Testimonials

The retreat at Skjerjehamn was for me the best weekend in a very long time, due to the total of it all: the surroundings, the estetique, the art, the beauty: food, rhythm, friendship, respect, humanity, wisdom, care, smile and friendliness. Dionne manages to create positive and including group dynamics in her retreats!

I feel that a session or a retreat with Dionne is an experience that is good for body, mind, soul and spirit. I think she is highly professional- she knows how to teach and tailor yoga to people in a mixed group of people at all levels: from new beginners to experienced yogis.

Dionne is a beatiful soul: she has wisdom of life and wisdom about what it means to be a human. This wisdom makes her a wonderful yoga teacher….just being herself is inspiring. She shines….she is full of love, care and support. And she is creative, with great sense of estetique and offers retreats in beautiful surroundings with lots of beauty in food, music, lightening, activities and yoga.

I cannot fully express my sincere appreciation for the amount of teaching, sharing and inspiration you provided during the retreat. Your passion for music made the classes enjoyable and awakening after long winter. Thanks to your ability to create safe and friendly atmosphere under the classes a quality of my practice has changed drastically and I am not afraid of challenging myself. I feel grateful for having such a talented and devoted teacher!

Dionne is, hand on my heart, my favorite yoga teacher in Bergen! Finally I found a Yoga teacher who understood that yoga is so much more than just focus on the body. I really like how she build up her classes with working on a goal for yourself. The classes is calming for the mind, however they gives you new energy and helps you get back to yourself in a busy everyday.

‘Dionne’s class is both calming and invigorating. She has a natural ability to speak in a easing tone which puts students into ‘relax mode’ instantly. Her teaching style focuses on safe alignment of the body, coordination of breath and movement as she guides the class flow from one posture to another. She has a vibrant personality which is reflected in her classes.’

‘Dionne is a calm and patient teacher and takes time to ensure every move is explained and executed carefully with attention to the little details – this made all the difference. She is encouraging and I felt empowered to do yoga. As I have only had a few lessons in the past and was worried about some of the moves – Dionne was able to guide me and she show me alternatives if I needed something easier to do. As we went she explained the moves and the benefits of the postures – the lesson flowed really well. I would recommend Dionne to anyone for yoga.’

I had been contemplating starting Yoga, but never felt confident enough to be within a group environment where I felt I was out of my depth.   A friend recommended Dionne Elizabeth and knowing my character, felt she would do wonders for my confidence.

Dionne was a true inspiration to my first steps into Yoga.  For me, having a one to one session was such a great way for me to see if I enjoyed Yoga, in fact, it was a “try before you buy” approach.   In all honesty, it is Dionne’s gentle, calming and professional

approach that makes me feel relaxed and encouraged to complete the routine ‘for me’. My confidence has grown. BT1

I would strongly recommend Dionne to any future employer, clients, or personal clients.  I feel a sense of real achievement ~ and Dionne is superb at giving praise and additional support when needed. Her timing and intuition to my emotions are impeccable. It is not easy to express in words just how valuable and important her classes have been.

There can be nothing more important than a patient and caring instructor, helping me to grow and foster my practice of Yoga as well as integrating a healthy lifestyle awareness and understanding of my body.   I look forward to practicing yoga together for many years.’
