Dear Wailana, I have had the pleasure of watching your program for about a year and a half. I came upon it accidentally, or maybe by fate when my dad became ill and i had to make early calls to him and my mom. Immediately your manner and voice were the soothing connection i needed. As I began following the program i felt better. In fact it was and is the only time i feel a sense of peace and ease from the stressors of life. Living in NYC alone can do that, but with family issues, so much more.
I had my mom also watch--at 84 she is good at doing some of the program too. Six months ago my dad passed away and my mom broke her hip. This program has saved me and i have written wnye telling them how vital the show is and what a resource it is. I have your tapes, just bought a mat so i feel even more of a connection. I am hoping that soon my mom can return to practicing. She does the breathing and arm stretches and it helps. For me, it is a way to find myself again. I hope i do but wanted you to know how you touch and help heal people. Bless you and thank you.
Over the years, many people who have been introduced to yoga by Wai Lana, or who have been inspired by her in their yoga practice, have written with questions or gracious expressions of gratitude.

I've started out for the first time in years to try to exercise to get in shape, all of the programs seem to want too much from you ( me, that is, of course).
We have Denise Austin, Jennifer Galardi: who are all good athletes and stuff, but none of their workouts seem as easy as yours. i've always wanted to be flexible and the other programs never seem to do that. then i saw on the TV guide channel Wai Lana Yoga, and i just started to watch it since then.
I gain new experiences every time i do your yoga. i watch it every day now, and i actually lost a few pounds by doing it. i've become one of your biggest fans or your biggest fan and thank you for sharing yoga with everyone, you really make it seem easy. i hope you write me back, it would really mean a lot to me.
Hello Dear Wai Lana,
I am an Ecuadorian fan, I love you so much, you change my life, I practice yoga every day with your videos.
Thanks for your help, you are exceptional, I want to know you.
Thank you Wai Lana, for making the gift of yoga so readily available to all of us!
I am so happy to discover the website, after finding your program that airs on PBS, here, locally. Not only do you offer us a broad education in the Yoga lifestyle, but do it with such beauty and elegance. I have two little ones that enjoy your program right along with me and we look forward to the time together practicing yoga with you. Again, thank you for your outstanding work and effort. We are most grateful.

I am sure you know of a tradition when a young woman who gets just married and starting a new life, as a wife and soon as a new mother get all the goodies from her mother such as a beautiful table set, bed linens etc etc for her new life. Well, I feel like you equipped me with all that I need - wonderful cookbooks, relaxation, body workout, mind and heart food. Also healthy activities for kids as well as the body care and ayurvedic formulas.
Hi Wai Lana a thousand thankyous!
My daughter has fallen asleep to your sweet, calm voice for 5 years now. Your cds have helped her with her sleep problems, nightmares, night terrors, anxiety and bullying etc.
I bought her many different visualisations over time but she has not wanted to listen to any others but yours.
We've had fun with your cards, books and yoga video too. You've been a big and healing part of our lives.
Love and gratitude to you all-ways Rosemary(mum) and Layla (9yrs) from Sydney Australia.
Thank you so much for your yoga CD. It helps me every day. I had a stem cell transplant and use yoga as my therapy! Your voice and energy is cosmic.
Dear Wai Lana: I found you on PBS here in Las Vegas, about September, 2010. LOVE your program, and here is why: I took vinyasa yoga a few years back, then got lazy, big mistake. Then when I found you and started getting back into Yoga, I was very happy with how you conduct your session. And by that I mean, your every move is accompanied with exact and detailed audio instruction to match the video and your movement through the poses. Soooo important to someone re-connecting, AND for the beginner. I am 56 years young, still fairly flexible, and certainly aspire to become half as flexible as you are. You are truly an inspiration, and a beautiful soul that the planet is so very fortunate to have. Thank you for sharing your knowledge. And I am happy to be your student.!
Gratitude, blessings, and love!
Dear Wai Lana!
You are an amazing woman that changed my world with just one video. You made me feel better and gave me the strength and hope and you convinced me that I can make it! That's just amazing how person is able to do this, you share love and hope.
Dear Wai Lana,
Yoga has helped me with flexibility in a relaxed way, it's so amazing!

You are verry beautiful and your show is almost equally as beautiful.
Keep on, keepin on and we look forward to trying some of your products. I truly hope you and your family have a very happy holiday season and a fabulous 2011!
Lots of love,
I was doing yoga every morning at 7 am for about two years while you were on NY TV every morn at 7.
You helped relieve my torn rotater shoulder problem and the regular yoga made my tight shoulders and back pain go away. The moves, wonderful music and your voice was soothing and it made my day start peacefully and in shape. Now they took you off that station and I miss it very much.
It is a honor to share my testimonial with you! I am a two time cancer survivor and with surgery and treatments, my anxiety/stress levels went off the chart. Of course I was prescribed zanex for the anxiety/panic attacks but it did not seem to be helping me in a positive or empowering way, and the longer I took the RX the more dizzy I became. I was even worried that the cancer had spread to my brain.
Since January,2011 I have faithfully did my yoga with Wai Lana 5 times a week and I have been able to wean myself away from the anxiety medicine and I am able to relax just by hearing her voice and music. We are organic farmers in Nebraska so I know about a healthy lifestyle. Keep up the great work Wai Lana!
I am an avid follower of wail lana yoga having based my home practice on her tv shows and dvds. My love for yoga was sparked over 10 years ago by her show and having moved from place to place I was pleased to find the tv program in Toronto (albeit at 5am). No other yoga instructor is as detailed as she is whether in DVD or in a live class and 90% of what i learnt about postures and breathing etc comes from her. I just want to express my sincere thanks and my my joy at being able to access daily (varied) sessions with the best Yoga tutor in the world!!!
Warmest regards, Namaste
Dear Wai Lana,
I'm a new fan of yours. I've been a regular exerciser for years and I love stretching and Pilates. Over the years I tried to get into Yoga and I couldn't. I kept trying because I felt that I should like it. I wasted my money on so many workout DVDs from many different instructors. Even though I liked some of those instructors, I didn't like their workouts. Something was always lacking. Then I found you on Google. I watched some clips on your YouTube channel and I liked what I saw, so I bought 10 of your DVDs! I'm so happy I found you. You've helped me like Yoga. I just needed the right teacher and the right style. Thank you so much. :)

I just wanted to say hello to you as it is now 10 years since I first "met" your yoga and still practice it, It really makes miracles.
I have been using your beginner and intermediate yoga series for the last couple of years and have found them very helpful in maintaining my health and easing my arthritis. Thank you so much for that!
Hi Wai Lana.
Thank you for your beautiful yoga DVD's and the children's products, as well.
This month I will be gluten free two years. I believe it was the reason my long hair fell out 16 years ago. At the time, the 5 different doctors I saw considered everything but a food allergy. My hair has begun to fill in again, but wondered what supplements you would recommend for renourishing and healing my body, and possibly speeding up the hairgrowth that is occurring. I love your tropical fruit and nut bars, and try to have one each day.
