Jonni-Lyn is yoga!There are lots of teachers passing through our lives but few of them we remember all our life…Jonni is all she teach…peace,happiness,love! True love flows through her eyes, smile and speech. Thank you Jonni for teaching me, for being the person you are, and thank my karma for bringing y in my life!
I like how involved and passionate you are with your teaching and your students. I’ve learnt how important it is to be enthusiastic about the things you love, it creates so much energy.
I become a better person everyday I practice yoga.
I smile more and think more carefully.
Go and enjoy a great class.
Στο μάθημα σου κάθε φορά ένιωθα ότι κάνω ιδιαίτερο (personal lesson). Όσα άτομα και να συμμετείχαν στο μάθημα και σε όποιο επίπεδο και να ήταν, ένιωθα ότι είσαι δίπλα μου με παρακολουθείς συνέχεια, με βοηθάς να έχω σωστή ευθυγράμμιση σε κάθε θέση και μου θα μου έδινες την κατάλληλη παραλλαγή για το σώμα μου. Επίσης η φιλοσοφική προσέγγιση και ο τρόπος που με έκανες να βλέπω τα πράγματα με βοήθησαν να ηρεμώ, να αγαπήσω τον εαυτό μου και μετέπειτα όλους τους γύρω μου και με έκαναν να συνειδητοποιήσω πολλές πτυχές μου. Ακόμα μου άρεσε ότι η προσέγγιση ήταν πολύ προσιτή, ανθρώπινη, σύγχρονη και με χιούμορ, σαν ένα «σοβαρό παιχνίδι»! Το σημαντικότερο που μου έμαθες είναι να αντλώ δύναμη στις δυσκολίες, να μην προσκολλώ σε καταστάσεις, να προχωράω μπροστά με χαμόγελο και αγάπη!

I first met Jonni as a teacher in my training. She stood out from the other teachers that I had met that far, being so wonderfully loving and caring! Her classes have always amazed me, she teaches with such passion and enthusiasm! Her classes are a beautiful blend of spirituality and attention to alignment and safety, careful adjustments and encouraging words. I always leave her classes inspired to be a better person and a better teacher! Jonnie is a one of a kind teacher who will inspire you to love! Not just love yoga, but love everyone and everything! She’s such a rare kind of person, she embraces life with such warmth and openness that it’s made to look easy!

I love Jonni’s style. An integration of sweaty vinyasa style which I love, with philosophical concepts that help you move forward on and off the mat. She encourages you to relate your yoga practice with yourself, and walk the path of self -improvement from the mat into the world. She is authentic, she speaks from personal experience and she has a great sense of humour. She is truly an inspiration! It is a great physical but also mental practice that makes you move forward not only as a practitioner but also as a person. If you take Jonni’s classes you never be the same person again. If you are thinking of becoming a yoga teacher, she is the TEACHER. Great style, great attitude and comprehensive training. Philosophy related to real life and practical teaching methodology that will help you teach from the start!
Jonni-Lyn Friel is always inspiring , detail oriented, reliable and pleasant in each and every yoga class I have attended. She is teaching from her heart with care and undivided attention. I must express my deepest gratitude towards her for the very deep personal and transformational experience, physically, mentally and spiritually. She has offered me so far a trip into myself and an opportunity to become stronger and understand in deep what yoga can do for my life and the others. I will close with a quote “Being well-taught is not the same thing as being transformed.” ~ Ruth Haley Barton. That ΄s Jonni of our heart!
