PRICING SCHEDULE

Hatha/Vinyasa Yoga Level 1


This class is taught by:

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.

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

Joey O'mara

Bio: After tearing his ACL playing Collegiate Lacrosse in the fall of 2006, Joseph needed to find a way to stay strong through the injury and he turned to yoga. The healing path of Iyengar Yoga was extremely intriguing and Joey started to seriously study Iyengar's methods at Western State University, CO. Following the yogic path he completed his 200 Hour Teacher Training at Corepower Yoga, Huntington Beach in 2010. Joseph continues his studies over the next 8 years throughout the country with world renown teachers such as Brock Cayhill, Shiva Rea, Janet Stone, & Annie Carpenter to name a few. He has accumulated over 5,000 hours on the mat and has found yoga to be the backbone for developing happy, healthy & conscious lifestyle. 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

Haunani Nakabara

Bio: After I partially tore my Achilles tendons playing volleyball, I had to find a new way to workout that would also help rehabilitate my leg. I started attending yoga classes and fell in love with it. Not only was I getting a great workout, I was given the opportunity to find peace and relaxation. And that’s exactly what I need to balance my Big 4 Accounting job (I’m also a CPA/product manager at KPMG). My favorite practice is Yin Yoga, which lead me to complete Yin Yoga teacher training even though I wasn’t a yoga teacher yet. The course fueled me to want more! With the encouragement and support of my yoga family, I decided to take my practice to the next level by taking the 200 hour teacher training. Now, here I am sharing my love of yoga with you today!
 
Teaching Style: Do you feel like you’re constantly on overdrive and your mind is always racing? Are you looking for a calm and peaceful place? Many of us live fast pace, demanding, and hectic lives – jobs, kids, traffic. Come to my class for the chance to unplug, take a breath, and center yourself.
 
3 things I would put in a time capsule: Pictures of friends and family, a note summarizing the past year, and a family tree.

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
 
3 things I would put in a time capsule: iPod with all my favorite music/created music, Light on Yoga, and a Tibetan singing bowl
 

Karen C 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: Lip gloss, yoga mat, cozy sweater & sweat pants

Bio: Nycole Primm was born and raised in Lakewood, Ca. She moved to beautiful Huntington Beach in 2001. She is a licensed Cosmetologist and has been working in the beauty industry as a stylist and makeup artist since 1996. She has always loved helping people feel beautiful. In 2006 she was introduced to Yoga Tribe by a friend. While unsure of the hot yoga experience she enjoyed her first class and signed up immediately. After going regularly for a few years she took a year off. In that year off she noticed that something was lacking and realized she craved the mind/body experience that she had found in hot yoga. With a new motivation she came back in 2011 full force. The benefits she received physically, mentally and spiritually were profound. This is what inspired her to do the Dayton Method Teacher Training in summer of 2013. A year later took vinyasa flow teacher training with Robin Hall & is 200hr RYT certified through Yoga Alliance.
Nycole wants to give back to what gave her such healing. The most wonderful thing to see is people enjoying the small and big victories in class and the joy they get from their successes. Yoga has become a true passion. A constant learning experience, she continues to study & further her practice. She loves teaching and helping others further their yoga journey.
 
Teaching Style: My teaching style I'd describe as motivational, compassionate, & patient. I love helping new students experiencing yoga for the 1st time.

Lynette Dobos

Bio: Lynette came to yoga after being diagnosed with Fibromyalgia at the age of 32. Searching for more natural ways to heal her body from debilitating pain, a friend suggested she try yoga - and
she was instantly hooked. Lynette loved the way the physical practice of yoga could be adapted to suit her individual body’s needs, which, over time, helped her regain mobility and relief from pain. Eager to learn more, she began what is now a 20+ year journey into the study and practice of yoga asana, yoga philosophy, pranayama and meditation. Many classes, workshops, trainings and retreats later, Lynette knew it was her dharma to share the gift of yoga
with others. In 2015 she completed her 200-hour yoga teacher training program with Colleen Hieber, Melissa Christensen and Aileen Pham at Spectra Yoga. She is currently completing her 300-hour advanced yoga teacher training with Courtney Parkyn, Megan Bello, Liz Heffernan and
Alison Scola through Soma Yoga Institute and Better Living Yoga.

Teaching Style: Lynette believes that yoga is accessible to everyone, regardless of age, fitness level, injuries, or conditions. Recognizing that no two bodies are the same, she takes an adaptive approach to teaching. Whether you are a beginner or advanced practitioner, her students are encouraged to embrace their uniqueness and approach their yoga practice in an authentic way that supports their individual bodies. Lynette’s intention for her students is that they will develop a deeper mind-body connection and experience the many healing benefits of yoga, resulting in an increase in overall wellness and vitality.
