Before I took Jacquie's bubbling and rainbow meditation class, I had no idea that I hold the power to help heal and protect myself on a daily basis. Being empathic, I pick up lots of energy everywhere I go and this can make for unnecessarily stressful and emotional times, but Jacquie gave me the tools to help cleanse and shield myself and stay comfortable everywhere I go. I also love working with the angels to help cleanse my energy and my surroundings - something I had no idea I could do until I took Jacquie's class! Jacquie is understanding, compassionate and wonderful to work with; I highly recommend her class and healing sessions.

I had the pleasure of taking a private yoga lesson with Jennifer. She's an amazing teacher. I was very impressed by her experience and knowledge about yoga. She made me feel very comfortable. At the end of the session I felt very relaxed. She taught me many poses to help with my back pain. I will be taking more sessions with her.

My experience during my first reiki healing sessions were better than I could have ever expected. Nicky's calm and nuturing demeanor is only part of the reason why I will be making more appointments through Mahalo Healing. In addition to creating such a relaxing enviroment with calming music and her soft tone of voice, Nicky also took the time to personalize my treatment and provided me with a "take home" sheet which included mantras that I could use through meditation. Since I have been receiving reiki in hopes to enhance fertility, she guided me in understanding the 7 chakras and ways I can "awaken" them (specifically my second chakra). She taught me self massage techniques to continue after our session which I have been doing daily. I've already felt such a positive shift in my life since our first sessions and I look forward to continuing this journey with Mahalo Healing! ....oh and the best part! She comes to you! Couldn't be more convenient . Lots of Love to MH for sharing your love and dedication to heal and make a positive impact on others!

Mary is my favorite yoga teacher ever...no exaggeration. I have been practicing yoga for about 10 years and have experienced perhaps 20 teachers for multi-month periods and nobody has advanced my practice as much as Mary, either physically or spiritually--and she has done both for me, enabling me to progress much further than I thought possible for me. She is truly a master who easily integrates many elements into a practice and she is highly differentiated. There is different, excellent and value-add, and then there is masterful--and she is the latter, uniquely so in my experience.

There are many pd programs out there but few if any really try to make the content relevant to every person in the group. The mindfulness questionnaire helped us focus in on very specific practices that can make us want to practice every day. My group left inspired and more resilient than every before.

If one person has been put on this earth to use their skills and knowledge of yoga to better the lives of others, it is Danny. Compassionate, patient, and insightful, Danny has not only helped me with a number of specific injuries and discomforts, but also introduced me to how yoga technique and practice can fit into and improve any lifestyle -- even for busy, results-oriented (Type A) people like myself who previously believed cardio was the be-all, end-all of health and fitness. Along with seeking straightforward yoga instruction, I've also come to Danny with lower back pain, a mysterious sprain/spasming at the top of my leg from cycling (quickly diagnosed as a pulled sartorius muscle, for which Danny knew a number of pain-relieving stretches and poses), and general tightness in my neck and shoulders. When I meet with Danny, I know that I'm going to be listened to, thoughtfully instructed, and generally well cared-for. I've also taken one of his group yoga classes, in which he is just as attentive and present. As a teacher, Danny manages to instruct, calm, and heal simultaneously. I can't recommend him highly enough for anyone looking for an introduction to or a deepening of yogic practice.

Being new to yoga, I was looking for the right yoga instructor who could help me reach peaceful sustainability, teach me health maintenance, advanced meditation techniques as well as teach me the basic yoga exercises/movements. A wealth of knowledge and training along with the personal attention to my ability, past medical history and future goals is very important to me. I attended several classes at my local gym an was not at all impressed with the instructors, class size, atmosphere and lack of education on the yoga principals/history. I came across Brian on Thumbtack while looking into private instructors in my area. I was immediately impressed with his training in yoga, physical fitness and nutrition. His certifications surpassed all other trainers in the area. So I decided to give him a try. I have had several private and group sessions to date and will enthusiastically continue to practice with Brian. Upon arrival I notice that his studio was pristine and welcoming. His use of aromatherapy as well as herbal teas creates a wonderful scent and a feeling of calm. Brian provided me with a private session to get to know me as a person, my health history, my future goals and introduced me to him and the history and variations of yoga practice. This was a wonderful session and he has since tailored my on-going personal an group sessions based on the information he obtained. Brian's classes are small and personal. Brian: - speaks clearly and his instruction is well-timed with the music and movements -the music is played at a safe speed and is appropriate for the group and atmosphere -Brian exhibits strong movements and posture and demonstrates them properly to the group and offers alternatives for newcomers -all movements are safe and he offers adequate safety tips - motivation and interaction: Brian is incredibly motivated and makes eye contact with participants as well as assist with poses - has an energetic an peaceful environment - Brian's classes have all the expected components; including an adequate warm-up, cool-down and stretch. Meditation is a big part of the classes and personal sessions. I always start and end up feeling completely relaxed and at peace I highly recommend Brian to novice-advanced yoga students. He is highly skilled and very true to his beliefs. Susan Zekala

