Matthew Sciberras in Malta said:
"I was suffering from insane neck pain due to bad posture. Ilona swiftly came along and after 1 session I was already 5 times better. Ilona knows exactly what is doing and I highly recommend her."
Cora in Florida said:
"Ilona's intense dedication and peaceful presence is almost as healing as her hands. Her yoga classes, private yoga therapy sessions, and massages have refreshed me and improved my understanding of my body -- its aches, pains, processes, and potential. An amazing experience."
Nick Wagman in Maryland said:
"Knowing Ilona has been a great blessing in my life this past year. Through her yoga classes at the Catholic Student Center, I have grown in so many ways and her words of encouragement and support have helped me greatly on my spiritual and physical journey. Ilona is so talented and excels at what she does because she truly loves and cares for each person she helps. Her yoga classes and massage have greatly helped me and I truly appreciate Ilona and wish her all the best with her journey."

Evelyn in Maryland said:
"Thank you so much for the amazing roof top yoga in the rain today! I started doing a little bit of yoga on my own with DVD videos but then once I came to UMD, I went to the classes at the ERC gym but none of it was like anything I experienced today. I feel like so much weight has been lifted off my shoulders. I feel so stress free, like I can do anything. Thank you for helping me find the strength to push through finals!"
Claire in Maryland said:
"My start to a full and holistic yoga practice has been with Ilona. Taking hatha yoga in the past, I knew the potential and power that yoga could bring to my life, yet never fully understood the inner happenings, or moments of clarity. Since moment one of entering Ilona's class, the physical realm entered alongside the mental. The bliss that I experience after every class with her would be difficult to harness with words. Thank you for giving me so many tools and openings to experience life."
Philip G in New York:
"I have had the pleasure to get to know Ilona over the past year at the University of Maryland and am blessed to call her a friend. She is extremely caring, compassionate, and thoughtful. Being a student there are many stress triggers and things can build on one with exams and assignments. She has been the source for relaxation and promotion of health and wellness. She has great knowledge on how to deal with these aspects of life and how to rid you of them. She is a great source to turn to, but is also a friend who will help you every step of the way!"
Hannah in England said:
"Ilona has an infectious energy and enthusiasm. She is also the perfect balance of wild and grounded. When she teaches I always feel that I am in good hands and she truly cares about my well being. Whilst being very knowledgeable she is also very funny and reminds me to not take life too seriously too! Hooray for Ilona, don't know what I'd do without her.
David B in Maryland said:
"I've had the pleasure of coming to know Ilona over the course of this past academic year at the University of Maryland. Truly Ilona has become not only an advisor to me on areas of health and wellness, but a genuine friend. Ilona's most striking gift is her care for the complete self - physical, emotional and intellectual - connections we don't often take the time to think about. I highly recommend Ilona's broad knowledge of health and wellness to better yourself. In process you will not only feel better but gain a faithful friend."
Lauren in Maryland said:
"With Ilona as a loving guide, I have been able to reach a deep and total peace. I always leave her sessions with love and joy in my heart, and cannot say how grateful I am for the care and devotion she puts into every moment."
Elizabeth Pearl M. in Maryland said:
"I am very lucky to have met Ilona. She is a wonderful yoga instructor and friend. I attend her classes at Joe's Movement Emporium on Fridays when my schedule permits, and I notice the benefits of the pace and relative intensity of each session. This is the place to experience an hour of peace and tranquility in a safe space to revive and heal your mind, body, and spirit. Namaste."
Andrew H. in Manchester said:
"Serendipity lead to my first meeting Ilona in 2004 and ever since she has been an important and brightly shining part of my life. She truly changed my life and helped me become “a new person”. Her abundant positivity, kindness and energy is truly inspirational. While her belief in herself and in others is boundless, as is her palpable desire to help others to become more contented, happier and successful people. Taken together, she restores one's faith in the essence of human nature and basic altruism. Ilona is a truly unique person and I would recommend her without hesitation. Good luck to you Ilona with your new venture, you rightly deserve every success you achieve!"
Cara Unterkofler in Washington DC said:
"Ilona's passion for helping other's to heal, physically and emotionally, is only surpassed by her generosity with her talents, time and energy. She is an extremely talented massage therapist and a true professional. I would recommend her, without hesitation, to my closest friends and family."
Roy in Maryland said:
"Ilona caters to the individual needs of her patient. Not only she develops customized program but at the same time she believes that every session would not be a success without spiritual guidance. It is a consolidated approach with the wellness in physical, mental and spiritual. Since the day I came in for yoga massage my right arm and leg are a lot more flexible than before. Wishing you all the best for caring people and the journey to serving humanity."
Meredith in Seattle said:
"Getting to know Ilona has been a blessing. For the past few months I've been doing yoga biweekly with her. She is a phenomenal teacher not only because of her vast knowledge about yoga and the mind, body, and spiritual connection, but because she goes out of her way to make a personal connection with each and every person who comes to her sessions. Along with getting a great workout through the yoga, Ilona has helped me feel more balanced and at peace. What started out as a yoga lesson has blossomed into a friendship I hold very dear to my heart, and I would recommend her to anyone."
Nicholette in Istanbul said:
"I met Ilona in 2005 when we were both working in Turkey. Ilona is funny, out- going, down to earth, focused, organized and a brilliant manager who listens to her team and fights for their rights. She has always inspired me with her positive outlook on life and her ability to see the best in any person or situation. Ilona is always ready to lend a helping hand or a shoulder to cry on. She has improved my outlook on life from the day I met her so many years ago. I aspire to be more like her."
John Owen in Mt. Rainier said:
"What a wonderful experience to know ilona. From a causal and chance meeting I have learned so much. Spiritually, emotionally and physically. She has been most inspiring in my journey. Her yoga class and massage are great. She is a most generous and open person. I cannot say enough about her."
Laura in Maryland said:
"I am so happy to visit this site, it is almost as calming and peaceful as yoga with Ilona. I would recommend yoga here to everyone and anyone I care for, and I can't wait to hopefully try more!"
Maura in Rhode Island said:
"I am so grateful to have the experience to do Yoga with Ilona. Not only am I starting to see physical fruits of healing for my aches, pains, and weak areas, but I am starting to feel more confident in myself. The spirituality is wonderful too, because it helps to put things into perspective and give me the extra push I need. Ilona cares deeply about the people she teaches, and always puts a smile on my face. Her yoga class is the highlight of my week!"
