Kevin Hauber

His teaching style is compassionate and meditative with an emphasis on deep releases and openings of the body. He encourages students to find the areas of resistance in their bodies and use breath and patience as tools for healing. For more info on Kevin check out his website:  http://www.kevinhauber.com/. 

Deborah Light-Pacheco

Deborah has always been a fan of movement. She began ballet and tap dancing as a child, and continued her interest in dance with course work in modern dance while attending California State University at Northridge where she received a degree in psychology. She briefly considered becoming a dance and movement therapist, but once she completed her psychology degree, shifted her interests to politics and attended law school. Recognizing early on that this shift in interest was not her true dharma, she re-entered the fitness field managing a health and fitness center in Los Angeles and becoming an ACE certified personal trainer. Shortly after certifying as a trainer, she found Yoga and found her home. Yoga has transformed Deborah’s life in so many ways, bringing a peace and tranquility to her that she loves to share with her students. She loves to share her story of “trying” a class one day and walking out feeling as though she were a completely different and whole person for the first time in years. The ability of a practice to bring such contentment and peace was just short of a miracle for Deborah who is a single parent of two special needs children. Deborah loves to share her Yoga experience with others as they journey on their own quest for calm, peace and fulfillment. She also loves to work with “mama’s to be” on their journey through the pregnancy process…a very special time in a woman’s life, by bringing a sense of community and love to women as their bodies change in the creation of a new life and spirit. To that end, she received her prenatal/postnatal yoga certification through the Yoga Alliance. Deborah has studied Yoga with many of today’s well-known and sought after yogi’s including James Brown, Alexandria Crow, Kathryn Budig and Chrissy Canning. She studied pranayama with Peter Sterios and mediation with Rolf Gates. She is certified as an E-RYT200 and RPYT with the Yoga Alliance. She also has earned a B.A. in psychology (emphasis on special needs children and personality disorders).

Marissa Bloom

Marissa Bloom attended her first yoga class in 2006 while completing her undergraduate degree in vocal arts at USC. As a native of San Luis Obispo County, this first foray into the big city of Los Angeles and the overly-competitive life of a performing artist left her completely overwhelmed and searching for something more. Her weekly yoga classes became her safe-haven and grounding support. Since that first class, Marissa has used yoga postures, breathing techniques, and philosophies in her performing life and voice teaching; but, it wasn’t until Marissa returned to the beautiful Central Coast after completing her Master’s degree last year that she became utterly addicted to yoga. In the summer of 2011, Marissa fulfilled her yogic dream by attending Frog Lotus Yoga Immersion Teacher Training in the Berkshires of Massachusetts with an emphasis on Thai Yoga massage and Kirtan chanting. Her teaching style combines a creative and playful flair with strong emphasis on alignment and assists. In addition to teaching yoga classes, Marissa is an opera singer, florist, and voice teacher. You might just hear her soft singing during savasana.

A purposeful practice of supported yoga postures for the lower back, hips and legs to release deep-seated muscular tension and habitual ways of holding our bodies. Expect use lots of props.
