Yin & Sound Healing

This class is taught by:

Aundy Weeks

Bio: Aundy began yoga quite some time ago with a home practice. Her practice then ebbed and flowed until 2009 when her life had become unmanageable. She began practicing at a studio and quickly jumped into a 200 hour Dayton Method teacher training with the intention to just further her practice and to immerse more deeply into the yoga life. However, the passion and love she found was boundless and she wanted to share the life changing experience with others. She has been teaching steadily since January of 2010. In spring of 2014 she took another training but this time a 200 hour Warrior Flow certification because she believes the marriage of these two practices results in a well rounded mind body and spirit. Soon after this she discovered Yin yoga which resonated deeply within her and she took the training because she knew what balance this would bring to the mind. Now, this family of styles offers such opportunity to bring yoga to everyone. She teaches with passion and truly from the heart with a playful spirit.
Teaching Style: Genuine, loving and encouraging

Christian Reid

Bio: Yoga found Christian in 2009 when his mom, a yoga instructor, invited him to attend her class. He was challenged to explore parts of his body that had never been opened, and was surprised to find release from old emotional and psychological baggage that he was not even aware of carrying. This discovery of the inseparable nature of mind, body and spirit led Christian to delve deeper into the practice of yoga with the intention to bring balance to his whole being. As he eagerly practiced all styles of yoga that he encountered, a sense of steadiness and ease arose in his mind and body, and the stresses of everyday life became less engrossing and more manageable. As yoga led Christian to practice self-study more intimately, he was able to articulate his deepest intention of reducing suffering in the world. Inspired by his mom’s work as an instructor and the easing of his own suffering through practice, he knew that one day he too would love to share the gift of yoga with his community through teaching.
In the Fall of 2015, he completed Yoga Tribe's 200-hour Vinyasa Flow Yoga Teacher Training where he first encountered the practice of Sound Meditation. This powerfully transformative experience inspired him to study privately with Gong Master and Sound Meditation Practitioner Giselle Abadie to deepen his understanding of this practice and learn the art of playing gongs, singing bowls, drums and other instruments. Since then his interest in Sound Meditation has blossomed into a burning passion, and he has been blessed to share this ancient yet newly re-emerging practice at yoga and meditation studios across Orange County, as well as in private sessions, treatment centers, and on retreats.
Christian’s love for all forms of yoga has inspired him to pursue further education with Vinyasa Flow Mentorship Program led by Shannon Kassoff E-RYT 500, Yin Yoga Teacher Training with Melissa Christensen E-RYT 500, and Teaching Yoga for Recovery led by Alysa Osvog E-RYT 500. His thirst for knowledge and desire to share this transformative practice with the world motivates him to continue learning on the mat, through personal study and more training.
Teaching Style: (Sound Meditation) Christian guides students through breath work exploration, gentle movement, and guided imagery to prepare students to open and receive the benefits of the sound meditation. He then guides participants deep into meditation using symphonic and planetary-tuned gongs, Tibetan and crystal singing bowls, drums, and chimes, while chanting mantras in harmony with the instruments. During this profoundly transformative practice, Christian holds space for inner journeying in a way that supports gentle transitions into and out of deeper levels of consciousness.

Christine Rolfe

Bio: Christine started to meditate when she was around 6 years old, staring at a Holly Hobby picture on the wall to settle her mind at night. Only decades later did she learn she was practicing Trataka, the meditative practice of gazing at an external object. Perhaps it is no surprise that Christine was naturally drawn to meditation and started practicing again as a way to calm her mind and increase mindfulness in her daily life.
As Christine continued to develop her meditation practice, she experienced even more benefits including reduced insomnia, more focus and an increased connectedness with life. She was happier. She was drawn to the practice and wanted to learn as much about meditation as possible. Christine explains “If I can meditate (with my over-active mind) anyone can!"
Christine became certified to teach the Simple, Easy, Every Day Meditation (SEED Meditation®) created by Sarah McLean. She also holds a BA in Communications and Business Economics from the University of California, Santa Barbara. Her desire is to teach meditation to individuals or groups looking for a way to improve their well-being through meditation. Her smile grows even larger when teaching people who are new to meditation as she loves the idea of spreading the practice. Christine lives in Orange County with her husband, teenage son and two furry friends, Ruka and Maya. Her interests outside of meditation include hiking, yoga, writing and traveling.
Teaching Style: Meditation is the practice of bringing your gentle attention to a focus again and again. The focus could be your breath, mantra, physical sensations or anything that allows you to return to the present moment in a gentle way. I teach the Simple, Easy, Every Day Meditation Method (SEED Meditation Method) which is a collection of powerful, time-tested meditation practices that can reduce stress and enhance your life. The foundation of the meditation practices I teach includes breath awareness, body awareness, silent mantra, self-inquiry and heart centered breath. My favorite techniques are focusing on the breath and body… it is simple and you always have them available for you!

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.

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.

Level: All Levels
Temperature: Room Temperature
Description: Yin yoga with sound healing can create space for the sound to soothe you, raise consciousness and carry you into other realms of the experience. Yin yoga consists of longer held, mostly seated or lying postures that passively stretch connective tissue and muscles in order to unblock held energy and release physical tightness. The healing sounds of the crystal bowls, chimes, drums and more can bring harmony to the body, mind and spirit. Yin is practiced in a cool room and appropriate for all levels (including prenatal).
