Worked out with Jared was fun and effective. I lost 9lbs after 10 sections. He has great knowledge about both diet plan and exercise. I was struggling a lot at the beginning with working out and dieting at the same time, Jared helped me through it with healing practice and meditation. He is always responsive and punctuated. 👍👍👍
I was having stress problems due to work and decided to try meditation to resolve the issue. I found Sean via Thumbtack and found him to be a very calming, supportive and understanding person whom I felt relaxed with immediately. After the first session I began to reduce my stress via short meditations as needed using the 30 minute meditation audio created for me at our first meeting. Further visits were also very calming and re-enforcing, I do not know how to explain it but he provides the same sort of grounded peaceful reality that I had previously received from being near the ocean or in a forest. Now whenever I begin to get off track or overwhelmed I find an available conference room and within 10 minutes I feel relaxed and rejuvenated allowing to move forward with clarity. I typically only need to do this once a day on stressful days and I am sure it would be more beneficial as I begin to practice it more regularly. In my case, this only took me a few visits and Sean did not try to push for more visits etc as is the norm but I do plan to visit him again. He helped me get off the mental treadmill typical of the high stress tech industry and it seems that my whole life has slowed down and become more manageable. I would wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone looking to regain your proper priorities and peace of mind.

I had a level 1 Reiki Attunement session with Monica. The 90 minute session was teaching of Reiki and what to expect once I get the attunement. The actual attunement process was 5 minutes long. The job has been well done because I feel the energy flowing when I do self Reiki. I would definitely recommend her.
Oh wow! where to start? Dada is a great person who uses his eloquence, sense of humor and his musical skills as a way to teach meditation. He is very passionate about his work and I would recommend him to anybody that is interested in learning what meditation is all about. Thank you Dada!
By far the best experience with a yoga teacher I have ever had!
"Before I took Jacquie's bubbling and rainbow meditation class, I had no idea that I hold the power to help heal and protect myself on a daily basis. Being empathic, I pick up lots of energy everywhere I go and this can make for unnecessarily stressful and emotional times, but Jacquie gave me the tools to help cleanse and shield myself and stay comfortable everywhere I go. I also love working with the angels to help cleanse my energy and my surroundings - something I had no idea I could do until I took Jacquie's class! Jacquie is understanding, compassionate and wonderful to work with; I highly recommend her class and healing sessions.
Theresa has been blessed with a very special gift and she uses it wisely to help those who are searching to find their "true self". Treat yourself to a session with this wonderful healer and you will have a spiritual experience you will never forget. I have known Theresa and her spirit guide Naomi for many years and the love and wisdom that has been imparted to me in my many sessions with Theresa is something I will always cherish. I have learned so much about my self, what my purpose is in this life and why I am here from Theresa. She is truly a beautiful soul who has come into this lifetime to teach what love is all about. Teacher, life coach, intuitive healer, astrologer and more. Call her for a reading, it will change your life!
Sierra is a wonderful yoga teacher that I have been working with for over 2+ years. Her classes offer a time for students to meditate and calm their minds, as well as stretch their bodies. She's able to adapt positions to help the many different needs of her students. She is quite knowledgeable and constantly learning and sharing her knowledge with her students.
Harrison, I love your work, and it has had a deep impact on my personal growth process! Harrison has an incredible ability to be fully present, and he brings this beautiful gift to doing hands on healing work and teaching personal exploration workshops. He also has a very powerful and precise intuition that has him saying the exactly right things people need to hear at the exactly right time. Being around him during a healing or a workshop makes people feel safe and open to really work on whatever they need at the moment. His meditation teachings and workshops are a testament to the power of pure presence combined with the intuition to say the exactly right things and it’s transformative and healing effect on one’s consciousness. The results of this work is that people feel deeply understood and heard and get the advice they need in a loving and compassionate way. - Greg, New York City
Velan is warm and is easy to talk to. She had a tremendous breadth and depth of knowledge. After only a few visits, she has provided me with some very help tools to assist in stress-relief and progress my meditation practices
Stephanie is an excellent teacher. She and I hit it off right away. There was no mistake that she ended up being my teacher for Reiki Master Level 3. There is no doubt that we will be friends for a long time. If I have any questions, I know she will be there for me when I start teaching Reiki. It was an honor to be her student.
