'Having had the blessed experience of being and breathing in the goddess temples of India, I can only say that being in Prema's yoga class comes in as a close second! It isn't the choice of the Centering Meditation she begins with each class (although I must say they are always meaningful and timely), or the flow of Asanas she guides us through (each class an inner and outer journey). Neither is it the exquisite music she DJ's, nor the sacred meditations/mantras/mudras and movements she inspires.
IT IS ALL OF THESE AND MORE!
Prema embodies the Divine Feminine Goddess and she encourages and embraces all those in her beautiful presence to do the same...in his and her own unique ways.
Prema creates a temple of beauty, passion, grace and compassion in which each participant has the opportunity to experience their own strength and divinity...a goddess template, indeed!'

"Picture yourself on a secret beach on some far-off island. You’re on a hammock, under a palm tree. The crystal blue ocean quietly pulls in and pushes away. There is this breeze. One you’ve not felt before. It’s gentle, rejuvenating, healing and filled with love.
This is how it feels to be in Prema’s yoga class. And the craziest part of all is that image of the beach, that feeling of total serenity is happening in your own home, magically beamed through Prema’s incandescent spirit via Zoom! Oh, the new world.
Discovering Prema is as rewarding and dreamy as is coming upon a secret beach on some far-off island where the medicinal blue waters quietly - and ever so lovingly - pull in and push away. "

"Incredibly beautiful and such a “Shantiful” morning. You have the most beautiful soul and you exude peace and calm and warmth and love. You are a Goddess of goodness!
You were born to be a master yogi and meditation teacher.
I appreciate you long after class ends and cannot wait for the next incredible session. "
~ Mona Fisher, Student
"I have never met a teacher that is more present than Prema Posner. When she speaks you feel like the only person in the class. Prema’s classes are a highlight of my week. They are accessible to all levels and she has a unique way of combining the spiritual with the practical. Prema pushes each of us to move beyond fear to find undiscovered abilities and she teaches us to connect with our own inner guide in any pose. I love how she incorporates words of wisdom from spiritual teachers and I love how she includes her students in her own spiritual journey."

"Prema- one of the sweetest souls and best teachers! I met Prema about 6 months ago and immediately knew there was something very special about her. Prema Posner is a real deal yogi, she walks the walk and talks the talk. I LOVE taking her classes because you can tell she's a great teacher at a base level- strong, well thought out flows, specific cues, and nice adjustments but unlike so many Prema goes deeper. There's always a little lesson woven in, whether we are chanting the Ganesha mantra or focusing on Manipura Chakra. She also always reads a beautiful quote at the end of her classes. Teaching us mudras, chants, all while getting in a terrific flow is why I Love Prema. She's also always there to talk and answer questions anything yoga related. Once I picked her brain for about an hour after class about teaching yoga in other countries and her adventures. I could go on and on about this woman! The last thing I'll say is my favorite thing about Prema is you can tell how much she loves yoga and loves teaching it, it oozes out of her, and that's what I look for in a teacher!"

"I wanted to share my thoughts with you because you are so valued and appreciated. I am speaking primarily for myself but my sister feels the same. We both love your practices and teaching style. We started our morning call talking about the impact Yoga has made in our lives. We talked about the lessons learned and how we are incorporating them into our life’s journey. We both believe that we are definitely more grateful for the little things because we are living more in the moment. We talk about our intentions and how we can make today a better day not just for ourselves but for others as well. We love that we have found Yoga but especially you.
You are a gift that has made our hearts happy and we wish only beauty in your life."
~ Robin Britton, Student
"I've been practicing Yoga for about 30 years. Upon moving to Delray Beach, Florida, I found a wonderful Yoga Teacher, named Prema Jen Posner. Unlike my earlier teacher, Prema is young and vital, but like her she is gentle, accomplished, spiritual and wise. Her classes are challenging and complex, bringing one on a journey both physical and spiritual. Her instruction is very clear and logical, while never losing the higher aspect of the process.
The asanas, meditations and guiding words are accompanied by perfectly chosen and calibrated music. The harmony that her class creates lasts beyond the mat. The personal attention Prema provides her students enables them to perfect their poses, without disrupting the rhythm of the class.
She is a truly inspired teacher and embodiment of why I study Yoga."

"Gratitude fills me all year long but this time of Thanksgiving reminds me to speak it out loud to others. Your teaching fills me with gratitude and is one of the real joys that have come from our pandemic…being in your classes all the way from Rhode Island. Thank you for finding me…or me finding you…or finding each other."
"Thank you for a lovely class this morning and hopefully our collective lights continue to shine brightly and heal. That was wonderful. Speaking of healing, you are! Your presence, your calm face and your beautiful voice embody the epitome of healing."
~ Online Yoga Students
"Prema’s teachings are a unique alchemical combination of her devotion, her intellect, her world-view, and her immense love of humanity. Prema truly embodies the yogic philosophies and weaves her extensive body of knowledge with a genuine dose of love and intuition, caring for the well-being of each and every student she encounters.
Understanding that we are all students, Prema strives to unearth our most authentic self. For her, this is not a career but a calling, and she devotes her day to day life to mindful compassionate living, truly embodying what it means to hold fast to yogic principles in a messy, chaotic, often unstable world."

