Zaanti has had several 'Yelp' testimonials but due their "Review Filter" process many have
not made the cut and so I share them with you here:
I have had the pleasure of working out with Will for one year and I highly recommend him. I was about to give up on yoga before I met Will, I usually got bored and my mind started to wonder. Will makes me work hard but also helps me find my inner peace.I have more strength and focus after my session. I must admit that I have never seen more of a change in my body since I have been working with Will. My friends and family notice my arms are leaner, actually my entire body has leaned out. I am so happy I didn't give up on Yoga and found Will! -Franice E. LES, NYC, Dentist
I have been working with Will for about 5 months now and it has been a true physical and emotional adventure! I was a bit nervous and hesitant to start yoga being under the impression that it was slow and frankly a bit too boring for my competitive, type-A personality....Will taught me otherwise! Not only do I feel in a significantly better physical state but I find myself unexpectedly strengthening my mental state (which I was stubborn enough to believe needed no strengthening!). I fundamentally believe that Will has played a huge part in this with his patient and kind spirit.....but also firm enough to not let me off the hook when I want to give up. Quite frankly his teaching also has given me great confidence to go to any yoga class at any studio when I travel so I can continue my practice even when not in NY and unable to go to him. His flexibility for a crazy work schedule was crucial for me, and I would recommend him to anyone! -Jane N., NYC, Exec. VP AmEx
I had the distinct pleasure of working with Will Schnieder in Nigeria. He generously offered his talent and wisdom, and lead a group of us through his morning yoga routine. He truly seems to be teaching yoga to help make the world a better place, one person at a time. And he teaches the best way possible, by example. With nothing more than the necessary guidance, he allows his students to find their own balance, their own way, and in doing so helps them develop into self-sufficient, confident practitioners. Most importantly, Will makes the practice fun, which makes you want to wake up and do it again the next morning. Will has a gift, and anyone would be most fortunate to work with him and be exposed to his knowledge, skill, and loving energy. -Ned L. Los Angeles, CA, Actor/Teacher
Will, will make you laugh as you explore your yoga. Reliable, determined and focused on his clients. Will teaches a yoga that's accessible to all.

Not only do you get a powerful vinyasa flow from Will's class, but he knows exactly how to make you feel empowered to keep going when you feel like your body wants to give up. An intuitive teacher with a big smile and even bigger heart, he helps your practice grow with each vinyasa and inspires you to challenge yourself to become the person you wish to be. An awesome teacher, hands down! -Desiree P., NYC, Student/Yoga Teacher
I received a package of Will's services last month as a unique birthday gift. I hadn't practiced yoga since college more than 30 years ago and as the owner of a body that's not nearly as fit and strong as it once was, I was initially a bit nervous and uncertain as to what to expect from my new yoga experience. From the moment he turned up at my apt for our first session several weeks ago, Will immediately put my mind at ease. This was going to be our practice together, Will assured me, which he would guide for me at a pace reflective of my own goals and abilities. My body felt unbalanced and clumsy throughout our first session, but instead of focusing on my frustration, Will showed me how to breathe and how Yoga, through my own breathe and steady practice, would help me to become both stronger and more flexible. I felt for the first time in Will's steady hand a purposeful and reassuring touch, as he would assist me in adjusting aspects of my alignment and positioning while clearly explaining the purpose and the scope of each specific pose. Instead of being overwhelmed by information and awkwardness, I felt myself just going along with the process, being eased into knowledge and breathing. Somewhere along the way I lost track of time and by the end of the first session I didn't know exactly what we'd accomplished yet I knew I felt different. I was calmer and more relaxed and in my heart (and my body) i knew already that Will had helped me accomplish a lot. By the second session, little things began to "click" and with that tiny bit of extra flow, I was hooked. Tomorrow I'm about to have my 7th practice with Will and I look forward to it simply because I like the place where it takes me. Yoga is a means to real personal improvement over time. It's a gradual, steady, natural way to feel better in and about oneself. I've discovered that between sessions, bits of guidance that Will has given me will spring to mind from time to time. Suddenly there I am on the street corner waiting at a stop light, focusing on breathing deeply, relaxing my shoulders, changing my posture and along with, my attitude. WOW! Will Schneider Zaanti Private Yoga is my new secret weapon. Will's a great teacher and a great human being. Do yourself a favor, call Will and make an appointment now!

Namaste, I found Will's incredible ability as a teacher--the thing that makes him masterful--is his storytelling. His sense of picturing just the right image or life story as he worked me thru each pose was profound. It made an hour of effort an experience. And fun! And it was an awesome work-out. Enjoy it!
