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 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!
Melissa is by far the best yoga instructor I've ever had the pleasure of doing classes with. She has a unique gift to teach a class full of people on such an intimate and individualized level. She makes the atmosphere fun and peaceful, yet challenging. She gives individual attention to form and to difficulty level, adding more challenges for those who are ready for them, and modifying for those who are struggling. She creates an environment that is welcoming and not intimidating for beginners but also develops community and pushes everyone to really challenge themselves and "leave it all on the mat". When I got injured badly rock climbing and couldn't even walk, Melissa wanted so badly for me to be able to participate that she would work with me on the side while still effectively teaching the class. She showed me stretches and poses I could still do, and took my injury into consideration with each suggestion. I took Melissa's yoga classes at the rock climbing gym where I was a member. She catered her yoga classes incredibly well to our purpose. The poses, stretching, and strengthening were specific to rock climbing. Not only was the class amazing in and of itself, but it made us all better climbers as well. In all honesty, Melissa has ruined me for all other yoga instructors I've experienced. As much as I developed a love yoga in her classes and hated to miss, I have struggled finding motivation to attend other classes since she moved. When I go, I always find myself disappointed. Either I'm not challenged, or it's too difficult. The atmosphere is cold and distant, or it is too clique-ish. Melissa has many unique gifts that make her a phenomenal yoga instructor and make her classes both fun and rewarding. Because she instilled such a love in me for yoga, I'll keep trying to find someone who teaches as well as she does!
I've taken multiple yoga classes here and they are fantastic instructors. The partner yoga workshops they put on are so unlike any classes I've ever taken. You should try it out, with friends or your significant other. Also their meal prep service saves me a ton of time and the food is delicious!
I found Dana on Thumbtack a while ago and have been working with on a regular basis. She's fully present in her Yoga teaching and pays attention to every detail to ensure that I'm doing things correctly. She mixes up her sessions so there's variety and can adapt things for injuries etc. One of the best yoga instructors I've worked with and that's why I continue to work with her on a weekly basis now.
I have taken private Yoga lessons with Jessa and she has been a superb instructor! Her extensive background in yoga training has helped me expand and strengthen my yoga practice and I always learn something new when working with her. I look forward to her classes every time!
Cole is an amazing Yoga instructor. She is full of energy and at the same time very patient. She always has something new to teach and corrects/explains all the poses. I had a baby 4 months ago and started working with her to get back in shape, she was always very careful about my needs. Her sessions helped me a lot. I would definitely recommend her!
Christine is great! We are thrilled to have met her - she totally gets kids, pets and parents trying to do Yoga -we look forward to our now regular weekly sessions with her :)
I have been one of Sarah's students for three years. Among several Pilates instructors whom I have observed, she stands out as truly exceptional. She is a keen observer of the exercises that her students perform, correcting errors gently in a respectful manner. Sarah has spotted weaknesses in my body and proceeded to introduce special exercises to strengthen those weaknesses. Both my wife and daughter have counted on improvements in my posture and body tone during the time that she has worked with me. She has a huge repertoire of Pilates exercises. Even after three years, she continues to introduce new exercises! I wish that I might have encountered her many years earlier. Sarah is a gifted teacher.
Apoorva has provided private yoga sessions to my group of 50-something girlfriends and she is great. She has a wonderfully supportive and calming teaching style that puts us at ease. Her knowledge of various yoga practices can accommodate anyone's level, and she's able to provide modifications for those with injuries. Love her and highly recommend her!
I had a private yoga session with Claire and as someone new to yoga, I felt that Claire's instruction was clear and helpful. I've gone through a few yoga techniques on my own following the instruction of youtube videos, but I found Claire's session to help take me to the next level. She corrected my form and technique to help me get the most out of my yoga and I could really feel the difference in what I was doing before versus what I learned from the private session. Claire helped me loosen up my hips and introduced a few new poses that I've added to my routine and helped fine tune the ones I was already familiar with. Overall, I enjoyed my session with Ferox Yoga and would definitely try more classes in the future.
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
I have taken class with Rebecca for over 8 years. Her classes are full of spirit, laughter and soul. She is particularly wonderful at teaching alignment. I cannot imagine my yoga journey without her guidance. She is a fantastic teacher and person.
Taking private yoga classes with Sonya has been a truly wonderful experience. Sonya is an excellent teacher, very intuitive, knowledgeable, caring and even after a only few sessions with her, I already can feel a positive change in my overall well being. She is always on time and brings the equipment I don't have. I highly recommend her as a yoga instructor.
My partner and I hired Natalia for private yoga classes and would definitely recommend her. We hired her initially for a trial of two weeks but have since booked weekly classes for the last six months. Her attention to detail when explaining a pose along with her patience and kind way make for an excellent experience. Natalia has proved to be a very devoted professional. Our practice and understanding of yoga has increased immensely under her tutelage. Her sweet demeanor makes even the hardest poses more easy to achieve and tolerable. We feel lucky we found her!
Regina adapts the practice to your level, skill and energy. She pushes each person to their max when they want it or not when they don't. She actively corrects form which helps me learn and helps prevent injuries. Her skill as a yogi and as an instructor are fantastic.
I recommend Heather/Sevika for yoga practice instructor. She is very observant and knowledgable. I have taken yoga with her and co-taught many classes with her. She is very easy to work, companionate and a great communicator.
I took a few yoga classes from Cassandra Edds while visiting my son in California. She is AWESOME!!! Very engaging and made me feel like I was the only one in class.
Maria’s method of yoga is a reliable way to feel great! Whenever I take her class, I always leave feeling focused and inspired. She is approachable, knowledgeable, and has a natural gift for teaching… I always look forward to it!
Wonderful instructor. Taught a morning class for conference attendees. Everyone really enjoyed the class. Stephanie was flexible as well when the times changed last minute. Thanks!
