I needed someone to help me with pain in my neck and shoulders that I have had for years. I tried everything to rid the pain so upon talking with a friend of mine it was recommended that I go see Bonni at HeartnSoul Yoga and Wellness. Bonni is a yoga therapist that performs body work to relieve pain and align peoples body structure. I made an appointment and met with bonni whom is very professional and well qualified/trained in her field. We discussed the various pain issues I have had with my body, particularly my neck and shoulders. After Bonni worked on my neck and shoulder area I could not believe that the work she performed released something in my neck/shoulder area and I regained full range of motion in my neck and my shoulders were pain free after so many months of suffering daily with pain/stiffness. I don't know what she did or how she did it but it was the relief I was seeking for over a year. The whole experience was enjoyable and spiritual. Without hesitation, I highly recommend that anyone looking for an assessment of their body alignment and/or relieving stiffness/pain in specific body areas that they contact Bonni right away and enjoy the experience of gaining full range and use of your body.

I had the pleasure of first meeting Aari at a group yoga class sponsored by a corporation. The session was to assist people with stress filled careers. What a moment! Aari exuded her love of the principles of yoga with both humor and how she assisted us in feeling like we were capable of doing each movement according to our level of learning. Aari excited me to learn more so I approached her about individual yoga classes. She offered classes in the home and my Aari yoga classes began. Four of my friends and I have been her clients since 2003. She has always and I truly mean always been a person of integrity and one of learning and teaching. Her calm and reassuring manner has helped me through several difficult times in my life as well as my friends. She has helped me use the breathing techniques in my yoga practice to move me in to optimal "chi." I absolutely love how she listens to the body. She is the best at what she does! We now have our teens asking for her before they have tests or when they go through crisis. They love how she uses yoga to create peaceful moments. What could Aari be better at? She could make Aari classes for everyone!

Being new to yoga, I was looking for the right yoga instructor who could help me reach peaceful sustainability, teach me health maintenance, advanced meditation techniques as well as teach me the basic yoga exercises/movements. A wealth of knowledge and training along with the personal attention to my ability, past medical history and future goals is very important to me. I attended several classes at my local gym an was not at all impressed with the instructors, class size, atmosphere and lack of education on the yoga principals/history. I came across Brian on Thumbtack while looking into private instructors in my area. I was immediately impressed with his training in yoga, physical fitness and nutrition. His certifications surpassed all other trainers in the area. So I decided to give him a try. I have had several private and group sessions to date and will enthusiastically continue to practice with Brian. Upon arrival I notice that his studio was pristine and welcoming. His use of aromatherapy as well as herbal teas creates a wonderful scent and a feeling of calm. Brian provided me with a private session to get to know me as a person, my health history, my future goals and introduced me to him and the history and variations of yoga practice. This was a wonderful session and he has since tailored my on-going personal an group sessions based on the information he obtained. Brian's classes are small and personal. Brian: - speaks clearly and his instruction is well-timed with the music and movements -the music is played at a safe speed and is appropriate for the group and atmosphere -Brian exhibits strong movements and posture and demonstrates them properly to the group and offers alternatives for newcomers -all movements are safe and he offers adequate safety tips - motivation and interaction: Brian is incredibly motivated and makes eye contact with participants as well as assist with poses - has an energetic an peaceful environment - Brian's classes have all the expected components; including an adequate warm-up, cool-down and stretch. Meditation is a big part of the classes and personal sessions. I always start and end up feeling completely relaxed and at peace I highly recommend Brian to novice-advanced yoga students. He is highly skilled and very true to his beliefs. Susan Zekala

New to yoga, I had never held poses as long as we did with Christine, 2-5 minutes each. I valued this type of practice because it gave plenty of time for static stretching and clearing my mind of complicated thoughts. I appreciated that Christine made the meditation applicable to my current life as it supported me to identify certain feelings and calm my mind--a tailor made yoga session :)

    She's an excellent Reiki practitioner, and always makes sure her clients feel safe and comfortable. Every time I get Reiki from Kienan, I feel very relaxed, especially when she incorporates it into the end of her yoga class.

    About

    Jamie began his journey towards yoga with intense training in the Martial Arts under his stepfather and great aunt when he was thirteen. The rigorous physical and mental discipline pushed him towards developing body awareness, strength and flexibility. In high school, Jamie played football and became heavily involved in functional strength training and conditioning. After a lot of wear and tear from football, culminating in a torn meniscus, Jamie felt an intuitive urge to seek balance in his body. Already heavily involved in spirituality and non-physical yogic practices, Jamie came to liberation yoga for a restorative yoga class looking to relieve and relax his body after a heavy weight lifting session. He was immediately hooked on the practice of Hatha yoga. It was the perfect physical discipline to mirror, support and foster the mental, emotional and spiritual work Jamie was engaged in. For the next year, he steeped himself in practice. Looking to further his practice, knowledge and ability to share his experience of yoga with others, he went through Liberation School of Yoga with 200-hour certification program and has been an avid teacher ever since and even before. Jamie is also a Reiki Master, under the Usui Tradition. He believes that Reiki can be a direct path to recover aspects of ourselves that we have either lost or pushed below the surface. The more we learn to work with this energy, the more we become able to heal ourselves and the more we become whole. He feels that contact with Reiki energy encourages us and empowers us to take an active role in our individual healing processes. Jamie strives to integrate his knowledge of martial arts, yoga practices, spirituality and Reiki into all of his sessions. While not on his mat, he reads as many books as he can to possibly get his hands on, to further his knowledge and to feed his mind.
