Reviews for South San Francisco meditation classes

Recent success stories from people in the South San Francisco area.
Camila
Carla is a very qualified professional with a very good vibe! When I took the first class I couldn't breathe properly and I didn't have the strength and focus to perform the postures, however, after Carla's special care and dedication, today I can go beyond what I thought I could and I'm very happy for that. What I like most about her classes is that she is always attentive to my postures and willing to correct them. At the end of the class, I feel peace and determination to continue. 🙏

Casey is my favorite yoga teacher I’ve ever had. She was my teacher when I initially started practicing yoga. I’ve had teachers that have made me feel like I should be able to do something that my body was not yet capable of, but Casey always made every pose so accessible. She gives you options for how to modify the pose, while also coming around to physically help you into the correct position, without it being too much too fast. She has such a cheerful, friendly, and open personality and is wonderful at making everyone feel welcome. I can’t say enough wonderful things about Casey as a yoga instructor.

Haleli has a gentle approach and recognizes that everyone arrives on their mats with different life experiences. She acknowledges our individualities and yet, is able to connect with everyone. Haleli has wonderful energy and you can feel the love she has for yoga. Every class I have taken from her has been enlightening. I have learned so much about myself through each class.
