About Aileen


My Childhood

Aileen as a childI was born in Orange County, California early 1984. As a child, I suffered from allergies, asthma and eczema, which prevented me from participating in many of the outdoor activities that my friends enjoyed. Instead, I was forced to find other means to exert my abundant energy creatively, doing so through drawing, music, and martial arts. As my strength began to improve, I became more active, participating in swimming, track and field, and tennis.


My Yoga Journey

I started my yoga practice 12 years ago initially to lose weight. I soon came to find that the benefits of yoga surpassed weight loss when the challenges from my youth became more manageable. The severe eczema and allergies diminished and my breathing improved from extensive pranayama (yogic breathing) practice. But it was not until my mother was diagnosed with breast cancer that I realized the power of yoga.  During her battle, I relied on my practice to relieve my mind from upset and stress. Through my time on the mat, I developed a sense of self, clarity, and compassion that was critical during this time of my life.

As the Universe would have it, I had never intended on becoming a yoga teacher. I just happened to be in a class one day when the teacher was running late and I was asked to stand in until she arrived. This was the moment that started it all.


My Education

Since then I’ve completed multiple yoga certifications and have wholeheartedly embraced by passion and purpose to teach yoga to uplift and enable people to reveal their radiance. For me radiance is about being at peace in your own skin and authentically expressing who you are.  I do this as a daughter, sister, girlfriend, teacher and entrepreneur as I go on my journey.

Why Spectra Yoga?

Not only do I love the teaching aspects of yoga, but I love the business and managerial aspects of the industry. Entrepreneurship runs in the blood of my family and my degree is in Business Administration. Therefore, opening a studio was the perfect marriage of my DNA and passion. For me, running a business is all about successfully managing people and one of the best gifts that I receive from teaching yoga are the numerous relationships that I have cultivated with students, mentors, and fellow teachers.
