This class is taught by:

Alejandro Rivas

Alejandro has been teaching yoga for 12 years and is a Lululemon Ambassador. Yoga has shaped his life tremendously, it allows him to be present in every moment, to not take anything for granted, and to surround himself with amazing friends and family. He teaches Vinyasa Flow and specializes in various types of massages such as Prenatal, Shiatsu, Reflexlogy, Crainiosacrial and Sports Massage.

Misako Matsuoka

Misako Matsuoka hopes to share her belief that the practice of yoga can offer dynamic opportunities to discover the youthfulness of the body and to open the heart and mind. She strives to infuse her classes with playful challenges, attention to healthy alignment, and a deep connection to the breath. Misako completed her Yoga Teacher Training at Avalon Yoga in Palo Alto in 2005 and is currently a student of Chinese Medicine and Therapeutic Yoga. She studies Yin yoga with Paul Grilley and Restorative yoga with Judith Lasater. She immersed herself in Anusara yoga with Sianna Sherman, Samantha Shakti and Kenny Graham. She studies the Shadow Yoga style with Sharre Young. She has studied vinyasa with Janet Stone, and is profoundly thankful to Max Strom for his teachings. Through all these lineages of yoga she has created integral experience that seeks to balance the neuromuscular system of the physical body as well as the eternal nature of the spirit. Misako has degrees in Biology and Engineering, and is registered teacher with the Yoga Alliance.
This slower moving, meditative flow balances both the body and the mind, allowing you to focus deeply on your breath and alignment to release tension and tightness in the body. We'll start class with some gentle sun salutations to warm up then move into smooth, stable holds in postures designed to nourish and strengthen the deeper tissues. This class is a perfect for all levels and is a balancing complement to an active lifestyle and Yang practice.
