“My life is incredible now. I’m married to the love of my life and we just had our second baby, and I believe it has a lot to do with our work together. Having suffered from panic attacks my entire life, I had never found anything that truly helped me. Medication was a disaster and ultimately hurt my life rather than helped me. When I met you, I was in an acute state of anxiety and panic attacks and suffered from depression because of it. I had never tried yoga therapy but was willing to try anything. In our first few sessions, I felt a shift in my mood. I started to believe that your work might help. To make a long story short, it worked a miracle!  My life has totally changed and I now live panic attack-free! You have taught me tools to use and fall back on when I need them. It is more than possible to achieve a life free of anxiety and panic attacks without using medication. In fact, I believe that your yoga therapy has been THE ONLY thing that has truly ever worked and has continued to work long term. I am so blessed to have met you." — Katrina, Los Angeles.
"Dear Goli ~ I feel most thankful for these experiences. Your spirit, your kindness and your love have literally changed my life already....I wish I could explain in words how I feel. Let me put it like this: I feel in the deepest place in my heart that the rest of my time on Planet Earth will be happier, healthier, richer and more rewarding now that you and I have reconnected. I truly feel that in my soul. Thank you for everything.”  — Brigham, film maker
“I want to thank you again for *everything*. Your support and guidance during this very challenging time has been a Godsend. You truly are a gifted healer Goli - so much more than I ever knew when I initially contacted you about doing yoga....It felt so wonderful going out to the bday party tonight with a clear, calm, unadulterated mind. In the past I probably would’ve gotten stoned before or at the party- but tonight I had a great time without the substances and I felt 100x more connected to everyone without the fog clouding my mind.”  — Adam, Fashion Photographer
“I used to hate my body and even the sound of my breath. The techniques that Goli has taught me has changed my life. I live each day differently because of Goli’s unique approach to yoga, and am able to find amazing calm and consciousness through her distinct techniques.”  — Virginia, Media Publisher
“You have no idea how you have helped me with my recovery. The breathing and yoga you’ve taught me has helped me fight with my obsessive thoughts and eating disorder and helped me find a place of calm, peace and serenity that has been missing in my life.”  — Shannon, Advertising Executive
“I felt alive after our yoga practice. I don’t think this would have been possible without the help of Goli. She totally inspires me. I’ve never had anyone in my life encourage me like she does. She believes in me and is so positive and that has helped me believe in myself. I’m forever grateful for this.”  — Allison, Grad student“
You are an extraordinary individual. You will never know how much you truly helped me find myself again.”  — Nancy, Mother of four - Former Olympic Athlete
“Goli is a truly life-changing yogi to those she works with. Unlike many “fitness” yogis out there, her talent is working to change those from the inside out. Specializing in anxiety disorders–she truly changed my life and I am now panic attack-free!”   — Katrina, Mother
