Testimonials

I was specifically looking for a yoga teacher, someone who'd focus on the deeper stretch and the lengthening and flexibility needed in swimming. My workout is in the pool. Gym/yoga workouts didn’t fit my needs--until I found Kamala! Her yoga instruction helped release pulled muscles, strains, and swimmer's shoulder. And she gave me so much more! Kamala emphasized a winner's attitude, focus, goals, breath work, meditation, and the tools to deal with stress before a race. At the National Championships, my relay team won 2nd and 4th places. My coach asked me, "How does it feel to be 2nd fastest in the nation?” Kamala’s expertise helped me believe that I could do it. I'll continue to train with Kamala, building the confidence and skills while aiming for a 1st place. Kamala has given me the mental edge to be #1. She truly works from The Inside Out! Thank you, Kamala.

Working with Kamala has helped me to take a step back so I can observe my actions and reassess the situation and my attitude. Then, instead of getting upset and reacting irrationally, I can focus on the appropriate reaction.

I had three private sessions with Kamala Nellen, primarily to concentrate on posture and specifically shoulder work. I was impressed by the knowledge Kamala has and how easily she could transfer the relevant information...she knew what I needed. After only a short time I could feel the improvement in my shoulders and back. Kamala Nellen is knowledgeable, professional and I highly recommend her.

I think the meditation is working because last night at practice my son hit all the balls pitched to him and hit a home run over the center field fence. Additionally, he did his meditation on the way to the game today and during the game and he was very light on his feet moving from place to place on the field making all the right defensive moves at second base. He was like a butterfly gliding while mentally sharp. He continued the meditation at bat and he hit a double. I could see through the fence he was using his breathing technique.

I decided to work with Kamala because I really struggled mentally last year, and it was suggested that I get a mental coach. She keeps me from over thinking. I am learning to just let things be. She really helped me prioritize my life.

The session with Kamala on communication within the team really helped each of us to understand how everyone on the team feels and how we react to others and different situations. This has come in handy.

He went to the batting cages right after his session with you and my husband said he did extremely well. There were a bunch of parents just watching him in awe. When he was told you said he did well, he said he wasn’t even trying hard to hit the ball, but eyewitnesses say he was hitting very hard and far.

Kamala Nellen has a gift for coaching and training athletes. She took the time to get to know me and the elements of my life. I learned so much from our sessions, and even though I am recovering from surgery, I felt at ease the entire time. She was completely focused on my alignment and technical execution of the exercises. I think that Kamala is highly knowledgeable, and I would recommend that any athlete train with her.

Kamala gave me techniques to use to calm my nerves during my competitions. Her techniques changed how I performed; I did really well at all the competitions that followed my sessions with Kamala.

I have known and worked with Kamala over the past two years, and I feel her work and expertise in yoga is second to none. As the owner of the largest plyometric training company in the country, I am reluctant to refer business to anyone without first seeing the final results. I have personally seen Kamala’s hands-on approach improve my flexibility and, on two occasions, help with ongoing pain in my shoulders and upper back. Kamala is driven by one thing, and that is results.

Kamala provided tremendous help to my daughter, whose nerves were affecting her performances at cheerleading competitions. My daughter learned how to be more focused, centered and confident during high-pressure situations. She was able to feel much more at ease and confident with herself and therefore put on great performances. One thing I found most amazing about Kamala was how much she really cared about helping my daughter. She took an interest in my daughter that went way beyond what I expected. I felt Kamala cared just as much as my daughter and I did about her performances. These techniques will be useful in many aspects of life! Thank you, Kamala!

Kamala Nellen has an immense reservoir of knowledge that she is always happy to share with students. I find she is respectful of my physical limitations and is always looking for creative solutions to help me with these limitations. It is a pleasure taking class from her.

I've been studying yoga for almost ten years, and Kamala Nellen is the best yoga teacher I've ever had. She is knowledgeable, and she gives excellent and intuitive personal attention to each student. I have gained so much understanding from her about the subtle workings of my body and what yoga can do for me. She is a real gem.
