Meaghan saved my life and I'm not just saying that she honestly did. When I meant Meaghan, I was in a dark place I had a heart attack two years prior and had a stent placed in my left descending artery. I was physically and mentally a mess. I was overweight and short of breath and scared to do anything about it. My doctor recommended I start working out and do a weight loss program earlier in the year which I had one excuse or another not to start. After being introduce to Meaghan I decided to sign up. She was amazing and so encouraging. She never asked me to do anything that she wouldn't jump right in and do with me, when I thought I couldn't make it she always had the right thing to say to push me without making me feel bad about myself. I recall the first time I ran a mile she was right there with me, I think we stop 8 times. Each time she would give me the encouragement to continue. When we were done she looked at me and said “do you realize you just ran a mile “I cried, it was a combination of exhaustion and joy, mostly a true sense of accomplishment. After seven months I have lost 32 pounds and I'm very excited to tell everyone I have ran 4 5k’s and my time at the last one was 34:43 minutes. (a year ago I would joke, and say “ If you ever see me running there is a buffet in front of me or a fire behind me”). We added a day of yoga to my week and it is an added bonus I have so much more flexibility and balance. I have changed so much I'm so much healthier, happier and overall a better person. Another added bonus, my doctor has taken me off the majority of the medications I was on. I owe all this to Meaghan, her workout philosophy and her overall amazing dedication to her clients.

Amy is one of the few yoga teachers I would go to, let alone recommend to people. Her practice is a wonderful blend of mindfulness and physical activity. She's always open to requests and tailoring the class to meet those participating. I can't recommend her highly enough. You can't go wrong.

What can I say about Juliette’s yoga...intuitive, spiritual AND physically challenging. She guides each class with a warm smile. I’ve been practicing yoga for many years now, and I would highly recommend her as a teacher. She’s superior...You won’t be disappointed!

I have taken a number of classes with Kelly, and walked away from each session with clarity, calmness, lightness, and overall improved state of well-being. Kelly is thoughtful and purposeful in her flows and sequences, and has one of the most calming presences I have ever experienced. Her love for the practice of yoga is evident, and she is passionate about assisting people in their own journeys as well. Her classes have a positive and happy atmosphere, and I always look forward to furthering my practice under her guidance. Kelly is a bright light in the world, and I am deeply grateful for the opportunity to have been able to practice with her.

She helped with our corporate event. We need some follow along choreography to promote healthy living & as a good team building experience & she was very open & accommodating to our style & playlist selection. She's such a great spirit & so talented at motivating a crowd, especially since we were all beginners.

Omg, this girl just taught me some acrobatic moves and advanced yoga moves. omg, omg, omg. I have always wanted to be more acrobatic and I started working out with her about 2 months ago. I usually go to the gym where she trains at and its so nice inside and when she is showing her workout, other people usually star at us because her stuff is so bad ass and so so cool. As a guy, its good to be able to impress his girl, I am working on my handstand secretly with this badass trainer. My girl friend even notices and says, "are you working out? you look so much shredded". I am not my old ME anymore!!

I started practicing with Stephanie several years ago, and I was a beginner in yoga. Since then I have practiced yoga with many different teacher from all over the world, but I have not met anyone who teaches like her. Her style of teaching is truly nourishing for the body, mind and soul. If you have never practiced with her I would highly recommend it.

Victoria helped me with the issues I came in for and also addressed some things I didn't know I needed. She has great insights and is very gifted as a healer. I saw results within the first few days of our session. I went to her for 3 consecutive sessions and now only go in if I feel out of balance or if I have something important going on in my life. I also appreciate that the way she goes about the healing is as a witness. That resonated for me. The yoga studio she works out of is clean and comfortable. There was plenty of street parking. But if you don't want to come out, she does remote sessions also. I prefer remote sessions because I don't have to factor travel time in. I highly recommend her.

Madi is an EXCELLENT yoga instructor! She’s has planned my workouts with my weakness & strengths in mind, as I️ grow with time & experience. She is flexible with our appointment times in case of conflicts with scheduling.. She has that “Yoga” knowledge of all the poses and also interjects different styles in our workouts. From Vinyasa Flow to some Kindelini! I LOVE her zen & spiritual positivity that she brings to her teaching. She truly lives in that mindset! Very refreshing and relaxing. I already have gained flexibility & strength and muscle tone ,as I continue my private workouts. The largest importance of having private Yoga instruction, is having someone make sure of how you do your poses & that your positioning is correct so injuries can be AVOIDED. It is easy to take a group class and possibly injure yourself because you aren’t doing the correct pose. It’s so hard for an instructor to see how each member of a class is actually performing. Also in privates, you can move in levels of experience at your own pace, and have CUSTOM WORKOUTS based on ones needs. Possibly wanting an ENERGETIC workout to a STRENGTH or RESTORATIVE if needed for sore or achy muscles. I’m ADDICTED to this private class! Hard to give up when each workout can be customized as I️ grow!! TRY THIS INSTRUCTOR! So awesome !!