"When I was in practice today, I was asking myself why you are so special to me. I thought you are a beacon of light that shines with so much genuine love and concern for everyone. When you ended the practice today with the beacon reference in the message, I thought how fitting. You lead by example.
Also, I took a continuing education class for my OT license and it was Medical Therapeutic Yoga for people living with MS. The reason that I am telling you all of this is because of your extensive knowledge of Yoga and the body, you really provide the necessary adaptive techniques to make Yoga attainable to everyone regardless of limitations.
So, again I say Thank you and stay well and safe."

"Prema brings a special kind of magic to every one of her yoga classes - a magic that kept me coming back. Whether you're a beginner or more advanced, she'll make you feel welcome and help you feel comfortable with yourself in every asana.
Prema puts a lot of passion and energy into every class, and she helped foster the passion inside me to grow in my yoga journey. I can't wait to be in her class again!"
~ Bessie Ratskof, Student at the Sanctuary in Koh Phangan, Thailand
" I wanted to let you know that you continue to provide a welcomed calm and positivity that is so appreciated especially during this unique time. Please know that after each practice, I am so thankful that I was able to participate and take the lessons learned into my daily life. So I am sending my love and positive energy to you and your beautiful family. You truly are an amazing person and teacher."
" It was wonderful to see you and hear your beautiful voice. You are and continue to be such an inspiration. Since today was my first time using Zoom and my internet was trying to derail my session, I was saying to myself “how would Prema handle this”. Because of you, I stayed trying, didn’t give up and completed the practice. My body and mind is saying I appreciate the
time you gave me."
~ Online Yoga Students
"Prema creates a beautiful yoga class by being warm, challenging and supportive to everyone that comes to class. Her passion and knowledge come through in her choice of postures and description of the benefits of each of these for the individual. I also enjoy the vibrant spiritual focus of Prema’s yoga which makes being in her class a holistic wellbeing experience. This combination has brought positive change into the lives of the marginalized people of the New Farm Neighbourhood Centre who participate in our class. It is a joy to see the increased positivity and focus that I gain from the class reflected in their faces also. Thank you, Prema!”
~ Fiona Hunt, Manager, New Farm Community Centre - Brisbane, Australia

"First and foremost I want to say thank-you for this most valuable lesson today. I appreciate that you donated your time in order to provide coping skills and positive, impactful energy during this crazy, tumultuous time. I am a believer that each experience in life provides an opportunity to learn and grow as a person.
When I met you, I was recovering from breast cancer and I desperately
needed emotional stability back in my life. You have provided the seed of positivity, beauty, knowledge, compassion, and love. You really are a light that continues to shine brightly in our world. I am so happy I have discovered Yoga and you!! PS: my sister thinks you are awesome too!!"

"My Favorite Yoga Experience! I have been taking Prema's class throughout my pregnancy and look forward to it every week. She has an amazing calming presence and voice that brings you deep into your yoga practice. While staying centered and focused in some yoga classes can be challenging, the flow of her class is perfect. Her dedication to her students as she walks around the room as a gentle guide helps you stay present. She uses the perfect amount of reminders to readjust or align your body properly (but acknowledges that you should listen to your own body and do what feels comfortable.) I also love the words of wisdom that she shares at the end of every class, and she also has a beautiful selection of music that enhances the experience. Everyone in the class is so at peace as we all linger for a few extra seconds in a final pose with our eyes closed and our hands at heart center. It's clear to me that the students are actually connecting to their yoga practice in her class and not just going through the movements. Prema's ability to fill the room with a positive, loving, and peaceful energy is contagious."

"I met Prema Posner at The Sanctuary in Thailand and her classes were a wonderful place for me to find my inner peace to start off the day. She guides her students very thoughtfully and with much warmth and grace. I really looked forward to joining her class every other day I was there!"

“It’s hard to express on text how deeply your practices have resonated and how much strength I am finding in these challenging times remembering your words and mantras. You have a special teaching gift and I feel blessed to have that in my life now more than ever. And it’s important to me that you know this.”
“Every Saturday morning it takes longer and longer to come out from my practice. Such a wonderful time for my self. I have been writing things down to remember the journey after practice.”
"Prema Posner is a Blessing! She is an amazing teacher and person. She somehow makes a difficult class seem effortless. You know you've worked hard, but feel so much energy when you walk out of class. Adjustments are always perfect! From her playlist to her readings, I couldn't ask for a better experience. She has a true gift, and I feel very blessed to have her as a teacher."

“That was an amazing class. Very restorative and a great way to start the week. Prema you’re a wonderful teacher and a natural healer. ”
"Prema Posner was a very thoughtful and down to earth teacher. As a newcomer to yoga, she was able to explain the postures in ways that I was able to digest. After several weeks with her, I saw a lot of improvement and increased confidence in my yoga practice. I continue to do yoga every day, and I'm grateful that Prema was there to give me the knowledge and confidence to begin my yoga journey."
