Classes

Ayelet Even-Nur has been a dedicated student of traditional Ashtanga Yoga since 2004. After intensive study with local teachers in Chicago, she traveled to Kovalom and Mysore, India to continue her studies with Lino Miele and Sharath Rangaswamy, grandson of the late Sri K. Pattabhi Jois. Ayelet began teaching Mysore style in NYC, while daily assisting John Campbell at Pure Yoga. Ayelet has continued to study with many other senior Ashtanga teachers, and counts herself most influenced and inspired by Richard Freeman and Mary Taylor, John Campbell, Dena Kingsberg and Maty Ezraty. Ayelet's teaching is directly inspired by her own experience of the transformative potential of practice. Within the Ashtanga Vinyasa system, she focuses on anatomical precision and breath awareness in an effort to make the Mysore practice accessible and sustainable for all levels of practitioners.

Rulik
Rulick teaches a dynamic style of Hatha Yoga, emphasizing the qualities of awareness and meditation in the practice. In May 2006, he began leading a free weekly Ashtanga Vinyasa class in a warehouse in downtown San Francisco. Seeing his friends become passionate about the practice was the most satisfying experience for him. Rulick received his first formal yoga teacher training certification from Piedmont Yoga Studio where he studied with teachers who drew their lineage from
the Iyengar tradition. Ever committed to the healing and nurturing sides of yoga, Rulick helps his students to transcend their limits and guide them into the unknown. Being a mountain climber and a back-country skier, he sees the benefits of applying both the physical and mental aspects of yoga practice to the “extreme” hobbies. Learn more about Rulick's teaching at www.rulick.com.
 
I began my yoga practice in 1995. I trained as a traditional yoga teacher with the Piedmont Advanced Studies Program in 2009, as a slackline yoga teacher with YogaSlackers.com in 2011, and as an acrobatic yoga teacher with AcroYoga.org in 2012. I like to bring elements of yoga into all movement. My classes focus on conditioning to build strength, flexibility, and balance in a shared practice working in groups. After decades as a sedentary computer programmer, I enjoy the balance that comes with yoga, slacklining, and acro.

Raven 

I have been a student of yoga since 1997, and received my teaching certification from Integral Yoga Institute in February of 2003.  I teach an accessible, yet sometimes challenging, form of Hatha yoga, appropriate for beginners and those looking to slow down and go deeper.  In my classes there is an emphasis on breathing and unwinding, while also building strength and flexibility.  I encourage each person to move at the pace of their own slow, deep breath.  (This is different from the quicker vinyasa styles, where the breath is intentionally sped up to build heat).  And after we move and breathe and stretch and strengthen, we sit.  The seated meditation practice offers the opportunity to be still, if even for a few minutes,  allowing the effects of the entire practice to really seep in to the consciousness.  My students tell me they appreciate my clear and precise instructions and ability to convey  the teachings of Hatha yoga with humor and kindness.
