"Jayne, I had absolutely no expectations for how the weekend would unfold however I must say WOW! From the practice, to the food, the lectures, the amazing women that I met, and the emotions that I had no idea would spring forth, it was a great weekend. You are the best!"
Lisa, 2008 Retreat Participant
"It was amazing & sooo glad I stayed, a trip of a lifetime! Your experience was of course the highlight of my trip, I can’t tell you enough how much I received from your retreat, TRUE PEACE / JOY / HAPPINESS / RELAXATION / BLISS / Sorry it’s over / but there is always next year!"
Nicole, Palm Desert, USA/Australia Retreat 2010
"Ditto to what everyone else has said. I can't imagine doing yoga with anyone else. I love that she knows each person and what their strengths and weaknesses are. I feel very safe in her classes. Jayne is the real deal. She is compassionate and genuinely wants only the highest and best good for each of us. She is not just someone who teaches yoga, she is the essence of yoga - she is a gifted master. "
Carol, Yoga Student, Rancho Mirage, CA
"Jayne has been leading me through my yoga practice for at least 4 years now, and with each class comes new challenges, new ideas and new inspiration. She is very in tune with each of her students, and regardless of class size, is always able to provide the personal assistance we all need. Jayne is wonderful at connecting mind, body and spirit and Tuesday is my favorite day of the week! Thank you, Jayne! "
Tanya, Yoga Student/Instructor, Palm Springs, CA
"To all yoga fans!
I recently spent a weekend in the rainforest of Mission Beach in North Queeensland where I discovered Jayne's yoga classes. Imagine a room lost in the forest , gentle Indian music and a group of enthusiatic if often clumsy neophytes. Guiding them is Jayne who takes you on a spiritual journey and with firm gentleness, has you to excercise body and mind. I just loved it, felt refreshed and rejuvenated afterwards and particularly appreciated the gentle final touch of an eye mask gently resting on your forehead and emanating a subtle scent of lavender. What a wonderful journey to go on with Jayne!"
Sanctuary Retreat, Mission Beach, Australia
"During my stay in Sanctuary I was lucky to have a few great experiences and meet a few amazing people. One of these great experiences was being able to be part of Jayne's retreat and to meet Jayne. There are two words that come to my mind if I think of Jayne and her way of working; professionalism and intimacy. In my opinion she makes a holistic yoga session by combining the physical experience with the spiritual experience. Because she makes her lessons very personal I felt a sense of intimacy which opened up; physical, spiritual and interpersonal.
Jayne is the "excellence is our standard".
Sandra, The Netherlands
"Jayne has helped me in so many ways from significantly improving my mind body connection to being a yogini on and off the mat to helping me learn how to eat more healthy and be kind to myself in hard times to helping me find my own spiritual path. She's an excellent yoga instructor, but she's so much more."
Jacque, Private Yoga Student, Rancho Mirage, CA
"I’m back in Sydney since a week. My 4 1/2 weeks at the Sanctuary seems already far away but still so close. I learned so much from my trip to the rainforest. It was worthwhile every minute I spent there.
After you left I continued practicing yoga in the wonderful yoga room and reading further articles about the Eight limbs of Yoga. Having met you, practiced with you and listened to you, has opened my eyes and helped me understand so much more about Yoga. I am very grateful for that!"
"I have been a student of Jayne's for about 7 months. I feel very blessed to have found her. She is very compassionate, knowledgeable and a true yogini. All of her classes are a pleasure-whether a more challenging or restorative, they always are perfect and my own private little sanctuary for my busy life.
The only problem is we need more, can you teach 24/7? :)
Jennifer, Yoga Student, Rancho Mirage, CA
"In many years of exercise and yoga classes I have had some very good instructors, but Jayne is better than all of them. There is always something new and fresh in all of her classes, resulting in an amazing combination of being encouraged to work hard and feeling calm and peaceful. Jayne's classes have had, and are still having, a wonderful influence on my body and my mind."
Meta, Yoga Student, Rancho Mirage, CA
"Jayne is by far the best Yoga instructor I've ever had. She is so in tune with each individual's capabilities and needs, she makes it easy and comfortable for anyone, regardless of experience, to enter into Yoga practice. I have seen significant improvement in my flexibility after 2 hip replacements, and I feel more mind-body-soul connection after each class. Thank you, Jayne!"
Margot, Yoga Student, Rancho Mirage, CA
"Jayne is a compassionate guide in teaching me the importance of physical, intellectual, and emotional balance in my life. Jayne creates a non-judgmental and safe atmosphere for my early exploration of yoga practice. She challenges my body while helping me, gently, open my heart.
Her creative imagery leads me to be more present and mindful. "When the student is ready, the teacher will appear"...and I am lucky and grateful that is was Jayne."
Jane-Yoga Student, Palm Springs, CA
Over the course of about ten years, I have tried many different yoga teachers and classes. For the last three years I have been practicing yoga with Jayne Robertson, who, hands down, outshines them all. I have regularly attended her classes and had the pleasure of taking part in two yoga retreats planned, organized and led by Jayne. They both were outstanding. I was able to concentrate on moving through the poses properly, gaining more confidence in my technique, and getting more out of my practice. We explored yoga philosophy, Ayurvedic medicine, nutrition, and meditation. Jayne has an in depth knowledge of the human body, tremendous knowledge about yoga poses, a fabulous sense of humor, well organized classes, keen oversight of her students, and a constant vigilance to insure the safety and progress of her classes. She has a refined ability to correct the poses of her students without a hint of impatience, and always tempered with kindness. For anyone seeking an excellent yoga instructor, I recommend Jayne Robertson without any reservation.
