I started working with my personal trainer, Peter Lucas, who views things with a holistic approach, to improve overall health, well-being, and spirituality. He’s helped me see obstacles as opportunities instead! He’s helped me with nutrition, meditation, journaling and having a healthy, wholesome, and positive attitude and perspective towards life. Also from him I’m slowly learning some kinesiology addressing physiological, biomechanical, and psychological mechanisms of movement. He’s like a Buddha, really— calm, patient, and kind. Usually I am scared sh*tless to go on walks by myself especially on busy main streets. It’s anxiety inducing because I have Tourette urges where I want to jump out into traffic or I worry about having tics where I fall and roll all over the floor, scraping my knee pretty badly but working with Peter Lucas has helped me formed a “just do it” mentality, living in the moment and stop forecasting so damn much. So now I go on brisk walks everyday for at least 20 minutes, workout five times a day for at least half an hour, and learning how to meditate and eat right. Even though it hasn’t been 12 weeks yet (the amount of time I am working with Peter) I can vouch that he is compassionate, loving, understanding, knowledgeable, patient, humorous, funny, free-spirited, laid-back and down to earth. Overall an amazing human being. I also appreciate his calmness and tranquility when I lunge at him, toss things at him, or have other tourette symptoms that night be startling and nerve wracking to others. It helps me remain calm and less anxious and to focus on my workout. Thank you Peter at Full Spectrum Performance If you need a personal trainer, I’d recommend him Even though I’m selfish and would like to keep this person, this gem to myself hahaha I’m looking forward to continue this transformation with him.
Chris is an amazing teacher! I have been attending her yoga classes for several years now and I find her instructions very easy to follow and very motivating. She is very patient with her students and she is great at encouraging everyone to focus on their body in order to get the maximum benefit from the class. She is always professional and punctual. She keeps everyone informed of the schedule and the cost of her classes are very reasonable.
Elizabeth is an amazing yoga teacher. She truly cares about practicing the right way, and will adjust to fit your individual needs. She pays close attention to detail, and she works hard to see improvement in each and every student. Young or old, private or group, Elizabeth will fit your needs!
The best yoga teacher!
Michael is awesome! He's a very calming presence and helps you feel very comfortable in his class. He helped me see yoga as an exercise for your whole person- body and spirit. I recommend him to everyone who is searching for a private teacher or a class.
I've known Christy for nearly eight years & Admire her loving spirit, encouragement, guidance & wisdom that she's gained over her young adult life. I was able to train with her in Reiki Levels 2 & 3 . As a teacher & a life coach she's always been remarkable!
Hien has a very genuine approach to teaching yoga. She guides the physical practice and uses it as a tool to reach the spiritual, which is something I don't encounter very often. Her teaching style is clear and calm, with just enough directions to guide the body while allowing a quiet atmosphere for the mind. She gives options and alternatives for a variety of poses, and makes yoga accessible and enjoyable for everyone.
Anu is an excellent teacher and she brings in meditation during the yoga session. There is a beautiful mindfulness and serenity in her classes. I look forward to continuing my lessons with her.
