reiki session with Lisa Shumway. The results were remarkable. The session put me into a total relaxed state that allowed my mind to quiet and my body to settle and fully relax. I cannot thank Spirit Rising and Lisa Shumway enough for her excellent help and incredible results. Since the short time that I have been receiving Reiki, I have learned to concentrate more, relax and understand and appreciate all of the elements that this wonderful place called earth is comprised of. I have started to regain my sense of balance and purpose in this universe and my recovery has been nothing short of sensational. Again I cannot thank Spirit Rising and Lisa enough for all of their help and unbelievable results. The results that I have obtained thru Reiki surpass any other results from any other type of medicinal application that I have tried." -Vincent
"Lisa The session yesterday is another start to a more fit lifestyle. Thanks. Looking forward to the next one. Taking your Chair Yoga sessions allowed me to get thru some very tough situations. I joke with my wife about her dedication to Yoga and your Studio, but, it has made enormous changes in her life style and attitude for the better. Thanks for all your help." -George
"I had pulled a tendon on the back of my neck. It was so uncomfortable and even tender to the touch. Nothing I tried gave my any relief. I attended a Yin class with Lisa five days after my injury, and spoke up when she asked if anyone had an issue they'd like to focus on. I'd been attending yoga classes here for two years now, and had grown to appreciate how much better they made me feel mentally, physically, and even spiritually. Even so, if anyone would have told me that one hour of Yin with therapy balls would relieve me of my pain, I would not have believed it. I'm a walking testimony to the benefits of yoga. Lisa and her staff are wonderful, personable, knowledgeable, and caring people. Give them a try. You won't be sorry. P.S. I never write reviews. I'm that impressed. Just ask my friends, family, or anyone I work with!"
Thank you Lisa at Spirit Rising Yoga. I went to your Tuesday night Slow Flow class and I was amazed at how much it helped me. I was experiencing a great deal of pain in my knees and hips. You asked the class if there were any areas that we especially wanted to work on. I explained my issues and it was like you tailored the class to help me. It made a tremendous difference. I am grateful.
It doesn't matter if you've never done yoga before, or if you're advanced in your practice. Spirit Rising offers classes for every level. I speak from personal experience, beginning my journey a few years ago. You will find love, peace and an inner strength that you never knew existed. You will learn to build your core muscles and feel stronger each day. You will learn how to breathe and be in control of your body, mind and spirit. -Deb B.
I LOVED tonight's Hatha class. It has been so long since I practiced that both my body and mind forgot how healing and nourishing this practice can be. But the muscles remembered and the mind opened. What a beautiful teacher you are Lisa and the class was filled with peace, which I attribute to your team and the space. Namastè, I look forward to the next class.
"My first visit was for a private session with Stacey. I found the studio to be warm and inviting. I felt completely comfortable and at ease during my session, and Stacey explained everything as she went along. It's clear that she is quite knowledgeable, and that she has a passion for teaching and helping others. I look forward to working with her again."
An amazing way to start my day! Spirit Rising provides a comfortable, welcoming and non-intimidating environment to all who walk through the door.
Deanna led our class this evening. I could hear her instructions clearly and they were easy to follow. The class had a nice flow and was soothing and relaxing. I felt I had an excellent stretch afterwards. This was my first class at spirit rising. I am looking forward to trying more classes, as well as taking this one with Deanna again!
