Becky Yin

 Yoga, Pilates Instructor & Thai Massage Practitioner

Over the years, Becky searched for a form of exercise that married strength, flexibility and cardio.  This search led her to many gyms and various sports. After experimenting with different styles of exercises, Becky stumbled upon the doorsteps of a yoga studio and started her dedicated yoga practices in 2009.  She earned her 200 hour certificate through Yoga Space focusing on Hatha and Vinyasa, and she’s currently taking Advanced Teacher Training at Downward Dog Yoga Center.

Becky has the privilege of studying with Bryan Kest, Seane Corn, Diana Bruni and Marla Meenakshi Joy.  In 2015, she has broadened her horizons and engaged in direct study with Gymnastic Bodies and Agatsu Inc.  Inspired by all she gained from her strength training education, Becky’s class blends strength, mobility and mindfulness.

“What I like most about yoga is that there’s never an ‘end’, the student who can do a headstand has just as much to learn as the student who can’t touch his/her toes.” – Becky

especially the mindfulness, slow and static practice of Yin yoga and restorative yoga, where she found
her true passion.

Mallory Cheung

Barre & Pilates Instructor

Mallory was a ballerina for most of her life and was examined and passed by the Royal Academy of Dance at the Advanced Foundation level. She also competed and placed in both national and international competitions.

Over the years, Mallory has practiced yoga and Pilates and was trained in the East to West Pilates Instructor course. She unsurprisingly fell in love at the barre again and is certified by BootyBarre. Mallory enjoys barre for its ballet foundation and how it incorporates cardio, strengthening and flexibility into one great workout.

Ballet is often viewed as an exclusive practice that has to begin at an early age. She enjoys teaching barre as it is an open workout that shares components of ballet with every age group. Her classes always incorporate a dancer’s experience, but with high tempo music and a great energy, you can expect a fun full body workout. She loves stretching and helping clients in improving their flexibility and learning to stretch safely.

“Ballet is the art, barre is its workout.”

Rocio Castillo

Yoga Instructor

In a sudden twist of fate, Rocio found herself in the beautiful jungles of Ubud, where she
completed her 200 hour YTT training. Coming from a social work background, Rocio brings
with her the lessons of forgiveness, compassion and new beginnings.
A long-time lover and student of the yogic practice, Rocio has experienced, first hand, the value
and power of meditation and the peace and clarity it gives.
Her classes focus on connecting with the breath and surrendering to the present moment.

“You must understand the whole of life, not just one little part of it. That is why you must read,
that is why you must look at the skies, that is why you must sing and dance, and write poems and
suffer and understand, for all that is life.” – J. Krishnamurti