We had a group of 10 girls for a bachelorette party in Malibu! I am so happy we selected Stacey to instruct yoga on the beach!! She was incredibly quick to reply, professional and prompt! We were mostly beginners and wanted to have a casual yoga session! She was very detailed in the movements/practice but at the same time tailored the class to her audience and kept it very lighthearted. Loved her jokes ;) At the end, she provided the bachelorette with a card congratulating her on the upcoming wedding! What a thoughtful touch! Too bad she didn't live in Texas otherwise I'd def be using her more! Thank you again Stacey for such a wonderful morning!

I met Florence when I researched the web for private yoga lessons. Large group settings were not working for me, so I wanted something more personal. It was the 2nd best decision I've made in 2015. Florence is extremely professional, dedicated, expert in her area and strives to help make a positive impact in your life. She customizes every yoga and life coaching lesson to address my specific health needs and in the few months I've been working with her, I've achieved so much. I've lost weight (she provides wonderful recipes) and my balance has improved both physically and mentally. Every week I get excited to see her as I know, I'll learn something new that will have a long-lasting impact in my life. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND Florence to anyone who is serious about making a positive change in their life through yoga/meditation and life coaching. SHE IS WORK EVERY PENNY.

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 didn't love yoga, it scared me. I workout at Equinox, I train with personal trainers. I love to eat, mostly sugar. I didn't sleep well and had no energy. My muscles were tight, I was inflexible and angry. I spent weekends sleeping and recovering. Then I met Vlad and he changed my life. No, he helped me change my life. He is the best personal yoga instructor ever.  If you even consider a private practice, schedule with him now. He is affordable and reliable. I now wake when the sun rises. I have an abundant amount of energy. I have lost weight, gained flexibility and strength and am eating a healthier diet. I am surprised daily by my mental acuity. I no longer lose my phone or keys. I am calmer. I need less sleep. I really can't say this more emphatically, yoga and Vlad have improved my life exponentially. Perhaps not in that order.

Approximately one year ago I walked into Bikram Yoga Agoura Hills having no idea what yoga was all about except that a friend told me it can really help me mentally and physically. I met Rachel that day and my life has changed dramatically. Rachel took the time to explain to me what Bikram Yoga was all about and prepared me for my first class. At that time of my first classes, I was experiencing a tremendous amount of depression, anxiety, and physical problems. Rachel and her studio provided me a place to heal. She took me under her wing and coached me through some very difficult times. What impresses me the most about Rachel is her commitment to all her students, her teachers, and her studio. I have seen Rachel have long talks with students whom are struggling and I can see how much faith and respect students have for her as an owner and individual. Rachel does an excellent job of being “One of us” not an owner and teacher, who is above anyone. Rachel’s commitment to her own practice is something that helps drive her students to work hard and often. I have also seen Rachel stay very involved with her teachers to make sure the studio keeps a consistent practice. I have been to other Yoga studios and must say this studio is the cleanest and I know it is because of her commitment to cleaning the studio multiple times a day. Rachel’s friendly attitude and personal strength has created a studio like no other. Students are always interacting with each other before and after class and that is because Rachel and her teachers are one of a kind and they never present themselves above the students. On a personal level, Rachel talked to me about my daughter’s anxiety and her wishes to practice yoga, however my daughter was too nervous to attend a class. Rachel offered to come to my home and teach my daughter until she was able to come to the studio. Anyone who is looking for a comfortable and safe place to practice all types of yoga, belong to a community of high energy caring students of all types, would benefit from taking a class with Rachel and would immediately see what I am talking about. See you soon in the Hot Room.

Julia embodies "nourishment' on multiple dimensions. I have been fortunate enough to be on the receiving end of her expert bodywork, have eaten, been nourished by food that she prepared for myself and my students and witnessed her lead my students in yoga classes on multiple occasions. And she does it all with ease and grace and competence and extreme care. Enthusiastically submitted by Scott Coady, Founder of the Institute for Embodied Wisdom in Ojai California.
