Michelle is SO WORTH IT! Every time I come in we discuss goals, how I’m improving and in two weeks there has already been a noticeable difference in how my body is going from Pillsberry dough boy to being the terminator. Well it’s not that drastic but you get my point. Michelle is so easy to get along with and flexible with my schedule. (She kinda has to be, she teaches yoga) lol. But seriously, she’s awesome. Pick her as your trainer. DO IT!
Jessica is an amazing trainer. When I began training with Jess almost 3 years ago I was a year out from having twins. I learned early on from Jess that that inches come off faster than the pounds. After 4 months I was down 10lbs and that didn't seem like a lot but I lost 27inches and went from a size 12 to a size 6. With monthly measurements you can see and feel that you are achieving a goal and that building muscle does not mean bulking up if done right! As time progressed and I built more muscle, literally one day the pounds just flew off (20+ lbs lost). I stated when we met that I would never be able to do a sit up. I have since blown that out of the water and run numerous 5k's, 10k's, and 3 half marathons! The last being Big Sur, my dream! I also had a very high and erratic heart rate. After 3 years my heart rate has improved and is 30-40 beats lower while running. I now understand the need for a personal trainer. She pushes me beyond what I would make myself do. However, Jess will also listen as I have chronic IT Band issues. She understands when I say that I need to back down on something (as I never back down). Jess is an amazing trainer who will teach you new things about yourself and introduce you to new workouts you may not think of (TRX, Yoga, Boxing, how to use paper plates in a workout if you don't have equipment). She is truly amazing and most importantly we work as a team to achieve goals together! It speaks volumes that now my mother has come to understand why I use a trainer. My mother has now taken up strength training and yoga with Jess at the age of 62!
Hi! We hired incorporate yoga for a corporate event. The teacher was great. Very professional and the people ended up leaving refreshed. We are thinking of adding yoga and meditation as a regular offering. They also do tai chi classes as well. I would highly recommend incorporate yoga and the wonderful experience they provide.
I've been working with Andrea for several months and have a plan in place for the entire year. I expect to continue working with her indefinitely.She is phenomenal in three distinct ways: 1. she is an expert in what she does. Andrea draws on years of experience with athletes as well as her own creatiivty to make workouts that are varied, challenging, fun and explicitly tailored to skill level. 2. her approach is holistic: nutrition and diet play an instrumental role in fitness and Andrea helped me set up goals on My Fitness Pal and gives me feedback once a week on how I am doing. I have workouts for the entire week not just for our sessions together. She understands that mental stress also impacts physical fitness and encouraged me to incorporate yoga or meditation into my routine. Key to Andrea is to help you stretch but also listen to your body. 3. is attitude: Andrea is incredibly down to earth and invested in her clients' success. I haven't worked with other trainers but I was formerly a competitive runner and team captain, and I also interviewed many other trainers, so I have seen first hand that someone can have the intellectual knowledge but lack the coaching ability or holistic view of what it takes to meet your goals. Can't say enough wonderful things about Andrea. I'm getting stronger and feeling my best self working with her.
I especially appreciate the one on one yoga sessions with Doris. She is an awesome yogy. Xpert at form.
I took prenatal yoga, restorative yoga, and barre with Mary at different times. She is an amazing instructor! She incorporates essential oils, and does posture corrections. I feel like a different person when I walk out of her classes. She is an amazing light!
I took Alex's C1 class at Core Power Minnetonka one evening after teaching a yoga class myself and thoroughly enjoyed it! She provided excellent cues and gave wonderful hands on adjustments. Alex is passionate about providing her students with a positive experience by providing a safe and welcoming environment for students to learn and grow in their yoga practices.
Katie brings a new energy to teaching yoga with great attention to detail.
Michelle & I have met twice & I had my first session yesterday. She focuses on the spiritual aspects of yoga as well as the physical. I slept like a baby last evening. I own an addiction clinic in Bloomington & have hired her to work with my clients as well!
