Kandis is a tremendous yoga teacher! Her upbeat personality and sharp sense of humor are great for an early morning class. And most of all she is an extremely knowledgeable professional.
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.
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!
"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.
Can't say enough good things about Shundo! His meditation instruction has been instrumental in creating and maintaining my own daily mindfulness practice. This, in turn, has made me happier and more productive in busy SF life. Shundo brings wisdom born of deep experience with his subject -- something you might expect in a Zen monk and priest. But better still, he's fun and approachable! Altogether, Shundo's experience, groundedness, and genuine warmth separate him from the pack.
I am taking private yoga lessons with Amanda twice a week and OMG, what a privilege! Once I retired I promised myself that I would use my hard earned money to do something special for myself. One of my desires was to find someone who could help me get back to myself after so many years of giving to everyone else. I was skeptic the first time I met Amanda because I was so much older than she but after 10 minutes talking with her I knew I had ended my search. She put me at ease immediately as she listened patiently to all of my requirements without interruption. I have taken many yoga classes in my 65 years (both private and group) but this is the first time I have been fortunate enough to have found someone who can teach me how to tap into my total self. My experience with Amanda has been phenomenal. She is a truly devoted teacher with an in-depth knowledge of the true philosophy of yoga. Amanda shares her skills and experiences in a kind and non egotistical way. I come away from each session in touch with myself on so many different levels. Amanda is not just a yoga asana instructor she is a true yoga teacher. I am very fortunate to have become one of her students and always look forward to our time together.
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
Stephanie is an excellent teacher. She and I hit it off right away. There was no mistake that she ended up being my teacher for Reiki Master Level 3. There is no doubt that we will be friends for a long time. If I have any questions, I know she will be there for me when I start teaching Reiki. It was an honor to be her student.
By far the best experience with a yoga teacher I have ever had!
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.
I took Adam's meditation class in Oakland. I found Adam to be a very skillful meditation teacher. Adam has extensive knowledge of both psychospiritual growth in general and meditation in specific, and his course teaches both meditation techniques, the theory of meditation, and how they interrelate to each other. Adam was able to help each student in the class with whatever obstacles they encountered while trying to meditate. Adam was able to accommodate students who had no previous meditation experience and also students who already had some experience but wanted to go deeper. I also like Adam's blog at intromeditation.com. I find his writings to be interesting and insightful.
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.

Meeting Gladys has been an important part of my spiritual transformation. From guided meditation and distance healing to massage and teaching me Qigong, I feel very fortunate to have crossed paths with Gladys. It was not by accident.
I had a private Therapeutic Yoga session with Nichol. She has a kind and calming presence and has a strong knowledge of yoga. I felt safe and at ease through the whole session. I am also a yoga teacher and can be critical of the yoga experience. I left my session with Nichol feeling like relaxed and revitalized. I slept better that evening than I had in months. I would recommend Nichol to anyone looking for a truly wonderful yoga experience.
Rebecca is an excellent yoga instructor! When she arrives, she does not bring with her any preconceptions. She listens to me, and delivers a high quality yoga class customized for my strengths as well as for the ways in which I'd like to improve.
From the minute I took Shannons Power Down class I knew that I wanted to spend more time in her presence. I left the class feeling so relaxed and peaceful. Her guided meditation, deep stretch and awesome hands on adjustments were just what I needed. From there, I knew I needed to work with her more and reached out to her. She spent time reviewing my goals, lifestyle and what I wanted to get out of my yoga practice. I welcomed her into my home to work with me and my partner. She was so in tune with each of our needs and helped us in a gentle way to adjust our bodies and getting into a deeper more balanced practice. After the session she followed up with a detailed email summarizing our time and providing information/links on how to continue our practice between sessions. I would HIGHLY recommend Shannon as a knowledgeable, caring and effective practitioner.
I'm passionate about meditation and the health and stress reduction benefits it provides. I have studied many types of meditation and I am able to suggest the appropriate meditations for my clients. Cultivating awareness and presence are fundamental for a healthy, happy life.
