Kandis is a top-notch yoga instructor--and I am VERY particular about yoga instructors. She is the only personal yoga instructor I have ever had who thoughtfully explains what you are doing, why you are doing it, and how it impacts the muscles and structure of your body as you do it, too, which I love. Because of this I find myself easily integrating yoga into my day on days I don't see her just because I know what to do and how to do it. She also has a fun personality and you can easily see she actually enjoys teaching yoga which makes the process of doing yoga 10x's more enjoyable. I leave our sessions together feeling so much better energetically and physically than I typically do from yoga. If you are looking for an excellent yoga teacher who is thoughtful, thorough, highly intelligent, fun to work with, who will foster and help you grow your own love of yoga beyond your sessions together, you need Kandis in your life!

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!

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’m a complete yoga newbie and Jared was the perfect person to teach me! He was always on time, extremely personable, and really catered his sessions to what was most important to me. Jared brings a positive energy with him to each session and really packed each class with a ton of yoga positions. He is a stand up guy, great teacher, and I give him my highest recommendation!

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.

As a fellow yoga instructor and student of Amanda's classes I could not recommend her more highly. During our time together at "the source" of yoga, Rishikesh in India, Amanda's holistic teaching of yoga made me feel like a better yoga practitioner, more in tune with what was happened externally but also internally. What most impressed me and the reason for loving Amanda's yoga style is: 1. she is committed to her students 2. she practices what she preaches 3. direct but warm approach 4. she offers so so much more than just yoga postures 5. her thirst for knowledge 6. most importantly, for me at least, she is committed and dedicated but she doesn't take an all or nothing approach. She truly follows the yoga as a journey approach.

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.

For me, Ericka is one of those people that you feel fortunate when you cross paths with them in life. I met Ericka when she started teaching yoga at my company twice a week more than two years ago. She is easily relatable, down to earth and doesn't take her self too seriously - but she definitely knows her yoga. Our class is a great combo of folks who take yoga seriously and folks who are there for work yoga. I appreciate how she tries to tailor each class based on what types of ailments each of us have that day. But more than that, Ericka has been a friend and an awesome teacher for me personally, so if you have the chance to meet her and work with her - I would highly recommend it. Gabe

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. Denelle’s class is something I look forward to each week; her energy and passion for yoga are contagious! Denelle’s 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!

I practiced yoga with Christie for many years in Napa and she is truly inspirational. She has a vast knowledge of yoga, a sweet demeanor, and a unique spirit with a positive outlook, all of which make her a pleasure to be around. Not to mention her asana practice, which is technically flawless and absolutely breathtaking. She is one-of-a-kind and I would highly recommend her as a teacher in a private or group setting!

Jenny is the best yoga instructor...ever! I've had many private lessons with Jenny and she has not only up'd my yoga game but also my confidence to move through poses correctly so I can really focus on my breath and mindfulness practice. She has helped me work on several poses that I've always wanted to be able to do but thought I'd never get there (e.g., headstand). She gave me several pro yoga tips and I was doing them in a matter of literally ONE session. She also understands that yoga is not cookie cutter. She adapts poses and tailors lessons to your unique needs. For example, I was trying to do Plow pose in a class but I could never do it because my boobs chock me. So I brought this pose to her and she helped me learn how to do the pose safely with props so I didn't have to sit the pose out completely during class. After a private lesson I feel energized and re-inspired to continue yoga. Often in privates with other people or classes you can sometimes feel bored or like you didn't really gain anything. That has never been the case with Jenny's privates. I always leave wanting to explore yoga in new ways and feel excited for my next private with her. Honestly, Jenny has a very sweet energy, is talented in yoga fundamentals and advanced yoga concepts, and is a lot of fun. You will not be disappointed with a session from Jenny! You should definitely book!

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.

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.

I booked Elika for my boss who was in search of a private yoga instructor to help her with her struggles with fibromyalgia, especially after giving birth to 2 babies in 2 years. She loved Elika after the first visit and immediately hired her to come to her house 2 to 3 times a week- she was that impressed and relieved to have someone who could help her regain her mobility (without pain). Elika goes above and beyond for her clients. For example, she brings essential oils and even researches their conditions to help in their healing- she did this in my boss's case, researching fibromyalgia. She comes to you armed and prepared with the best information to help bring you to your best physical capabilities. We feel feel very lucky to have found her!

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!

When appropriate, she also includes many Eastern practices such as meditation, pranayama, yoga poses, Advaita Vedanta philosophy and so on.

    I have trained from many experts in the field. I don't believe in one system is a good fit for all. I take bits and pieces from all systems and use that knowledge to tailor each class to the individual rather than assigning certain rules or principles on anyone.

    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
