I highly recommend Nicole for energy work !! My spiritual journey over the past year has been a very focused and fulfilling one, being in the Love and the Light, as well as working through Dark with the L&L in my heart. During this time I had a calling to try Reiki for the first time and just happened upon her name through this website. I feel very fortunate to have found Nicole to do energy work with and receive her insights and knowledge on a number of expansive subjects. From our first time meeting I felt safe, comfortable and cared for with my views and versions of this life. Overall a path of exploration and healing is an open minded one, filled with many forks in the road, changes, shifts, and questions, all to open up discoveries of self and to seek source. Some of my questions, observations and thoughts felt a little cuckoo at times, and never once with Nicole did I feel judged. I will continue to contact Nicole for a long time to come.
Bharat is an expert teacher of meditation. I am a physical therapist and the owner of Creative Therapeutics in DeKalb IL. I get positive feedback from my patients who have attended the meditation class. I personally have benefitted through Bharat's teaching through increased relaxation and stress reduction as well as a better perspective on stress and life. Bharat is professional and sets up a warm and inviting environment for each class. I highly recommend him.
Masha is the perfect yoga teacher, very knowledgeable and patient.
I have taken both private and group lessons with Tara. As a beginning yoga student it was important that I get the individual instruction so that I could get the attention that I needed to participate in group activities. Tara was incredibly patient and helped me both understand the postures and modify them so I was getting the most out of them. I suspect individual instruction with Tara would benefit anyone no matter what prior experience they may have had with yoga. Group classes have their benefits but if one needs to refine their techniques, learn new ones or, like me, is a beginner I would recommend individual lessons. Tara is passionate about yoga and an excellent teacher. A ideal person to study with.
I participated in Darrell's 5-week visioning group. In those five weeks I made incredible progress in my awareness, meditation and life goals. Darrell is a skilled guide and facilitator, one of the best listeners I've ever met, and an incredible source of knowledge and compassion.
Those who have taken Kenneth King’s yoga class know the feeling of leaving not only centered and flexible but, “inches taller” as well. Influenced by his experience as a ballroom dance instructor, Ken builds his class on the belief that proper alignment is fundamental. He guides you down the path to inner peace all the while making sure you start and maintain proper posture. Ken’s classes are the right mixture of repeated poses that build strength and confidence, as well as new poses that challenge us – just as he urges students to reflect on one’s Past and Present inner self while holding a pose. I leave Ken’s class feeling like I’ve just had a massage – a little relaxed, a bit at peace and “inches taller.” Julie
I had my first chelation experience with Venus. She has such a calm presence and the treatment was remarkable. I felt like so much was lifted - lighter. And strangely enough, when we spoke afterward, she also shared experiences that were the ones I felt and experienced. We were connected in ways I could not fully explain. I’ve also had a sound meditation class and a Qi Gong class with Venus. Both interesting and excellence. Highly recommend her talent and guidance to anyone.
I started practicing Yoga at the Himalayan Meditation Center about four years ago and loved Elizabeth's enthusiasm, knowledge, and love of yoga. Her accessible style suits beginners and advanced practitioners alike. She takes her time to ensure students are doing the poses properly, and encourages them to challenge themselves in each class. Elizabeth's positive and calming energy makes me feel invigorated and relaxed after leaving class. Under her attentive guidance, I greatly improved my balance, flexibility, breathing and health.
This past November on Monday nights, I, for the first time ever, started to attend yoga classes with Steph as my instructor! Steph is truly an amazing yoga teacher! As soon as I get to class my stress level drops after the crazy day I have had and as we get started I know the next hour or so is going to be the best, most enjoyable part of my day ☺️ I haven't really taken yoga classes before, but Steph does an incredible job of showing you and helping you get into the perfect position for each and every single pose you do. I have only taken classes on Mondays this past month, but feel like I have learned so much! I also am already feeling like I am noticing some of the benefits of yoga including increased flexibility and strength, along with improved breathing, and better posture. Not to forget to mention that I think it has and will continue to be so great for me post ACL and meniscus surgery. I look forward to continuing taking classes with Steph and seeing more positive results from yoga in the future! I highly recommend her to anybody looking to start or continue the amazing practice of yoga 🙏🏼 Steph is the best and has studied and done yoga all around the world and continues to do so, which makes her the best yogi and yoga instructor ever 💙💙💙
I attended a Chakra Balancing Workshop last week. The workshop was very well planned out and ran smoothly. Valerie is very knowledgeable and answered all questions quickly and without hesitation. There were handouts and we were able to follow along and take notes. We analyzed Chakras, which was quite interesting, and made a note of each Chakra's activity. We then did a yoga practice for balancing Chakras. Valerie has a very calming way while leading the practice. The practice flowed smoothly. When the practice was over, we had a short meditation. Then we analyzed Chakra's again to see how they differed from the first time. I really enjoyed this workshop and plan on attending future workshops. I highly recommend Valerie for her workshops and yoga classes.

