Our Teachers

The path of yoga developed over my academic and professional career but it wasn’t until early 2016 that I developed a practice of meditation. After 5 years in corporate advertising, I decided to pursue a freelance and consulting career in digital marketing and copywriting. During this period of transition, daily yoga and meditation helped me process, heal and see through times of doubt and fear. 

Meditation is mindfulness in stillness. It honors our inner light, restores the patience in our mind and the strength in our soul. 

For all that yoga and meditation has given me, I wanted to honor my practice by sharing its light and healing properties with others. So after practicing for over 8 years, I became a RYT-200 Yoga Instructor in June 2017.

In my practice and in my teaching, I’m all about finding a balance and connection with our mind, body and spirit. I like to be challenged but find a release and opening from within. Expect to move in your body with a mindful connection to your breath to prepare the body to relax. We’ll lead into a seated or supported Shavasana pose to ease into a state of meditation. At each stage of meditation, I will guide you into a deeper state of relaxation through conscious breathing and visualization to cultivate mindfulness. With a conscious mind and relaxed state of being, we’ll then bring our mind and body back to center in a seated pose. Finding a moment of gratitude through meditating on the heart.

I am a native Californian who loves God and yoga (with yoga a close second). I am a local resident of San Dimas, and have been practicing yoga for nearly 10 years. I am certified in Holy Yoga Instruction and registered as a 200-Hour yoga teacher, and certified Revelation Wellness Fitness Instructor, which is a cardio based workout regimen. Outside of teaching yoga, I am a student at Azusa Pacific University in the process of obtaining a teachers credential and masters in Physical Education. Only by the grace of God, I am a mother to my 10-month old daughter, Sofie, and wife to my wonderful husband, Greg.  

In my yoga teaching, I emphasize the connection between the mind, body, and spirit as they are united through the strength and power of Christ Jesus. My approach to teaching is rooted in Christian beliefs to create an authentic opportunity for anyone to experience God’s peace and presence as they move their bodies to encounter Him. A student can expect a gentle yoga practice centered on a biblical verse that serves as the purposeful meditation of the class. My hope is that my teaching is guided by the Holy Spirit. 

All are sincerely welcomed with love and grace!

Skyla

Hi! My name is Skyla. I started practicing yoga 5 years ago and teaching 3 years ago. My personal goal and message I would like to share with anyone I flow with, is to allow your mind, body and soul to intersect and heal itself. I am a heavy believer in holistic medicine and having a holistic lifestyle. Understanding the only true way to heal or progress something is to consistently practice, make new habits, new patterns, and a refurbished lifestyle.
