"Mark is insightful, sensitive and meticulous. Since working with Mark I've never felt physically better or more centered. he's so gifted and a real pro, making sure each yoga pose is in perfect alignment rather than a mad rush to result. I recommend him highly for his humanity, caring focus, and -- yes, terrific sense of humor"

Garry Shandling - Comedian, Writer, Actor

"Mark is a fabulous yoga instructor. He manages to be both detail-oriented--making sure that each pose is perfectly explained--and aware of mind and spirit. All this transpires with a gentleness and good humor that make every practice a special occasion. Thanks, Mark!"

ark is my all-time favorite LA yoga instructor. I combed central LA looking for a truly great teacher (ie. one worth paying LA yoga prices for), and Mark was the only one that fit the bill for me. He is incredibly knowledgeable about physiology, and instructs students on the proper form for each and every pose. I would highly recommend him to both beginners and advanced students; as he is a highly individual-focused instructor you will never feel lost, even in a large class. I've since moved out of LA, but I still employ all that he taught me about form in my private practice and with other (less competent) yoga instructors. I also strongly agree with Janet's statement about Mark's gift for balancing precision and mind/body awareness."
