Yogalates


This class is taught by:

Jaclyn Avalos

Bio: Jaclyn was born and raised in Orange County, and studied Health Sciences at UC Santa Cruz. She has always been very active, committing early on to dance, gymnastics, soccer, and swim, but it wasn't until she began her yoga journey after college that she found her true passion. Jaclyn lives to be outdoors, loves to cook, and truly believes in the healing forces of nature. In 2009, Jaclyn completed her RYT Power Vinyasa yoga training, and since has been trained and certified in Hot yoga, Sculpting yoga, Restorative yoga, and mat Pilates. For Jaclyn, practicing yoga has had such a positive impact both physically and mentally. Every day she looks forward to sharing her knowledge to help educate others about the many benefits of yoga, and inspiring individuals to live healthier, happier lives.
 
Teaching Style: I think of my teaching style as graceful but challenging. Combining breath and movement with fines and strength.
 
3 things I would put in a time capsule: If I were to put three items in a time capsule so someone in the future could better understand me, I would put a photo of my amazing family showing one of our many fiestas in Yucatan, my swim fins because I should've been born with gills, and the yoga BeachBody dvd I just filmed because it was a huge yoga stepping stone for me and my little claim to fame :)

Aileen Pham

Bio: In the early summer of 2003, Aileen began her Hot Yoga practice after strong recommendations by her Aunt Ann. Initially her yoga practice was intended as a solution for the infamous “Freshman 10” she gained at the University of Southern California. Yet soon thereafter through an intense and dedicated practice, the fat shed and Aileen discovered that yoga's benefits offered much more than losing weight. Since childhood, Aileen suffered from acute eczema, asthma, and allergies. In fact, the allergies were quite severe and she resorted to allergen immunotherapy. Enduring the allergy shot regimen for six years, she finally stopped after developing an on going yoga practice. She soon noticed that her allergy, asthma, and eczema symptoms were beginning to slowly disappear a year later. Additionally, as an athlete with a background in tennis, swimming, and track & field, Aileen discovered a great alternative to intensive sports in Hot Yoga. Aileen soon found that Hot Yoga not only increased her flexibility, but also relieved stress, increased energy, improved balance, and developed acute body awareness and concentration. Yoga proved to be extremely complementary to her workouts outside the yoga studio.Aileen completed two 200 hour yoga teacher training with Yoga Works in 2007 and with Corepower Yoga in 2008. In 2010, she completed her 500 hour yoga therapy training. She also studied to become a personal trainer in 2007 and has taken multiple workshops to continue her education especially in the area of Acro Yoga, Kids Yoga, Pre-natal, and Aerial. Coupling her knowledge of different types of yoga and personal fitness helps her to become a better yoga instructor and therapist. Her love for the practice has inspired her to teach and help others live a healthier and balanced life.
 
Teaching Style: I teach with a lot of enthusiasm and energy as I love to motivate and support my students. No matter what style of class I am teaching, I want my students to let go and rely that I will guide them safely through an encouraging and fun class. My goal is to uplift my students' minds and bodies to face new challenges and conquer old ones all the while staying present to enjoy each moment of class.
 
3 Things I would put in a time capsule: Hanson's 1997 debut album "Middle of Nowhere," photo album of vacations with friends and family, and one of my paintings

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.

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.

Melissa Christensen

Bio: Lead Teacher Trainer for Spectra School of Yoga - Yoga quickly became a way of life for Melissa when she noticed that the most significant impact of her practice was happening off the mat. With a strong desire to find a deeper meaning and more balanced way of life, she delved into the authentic teachings and philosophy behind the science and practice of yoga. Now an E-RYT500 Yoga Alliance certified teacher, having graduated from Yoga Pura’s 500-hour Advanced Studies & Teacher Training program in Phoenix, AZ, she is devoted to sharing her passion for yoga and the gift this transformational practice offers to all of her students. Her teaching style is balanced between the philosophical and physical offerings of yoga. Whether it’s through flowing vinyasa movement or a slow quiet practice like yin, she takes students on a journey. Using the tools of yoga, married with skillfully selected music and postures, she offers insights and experiments that encourage students to notice unhelpful habits in an effort to find greater joy and peace on and off the mat. Her intention is to challenge both your body and mind - question your perception of reality - leaving you with a profound opportunity for transformation. Fulfilling a deepening intention to teach and share this practice, she is now co-lead teacher for Spectra School of Yoga's Teacher Training program. Melissa is forever thankful to her teachers and friends for guiding and encouraging her as she continues to deepen her own practice and teachings.

Level: Advanced Beginner/Intermediate

Description:Two worlds collide in one class. Yogalates is a great combination of yoga and pilates to achieve a tremendous amount of core strengthening. Students will experience yoga’s incredible ability to warm up the body and enhance flexibility, which ultimately supports the mental and physical alignment required in all of the mat pilates exercises. These two disciplines go hand in hand as the benefits of each art feed into the other. The importance of yoga alignment combined with pilates’ core strengthening exercises makes for a challenging yet worthwhile experience. This class is appropriate for intermediate level students.
