"Ruah is one of the kindest and most talented women it has been my good fortune to know. She was called to teach yoga and meditation; those who have the opportunity to learn from her should leap at the chance."

"I absolutely recommend going on a retreat with Ruah.  No hyperbole, I think a retreat with Ruah is prescriptive for a life best lived. Ruah is the ultimate guide. She leads with clarity, grace, precision, wisdom, and abundant love. She meets and guides each person in the unique way they need to take their yoga practice (on and off the mat) to the next level. Practicing with Ruah in such an intimate, hands-on way elevated my practice in profound and long-lasting ways that I will be grateful for throughout my journey as an aspiring yogi. I left this retreat inspired, strong and ready (though another day would still have been lovely!) to go back into the world and bring my fullest, most loving, and present self to others. This retreat was a truly life-affirming experience."
"Thank you, Ruah, from the bottom of my heart, for all the time, energy, love, and generosity of spirit that you brought to each and every moment of this retreat. I love how you facilitated us to all authentically connect, take time for ourselves and come away with a newly discovered community. My cup overflows."