Linda has attuned me to Level II in Reiki and performed both a life and spirit activation on me over the course of the last year to which I owe her great thanks because the combination of the three has changed my life. I will admit that I was initially skeptical, especially in regards to the life and spirit activation. I had heard of Reiki and met others who had used it previously so I was certainly on board with it but I could find little information about the activations online or by word of mouth which made me a little wary. I was visiting her home in Washington with her son for Thanksgiving when she did my life activation and on vacation with her and her family for Christmas when she followed up with my spirit activation. A little back story on me -- I have struggled with depression for a very long time. It ebbs and flows but is significantly worse around the holidays. Additionally, I had been feeling really alone during this time period as well because I had recently relocated to the Bay Area and didn't really have a support network -- it was hard to make friends in the city who seemed genuine and I didn't have many people to talk to. I had considered moving back to Portland because it was familiar to me and felt like home. In the last two months things took a turn following my activations. Recently I have grown much closer to two or three people I had met at work who have introduced me to their social circles. I finally started to have plans on the weekend and felt like I had people to talk to. I realized I didn't feel lonely all the time. I also started to enjoy the time I did spend alone and was practicing better self care. I was cleaning more, taking baths, meditating and exercising more frequently -- all things I enjoy that usually slip through the craps when I am in a rut of depression. I was laughing more and smiling more and not taking out my anger/frustrations (the secondary emotion that usually comes out when I am depressed and scared) on my boyfriend, Linda's son. On my vacation Jay's sister even commented that I seemed much happier, which I have never heard in my life. After Christmas and my spirit activation, I came back to start the new year at work and started taking more initiative. I recently realized I have become increasingly more confident in myself and who I am as a person and a professional. I have always gotten excellent feedback in every job but have been told as well that my lack of pride in myself and self-confidence could likely lead to a plateau in my career and I was told last week in a one on one with my boss that I suddenly seem to have more confidence than ever. I have struggled my entire life with feelings of worthlessness and lack of pride due to challenges in my upbringing and I can honestly say for the first time in my life I am happy with who I am. I actually feel like I add value to the lives of people around me which I never thought was possible. The craziest part of all of this is it took me until about a few days ago to draw the parallel between my new joy and Linda's activations. I woke up one morning before my alarm and was laying comfortably in bed with my dog and had the thought "I am suddenly so much happier and I don't know why". It was then that I started thinking about what had changed in the last two months and the only thing that I had added to my life was the life and spirit activation. Opening me up to the light helped me help myself and for that I am truly grateful. I don't think I am even the slightest bit biased despite my personal connection with Linda -- if anything I actually am starting to wonder if the universe brought her healing energy to me through Jay, her son, in order for me to find myself! I would encourage anyone who is wanting to be a better version of themselves to seek out Linda's support.
I have taken various yoga classes from Ellie Luna. She's bright and engaging and very skilled at yoga. She led me in a wonderful flow class that stretched and strengthened every part of my body. Her instructions are clear and coherent, and she pays personal attention to every student. After doing yoga for 30 years, I was finally able to stand on my head for the first time thanks to Ellie's help and support! I recommend her highly.
I signed up for 5 weeks of individual yoga sessions. One down so far and my initial experience was great. Jean took the time to learn about me and what type of yoga might be most appropriate for my situation and condition. Looking forward to the next 4 weeks! She is a great teacher.
I went to Kelly's Max Meditation and now I can't stay away. I am a regular meditator at home, however, her Max Meditation evenings are pretty special and worth the trip. I can honestly say I am "taken away" for an hour. I love the combination of passive and guided meditation in the same hour - I learn so much about myself and what I receive is amazing too! I leave feeling so peaceful and relaxed.
She is the greatest teacher for this kind of job, I have learned so much in the time I've been there. We all have a chance to say what is on our mind and we get answers from Sandy and others from the group. I have enjoyed this meeting so much Sandy our teacher, she's loving and listens to all of us. Thank you Sandy so much for your effort to help us all.
Pamela is an incredibly inspirational and knowledgeable yoga instructor! From the opening Dharma Talk to the closing Meditation, her words and flow bridge mind and body leaving me refreshed and centered. She was able to quickly assess my practice and meet me at that level while safely improving my poses through her attention to detail. It’s obvious Pamela cares about her practice and those she is leading allowing me to always look forward to the next session!
Jeanette is an extremely compassionate and gifted practitioner. Her reiki sessions are very targeted, and she gave me the option of doing a combination of both reiki and a guided meditation specific to my needs at the same time. I think this approach provides an even stronger response. My experience was extremely comfortable and positive, and she was very professional and prepared. I would highly recommend Jeanette for both her reiki treatments as well as her personalized meditations!
