testimonialsI started yoga about 10 years ago, in my early 50’s.  My first teacher was Esther Vexler, who also started yoga at an older age.  She was teaching me in her 90’s!!!!  Esther is well known in San Antonio.  She is a gem of a teacher!  My second teacher, Deborah Charnes, is another gem!  She is such an able teacher.  She provides what you want from a teacher: encouragement, knowledge, tolerance, and her own yoga expertise.  She provides words of wisdom with every class.  She can teach very basic, gentle yoga all the way up to advanced yoga and speaks Spanish beautifully.  I always feel a lot of accomplishment in my yoga class.
