As a teacher Amira Glaser is remarkably gentle, extremely insightful, and very devoted to her students. In her class I always felt at ease. When she did hands on work, I felt myself relax into her hands, and never felt embarrassed to ask questions. I started to understand that I can’t “fix” or judge myself, I have to accept and love my habits before I can change them. Amira created a safe place where I could be myself, while at the same time encouraged me to explore a new kind of thinking and movement. Though I felt vulnerable at times, I knew I wasn’t alone as she was always by my side with a supportive smile and a trusting hand.
