Candlelight Vinyasa Flow


This class is taught by:

Alyssa Lugtu

Alyssa discovered her passion for yoga early in 2011. She committed herself to the practice, while searching for a way to bring greater strength and happiness into her life. Through her active lifestyle, she found yoga to allow her to connect the mind and body. She wishes to share the same joy she has found with others. Her teaching is inspired by a variety of styles she has studied including hatha, ashtanga, kundalini, and yin. Since her training, she has deepened her practice and expanded her knowledge as a teacher. Alyssa completed a 200 hour teacher training with Noell Clark, and is a certified RYT with the Yoga Alliance. Her mission is to inspire individuals within the community to breathe deeply and live with soulful and loving intention through the teachings of yoga. Her fun and upbeat nurturing classes are great for all!

Angela Arrivo

Angela is a certified Vinyasa Yoga teacher currently living in the Bay Area. Starting her Yoga journey in 2013, she quickly became intrigued with Yoga as a philosophy and as a way of life. Since then she has relocated from her hometown in the south suburbs of Chicago to northern California where she completed her 200-hour RYT with Noell Clark. Angela's practice started as a desire for knowledge and has since grown into a passion for what she calls "giving the best gift you can give to yourself: Yoga". Off the mat, you can find Angela indulging in a stack of books, advocating her beliefs on a plant-based diet, or finding equanimity in nature & sunshine.

Praveen Ananth

“There is nothing purer in this world than knowledge of the true self. In due time, this will come to the devoted practitioner of yoga.” - Bhagavad Gita Chapter 4, verse 38

Hailing from Southern India, Praveen is a lifelong student of Sanskrit and Sanatana Dharma philosophy, earnestly seeking to apply its time-tested wisdom to everyday, practical life. He completed his 200-hour Teacher Training with Kia Miller, founder of Radiant Body Yoga (RBY). This intelligent approach combines the technical aspects of Vinyasa postures with breath-focused and mantra-based kriyas (sequenced set of poses) of Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan. Thus able to holistically balance the inward and outward energies of the body and the mind. An engineer and mathematician by trade, with ongoing international corporate experience, Praveen also enjoys cooking, gardening, motorcycling and flying.


Proceeds from all of his classes go towards supporting the homeless in the Bay Area. http://www.bayarearescue.org/
