Nicky was extremely attentive and intuitive when working with me and gauging the type of experience that would benefit me most. My level of yoga experience was that of a novice, yet she knew I could push harder and helped me to escape my comfort zone relatively seemlessly. It was awesome to be able to have her come into my home and work with me on my schedule. I definitely recommend her and her services!

I hired Nicky to give my daughter and I a meditation lessons and it more than met my expectations! She is very friendly and knowledgeable. After the lessons I felt not only extremely relaxed but that we now had the tools to meditate on our own. I would highly recommend Nicky!!!

I did not even know if I would like yoga. Others in the class had been to yoga before so I did not know if I would fit in and I did not know what to expect. Well I fit right in. I was not intimidated by others in the class and the instructor modified moves just for me as I have a back problem. Learned there is so much more to yoga then just breathing. Always left the class feeling better than when I got there.

Being a newbie to Yoga, I was nervous about being able to master the poses. Lisa was always encouraging and went at a pace I could keep up with. As I continued to take her classes, my confidence in the poses improved. I particularly enjoyed the last several minutes of meditation which were extremely relaxing. I would recommend Subtle Movements Yoga to anyone interested, beginner or experienced!

I was extremely impressed with Natalya’s sensitive yet demanding style of teaching. Having never taken Yoga classes before, I was unsure what to expect or how to judge her aptitude as an instructor. I decided to let time and my body determine for me. Classes started out very slowly, and although they became gradually more challenging, Natalyia remained sensitive to my body’s limitations till the end. Now, having taken ten classes with her, I feel that I can join a group session anywhere knowing that I have acquired the necessary tools to confidently follow my teacher’s instructions. I recommend Natalyia whole-heartedly and will dearly miss her as well as her classes.

Nataliya is really an attentive and compassionate yoga teacher. I feel very comfortable and well taken care of in her classes. Not only does she goes out of her way to make sure you are comfortable and supported but she is quite knowledgeable in her practice. I love my classes with her!

Dina is a great friend and I have been grateful to attend yoga and floor exercise class with her. She is calming, attentive, and careful with her adjustments, and her music is spot-on - definitely the vibe I look for in a meditative yoga session. It was the best private yoga I've ever had, and I learned a lot with her suggestions and notes.

The best yoga classes I've ever experienced are with Dina. She is very thorough in explaining all of the positions and the feeling and intention that drives this amazing practice. It has definitely transformed me in mind, body and spirit. She is truly gifted and in return has given me a wonderful gift :)

Kelly is a highly experienced and deeply compassionate instructor. She brings multiple aspects of yoga practice- asanas, essential oils, singing bowls and meditation- uniquely designed to each student’s needs. She continues her own professional development to bring new aspects of practice to enrich and deepen the shared practice. The practice room is calm and soothing and scheduling is highly flexible. My experience over the past year with Kelly has been wonderful in every respect!

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!

Yogi Brian does a great job of creating a positive environment. I love how he makes the group work together, and modifies all poses depending on your experience/level. I've grown a lot because of him!

I loved Keri Ann. She was welcoming and I felt like I could tell her anything, and I felt like she wasn't judging me, I opened up to her very quickly and I don't really do that with most people we started with basic stretches that I never even knew or tried in a yoga class it was very relaxing ,she put all her effort into showing me if I was doing it right even though she knew I was watching her she was making sure I was doing it right to we started out doing a lot of breathing exercises which I've been doing day by day and still feeling better I can't wait to see her again next Friday ! Thank You Thumbtack for finding the perfect yoga teacher that fits my needs and to become more balanced.

Keri*Ann came to our rented home and taught a group of 7 of us Yoga. A mixed gender and mixed experienced group, Keri*Ann, quickly understood the particular energy of our group and aligned and personalized her lesson. She really made us feel as though she was having as much fun as we were! Keri*Ann was also super professional, punctual, and responsive prior to her coming. I would definitely use her again!

The best yoga classes I have ever taken. I have always felt stronger and rejuvenated every class I've taken with her. She goes beyond just teaching the yoga poses to strengthen the body and followed the sessions with meditation that strengthened the soul.

