This class is highly encouraged for all.

Jesselle Peña
Owner

Jesselle learned her first asanas from her mother—a bona fide Humboldt County hippie—and began to delve into her own practice when diagnosed with scoliosis as a teenager. Drawn to health and healing from an early age, she studied nursing before completing a 200 hour certification program at The Yoga Shack with Tommy and Lori Anderson. Her training gave her a firm grounding in the science of yoga while still embracing the softer spiritual side. She now strives to give this balance to others and help them along their own path of health and wellness. Her teaching style is colored by her playful energy and her belief that yoga is for everyone.

Stacie Reeve
Instructor

Stacie tried yoga with the intention of improving her flexibility after years of swimming, biking and running. The more she practiced yoga asanas the more she found freedom in her hamstrings, hips, and shoulders — and most importantly, in her life. She embraced the opportunity to live with the flow of ever-changing currents, to pause and breathe, and to see with the vision of friendliness. Stacie received her 500 hour teacher training from YogaWorks in Santa Monica in 2008 and continues to build her practice on that foundation. Every day she learns from her teachers, students, family and friends and, at the same time, has lots of fun, too.

 

Niccola Nelson
Instructor

Niccola is a student and teacher of the Ashtanga Yoga method as taught to her by the late Sri K. Pattabhi Jois in Mysore, India. She has been studying and practicing in this tradition since 2004 and is excited to bring her love of Ashtanga to the California Central Coast. Niccola is a passionate teacher who approaches yoga in a fun, unique and non-competitive way. She firmly believes in the benefits of a committed, daily yoga practice and hopes to inspire you to find your own path.


Ryah Cooley
Instructor

Ryah first fell in love with yoga while taking Jeff Porter's invigorating vinyasa classes years ago in San Luis Obispo. As a writer and constant questioner, she welcomes the calm and quiet that yoga brings into her life and seeks to help her students turn off that nagging little voice inside their heads. Ryah has a movement background in gymnastics and aerial dance. She completed her yoga teacher training at Harmony House with Kelly Metcalf in 2015.

Garnet Brittiny
INSTRUCTOR

I grew up here on the central coast my whole life.  Alternative healing has always been a true passion for me.  It only seemed to fit perfectly when I took my first yoga class at the age of 15. For what started as a way to relax and calm anxiety, has turned into a lifelong journey of getting to know my true self.  Embracing the romance of the world around us is what I hope to teach you. In my classes you can expect to be nurtured and protected during this sacred practice.

Luana Knowlton 
INSTRUCTOR

Luana literally fell into yoga when she injuring her knee and shoulder – and her pride. As she struggled to come to terms with her body, an inner voice whispered “YOGA”. Within six months, she lost weight, gained muscle and found flexibility and balance. Luana’s upbeat personality, calming presence, and kindness will encourage you to listen to the subtle messages of your body to safely work the edges of your strength, flexibility, and energy while deepening your sense of peace and balance. Her classes are suitable for practitioners of all levels, providing detailed instruction and modifications where needed.

In 2014 Nicole did her 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training with Ganga White and Tracey Rich at the White Lotus Foundation in Santa Barbara.Yoga began as an activity and form of exercise for Nicole, but transpired into a way ofliving life. Nicole truly believes yoga has something to offer everyone and is excited to share her love of the practice! 

VANESSA VENEGAS
INSTRUCTOR

Vanessa began practicing yoga at the age of 18. Despite being intimidated to step into a studio, she joined Harmony House in Pismo Beach, falling in love with the feeling of warmth and acceptance in the yoga community. After three years of practicing, she earned 200-hour certification from Kelly Metcalf. Her practice has sparked her interest in health and the body-mind connection. Her personal mantra reminds her and her students that "yoga is both on and off the mat."

Jessica Daem
INSTRUCTOR

Jessica initially began a serious yoga practice while trying to heal from an injury. During the process she noticed vast differences in her mental well being. A trauma survivor, Jess found relief and energetic release from once debilitating panic attacks and migraines which to her, is the most remarkable experience yet. She began with Bikrim yoga which she practiced for a total of four years before Taking Meg Whitney’s 200 hour yoga teacher training, and is currently working towards a five hundred hour certification with LEVITyoga's Peter Stereos. Jess teaches restorative, gentle, and mixed level yoga. No matter what yoga she teaches Jess encourages that a connection with self is essential to healing.
