I have been training with Chitown trainers for several months. I attend the yoga classes and utilize the personal training service. The trainers are extremely professional and competent. The training has been the best training experience I have had because they work at your level and gradually build your tolerance and strength. I have experienced change in my ability to run, lift weight and my balance. I highly recommend their services, they are simply excellent!
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.
I hired Mary to be a yoga instructor for my fitness retreat, and she was the perfect fit. She tailored the class for our needs (gentle yoga for sore muscles). I've done yoga for years with several different instructors, and I believe she is a wonderful teacher!
I've been taking yoga classes with Tara for nearly 10 years. She's an excellent teacher who encourages proper alignment in the postures. I especially like that she's able to tailor classes and offer alternative poses to all students abilities.
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!
Loukia is an OUTSTANDING yoga teacher! I really value her knowledge, dedication, and passion for yoga. She has taught me to truly embrace the present moment on and off the yoga mat. Loukia’s teaching style and professionalism are second to none. I highly recommend Erini Yoga!! 10/10
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.
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.
Training is incomparable as this Instructor has anatomy training through her years working with Chiropractors, and Master Yoga Instructors, and is "Hands On."
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!
CurvyChick Yoga is patient and flexible. She explains everything throughly and helps to give to just the right push in order to get you out of your comfort zone and to your next level. I highly recommend this business!
I loved working with her! Great person with a calming sense and attitude.
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.
I am a 200-hour certified hatha yoga instructor. I have done my training with a 9-month training program at Temple of Kriya.
I'd say I stand out from other yoga teachers because I am very welcoming! We laugh in class, we smile. I talk about the postures and what they are doing for you and your body. I focus on alignment, calm, concentration and strength. My class is a strong class. I do not teach hot yoga, I do not teach yoga with weights. Just good-old Yoga!
I can design programs to suit any goal. I have been training clients for over ten years, and I have been teaching Yoga for 7. I hold a Masters in applied exercise physiology and a B.S. in Kinesiology. My style is essential centered around techniques utilizing the body/mind connection.
I've been practicing yoga for over 8 years and am getting my yoga training licence in France this August. I love helping people reach their wellness goals and building community.
If you think that learning to touch your toes or even standing on your head is the whole of yoga, you have missed most of its bounty, most of its blessings, and most of its beauty. Yoga releases the creative potential of life. The light that yoga sheds on life is something special; it is transformative. It does not just change the way we see things; it transforms the person who sees. It brings knowledge and elevates it to wisdom. - Sri B.K.S. Iyengar I started my yoga practice at McGaw YMCA in Evanston, Illinois at the ripe age of 20. My first teacher was a sweet Dutch lady named Ine. If you want to know yoga before yoga was a brand, please go visit Ine at the YMCA. She's an absolute delight and yoga in its purest form. I am a registered hatha yoga instructor through the Temple of Kriya in Chicago. I graduated in 2006 and began teaching the day after. I currently lead group classes downtown Chicago and work with private clients building personalized yoga programs. Passionate about my personal practice as a student and teacher, I try to bring humor and lightness to my classes. A perfect class for me would have lots of child poses and a super long savasana. Of course, a few planks and boat poses would add a nice balance. In my yoga practice, I employ numerous styles of hatha and vinyasa flow. As well, I completed training with The Global Yoga Center prenatal yoga teacher program. I have trained with Baron Baptiste, Kathryn Budig, Seane Corn, Suddha Weixler and other esteemed yoga instructors. I am a 200hr registered yoga teacher (RYT) through Yoga Alliance.
I provide an spiritually based Hatha/Vinyasa flow classes, with focus on meditation and pranayama (breath work) as well as techniques for relaxation and stress/anxiety relief on and off the mat.
"He was my trainer at Notre Dame for 6 months. He is awesome! He knows different exercises and you don't get bored. Also, he knows your body and your needs. You will see good results (in my case it was gaining muscles) in a few sessions! He is the best trainer I have ever had!" ~Melika S. , Notre Dame Student "I have been going to John's weekly Men's Yoga class since it began in South Bend. He provides the perfect balance of relaxation, meditation, and yoga poses. His knowledge of the practice is outstanding. Though each class has a mixture of students at various skill levels, he offers adjustments to poses depending on the level you prefer, while always being encouraging. Over the course of the last 6 months I have felt myself become more relaxed and in-tune with my body and mind in all aspects of my life, and I attribute this to my weekly yoga practice with John." ~Kevin S, Yogi in Training "Once I started John's yoga classes, I was hooked. I found complete relaxation after each one and new flexibility! John is an excellent instructor who I recommend to anyone looking to take yoga!" ~Lynda "I have been taking John's yoga class for 4 months now and am so pleased at the progress I have made. He is very patient and always kindly shows us the correct position to be in when we can't get it just right. His class is just the right blend of strengthening and relaxing. I can't wait till it's time for the next class." ~Carol, Baby Boomer
