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.
Rachell has been practicing yoga since 2010 after leaving the life of an athlete due to injuries.
After falling in love with the practice, she took her first teacher training and decided she wanted to share the gift that yoga brought into her life with others.
With her experience, Rachell aims to bring a sense of empowerment to each of her classes through intention, breath, and movement.
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.

Tiffany is a 200 hour registered yoga instructor. She began her yoga journey in 2007 as a means to help ease her anxiety & depression symptoms. She began yoga in her living room. It wasn’t perfect, she didn’t even have a yoga mat at first, just herself- on her carpet, in her tiny apartment & a dvd. She quickly fell in love with not just the physical poses but a connectedness she felt for the first time in her life; with herself. Time & time again, yoga proves to add magic to her self care practice ~ enhancing the quality of her mental health by remembering to breathe, that everything is temporary & by moving with intention our energy can become balanced. As a trauma informed yoga instructor, finishing her training with Zabie Yamasaki, she hopes to help others feel safe & heal as she too learns to ride these unpredictable waves of life.
She studied under Iyengar teachers for 3 years at UCR & began teaching yoga in 2010. She then went on & received her 200-hour Hatha YTT with Western Yoga College in 2013; practicing Mysore-Style Ashtanga with her teacher there but life ebbs & it flows… so she took a break teaching for awhile as life transitioned. She completed another 200-hour YTT in 2021 at Vasa the Studio just to ignite her practice again & she’s been back teaching ever since!
She always strives to create a welcoming vibe to any & ALL who come to class - no matter what. Building heat but reminding to find the feel good in class & focus on progress not perfection by keeping a sense of playfulness.
