Rachel (she/her)Yoga Instructor
I took my first yoga class in 2016 out of sheer curiosity. It slowly became a daily practice and eventually led me to complete a teacher training program in San Francisco. I love that through movement and breathwork, we can build strength, sharpen focus, and cultivate presence. Let’s meet on the mat.
Jamie (he/him)Fitness Instructor
Meet Jamie. A cool, quiet dude, he’s pretty new to the climbing world but enjoys it to the max. He grew up playing multiple sports like basketball, track and field, and football. You might say he’s a fitness enthusiast willing to try different things. He’s currently studying kinesiology at City College of San Francisco.
David (he/him)Fitness Instructor
David Lester, an avid climber and certified personal trainer, grew up in Florida and discovered climbing at a young age while participating in Cub Scouts. He spent his summers climbing in Northeast Tennessee on real rock which was a nice break from the gym in Florida. As an adult, he travels all over the U.S. climbing at different crags and gyms.
Compounding his love for climbing, David also loves physical fitness and sees value in doing one to supplement or complement the other. He frequently seeks additional education and has worked with some of the leading influencers in the climbing fitness niche such as Steve Bechtel, Tyler Nelson, and Natasha Barnes. He is currently a Climbing Coach at Dogpatch Boulders and continues down the path of achieving his own fitness and climbing goals with the knowledge he learns along the way.
Natalya (she/her)Yoga Instructor
Natalya Suttmiller has been practicing yoga for the past eight years as a healing modality. While honoring the traditions of yoga, her practice is an invitation to inquire about our own unique anatomy and discover the sensations that come along with that. She received her yoga teacher training education at Yoga Garden SF, and continues her education in other somatic practices. She also has a B.S. in Anthropology and works as a freelance writer and photographer when she’s not moving or teaching yoga.
Sophia (she/her)Yoga Instructor
Sophia is a Bay Area local and feels spoiled to call San Francisco home. Growing up as a ballet dancer, she became interested in utilizing yoga as a cross-training discipline and started practicing yoga in 2010. She received her 200hr RYT in 2018 and has a particular interest in the holistic approach and harmonization of the mind, body, and spirit through movement and nutrition. She is a lover of the outdoors, finding tasty bites, and backpacking. When she’s not in the studio, you can most likely find her on the mountain biking trails of Marin or cooking up yet another batch of concentrate for her homemade spicy chai lattes.
