Justin is AWESOME. Working with justin has been a lot of fun. Not only with strength trainining, but flexibility and core training with yoga and acroyoga with my girlfriend and I. I go to justin to boost my workouts and mix things up. I'm a functional movement based sports doctor and I can tell you that I'm impressed with Justin's approach to exercise and wellness. No matter how much you think you know, you'll still learn more, reach your goals faster, and benefit from seeing an experienced and knowledgeable trainer like Justin. He's also big on nutrition, which is fundamental to being and feeling healthy. His company Kula Wellness also does meal prep which is pretty cool. 5 stars!!

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 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.

From the minute I took Shannons Power Down class I knew that I wanted to spend more time in her presence. I left the class feeling so relaxed and peaceful. Her guided meditation, deep stretch and awesome hands on adjustments were just what I needed. From there, I knew I needed to work with her more and reached out to her. She spent time reviewing my goals, lifestyle and what I wanted to get out of my yoga practice. I welcomed her into my home to work with me and my partner. She was so in tune with each of our needs and helped us in a gentle way to adjust our bodies and getting into a deeper more balanced practice. After the session she followed up with a detailed email summarizing our time and providing information/links on how to continue our practice between sessions. I would HIGHLY recommend Shannon as a knowledgeable, caring and effective practitioner.

My introductory yoga session with Ashley was a fantastic experience. She was very flexible on time and place, and suggested we meet in the park for our early morning session, which turned out to be a great choice. She's got an awesome personality, positive and energetic, and she's very knowledgeable and passionate about yoga. I'm really looking forward to our future sessions.

About

I am a Vinyasa Yoga teacher, with a foundation in dance and massage. I weave my dance background, a playful attitude, and love of movement into every Yoga class. As a teacher I aim to create space for my students to explore what brings them joy, freedom, and strength in both their practice and their lives. I offer private one-on-one and group classes. I especially love to teach outdoors - in the beautiful beaches and forests we're lucky enough to live near.

About

With a passion to pass on the holistic benefit of body movement, balancing, and abdominal exercises (which is a base for good posture, healthy mind and body), Kelly has been practicing and teaching movement and stretching class to youth and elders since 2012. Kelly was first introduced to yoga practice as a young ballet dancer in an intense structural and competitive setting where she spent over 10 years as a performing art dancer. Yoga has always been a relaxing gateway to regain strength and peacefulness in her early ages and now from long-hour office work at Samsung. In the spring of 2013, Kelly received her yoga teacher certification with the training program at Yoga @ Cindy's. Her training mainly focused on vinyasa flow, core power yoga and yin yoga. Her class places an emphasis on core-centric balancing, breath, body alignment, creativity, and of course, enjoyment and thankfulness. Kelly likes to share the healthy mind, body and spirit with the Bay Area community.

I'm now taking on consistent individual and group Vinyasa flow classes. My classes are heavily rooted in Ashtanga Vinyasa and tantra. I can give you the sweaty work out you want or a relaxing, stress reliving, hour and a half to two hours of gentle yoga for beginners! Through individual classes, students are able to get 100% attention from me, allowing refinement and proficiency to both come quickly and naturally. I'm a 200-hour newly certified yoga teacher from highly accredited senior Vinyasa teacher, Mark Stephens. I can also teach meditation and pranayama to those interested. See you in class!

I am a scientist who enjoys teaching yoga when not doing science. I have been practicing for so many years before getting certified by yoga alliance RYT 200. I teach the way I learned and keep learning, understanding that a class will have different body types and different abilities. One day to another is different, and one side of the body is different too.

About

I am a Santa Cruz based yoga teacher, and I have been certified by the Yoga Alliance since 2008. Since then, I've been dedicated to providing yoga classes that allow people to connect their mind, body and soul. I provide group and private classes to beginners, intermediates and advanced practitioners. I focus mainly on proper alignment to avoid injury and conscious breathing to create more mindfulness and joy. The practice of yoga has blessed my life since 1998 in many ways, keeping my physical body strong as well as flexible, my emotional and mental body better able to cope with stress and negativity and my spiritual body radiating more ease, joy and love.
