"I just really wanted to thank you for everything: prenatal yoga, hypnobirthing, hypnotherapy, and mom and baby yoga. You're a wonderful instructor and I know I wouldn't have had such a positive pregnancy and birth had it not been for you. So... Thank you very much! I'm missing yoga, and I hope you'll still be teaching when I'm pregnant again."