Brian R. King specializes in being a relationship teacher. However, from my personal experience of having the opportunity to be coached by him, his skills, abilities, and talents absolutely exceed way past the surface of just relationships. For more than 22 years now I've sought help, guidance, and advice. I have hired and or worked with many counselors, therapists, psychologists, psychotherapists, coaches, and teachers throughout various periods in my life. (I am currently 34 years young). Even though I am not that mature when it comes to the years I've lived, I have been through a lot of difficult and traumatic events that would have broken most people. So, I know a thing or two when it comes to the arena of teaching/coaching/being counseled etc. Earlier this year I had wanted to hire a life coach and actively started looking at options of who to utilize, and not because things were going bad in my life or because I needed help dealing with a traumatic event like I generally did in the past, but because I finally figured out my purpose in life and wanted to excel the process of being the best version of my self that I could be. Before deciding to choose Brian I spent a good chunk of time researching countless individuals who not only claim to help transform your life & get you to where you want to be, but who wouldn't break my piggy bank in the process. Out of all the options I had looked at and considered, I finally decided to go with Brian. What was cool is that I had already known him for quite some time & even interviewed him for my video series called, "Inspiring People Doing Amazing Things In Life." Why Brian out of everyone else? You may be asking... I chose him for many obvious reasons, but what really stood out to me in comparison to all the rest was his diversity and the "realness" of his own life experiences that he has had, gone through, and not only resiliently bounced back from, but has applied all that he's learned and turned it around into helping/guiding/teaching others as they go through their own personal Journey. Also, Brian has the traditional "credible" educational experience, but I personally think outside of the classroom and in this game of life is where the real qualifications come from. It's been a little over 8 weeks now from when I started the journey of having him teach/coach/counsel/mentor me and began his process of unique teachings and concepts. Now, I am genuinely writing this, not because anyone asked me to but because I really want to share with you all my perspective about what he does, based on my own personal experience. I find Brian to be one of the most uniquely brilliant people I have ever encountered and I feel that everyone should know this. This man has amazed the heck out of me...he goes above and beyond to help in every way he can...has such a compassionate, sincere, caring, and genuine approach to everything he assists me on...and has been able to help me in so many ways that he probably isn't even aware of. Brian has helped me to have more effective communication in all areas of my life. He has introduced new concepts to me so that I know the best way to have proper and healthy self-expression. He has heightened my already advanced sense of self-awareness in ways I never imagined or thought possible. I have learned from him how to better handle and respond to experiences in my life both favorable and unfavorable...how to prioritize my time, priorities, and schedule in a unique way that works best for me...how to shift my perspective and perceptions to see others' points of views in a way where I can be more relatable with them...and he has influenced my life in so many ways that I am in awe every day, literally! Other people in my life that personally know me have noticed the transformational shifts that have been taking place and continue to take place within myself, my attitude, and my actions since I've been working with Brian. I really feel that my decision to hire Brian has been one of the best decisions I've made in a really long time and I am forever changed for the better in many ways. I can't even imagine how much more growth that is going to take place or the person I will have become a year from now as I continue to learn from him, follow his guidance, and take action on applying his suggestions. I am so grateful and thankful for this strategic and effective human being...he is truly one of a kind! I would encourage anyone who wants to better themselves in any area of their life to work with Brian and magically discover, just like I have, what ways yourself and your life transcends. I know that if after reading all of this, which is just my personal feedback and perspective, and now knowing all that I've described above...you are most likely going to be compelled to at least give yourself (if you want) the opportunity to grow and blossom into the beautiful person that you are meant to be...Brian has helped many, many people do just that. After all, life is a process and a journey to experience where there is never a destination...until it's your time to physically leave this realm. Make the most out of it while you can! I am grateful that I do! ☺️😉🙏 ~💖~Tiffany Tee~🌟~Always #Love 💖~ "Wake-Up To To Your Human #Potential & Realize The #Infinite Conscious Being That You Are!

