Steve Gold

Owner and Director of Philly Power Yoga & Thrive Pilates

Gold is certified to teach “Baptiste Power Vinyasa Yoga” and continuously studies his craft for advanced techniques to share with his students and instructors. Philly Power Yoga has been teaching Gold’s signature yoga for 10 years, and has now expanded into a full-service facility with a variety of yoga, Pilates and fitness classes, as well as massage and acupuncture services.
 
Philly Power Yoga is not leisure yoga. It is tough, you will sweat. It was developed to identify and correct the pressures the Western world puts on the body. The practice isn’t a fad, it’s a proven lifestyle with the goal of making spiritual fitness an individual’s primary goal.
 
Gold takes pride in his instructor’s primary goal of connecting to students by sharing personal experiences in addition to poses, which allow students to reach spiritual fitness by reconnecting with their authentic self. He trains instructors who are honest, real, and accessible. He teaches that beginning with unhealthy baggage and habits are ok, simply be still in the moment no matter how painful and begin to reconnect with the real you.
 
Gold doesn’t limit his yoga teachings to his studio. His new non-profit, Project 4 Peace, takes his Power Yoga back to his roots in the inner city to teach youth yoga principles that strengthen confidence and self-worth. Gold acknowledges that his own self-value only comes from being in service for others. When not in the studio, Gold is spending time outdoors with his two kids.

Melissa Green is an exemplary, unique, and poised health & wellness professional. Her approach and method is unique regarding how she communicates with clients by personalizing a program specific to the individual. Melissa stresses the importance of leading and maintaining a healthy lifestyle; effectively getting this message across to clients by building a program specific to them and one that allows them to eat the foods that they enjoy without guilt or stress. She emphasizes the importance of eating natural, whole foods, incorporating physical activity, and taking time to nurture one’s relationships to achieve an overall healthy and satisfying lifestyle. I have personally worked with Melissa to improve my eating habits and step up my time at the gym. She guided me toward having well balanced portioned meals, and even led me to broaden my horizons with healthy snacks and deserts that would have never crossed my mind. Melissa also taught me how to create healthy versions of some of my favorite less than healthy foods and encouraged me to splurge every now. The results have been extremely rewarding as I have slimmed down and toned up, while I now eat much better and have an overall better well-being
