Testimonials

“Finding and taking classes at Moonflower Yoga is one of the best gifts I have given to myself.  Instructors are knowledgeable, warm, nurturing and provide this yoga beginner with much needed support and guidance in an intimate, small class size setting.  Classes here cannot be compared to those offered at neighborhood gym, where in my experience, the focus is on physically getting fit. The focus that I have found here is more spiritual in nature, with an emphasis on the mind and body and this combination has made an incredible difference for me in terms of emotional health and well being. I leave each class feeling relaxed, happy,  soothingly energized and motivated to care for myself and to get in stronger physical shape. Yoga participants are all down to earth and welcoming – this is the place where the yoga family gathers together and I look forward to each celebration.”

“Three years ago, I decided to return to taking yoga classes as I felt that I had gone as far as I could on my own. I was however concerned having some residual coordination issues following a stroke. It was important that I find a place where yoga class was not a competition and where I could learn and grow in my practice. Moonflower Yoga is that place! From my first class, to date there has never been pressure to “perform”, instead the skilled and dedicated teachers provide gentle guidance and encouragement. The small class sizes and intimate space permits for a close student teacher relationship. The studio offers a wide variety of classes from restorative classes and mediation, chair yoga,  vinyasa flow,  Reiki, as well as interesting and informative workshops. It has been a privilege to take advantage of all this studio offers and the growth and impact on my practice has been an amazing journey. There is something good for everyone at Moonflower Yoga and I recommend the studio to anyone looking to find a special place to learn and practice yoga.”

“I am very thankful to have found Moonflower Yoga.  Nancy Weshkoff, the owner of Moonflower Yoga, is absolutely wonderful in every way.  She has made her yoga studio into a place of comfort, peace, love and friendship.  Nancy sees her students as individuals with different needs, feelings and concerns; and she treats everyone with a warm heart and extreme kindness.  All of the yoga instructors I’ve met and worked with at Moonflower Yoga share Nancy’s ideals of making their students feel comfortable and safe.  As skilled teachers, they lead their students by showing how a particular movement or pose is executed, along with carefully worded directions and; sometimes, a gentle hand to guide us.  From my experience, the instructors’ main focus is to see that their students enjoy the gifts of better health and well being they themselves have achieved by practicing yoga, meditation, relaxation and breathing exercises.  Moonflower Yoga offers many types and levels of classes; and there’s a class (or classes) for anyone who wants to become more agile, improve their balance and become more emotionally and mentally secure–as I have. Moonflower Yoga also offers a variety of workshops including a book club, Mah Jongg, crocheting, Reiki and more–at which you can learn a new skill while socializing and having fun, too.  I sincerely recommend Moonflower Yoga to anyone who is searching for inner peace, better health and happiness.”

“Moonflower Yoga is a special place. It is more than a Yoga Studio.  You can participate in workshops, such as vegan cooking or learning about Chakras. You can join a book club or learn to play Mah Jongg.  Moonflower is all those things and more.  It is a welcoming environment.   The teachers are very sensitive to individual needs, as well as being informative and knowledgeable about the practice.  The owner Nancy makes people feel at ease and part of the Moonflower family. It is a good for beginners or any level of practice.  Take a class, I’m sure you will be happy you did.”

“I have been going to Moonflower Yoga for nearly three years and it has literally changed my life. I knew from the moment I first walked through the doors that Moonflower Yoga was a special place. It is a community where one can learn and practice yoga with some terrific instructors, learn about meditation and other yoga related topics, join a book club, play Mah Jongg, join knitters and crocheters and make new friends.  Moonflower Yoga is just a wonderful place to enrich your life.”

Marjorie Karlin

 

“So happy that I found Moonflower Yoga!  The small classes and wonderful instructors made yoga a wonderful addition to my retired life.   Classes were paced appropriately for a beginner and then always offered ways to challenge myself. The flexibility, strength and balance, mentally and physically, that I have gained amaze me each day.  I have made many new friends at Moonflower and joined in numerous workshops and clubs.  Moonflower is a unique place and you soon become part of a family!”

“Moonflower Yoga and its owner, Nancy Weshkoff, embody all I hoped for in a practice.  Classes are small, expertly led and monitored, and are available in many different styles. Thanks to Moonflower Yoga, I have tried and loved many different styles of yoga I have never been exposed to before, and have been able to do this all in one studio!   Nancy’s style of teaching is focused and hands-on, with gentle suggestions and corrections that assure me I am building a solid foundation for what I know will be a life-long practice.  In that, Moonflower Yoga is the both the perfect place to begin- and grow- a yoga practice.  One is never lost in the crowd here.   Beyond the excellent teaching and classes, Nancy has built a warm, caring community that welcomes all with open arms.  I have never hesitated to attend any of the studio’s fascinating special events, even if I were going alone.  Knowing I would always feel comfortable even if I knew no one, has helped me widen my knowledge in many different and interesting areas, and I’ve built new friendships along the way.   Moonflower Yoga is not just a yoga studio- it is a place that mirrors in its warmth, cleanliness, and spirituality everything one could ask for in a yoga practice.”

“I have been a student at Moonflower Yoga shortly after it opened, which is almost three years ago. I started my yoga practice with Nancy, who happens to be the owner. Her beginner classes are an awesome way to start if you’ve never practiced yoga before. In addition to taking classes with Nancy, I have also grown to love the many other classes offered at Moonflower. There are many teachers who teach different types of yoga and I have nothing but love for each of them. I have a very stressful job, and my yoga practice has taught me to “BREATHE” and let the negative energy go.  The classes are small, so I guarantee you will get the personal attention needed first timers. I look forward to meeting you soon!”

Debbie M.

 

“Moonflower Yoga is an experience unlike any other yoga studio I have been to, and in the best way possible. Nancy Weshkoff, owner of Moonflower Yoga, has created a beautiful, homey, and comfortable environment for people of all ages to practice yoga. If you have ever taken a class and felt uncomfortable, like you were doing something wrong, or that yoga wasn’t for you, rest assured Moonflower Yoga is the complete opposite experience. Classes are small and Nancy will notice all of your movements to make sure you are doing the pose right. A class will leave you feeling refreshed and ready to take on the week ahead!”

– Nancy B.

 

“Moonflower Yoga is a boutique yoga studio that feels like an oasis of peace and Zen.  The atmosphere is beautiful and welcoming.   Nancy (the owner and principle yoga instructor) is a wonderful teacher that helps ease you into the class and evolve with it, even if you are new to yoga.   She’s genuine, real, and truly passionate about her students.  The classes are small, which gives her and the other teachers an opportunity to have a hands-on approach and pay much closer attention to you as a student.  You won’t regret taking a class here, really!”

“I am so happy my husband and I attended the Bellmore Family Street  Festival.  It was my introduction to Moonflower Yoga.  I am 76 years old and have been taking yoga classes for about ten years but never have I enjoyed a class more than my 10:00 am class on Thursdays.  It is so professional, so concentrated and, yet, so relaxing.  I feel like a new person every Thursday at 11:15.  Thank you so much for such a wonderful experience that is so helpful to my feeling healthy and peaceful each week.”

Maryellen H.

 

“I thoroughly enjoy Nancy’s yoga classes. I know that her knowledge of the asanas and anatomy, combined with her compassion and joy of teaching, will always provide me with a satisfying class in a nurturing environment.”
