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 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.

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.

I have been doing yoga for over a year and a half. At the beginning of my practice I was lucky to meet Denelle. Since my very first yoga class with Denelle I have continued to be her loyal student for several reasons. First, Denelle's class always offers creative poses that tie into an exhilarating flow. Denelle is always punctual starting and ending class on time. She is always cheerful and offers guidance verbally as well as physically. Denelle is amazing at adjusting your body to get it to that perfect yoga form. Denelle always pushing me to work harder and not be afraid to fail in the peak poses. Denelle's playlists are different and varied they mix techno, oldies, rock, rap and mediation music. Her thought out playlists allow every class be unique and exciting. I am so happy to have Denelle in my life and find her to be more than just my yoga teacher she is my friend and mentor. - Jeli

Jenny is one of the most amazing yoga teachers I’ve ever met and had the pleasure of taking classes with. She’s motivated me and pushed me on days where we sometimes just don’t feel great, and has always managed to get me to try new things, postures, mantras, etc. Jenny is the reason I’m an inversion junkie, she’s inspired me on so many levels and is one of the big reasons I have the strength and endurance and love for yoga.

I reached out to Timur at a time in my running career when I needed some guidance in reassessing my relationship with the sport. I had been training for the Olympic Trials and had experienced a particularly disappointing season, which had left me searching for a new approach. Timur was just what I was looking for. He was able to bring his background in therapy, his own experience as an elite athlete, and his martial arts techniques into our sessions. He created a safe space for self-discovery and growth. We delved into advanced body awareness, technical aspects of running, meditation, flow-state running, race planning, and even play. I walked away from our weekly sessions with tools for life, in addition to running. At the end of our time together, I had found the shift in my relationship to running that I had been seeking, thanks to Timur. I would recommend him to any runner, no matter what your experience level. He facilitates a relationship with running that is deep, meaningful, and sustainable. A rare find!

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.

      David provided critical group facilitation, civic engagement, and direct training to cross-sector and interdisciplinary beneficiaries in a $50,000 USD public health project I launched in Peru. The U.S. President's Emergency Fund for AIDS Relief funded a portion of the project, while local Peruvian government agencies funded matching contributions. David's role was to meet with governors, mayors, teachers, youth, and other stakeholders to stimulate interest in combating HIV in a large but underserved province in northern Peru, particularly among youth populations most affected by a growing concentrated epidemic. He led or co-facilitated a series of successful training sessions with teachers, students, and health officials covering topics such as leadership, communication, and disease prevention. David's dedication, efficiency, and innovation in delivering resources and information contributed to our team reaching over 1,000 key stakeholders and beneficiaries.

      I came to Karina for my first sound healing session ever. I was not sure what to expect, and thought it would simply be relaxing. I experienced so much more than I was expecting! Karina was very tuned in, and intuitive. She talked to me for a long time about what it was I was looking to work on. During the sound healing, I relaxed into a deep meditative state and as soon as Karina tuned in my frequencies to the right pitch for my consiousness , I immediately started having very vivid, beautiful visualizations without even prompting them. They were so real that It was as if I was watching a program. It was. a spectacular experience, and I recommend anyone and everyone to see this phenomenal woman.
