    "Sam is a very caring and experienced yoga teacher. Sams classes give you a wonderful balance of yoga postures, at the end of the class you will feel that your whole body will have had a gentle workout, muscles, tendons, nerves and mind as well as your lymphatic system. He is very observant and will notice areas that you may find difficult. He will encourage you, but never push you beyond your personal limits. We are work in progress and all will come in time. I would highly recommend Sam to anybody, a yoga teacher at its best."

    "Have you ever been to a Yoga class and wondered why you were doing a certain posture? Attending Sam Rao's Yoga class will enhance your knowledge about the human body to no end. Sam's warm friendly approach works well with his clear instructions and HUGE knowledge about Yoga and the anatomy. You will discover how Yoga can improve your health and well-being. Great classes for beginners and more advanced students. I couldn't recommend more highly!"
