What People Say About Wellness By All Means
Manojji’s yoga class is exercise from head to toe…literally. His classes will teach you how to relax as well as invigorate both your mind and body through breathing exercises, stretching, and strengthening. He has a very friendly and gentle demeanor that is evident in the atmosphere for his classes. The classes themselves are unintimidating with a relaxed environment. We work hard and challenge our bodies in class, while still laughing and enjoying ourselves. I really enjoy attending these classes and am already reaping the benefits.
Manoj follows a similar format for all of his classes.This helps to make the newcomer to yoga feel at home after only a class or two. He starts slowly, encouraging us to connect the mind, body, and breath.He gradually moves on to more challenging postures, encouraging students to let their own bodies determine what level of participation is best for them.It has been very exciting for me to find my strength, endurance, flexibility, and confidence gradually increase over time through the repetition of postures previously taught. Yet,one class is never exactly like the one before, or the one after. Each brings its own challenges and surprises while offering a certain measure of comfort and relaxation.
I cannot say enough good things about Manoj Joshi. I went to his 21 day boot camp that used to start at 5:00AM. A two hour boot camp passed by quick as Manoj kept it moving and interesting. We did the most difficult asans with ease under his guidance. If you let him know you have any aches and pains or ailments Manoj spends extra time with you and guides you through some poses that will help you. My sister was visiting me from India and commented that she had not seen yoga instructors in India teach as patiently and as well as Manoji. The rejuvination you feel after a session with Manoj is exhilarating. HIGHLY RECOMMEND MANOJ!!!!!
This yoga bootcamp was an amazing, life changing experience for me. It helped reduce stress, tone and built strength. Above all it has created a mindfulness to go about my work day and my family with a calm mind, kind heart and a healthy body.
