Fred is the type of yoga instructor that makes a student feel comfortable in the studio, whether it is their first class ever, or their hundredth class, but at a new studio. Fred takes a very personal approach to his classroom and makes an effort to know each yogi, old or new, on an individual level. If you are going to participate in one of Fred’s classes, you are not going to show up, sit awkwardly waiting for class to begin, do yoga and leave. You are going to get to know a few things about Fred and several classmates, and you are all going to journey through the class together, as friends. You will leave the studio feeling as though you have formed a small bond with a small community of like-minded people, and you are going to want to return- not just to continue your practice, but to grow that bond and to catch up on the lives and the happenings of your new friends.
I knew from my very first class with Fred that I was hooked. I hadn’t practiced yoga in years and forgotten how much I enjoyed it but more importantly the benefits gained from it. In the 6 short weeks I have been practicing again I have experienced the most incredible results: flexibility, strength (my upper body and core in particular), breathing and most surprisingly, my general approach to life ” LIVING IN THE PRESENT”. I’m averaging about 4-5 classes a week now and feel like I have finally found an exercise that I don’t dread!! I LOVE LOVE LOVE it and can’t say enough of what a difference it has made (and IS) making in my life.
Fred Hoffman is an excellent teacher with an incredibly humorous and peaceful delivery. I even blocked out my entire year for one of his classes on my work schedule! I would recommend Fred to anyone interested in yoga.
Fred is an awesome yoga teacher! He is so dedicated. He has such a love of yoga and of helping each person. A wonderful teacher for the mind and body.
