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.

Colleen Hieber

Bio: Lead Teacher Trainer for Spectra School of Yoga - As a professional dancer, I was first drawn to Yoga as a reliable method for physical therapy that I could practice on my own. Eventually, Yoga became so much more - I was hooked to its alignment principles, philosophy, mindfulness, and meditation. I also found a community of people on a similar path to personal growth. I made teaching Yoga my path in life, after experiencing the healing power of this practice, during a particularly traumatic event. I have never looked back. It is the greatest gift to share this practice with students and new teachers.
I bring strong alignment principles into my teaching with the space for students to have their own experience. In my classes, I create a space for students to press forward and to be still. I spent 8 years diving deeply into the teachings of Anusara yoga. I did my first 200-hour teacher training with Tony Guiliano, Kenny Graham, Tara Judelle, and Mark Holzman. I have completed teacher training intensives with Christina Sell and Noah Maze. My prenatal training is with Jessica Jennings and Ma Yoga (85 hours). I completed my 500-hour advanced teacher training with Noah Maze (Yogamaze). I am skilled in pose mechanics, therapeutics, meditation, labor skills, and have trained as a birth doula with Ana Paula Markel.
I have a deep and abiding call to bring the teachings of yoga to all different types of people – from pregnant women to aging baby boomers. The lessons of yoga are universal. There is an innate intelligence and inherent power in the human body that is both accessible and transformational. I can give you the tools to dig deep and realize the power of grace. E-RYT 200, RYT 500 and RPYT

Teaching Style: I am a teacher that is very interested in optimal alignment - and teaching that alignment. I also care deeply about the inner journey of the student. I hope that students have that dual experience of focusing deeply on the physical form and constantly reflecting back on how the shapes of the body effect the state of the mind and heart.

3 things I would put in a time capsule: yoga mat, my journal, hairspray :)

Jill 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.
 
3 things in I would put in a time capsule: My mala beads, a picture of my loved ones, and of course, my yoga mat. :)

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 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.

Nycole Primm

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.

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

Cassie Wierenga

Bio: Cassie has always been an intellectual and spiritual seeker. At a very early age she began asking deep questions about the nature of the universe and the purpose of life. Cassie was unable to find literature or community that aligned with her thoughts to support her pursuit, until she found yoga! Being a natural athlete, Cassie easily sunk into the physical practice, and loved being able to connect her physicality with her mental and spiritual pursuits. Yoga changed her life, allowing her anxiety to ease, her heart to open, and her energy to soar. Wanting to share this path with others, Cassie completed her 200-hour teacher training in fall of 2014. She has also completed a 10-hour Yin Yoga training, and a 12-hour Prison yoga training. Cassie teaches for homeless shelters around Orange County, and hopes to bring yoga to the prison community. She loves leading her students to a good workout, proper alignment, and a stable and steady mind, while sharing a bit of yoga philosophy.
 
Teaching Style: Cassie’s classes are ever evolving as she continues to develop in her role as a teacher. She leads a strong class, helping her students to find their edge, while guiding them to proper alignment for optimal strength and length. Her classes are also mindfulness based, always with the main intention of cultivating awareness and learning strategies to have a calm control over your own thoughts and emotions.
 
3 things I would put in a time capsule: 1. Gold promise ring. This not only symbolizes love, but also family, friendship, community and commitment. The stuff life is made of!

2. Meditations by Marcus Aurelius. Symbolizing my dedication to self-realization and academic pursuits.

3. Bell-bottom yoga pants (with a fun print). Symbolizing my love for yoga (of course!), as well as creative expression without regard to societal norms, the ability and strength to express yourself authentically.

Hatha Yoga Level 1: Yoga Fundamentals
