    • Rudy is masterful, patient, organized, wonderful.

      ~Alfa Rivard

    • Rudy is the best Yoga teacher I’ve ever had. It was a perfect combination of learning, relaxation, spiritual atmosphere, humor and support.

      ~Janie Goldenberg

    • Rudy is a professional yoga teacher. He has tremendous gift of building relationships to each of us in the workshop. There’s a wonderful aura during each session, a calming and accepting air.

      ~Hannah Lindenblatt

    • Rudy has a great delivery—calm intentional, clear- and is non judgmental and funny too! He offered many useful modifications and slow and gentle entries into poses that I will incorporate into my beginners Kripalu yoga classes.

      ~Lisa Friedman Reich

    • Wonderful class/workshop. Practice was a beautiful moving meditation.

      ~Emily Gobler

    • I was most impressed by Rudy Peirce’s style of teaching.  His directions were clear.  His primary concern seemed to be imparting a safe, non-injurious approach. I liked very much his simplicity and humility.  He was not presenting himself as a star with products for sale.

      ~Domina Matthews Page, Therapist

    • Thanks so much, Rudy. Working with you got me hooked on yoga and meditation and I’m finally fitting both into my life on a regular basis. (Although Rudy is younger than me, I want to grow up to be like him.)

      With gratitude,
