Worked out with Jared was fun and effective. I lost 9lbs after 10 sections. He has great knowledge about both diet plan and exercise. I was struggling a lot at the beginning with working out and dieting at the same time, Jared helped me through it with healing practice and meditation. He is always responsive and punctuated. 👍👍👍
I was having stress problems due to work and decided to try meditation to resolve the issue. I found Sean via Thumbtack and found him to be a very calming, supportive and understanding person whom I felt relaxed with immediately. After the first session I began to reduce my stress via short meditations as needed using the 30 minute meditation audio created for me at our first meeting. Further visits were also very calming and re-enforcing, I do not know how to explain it but he provides the same sort of grounded peaceful reality that I had previously received from being near the ocean or in a forest. Now whenever I begin to get off track or overwhelmed I find an available conference room and within 10 minutes I feel relaxed and rejuvenated allowing to move forward with clarity. I typically only need to do this once a day on stressful days and I am sure it would be more beneficial as I begin to practice it more regularly. In my case, this only took me a few visits and Sean did not try to push for more visits etc as is the norm but I do plan to visit him again. He helped me get off the mental treadmill typical of the high stress tech industry and it seems that my whole life has slowed down and become more manageable. I would wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone looking to regain your proper priorities and peace of mind.
Dana is a truly talented yoga teacher. As a somatic psychotherapist in training she has a deep interest and understanding in the human body and how our body, mind and spirit are all connected. She brings this to her profession as a yoga teacher and continuously pushes me to new levels every time I'm in her class, whether that be a more advanced asana or becoming more in touch with my inner needs via movement. She's also a joy to be around, and a lot of fun :)
I had a level 1 Reiki Attunement session with Monica. The 90 minute session was teaching of Reiki and what to expect once I get the attunement. The actual attunement process was 5 minutes long. The job has been well done because I feel the energy flowing when I do self Reiki. I would definitely recommend her.
Meets all my needs. Is very attentive to my limitations and my possibilities. Comes up with creative ways to work around my limitations. Listens and acts on what I say I need and offers her professional knowledge as to what may be the most advantageous methods. Introduces all types of exercise methods, such as traditional, yoga, mat pilates and meditation.
Oh wow! where to start? Dada is a great person who uses his eloquence, sense of humor and his musical skills as a way to teach meditation. He is very passionate about his work and I would recommend him to anybody that is interested in learning what meditation is all about. Thank you Dada!
By far the best experience with a yoga teacher I have ever had!
"Before I took Jacquie's bubbling and rainbow meditation class, I had no idea that I hold the power to help heal and protect myself on a daily basis. Being empathic, I pick up lots of energy everywhere I go and this can make for unnecessarily stressful and emotional times, but Jacquie gave me the tools to help cleanse and shield myself and stay comfortable everywhere I go. I also love working with the angels to help cleanse my energy and my surroundings - something I had no idea I could do until I took Jacquie's class! Jacquie is understanding, compassionate and wonderful to work with; I highly recommend her class and healing sessions.
Amanda is hands down the best yoga teacher I have ever met. She has focused our practice to make the most of our time, helping me on my primary goals of strengthening my core, improving my posture, and adjusting my diet. Amanda is incredibly kind and compassionate while making sure to push you further in your yoga practice, securing your mind-body connection.
Sierra is a wonderful yoga teacher that I have been working with for over 2+ years. Her classes offer a time for students to meditate and calm their minds, as well as stretch their bodies. She's able to adapt positions to help the many different needs of her students. She is quite knowledgeable and constantly learning and sharing her knowledge with her students.
Velan is warm and is easy to talk to. She had a tremendous breadth and depth of knowledge. After only a few visits, she has provided me with some very help tools to assist in stress-relief and progress my meditation practices
Once again we had a great experience with Ranya. This time, she not only provided Yoga instruction for me, but two of my roommates also participated in a small class in our home. She was equally skilled in helping a group as she was one-on-one.
Ian has greatly helped me with my meditation and working with my mind. Ian is very intelligent, articulate, humble, patient, and he brings a warm humanity and a bit of humor to working with the mind.
excellent teacher, very helpful, focuses on solving problem, really thrives to help her students, goes above and beyond to mitigate the solutions for her students, crafts personalized routine for the workout, wished had met her long back...
I have been doing yoga for over a year and a half. At the beginning of my practice I was lucky to meet Denelle. Since my very first yoga class with Denelle I have continued to be her loyal student for several reasons. First, Denelle's class always offers creative poses that tie into an exhilarating flow. Denelle is always punctual starting and ending class on time. She is always cheerful and offers guidance verbally as well as physically. Denelle is amazing at adjusting your body to get it to that perfect yoga form. Denelle always pushing me to work harder and not be afraid to fail in the peak poses. Denelle's playlists are different and varied they mix techno, oldies, rock, rap and mediation music. Her thought out playlists allow every class be unique and exciting. I am so happy to have Denelle in my life and find her to be more than just my yoga teacher she is my friend and mentor. - Jeli
Sandy's dedication to helping and healing is unparalleled! Her combined theoretical and practical knowledge makes her the perfect yoga and meditation teacher and lifestyle counselor. Her sessions, both private and group, offer a personalized approach that will leave you feeling supported and challenged. It's amazing how unique each session feels, knowing that it was tailor-made! I highly recommend Sandy for private and group yoga & meditation instruction. There's no one else like her in the Bay Area!
Tailor is an excellent teacher. Like great guide/shaman she is very present with her students. I really appreciate her holistic approach and how she tries to include both meditative and physical components of the yoga in her teaching.
Jenny is one of the most amazing yoga teachers I’ve ever met and had the pleasure of taking classes with. She’s motivated me and pushed me on days where we sometimes just don’t feel great, and has always managed to get me to try new things, postures, mantras, etc. Jenny is the reason I’m an inversion junkie, she’s inspired me on so many levels and is one of the big reasons I have the strength and endurance and love for yoga.
I have to say that Maryanngeline's heated yoga class is food for my body and soul! It's helping me to open up in more than one way. My body feels great and i hope to be continuing my practice with her if she'll have me. #maryanngelineyogaforlife !!!!
I contacted Marianne to see if she could help me with guidance and answers to my medical questions as well as help me understand how to deal with life’s overall stress due to work, relationships, finances and a whole lot more. Marianne to the rescue—fast! She far exceeded my expectations. Marianne helped me find equilibrium and peace between my heart, body and spirit, a powerful gift, much easier said than done. She uses multiple modalities and disciplines that I’ve not experienced nor known. (Believe me, I’ve been to all types of practitioners.) In a very quiet but powerful way, Marianne has the ability to untangle and balance what my Mind thinks and what my Spirit truly wants to experience. That’s pretty hard to do with me! This combination: Ayurvedic Acupressure (Marma Balance), Message therapy, (Marianne is a certified massage therapist), Ayurvedic Herbs & Aromatherapy remedies handmade by Marianne (yes, certified Purveyor of Apothycaria), Bell Ringing Vibration (yes a certified Balinese Bell Resonance and Tuning Forks Practitioner) has catapulted all my power(s) within. You name it- Marianne has either studied under the religious deities or leaders for each of these therapies (plus more) worldwide. Marianne will get you on your path! Please contact Marianne today. You will be amazed with her powers. Linda, Los Altos, everyday person looking for solutions toward a new path.
Thank you for your easygoing, friendly spirit. I enjoyed your yoga classes so much! Your ability to shift with the energy of the group and go with the flow is very valuable. Seriously an asset to the whole experience so THANK YOU for teaching at Days Off With Us Retreats!
