    "I've been taking classes here for a week now, enjoying Square One's incredible new member deal, and have only positive things to say. The space is gorgeous, the people present, knowledgeable, and compassionate, and the classes are accessible and well-varied. There is something for everyone. Because I have experienced some fairly terrible yoga instructors in the past, it has been difficult to get back into my practice. But the classes I've taken here so far are wonderful and I feel like I can finally comfortably bring myself back into yoga. 5/5 stars, this is the place to be."

    "Lauren Bannister is amazing! She teaches such a great, grounding, and yet challenging class. And she makes it so fun! Their website doesn't list when their teachers are teaching (at least I don't think it does) but I would highly recommend checking her classes out. You'll be glad you did."

    "I am a fan. I was looking for a local yoga studio since my recent move to San Leandro and I have found my yoga home at Square One. I've taken Vinyasa flow and slow flow with Vita and she is a great instructor! She's very energetic but calm at the same time and doesn't babble throughout the class like some instructors I've encountered back at home in Los Angeles. The classes are challenging and invigorating. I'm looking forward to more classes. Tip: they offer a 30-day class package for 30 USD for new students. What a great deal!"

    "I've done yoga at a community college, in conference rooms at work, at expensive and slum gyms, but there's something special about Square One Yoga. It's such a nurturing, peaceful, open-spaced studio with lots of diversity, and something for beginners and advanced yogis and the in-between. It's also very affordable. So, I'm just going to go ahead and say it: I am a high anxiety individual. For example, I'm the kind of girl who used to read ahead in my books at school, so by the time it was my turn to read out loud, I wasn't in for any surprises or words I couldn't pronounce. Fast-forward to an older, more stressed out version of that girl, and basically I have recently discovered that I need yoga just so I can be a normal, functioning adult who can better embrace my mistakes and humanity.I also need yoga to undo all the damage I'm doing to my body by having an office job. You don't even realize how cranky your hips and shoulders are until you're transitioning from pose to pose. After just a couple weeks, I can absolutely feel a difference. I'm still early in my practice, and not the most flexible or balanced person, but I've really been enjoying my time at Square One Yoga - being more connected and spiritual than I've ever been in my life. My favorite is the slow flow classes in the mornings. It's just such a great way to wake up your body, and keeps me very energized through the day. For more of a challenge, I've taken evening classes. Of course you can modify all the poses, but it's a great opportunity to see where focus, flexibility, and commitment can eventually take you. I'm really excited to learn more from the kind and talented Square One Yoga instructors, who always make you feel like you belong, and that if you have any concerns or physical boundaries, you're heard and supported."
