Here's what a few our clients have to say about Yoga Centered:
"Yoga, in and of itself is a beautiful practice and as I have personally found, an incredible key to unlock the amazing potential for positive change within oneself. Practicing at Yoga Centered if I may say, blew my mind to places previously not blown too. I surrendered myself to yoga at Yoga Centered, during a time in my life marked by a kind of negative apathy, where not too many things seemed to be going my way. Moderate harassment from a close friend led me to Yoga Centered and increasingly more beautiful practice sessions have kept me coming back multiple times a day.
While I have only been practicing for a few months, I've found the benefits of my practice to be incredible. Physically, my posture and body alignment has improved, I feel alert and responsive, stronger, and in better health. I also have clearer thinking and am able to handle stress more comfortably with great thanks to the increased self-confidence and self-awareness that my practice here has gifted me with."

"I started practicing at Yoga centered when it first opened its doors, 9 years ago! My favorite thing about yoga is the difference I feel when I begin class vs. how I feel after. My body feels strong, worked and flexible. I like to sweat out the toxins and just feel a natural well being, sort of a high. I think it's important to take time out for myself, come back into the present and forget about the outside world.
I love going to Yoga centered, I can hardly wait to get there every day. It's like taking a deep breath of relief when I step in the door. I always know that whoever's class I take, it will be perfect, all the instructors are unique in their own style, it's a good diversity. I love the ambiance of Yoga Centered, it's not only a beautiful space, it's full of beautiful people of all sorts, we are one big happy family, bonding in an amazing experience. I cannot imagine life without yoga!! I was hooked on my very first class and plan to continue to have it be a priority in my life, forever."

I went to my first yoga class in 1971 at UH Manoa at the Andrews Amphitheatre and have been practicing yoga on my own (mostly doing stretches learned here and there from various teachers) but not really seriously or formally. I started practicing yoga at Yoga Centered almost 3 years ago.
I love how my mind feels after doing yoga, calm and rejuvenated; and I love seeing the progression/improvement in what my body can do over time, feeling stronger and seeing it overall shaping up. My favorite thing about Yoga Centered are the awesome instructors, the fellowship with the other yoginis, and the flexible class schedule offered 7 days a week! I have arthritis and osteoporosis, and I used to take Celebrex for the pain and Actonel for bone density but the risks (heart attack and side effects) were pretty bad so I decided to just take low dose aspirin and stop taking my Actonel. Practicing yoga has helped in pain management, as I have NO pain in my fingers, back, hips and knees. My doctor said that my osteoporosis hasn't worsened. I have lost 10 pounds, dropped a dress size, inches off, eat more mindfully, and best of all, am so much nicer to my kids. I try not to scream and yell as it doesn't feel right anymore. The breathing has totally helped me stay calm in almost all situations. I do class presentations to high schooler's (sometimes 40-60 kids) and I'm more calm. The physical and mental benefits keep me coming back!
