Matthew is a master teacher who has a rare capacity to reach people exactly where they are, whether they are beginners or long-time practitioners.

Matthew is without a doubt, the real deal.
Celeste Young

“I’ve never before seen such a drastic shift both physical and mental.”

When I began practicing yoga with Matthew eight years ago, as a dancer, I believed that I was fairly in-tune with my body. However, after my first two weeks of classes with Matthew, I felt like a completely different person. I’ve never before seen such a drastic shift both physical and mental. The Sacred Energy Arts method has been revolutionary for me.
Jesse Holcomb

“Working with such an extraordinary teacher is a privilege and a blessing.”

For years I suffered from chronic back pain and couldn’t do even the simplest core exercises in other classes. Matthew helped me build a core strengthening practice that felt safe and helped me heal and build confidence. He is tireless and will give as much as his students can take. Working with such an extraordinary teacher is a privilege and a blessing.
Evan Kopelson

“It was so amazing how relaxed and renewed I felt after Matthew’s session.”

I’m very happy to have had the chance to meet with Master Matthew Cohen and have a private session with him. As an athlete, I do high intensity exercise every day, which causes great fatigue and stiffness in my body plus many injuries. It was so amazing how relaxed and renewed I felt after Matthew’s session. During the entire session, Matthew kept observing my body and my energetic state being able to adjust the practice specifically to me. His adjustments were exactly what my body needed as I felt myself slowly open. After the session, I felt better communication between me and my body and hope I can remember and keep the feeling in the future.
Liu Shiwen, Olympic gold medalist of table tennis, China
