I highly recommend Megan for anyone looking to improve their fitness. Megan's personal training had a major impact in my life. I took yoga lessons for her for 6 months. Through her instruction I was able to balance my mind, body and soul. I also literally improved my balance skills which helps out on my favorite activity...downhill longboarding. Megan is extremely dedicated to and knowledgeable about personal training and fitness.

Michelle has been great, very flexible with our schedules and changing choice of song after the first lesson. She has made it very easy for us as beginners to ease into learning our dance. She makes it fun, simple and gives us the elegant beautiful dance we were looking for on our wedding day.

Johanna has helped me throughout my weight loss journey. I've had the pleasure of doing one-on-one training sessions, group training sessions, zumba, and yoga with Johanna. She's been nothing but amazing in each experience. I've been working with Johanna since December, and what I absolutely love is that from the moment I met her, she has been nothing but passionate and determined to help me reach my weight loss goals. Her determination has kept me motivated to stay on track, and even push myself when I feel I can no longer continue. Like she says "I can't doesn't exist in my dictionary!" :) I'm not a morning person, but our early morning workouts are definitely something I look forward to! Since December i've lost about 50lbs, but the best change of all is that I feel healthier and happier with myself. Thank you Johanna for helping me with my transformation, and I am looking forward to even more positive changes to come, with your help! I highly recommend Johanna to anyone who wants a trainer that is knowledeable, passionate, professional, and flexible to work around your needs.

Marjorie is, hands-down, the best "teacher" I've ever had. The reality is that to call her "teacher" wouldn't be enough. I came across Marjorie six years ago, when her class was recommended to me by another instructor, and I attended her class at then-Vira Yoga in NYC. I was blown away by everything about Marjorie: her knowledge of the whole body and of practicing yoga safely is above and beyond anyone I've ever met. I am a former soccer player with a history of chronic pain, and always shied away from regular yoga. Marjorie became my weekly ritual-I begin attending her Sunday 4 PM class at World Yoga Center whenever I could, and even sometimes went during lunch to her weekday classes. The modifications that she teaches are unlike any instructor I've ever met. She gently helps you find a way to be in every pose, commands the class with great warmth while also offering to help each student and pay attention to their alignment, and is available for consultation outside of class. She also is not like some yoga teachers, who move through the poses quickly and aren't sensitive to potential injury points. Marjorie is extremely experienced and teaches with safety first. she also incorporates sage wisdom, mindfulness, and recommendations for self-care and homeopathic remedies regularly. And she's funny! Also, she's a native New Yorker, I also found her observations very pertinent and real (for example, many New Yorkers spend time at a desk sitting in a chair, and are surrounded by lots of noise and high energy levels generally - she methodically walks you through how to adjust to each of those norms). I suspect that wherever Marjorie lives and teaches, she is fully engrossed in the patterns and habits of that location. This ability of hers to be "tuned in" and genuine goes a long way in the way she teaches her class. I was delighted to also learn that Marjorie could be a confidant and crucial consult for other health problems in my life. She will always defer to doctors and experts, but Marjorie pointed me towards a rehabilitation specialist and I have been working with for two years, who has also changed my life. Not to mention that several health and mindfulness-related books on my bookshelf are there as a result of Marjorie's recommendation. And most recently, at Marjorie's urging, I completed her reset and re-new course, which helped me to reset my eating habits and tackle my inflammation, and, as she says, "live better in my body" through diet and wellness routines. I am happy to say that I have lost 20 pounds in my inflammation is greatly reduced. And, the whole time I've known her, I've known that she is always available when I may be in crisis with my health. When Marjorie left New York City, a regular of part of my routine did go away. But, Marjorie makes herself available for private sessions via Zoom, and will regularly consult over email. She is an incredible practitioner and anyone lucky enough to should reap the benefits of her wisdom. There are 1 million instructors out there, but they're truly only has one Marjorie. Plus, her dog is adorable!!!!

Matt Wood taught the first yoga class I ever took, and his welcoming personality and teaching style had me hooked instantly. He is well versed in the movement and postures of yoga, as well as the internal, more spiritual, side of yoga. I highly recommend taking lessons with Matt whether it's your first time, or you're looking to expand your practice. You won't regret it!

