As I am a beginner, Tricia has been very patient. She takes time to explain what each exercise does, corrects me when I do it wrong and is a great cheerleader when I finish each session. I would recommend working with her.
Yoga with Masha is both energizing & calming. She provides a non judgmental yoga space. Her cues allow me to achieve better alignment & get the most out of every pose. Masha's thoughtful inspirational words add to my overall yoga experience.
Jessica is a wonderful personal trainer. I appreciate that she comes to my home and is flexible with my busy work schedule. She incorporates weight training, yoga, Pilates, and high and low intensity cardio. She pushes me appropriately and always seems to know just what I need!
Tara started me with yoga almost ten years ago. She is extremely patient, calm - encouraging each student individually to achieve their best, watching for perfect form and yet challenging. She raised my confidence and has encouraged me to continue to practice. I have had numerous yoga classes - hers are always the best! Highly recommend!
Ive been taking yoga classes for a few years now and the two classes I took with Samanthia were very significant. She showed me quite a few things that have improved my practice greatly. I would highly recommend her as a yoga instructor. Her demeanor and passion to help deepen your practice is evident.
My experience with Lymphatic Drainage and Healing Touch performed by Dr. Sylvia Hood Washington I believe had a positive effect on reducing inflammation in my body. The few days after therapy I noticed less aches and pain in my muscles & joints. I hold a lot of stress related tension in my muscles, so it was great to have some relief. During the therapy Dr. Sylvia kept me informed with what she was doing and why she was doing it. I liked how she integrated different modalities along with the lymphatic draining. She incorporated some yoga stretching and breathing as well as healing touch techniques. On top of relieving some of my inflammatory muscle and joint pain, Dr.Sylvia found an inflamed lymph node under my arm. It was likely inflamed because I was feeling on the verge of a virus. She was able to drain the lymph node and we could no longer feel an inflamed lump under my arm. I believe this procedure helped me to beat the virus that never transpired. In addition to being a Certified Lymphatic Therapist, Dr. Sylvia has vast knowledge and expertise in the medical field as an Environmental Epidemiologist and Public Health Professional. She has the ability to treat a person holistically while helping them discover how their environment may be affecting their health issues. I would highly recommend Dr. Sylvia Hood Washington as a Nautropathic Doctor for Lymphatic Wellness.
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'm just a beginner doing yoga but I'm learning fast from Mila Rascon. She's done a great job teaching me and I look forward to more sessions.
Corrin was amazing at explaining the different poses and made sure to keep us on track with the way that we were breathing to make things easier. Very easy to understand definitely not rushed (being a beginner) and you can tell she’s very knowledgeable and passionate about what she’s doing. Excellent!
I'm so grateful to have found Kari. I've been working with a hip injury and following some major abdominal surgeries was also having trouble finding strength in my core, back, and pelvis. After working with two physical therapists without much change, I began seeing Kari for private yoga instruction every week. I was hard on myself at first, but Kari met me where I was and she leaves me feeling empowered after every session. Her attention to detail is tremendous. She offers beautifully supported hands on adjustments that help me expand farther in my yoga than I thought possible (as a yoga instructor myself it's been enlightening). She gives safe and aligned modifications on the fly when I have trouble moving into a pose or start to feel tension. Her Reiki energy work lets me thoroughly relax into the moment when I'm a ball of stress. Her tool belt seems endless! She is creative, compassionate, and present as a human and instructor. You can't help but feel good around her; she vibrates higher. She speaks to spirit and also has a deep knowledge and love for anatomy to assist all levels and body types. Thank you, Kari, for sharing your unique gifts. I feel stronger, braver, and more comfortable in my own body, mind, and spirit because of you.
I have studied Iyengar yoga with Amy Massat for well over a year, with great, steady progress. I am 76 years old and in good overall condition, but with rotator cuff issues in one shoulder. Amy has made a special effort to work that shoulder, in addition to addressing my overall alignment and ranges of motion. She has a good eye for analyzing a student's performance, and she articulates even the finest adjustments to one's positions very clearly. She brings great professionalism to her teaching, with her ability to demonstrate all motions and positions perfectly and her well planned lessons. I look forward to each session! Bill Gifford
For being someone who was never into yoga initially, I found I develop strength and tone muscles through Michelle's yoga classes. They are a perfect balance of body resistance training in addition to stretching and relaxation. I am hooked!
Hadley was my first yoga instructor, and though I do go to other classes, she's still the most caring, attentive and personable teacher. She's great at helping me go beyond what I'm currently able to do and provides excellent encouragement and support.
Amy is professional, soothing and personable!!!!! Perfect combo for a perfect experience!!!
Wow what can I say...I was always that guy that thought yoga was for women only. Man was I wrong. Samantha did an amazing job at balancing the support and education with the push I needed. She has such a radiant personality and she brings her sense of humor into her practice. As a former college football player all I did was strength train. Working with Samantha for a few months has me feeling not only more flexible but stronger. Most importantly I have to continue to focus on BREATHING! Namasté
