I am a middle aged guy, (54) and wanted to make radical changes in my life. I started by addressing my up-tight over weight body! This is where I found Veronique. Veronique is not your average Yoga, fitness swim instructor, much more. For me she is guiding me through a new way of life, addressing all of what I think are my short comings. In our first few weeks I have gained much more flexibility, strength and confidence than I have had in a very long time. Veronica is a truly gifted and professional teacher. What ever your concerns, Veronique is so nonjudgmental, you will become comfortable in a very short time no matter what level you are at. When leaving our two hour session i am already looking forward to our next. I give 5 stars!
Melissa is a great yoga instructor; nurturing for beginners and also challenging for experienced yoga practicers. And she brings fun, energy, and caring to the class. I took her class weekly for a couple years and learned a lot from her.
Justin is AWESOME. Working with justin has been a lot of fun. Not only with strength trainining, but flexibility and core training with yoga and acroyoga with my girlfriend and I. I go to justin to boost my workouts and mix things up. I'm a functional movement based sports doctor and I can tell you that I'm impressed with Justin's approach to exercise and wellness. No matter how much you think you know, you'll still learn more, reach your goals faster, and benefit from seeing an experienced and knowledgeable trainer like Justin. He's also big on nutrition, which is fundamental to being and feeling healthy. His company Kula Wellness also does meal prep which is pretty cool. 5 stars!!
I've been taking Ellen Chapelle's yoga classes for the past 2 or 3 years. She is amazing. Her knowledge not only of yoga, but the human body is so out of control. She has great suggestions and advice for every little question I have. Her energy is so radiant that it just feels great to be around her! She's hilarius too. It's great to see someone so expierienced but still not take themselves or life to seriously. Great energy. Great person. Great teacher. I recommend any of her classes to anyone.
I started working with Natalie since two weeks now. Had 8 sessions, alternate days, without a single missed appointment. She is always on time, if she comes in few mins late, she would compensate those. Very friendly and easy to work with, she customizes the work out as per the person's ability and pushes you gradually which makes it doable. She is also very flexible to work around your schedules. I highly recommend her to anyone from beginner to an expert level. Thanks Natalie.
I had a private yoga session with Claire and as someone new to yoga, I felt that Claire's instruction was clear and helpful. I've gone through a few yoga techniques on my own following the instruction of youtube videos, but I found Claire's session to help take me to the next level. She corrected my form and technique to help me get the most out of my yoga and I could really feel the difference in what I was doing before versus what I learned from the private session. Claire helped me loosen up my hips and introduced a few new poses that I've added to my routine and helped fine tune the ones I was already familiar with. Overall, I enjoyed my session with Ferox Yoga and would definitely try more classes in the future.
I really enjoyed taking yoga classes from Karen. She is attentive, embraces beginners as well as more advanced students and you can clearly see that yoga is her passion. I highly recommend her classes :)
Amanda Michael, Yoga Student As a former ballerina, I have dabbled with yoga my whole life. However, it was not until I joined Yoga Pod that I fell in love with yoga, and Denelle is a huge part of why. Denelles class is something I look forward to each week; her energy and passion for yoga are contagious! Denelles practice always challenges the mind, body, and soul, but she balances this with a sense of humor and light-heartedness. Her dance background is apparent in her beautiful flows and poses, and she does a great job of breaking down the poses so that all levels can comfortably participate. She is a wonderful teacher and I leave her class energized and ready to take on the week!
Kylie was very professional and skilled in taking me through the yoga poses. The session was very relaxing and fulfilling.
I’ve truly enjoyed training with Lauren. Through her enthusiasm and friendliness, she gently pushes me in my workouts, which I really need at times. She refularly challenged me while I was pregnant and working out with her and helped me transition back into workouts after giving birth to my daughter. My partner and I have been working out together with Lauren while on leave together, and we’ve really enjoyed how she uses partner work during our sessions. Lauren puts together creative workouts that combine strength training, yoga, stretching, and balancing. On my own, I’d likely just lift some weights; Lauren challenges me to improve all areas of my body. Overall, I really appreciate her outlook on physical fitness: she emphasizes kindness and appreciation for the body. I highly recommend her!
