“If you have any kind of ongoing chronic pain, sign up for Lindsay Keefe’s Pain Yoga Clinic!
I’ve been a chiropractor for 20 years and because of the repetitive actions of my profession, I’ve developed pain in my right shoulder, elbow and wrist.
I was nervous to try Lindsay’s class because traditional yoga poses increase my pain. I wondered if I would make it through the whole workshop. I shouldn’t have worried. The moves were helpful AND felt good. The class was small enough that we each got one on one time with Lindsay. By the end, my body, including my arm, was relaxed and centred. I felt stronger and more hopeful about recovering.
Afterwards, Lindsay gave us a handout outlining the poses and exercises we had done. A few hours later, a video of the exercises landed in my inbox! Definitely above and beyond what I expected.

“You must be lucky to be reading this testimonial because it means you have found Lindsay Keefe and her amazing yoga experiences. I have been fortunate enough to have done several yoga workshops with Lindsay, most recently two of her Yoga for Pain Clinics. I keep returning because there is helpful new information each time, and because it keeps me practicing the postures that are so good for me.
Lindsay is unique in her ability to pinpoint the very specific asana that targets a problem area. She is also excellent at describing in words and visuals hoot properly do the various postures. I have not found a previous yoga instructor with such an ability to identify positions and moves that relieve tension or discomfort. For me, that was sometimes in areas that I hadn’t even recognized were restricted but now feel much freer after my class with Lindsay.
I so enjoyed my workshops with Lindsay, I am now looking forward to doing some one-on-one sessions with her. I highly recommend trying yoga with Lindsay. You will be glad you did. ”

“I would like to recommend Lindsay to anyone that wants a peaceful yoga experience. I am going through treatments of Chemotherapy and it is extremely important for me to have a teacher that is kind, caring and reliable like Lindsay. As you can imagine I have enough stress in my life but I feel totally relaxed during our sessions. I recommend her highly to anyone that needs to relax and needs the comfort that Yoga gives.”

“I’ve been practicing yoga with Lindsay for the last 7 months. I’ve noticed a very significant change during this time. Prior to practicing yoga I had limited strength and some balancing difficulties due to arthritis. When I met Lindsay I was impressed with both her knowledge and her patience. I’ve been practicing yoga twice weekly and have noticeably more strength and much better balance. Lindsay started with basic poses and as my abilities increased she added more difficult poses to both challenge me and to help me grow. I very much recommend yoga with Lindsay to other seniors to either stay active or to become active. Lindsay has the ability and the patience to customize a yoga program for people of all ages and all physical conditions.”

We can’t wait to have Lindsay back at the school in the fall. ☺”

“My husband and I wanted to try yoga together. We tried the experience of attending yoga classes at our gym but we weren’t satisfied with the experience.
We didn’t want to give up because we have heard of the positive results yoga provides to stressful lifestyles.
Through research and referrals we found Lindsay Keefe on the internet.
After meeting with her in our home where she conducted the initial consult we knew she was the person we wanted to hire as our personal instructor to teach my husband and I privately in the comfort of our own home.
We have stressful jobs, and busy lives but having someone come to our house to teach us Yoga is beneficial. Through her I have learned the breathing techniques to relax and de-stress.
Through her training she has helped me relieve pain in my lower back, legs and calves. I also no longer walk around with my shoulders up beside my ears. She reminds me all the time during our sessions ….”shoulders down and relaxed.” I feel great after each session.
Lindsay is calm, very knowledgeable and very attentive to our needs and concerns. Every class is different. She focuses on our specific needs determined through dialog at the beginning of each session and then she quickly adapts the session to address the needs . Whenever Lindsay is introducing new poses and techniques she is very positive and works side by side to demonstrate which makes learning 1:1 much more relaxing.
It is wonderful to have her work around our schedule. She is always on time and prepared. Based on our experience, I would highly recommend Lindsay as a personal yoga instructor.
Her communication and demonstration skill set along with her extensive knowledge and experience make her the fantastic instructor that she is!!”

“Lindsay teaches yoga classes at my workplace and makes doing exercise tolerable. She listens to when we make requests and tailors the session around the needs of our group. My favourite part of yoga is Savasana. It is one of the few moments in the day I get some zen and my mind can be at peace. Lindsay is always there to help adjust a position and to provide the support I need if I can’t reach the fullest pose. When we go into a pose where I need to grab my feet, she is already there with the strap. I would recommend Lindsay because she is kind, patient, knowledgeable, calming and supportive.”
Jessica Ylanko – Corporate Client
“It was very convenient to have the instructor coming to the workplace. We started yoga right away after work, and could go straight home when we finished. We learnt different yoga poses, relaxation and breathing techniques which helped to relief muscle tension and reduce stress. Surprisingly it also helped to lower my body weight and blood-sugar level. Our teacher, Lindsay, was knowledgeable, very friendly and provided special attention to those who needed it. I enjoyed every moment of our yoga classes.”
Adelina Leung (T&T Supermarket)
“At first I wasn’t very comfortable about going to yoga classes but I kept going and ended up really enjoying it. I found the breathing exercises very calming. Lindsay helped me realize, that yoga is a nice way to exercise without having to kill myself each time, as I would normally do with other forms of exercise. I liked the combination of the strengthening, stretching and breathing techniques. Lindsay has a very calm mannerism and I feel that it really helped everyone in the class. I can’t wait to take more of your classes in the future.”
Manuela Ghermeck – Corporate Client
“Lindsay’s Corporate yoga classes have helped me to increase joint flexibility in my hips and shoulders, which has helped improve my gym routine particularly with squatting and general bar ball exercises. Lindsay helps each of us personalize our yoga practice and meet our goals by providing feedback and hands on assists. Lindsay has been very informative and explains movements clearly. I like that she varies the classes week to week and adapts to the general goals/mood of the class. Lindsay is a very easy and likeable person, who is passionate about Yoga and continually improves her knowledge and craft of Yoga.”
Chris Wong – Corporate Client
“My favorite part of our yoga classes was the stretching. It feels so great. All my stress, pain, and worry are all gone. I wish I could be in Lindsay’s class more than once a week. The best part is, I sleep like a baby.”
Mercy Pontipiedra – Corporate Client
“Lindsay helped me tremendously with my left shoulder that was hurting me for a year and half. After doing the exercise that she recommended, the pain is almost gone. Thank you for that. I also really enjoyed that each class was different and that Lindsay encouraged us to try things that we did not think we could do.”
