8/10/13 – Darcy, I wanted you to know that your classes, your words, and inspiration have helped me through a difficult journey. You are one of the many angels who has touched my life along the way and I am very grateful for that, and you. Please know that your classes, Chagrin Yoga and YOU are touching many lives. – C
9/5/13 – Darcy, Over the past couple of months, I’ve had the opportunity to practice at a few different yoga studios. I have to say my experience with them does not compare to mine at Chagrin Yoga. There is something special about Chagrin Yoga – from the front desk to the classroom – I have never felt like a dollar sign to you or your staff. This balance of running a business without making others feel this way is difficult to achieve. I see your spirit of kindness throughout every aspect of Chagrin Yoga. Thank you for letting me be a part of the Chagrin Yoga family. My life has been changed by my experiences here and I am forever grateful! – S.M.
3/6/13 – Chagrin Yoga is both the most challenging and welcoming place I’ve ever been to. I started practicing yoga there and went onto Teacher Training – can’t even imagine how different everything would be if I’d never walked through those doors. – J.H.
2/13/13 – I wanted to send a note of gratitude. I’ve been coming to Chagrin Yoga for a few months now. Yesterday, I was in Maribeth’s Vinyasa Flow class and I grew to a state of purity that brought me to tears that I had to fight back so I could continue my practice. I have been working on my inversions, particularly my headstand. Yesterday, Maribeth spent the time to help me perfect the stance and I was able to stay inverted the longest time yet, really focusing on my breathing. It was my first yoga class where I really understood the peace the marriage of breath and movement brings. So, thank you. – N.K.
3/24/12 – Love it. The more I go the better I enjoy it. And I am pretty new to yoga. Plus my son has a class at the same time. – C.H.
2/6/12 – Best yoga studio in Cleveland area, hands down! – J.M.
1/25/12 – Great dedicated Yoga instructors with many convenient class times. First detox class yesterday was great! Very informative and a huge support group! – S.U.
12/13/11 – I have been practicing yoga for a year. Running on the treadmill caused multiple bursas on my right hip, I had chronic pain in my heels from plantar fasciitis as well as back pain from scoliosis. These issues led me to the low impact work out and stretching that yoga offers. I began with a hot fusion class and switched to Brian’s Bikram class 5 months later. It is by far the best work out I have ever done and I no longer have pain in my heels, back and no more hip bursas!! However, what I did not realize was the great effect practicing Bikram Yoga would have on my spine; I have grown an inch and a half in height from strengthening and straightening out my spine!! I hope others will experience similar healing results that Bikram offers! Thank you Brian & Chagrin Yoga! - Carla
11/16/11 – I was diagnosed with Truncal Lymphedema on my left upper body arm in April 2011. This condition is caused by the breast cancer treatment. I thought I could never practice any yoga poses anymore (since I could not put any weight on my upper left side at all). I was going to different certified lymph massage therapists 2-3 times per week, but the pain kept coming back within 24 hours. I decided to try Brian’s Bikram Style Hot Yoga class, even though the heat concerns me (heat could cause the buildup of the lymph fluid on my left arm and left trunk). But, I decided to try it anyway and find out how I felt afterwards. Amazingly, I felt better after the first class. It felt like my left arm was stretched and redirected the lymph fluid to move to the other working lymph nodes. The class does not require much of upper body strength. After taking Brian’s classes regularly for the last 4 months, I have not put on my “lymphedema sleeve” for my left arm anymore on a daily basis. I have taken Brian’s Bikram Style Hot Yoga class 2-3 times per week since mid-July 2011. I just want to thank Brian and Chagrin Yoga for making this class available to me and hopefully more people will experience the benefits of taking the “Bikram” style class. – Rani
6/17/11 – What an amazing life altering experience! I recently graduated from Chagrin Yoga’s first 200 Level Teacher Training. Intense, nurturing, challenging, and mind opening! Teachers with open arms and students with welcoming smiles; Darcy & Robin (the owners) have blended the best of the best. Walking into Chagrin Yoga feels like coming home. – Sherry
6/8/11 – What an amazing place! I started taking classes at Chagrin Yoga about a year ago and instantly felt the love and positive energy as I walked in the door. The owners, Darcy and Robin, are open and welcoming and get to know each student and the community. I’ve grown so much being a part of this studio! I crave being there and enjoy every class from the power to the gentle slower ones, to the fact that I get to practice more often by having my kids go to their own yoga classes at the studio while I take my class!
