"I hunted Kerry down after taking a few months of classes from her at another studio. I was so glad to find her at her own studio and even happier to discover everything she offers here. The way she encourages us all to modify the yoga moves so we avoid injury and let's us know we don't have to be "perfect" to be perfect, is such a boon to my own practice. And then there are all the other opportunities she presents that allow for spiritual/physical/mental expansion. It is a studio built on love " - Adrienne McCarthy
"You , your class , your kindness was a very special gift to me and you need to know how much it is doing for me! You are making a huge difference in my well being, my recovery, and stabilization. Don't discount the wonderful work you do! " K Dineen
"Funny how I walk out of your class a different person!" - A Hartshorn

Thank you Kerry and Life Balance Yoga & Wellness! As a long time distance runner who thrives on making myself go further and faster, I reluctantly tried yoga after you convinced me how beneficial it could be. After running the Boston Marathon in 2012, my body became very tight from cutting mileage back and ugh, just getting older!!! I even had to call my husband to pick me up at my worst because I couldn't even walk never mind run! I was afraid I was done with running... With your inspiring words and funny jokes I began. You made it very easy as a beginner and within 2 weeks, my IT band & knee pain disappeared. What I didn't expect was the mental benefit as well - I am an oncology nurse with 3 active kids and don't always realize when I need to "wind down." You have a gift of making people feel they belong on the mat even when they may not feel worthy!! Yoga has not only improved my running PRs but has helped me to run without music and focus inward on my breathing and endurance. I look forward to every class and notice the difference when I miss a class- so does my family!!! Namaste~
"That class really solved some physical issues I was having. After playing hockey, I had some tightness in my back and legs."
"This morning's Slow Flow class with Kerry was beautiful. That's not a good enough word to describe it, but it's what comes to mind when I think of my practice today. We changed things up a little and spent time on things I haven't tried before and I loved it. Kerry is good at reading her students and their moods, she must be, because she changed up the practice she was planning for today, and brought it down a notch. We had long stretch moments, I felt in such a calm meditative state throughout the entire practice. We even did a short tai chi flow which really made me feel powerful and grounded. I really enjoyed it. You all know by now I can talk too much lol, so I'm sorry for the long post. I just felt it was important to share how I felt about today's slow flow practice and how wonderful and patient Kerry is. I'll definitely be coming to her class next Sunday. " - Tanya L.
"My husband and I attended the Candlelight Yoga event tonight and it was led by Kerry. When I walked in the studio there was a feeling of calm and ease even before the yoga began. Kerry was very welcoming and made sure that we had everything we needed. The candles, beautiful music and Kerry's lead was a fantastic way to kick off the weekend". - Sue Medeiros
"Hadn't been to a yoga class in over 10 years. Liz was so helpful and got me back into it. They are so nice, great local vibe. Very clean, warm and inviting." - Dan Murphy
"Since practicing Yoga - I have noticed I care less about the external body and can focus more on my inner awareness" - A.M.
" I loved Laura's class - it was exactly what I needed!"
"I highly recommend the journaling class for anyone who's ever thought about it. ... or even someone like me who's done it for years. I've always found journaling to be a great way to work through life's highs and lows. I went to Kerry's class on 9/21 and really enjoyed it. It was fun, easy going and insightful. There was a mix of fun journaling exercises and gentle yoga poses.You could share your thoughts or not ~ no pressure. We even learned how to create quick 'in the moment' poems. Kerry has a way of keeping it fun while helping to draw out our thoughts and ideas. The one hour class flew by! " - Dianne Patten
"Roberta's class was excellent!"
"We love Tracy's Class!"
This has truly been life changing for me. Thank you Kerry for sharing your wonderful yoga classes with me! - Kathy D
From Facebook Review: "I can honestly say, finding Kerry and LBYW has been the best thing that has happened to me in a LONG time. Kerry was ve...ry patient with me as I was coming to yoga for the first time. I remember my first class, not sure what to expect. I hid in the back corner with a mat that the studio has to use during class thinking that I would go to support a friend that was taking the class with me. Little did I know what would happen in that class. She made me feel so welcome, helped me modify and gave me tips to make my experience the best that it could be.
Now, I look forward to the multiple classes that I take a week and all of the Special Events that I participate in that are hosted here. If you need someone that can be patient and lead you to wellness, this is the place for you!! " - Gina Toce
What a warm and inviting space! Kerry is a great teacher and does a great job of making you feel welcomed and very comfortable. No matter what level you are at, just roll out your mat, follow Kerry's lead, and you will leave feeling grounded and at peace. - Mike D
The first time I walked into the yoga studio there was a feeling of peace & acceptance. Kerry is gentle, kind & listens so well to each participant. When someone is passionate with their life's work, as Kerry is, it is palpable. Kerry's joy & ability to soothe comes so very naturally for her. Kerry's compassion is individually focused. I am so very grateful for having Life Balance Yoga & Wellness in my life! Kerry's is hosting my 7 sisters & I with a special theme yoga session on the weekend of what would have been my Mother's 91st birthday, I'm sure, my Mama's spirit will be with all of us all during this special yoga session! Would love for you to to experience the same joy & peace! Namaste - Sheila M
Reiki Testimonials :
From Reiki Share 1/10/16:
I have had this pain on touching my left temple for about a year, every time I touched or pressed on it , it hurt. I was afraid it was something just waiting to happen I noticed yesterday it was gone! Maybe your magic hands? - Carol
We also had reports of a week long headache being relieved and also back pain improved! Thanks for sharing your experiences with us!
"Have attended the Reiki share event several times, it's always a great experience. Kerry is awesome and so welcoming. A fun time for relaxation and peace shared with great people." - Sally Farmer
"Thank you for such a serene and restorative day yesterday! I am still enjoying the calm that you provided me over the course of the beautiful day. You were both so supportive and caring throughout the different activities, including a nice lunch break where I had the chance to connect with the other women. I liked the combination of 'traditional' yoga movements, with a mix of new activities. The chance to step out of my comfort zone in both of those areas was 'good practice' for me to develop courage. I appreciated that we had a chance to share our experiences of the day as we went along as well. I felt the pacing was very good, and appreciated your continued support for me to do what felt right physically was so nice. The music, and energy in the room with each other made for a beautiful day! You are individually gifted yoga teachers, and together make a strong, supportive, and cooperative Team. I am already looking to the next retreat and will extend the invitation to that event to my friends! Thank you so much! " Austine
"Kerry and Sue, thank you for a beautiful experience at the Women's Retreat! - Rita"
Thank you, wonderful experience that will be with me for a long time - Liza
Energize Your Intentions Session with Kerry
I went to an Energize Your Intentions session with Kerry in on September 4, 2017. During that session the words that came to me were Breathe and Believe. Since that fateful session I have been blessed with my healing business breathe ‘n believe (breathenbelieve.com). I would have NEVER have come this far without first having that Energize Your Intentions with Kerry. I knew I wanted to heal people but did not know how to move forward or what the heck to do. That session was the catalyst of so many wonderful healing events and more. I find everywhere I go I am with likeminded people, especially at Life Balance Yoga and Wellness. Everything aligned with my vibration and literally fell into place! I encourage you to book your session and hope that your intentions become the astounding joy mine did! Namaste Jeanine Tamboli
