I highly recommend Megan for anyone looking to improve their fitness. Megan's personal training had a major impact in my life. I took yoga lessons for her for 6 months. Through her instruction I was able to balance my mind, body and soul. I also literally improved my balance skills which helps out on my favorite activity...downhill longboarding. Megan is extremely dedicated to and knowledgeable about personal training and fitness.
Allison is the best! I have been taking yoga classes on and off for a few years and never really saw a difference in my flexibility or mental clarity. Once I started with Allison, that all changed. She was able to customize a routine for me and guide me in a positive, knowledgable way. I now feel more flexible (stronger too!) and enjoy the peaceful feeling at the end of our session. Would definitely recommend!
Amelia really did an amazing job at simply explaining the steps to a novice yoga student all the while challenging me to try new things and experience all yoga has to offer.
Johanna has helped me throughout my weight loss journey. I've had the pleasure of doing one-on-one training sessions, group training sessions, zumba, and yoga with Johanna. She's been nothing but amazing in each experience. I've been working with Johanna since December, and what I absolutely love is that from the moment I met her, she has been nothing but passionate and determined to help me reach my weight loss goals. Her determination has kept me motivated to stay on track, and even push myself when I feel I can no longer continue. Like she says "I can't doesn't exist in my dictionary!" :) I'm not a morning person, but our early morning workouts are definitely something I look forward to! Since December i've lost about 50lbs, but the best change of all is that I feel healthier and happier with myself. Thank you Johanna for helping me with my transformation, and I am looking forward to even more positive changes to come, with your help! I highly recommend Johanna to anyone who wants a trainer that is knowledeable, passionate, professional, and flexible to work around your needs.
Amy was just what I needed in a Yoga instructor. Calm, easy going, and relaxed. I am not big on boisterous yoga instructors and Amy brought the right level of understanding and patience to my practice.
Marjorie is, hands-down, the best "teacher" I've ever had. The reality is that to call her "teacher" wouldn't be enough. I came across Marjorie six years ago, when her class was recommended to me by another instructor, and I attended her class at then-Vira Yoga in NYC. I was blown away by everything about Marjorie: her knowledge of the whole body and of practicing yoga safely is above and beyond anyone I've ever met. I am a former soccer player with a history of chronic pain, and always shied away from regular yoga. Marjorie became my weekly ritual-I begin attending her Sunday 4 PM class at World Yoga Center whenever I could, and even sometimes went during lunch to her weekday classes. The modifications that she teaches are unlike any instructor I've ever met. She gently helps you find a way to be in every pose, commands the class with great warmth while also offering to help each student and pay attention to their alignment, and is available for consultation outside of class. She also is not like some yoga teachers, who move through the poses quickly and aren't sensitive to potential injury points. Marjorie is extremely experienced and teaches with safety first. she also incorporates sage wisdom, mindfulness, and recommendations for self-care and homeopathic remedies regularly. And she's funny! Also, she's a native New Yorker, I also found her observations very pertinent and real (for example, many New Yorkers spend time at a desk sitting in a chair, and are surrounded by lots of noise and high energy levels generally - she methodically walks you through how to adjust to each of those norms). I suspect that wherever Marjorie lives and teaches, she is fully engrossed in the patterns and habits of that location. This ability of hers to be "tuned in" and genuine goes a long way in the way she teaches her class. I was delighted to also learn that Marjorie could be a confidant and crucial consult for other health problems in my life. She will always defer to doctors and experts, but Marjorie pointed me towards a rehabilitation specialist and I have been working with for two years, who has also changed my life. Not to mention that several health and mindfulness-related books on my bookshelf are there as a result of Marjorie's recommendation. And most recently, at Marjorie's urging, I completed her reset and re-new course, which helped me to reset my eating habits and tackle my inflammation, and, as she says, "live better in my body" through diet and wellness routines. I am happy to say that I have lost 20 pounds in my inflammation is greatly reduced. And, the whole time I've known her, I've known that she is always available when I may be in crisis with my health. When Marjorie left New York City, a regular of part of my routine did go away. But, Marjorie makes herself available for private sessions via Zoom, and will regularly consult over email. She is an incredible practitioner and anyone lucky enough to should reap the benefits of her wisdom. There are 1 million instructors out there, but they're truly only has one Marjorie. Plus, her dog is adorable!!!!
I love working with Katie! I wanted a private yoga instructor because my body was really tight. I felt like I needed a little extra care before I went back to full yoga classes. She is able to tune into my body and help me with what I need!
Very responsive in planning and led the yoga class as expected!
I have been with Nikki for a few months now and I still look forward to every single session. She is an amazing motivator and has become a great friend to me as well! After 2 months I was seeing significant results! And her yoga classes are so awesome for relaxation AND strength training. I couldn't be happier with her as my trainer. Fun, motivational , knowledgeable and passionate!
Christian Woelk is not only an amazing yoga instructor, he is a talented personal trainer and program manager. I love that Christian is a soccer player and that carries through to his sports specific training. Also, he has many years of managing and developing corp fitness under his belt.
Emily is an amazing yoga instructor. I loved her classes and learned so much.
Kimmi is a gifted and intuitive healer. I appreciate that she is available for private session and group classes. She often donates her reiki love at a weekly yoga class I teach, and the students are always left feeling more at ease and peace. I receive many comments of gratitude from the students for her healing presence. I highly recommend Kimmi and Reiki Love.
I loved the yoga classes I took with Leanna! She is great at transforming any space and place into a calm atmosphere for focused practice. She also has the right balance of serious and fun which is important in a yoga teacher. Good hands-on adjustments and sequencing.
As a plus-size woman, it can be hard to find places to move my body that are free from shame or diet talk, which is why I love my private yoga sessions with Michelle. She meets me where I’m at that day and reminds me that all bodies are good bodies, no matter their shape or size.
Becca is such a natural at what she does. I’ve been to her meditations and have taken yoga classes by her. I’m always impressed and I leave feeling so relaxed, grounded and ready to take on my day. I recommend Becca to anyone in need of yoga mediation or one on one coaching. Thank you for incredible experience, Becca. I will definitely be coming back.
My client's needs and wellness are my priority. Listening and assessing how to best support each individual or group is essential for effective and sustainable results. I seek to empower my clients on their own health journey so they learn to self-assess, experiment, and research what works for them. I delight in helping people discover and practice their holistic wellness. With over 12 years of yoga and meditation practice, earning a yoga teaching certificate, and an Ayurvedic certificate(Indian science of health and longevity, which is elementally based and has been practiced for thousands of years), I know I can serve my clients with competency, compassion, and a lot of love and laughter. Yoga is to help train our minds and bodies so we are more happy and free!
I teach all levels of yoga, specializing in beginners and deep stretching. I also do personal training and barre.
Happiness Untangled offers yoga, meditation, and positive energy classes. We are teaching clients how to cultivate true inner happiness.
I offer private yoga to anyone in the Encinitas/North County area who is interested in shifting not only their physical fitness level but also their mind/body connection. I have had lots of experience with private students and lots of time in a yoga room. I don't think you have to be Gumby to practice yoga, and I am definitely not hyper flexible myself. However, I believe yoga is a powerful tool, and I am grateful to share it with others. My pricing is negotiable, but I think it's very reasonable. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask!
I offer yoga for an active lifestyle. I use flow to move and release energy. I use yin to open up the connective tissues. With a mix of the two, we are open and prepared for our next big "thing".
