“After being diagnosed with arthritis in my hips and shoulders in July 2016, I began attending a restorative Pilates/Yoga class twice weekly. During the past year, I’ve noticed significant changes in my 64 year old body! I’ve gained strength, and I sleep better because I no longer suffer from arthritic pain. My choice to make this personal investment in my health continues to be very worthwhile!”

“I’ve been coming to Sukha for 11 weeks. I had never done Yoga or Pilates before, so I was skeptical about how it would work for me. I’m also not the typical body type you see in yoga studios so I was concerned about fitting in. Needless to say I was welcomed with open arms. The instructors are very informed and will help you with your needs, even in group classes. No judgement. In 11 weeks I’ve lost 13.4 pounds and gone down 2 sizes. I’m also off 1 of my 2 blood pressure medications. I am thrilled with the results to say the least. I look forward to going which never happened when I was going to the gym to meet a personal trainer. I can’t thank the Sukha staff enough for all of the encouragement. I highly recommend this studio.”

“I started attending Sukha the beginning of my senior year of high school in 2016. Sukha has been very beneficial towards my dance training since I dance ballet six days a weeks. Sukha has allowed me to cross train by building up small muscles, flexibility, and stamina. I started off taking only the Reformer class but now I also attended the Barre and Pilates class which helps me utilize different muscles. I could see improvement right away in my dance classes and I now feel like a stronger and more graceful dancer. I 100% recommend Sukha to anyone any age! There are a variety of classes offered and every single one is different and worth it. The staff and instructors at Sukha are very welcoming and make you feel relaxed and comfortable. I will be attending UC Santa Barbara this fall and I cant wait to come back to Sukha to visit and take classes when I come home!”

“I started out going to Sukha to better my ballet training through a pilates reformer class in 2016. They are so helpful and welcoming and it is such an amazing environment I have been able to work in. Even when I injured myself, Sukha continued to welcome me to their classes no matter my limitations with a cast or boot on my foot. They provide so much care for their customers and they would even adjust my workouts to what I was capable of. Walking into Sukha you feel so welcomed and valued and there is no other studio quite like it.”– Sara Santa Elena
“I am a senior who recently started Pilates 3 months ago at the fantastic Sukha Yoga & Pilates Studio. The instructors are encouraging & positive, with a diversity of workouts. Pilates has improved my flexibility, and strengthened my posture & core. After a workout I feel energized, happy, and accomplished. Pilates is fun, wish I could do it every day.”

“I wandered into the Sukha studios just as the sign went up, curious as to what they could offer me in the way of rehabilitation, I knew I needed more than a regular exercise studio. Micheala was sure she could help me. She created a special Pilates class for those of us that needed a more restorative practice. She occasionally incorporates yoga and the rope inversion wall into the class as well. I signed up for the unlimited plan; it has been the best money I’ve spent all year. I take 3 classes a week or more. Pilates has given me a new lease on life. All the instructors are knowledgeable, patient, and experienced in modifications for every body and skill level.
The atmosphere at Sukha is friendly and welcoming, an oasis from the stress of the outside world. There are also special events and occasional parties ( complementary champagne and wine ) Don’t just think about it any more, sign up, take a class! You only live once, do something nice for yourself. Join our community.”

“This place is a gem in the heart of Modesto. I have taken such a wide variety of classes here and love them all. Not only is the facility top notch, the instructors are phenomenal and the little store is the cutest! I will admit, after living in San Francisco for 6 years I was worried about the amazing exercise classes I was going to miss out on, but this by far exceeds my expectations of what is available in Modesto. Yay Sukha!”

“My experience at SUKHA has been fun as well as a physical and mental growing experience. In classes I’m working out as well as relaxing.”
– Sofia Martin
“Sukha has changed my life. Michaela, owner and instructor, takes the time to know each of her students and what their needs and goals are. Learning and practicing the mind and body connection truly brings an inner peace to my life and helps me manage the daily stressors. Appreciation for what your body can do for you, yet challenging your mind and body, brings about self-discipline and self-confidence. A combination of yoga, pilates, and now meditation keeps me coming back to Sukha and the place I go to for peace and tranquility. Namaste”

“In 2 years I will be 50 years old…yikes…..….At this point in my life working out in a gym has become laborious not to mention a complete BORE for me…so for the past 3 months [now one year] I have been taking yoga at Sukha Studios at McHenry Village and I have NEVER felt better and more centered…physically and mentally. There are so many different classes to try…all of them offer amazing attributes. There are classes for kids too!…(why not start young?)….So if anyone wants to come and join me…check it out and let me know!”
— Catherine Rhee
“I’ve been doing yoga at Sukha now for 9 months. The owner, staff and instructors are all the very best! I deal with chronic pain from numerous spine surgeries. Doctors at UCSF asked me to try yoga… I got hooked! Yoga has helped me control the pain, and has helped with mobility. I’ve had help from a number of Sukha’s instructors on modifications to alleviate pain on some movements. They are all very well trained and professional. Overall, a very pleasant atmosphere.”

“Last spring I decided to try another yoga class ata new studio. I googled nearby studios and saw an appealing class about 5 minutes away from house. So I signed up and went. I walked into a full studio, the only person who looked overweight and uncoordinated in the room. I was expecting to struggle through the class. To my surprise I was welcomed and supported and encouraged in a way I never expected. I love Sukha and cannot recommend it highly enough.”