6/5/11 – Chagrin Yoga is community!! I love teaching and practicing in this beautiful space. The teachers and staff are knowledgeable and passionate about sharing yoga and providing a safe, non-judgemental environment for all who walk through the door. The students are amazing, fun and open to exploring their practice. An extensive class schedule offers something for everyone. – Melissa
6/4/11 – Chagrin Yoga provides a wonderful atmosphere with an even better staff of instructors. An eco-friendly studio with a range of different classes and times allowed for me to work around my schedule while still enjoying the union of yoga.
6/3/11 – Chagrin Yoga has become my treat for myself every week as a busy working mom. The instructors are phenomenal, kind, and push you to be your very best self inside and out. Bikram is amazing and is my new addiction. And Power Vinyasa is challenging and fun! I love this studio! – Beth
6/2/11 – There is no place like “Ohm”… and Robin and Darcy have done a tremendous job building this amazing studio. They offer a huge selection of class styles and times to choose from taught by a variety of gifted, compassionate teachers. There are alot of yoga studios in northeastern Ohio, but at Chagrin Yoga the staff and students are genuinely open-hearted and non-judgemental (even outside of the classroom)! From the moment you walk in the door you will feel at home. I’m so grateful to be a part of this community.
6/1/11 – I started going to classes at Chagrin Yoga last November and was amazed! Not only is the environment comfortable but with so many great teachers, I have learned a new way of moving and simply breathing that has changed my approach to so many different things in my life. I highly recommend any of Chagrin Yoga’s classes; all of the instructors are simply wonderful people who are more than willing to share their love of yoga with others!
5/26/11 – Chagrin Yoga is hands down my favorite Yoga studio in Cleveland. Everyone there… the owners, the talented instructors and even fellow students are FRIENDLY and welcoming and warm. The studios are clean and comfortable (the Sage Studio has an amazing heating/humidity system and the floor is padded!) and the teachers are encouraging and non-judgmental… it’s the perfect combination of all things a yoga studio should be. Both beginners and advanced Yogis feel welcome and challenged there. I wish I could go every day!
11/5/10 – So happy you are here…adore the studio and am thrilled that Bikram has finally found it’s way to Cleveland! Thank you for hosting! – K. Drcar
9/23/10 – Love the new sage studio & excited Bikram is offered in the area again. – L. Hosmer
9/10/10 – I just wanted to drop a quick note to thank Chagrin Yoga, especially Erin, for a great experience in the prenatal yoga class. Erin’s class was one of my favorite parts of being pregnant. I am home now with my new son, Samuel and looking forward to more classes at your studio in the future! Thanks so much. – J. Spencer
6/10/10 – Just a big thanks for the session this morning! The special attention, oils and massage was awesome and heavenly! My body and spirit thank you. I may just become a vinyasa flow groupie! – C. Jackson
6/7/10 – I wanted to tell you that I went to Melanie’s class yesterday at 2 and it was my first time in her class. It was an EXCELLENT class and I walked away in such a peaceful state of mind! She led us through a peaceful buildup, her voice was soothing and encouraging, then she turned on some pumping music and we flowed to that until we were all dripping with sweat and ready to drop, then we did an inversion and then 4 bridge/wheels (she helped me with both of these) and ended with a peaceful cool down again. Seriously, she is amazing – I wish she taught more classes there! – M. Taylor
5/13/10 – Maribeth, I just wanted to let you know that I really enjoyed my practice with you the last two sessions – thank you so much! – P. Puliafico
