Matt B Benavidez

Bio: Matt was born and raised in Orange County and lives an active lifestyle. He enjoys running, biking, hiking, surfing, skating, and and most team sports. He began taking yoga classes as a way to gain more balance and flexibility, and quickly realized its benefits physically, mentally, and spiritually. Matt quickly fell in love with the philosophy of yoga and tries to incorporate it into his daily life on and off the mat. He is constantly trying to create a place of peace and happiness in the studio and in his life. As an avid musician, he finds a sense of relaxation while playing multiple instruments and listening to an eclectic mix of music. Matt completed his 200 hr teacher training in December 2012 and is constantly learning as much as he can about different styles of yoga to better his students practice as well as his own.

Robin Gallo

Bio: Robin's was born and raised in Southern California. In pursuing her love of fitness she eventually came to work directly with the Commanding General of the MCAGCC in 29 Palms. She assisted in running the entire sports department for the Marines aboard the base and helped to represent the Marines in national and world-wide competitions such as the Ironman World Championships.
 
After working with the Marines for four years Robin left the work force to raise her family while maintaining an active lifestyle, running, hiking, camping and traveling the world. It wasn't until after taking her first yoga class in early 2010 she knew right away that Yoga would be her next career. Robin knew she wanted to share her new-found enthusiasm for yoga and combine it with the experience she received while working with the Marines to create her own style of teaching. She completed her RYT and continued her education by becoming certified in Hot Power Fusion, Hot Yoga, Intermediate and Advanced Power Vinyasa Flow and Yoga Sculpt Flow. Robin has united her knowledge of fitness and the human body along with her passion for yoga to create a contemporary and athletic approach to her instruction. You are always guaranteed a challenging yet spiritual practice in her class.
 
Teaching Style: I am a contemporary, athletic yogi with a modern approach to the traditional yoga flow. I enjoy creating challenging and intelligently sequenced flows that energize the mind,body and soul. It is my goal in every class to bring students to a deeper level of self-awareness. I strive to use the power of yoga along with an authentic connection to reach each student not only physically but on a spiritual level as well.

3 things I would put in a time capsule: 1. I have a deep affection for music. It has been a tremendous part of my life since the day I was born. Being raised in a divorced family meant I lived between 3 houses all my life. I lived with my mom and step-dad, my babysitter (she watched me during the day from ages 1 yr-12 yrs old) and with my dad. My step-dad was in a rock band and would play in our living room with a full band rocking out to Clapton, Zeppelin and Lynard Skynard. My dad was a huge progressive music fan and educated me on amazing music such as The Eagles, Pink Floyd and Supertramp. Then my babysitter listened to nothing but Country music by Reba McEntire, Kenny Rogers, and Pasty Cline. So of course during high school I rebelled from them all and listened to Rap and soon to be HipHop. So it would be safe to say I have had a broad exposure to all kinds of music and I am so very thankful for that. Therefore, I would include my favorite pieces of music in a time capsule from many different genres.

2. I have been making hand-tied mala beads for myself for years and just recently started my own company. I enjoy using the power of the stones and crystals along with the chakras to help me grow physically and spiritually. I would probably add one of my own mala designs in the time capsule.

3. The most important thing I would add to the time capsule would be photos of my family. I was an only child with no aunts, no uncles and no cousins so my children me the world to me. Anyone who truly knows me… also knows my kids. They are my life, my love and my reason for existence. Being MOM is the only “label” I wear with pride.

Leslie Rothman

Bio: Yoga became a way of life for me when my youngest son was in pre-kindergarten and I had time to dedicate to the practice. After my first yoga class, I was hooked! I love that I was able to have an hour or two out of the day to dedicate to myself and I was able to focus on nothing but what was happening on the mat. I soon became a regular on my yoga mat, practicing any free time I had. I love how yoga challenged me, at the same leaving me with a sense of peace and contentment. My husband and I share our love of yoga and meditation with our children.
I decided to take Spectra School of Yoga's teacher training program in 2016. It was an incredible experience and I loved what I was learning. My hatha/vinyasa yoga style is strongly influenced by the great teachers I have had along the way. I feel very fortunate to have been surrounded by and continue to feel the support in my home, my neighborhood and yoga community. Yoga has enriched my life in insurmountable ways!  
 
Teaching Style: My teaching style is vinyasa flow with attention to cueing and alignment. I am encouraging to my students allowing them to feel comfortable and not intimidated, to challenge themselves.
 
3 things I would put in a time capsule:
1) picture of my family, 2) ipod with all my music, 3) yoga mat

Karen Clark

Bio: I teach yoga because I believe in it’s ability to heal our minds and bodies after experiencing it for myself. Prior to trying yoga I had a regular fitness routine that included ballet dancing, Pilates, aerobic classes and light strength training. Even though I was active I found myself spending a lot of time visiting my massage therapist and chiropractor to repair imbalances in my physiology. I began looking for a more effective way to restore harmony in my body and tried my first yoga class at age 40. I started noticing improvements in my flexibility and functionality with yoga. Shortly after I began a regular yoga practice I had some difficult life events that really tested my emotional wellness too. I craved the peace that I found each time I went to yoga, and found it was helping my mind as much as my body. That grew into a real love for it and a spark to share my love with others by becoming a certified instructor.

I teach Hatha / Vinyasa yoga and Aerial Yoga. I love the lighthearted fun of the hammock classes and discovering new ways of using the hammock for strengthening, stretching, restoring and translating yoga poses in new dimensions.

 

Teaching Style: Encouraging, friendly, educational. I am very focused on teaching alignment and breath so my students find stability and space in their postures first, and then start exploring strength and depth of the pose.

 

3 things I would put in a time capsule: A fuzzy warm sweater, lip gloss, photo of my husband, son & dogs.

Jeri White

Bio: A lifelong Cardio junkie who dabbled in yoga occasionally, Jeri discovered hot yoga while recovering from an running injury in early 2006. A new obsession was born. After practicing daily for five months, she was trained to become an instructor of hot yoga. Since then she has completed a 200 hour Yoga Alliance certification and has become a certified Pilates mat instructor, as well as an indoor cycling instructor. Jeri believes that yoga should be fun and motivates her class with a soundtrack that rocks. She is the mother of two beautiful daughters and in her spare time works as a registered nurse.
 
Teaching Style: Loud and fun. Emphasis on proper alignment and safety at all times.
 
3 things I would put in a time capsule: My Bible (with my notes and highlights), my playlists (both yoga and spin), my photo albums from when my girls were little

Hatha Yoga Level 2: Flow and Let Go
Level: Advanced Beginner/Intermediate
Temperature: 95 degrees F
Description: Level 2 yoga builds upon the fundamentals learned in Level 1 to add an increased challenge to a yoga class. The solid knowledge base learned from Level 1 carry over to this class and Level 2 students are encouraged to let go of newcomer energy and flow confidently in this class. Instructors sequence the asanas in more ornate and creative fashions to keep students improving and feeling challenged. Some instructors may choose to teach this class in a Vinyasa format where the poses and transitions from pose to pose are linked with a breath cue. Depending on the teacher, this class can be taught at a faster pace than the Level 1 class. Additionally, a broader range of asanas and breathing techniques are taught to increase flexibility, strength, and concentration. This class is practiced in a warm room and is appropriate for advanced beginner/intermediate students.
