PRICING SCHEDULE

Hatha/Vinyasa Yoga Level 2


This class is taught by:

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.
 
Teaching Style: Very Grounding approach to teaching power vinyasa, hot, and yin/restorative yoga

Joey O'mara

Bio: Joey completed his training in 2010 to teach Vinyasa Yoga and Yoga Lift. When he's not teaching his high energy, pumped up classes, you can find him riding his bike across the county, dueling out in intergalactic star fights, and traveling the world searching for the best house music for his classes, while always keeping an eye out for the Temple of Doom. *mostly true
 
Teaching Style: High energy, powerful, and spiritual. Medicine for your soul
 
3 things I would put in a time capsule: Basketball, soccer ball, & frisbee

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.

Tanesha Dodson

Bio: TaNesha began dabbling in yoga over ten years ago. After attempting various methods for dealing with unmanageable anxiety, TaNesha took yoga much more seriously, and found it vastly improved her state. She began to regularly study and practice daily until teacher training seemed inevitable. She received her 200 hour yoga certification 5 years ago through Core Power Yoga. She has taught all around California, including in Orange County, Palm Springs, and Fresno. She has had the pleasure of teaching in various environments to a wide range of students, from rehab facilities to elementary schools, and from veterans to professional athletes. She is currently working on her Masters in Psychology and completing her 500 hour teacher training with a dream of developing a therapy practice wherein which yoga for trauma has a significant place.
 
Teaching Style: Honest and Purposeful

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.

Jamie Ali

Bio: Growing up as a dancer, Jamie was first introduced to yoga in a ballet class at the age of 13. It wasn't until after her first child that she really saw the benefits, healing and beauty of yoga. She practiced mostly on her own until stumbling into a yoga class at the gym. It was then that she realized how special yoga was. After leaving that class, she felt amazingly happy, strong and emotionally empowered. She had made yoga her life. Wanting nothing more than to share the special gift with all who are willing.
 
Teaching style: I teach with love and compassion with an emphasis on alignment and safety. My teaching style is slower, allowing time and breath to melt into each pose.
 
3 things I would put in my time capsule: 1. Pictures of my family
2. French fries
3. T.V. so I can watch judge Judy (my guilty pleasure)
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.
