Poppy is totally warm and welcoming and sweet. I met with her when I had never done yoga before and was considering private lessons. She even taught me some basic yoga breathing. I couldn’t afford private lessons in the end, but anyone whose business hires her is very lucky! She also offers some type of recharging/recentering/energy work session (I don’t remember how to describe it) but I was very interested and still may do it in the future. I don’t even want to pay for full price yoga classes so I should expect not to be able to afford private classes. But I am sure the classes for businesses are well worth it!
I learned of Jessica through my daughter and I couldn't understand why she loved personal training. I received a few sessions for Christmas and now have become an loyal client! I now see Jessica twice a week. One day for strength training and big sweaty workout, and a second day to learn and practice yoga. I have come to love having someone come to my house and having privacy while I learn yoga. I have never practiced yoga before, but love it now. (There is also no Yoga studio within 15 miles of me). I also do strength training and at at 62 I feel that I am in the best shape of my life. I wish I would have started weight training and yoga 30 years ago. My arthritis has improved, my endurance is way up, and people cannot believe I am 62.
I would highly recommend Kristie for personal yoga instruction. I was nervous about getting back into yoga after a while and with a weird foot injury, but she was extremely patient and understanding. She started out asking about any injuries and made sure to point out the poses where I may want to adjust due to my foot. She was also great about giving a couple of different options when I felt like things were too hard or too easy, and she made hands on corrections without pushing me too far. She will definitely be able to adjust her flows to your needs and all levels!
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!
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.
Yoga means literally to "yoke" the connection between breath and body. It is a great first step in creating a healthier lifestyle as yoga brings greater body awareness, flexibility, and peace of mind. Yoga is a lifelong journey that is unique to each person and is applicable to life on and off the mat.

I am looking for organizations, companies, and housing communities who are looking to provide yoga, fitness, and wellness programs for their employees and residents. I am available mornings before work, over the lunch hour, or even after work. I also have a network of instructors I'm connected to who can cover any time slot you are interested in. I look forward to working with you! Formats I am currently trained in.... Vinyasa Yoga Prenatal Yoga Gentle Yoga Restorative Yoga Barefoot Bootcamp Pilates Fusion
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've taken a number of yoga classes with various instructors throughout the years. After a two year hiatus I decided to start practicing yoga again. I've attended two of Martha's classes so far and have enjoyed them a lot. It's been great to be in a group setting with an instructor that pays attention to their students' needs and changes the class accordingly. Martha also has a calm voice and helps demonstrate some of the harder poses. I've enjoyed being challenged in my yoga practice!
Julia has 10 years of experience and practice with yoga. Her teaching style is intuitively inspired by the students needs, ranging from a strong vinyasa flow to slow, therapeutic structural work. She teaches with a playful spirit, encouraging students to find balance between challenge and a joyful exploration of practice. Her hope is to support students and teachers along this magical path of self-discovery, ecstatic awakening, and deep connection to sat guru, the true teacher within, through the beautiful teachings of yoga, with the hope of each student finding a more heightened awareness of their most true, divine nature. She is honored to be teaching in a time where students are so selflessly willing to challenge themselves in practice and is eternally grateful for the eclectic mix of teachers in her life and their infinite inspiration.
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.
I have been taking yoga classes at large corporate companies for several years, they provide the basics but not what I was looking for. Nicole at NALA provides a personal and customized yoga experience. Her energy is warm and sincere. I left her class feeling rejuvenated !!
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.
Yoga is for everyone not just people who can afford expensive classes. One on one yoga is a way to make up your own routine at your own speed.
