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 was having stress problems due to work and decided to try meditation to resolve the issue. I found Sean via Thumbtack and found him to be a very calming, supportive and understanding person whom I felt relaxed with immediately. After the first session I began to reduce my stress via short meditations as needed using the 30 minute meditation audio created for me at our first meeting. Further visits were also very calming and re-enforcing, I do not know how to explain it but he provides the same sort of grounded peaceful reality that I had previously received from being near the ocean or in a forest. Now whenever I begin to get off track or overwhelmed I find an available conference room and within 10 minutes I feel relaxed and rejuvenated allowing to move forward with clarity. I typically only need to do this once a day on stressful days and I am sure it would be more beneficial as I begin to practice it more regularly. In my case, this only took me a few visits and Sean did not try to push for more visits etc as is the norm but I do plan to visit him again. He helped me get off the mental treadmill typical of the high stress tech industry and it seems that my whole life has slowed down and become more manageable. I would wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone looking to regain your proper priorities and peace of mind.

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.

I took Adam's meditation class in Oakland. I found Adam to be a very skillful meditation teacher. Adam has extensive knowledge of both psychospiritual growth in general and meditation in specific, and his course teaches both meditation techniques, the theory of meditation, and how they interrelate to each other. Adam was able to help each student in the class with whatever obstacles they encountered while trying to meditate. Adam was able to accommodate students who had no previous meditation experience and also students who already had some experience but wanted to go deeper. I also like Adam's blog at intromeditation.com. I find his writings to be interesting and insightful.

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.

Theresa has been blessed with a very special gift and she uses it wisely to help those who are searching to find their "true self". Treat yourself to a session with this wonderful healer and you will have a spiritual experience you will never forget. I have known Theresa and her spirit guide Naomi for many years and the love and wisdom that has been imparted to me in my many sessions with Theresa is something I will always cherish. I have learned so much about my self, what my purpose is in this life and why I am here from Theresa. She is truly a beautiful soul who has come into this lifetime to teach what love is all about. Teacher, life coach, intuitive healer, astrologer and more. Call her for a reading, it will change your life!

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.

"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.”

I have attended two weekend retreats with Janaradhan Chodagam as the facilitator. Both times I came away with feelings of deep inner peace and a desire to live more consciously. And Jay shows you the way through meditation basics and other tools. Jay has a very gentle yet strong spirit, and he radiates a loving light. I am grateful.
