Michael is an awesome trainer! He listened to my goals and guided me to reaching them. He customizes workouts every week to keep you challenged but not at risk of injury. He has a ton of knowledge, from nutrition to yoga, that influence my lifestyle changes so that it's easy to maintain my results. I've trained with him for nearly a year and a half and I plan on hanging onto him for a long time.

I needed a personal trainer to come to my home and help me get back on a work-out routine. Going to school on the evenings and being a stay at home mom made it difficult to dedicate time to work-out. Pamela came to my home 2x a week for 8 weeks and motivated me to push myself for 30-min sessions. That commitment jump-started my new exercise routine which I have incorporated into my busy lifestyle. She has a firm, yet sweet approach to motivate you which is a great combination to have especially when you want to give up on the last rep! She also provides weight-training equipment such as yoga mat, weights and medicine ball. At the end of the 8 weeks, I reduced my BMI!

I am a relative novice to yoga. I took Susan Rae's Yin class at the Hyatt Hotel in East Boston these past couple of Saturday's and have nothing but praise for her and her teaching style. She creates a calm mood and her poses are very fluid and easy to understand, especially for a relative novice such as myself. Highly recommended!

I used Thumbtack in order to find someone to conduct a private yoga session in Santa Barbara for a small bachelorette party and was promptly connected with Leah. She was responsive and kind and quickly responded to any and all questions I had up front. She showed up on time and allowed us to wait for a few women who were running late. She then walked us to the most beautiful, mostly private, ocean-view location and conducted a great yoga session. As with any bachelorette, a few of us were not feeling well after a night out so Leah catered to how we were feeling by taking us through some restorative and detoxifying yoga moves. She also made sure the bachelorette was comfortable, with our intention focused on her and her upcoming nuptials, throughout the session. Overall, it was the highlight of the entire weekend for all of us. We are still talking about just how great it was. We hope we can attend one of her other public classes or set another private session up sometime down the road. Thank you, Leah!

Megan is an amazing yoga teacher. She showed me yoga can be for everyone of all skill levels. Her overall approach is non-aggressive yet very educational about the human body. Personally, it's also an eye opening experience to practice yoga outside of a regular studio. Overall it's huge stress reliever and complete physical and metal makeover every time I practice yoga with Megan.

We hired Brianna for a private yoga session for a bachelorette weekend. Brianna was great! She was flexible with scheduling and put a great flow together for the group! She allowed modifications for all levels and brought the perfect energy for our group: It was the perfect balance of playfuI, meditative, and hard work! I highly recommend her! I will definitely try to hire her for future events/classes/etc.

Shambhavi is a very dedicated Reiki, Kriya yoga and Ayurveda practitioner. On a number of occasions I hired her to teach a class for my group which was quite a success. Her knowledge of both subjects and personal involvement is superb. She has a talent for leading groups and deliver her talks in a very subtle manner. One could feel her subtle connection. She also gave me a live session of Reiki followed by 21 day distant sessions. Shambhavi gets my highest recommendations whether it is for Kriya yoga group or personal sessions, Ayurvedic knowledge, or Reiki personal sessions or classes. She is highly skilled, very intuitive, and has true healing abilities.

Adrienne is an amazing yoga teacher. She is clearly in a class of her own. Honestly, practicing with her is a sublime experience. Definitely, the more of it the merrier! Her extensive training and experience are evident from the first time that you meet her. Adrienne is a true professional. She comes prepared and highly organized for every occasion. Her sincerity and love for her craft shines in every well thought out and personalized session. The customized material is both approachable and challenging, making for an enjoyable and fulfilling experience. There is a certain relatability and realness to Adrienne’s practice. It allows for a quick transcendence of the practice into everyday life. I can’t say enough great things about it!

About

I am trained in ashtanga vinyasa yoga as well as therapeutic yoga, and provide private and group yoga instruction for all occasions. The ashtanga gives me the experience to offer yoga for building strength as well has losing weight if that is what is desired. The therapeutic yoga I am trained in has given me skills to develop a yoga practice designed for the individual's needs whether that is for treatment of a chronic illness, pain management, stress management, or simply a practice which is specially tailored to one's own body and abilities. If you want to practice yoga but are intimidated by classes, or simply do not know where to start, private therapeutic-oriented instruction is a great place to start.