I did extensive yoga training in India. I specialize in hatha, ashtanga and vinyasa yoga. My primary focus is increasing flexibility by learning and maintaining proper form during and after the practice.
Class schedule in my Edina, MN home: * Tuesdays, 6:30-8:00 p.m. * Thursdays, 9:30-11:00 a.m. * Saturdays, 9:30 a.m. Private instruction is available. Call in advance to register for classes. These are the essentials about me: As a teacher, I help bring awareness to those areas of the body that are unconscious to each person. I give technical points as to how this body machine of ours works, but more importantly, I truly care about the human beings who have honored me by letting me into their lives. I get excited when they discover a breakthrough in their mind/body work. I see the perfect pose in everyone, yet I do not care at all about perfecting poses. The pose is a direction, a form that one's body moves toward. Your body is somewhere in that form it is not a form imposed on your body. That is why everybody can do my yoga. I gently guide and encourage you to move in a direction of opening your body and making it strong, so that it can open. This is a joyous process for me and the students. Trying to define my style in yoga is like trying to define me I will leave it to my students to describe their experience in my classes and retreats. I have taught yoga in the Twin Cities for over 30 years. I began studying hatha yoga and meditation 35 years ago when I was writing my master's thesis in philosophy. Disciples of Swami Rama and the Himalayan Institute constituted the yoga community in my area at that time. The focus was on breathing, meditation and a gentle soft style of hatha yoga. I studied exclusively with these people for seven years. When I realized I loved yoga and it was my purpose in life to be a yoga teacher, I began traveling around the world to take teacher training programs.
I work with students to meet them where they are with yoga. If you are looking for improved mobility and fitness or a mind and body connection, we will create a practice that feels good and offers a challenge to help you grow. From restorative yoga to powerful flow and even the depths of hot yoga, I'm sure that we will find a perfect match for you. Does group fitness make you uneasy? I'll help you prepare to join a class or happily teach you individually. Let's talk about what you need.
I have been teaching gentle, mindful, hatha yoga classes that are iyengar/kripalu inspired. The focus is on the health and well-being of the mind, body and spirit.
I have very descriptive cues that I often get complemented on, I'm very good at taking feedback and building my practice to be able to serve anyone from beginners to advanced. Breath plays a very important role in my practice. My most favorite thing about my job would be making relationships with my students, watching them grow. Another thing I love is having begenners, although it doesn't matter your level I love teaching people.

After receiving my yoga alliance certification in 2012, I continued my studies and earned my nutrition coaching certificate the following summer. I began my teaching career with an internship at Caron Chiropractic Clinic, and since then I have been teaching at a number of reputable establishments including the YWCA, Jewish Community Center, and the St. Paul Athletic Club. Last summer, I also had the great opportunity to work with Fitness in the Parks. I have developed a strong following of wonderful yogis, and I would be honored to lead private and semi-private lessons in the comfort of your home.
Amber Marie Heigl (Marigold) began her yoga journey in 2007 after a year of rigorously studying dance, music, and performance education at California Pacific College of the Performing Arts. After completing the program, she received a music certificate in the performing arts and returned home to Minnesota. Not sure where to exactly go next, she enrolled in Minneapolis Community and Technical College to continue her studies. There she enrolled in a hatha yoga class and from then on, her yoga path began. From studying dance most of her life, yoga was an innate practice for her. Marigold continued to practice on her own and attend classes at various studios after the course at MCTC. In 2011, she began studying more intensely while being involved in the Karma Yoga program at Svasti Yoga. There, she studied classical Indian yoga and Reiki under Laurie Endris. In January of 2015, Marigold Amber traveled to Nashik, India, and completed the Yoga Pravesh course. She also received her diploma in yoga education. Marigold teaches a combination of classical Indian yoga, meditation, aatha, and ashtanga yoga. She can also offer therapies, such as sound and Reiki healing.
