Unsolicited Praise for NESCA Yoga Therapist Hannah Gould, M.Ed., RYT


January 22, 2015

The other day, quite unexpectedly, we received the following testimonial from a mom who had enrolled, with her son, in Hannah Gould's "Yoga Connects" program. Hannah has been coordinating yoga-based therapies at NESCA for seven years and, most recently, developed "Yoga Connects," a curriculum for visual learners that is remarkably effective with children on the autism spectrum. We've always thought that in Hannah, we had a gem; this letter confirms it. Nice work!  

"I had a wonderful time and learned a lot! I am confident that we will be using Yoga Connects in many ways throughout the day. The short sessions before homework continue to be a great way to transition from a preferred activity like video games to a less preferred activity. I am starting my mornings with waterfall flow. Just taking a moment to stretch and take deep breaths before I even leave my bedroom helps me immensely!..."

Hannah is a gifted teacher for both children and adults. She is patient, kind, and funny. Her accepting nature makes you feel immediately at ease. Both my son and I have learned through Hannah how to make yoga a part of our lives.

I used to be intimidated by yoga, but Hannah showed me how even short yoga sessions are beneficial and can fit into and enrich our lives. Our home practice may be a tad unorthodox, but through it we find a little more clarity each day. It reminds us to breathe deeply and find our inner strength."