I am so happy to write this review about the best overall yoga experience I have had so far. Yogi Brian's home studio is warm yet professional, challenging yet relaxing, and a strong workout yet highly meditative. The way he begins and ends each class is far better than yoga I have experienced at other places. This is worth every penny & more. Yogi Brian is approachable and open to communication while keeping you focused on your practice. You will never feel rushed or not ready for class once a flow begins. I know this is something I will want to continue for as long as I am living in Fairfield County because I have never had a yoga experience that has inspired me to do research for fun. I want to keep practicing & learning about the way different philosophies connect to the dharma style after a month that I was given as a gift from a family member. As you can see I highly recommend!

When I first met Erika, I had just set out to attempt my first ever sprint triathlon. Up to that point, I had been exercising on my own and lost over 100 lbs. I still needed lots of training and only 8 weeks until the race. What Erika then did for me was above and beyond what I could have done on my own. We began training; building powerful muscles and developing balance and stability. She even helped with nutrition planning and recovery tips. I completed my first sprint triathlon but felt my result was lackluster. For a first timer, this was normal. The next day I quickly signed up for another sprint triathlon for that summer. Once we began training for that, Erika amazed me yet again. The training sessions became much more intense. She provided solid motivation to keep up my mental strength. We built lots of explosive muscle and incredible cardio stamina. I finished the 2nd triathlon in the top 50% overall. It felt amazing. The training also translated well in my other hobby, soccer. The results were very real.

I have done private yoga sessions with Erica Straub, and love them. I've always been active and an athlete (and recently done a lot of dance). I find it hard to find teachers that impress me for any activity -- not intentional, but I am a tough critic. That said, Erica is amazing. My yoga sessions with her were some of my favorites ever. I loved her focus on the hips (even more so than other yoga classes), the athleticism required throughout, and her approach. (Not to mention, good music selection too!). She started with poses that weren't traditional lead-ins for a yoga session, and it helped open my body up literally and figuratively. Each time I did a session with her, I felt 100% better than when I started and had lasting benefits on my flexible, strength and state of mind. I highly recommend her!

Rick helped me through a very serious emotional and physical crisis with his precise insight, expert advice, and patience to reach a deeper level of understanding, clarity, and action. I was very despondent, highly stressed, confused, and fundamentally lost with a very complex and difficult series of personal and health problems to navigate. I am very grateful for the immediate specific meditations he suggested, as they helped to calm me, and focus on the positives he suggested that I could control. Rick's healing energy and sensitive intelligence helped to restore my belief in my strengths and gave me renewed ways of thinking through his detailed and highly acute analysis. I know that his ability to reveal the connections underlying these restrictions in me were effective in getting me to transform and feel more in control of my life. Rick's words of wisdom and ability to connect emotionally with me, had a profound effect on my healing. It is very rare to find someone capable of fluently reading a complicated situation without having to explain every detail. Rick is both perceptive in observation, and practical in solutions, he is direct, gets to the heart of the matter in an authentic innovative and caring approach. I am very grateful for the guidance and support I was fortunate to receive.

Rick makes an invaluable asset in my life. I am in my 70s and he keeps me young and aware of the universe. I never stop learning. He teaches me mindfulness so that I keep aware of my health and the threats I can sometimes open the door to, through pre-occupations with family. He reminds me of my own value system so that I stay true to it and behave in a manner that is consistent with those beliefs. Therefore, I’m always growing. He has the ability to analyze situations in practical ways as well. But his most distinguishing characteristic is his empathy. I think this also comes from his diverse background that is such an asset in his work. One knows he’s lived it! So, he can offer many solutions. He’s very patient and extremely kind. Predominantly, he wants to help people and help them to succeed. You know he’s on your side. I do. And, I’m very grateful to have found him! Michele G

Jesse is a great teacher and has a really gentle, kind, and calming presence. I have a hard time meditating on my own (am somewhat new to the practice), and I need guidance and the social aspect of a teacher to help me commit and focus. He helps me get to a much better state of relaxation and focus than I could on my own. He's also well versed in different kinds of meditations and I like the variety. It really helps me to focus on the different imagery he brings to get into the meditation. I'm so grateful for the deep relaxation and stress reduction meditating with him has brought to my life.
