  • "Thank you Lori!  I have learned so much from you and all the other teachers at Prairie in the 500 Hour Advanced Training.  I think of your studio as the "University of Yoga."  I look forward to many more years of practicing and studying with you and all the members of Prairie."
    Juli Cronin, Elmhurst, IL 

  • "I want to tell you how much I enjoy being a member at Prairie Yoga -- I love the personalized instruction (I am always amazed what a difference a seemingly small adjustment makes!), the consistently very high quality of the classes, and the culture of genuineness (if that's a word!), acceptance and laughter in the studio.  One of my friends has also started attending some classes with me and really likes the classes, and I have also mentioned it to other friends." - Lalita Jagadeesen, Naperville, IL
  • "I am so grateful for Prairie Yoga- the studio is a refuge from "fad" yoga. The programs, teachers, resources and physical space itself allow for learning in the most supportive, yet challenging environment I've ever known. The best is that I've only scratched the surface."AnnElise Cederland, Woodridge, IL

  • "I am so grateful I had the privilege of attending the Trauma-Sensitive Yoga workshop yesterday with Alissa Catiis and Eileen Rosete. It was powerful and inspiring and I walked away with concepts to incorporate with all my future students! This would be a great requirement for all trainees! Thanks Lori!" Rita Dianati, Elmhurst, IL

  • "I wanted to tell you how glad I am to have discovered your studio. I live in the north suburbs so I don’t spend much time in Lisle, but I was so impressed with you and your teachers. Everyone was so collegial and kind and I can tell you have built up a lovely community." - Bonnie Lucas, Wilmette, IL

  • "I just wanted to tell you how happy I have been with your instructors. I didn’t think I would find a good fit for me outside of traveling to Chicago, but so far the instructors have been exceptional. I have a home studio that I attend regularly, but they are making changes that are more fitness than yoga-minded. I have been to Rebecca’s, Tricia’s, your class [Lori's], and now Marinda’s class and they are awesome. Thank you for providing an excellent studio in the suburbs." - Bridget O’Brien Bandurski, Mokena, IL

  • "It has taken years to gain the strength and courage to step into a yoga studio at my size and weight previously thinking I could not deal with the stereotype of the long, thin pretzel-bending woman next to me and I might be a distraction to the more advanced student. Out of severe physical pain and trying to manage the grief I was experiencing from the loss of both my parents in 8 months, I needed to just dive in and stop assuming I could not experience and enjoy yoga. I stepped into Prairie on the recommendation of a good friend and was overwhelmed with how I was accepted. No judgments at Prairie, ever!" - Michele K., Lisle, IL

  • "I like that classes are small, the studio is clean and welcoming and it has all the necessary props you may need to practice yoga. The teachers are all very knowledgeable and take their time to adjust your poses." - Gladys Valerio, Warrenville, IL

  • "I came to a class with a Groupon a year and a half ago. I quickly became a member and go 2 or 3 times a week. The instructors are very knowledgeable, understand your limits and help with adjustments and use of props. I am gaining body awareness I never had. I am very happy I found your studio. It's making a big difference in how I feel and am able to move. I recommend Prairie Yoga to anyone interested in yoga." - Kathy Seidler, Downers Grove, IL

  • "I love that Jennifer has taken the time to get to know each of us in class. She works with all of our separate physical needs extremely well. We are so lucky to have her. I never thought I would be able to do anything close to yoga after a stroke and multiple surgeries, but Jennifer has given me so much help and confidence that I'm actually getting so much stronger and, most importantly, having a great time with the class. I just wanted to let you know how great Jennifer is and how much she helps us do our absolute best. I also enjoyed working with Reeny the last two weeks. Thanks so much for having such a wonderful place to go to with such an extraordinary staff to teach and guide us." - Sue Colangelo, Glen Ellyn, IL

  • "Polly is fantastic! She focuses on individual needs while giving great instruction to the group. She teaches my gentle yoga class, and I would go every single day if it was available!" - Debbie Butman, Naperville, IL

  • "I attend Marindas classes regularly. I love her easy manner, yet spot-on instruction. I enjoy the focus of the classes at Prairie and I appreciate all the workshops offered for continuing and deepening my understanding of yoga. I love Prairie Yoga and the community of yogis that you have nurtured!" - Tiffany Lichter, Lemont, IL

  • "All the Prairie Yoga teachers are professional, knowledgable, and caring. The studio has great props, wall ropes and swings, and the windows give lots of natural light. The classes are a complete yoga experience. I am always satisfied." - Joan Binder, Western Springs, IL

