Testimonials from Adults and Kids

I run an annual open air festival with roughly 1000 attendees at every event. We were fortunate to have Maria from Manasa Yoga join us and teach an all level adult and all level kids class at the festival. Maria was very professional, on time, charismatic, easy to work and get along with, and overall a great fit for our festival. We received more positive feedback from festival attendees about her yoga classes than ever before! (Zhenya Sakirski)

Masha really knows her stuff! We worked together on a charity event - she was flexible, accommodating, and professional. Definitely would recommend her for any yoga and/or meditation advice and tips (Mia Littlejohn)!

I love this yoga studio. Masha is very knowledgeable and kind. I feel rejuvenated and at peace after every class (Ana Paula Buono).

This is the best yoga class I’ve ever taken. Masha is an expert in her craft and acclimates the practice based on individual needs. Her energy makes each class powerful, rewarding, and leaves you feeling revived and purified. Every time I leave I look forward to the next time I get to practice with Masha (Floriana Sheykina).

Love this place. Clean, beautiful studio, friendly atmosphere. My child takes yoga classes here for over 5 years (olga prechen).

Masha, Thanks a lot for excellent yoga class. Маша, вдохновила меня на регулярные занятия йогой. Уроки йоги в manasa yoga очень разнообразные и наполнены особой атмосферой. Каждый раз я открываю для себя что-то новое в дыхании, движении, истории йоги. Для меня большую ценность имеет именно общение с учителем и мне очень важно что Маша находит индивидуальный подход к каждому, даёт советы и поддерживает в развитии. Отдельное спасибо за самый уютный зал, в котором я когда-либо занималась (Nelia Marusich).

Love coming to Sunday class every week from 10-1130am! Masha is absolutely amazing and very talented, the studio is clean and beautifully designed and has great energy! I leave feeling rejuvenated every time. Highly recommend! I give it 6 STARS!!! (Mila Tokar).

Had an amazing experience of attending a candle making workshop with kids. An intimate circle for kids any age and parents too. The candle making was great and everyone had fun. Thank you, looking forward to the next workshop (Vicky Golbraykh).

My first Yoga class ever and I loved it! I would come over again! I feel great and full of energy! The price is right too. Thank you, beautiful Yoga teacher! See you soon (Victoria Krugolets).

Rukmini (Masha) will guide you with her energy, dedication and intention to stay focused in the class. Nice clean space and good classes what are you wating for ? The Universe is calling, go take a class :) (Mark Moshchinsky).

Great yoga classes for kids! I've been taking my daughter to Manasa Yoga Classes for Kids for over a year, and we both adore it! Masha is an amazing instructor who teaches kids a variety of yoga tools and techniques that they can take away from yoga class and use throughout their lives. In a fun and interactive way kids learn to stretch. The yoga poses they learn promote flexibility, strength and coordination. Breathing techniques teach focus, relaxation and self-control. After having my daughter take Masha's yoga classes, I noticed her to become less prone to respiratory infections, so I thank Masha for helping my daughter become healthy, strong and confident child. Highly recommended! (Irina Stesin).

I had a chance to teach a yoga class for kids with Manasa. As being new to teaching kids, I've learned a lot from Masha. She's very attentive and intuitive to children. knows how to approach each of them at the class individually and together as a group. Her classes are full of smiles and joy. Kids are happy, teachers are happy, I left the class with a radiant sensation of playfulness, and, of course, love (Marina Grigoryeva).

Kids yoga classes are great! Kids learning how to relax, starting imagination games (I think it is first step to meditation) , unusual exercises, warm atmosphere. son loves classes with Masha! (Liza Slobodyan).

This was a wonderful experience bringing two five year olds for a Sunday yoga class. Girls loved it and didn't want to leave. Thank you for giving our day a positive and relaxed twist (Olia Nikishina).

I love yoga because we get to play a lot of games… We get to stand upside down… We get to do all sorts of fun chants… We also get to do fun partner poses with our friends… I love yoga!!! Yoga is awesome and fun! (Faye, age 9).

Yoga is very fun.  I love the poses that we do.  The chants make me feel relaxed.  This place is the place where I get to see almost all of my friends in one place (Margaret, age 11). 

I like yoga because I like to learn.  I like yoga because I like doing a headstand.  I like yoga because I like moving my body (Erica, age 7).

Yoga class is very fun and exciting.  We learn a lot of things like yoga poses, games, and chants.  It is good for your spine and lungs.  Yoga is also very relaxing and calming (Victoria, age 10).

What I like about the class is that you get to express your feelings in a pose.  Also, I like having my friends with me.  Yoga is the best! (Natalie, age 8).
