It’s tough to put in words how thankful I am to have met Kandis and to have benefited from her instruction. As someone who had never really practiced yoga, I was completely terrified to begin these lessons. Kandis put those fears to bed within the first two minutes of meeting her. Kandis is warm, thoughtful, patient, and completely focused on the practice and her students. She helped me feel at ease as she led me though the basic poses and the importance of breathing. While I struggled to adjust to this new form of exercise, Kandi carefully and methodically worked with me to explain what we were doing, and why. It was just so refreshing to work with a fitness professional who is not only extremely knowledgeable, but is able to impart that knowledge without any judgment. Kandis’ focus on the overall wellness of her students is exactly the type of “coaching” I needed at this point in my career, and I am so grateful I found her on Thumbtack. Since working with Kandis, I have found my overall health demeanor improving, as have begun to heed her mantra of consciousness and breathing. If you are looking to improve your health and happiness, do yourself a favor and hire Kandis-I promise you’ll be glad you did.It’s tough to put in words how thankful I am to have met Kandis and to have benefited from her instruction.

Veronique helped me with 3 swimming sessions to work on treading water and freestyle. While I need a few more lessons to be truly ready for anything, I saw marked improvements in my technique so I didn't get so tired and could be calmer/enjoy my time in the water more. She gives you a ton of attention both with on land strength exercises and closely observing and correcting you in the water. I recommend getting her help if you'd like a refresher to fix some of your technique!

Melissa was one of my very first yoga teachers! I still credit her with my awesome down dog pose. Melissa was very encouraging, but also pushed us when we needed it. She was always positive and very clear in her instructions for each pose. You could tell that Melissa truly cared about her students and their well being. I miss her classes but she is a great teacher, and I hope others learn to benefit from what she can teach you! :)

Degenerative discs in my lower back plus difficulties in a hip have been troubling me for a couple years. Sierra has been working with me for almost a year to optimize exercises I was given in physical therapy by combining them with meditation & healing yoga. She has a wonderful positive approach & is very knowledgeable & pleasant.

I have tried yoga several times in my life, and it never stuck. I always thought I was not flexible enough or strong enough. But after hearing from my friend about their experience working with Holly, I decided to give it one more try, and I am so happy I did. It has truly changed my life and now I can move better and breathe better. I look forward to my yoga session every week even if I am tired and especially if I am stressed out. When I was busy with a work project Holly was very accomodating with my schedule. The one on one session works much better for me than the group classes I tried before.

Karen is one of the greatest yoga teachers I've ever had! Not only does she give lots of adjustments and have the best playlists, her classes always connect me to the root of why I come to yoga. She reiterates throughout various postures the ultimate goal is to be present and connect deeper to our body, our breath, and our heart. Karen's perspective inspires me and I would recommend her to anyone who wants to sweat a lot and deepen their yoga practice and broaden their mindset.

I hired Dasol for a last minute corporate yoga retreat after our instructor canceled. She blew me way with her knowledge of yoga, her easy to follow instructions, and general warmth. She really loves her work and genuinely wants to help people. I would highly recommend taking a class with her if you ever get a chance to schedule her

I've been working with Ericka for 2 years now. She is professional and very skilled in her field. Before every session, we'd spend a a few minutes discussing any ailments I'm currently experiencing. I have upper neck, shoulder and lower back issues and have had for many years. She would then cater the session to support my needs. I've also had Ericka in group settings through office yoga, and she is capable of bringing that same personalization to a class setting. Our typical groups were two to three people, but could be as big as 10 people. She is very skilled in reading what people's needs are, and never pushes someone past their limits. Ericka has a very calm energy that is inviting to everyone especially those who are just starting out their practice. I highly recommend Ericka for privates or group sessions!

Danielle is an amazing person and top notch instructor. Her love for life and yoga are clearly felt. She led a yoga class on Baker Beach in SF for my best friend’s bachelorette party. Even though I planned a stellar weekend, her yoga session was everyone’s favorite activity. I still can’t believe she went above and beyond by creating the coolest bachelorette playlist - truth be told, I play it at work everyday!

Apoorva is an amazing Yoga teacher. She's knowledgeable, she personalizes her program based on each person's skill/strength level, and she's always on time. And the best part -- Apoorva understands the history and culture behind what she teaches, making her class a much richer experience than a standard yoga-gym class.

Margaret is an amazing yoga teacher. She embodies everything you could want in a teacher. She is patient, knowledgeable, and super responsive to students’ needs, whether it’s suggesting alternate poses for injury or fatigue, correcting poses, helping you get a deeper stretch or answering questions about the practice. I love Margaret’s classes. She is alway on-time and it’s fun and relaxing at the same time. I would highly recommend margaret as a teacher.

    Orly is an incredible yoga teacher. The way she leads you through each progression of poses is so fluid and thoughtful. She has a wonderful ability to describe the nature of each pose in a way that I'm able to easily understand and fully embody. Her approach is truly unique and deeply relaxing. I always feel like I've been welcomed home to my body and deeply grounded after a session with Orly. 💖

    Verified review

    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.

    Brett and his team were wonderful! We used a few of the services that EWS offers massage, desk yoga and healthy cooking classes. The people in our offices would line up to sign up; it was always a full house. I would recommend EWS to any company looking to provide Professional on-site wellness service to their employees.

    We have benefited from Stephanie's healing yoga sessions in our home since December, 2017. She tailored her sessions to my husband (who has back problems and has never done yoga) and to me (no practice for years). Stephanie creates a new routine of poses each week and explains the how and why of new poses when she introduces them. We asked for "gentle" yoga but she offers more challenging variations all the time if we want to try them. She epitomizes professionalism always on time and responses to scheduling e mails. I worry about submitting this review only because she is absolutely terrific and I fear the day we will not be able to get onto her work schedule.

    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!

    Gina took a very personal approach when we started our lessons. I suffered from sciatic pain after a lower back/ spasm injury due to a bulging disk so decided to try yoga to help strengthen my lower back and lessen my pain. She was always prepared with different poses to improve my health. She has a true passion for the practice and helping her patients. Gina was in it for the journey with me and I really appreciated that.