  • "I really liked our teacher, Reeny. The beginner class was a perfect introduction for me. The studio was always clean, the people in the studio (both teachers and students) were always friendly and the setting where I can see the trees was perfect for me. I will attend all the classes that are appropriate for me on the days I have available." - George Stoll

  • "I enjoy the focus on proper alignment and the proper use of props. I learn so much in every class. I also appreciate the different approaches of the various instructors making each class unique. My back feels good and I am gaining flexibility. I plan on continuing to attend the studio classes. The studio is spacious and comfortable." - Chris Gattuso, Addison, IL

  • "I absolutely love your studio! I have been enjoying all the classes and instructors very much.
    " - Stacy Glodkowski, Orland Park, IL

  • "Prairie provides a real approach to yoga. The teachers are experienced and bring a true yogic practice to the studio. The community is kind and friendly and I recommend it all the time. I appreciate the detailed alignment  cues. The depth it provides for me as I follow my breath and work at quieting my mind is truly 'yoga', not just another yoga gym class. I appreciate the advanced teachers and training Prairie provides, as well as the whole 'yogic' experience with om, chanting, pranayama, meditation and life talk. I am very grateful!" - Laury Hartman, Naperville, IL

  • "I continue to practice at Prairie for several reasons. The teachers are extremely knowledgeable and do a good job of leading classes that explore the postures in a new and different way. It's evident they each have a solid personal practice and take many workshops to stay current. I like when they teach students something they learned from one of their master teachers. They are warm and friendly and remembered my name when I first started practicing at Prairie. The studio is well-stocked with props and is always very clean." - Niki Ludington, Glen Ellyn, IL

  • "April is extremely conscientious about positioning and taking care of your spine and joints. Because of my own personal needs, this is a very high priority to me. April also does an amazing job of remembering which students have which needs, what they have to be careful about. As a student I appreciate this. She also demonstrates an open mind, willingness to learn and wonderful acceptance of whether her body is able to perform a given posture on a given day. This is a great example for those of us who tend to be frustrated if we aren't able to move as far on one day as we were a previous day..." - Susan Blair, Naperville, IL

  • "I attend on average three classes a week and enjoy the variety of techniques/styles each teacher uses. One teacher is very focused on alignment and technique, one more on mind and body connection, and one is more anatomy-centered in her approach. The combination of these classes assists me in my practice as all three aspects are crucial. All the teachers I have ever practiced with are welcoming and want you to get the most benefit out of your practice. I like that the teachers take time for quetsions as well. The studio is always very well kept and props are readily accessible." - Mary Dorner, Lisle, IL

  • "I travel an hour to come to Prairie Yoga. On my first day of the intermediate yoga teacher training, I was a little nervous. I knew my 200 hour training lacked any study of the yoga sutras or yoga philosophy. I thought I would be "behind" the other teachers. Right away, I felt a strong connection to Lori and Tricia's style of teaching. I knew after the first day I would make the commitment for the 500 hour program. It won't be easy, I know, but knowing Lori, Tricia and the amazing guest instructors in combination with the challenging curriculum and requirements, I will become a more well rounded and knowledgable yoga instructor." - Laura Reynolds, Winnetka, IL

  • "I just wanted to thank you from the bottom of my heart for being such amazing mentors. You have truly given me so many gifts through your teachings, and I shall use them  to help heal others. I am incredibly proud to say that I went to Prairie Yoga for my yoga teacher training :) and that that year was one of the most amazing and fulfilling years of my life." - April Berta, Naperville, IL

  • "I've been a member of Prairie Yoga for a year and a half.  I had never practiced yoga prior to joining and I have to admit I've been bitten by the yoga bug.  I've attended practices regularly since joining generally going 4-5 times a week.  I especially appreciate the quality of the instructors I've practiced under at Prairie Yoga.  Each and everyone is dedicated and genuinely passionate in their instructor role and committed to the development of their student practitioners.  Prairie Yoga affords each instructor the freedom to express themselves in their own unique way and the varied nature and the personality of their instruction ensures a practice that is at once familiar but never repetiously old or stale.  I've also been grateful for the help and friendship offered by my fellow student practioners many of whom I’ve discovered are enrolled in formal training to become instructors themselves!  As for myself, my practice has dramatically improved my health and well being; I have far fewer aches and pains and I feel more energetic and peaceful in my daily life.  I would highly recommend yoga for anyone interested in improved emotional, mental, and physical well being and I can't think of a better studio to practice in than Prairie Yoga." - Tim Seidler, Downers Grove, IL
