Level 1 with Halima
Very upbeat and inspiring! The class was a little crowded.
Level 1 with Frank
The format of the class is a little more new-agey than I prefer but the space is beautiful and Frank has such a genuine and gentle personality and adjusts you if you need help. Super relaxing, but a good workout after a hard day at work.
Level 1 with Halima
Challenging for a Level “1” if you’re truly new to yoga maybe fundamentals would be better? But Halima is nice.
Level 1 with Halima
Great direction from the instructor and the studio is well maintained.
Level 1 with Rachel
loved the class! Challenging for a beginner but just the right amount. great instructor - clear directions. great playlist.
Level 1 with Rachel
Class went at a good pace and Rachel was very descriptive in her instruction. I felt like the flow overall could have been a bit more challenging, but it is a level 1 class after all. We did work on a one-legged bridge pose towards the end of class which was a nice addition! I’d definitely take this class again. It was a great way to start the week.
Level 1 with Rachel

Halima's flow is always so well thought out.
Level 1 with Rachel
Beautiful studio and great instructor. Felt like I got a great stretch in without being too intensive. Will definitely be back.
Level 1 with Rachel
It was easy to understand the instructor. Slow paced. Great for beginners!
Level 1 with Rachel
Very sweet and approachable instructor. Pretty good at verbally explaining poses and instructions. However as this is a beginner class, it would be more helpful if she actually demonstrated the poses.
Level 1 with Frank
Great class. Frank is a wonderful instructor.
Level 1 with Halima
Crowded. Too many people
Level 1 with Jessica
Great direction and nice studio
Level 1 with Rachel
Instructor was great. Love this studio, the class itself was packed. A bit too many people.
Level 1 with Karen
The class was a good workout, but it was a lot less focused on mindfulness than fitness. About 2/3 through, the instructor had the whole class re-arrange in the room and attempt a difficult position. It felt unnecessary and broke my focus. With that said, my muscles got worked very hard.
Level 1 with Jessica
A level 1 class isn't what you think it is. It's for adv and beginners alike and Jessica makes it so. It's a great way to remember your alignment and fix your posture to push yourself harder when you do your other classes. Well taught and a great refresher.
Level 1 with Stacey
Great level 1 class! Good instruction & poses
Level 1 with Halima
Halima was a very good instructor, especially for a beginner. Shes supportive and corrects your poses without being condescending. She creates a relaxing environment.
Level 1 with Frank
Please add a level 2 with Frank during the week
