from daily Sadhana classes:
"I found the short 30 minutes set my day onto a positive, balanced, focused and deeply connected path which lasted throughout the day. It has enriched and transformed January from long and dreary to light and glowing! I have signed up for February to see myself through until the Spring sunshine
With gratitude and blessings to you.
Thank you, Cedar, for offering this daily Sadhana. I found it helpful in getting back to a regular yoga practice, and grounding after several months of anxiety and stress. Your calm and diverse approach to the class made it a rejuvenating and motivating experience."

" I've enjoyed the 14 days of yoga with you and feel I have been renewed and and my practice has been inspired.
Every time I signed up for a 30 day yoga studio challenge in the past, I dropped out after the the first week and then felt I’d failed.
Your classes and the timing were perfect." ~ M. H., 2021
"...just hearing your voice again brings me completely back to your healing spaces and settles my soul."

"Thank you for the great classes and each class was so special in it own way. I found these classes great for personal development and growth.
I look forward to some more classes in the New Year!"
Dear Cedar. I have been struggling with depression and health specific anxiety since late last year and went on medication about 3 months ago. In addition to the medication, I have made room in my life for things like yoga and acupuncture that I was previously very skeptical of. Finding you and your class has been one of the best things to happen to me on my journey towards better mental health and I wanted to let you know how grateful I am. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!!
"Cedar draws from a wide range of knowledge of spirit, mind & body that transpires into a holistic & varied yoga class. Her approach is a combination of gentle, mindful, meditative work together with more vigorous, strenuous asanas. The result of Cedar's teaching leaves one with a restored, reflective, inspired feeling of balance."
"For the six months a year I live in Victoria, I take weekly yoga therapy sessions with Cedar. Over the past 3 years working with her I have noticed increased flexibility and balance. Cedar's patience, gentle correction & willingness to adapt to my changing physical state are appreciated. She supports yoga practice as part of my spiritual journey as well & enables me to question, search and find what feels right for me. She shows me the beauty of continuing."

"Cedar thank you again SO much for that wonderful Solstice (Surynamaskar with Sun Mantras) Workshop. Every minute was amazing. I loved hearing everyones voices in unison chant, it was a beautiful sound. Also at the end when we did final savasana I think I had an almost outer body experience, I was so relaxed and in such deep meditation that every time you would softly say something, I would POP right back into my body, telling myself "I'm here, I'm here" hahahahaha it was too funny. Thank you very much for that wonderful experience Cedar. I look forward to more. I plan on working on my chants, they were so fun!!
from Restorative Yoga & Thai Massage:
"Thank you, I felt so restored in this yoga class especially with Thai massage sprinkled on top!
Cedar’s voice, the quotes, and stretches for the muscles and heart mind, I felt I was transported to where time is irrelevant."

I so enjoyed this session! It was blissful. I noticed today that the
shoulder impingement which has been causing me arm pain for several
weeks now has almost vanished! Blessings Kara and Cedar.
~ Laurie, workshop participant
"Cedar brings a genuine, caring, and grounded presence to her work. In doing breathwork with Cedar, I was able to unearth and explore emotions and sensations that had long been protected and unfelt. I felt safe in Cedar's presence due to her experience, humility, and ethical approach to her work. This allowed me sink into my body through the breath and unload some of the overwhelming emotions and sensations that had been weighing so heavily on me. I would highly recommend Cedar for any body based work. "
~ Jeff Terell, RCC
Aletheia Breathwork is potent medicine! I've now experienced both private and group sessions with Cedar Sorensen and she is a super skillful medicine woman. Her depth of support and space holding foster healing and deep journeying. Highly recommended by me.

Hi Cedar - thank you so much for another amazing session yesterday - the breathwork was truly remarkable - I woke up feeling alive, soooo happy, and positive - like I was reborn! Can I please sign up for the July 6 session as well?
~ Per Sekhon
" I want to extend my profound thanks to you and Cedar. Your care and attention to everyone’s well-being is truly a gift to all those who attend. For myself, the compassion you both extended to me felt like I was not only comforted but protected as well. I feel like a ‘huge’ weight has been lifted from around my whole being—and I feel emotionally lighter and stronger. I am SO GLAD that I came and so glad that you recognized what an impact it would have on my well-being.
Look forward to next year,
