Adrianne is truly a remarkable teacher whose knowledge and experience in Yoga and meditation have given me “new life”. Her approach to instructing yoga class is both refreshing and inspirational.
It is a true “oasis” in the desert of our highly competitive, fasted paced, technologically advanced world. I still practice yoga at Violet Petals Yoga Oasis and I’m proud to say, I no longer need medication to control elevated blood pressure. It has returned to a normal level thanks to Adrianne and Violet Petals Yoga Oasis!
It is an honor to be your student! Discovering yoga is a great joy of my life. Even though I discovered it late in life, still there are many benefits. It is not just a physical practice, but really helps me as a person in many levels.
I love your dedication, love and support to your students. Somehow, you understand us (individually) even while we are in big class.
You encourage us and never make us feel inadequate.
I have been practicing Yoga since 2003, and with Adrianne since 2005. She is the BEST Yoga Teacher bar none from my experiences at other studios.
Through Adrianne's work as Yoga Teacher and Lifestyle Mentor, I have learned to be more patient, calm, and peaceful.
I highly recommend both her Small Group Yoga and Individual sessions to anyone seeking to begin or renew their Yoga practice, or desiring a remarkable yoga experience.

Adrianne’s gentle and calm teaching style quickly helped me shift my focus from the physical aspects of yoga. Her frequent reminders about yoga principles and philosophy helped me stop trying to “do it right” and begin to focus on the mental, emotional, and spiritual aspects of yoga.
I learned how to simply “be with” the poses instead of focusing on “doing” them. I am calmer and more balanced than before I started doing yoga.
I am also able to release mental and physical stress from my body much faster than I did in the past.

Adrianne is a master. Her depth of knowledge, spiritual awareness and ability to encourage and motivate me to learn new and increasingly advanced yoga poses, are true gifts. I feel blessed to know her as she has opened up new dimensions in my life.
Adrianne has also provided relief from a variety of physical ailments including chronic muscular tension in my lower back, a sprained ankle, stomach upset, and even lymph edema (swelling in the hand and arm that resulted from breast cancer treatments.
There’s no question that Adrianne’s gentle touch and knowledge of reflexology can help alleviate pain and restore inner harmony.

I am so grateful for your Small Group Yoga sessions. They have brought health back not only to my back, but most importantly to my spirit and whole body wellness. I will definitely be returning for many more sessions to come and look forward to all of them.
Additionally, I had the pleasure to listen to her Take 5 meditation after my yoga practice at home. What a fabulous way to tap back into the peace and serenity. It’s just like being with her in person. It’s the power of that soothing voice that grounds me all over again.
I will be able to use this Take 5 meditation during a work day or any day for that matter that I could see benefiting from this.
I can see myself using this meditation moments before to get my head straight, my focus narrowed, and most importantly the peace and calming I need to keep my confidence high.

I highly recommend yoga with Adrianne no matter what your level is. She is incredibly knowledgeable, patient, encouraging and inspiring.
Adrianne always takes time to explain positions, to help with your form and answer questions. You’ll feel great afterwards!
– Karen R.
I loved your classes. Other aspects of your classes that I really like include the oils, and the music. When I take other yoga classes that don’t have one or both of these elements, I feel like something is missing. And most importantly, your voice and dialog, which no one else can duplicate! Thanks so much – you really have a gift!

Adrianne, I wanted to thank you for teaching me the meditation technique of counting down from 54 with each breath. I was very anxious about having a MRI test for my lower and cervical back, a procedure that would last for 45 minutes inside the closed MRI machine. shared this with you and you provided me with the appropriate tool to manage my anxiety and it worked perfectly. I was able to count 54 breaths down for only 4 times because I was going up and down with the numbers and paying attention to my breathing so I had to start over few times.
After learning this meditation technique I practiced at home during three days before the test and when I was ready to get inside the machine I felt very confident that I had a tool to use and get the test done.
I keep using meditation for a few minutes every day and it is helping me to go through my days more focused and relaxed. Thanks Adrianne. Namaste
Adrianne Rowe has been provided Yoga sessions at the Burgdorff Real Estate Office in Metuchen for almost 6 months and it has been wonderful. The agents have enjoyed the sessions and found that they provided opportunities to meditate, relax and also to participate in asanas that were very beneficial.
Adrianne customized the program to the needs of the class and also for each of the agents, addressing their particular needs. She was able to work around our busy schedules and we all found it fun and rewarding.

I asked Adrianne to lead a short meditation as an opener for a stress relief presentation at the Teach + Learn Networking event. Adrianne was the perfect fit for such a task.
Her voice and demeanor are so soothing that you have no choice but to be guided into absolute bliss as she speaks. I would highly recommend her as a speaker or workshop leader, especially in the workplace setting. She has a special knack for making mindfulness understandable for the career community.
– Samantha Popp, La Force School
Workplace yoga has many benefits. After an hour of gentle stretching and relaxation breathing with Adrianne, I return to work happier, full of energy, better able to concentrate, and calmer! I’m refreshed for the rest of the day, and I get a better night’s sleep as well.
Some people say they can’t break away during the day but I have found that if I schedule this hour on my calendar once a week just like I do any other meeting or call, then it is easier to make the time. Even if you’ve never tried yoga before, it’s worth a try!
– Christine Burke, Ansell
The yoga program with Adrianne has helped ground me and gain more awareness of my posture. Also, loosening my stiff back and neck is a huge plus, even if it’s only once a week it makes a big difference! Definitely something helpful for us office folk!
– Jeff Baker, Mott MacDonald
The yoga program with Adrianne helps raise my awareness regarding workplace stress and gives me the tools to deal with it. I find the benefits are cumulative – the more often I practice yoga, the greater the stress relief. More empowerment in raising self-awareness translates into better work relationships. I find yoga invaluable which is why I have been a consistent attendee.
To have access to affordable yoga in my workplace is an invaluable benefit. The gym is helpful, but when it comes to stress, there is nothing as effective for the time investment as yoga.
A quick study of highly efficient corporations will reveal that some form of communal stress-management practice is made available to employees during the work day.
– Renee Moraeu, Eisner Amper
My work days are crazy busy with strict deadlines and changing priorities. I look forward for that one moment of the work week where I can push all of that aside and take care of my mental and physical being during my yoga practice with Adrianne.
I like that she works with you wherever you may be and that the focus is not about how great your pose looks but how you feel while doing a pose. I wish I had the time to practice more often but I’m grateful and look forward to that once a week that I can fit in.
– Denise Ford, Ansell
