“We operate a wellness hub and teach over 16 classes per week of hatha and chair yoga with 5 instructors… there is a group of seniors who have requested something they could follow along with at home and our grant advisor has approved us purchasing dvd’s to help with this! After a comprehensive search of what is available on the market, and review by all of our staff on their votes for which product they felt most represented how/what we teach and our philosophy, we all felt Paula’s teaching best aligned with our philosophy surrounding ability at any age! We felt she would be an inspiring example. ” Heather I., CEO of Wellness Hub, Canada
