Student Testimonials at Shakti Vinyasa Yoga in Seattle & Bellevue, WA



"I LOVED my first visit to Shakti yoga. It was actually my first ever yoga class. I was so nervous about doing something wrong or not fitting in or obviously looking like a complete newbie. Everyone was wonderful. I loved the community aspect of the class, that we were encouraged to meet other classmates and get to know them, it really provided a feel of bonding, like I wasn't in this alone, we were all in it together. The instructor went slowly enough for me to follow along and the assistant was terrific at showing the poses. I also liked the explanations behind what we were doing. I felt so refreshed when I left, body and spirit. Thank you so much."

Christine S.; May 2014 - Beyond Basics Workshop Feedback with Zak Endicott



"I had a fantastic first time experience! I thought the instructor and the two assistants were wonderful too! Great personalities that create a very friendly environment. The instructor was thoughtful, patient, kind, very encouraging and approachable. The assistants were the same and their “hands on” coaching/guidance was also very helpful too! Thank you for making such a great first time experience for me and my daughter!

P.S. I also thought the front desk person was exceptional in her personality too. She was very patient, kind and friendly despite the long “check in” line and limited time before the class started. Every touch point with everyone was excellent! It’s not surprising to me that you receive such positive word of mouth marketing from others that have experienced your studio!"
