Verve for Life is so much more than a gym, a yoga studio, or a place for physiotherapy. It's a community of like-minded people. The genuine passion and energy staff at Verve have for helping others to improve their health and wellbeing, is infectious.
I attend regular yoga classes at Verve and cannot speak highly enough of Claire, Amy, Rachael and Sophie. They live their practice and give so much of themselves in every class. Classes are always conducted in a safe and fun manner and cater to all levels of ability. They are also wonderfully varied. I don't think I have ever done the exact same sequence twice!
All of the yoga instructors go the extra mile to teach not just Asana, but the practice of yoga holistically. I like that Amy sometimes incorporates principles of Ayurveda into our practice and that Claire uses her physiotherapy background to deepen our understanding of Asana.
Attending yoga classes at Verve is changing me in ways I didn't expect. I think I am a better parent, writer - and person - because of it.
I hope all of the staff at Verve realise how much of a difference they make to so many people's lives directly and indirectly-each and every day.
I take part in both yoga and small fitness classes at Verve and I cannot speak highly enough of all the staff, they create such a wonderful atmosphere and make Verve a great place to attend. I like the holistic approach they take to health and fitness and I totally enjoy my time at Verve.
I began my yoga journey with Claire from Verve for Life some 3 years ago in a small class environment of a handful of people. With the constant sharing of knowledge, motivation and love from Claire and her instructors I have experienced amazing changes in my body and all areas of my life. Yoga does change your life!!
I am blessed to be involved in the journey of continual growth of Verve for Life and its dedication to the health and wellbeing of others.
A heartfelt thank you to the VFL Team and its Establishment of Love
Claire and Nathan and the Verve team.
Claire thank you for your infectious spiritual energy, humour and laughter that fills the Verve for Life studio. Your patience and perseverance is greatly appreciated by all.
How do you put up with the customary groans from your students when you tell us quote " you are all such a strong group''? Is it that we realise that the immediate journey ahead requires substantial muscle, mind and body movement?
Nathan, Sam, Leah and Fiona thank you for returning Geoff's 6 pack I knew we just misplaced it! What separates Verve from the others is a strong genuine strong commitment to their clients, encouraging us all to make educated informed decisions holistically on ourselves. Namaste
Tanya and Geoff Sawyer
Verve for life has helped to realise my goals and have helped me with a plan to achieve it!!!
I had always planned to attend a yoga retreat. Since coming to yoga at Verve I experience my 'yoga retreat' at every class I attend. Plus the bonus of new Yogi friends and inspiring instructors.
My yoga journey began at Verve in 2010 and since then I have become stronger, leaner and more flexible with improved mental and physical wellbeing.
Classes are a great mix of fun and hard work with each of the instructors providing support and motivation to help me challenge myself within the scope of my body's limitations.
Yoga has given me a sense of balance in my life that enables me to deal with everyday pressures and I am most grateful to Claire and the team for their inspiration, enthusiasm and continued guidance on my journey.
My journey started in September 2011. It was the end of the soccer season and instead of feeling fit I was carrying more weight than I ever had. My wife Joanne was already using Verve's services and suggested I try out their Urban Challenge. I found these sessions so much fun with every week presenting new challenges which saw me kick-start my initial weight loss and down the road to a fitter and healthier lifestyle.
As my 'addiction' to fitness was now well and truly firing – I looked for more challenges and found Verve's SGPT was the perfect fit. The guidance and knowledge of the Verve trainers has seen me continually set and exceed goals that I simply never thought possible. In addition the support and camaraderie between the training teams is truly unique and only enhances the Verve experience.
Due to the increased frequency and intensity of my training it was recommended that I include yoga in my training regime. At first I was sceptical as to me yoga was not a "blokey" thing to do. I was surprised at how well my body responded to yoga. Through solid instruction I have seen significant improvements in my training through greater mobility, strength and flexibility and also an overall awareness of my body.
I cannot speak highly enough of the Verve 'family' and what a change they have made to me physically, mentally and to my overall wellbeing.
I would not hesitate to recommend any of Verve's services to anyone. BTW - VERVE ROCKS!
Constant physio visits are now a thing of the past since doing yoga on a regular basis for the past 12 months. I have found that back & shoulder problems are under control even though I am doing more physical activity including Small Group Personal Training at Verve. All the staff are fantastic and have a genuine interest in patients and clients outcomes.
There is a great atmosphere at Verve and we have made some great new friends through small group training. For my family the training, support and advice have become an important part of all our lives.
The best part for me is being pain free, setting goals and being able to improve my overall health and fitness. Having the family training in such a motivational environment has also resulted in positive changes to their diet, training and lifestyle.
Thanks Verve - you guys are awesome.
My husband and I joined Verve twelve months ago mainly because we were looking for a venue to exercise that was different to your typical gym. The Verve small PT classes were an attractive option for us and we liked the concept that the trainers were there to correct technique and encourage us all the way.
Our first experience was Nathan's Thursday night "Hard and Fast" class ( yep we survived) From the moment we stepped into Verve we were welcomed by the regular members and made to feel like one of the team. We were only planning to do just the Thursday night class for 6 months but we were soon hooked and decided to buy a 6 month membership. Needless to say , here we are twelve months later attending classes almost everyday.
We have both lost a considerable amount of weight, made some wonderful new friends and building stronger bodies everyday. We truly enjoy every minute of it(excluding Burpees, they always suck).
Verve has great trainers and the staff are always friendly and professional.
The best thing about Verve is that you feel like you are part of a big family.
When the staff at Verve for Life say to you 'you become part of the verve family' it is absolutely true. I joined VFL at the insistence of my wife Katryna and at the time I was going through a real life crossroads, getting older, slower and fatter. Not being a real gym person, I reluctantly hauled myself along. To my surprise (after several sessions) I really started enjoying the structure and upbeat nature of the small group training. I've since extended my training to several sessions a week and have never been stronger or fitter.
After this experience, both of us enjoy regular sessions of small group training and yoga each week and have never been happier. Whether it is exercise to feel good about yourself or to push yourself to levels of fitness you never thought possible, Verve for Life is the place to be.
