PRICING SCHEDULE

Yogalates


This class is taught by:

Jill R Romero

Bio: I’m a native New Yorker and in 2004 I moved to California to attend graduate school and become a teacher. I have been teaching Spanish at Troy High School in Fullerton since 2006. Teaching is something that I am very passionate about, so when I began practicing yoga, I knew right away that, eventually, I would want to share it with others. I was introduced to yoga in May 2015 after sustaining a severe knee injury. Before that, I was an avid runner and soccer player. After my first class, I was captivated by the practice because it was challenging as well as rewarding. Within a few weeks, I started to notice many positive changes in my health and well-being.
 
Yoga allows me to get into a meditative state of relaxation, a conscious space that teaches me about awareness. Through yoga, I operate from a grateful space, and that appreciation has made me look at myself and my life differently. For me, yoga is so much more than the pose. It’s about quieting the mind to allow it to transform you spiritually. I see yoga as a useful complement to the other aspects of my daily life, helping to restore balance to all levels.
 
Teaching Style: I believe that yoga is a tool that helps us discern who we are, and make decisions that are in service to our emotional, physical, and spiritual nourishment. To me, yoga is a quintessential act of self-care and a chance to become embodied, empowered, and more firmly grounded in who we are. I want my students to feel that empowerment and connection when they are in my class. I strive to provide a peaceful and motivating space for my students to get in touch with themselves.

Jamie A 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.

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.

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.

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.

Level: Advanced Beginner/Intermediate
Temperature: 95 degrees F
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.
