Tai is an amazing massage therapist...!!
My partner and I got a Scout Mob deal on massage services at Urban Body Studios, and I scheduled an appointment with Tai, who was one of the massage therapists participating. I figured, since I got him by default, that I shouldn't have any unreal expectations for a great massage. Man, I could not have been more wrong!!

Tai is that rare massage therapist who actually listens to what you tell him, has the skills to put his hands to work, and produces GREAT results. After only three massages, I'm hooked

I work out a lot. I do weight training, and use the machines at my gym to row, bike, and sweat it out on the eliptical. I'm in my 40's, and definitely need help staying balanced with the hard work I put in. I have been to massage therapists many times before, and have finally found someone who can keep me tuned up.

Tai has intuitive, powerful hands, and gets right into those difficult areas with just the right amount of pressure, just pushing right up to the point of pain without ever crossing over the line. I stay in a meditative-like state the whole time he's working on me, and don't even have to give him feedback--he's that GOOD. I am so happy to have stumble upon this wonderful, amazing therapist. I cannot recommend his services enough. Just WOW!!...

Very unprofessional and rude - agree with others
Horrible, horrible, horrible.  If you are a masochist who enjoys being barked at in pilates and yoga, this place is for you.  I especially like how the instructors ask if you have any injuries and then proceed to bark or mock you for modifying poses due to an injury.  Then they come over and crank on you further damaging the injury.  And you get to pay an extravagant price for this service.  If you love egotistical attitudes, th en don't miss Penolope's class.  Shes the leader of the pack.  I have never been at a pilots/ yoga or even boot camp classes where I consistently left p- off.  unfortunately, I am locked in for another month.  Can't wait until it's over !  Then I can go somewhere else.

The exception is Scott who is great with Ashtanga. He understands that yoga is also about e mind and it's connection to the body.

I love the yoga here!
I started going to Urban Body studios for Ashtanga about four months ago. Before Urban Body, I had very little yoga experience and didn't really work out regularly. I started with the Beginner's class and slowly learned the first half of the Primary series. The teacher is very experienced and has a beautiful practice. She is so encouraging, but you can always depend on her to push you to do the best you can. She is very serious about the practice, though, and does encourage people to start with the beginner's class since there is so much to learn. I've improved so much over the past few months that it's amazing. I go regularly- twice a week- and I love the practice so much that I would go every day if the studio offered it. My arms, legs, and core are so much stronger and every night when I leave, I'm so relaxed and centered no matter how I felt when I walked through the door. I would totally recommend Urban Body to everyone- I read through some of the poor reviews and I honestly can't understand what they're even talking about. I think that they must not understand Ashtanga and the way that you always practice the poses in the same order, flowing through them with even breath. That said, I've never experienced anything like what they're complaining about in over four months of regularly going to class.

A Brazilian Point of View of Ashtanga Yoga!
After collecting 80 pounds of baby weight? I?ve decide to go back to exercise. Boy it was hard? discipline was never my strongest. I?ve done the regular stuff (bike, boot camp classes, step machine)? got bored & gave up exercising for a while. Decided to go back, but this time I was searching for a class that could be so powerful that could impact not only my lifestyle but also fill up the gaps caused by this chaotic word we live in? I was so pleased to find the Ashtanga class. I was in the beginner?s class for almost 5 months? and now I?m in the intermediate class? It is a hard class? even harder when English is not your first language?. But the teacher (Lori), presented the challenge so gracefully that I had no choice but to be patience, learn to accept my body and be persistence. Today, I?m, extremely happy with the results; my body & mind changed? I have lean muscles, a better attitude towards life (yoga glow ). :)

Really great ashtanga
I'm not sure what made the two earlier reviewers so negative about their experience with ashtanga at UBS bc I've done ashtanga at several dif studios as I've moved in the past few years and the instructor there is really fantastic.\rThe first class I went to was the 630pm intermediate class, and like the other reviewer, the instructor asked about my experience with ashtanga and told me it was an intermediate class, but it was in no way rude or unwelcoming.\rShe does count to 5 breaths when poses are held but I don't see why anyone would have a problem with that. the teacher makes adjustments and helps everyone get deeper into their poses. The intermediate class moves through the entire primary series. ( I think one of the other reviewers said it only went through like 5 poses? Not true)\rAll of the ashtanga classes are taught by the same woman and are great. I've never been to the beginner ashtanga class but my friend goes and says it's really awesome. \rI just wanted to share my thoughts about the ashtanga there bc the experience I've had there has been really positive and I think it's definitely a great place to try out if you're looking for a good studio.\rI can't really give any review about any of the other classes bc I mainly go to the ashtanga there. ...
