Dan is a fantastic teacher. If you are looking for singing lessons you'll be hard pressed to find a better teacher.

When we started I thought that some people just can't sing and that I was one of those people. Not only did I not know how to sing, I had no idea how to *learn* to sing. Dan was super patient and I felt like he figured how I needed to learn just as much as what I needed to learn.

Singing is a life long journey, and I still have a long way to go, but the difference in my confidence and ability since working with Dan is like night and day. I recommend Dan highly.

I have done a lot of yoga since 2009 and am very into the technical aspects: alignment and terminology.

About Natalie
After graduating high school at the top of my class, I got full funding for an economics degree at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor where I was born. I was very busy in college--my extracurriculars included 2 semesters abroad (Spain, Singapore), writing an honors thesis, being a consultant to the academic advising office, and being president of an honor society; besides this I worked my butt off in classes and graduated with a 3.7.

Besides academics, I am super interested in fitness, general wellness and psychology.

I would love to talk it out with you wherever our learning interests intersect!

David was AMAZING! And our team thoroughly enjoyed the session. I understand that I was charged incorrectly so he was not paid right for this service. I hope that you do take care of him since I did ask to verify if the price was correct when I initially requested the service.
Thanks!

Yoga is just a job to me, it’s my life’s greatest joy and passion and I do my very best to bring that into every students life that I work with. I’ve had a chance to study and learn from some amazing teachers and I’ve devoted myself to becoming the best I can be at improving my clients physical, mental and emotional well being.

I want you to feel like you can accomplish anything, that’s what Yoga has done for me and more. There is strength and happiness inside us all and I strive to really bring that out in every person I’m lucky enough to share this practice with.

I was able to leave an extremely stressful life and career in Manhattan NY behind to pursue my best self. I absolutely love the life I get to lead, I’ve shared what I’ve learned in class settings, with clients one on one, at risk youth programs, substance abuse centers, celebrities and professional athletes worldwide retreats and just about everything in between.

Whether your goal is strength, flexibility, stress ...

About John
Hi yogis! Very excited to help you with your journey into the path of yoga.

Yoga has been such a life-changing practice for me, I was able to leave a highly stressful job and lifestyle in New York City behind to pursue my greatest passion of self betterment and helping others.

I’ve been able to learn from some amazing teachers in that time and have worked with a wide range of classes and students from folks brand new to the practice and physical activity to seasoned yogis, pro athletes, celebrities, people with illnesses and injuries, children and the elderly.

I’ve found that everyone has a hidden strength inside, a potential for happiness and their best self and my goal has been and will be to help bring it out you. I’m so grateful to wake up in the morning and do what I love every single day. Yoga is not a part time job or a s
ide gig for me, it’s my greatest passion and lifestyle.

I’m constantly trying to find the newest and best ways to challenge my students while making physical and mental changes accessible and above all fun! I demand my students work hard because true change is never easy, but it is so gratifying! Above all I also require that it brings a smile to their face!

I look forward to hearing your story and knowing how I can help. Let’s get on the path to your best self together!

John is always educating himself in order to keep providing new insight his yogis to incorporate into their routine. Always was able to pick up new things with him over the course of a few years. I have found with other instructors there is always new learning the first few sessions but slows down soon after.
