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 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!
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 approach yoga as a way to get your mind in tune with your body is already capable of, with a non competitive, non perfection approach. Come as you are and enjoy the journey of getting in shape and being healthy.
I am currently a 200-hour-certified power vinyasa teacher and am working on my 500-hour certification. I teach a variety of vinyasa/flow classes and children's yoga classes as well. I am also CPR certified. My focus is to bring the benefits of yoga to everyone and to make yoga fun for all ages!
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.
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.
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
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 provide yoga practice for students who wish to explore yoga, expand their practice or deepen their yoga philosophy on and off the mat. In addition, as a health coach, I provide one-on-one coaching to clients who wish to manage stress, live healthy, active lives and balance their life choices.
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.
Went thrunthumbtack for local yoga possibilities and received a name I followed up with. It was for individual yoga. I'm thinking group. Will consider person referred to though. Not ready right now
