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 ZekalaJan 23, 2015Verified
Yogi Brian does a great job of creating a positive environment. I love how he makes the group work together, and modifies all poses depending on your experience/level. I've grown a lot because of him!Apr 29, 2015
I am so happy to write this review about the best overall yoga experience I have had so far. Yogi Brian's home studio is warm yet professional, challenging yet relaxing, and a strong workout yet highly meditative. The way he begins and ends each class is far better than yoga I have experienced at other places. This is worth every penny & more. Yogi Brian is approachable and open to communication while keeping you focused on your practice. You will never feel rushed or not ready for class once a flow begins. I know this is something I will want to continue for as long as I am living in Fairfield County because I have never had a yoga experience that has inspired me to do research for fun. I want to keep practicing & learning about the way different philosophies connect to the dharma style after a month that I was given as a gift from a family member. As you can see I highly recommend!Apr 23, 2016Yogi Brian's's reply
