I have been practicing yoga under Caitlin's guidance for almost a year now. I feel as though she has helped me advance my practice not only by explaining postures and their health benefits, but also by incorporating the mental aspects of yoga, ensuring a deep understanding of how the mind is intimately connected to the condition of the physical body. Caitlin has come to my home to lead small private sessions, where she coached me in restorative practices such as self-massage and provided an informative session on the Chakras. I have also had the opportunity to participate in one of Caitlin's weekend yoga retreats, where we combined yoga, interpretive movement, art and writing to set goals for the new year and improve mindfulness, which I truly feel had an incredible influence on my ability to reset my mind and body, and stay focused on my goals and intentions. Her bright spirit and the joy she always seems to find in listening to and helping others is contagious. Highest recommendations!
Cheryl is an exceptional teacher who loves what she does. Her classes are always interesting, varied, and paced so students get results. I have had many yoga teachers. By far, Cheryl is the best trainer and educator I have had. She takes the time to explain what the breath and forms do for the body and why we should do them not just how. She is attentive to the wide range of strengths and challenges of each student and protects us from ourselves, reminding us not to push for 100% of each pose. When I started with Cheryl two years ago, I had a very bad back and very tight muscles. My strength, flexibility, and balance are vastly improved. I am very loyal to her classes because they are the reason for my improved well-being.
One of my best training experiences! Carla is very hands on, knows what she's talking about and is for sure to produce results. From weight lifting to dance to yoga- she makes working out fun!
After several years of looking for different counselors to help our son , my husband and I decided to give Mindfulness a try . He has been diagnosed with ADHD and Anxiety but we didn’t want to resort to medication , so we called Sally . She came into our home for private , 1:1 sessions with our son , because that worked best for our busy schedule . From the first time we met , Sally was pleasant and kind and portrayed a sense of calm . She helped my son build a strong foundation with Mindfulness and he uses the techniques and strategies that he has learned in everyday life, especially as he transitioned to Middle school . We were so pleased with the results and her practice that we decided to sign up our daughter for classes as well . However, she participated in group sessions at the local YMCA with other kids in the community . She loved going and really benefitted from learning the basics . Although she does not have a diagnosis or any struggles in school, we know that as she becomes a young woman she will absolutely be able to use these techniques in any area of her life and build upon them through Sally’s help. Not only was Sally a great teacher and role model for our kids , she continues to keep in touch and frequently send emails and updates for future community events and classes . I also had the pleasure of taking yoga classes with her , which I had recently gotten into after finding out more about the work Sally does and changing our family values to promote positive and healthy relationships . We are so happy to have met her and we now practice Mindfullness as a family !
Though I was not new to yoga, I was returning after an injury to my knee and wanted to get some tips on alternative techniques to further my practice, without re-injuring myself. When I booked a private session, Allison was so knowledgeable in offering and showing me many options that would work for me. She took the time to listen to my needs and respond with a caring attitude. In addition, when I returned to class the following week, Allison made a point of checking in to make sure what she had shown me was indeed working for me!
6/26/2011 I recently graduated from the 200 hour teacher training program, having practiced yoga for about 10 years, this program has helped me discover what my truth is with yoga. For years I thought it was all about the physical stuff, well folks it's not. Daily meditation has become much more profound and my personal yoga practice has a deeper connection. Thank you to my teacher- Cathy.
Working with Mihaela has been transformative. I recently asked her to give my team private yoga instruction as a way to reward great work, and also increase well-being and productivity. She has given us all of that and more. We all feel an incredible change in our bodies, and minds thanks to her coaching. She not only gives us a great full body work out, but she helps us to deal with stresses and anxieties in life and in the workplace. We love working with Mihaela and would recommend her highly to everyone we know, and especially those interested in private yoga classes!
Kate, is 5 stars! Today was first day of practice. Looking forward to day 2, which is tomorrow! I’m going to run Marine Corps Marathon with no running just yoga !
I found Michelle to be very welcoming for someone like me who had no Yoga experience. . She made me feel very comfortable as a newcomer. I would definitely recommend Michelle to others. Ben
Years ago, I received shiatsu massage from Wendy. This was the trigger for many other health improvements for me. When I lived in the Boston area, I also followed yoga courses with Wendy: great instruction, with a gentle lead that takes you to your personal limit. Along the way, and even now (living abroad), Wendy has been there to advised on the many complicated issues in nutrition and diet for general health and fitness. Her command of this knowledge is really impressive. I love how she remains current on these topics so she can pass this knowledge on to me. Wendy is always open to dialogue, new ideas and listening to my own experiences. This makes me feel like we work together as a team in discovering deeper insights to physical and mental health. Working with Wendy is never dull - she is relentless in questioning the current situation and always looking for the best direction forward. Wendy considers all dimensions of health. In short... I trust Wendy's knowledge, skills and judgement.
I'm almost 50 and I needed a way to get back in shape that could work with my very hectic schedule. I love the flexibility and custom sessions.
Jen is an amazing yoga instructor- she challenges you without pressure or pushing you. Under her weekly instruction, I was able to gain strength and flexibility as well as a deeper focus on breathing and introspection. Her classes have great playlists and a fun flow. She is truly the best instructor, I have found and would recommend her classes without reservation!
I felt that Jess listened to me prior to my initial massage. My experience is I want to continue to work with her for optimal well-being
