BECKY JETTON

I have been going to EW for physical therapy and yoga for over 2 years. I came initially following a traumatic injury and their staff was able to provide a caring and encouraging approach to treatment that was tremendous from a physical and emotional standpoint. They treat their patients like family and it is always a safe atmosphere. The confidence that the EW staff has given me over that period has helped me to get to the level of wellness that I am today!

DIANE BOOKER

I have been going to EW for yoga for over 5 years. My class is led by a physical therapist who is very knowledgeable about the limitations of our bodies, which gives me comfort to know that I am in the best place! The atmosphere is quaint, personable, upbeat and fun.

JANE McGRIFF

I have been an EW Yoga client since 2016. Prior to coming to EW, I had been to several yoga classes in the community and found most of them to be overly crowded and/or overly strenuous. My three-person class with Ellie Jo is just the right size and our program is perfect for our age group. She has been able to tailor the flow to address the specific needs of the individuals in our class. The small group and high level of instruction are a winning combination!

TRINKET SHAW

I have been an EW yoga client for over 5 years and have worked with Ellie Jo and Ally. I was originally comingto EW for physical therapy treatment of a chronic plantar fasciitis issue. My PT Katherine Stone recommended EW yoga after we finished therapy. It was an invaluable suggestion and one of the best decisions that I’ve ever made. Having a knowledgeable, professional physical therapist who can protect me from injury as my yoga instructor is a gift! I’ve found that yoga can be trickier than you might think it would be as a wellness discipline. Ally keeps us safe by providing hints and modifications while she teaches. I particularly like the way Ally is able to add some props and equipment from other areas of EW to enhance the yoga instruction. It gives us opportunities to mix things up and try fun new ways of doing poses. While I really enjoy Ally’s fun-hearted athleticism, I also know that she’s always going to save time for deep breathing exercise and a satisfying savasana–critical parts of a traditional yoga practice. Ally’s encouragement and enthusiasm always pushes me to be a better student in her class!