Ian has greatly helped me with my meditation and working with my mind. Ian is very intelligent, articulate, humble, patient, and he brings a warm humanity and a bit of humor to working with the mind.
I have been doing yoga for over a year and a half. At the beginning of my practice I was lucky to meet Denelle. Since my very first yoga class with Denelle I have continued to be her loyal student for several reasons. First, Denelle's class always offers creative poses that tie into an exhilarating flow. Denelle is always punctual starting and ending class on time. She is always cheerful and offers guidance verbally as well as physically. Denelle is amazing at adjusting your body to get it to that perfect yoga form. Denelle always pushing me to work harder and not be afraid to fail in the peak poses. Denelle's playlists are different and varied they mix techno, oldies, rock, rap and mediation music. Her thought out playlists allow every class be unique and exciting. I am so happy to have Denelle in my life and find her to be more than just my yoga teacher she is my friend and mentor. - Jeli
I reached out to Timur at a time in my running career when I needed some guidance in reassessing my relationship with the sport. I had been training for the Olympic Trials and had experienced a particularly disappointing season, which had left me searching for a new approach. Timur was just what I was looking for. He was able to bring his background in therapy, his own experience as an elite athlete, and his martial arts techniques into our sessions. He created a safe space for self-discovery and growth. We delved into advanced body awareness, technical aspects of running, meditation, flow-state running, race planning, and even play. I walked away from our weekly sessions with tools for life, in addition to running. At the end of our time together, I had found the shift in my relationship to running that I had been seeking, thanks to Timur. I would recommend him to any runner, no matter what your experience level. He facilitates a relationship with running that is deep, meaningful, and sustainable. A rare find!
I have to say that Maryanngeline's heated yoga class is food for my body and soul! It's helping me to open up in more than one way. My body feels great and i hope to be continuing my practice with her if she'll have me. #maryanngelineyogaforlife !!!!
JoAnn is an incredible Yoga instructor. I took her class and was blown away with how fantastic it was. It's clear that she loves teaching Yoga. She has such a warm and welcoming energy and is also extremely knowledgeable. I felt fantastic after I took her class. It's nice to be in a class where the instructor is so passionate about what she is doing and also cares so deeply for her students. I highly recommend taking JoAnn's Yoga class. It's hands down the best Yoga class that I've ever been in and I can honestly say that JoAnn is the best Yoga teacher that I've ever had.
I had a private Therapeutic Yoga session with Nichol. She has a kind and calming presence and has a strong knowledge of yoga. I felt safe and at ease through the whole session. I am also a yoga teacher and can be critical of the yoga experience. I left my session with Nichol feeling like relaxed and revitalized. I slept better that evening than I had in months. I would recommend Nichol to anyone looking for a truly wonderful yoga experience.
After a session with Amy I feel great and know things are healing on going. A cranial sacral session with her is wonderful too. She's an amazing healer, totally dedicated to her clients. She has many certifications in different, powerful healing arts. And she works with the highest energies and her heart. I hear she's a great teacher as well.
I came to Karina for my first sound healing session ever. I was not sure what to expect, and thought it would simply be relaxing. I experienced so much more than I was expecting! Karina was very tuned in, and intuitive. She talked to me for a long time about what it was I was looking to work on. During the sound healing, I relaxed into a deep meditative state and as soon as Karina tuned in my frequencies to the right pitch for my consiousness , I immediately started having very vivid, beautiful visualizations without even prompting them. They were so real that It was as if I was watching a program. It was. a spectacular experience, and I recommend anyone and everyone to see this phenomenal woman.
