MJ brings an energy that is so positive & invigorating that you feel like you’re attending the most fun party EVER. On a personal note, I lost 30 lbs in 4 months in her classes and have kept it off for 3 years.” – Christine Tyson, Class Participant and Instructor Trainee 



LOVE LOVE LOVE MJ’s classes! She is such a great instructor – enjoyed her humour in an otherwise serious yoga practice.” Julie Ledvay-Lalonde, Dynamic Retreats
