Lead Trainer:
 is a very naturally, enthusiastic and strong yogi who guides her students through a creative and well sequenced yoga practice.

At the age of 17 Louise began taking yoga classes and later became a yoga instructor in 2002. She taught at Yoga Shakti and received guidance from Jnana Nanda Bharati, a yogi from the Himalayas. Louise has also studied under David Swanson, Erich Schiffman, Ana Forest and Dharma Mittra.

In 2008 Louise went to San Francisco to learn contortion and worked at Yoga Tree SF, San Francisco’s premier yoga studio. During her time in the Bay Area Louise received her 200-hour teacher training from Dharma Mittra and from Yoga Tree SF, she also finished her contortion training and became a contortion teacher at Circus Center San Francisco.
In 2012 Louise moved back to Southern California and is currently took her 500-hour teacher training at Yoga Shakti. She continues her pursuit to share health and happiness through yoga.

Lead Trainer:
 passion for physical fitness and well-being began at an early age when she fell in love with the study of movement in her dance classes she took as a kid. After high school she began taking Pilates and Yoga to stay active in the same style of body mechanics that she missed from her dance classes. During this time she worked in the skin care and beauty industry as an Esthetician, but it was the joy she experienced through her yoga practice that compelled her to leave the beauty industry to pursue a career in teaching.

After completing 200hr trainings through both Yogaworks and Corepower, she began teaching in 2011. She later gained an additional 300hr certification through Yogaworks, as well as a Pilates certification through Lisa Schlaeger. She then ventured into Barre and TRX.

With her vast array of experience and knowledge, her style of teaching reflects an eclectic influence of the different methodologies she has studied, while offering a uniquely creative approach to her classes as she customizes them to her student's individual needs and levels- always with an added touch of humor.

Jaime has co-led teacher trainings through both Corepower and Yogaworks, as well as led specialized teacher certifications through Ra Yoga.

Assistant Trainer & Co-founder:
 It has been said that yoga is a vast subject and understanding it is a lifelong pursuit. Committed to a lifestyle of balance and healthy habits, Courtney’s love of yoga as a means to empower those around her with an avenue to reach their full potential pushed her to follow her dream of opening a fun and friendly studio where anyone could pursue their practice of yoga. Courtney embraced her passion for yoga and decided to dive deeper into the journey by taking the 200 hour teacher training for Hot Power Fusion and another 200 hour in Vinyasa Flow at Corepower Yoga, Huntington Beach. She has also been certified to teach Stand Up Paddleboard Yoga, Restoratives, Yin Yoga, Kids Yoga, & Prenatal Yoga and enjoys incorporating these into her classes. Courtney graduated from Cal State Long Beach with a degree in Kinesiology- Exercise Science, as well as, a degree in education. She started out teaching science by day and yoga at night and now she has made yoga her full time career.
