Wow Sergey is really great at this! My daughter just turned 5 and is still practicing her headstands against the wall hours later. Sergey's advice to have her 'help' me practice MY stretching is a double win and making her more willing to do her pushups and splits too. We are really looking forward to the next class already. Thank you so much for all the advice and feeback post class too, Sergey!

About Amanda
Hello!

Yoga and meditation have been in my life for ten years. After training and being certified with a Yoga Alliance school, I started teaching six years ago. I love teaching beginners and using therapeutic modifications to safely engage with injuries.

Yoga is a practice that can offer many gifts. The movements and other practices, like mindful breathing and guided meditation, bring stress-relieving benefits, no matter what practice level or time commitment.

If you would like testimonials, please be in touch. I look forward to helping you on your journey with Yoga.

Amanda

She was honored to deepen it with alignment-focused teachers Sue Elkind and Naime Jezzeny and completed Anusara Yoga teacher training with them in 2008 (at Yogaphoria).

About Joshua
I am a tutor who earned a music teaching degree, substitute taught, and didn't become a school teacher. I held professional tech retail jobs and am supplementing my life with my passion - education.

Whatever subject or instrument I teach, I celebrate students' successes; and I enjoy helping learners have new aha moments.

The majority of my students take guitar, bass guitar, or Spanish lessons. I am an educator and help my students learn other skills and knowledge sets too.

I went to Ohio State University for college, earned a BA in Music Education, and graduated Cum Laude. I also spent 4 years in the Ohio State University Marching Band.

Through my healing journey, I've developed patience, insight, and understanding for my students' learning processes.

I'm excited to help you incorporate new skills into your life!

In search of helping our 10 year old son build some self-confidence we sought out clarinet lessons this summer. He started playing in school last year, and it was something our reluctant son liked "enough" to want to build up some competency. Joshua has been amazing! He finds just the right amount of challenge to encourage my son to practice, but not get discouraged. My son looks forward to his lesson each week and told me that he isn't even sure he wants to switch to saxophone next year because he is having so much fun playing the clarinet. Joshua is amazing with children, and has spent time getting to know our kiddo and find out what will work best for him. Patient, calm, and inspiring--very talented instructor.

Joshua Blatman is a fantastic music teacher. He has a great resume, is experienced in a variety of instruments, and a solid background in teaching.
I think any kids lucky enough to learn music from Joshua will have fun and hopefully fall in love with learning it, just like my kids have.

About Jordan
Well Rounded.

That's how I believe every man and woman should become.

Most people put more time in one field and neglect everything else, when they should be efficient in multiple studies.
Being truly brilliant, is being truly knowledgeable overall.

In my life, I gained experience in many different fields and believed that it would be best to share them all with everybody else, and help each individual become someone knowledgeable in many different aspects of life too.
Because you never know, sooner or later, someone may ask for something that only you can help them with!

My son is quickly learning to read and play notes, beats and chords - which was broken down into basics and explained well. I think this will also improve his math understanding.

Jordan was very patient and personable with my son's lesson. It was his first time learning to play his beginner acoustic guitar. Jordan began with the basics, explaining frets, chords, how to pick and precisely tune listening to an online tuner.

The tuning homework exercise was just right for his introduction. He brought along his electric guitar and explained things for us in a way that was easy to understand and pick up. He is looking forward to his lessons.

About William
Hey there. My name is William H. I have been studying martial arts for about 14 years. Most importantly I do not represent any school, style, or person. I'm an instructor, catalyst, and advocate. I do not claim to be a master. Whether you are experienced or not I can without a doubt augment your abilities. I have taught for about nine years. I teach components of various styles. Krav Maga, Muay Thai, Wing Chun, Jujutsu, Western Boxing, and more. I started at Miller's Martial Arts Academy in Kirkland, WA and from a former Israeli Defense Force solider. Additionally, Doug Carducci and other teachers from Sasori Academy MMA. Eastside Martial Arts. Chris Hartman and Armando Diaz; both Muay Thai ring fighters. My father, a practitioner of 40 years of Kyokushinkai Karate and other practices. Tyler king, an independent teacher. James Saeger, for
mer teacher at Z-Ultimate Self Defense Studios. I have also trained at many different schools all around the Northwest.

-Basic footwork, stance, movement, and falling. Blocks, evasions, and interceptions. Counters, throws, and groundwork.

-Option to choose areas of focus, regiment, and class structure to suit your goals/interests.

-Still a core system/regiment option or a mixture. Meaning the choice of, mixing what styles with others, focus on hands, feet, etc, and intensity level of exercise.

Whether you are looking for exercise or self defense training I could cover either and more. Generally effective long lasting self defense capabilities are synonymous with intense exercise and effort. Peace and safety are very important to me. Drills are good and we do them but real fights are usually random and chaotic. I offer training to be better prepared for those scenarios.

Having never done martial arts before I was amazed at how well William explained everything to me in a way I could easily understand. He is well-versed in a variety of forms of martial arts and can individualize the lessons in regards to speed, complexity, and content. This flexibility was really great because I could tell him what I wanted to focus on and he could tailor the lessons to that. For me it is really important to know the how, why, and real-life implications of everything and he can explain all that to me or direct me to pertinent resources that can. William is very passionate about martial arts and is genuinely interested in helping others to develop those skills and I would highly recommend him to anyone!

William has a great attitude and an immense knowledge of martial arts. He is extremely skilled, compassionate, and has a no-ego, non-judgmental approach to his teaching. I recommend this instructor for students both new and experienced. I guarentee he has something to bring to the table to grow you as a person and a martial artist no matter what your background may be.

About Beverly
I am certified as a teacher of English to speakers of other languages (TESOL) and English as a Foreign Language (TEFL). I am also ACE-Certified as a Personal Trainer and Group Fitness Instructor, specialized in Core Fitness, Senior Fitness Training and Functional Fitness. I train clients in their homes and online. Half of my day is dedicated to teaching ESL and the other half to fitness training.

In 2013 I gave up a longstanding career in Logistics and Imports to pursue my passion for fitness and education, and I have not looked back since. I enjoy helping others to learn and expand their horizons through language and movement. One of the reasons I became an ESL instructor is because I wanted to experience culture and diversity. I am truly blessed to have been given this wonderful opportunity to impart my own knowledge while lear

“I've tried to learn English for a long time and, though I learned a big amount of words , I wasn't able of having a short conversation with nobody. Teacher Beverly have been making a great job by identifying my difficulties and then working hard straight on it at abslutely enjoyable online classes. I'm really happy because in a few time I've improved my English skills as I've never did before, nevertheless I'm sure that there are so much to be learnt from her yet.”

Destanee was by far the best personal trainer/fitness instructor I’ve ever worked with. She was very personable, relatable, and outgoing, while at the same time very focused and motivating. She always challenged me, yet knew my limits and never made me feel incapable. Her workouts were always well planned and intentional without losing the element of fun. Destanee has taught me a lot about health and fitness, and I love that she practices what she preaches to her clients. She truly is the best!
