I love Toni's class, which I take on Tuesday and Friday mornings.

She has a great ability to support each student at their own level, and she's a wonderful teacher.

The camera was an intrusion in the peaceful focus of the class, and I tried to keep a distance. If she's willing, I may take more photos of Toni doing yoga on her own after a class.

Toni Swikis teaches at Eclipse College Street and other locations. See her website [butterflyoga.com] for information.

Toni thoughtfully watching her students during the Tuesday morning yoga class.

Always positive, letting you know what you are doing well, and offering ways to 'play with' the position - encouraging us to find our own way in to the experience.

You can see how she's truly interested in each student's practice, no matter what level we're at.

She's full enthusiasm for yoga, so her gentleness has the sparkle of high spirits.

demonstrating subtle adjustments in a posture.

Her necklace says love, and she's true to her message.

finding her way into a balancing posture. yes, she's so lovely. and she's more then that, too.

      Did you find it difficult doing the exercises with the camera in hand? :) Couldn't resist. Very intense pictures and she looks like she knows what she's doing. Good photos....... :)
