"When I was visiting Naples I was looking for a place to practice yoga and I came across BKS Yoga Studio. I could not be happier with this inspiring place. They have very friendly and capable teachers from Kundalini, Hatha, Vinyasa Flow, Meditation, Restorative and more!"
"Personally, I knew I was guided to BKS Yoga Studio amongst others in Naples the first moment I walked through the door a few months ago. Here, I have been able to improve my practice with a variety of convenient and wonderful classes (Gentle Release, Yin Yoga, Vinyasa All Levels, Transformational Breath and Restorative Bliss...to name a few) and very gifted yoga instructors. My experience at BKS has helped me to heal as I nurture my deeper self and daily practice. BKS is a beautiful studio with a calming, peaceful atmosphere and friendly, caring staff. I highly recommend this gem to yogis everywhere."
"I enjoy BKS Yoga Studio and the friendly reception staff. I especially enjoy DamaDe's Kundalini classes. She is one of the most elegant teachers. I'm 66 years old and after one of her classes I have the vitality of someone 20 years younger. The volume of education and delivery of information is always so professional. She is truly a Gem."
"I went to Julia's class on Monday at 11am, after missing the 9am and was pleasantly surprised. She teaches mindful transitions with respect for the body. Her pace is perfect, assist were consistent and appropriate. Plus, it wasn't too warm in the room. She is concise and to the point without all the babble. She'd been added to the list of my favorite teachers. Well done, Julia."
"BKS is such a beautiful studio, and I personally think it's the best in all of Naples. Marjorie is my favorite yoga instructor. I've taken Restorative Bliss with her among many other classes and the time just passes so fast. I never want class to end. Marjorie has this very peaceful and individual way about her. With her guidance and instruction, I feel especially comfortable and successful in my yoga practice."
"As a beginner to yoga, it was my first time going to an actual yoga studio and I couldn't have asked for a better experience. The instructors are wonderful and talented and the studio is beautiful and calming. Every time I leave I feel like a new woman!"
"BKS offers a great selection of classes and workshops for the beginner or experienced practitioner taught by some of Naples most gifted and accomplished yoga teachers in an open and friendly atmosphere which nurtures a sense of community and a deep and vital connection to the heart of your personal practice."
"The Kundalini classes I have taken from at least 3 different instructors have all been excellent in balancing myself and keeping energetic.
An awakening for myself was a Yin Yoga class taught by Liz as a substitute [for one of the Kundalini classes]. I was never aware of the process before. It answered a lot of my physical needs in a way I could control and make progress. Both the instruction and teaching opened up doors to aide me in progressing easier where I need to be.
Besides all of that, I enjoy how welcomed I feel when I attend classes."
"I really enjoy BKS for several reasons...As a SWFL yogi, I have taken classes at several studios and BKS is my favorite. It's 30 minutes from my home but WORTH IT!
I really love that BKS offers Kundalini Yoga! Dhanwant is amazing. She is so kind and she makes sure we have a fun and satisfying class every time. She pushes us to improve and always offers gentle modifications. her Kundalini class is my favorite. I always feel welcomed there, as she makes sure to get to know each student like a friend.
Also, DamaDe' is incredibly inspirational, and her Gong skills are amazing. Her classes leave you with a great feeling for the rest of the day, and you really get a workout.
Matt is wonderful, such great energy and excellent yoga skills.
The front desk staff knows you by name and are always ready to welcome you when you walk through the door. The studio is clean, and there is a secure area for your belongings..."
"My experience at BKS Yoga Studio exceeded expectations on every level. The instructors are first class and the class offerings are diverse with times to easily suit my schedule. I appreciated the neat and clean studio, and the friendly, helpful support staff. I have recommended BKS to my yoga friends and plan to return to classes there next season."
"This space and studio is like an accent to your everyday life. Meaning, when I go to yoga it enhances every other aspect of my life."
"DamaDe' is a true healer! I completely received a blessing yesterday [at the Gong Bath]. What a wonderful class shared with awesome people of our community."
"This evening I attended the Transformational Breath class with Carrie...WOW! What a powerful class! Great choice of instructor too: Carrie is so grounded, caring and a beautiful being. Thanks for choosing such great and unusual classes that can benefit our physical as well as our mental and emotional health."
"[When I come to Kundalini, DamaDe'] always seems to know exactly what it is I need. I feel happier, fuller and more received. This helps me carry on with my day and family and be more present for them."
"Thai Yoga with Jamie was absolutely the best massage I have ever gotten. It is very difficult for me to raise my right arm straight in the air, but when I was done with my massage, I could raise it a little higher with no discomfort. During my session, I felt the energy and blood flow through my body--it was an amazing feeling! I didn't feel bruised or sore when I left, and I still feel awesome several days later. I can't wait for my next Thai Yoga session with Jamie. Thank you BKS Yoga Studio!"
"I'm vacationing in Naples from Rhode Island for the week and went to a class at BKS Yoga Studio. I immediately felt a warm welcome and the class and instructor were FANTASTIC! Beautiful studio, and I also enjoyed shopping the selection of yoga accessories."
"Monday Candlelight Flow was AMAZING. Seriously, best yoga class I've ever taken. Thank you so much."
"I hesitantly left another Naples yoga studio to try out BKS Yoga Studio. I thought I'd give it a month trial period, and am I ever glad I made the move!! There are various classes throughout the day to serve my needs. I attend Kundalini for breath work and the expert Kundalini teachers help to guide through the clearing of energy blocks in the chakras, leading to a deeper sense of well being and self-knowledge. I also attend the Hatha yoga classes for a more traditional stretch with some pranayama breathing exercises, and a little meditation at the beginning and end. The flow class is more vigorous routine for the extra challenge! Love all the classes, instructors and overall vibe of the studio!"
"...I had a great, GREAT experience at your yoga studio this morning! I had class with Trisha and she was excellent! I say that no because I have a lot of experience and can tell what a good class is but rather because I don't have much experience but she was very clear about directions and very helpful in making suggestions and adjustments. It was very comfortable. I thought she was great and overall it was a fantastic experience. And I bought my first yoga mat too :)"
"Meredith is one of the BEST teachers I have ever worked with! She's very true to the yoga philosophy and teaches students about the benefits of poses and how to be more aware of correct alignment!"
"The best yoga studio in town! Barbara King has a great group of well trained instructors. I have had three so far and am very impressed. So step into the relaxing studio, kick of your flip-flops and breath...it's your time to unwind."
"My wife, who is a yoga fanatic, brought me to Jamie's Kundalini Yoga class. Jamie was very knowledgeable; she told me to keep an open mind and do what i could do, since I am a beginner. I was pleasantly surprised by how well i felt at the end of the class through the use of the various breathing exercises. An added bonus was the powerful gong mediation that Jamie did at the end of class! I thoroughly enjoyed the class and will continue attending classes from now on."
"Matt's Gentle Release class is great! [He] is a GREAT instructor and his Restorative class is amazing too!"
"When I show up every week for Kundalini class with DamaDe' I am supported in every way." 'Keep up and you will be kept up.' is one of my favorite quotes by Yogi Bhajan."
"[I] love Marjorie's Gentle Release class! She's the first teacher [I've had] to do the poses to your position and level making her easier to follow."
"I loved Barbara's class today, I feel really good and energized. Thank you!!!"
"This is a great yoga studio and I had a great instructor. I even got a mango at the end of class!!!! Thank you so much!"
