Gilbert & Ashely
​​ Ashley’s love for yoga & holistic arts started in 2009 with a desire to start meditating. Ashley feels yoga has given her the tools for self-discovery, personal growth, acceptance, & mostly a connection to a more conscious way of living. Ashley strives for a more therapeutic approach when teaching yoga; she designs her classes with alignment techniques to help enhance poses. She uses props to make the seemingly undoable completely accessible for all. Ashley specializes in Intro to yoga courses and works well with modifications and hands on adjustments for those who may have physical limitations. She loves to share yogic philosophy and reminds her students to stay connected with their breath, tune into their bodies, and reconnect with their heart; ultimately to find our true self. Ashley believes we reveal our truest selves in our practice, which gives us the ability to self-reflect and ask those deeper underlining questions about who we are and who we want to be in the world. With this she has discovered a more conscious way of living by noticing how we impact the world around us and invites her students to step into their greatness. Ashley is the co-founder of Kaya Yoga Remedy in Huntington Beach where she continuously runs 200 hour yoga
 
Gilbert has combined his knowledge of anatomy and an extensive love of music with his passion for yoga to create a more modern, unique, and ever changing approach to yoga. In an world were change is the only constant, Gilbert chooses to study both Iyengar principles and pair them with dynamic strengthening techniques to keep the practice evolving. His classes focus on alignment, strong yet basic postures and he adds some classical advanced postures as well. Gilbert’s kind and humbling spirit make classes light hearted, fun, and challenging to both the mind and spirit. Gilbert found yoga to be energizing both mentally and physically and he has made yoga an essential part of his life. Gilbert believes true awareness starts with internal, the more you can be aware of our bodies and how they move, the more we can be aware of how effects ourselves and others, we can only change what you are completely aware of.

Karen Abbott & Mark Boyko
​​Come play with Karen and Mark in a high vibration of fun and love. Partner Yoga increases joy, playfulness, and deep releases with the help of others.  You don’t need to bring a partner, just show up and there will be folks to connect with.  In community, learn to lightheartedly explore your abilities to open, communicate and trust.  Karen has been teaching heart-centered yoga for 23 years in San Diego and rural Arizona with certifications in Hatha, Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy, and AcroYoga along with years of practice with Ashtanga, Anusara, Yin, Restorative, and Bikram.  When she partnered with her yogi husband Mark (also certified), a childlike playfulness emerged.
  

Laura Adona
After practicing yoga for over 10 years Laura found herself looking for a spiritual connection and ways to educate herself in order to deepen her practice.  Laura obtained her 200-hour RYT certificate at 8 Deep Yoga, a training program which emphasized that yoga is "deeper than asana". Becoming a yoga instructor has only made her a more voracious student of the world of "yogic" knowledge, but focusing on the breath and honoring one's body, she believes, is fundamental to any practice and something she hopes to impart on all her students. Her mantra is that anyone can practice yoga, all you have to do is breathe. Laura will guide you during a morning flow with poses that warm and awaken the body while greeting the morning sun.
