About Lonny‎ > ‎


"Lonny was the best of all my yoga teachers. His instructions were always clear and detailed. He was patient, compassionate, and fun. The relaxations he gave at the end of the class were pure bliss. Because of Lonny, I became a teacher and he has influenced my own teaching in so many ways. Thank you, Lonny."
