Up until a few days ago.. the only yoga experience I had had was horrible. At another studio.. I had gone to a class that was supposedly meant for "beginners". I left the class literally feeling nauseous.. the instructor had not helped in any way.. did not explain any of the poses.. and the room was heated. Being such a newbie to yoga.. I assumed this was how they all were. It was stressful and harsh on my body and I left feeling horrible. My experience at Corepower has been the exact opposite. Upon arrival, Daniel was super friendly.. and even though the front desk was super busy and he was training someone.. he still took the time to pull me aside and explain everything to set me up for my week trial. In class, I felt like everything was explained beautifully. I felt supported and guided in a way that still allowed for me to be me. I never thought I would come back to the mat after my first experience, but something pulled me to try again and I'm so incredibly greatful I did. Daniel is truly an asset to your establishment. It's intimidating to walk into a yoga studio.. especially with all the crazy posts on social media.. with people doing backbends with their legs by their chins.. Daniel made me feel comfortable and now I'm hooked! Already after just a few days I can feel my body gaining strength and energy that I haven't felt within other activities. Thank you Corepower and Thank you Daniel.
I love how all the instructors make it a point to address you by name. I moved to CorePower from a huge gym where I was just one of many and often shuffled around unnoticed. I wanted something different and I found that at CorePower North Boulder. At my very first class, I met Derise and she immediately made me feel like I was a part of a family by addressing me by my name every time she saw me. Other instructors have done the same. Just that small thing of calling me by my name, makes me feel like I belong, like I'm an important member and not just an invisible shuffling around. Besides that, the instructors are just amazing. Denise, Sasha and Raj are my favorites, but I still have so many to try.
