Tobi Acklen

Mindfulness-Based Counselor

My approach to healing the mind, body, and spirit is through working in the present moment and helping clients uncover their habitual responses which keep them from being their authentic selves.

Tobi is an amazing instructor! I always feel like I am being pushed, but in a healthy and fulfilling way. She definitely knows how to cater to any needs you may have and has a lot of insight into not just yoga but life. An amazing person and an amazing instructor. Definitely recommend her to everyone!
Since I've begun taking Yoga with Tobi, I've noticed some MAJOR changes in my life. Firstly, I've noticed changes in my body shape and muscle tone. I was never one to try and bulk up and look like a meathead, but I was always unhappy with my inability to really develop muscle tone. Yoga has given me a major improvement in that area, and that's thanks to Tobi's help! Taking instruction from Tobi in one-on-one settings allows me to tell her what areas I want to work on and she structures the lesson around the results I want to see. In the 4 months I've been taking lessons with Tobi, I've really toned up (much to the delight of my girlfriend), something which I was never able to do when I worked out in the gym on my own. She is patient with her students, while at the same time pushing them to accomplish the Yoga-goals they desire. I've noticed a number of major changes mentally as well. Tobi does a great job at helping me to clear my mind while I practice Yoga, and the calmness that I achieve when practicing with her is something that I now carry with me throughout the rest of the week. With a clear mind, I am more able to tackle the issues/problems I come across in my personal and professional life far more effectively - again thanks to Tobi's training! I rarely write Yelp reviews, but I cannot be more enthusiastic about recommending Tobi's services. If you're a novice looking to start learning yoga in a non-intimidating classroom setting or just simply don't have time to abide by the schedules of the classes in your area, Tobi does a fantastic time at making her self available to work around YOUR schedule, which is fantastic!
If you're feeling like you need some mental and physical strength and balance go see Tobi. Her classes are the best. She is great about explaining different levels of difficulty for each pose so you are as challenged as you want to be. She is great about keeping an eye on and correcting your postures during class without it being distracting. She also offers private sessions if you want a more personalized experience! I like getting a private session at least every now and then so I can work on something specific and then apply what she's taught me when I take a class.

I love my private lessons with Tobi! I see her about twice a week and each session is different from the last. Her instructions are really helpful, she is very knowledgable about yoga and how it lands in the body, and I always leave our sessions feeling energized and relaxed at the same time. I don't know how she does it, but whatever she does it's working! I highly recommend her to anyone who is just starting out or is an experienced yogi. This girl has an energy like you wouldn't believe and it's a privilege to work with her!