I typically practice yoga in SF, but when in the East Bay...I do as yogis do & enter the world of serenity & positivity at So Yoga & Healing🙏🏼 The marvelous Margaret led her classes with constant professionalism with a welcoming & casual approach. I appreciate how her classes begin with student participation honoring special requests (e.g. focus on lower body, hips, core, etc.) or considerations (e.g. those with ankle injuries, weak backside, etc.). Most especially, I enjoy each closing savasana that allows one to decompress mentally, emotionally, physically - this is made possible because of Margaret's subtle, yet effective use of aromatherapy oils, a sweet treat every time! And lastly, what makes this class astounded original is the rhythmic beats of reggae tunes accompanying nearly each asana that Margaret carefully guides her students through: cannot wait until the next time & that's for real mon! All❤️one❤️for So Yoga & Healing❤️💛💚
I reached out to Krystle to help me with structuring a personal yoga routine for my busy lifestyle. She understood fully my level of engagement and opened my eyes to the benefits of awareness to breath and meditation. Then not only did she help me with improving the yoga postures i had struggled with due to tightness in certain muscle groups, she even suggested an inexpensive, quality foam roller to invest in that I now use on a daily basis :) Krystle's yoga guidance has been absolutely indispensible and I look forward to my next session with her!
Carissa is a lovely person and I highly recommend her for Pilates and Yoga! A+++
Leigh was our private yoga instructor in Napa for a ladies weekend. She was professional, punctual, communicative and very sweet. We were VERY impressed by her ability to teach us all, as we all had different levels of experience. The session was a perfect balance of restorative, energizing, and "work out" yoga---exactly what we wanted. Leigh brought hot stones and aromatherapy and walked us through the meaning of everything. Overall, this was one of the best yoga classes I have ever had---and, I wish Leigh lived in southern California because I would take classes from her all the time.
I fell in love with Kristen's yoga classes right away - she holds a beautiful space that feels warm, welcoming, light-hearted and challenging. Kristen is the kind of person that makes you feel cared about as if you are old friends.
Wow, Alia has made me realize why I as a beginner yoga student need individual lessons. I've tried group lessons of 20 ppl or more and yes the yoga videos. She was very thorough explaining/demonstrating breathing, posture, form and etc. Then as i attempted pose/breathing she would guide me to the balanced form at my level. It finally made sense and it actually worked! Now why only 4 stars? Well, Alia has moved from San Diego to San Francisco without me, her favorite student hehehe No worries she had referrals for other coaches and I will definitely see her when I visit SF.
I've taken Jackie's classes many times at a number of different studios in SF; each time I learn something new and leave with a good sweat! For me, it's the perfect combination of meditation, stretching, core workout and yoga flow.
Jen is amazing! I hired her for a private yoga class for me and my partner. She traveled to my place and we had the most relaxing and productive session. Looking forward to work again with her!
When I first took Eunice’s class, I felt so welcomed and a great energy around the room. It felt like home to me. Loved it! The yoga poses were engaging for me. I even like some of the challenging poses I tried, such as the dancer’s pose. The balancing part is something I’m still working on, but loving it. Overall, I would definitely keep coming back to take her classs. Thank you for relaxation and yoga!
Brett is amazing. We had our first office yoga session today, and he was wonderful at walking us through each pose while maintaining a harmonious setting. He even provided music. It's very apparent he is well experienced and has a lot to teach. We can't wait to learn more in our next class.
Regina was amazing to work with! She immediately recognized things about my body that I've been struggling to identify for years. She gave me clear and specific tools that I can apply as I develop my own practice and attend other group classes. I highly recommend Regina to anyone looking for a more personalized introduction to yoga. I will be booking again with her very soon!
