Michelle has been great, very flexible with our schedules and changing choice of song after the first lesson. She has made it very easy for us as beginners to ease into learning our dance. She makes it fun, simple and gives us the elegant beautiful dance we were looking for on our wedding day.
Meaghan saved my life and I'm not just saying that she honestly did. When I meant Meaghan, I was in a dark place I had a heart attack two years prior and had a stent placed in my left descending artery. I was physically and mentally a mess. I was overweight and short of breath and scared to do anything about it. My doctor recommended I start working out and do a weight loss program earlier in the year which I had one excuse or another not to start. After being introduce to Meaghan I decided to sign up. She was amazing and so encouraging. She never asked me to do anything that she wouldn't jump right in and do with me, when I thought I couldn't make it she always had the right thing to say to push me without making me feel bad about myself. I recall the first time I ran a mile she was right there with me, I think we stop 8 times. Each time she would give me the encouragement to continue. When we were done she looked at me and said do you realize you just ran a mile I cried, it was a combination of exhaustion and joy, mostly a true sense of accomplishment. After seven months I have lost 32 pounds and I'm very excited to tell everyone I have ran 4 5ks and my time at the last one was 34:43 minutes. (a year ago I would joke, and say If you ever see me running there is a buffet in front of me or a fire behind me). We added a day of yoga to my week and it is an added bonus I have so much more flexibility and balance. I have changed so much I'm so much healthier, happier and overall a better person. Another added bonus, my doctor has taken me off the majority of the medications I was on. I owe all this to Meaghan, her workout philosophy and her overall amazing dedication to her clients.
This is a separate review for my yoga classes with Annie. Yes! I have the honor of experiencing both yoga and energy healing with her. I’m a regular of Annie’s yoga classes, as well as her many other followers. With her hawk eyes and strong attention to detail, she won’t miss realigning and correcting your postures. This prevents so many injuries and also improves your practice. She will never push the newer students and is familiar with the levels of her regulars. You’ll definitely be sore after class but isn’t that why we go to yoga, for a physical and mental workout? :) She also plays the best music!!!
I have been fortunate enough to have had Fleur as a Pilates trainer on a 1 to1 basis as well as in a group session for several years. Her expertise is outstanding. She has the unique ability to teach by example and give her students an understanding they may not have had before. Her sensitive and caring way helps develop a strong and special bond. Fleur is very aware of health issues and in her group classes addresses those needs with her clients. I am a senior and have had osteoporosis for many years. With Fluer's help I have been able to strengthen the areas of weakness in my body. There are many Pilates instructors, but none that can compare to Fleur. How lucky I am to have found her!
I met with Kristy for a private yoga session. She listened to my questions and provided clear, thorough answers that were truly helpful. The entire session was completely aligned with my goals and I left with valuable insights that will be immediately helpful to my yoga practice. Kristy herself is friendly, personable, warm and easy to connect with. I have also attended one of her classes, and still use the information provided years later. I recommend Kristy without reservation!
As a beginner to yoga I was happy to find Tricialee was very patient and informative. She made me feel very comfortable.
Hired mobile fitness group to teach a one-hour yoga class on the beach to our group of women in town for a weekend. It was really wonderful. Teacher was very thoughtful, energetic and fun. Highly recommend!
Loved working with Annie!!! I have taken countless yoga classes before, but truth be told, never felt like I was doing much. Decided to try a private session with Annie to see if I could learn more. Total game changer! Little did I know, I've been doing things all wrong. Having Annie be able to show me the exact, correct form for each of the different poses we worked on was amazing! Just one session with her, and I felt like I could feel a difference!! Highly recommend private sessions or even get a couple friends together and have a group session with her!!
I've taken many yoga classes with Joy. I love her classes, and I always leave them feeling centered and ready for the day ahead of me. I can't recommend her enough.
GREAT yoga & reiki experience
Deirdre is an amazing yoga instuctor!! Her classes are organized perfectly, in an organic flowing movement of poses, the difficult intersperced with more relaxing, and with constant attention to breathing. The total experience is much more than a great work out: it is so deeply and profoundly, therapuetically, relaxing. Yoga with Deirdre even melts old wounds and stress trapped in the body: really an amazing experience!!! Its FUN too because Deirdre's approach is so fun!! I recommend Deirdre very highly!!!!
An excellent yoga instructor!
We have arranged for Shimeng to teach yoga to our preschoolers, ages 3-4 years old! The students and parents are excited!
What can I say about Juliette’s yoga...intuitive, spiritual AND physically challenging. She guides each class with a warm smile. I’ve been practicing yoga for many years now, and I would highly recommend her as a teacher. She’s superior...You won’t be disappointed!
Excellent yoga class, very informative. Very pleased with how she instructed the group of 15+. Her sequence of yoga poses and stretches was exactly what we needed and asked for. Will definitely work with her again, highly recommend purefit yoga!
