Reboot Yoga


This class is taught by:

Sera Melini

Sera has been a grateful student of Yoga and Ayurveda for many years. She has been blessed with teachers who have searched classically for the patterns of the Universe and Spirit. Her studies and experiences in the realms of Yoga, Mantra, and Ayurveda all serve to assist in increasing depth, sensitivity, and simplicity in ways that both utilize and increase grace and observation.

Some of her teachers include, Andrey Lappa of Universal Yoga, Kula Yoga Project, Sankalpah College of Yoga (Yoga), Sadhvi Abha Saraswatiji and Raghunath Cappo (Mantra), Vaidya Ravi of Poonthottam Ayurvedasram, the California College of Ayurveda, and BCD (Ayurveda). Her teachers of touch include those at Sunshine School (Chiang Mai, Thailand) and Ohm (Omsala Chiang Mai, Thailand) for the wisdom of Thai Massage and Chi Nei Tsang.

Each of her teachers has forever moved her to be more observant, respectful, humble, and sincere - qualities ever present in yoga and its teachings.

In classes we will focus on the science behind the relationships between the body, the mind, and their bridges . We are concerned with the flow of prana, how and where it moves and does not move in posture, in nadi, with consciousness. Using the paradigms of Ha-tha Yoga and Ayurveda we will explore our capacity to be both strong and flexible, moving and still, Ha and Tha, and of course, migrating in the direction of steady appreciation and awareness.

Chelsea Leiby

Chelsea began dancing around the age of 4 and didn’t stop until she was in her early 20’s. She decided to stop and focus on her studies to become a special education teacher. Teaching individuals with special needs and emotional disturbances began to take a toll on Chelsea, and she found it hard not to take her work home. She then enrolled in yoga to help her deal with the stress and emotional drainage. Yoga helped her immensely and opened her eyes to a beautiful journey she was so excited to embark on. She began using her yoga practices throughout her day and even with her students. She found peace in everything she did, and attributes it to yoga. After a few years of consistent practice, Chelsea decided to become a yoga teacher. She wanted to help share the magic of yoga with everyone. She received her yoga certification through our very own Smiling Dog Yoga studio under Roxy Banta and J Gabriel. Chelsea has a great passion for people and yoga and is so excited to share that with students at Smiling Dog. When she is not practicing yoga, Chelsea likes to spend time with her family. She loves the beach and you can find her in Avila just about every weekend with her husband and smiling dog, Oliver.
