I wanted to reach out to you to let you know that I don't think I will be able to attend any more classes at Addison Yoga Loft. I finished graduate school at UC Berkeley earlier this month and I just accepted a job offer out of state and my husband and I are moving as soon as possible. I really wanted you to know how much I absolutely love your studio! I have been practicing yoga for 10 years and I have moved a lot in that time and it always takes me a while to find a studio where I really feel at home. In the brief time that I have taken classes at your studio I fell in love with the atmosphere and the teachers. Both Grey and Julie are really phenomenal instructors and teach inspiring classes that offer a perfect combination of body, mind, and breath work. You and the studio are so open and welcoming, I feel like I finally found my yoga space here in Berkeley. I regret that I will not be able to continue to practice at Addison Yoga Loft. I wish you all the best!!
I love Addison Yoga Loft and I wish I was there right now! I have been in Mendocino since the last time I came in for a class. I'll still be coming to Berkeley about once a month and will be coming in for classes when I can. My favorite instructor I think was named Sam. She teaches the lunch hour class on Fridays. Her classes are really wonderful and I hope she will be teaching more at different times. She is one of the best teachers I have taken classes with. I was really enjoying all of the midday classes that I attended but it is sometimes hard to come at that time of day.
Also of note, I am doing a yoga teacher training up here on the coast. The opportunity to work with a really accomplished local instructor popped up. The intensive part is next week and then I'll be studying here (classes and workshops) for the rest of the year. I mention this as I will definitely be returning to the Loft for classes when I can to compliment my studying/training. Taking a lot of different kinds of classes will count toward my growth as a student and teacher :)
I hope things are going well there. We miss you and the space and the teachers and all the great students who congregate there!