I’ve taken several of Hailey’s classes, including vinyasa and restorative. Hailey provides a welcoming atmosphere for all of her students so even if someone is new to yoga or has been practicing for years, everyone feels comfortable. Hailey’s classes are challenging, yet level appropriate and fun. I always leave her class feeling happy and relaxed. I highly recommend having Hailey as your yoga instructor!
Kristin is an amazing and intuitive yoga instructor. She truly teaches from the heart and her classes are great for everybody and every body. She allows you to make the practice your own, while challenging and empowering you. I look forward to her classes every week!
Conni is a healer of mind, body, and spirit. I've spent two retreats where she has opened my eyes to meditation and theta. I gained the most from our group sessions where our energy was the strongest. I'm looking forward to my next session with Conni next month.
Kim Winston is by far one of the best yoga instructors I have had in my six years of taking classes. She has a nice style of teaching and does her homework by making the classes unique. I leave Kim's classes with a feeling of being refreshed and having a calmness. Yoga is so much more than getting in shape....it touches the mind,body and soul. It gets you connected to your inner self. Kim has that ability as an instructor to accomplish just that!
Over the years I’ve taken many yoga classes and have known many teachers, but it was not until I discovered a certified teacher of Iyengar yoga, the type Amy teaches, that I finally realized how beneficial yoga could be. Iyengar yoga is designed to help people with a wide range of abilities acquire the correct balance and positioning that enable the body to function at its best. For this reason, Iyengar yoga can be undertaken by women or men, children or older adults, and even people with disabilities, because an experienced teacher can tailor the person’s practice for any special needs or level of ability. My first Iyengar teacher moved away, and for a long time I feared I would never find anyone that good again. Then one day I read an article about Amy in the paper, and the long search was over. Like my first teacher, Amy has the ability to instantly spot whatever adjustment a student might need and can supply a wide range of aids to make a pose work for that person. She has a warm, welcoming personality, endless patience, and a good sense of humor. Our class can be challenging, but it’s always rewarding.
Larry's spiritual direction came at an important time in my life when I was dealing with health issues and uncertainty about how to interpret the struggles I was having. I was grateful to have someone to sit with me in that difficult time. I often left our sessions feeling encouraged that the tensions and conflicts of thought I was experiencing evidenced an ongoing growth of relationship with God. Larry's familiarity with contemporary philosophical and theological texts was also helpful for me, as well as his understanding of a variety of Christian traditions. The pace of our discussion was measured, meditative and calming. The questions raised offered fresh insights and essential challenges, and were delivered gently. It was always clear Larry was listening closely and seeing the themes and connected threads of our discourse.
Courtney is one of the most fabulous yoga teacher I had the chance to encounter. I love her classes and her way of leading. I highly recommend her. If you have the opportunity to attend her classes or workshops you will be blessed by her professionalism, personal attention, and her focus in details. Solaya Intuitive reader and Yoga teacher.
I went to see Breanna at Undertonez and was immediately in awe. Her warmth, professionalism, and knowledge truly shines through when it comes to life coaching and meditation. She offers a safe environment to help you freely express yourself and helps you through whatever it is that is going on personally in your life. I have been searching for a great meditation spot and I’ve finally ended my search! Which I couldn’t be more happy about. I would recommend Undertonez and Breanna to anyone who is in search for life coaching and or meditation. You won’t be disappointed or let down. Breanna is the best!

I understand the challenges people have in incorporating yoga into their lives. Fifteen years ago I would've said, "Yoga is boring and too slow". I know how to speak to those who feel that way. This is especially helpful in a corporate setting when a wellness program is encouraging healthy practices for their employees. I also am able to tailor a class to any level and speak to different personality styles.
