Elisa’s passion for yoga began in 2010. After she attended her first vinyasa flow class, she was hooked.
As her passion for yoga grew, so did her interest in the fundamentals of teaching yoga.
She completed her 200 hr yoga training and started teaching shortly after. Her reward for teaching others yoga is to see their personal growth with a solid yin and yang yoga practice.
Her classes incorporate breath to breath mindful movements to build strength, flexibility, and balance for students of all levels.
Anastasia discovered yoga through climbing in 2016 and became attracted to the practice right away.
She firmly believes that there is no destination in yoga, it is rather a process and a continuous journey to your true self through yoga asanas and pranayama.
She was introduced to the Vasa The Studio in 2018 where her practice kept growing. She didn’t hesitate when the opportunity of completing a 200 hour teacher training with Chelsea and Lisa came along. The journey was just about to begin!
She realized that connecting body movement with the breath can help release daily stresses, and as a new teacher she deeply weaves them into her classes.
Her teaching designed to give students the techniques to understand their own unique body’s needs, build new connections, and continue to find the center of themselves each time they step on their mats.
You will see lots of power and endurance focused moves and fun transitions. Her classes are an invitation to stay lighthearted with the practice and to allow oneself be playful and curious.

Her goal is to build our awareness to the foundation and alignment to ensure a safe practice as well as provoke mindfulness and gratitude to the body.
She hopes her teachings allow students to leave feeling better than they arrived. Always looking to continue her education, Rachell is currently 500 hour certified.

Val wants you to leave her class knowing that you were appropriately challenged while simultaneously listening to your body. She also wants you to walk out with a calmer, clearer mind.
She was first introduced to yoga in 2002, where she quickly learned that yoga was so much more than a physical practice. It helped her find relief and release during times of stress and anxiety.
Her love for yoga only increased over the years. In 2014, she enrolled in Travis Eliot and Daniel Head’s 200-hour holistic yoga teacher training program. She slowly transitioned from working in marketing full-time to teaching full-time, in hopes of sharing the many benefits of yoga.
