Testimonials –
“Rosangel is a bright light in dark times like we are finding ourselves in right now… The Appreciation Yoga circle she has created is a wonderful and safe place to explore how you are feeling, thinking, being, and a place to make community with awesome people who you might not otherwise ever get to know. I love getting to go to “Brooklyn” and visit RA and her sister and friends. I felt very welcome as soon as I joined the group and I enjoyed the way it flowed from conversation to stretching to laughter and journaling exercises (not necessarily in that order). If you are curious to try out Appreciation Yoga, I say GO FOR IT!” Zia Cross

“The Appreciation Yoga with Rosangel is definitely something I recommend. She holds wisdom and energy that is well needed, especially for these trying times. The space she builds will have you feeling safe and tranquil as you and the other students take part of this journey with her.” – J. Fells

“Rosangel’s appreciation yoga during this very challenging time has been a huge light and blessing. It’s such a wonderful way to stay connected to the community and meet new people who are also facing the challenge. I’m so grateful that Rosangel has opened this space for us to share together” – S. Hartlove

“if you are looking for a place to feel safe and be connected with like minded people that this appreciation class is for you. In hard times like this makes me feel grateful to know that I have a family of people that are viewing life through the same lenses as me. It helps to ease some of the stress away and relaxes my mind.” Shay

“This is a gathering like no other because it’s Facilitated by Rosangel Perez. It’s because she brings in her gentle, kind and unique way to assist you moving out of stuck spaces.
All levels are welcome because this isn’t about checking your alignments in your tree pose but how aligned and in tune you are with yourself. Weeeepppaaaa! Eso fue un undecover fuetazo. Join in! Step out of your comfort zone! Give yourself some self care time!” – A. Burgos