Debra Ann gives so much to her clients, she is a trainer, a weight loss EXPERT, (she knows more about nutrition than anyone I know and it's my interest also,) therapist and cheer leader. I can't speak highly enough about this gem. She works so hard for me and all her clients as she truly cares. That is a rare quality in any profession and this is not an easy one. She has kept my weight at the ideal level and my body is much stronger and fitter for just having known her. She is so MOTIVATIONAL it's unreal. There are few genuinely caring, enthusiastic and knowledgeable professionals in the field like Debra Ann.

It wasn't until I started working with a nutritionist that I started seeing the results I wanted. I have lost a total of 64 pounds ; from March 2016 up until now. It was a long difficult Journey that took a lot of will power, determination and consistency; but with the help of this wonderful nutritionist I was able to achieve my goals. She helped me figure out the calories I needed to consume along with listing certain foods I should and shouldn't eat. Taking that chance and going to see her was one of the best decisions I have ever made.

Kathy's class was excellent. I developed great upper body strength with long lean muscles. She demonstrates an excercise and also shows variations that are easier/ more challenging so everyone felt they were able to participate and get the most out of the class. She always was concerned for the participants well being and would caution not to do anything that could cause injury or pain. Kathy is an excellent teacher. I enjoyed every class.

Evelyn started teaching my class, and I have to say my outlook on Yoga, and myself as a yoga student, changed dramatically. Even though I'm kind of a "back-row" sort of student she never fails to find a way to reach out to me in a supportive and practical way that really "cuts through it". She always says that it's really not about being flexible or strong, but about finding yourself. But I'm getting so much stronger and I feel great!

So the first thing you notice is the dazzling smile, the warm laugh and caring demeanor. With her words and teaching, she conveys wisdom, but in a light-hearted and approachable way. My sessions with her are well-organized, tailored and very thoughtful. She must spend as much time preparing for the session as I do in it! If you want a teacher that’s fully present, focused and a delight to be around, Evelyn is for you.

Being in the presence of Joy and the way she genuinely puts all of herself into the service of others, feels like being home. Her attitude of "glow your glow" is contagious both in terms of her heartfelt yoga guidance as well as the way she encourages creating space to glow in all realms of life. Taking her yoga class allowed me to find alignment between the healing aspects of yoga and finding that balance of a glowing heart throughout all my activities in life. She creates such a comforting, open, and trusting environment that allows everyone to safely enjoy their unique potential to glow. Everyone deserves the opportunity to unleash their inner glow and participating in Joy's yoga classes is a supreme way to connect! Words are completely inadequate to describe the experience and my gratitude for her gifts in this world- I can't recommend her enough.

I have taken various types of yoga classes for years. But none have touched my heart in this way. Joy's recent class in Boston was filled with community, spontaneity and love. I left feeling connected in both physically and spiritually and left in a relaxed yet vibrant state.

Cheryl is well trained in yoga. If a student has a problem with a yoga position or balance, Cheryl tries to accommodate based on the needs of the student. Cheryl communicates with her students in advance of the lesson if she will be absent .

The website is directed at a past business, as I have since closed my dance studio and started teaching yoga and dance through out the tri-state. I have been an instructor of movement for over 15 years and a yoga instructor for 4 years. I help clients in group settings, as well as in private instruction to best suit their needs. I am the private yoga instructor at the beautiful Glenmere Mansion. I'm tailoring classes to meet every student's specific needs. If it's breath work, meditation, or a vigorous yoga practice that's very physical, I can meet your needs as an extremely well-rounded instructor.


Private yoga sessions are a great way to strengthen your practice, tone your body and cultivate breath awareness. With a strong dance background, my style can be described as a breath centered vinyassa flow with a focus on alignment and body awareness. Coaching is a unique and exciting innovation that guides you to find the food and lifestyle choices that best support YOU! Your personalized program will create a space that will enable you to reach your current and future health and wellness goals. Together, we will explore specific concerns. You will not only learn how to live a healthier and more active lifestyle, you will also learn how to constantly evolve and align yourself with your purpose and passion!
