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!
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 was somewhat new to the art of Yoga when I began attending Martha's classes. Practicing Yoga with Martha was everything that I had hoped Yoga would be. Martha's voice is calming and nurturing and brings a feeling of peace throughout the class session. Martha reminds us to go at a pace that is comfortable for each individual and feels right for our bodies. Attending her classes helps me to forget the world around me and to focus on myself and find peace. I find Martha's class sessions to be a perfect balance of gentle calming stretches through a smooth progression between poses. Not only do I plan to return to Martha's Yoga classes as often as I am able, but I would highly recommend her to others looking for a perfectly balanced Yoga experience!:)
So excited for ongoing weekly yoga classes with Doris! She offered the first lesson free and it was AMAZING. Her routine struck a great balance between strength and stretching, with a wonderful guided meditation at the end. Doris arrived right on time, complete with an essential oil diffuser, customized playlist, and fun personality! I whole-heartedly recommend Yoga for Everyone (but not on Wednesday evenings; she's mine then!!).
I have attended Mary's restorative yoga class for several weeks. Her class has been great for me to learn the benefits of this type of yoga. She has been an awesome and supportive instructor that is all inclusive. I would reccomend Mary and all of her classes to anyone! Kara- Crysal, MN
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!
Danielle was amazing. She made us feel comfortable immediately. Very patient and helpful with "the newbies!"

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.
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.
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.
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.
Yoga, the practice of unifying mind, body, spirit, is an ongoing practice. My practice seems to be unique to the Twin Cities area as I have practiced all over the world, however mostly in California and India.
I have been teaching private yoga sessions since November of 2014. Yoga has helped me get through incredibly difficult times and come out as a stronger person. I think the mental benefits are as great as the physical benefits. I hope to share this passion with as many people as I can reach.
