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 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!

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.

What can I say besides she is the VERY BEST! I have been practicing with MaryAnn for 4 years both in classes full of students and in one on one private sessions. She has helped me gain confidence in myself as a yogi and as an individual. She pushes me to push myself but also knows when I need to slow it down and listen to my body (especially during pregnancy). MaryAnn’s love for movement is everpresent in the way she flows and transitions through both her yoga and dance practice. The way she sequences yoga flows on demand is so creative. She helps people explore and play with movement, moving them beyond their comfort zone. I have had many “ah ha!” moments with MaryAnn all because of her “Just try it!” perspective.

My husband and I celebrated our 50th birthday with friends and hired Carolena to come and instruct yoga for us. Carolena showed up on time, was very professional and brought a beautiful energy to our group. Her instructing was easy to follow and well put together. We all came from varying levels of yoga and Carolena did a wonderful job instructing to a mixed group. We wouldn’t hesitate to work with Carolena again! K. Hayes

I've been doing weekly private yoga sessions with Shannon for 3 months. I sought out private sessions in my home because I work at home and it was too disruptive to try to go to a class in the middle of my work day. After factoring in roundtrip travel time, time to park, etc., the advantages of in-home yoga became clear. More importantly, however, I sustained an injury in a previous yoga class and wanted to ease back into yoga in a carefully supervised setting. Shannon is the real deal. She trained in an immersive yoga program in India and understands and embraces the spiritual and meditative aspects of yoga, as originally taught over the centuries. She is not a product of the ubiquitous Western yoga school that cranks out teachers on an assembly line, and her skill level and teaching style reflect the depth and quality of her training and commitment to teaching and practicing yoga. Finally, Shannon is able to skillfully adapt her sessions to accommodate my physical limitations. I'm working on flexibility, am very tight (hamstrings of concrete), but Shannon easily adapts to meet my circumstances in a safe, supportive and kind-hearted manner.

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!

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.

Leni teaches holistic principles that allow the body and mind to self-heal. She has taught me detoxification practices which help me in cleansing my body. Leni believes that most autoimmune conditions can be overcome with correct information - the right healing foods, lifestyle modifications, supplementation, addressing deficiencies cleansing the body and mind, and spiritual development. When appropriate, she also includes many Eastern practices such as meditation, pranayama, yoga poses, Advaita Vedanta philosophy and so on. Leni’s knowledge and experience with whole body detoxification and rejuvenation makes her the go-to detox resource for our community!

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!

    Melissa is an amazing yoga instructor. She is always reminding us of our limitless potential, takes us to the edge and just when you feel like you are ready to shy away her bright energy keeps you going and yet at the same time she allows you to feel very comfortable to adapt the poses to your level of ability and makes it ok to take a child's pose whenever you need it. I love the way she gives us the proper name for the poses and the mental and physical benefits too. She keeps me inspired with her fit and flexible body and every time I do her class I know that I am moving more in that direction with my own body.
