Aileen

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.

Aileen instructs the following:
  • Align Your Spine (Yoga Therapy for Back Pain)
  • Yoga enhances the alignment, flexibility, mobility, and stability in all muscles and joints that affect spinal alignment and posture. Achieve relief from back pain by minimizing, healing, and ultimately working to correct underlying physical malfunctions using therapeutic yoga postures. These movements will help students find balanced mobility in the spine by strengthening those muscles that are underutilized and gently stretch and lengthen stiff muscles.

    In this workshop series, the sequence of postures will progress from supported poses on the floor to seated & standing positions and gentle twists. Students will receive a take-home guide of movements they can do on their own to maintain back health and reinforce proper movement patterns for better back health.

  • Hot Yoga Series 1
  • Level: All Levels
    Temperature: 100 degrees F
    Description: Hot Yoga 1 is a class consisting of a set sequence of breathing exercises and asanas practiced in the same order each class. This sequence is designed to systematically open up the muscles, joints, and stimulate the internal organs. Each pose is held for an extended amount of time allowing students to correct their alignment and deepen into the pose with consistent practice. One of the main benefits from this style is the increased awareness and concentration developed from practicing yoga in a heated environment. Synergy is the key to creating community in this class. All of the students are encouraged to move together as one in this class under the direction of the teacher. Moving into, staying in the asana, and releasing out of poses at the same time will greatly promote the uniting energy of this particular class. The intense heat is also critical in speeding up the flexibility in muscles and joints. Additionally, the copious sweating is desired to open up pores in the skin and achieve detoxification from inside and out. Due to the high heat, hydration before class will help students succeed.