Deirdre is an amazing yoga instuctor!! Her classes are organized perfectly, in an organic flowing movement of poses, the difficult intersperced with more relaxing, and with constant attention to breathing. The total experience is much more than a great work out: it is so deeply and profoundly, therapuetically, relaxing. Yoga with Deirdre even melts old wounds and stress trapped in the body: really an amazing experience!!! Its FUN too because Deirdre's approach is so fun!! I recommend Deirdre very highly!!!!

Jen led a 7 am beach yoga class for my employees during a work retreat I coordinated and it was amazing! Although the class was for beginners, the poses were still challenging and my employees enjoyed it very much. It was a great day to start the day. Jen was also kind enough to teach with very short notice.

Marie is an excellent yoga instructor, she is thorough with explaining the poses and has a gentle approach, and down to earth. She has also taken the time to walk around the class and help each student adjust if they were off in any way. I have come out of her classes refreshed, relaxed, and rejuvenated. I highly recommend Marie, as she is passionate about sharing and helping others to become their best.

I have been practicing yoga under the guidance of Glenda Wood for almost a year now. I was a dedicated Bikram Yoga student for about three years when a sudden brain aneurysm changed the course of my life. When I was able to begin practicing yoga again, the universe somehow found this amazing woman for me to begin a whole new journey and understanding of yoga. From the moment one meets Glenda, it is evident that she has a beautiful energy that emanates from within her and she shares it with all who are willing to experience a peaceful, calm joy and centering of self. Glenda begins each class with a profound intention that is relevant to what's going on in the world around us, and often includes a quote or poem from timeless philosophers and yoga gurus, which she reflects upon throughout her class. I am amazed by her ability to teach yoga to a beginner, a person in the process of healing such as myself, and the advanced yogi, all in the same class! She does this so instinctually by going through various modifications of each pose, so that everyone gets the benefits from the pose at their necessary level. I personally have evolved in body, mind and soul through my practice under the guidance of Glenda Wood. I am stronger and healthier than I have ever been in my life and am grateful to Glenda because she has been an integral part of my journey to a healthier, happier me. I just hope that more people get to experience a yoga practice under her guidance. All it will take is one class to understand that she is a true healer and a very special spirit.

I have been fortunate enough to have had Fleur as a Pilates trainer on a 1 to1 basis as well as in a group session for several years. Her expertise is outstanding. She has the unique ability to teach by example and give her students an understanding they may not have had before. Her sensitive and caring way helps develop a strong and special bond. Fleur is very aware of health issues and in her group classes addresses those needs with her clients. I am a senior and have had osteoporosis for many years. With Fluer's help I have been able to strengthen the areas of weakness in my body. There are many Pilates instructors, but none that can compare to Fleur. How lucky I am to have found her!

I've been taking private yoga classes with Christine for several weeks now and she is outstanding. I've taken large yoga classes where they don't give you much instruction or feedback, but Christine makes sure that the sessions include exercising and relaxation of your mind and soul in addition to your body. That results in a much more complete and satisfying sessions. I am new to yoga but she has shown me how to appreciate and look forward to doing it, and I even do some of her routines on my own now. It is very clear that she is a very advanced practitioner, not just a drill sargeant like you'd find in bigger classes, and that she can work with students of any level, from beginner to very advanced.

I met with Kristy for a private yoga session. She listened to my questions and provided clear, thorough answers that were truly helpful. The entire session was completely aligned with my goals and I left with valuable insights that will be immediately helpful to my yoga practice. Kristy herself is friendly, personable, warm and easy to connect with. I have also attended one of her classes, and still use the information provided years later. I recommend Kristy without reservation!

This is a separate review for my yoga classes with Annie. Yes! I have the honor of experiencing both yoga and energy healing with her. I’m a regular of Annie’s yoga classes, as well as her many other followers. With her hawk eyes and strong attention to detail, she won’t miss realigning and correcting your postures. This prevents so many injuries and also improves your practice. She will never push the newer students and is familiar with the levels of her regulars. You’ll definitely be sore after class but isn’t that why we go to yoga, for a physical and mental workout? :) She also plays the best music!!!

Ginger is the best! I worked with her up until I had to move out of the area but if I could put her on some kind of perminent yoga retainer and take her with me, I would. She can instruct at any level and easily adapts to whatever you need. She is fantastic at guided meditations as well which was my favorite part of her sessions.
