Bikram/Hot Yoga is one more his more favorite styles as he has noticed how the hot yoga classes has helped him with his endurance and flexibility. In May 2004, Coach Kevin won the Bikram yoga challenge by going to yoga every day consecutively for 30 days. 

"Practicing yoga has kept me injury free, while training for marathons. My running time have improved dramatically, and I believe the addition of yoga into my training has gotten me to Boston 3 times. I believe yoga and running is the perfect combination. It works for me and other athletes, and I know it will work for you." ~Coach Kevin

Biography: Dustin is a veteran special educator in Laguna Beach and local alumni of OCC, CSUF, and Concordia Universities. His background as an instructional coach (TOSA) as well as decades of running experience lend itself to an "easy-going" coaching style. In 1997, Dustin ran the CBK Trail Marathon. As training intensified, he realized the advantage of practicing Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga to strengthen both his body and overall wellness while preventing injury. Dustin went on to run several marathons including  LA, Napa, and Big Sur. As a hiker and naturalist, ecotourism is his passion.
Dustin has been a multisport athlete since childhood and may be found at the pier playing beach volleyball, spotted snowboarding with Coach Kevin at Mammoth after winter storms, or on the Back Bay Loop Trail loving each and every hill.

Biography: Amanda has been an avid runner since middle school. All throughout her childhood into her early 20s she's been an athlete playing sports like basketball, volleyball, and softball. She started running because it helped her condition for club sports, which ultimately made her a faster player on her team sports. Some races that she's participated in are Chamber of Commerce 5k Corona Del Mar, Radical Obstacle Race, OC Marathon, and Ragnar Run. 

Amanda has coupled her running with TRX and Yoga. TRX trains provides strength and endurance for all of her obstacle races, while yoga has upped her game 100%! She has better blood flow throughout her body, which has reduced the cramping. She finds that her improved flexibility in mind and body is clutch for mental determination to finish the long distance runs.
