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!

Bill is among the most inspiring fitness professionals I have met. I have attended his yoga classes and his Yamuna ball rolling classes, and I have been relieved of severe back tension and pain through his thai massage. So, how is he inspiring? His style is not that of the "rahrah," over-muscled, steroidy body builder. Bill's style exudes strength and power that comes from his solid spiritual core. So whether he's guiding me through a yoga session, a Yamuna session, or even weight training, I feel growth, strength, and in healing in my spirit as well as my body. Bill's unique life experience and perspective makes this possible.

I started working with Natalie since two weeks now. Had 8 sessions, alternate days, without a single missed appointment. She is always on time, if she comes in few mins late, she would compensate those. Very friendly and easy to work with, she customizes the work out as per the person's ability and pushes you gradually which makes it doable. She is also very flexible to work around your schedules. I highly recommend her to anyone from beginner to an expert level. Thanks Natalie.

I had been wanting to try yoga but I was a complete beginner and unsure about going into a class. A co-worker of mine recommended yoga sessions with Holly. We have been working together for 5 months now. It has changed my life! I am breathing better, sleeping better, eating better, more flexible, and I feel myself getting stronger. Thank you, Holly!!! Words cannot express.

Christine is absolutely terrific - she instructed me and my husband at our home, and instantly put as at ease with her great vibe and energy. The class itself was wonderful, very instructive (we are both beginners and my husband was a first-timer), she was very conscious of our postures and ensuring that we did not overextend ourselves or do anything damaging, and just so great overall that my husband agreed to make it a regular thing :).

I am so grateful to have found Apoorva More Yoga on Thumbtack. I was in need of private in-home yoga due to an acute case of Adrenaline Fatigue caused primarily by stress. Apoorva has taught me restorative poses and breathing exercises that have been helpful in relaxing me and reducing my stress level. I would highly recommend her for anyone desiring to develop or strengthen a yoga practice. Besides being kind, empathetic and nonjudgmental, she is very skilled in modeling and teaching yoga so that one can optimize the benefits. Under other circumstances, I would not have thought of private instruction, but now realize that I have gotten more out of my sessions with her than the various classes I have taken over the years.

My experience with Ferox Yoga was a very pleasant and informative experience. When I scheduled a private session with Claire, she was very quick to respond, and she provided me with a questionnaire that addressed all of my needs, goals, and noted any injuries I have/had. I am a male individual in my late twenties, and I lift weights about 4-5 times a week. I don't have too much experience in yoga, and I'm not all that flexible. A few years back, I had spent about five months recovering from a lower back injury from doing deadlifts improperly. Since then, I've recovered, but I've noticed a lack of strength in my lower back which I noted in Claire's questionnaire. Once we began the private lesson, she assured me I didn't require any previous experience. We focused heavily on my form and breathing through many of the starting poses, and she showed me a lot of different exercises that helped to strengthen my lower back. Claire was extremely supportive and patient throughout the entire lesson. Also, her bubbliness and kindness are one of a kind! My first experience with Ferox Yoga was amazing. By the end of the session, my entire body felt energized, and I had gained more knowledge from Claire about yoga than I'd ever had. She was a great instructor, and she did such a great job accommodating me considering my lack of experience and past injury. I would highly recommend her regardless if you are an avid yogin, recovering from an injury, or totally new to yoga.  She is great!

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!

Mariana provides a highly personalized experience that makes me feel real progress. I initially started working with her because I wanted to push myself during workouts, but was amazed at how her focus on form, breathing, and nutrition have pushed me to another level. I used to think the formula was all 'no pain, no gain' - Mari helped me focus on new habits (like static stretching and yoga) that help me recover faster and perform stronger. I have been working with her for over 1.5 years and can confidently say she helped get me to my prime athletic condition. Cannot reccomend enough!

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

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.

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 taken Jackie's classes many times at a number of different studios in SF; each time I learn something new and leave with a good sweat! For me, it's the perfect combination of meditation, stretching, core workout and yoga flow.

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.

I have been exercising at The Works since it began as a coop about 13 years ago (and before that in its previous incarnations). The morning classes are great - by which I mean challenging, never boring, fun and always changing. We have had consistently excellent aerobics, pilates, and yoga teachers and Sarah, our manager, keeps the studio running without a hitch. The atmosphere is upbeat, encouraging and friendly. It is a beautiful, airy, clean, well-lighted place to workout and dance. I can't recommend it enough - both to potential exercisers, dancers and to renters. Come and try it out!

I became a swimming trainer because it's my passion. I started swimming when I was just 10 years old, and I love yoga too.
