Testimonials

  • I love that I can nurture myself through yoga classes, a special treat like a massage, or a wellness check-up with an acupuncturist. Bloom is one place where I feel like I can take care of myself without compromising my commitment to anyone else.

  • I have longed for a community of women that “get” me. It’s so nice to be a part of the community here and have some awesome women to talk with and who get what you’re going through. My mind is more peaceful when I’m at Bloom.

  • The other day, when my alarm clock blared at 6:00 a.m., instead of thinking, “ugh, another day” or “back to the grind,” I thought “Bloom flow.” After taking yoga classes at Bloom for the past year, I have learned to apply the classroom practice to daily life. Instead of feeling like I’m stuck in a rut, I think of my day as my “flow.” I notice how I am responding to the “flow” today. I notice when I am flexible and accepting, and I appreciate those moments. I notice when I am rigid and resisting, and I breathe into those tight spaces. I am grateful for the ways yoga has expanded my joy, tolerance, and peace.

  • I love yoga, which I never thought I would be able to say! I have taken classes at other places, and the teachers at Bloom are highly skilled. They are very calming, patient, and encouraging. Michelle’s Mindful Flow class is my stress-relief therapy!

  • I was going to Sarah’s core class three days a week and I noticed more toning in my arms and tummy. I love the energy of it and it is efficient use of my time.

  • Michelle’s Morning Yoga Class was truly uplifting. It was so comforting to hear her talk about just slowing down your mind, and not getting so caught up with everything you have to do.

  • Our two babies were being entertained and very well cared for by Bloom’s childcare workers. My 2½ yr old son didn’t want to leave! Both of our kids have a history of high separation anxiety, but to my surprise, in the 1 1/2 hours we were in class, not once were we interrupted. Thank you for bringing such a beautiful wellness center to the East Bay. Every mom in every city needs a Bloom. I will be back, because Bloom has helped me see that I deserve it.

  • I really enjoy the music tastes of the employees, I love the indie, alternative and folk rock I’ve been consistently hearing – very cool. I’m even digging the chanting music in yoga class, and the pop music in the cardio classes – whoa! The whole place has an excellent vibe.

  • Restful, caring, relevant, casual elegance. A brilliant idea, perfectly executed.

  • Bloom is the place I know in the back of my mind is available when everything falls into place. But, more often, it’s the place I want to go when nothing really does. And after I leave there, places and things don’t matter anymore…

  • There’s no place like Bloom. It’s a haven, where we find our “Self,” a creative space, a community, an inspiration, a support, a home away from home, a spiritual practice, a place of self-care. Bloom is LOVE. What do you think of when you think of Love? You will find it at Bloom.
