Bikram Yoga is often seen as a healing experience for both the body and the mind. However, Elena Rabinovitch seeks to teach her students that it is so much more than that. As she uses the practice to strengthen her own control over her own multifaceted past experiences: those that weave through the corporate world, where she was a CPA; her home, where she is a wife and a mother of two; and her daily life, where she adjusts daily to the challenges of Rheumatoid Arthritis. Elena sees Bikram Yoga as a holistically healing experience. She believes that the practice will heal not only one’s body and mind, but if they are willing: their relationships, their outlook on life, their emotional strength, and whatever else her students will bring into the yoga studio.

Brian has been a practitioner of yoga since 1997 and Bikram yoga since April 2010 and knew from the first class he was hooked. He first practiced at Bikram Yoga East Harlem in New York City where he quickly became a regular. After 80 consecutive days practicing, the studio owner asked if he would be interested in becoming a teacher. Fall 2010 brought Brian to San Diego, CA to take part in the 9 week intensive Bikram training. With only 5 months of practice under his belt this proved itself to be both a challenging and rewarding experience. 

In 2016, Hot Pilates training brought a whole new set of skills to Brian’s teaching repertoire and he immediately loved combining his love of fitness and music together to create engaging, high energy classes. This ultimately helped him create his own system that he now trains others to do as well as teaches where ever he is!

My yoga journey began back when I was in college and also working a physical job. My shoulders and knees would hurt a lot… I was busy but I was stressed out, all the time. I was really lucky to find a studio nearby with such awesome teachers. It was one day, the story began, I was running some random errands and saw some cool people walking in a hot yoga studio. Looked cool, I thought. So I decided to give it a go. It was amazing. So hot. Near death experience hot. But they told me to just stay and breathe. I’m glad I did because at the end it was completely exhilarating. Melting into my towel and mat at the end, after all the asanas and breathing exercises, all my aches and pain disappeared. I felt I could focus better. I was instantly interested. How in the world did that work? What? It was like magic. I was amazed. Ever since, I’m continuously on the search to understand it. Every day I look forward to sharing and practicing what I learned from my teachers. I graduated Bikram Yoga Teacher Training class of Fall 2015, completed two Esak Garcia JFC trainings, several Mary Jarvis workshops, and hold bachelor’s of science from Florida International University.

Kym Klein is a pioneer as a yoga & Pilates instructor with a demonstrated history of working in the health, wellness, and fitness industry. She founded the Kym Klein Method, a unique approach centered around the invigorating power that fitness offers the mind, body, and spirit. She believes finding that connection helps create vitality, increases willpower, and enhances the capacity to bear stress.
Klein developed K2Core™ (formerly known as Core45), a full-body, mat-based, high-intensity, low impact routine combining Pilates, high intensity interval training, resistance/weight training,
and yoga moves in a heated room where temperatures can soar to 98 degrees Fahrenheit. This customized fitness class sculpts lean muscle, builds strength, and burns fat while moving participants through a journey of empowerment. It is designed to offer seasoned exercisers a new challenge, while providing those new to exercise an opportunity to see quick results. Klein pairs this accessible, intense and efficient class with upbeat, motivating music. Klein’s Power Yoga was created using various styles of the ancient practice, ultimately emphasizing Vinyasa’s dance-like sensibility. In Klein’s class, students experience the importance of integrating the spiritual and philosophical teachings of yoga with mindful synchronized breath and movement. Klein prides herself on making her yoga classes accessible for everyone. She offers a slow and deep practice for beginners, yet challenges even the most advanced students. Her mission is to create space for students to leave feeling stronger, more flexible, balanced, and uplifted, and to ultimately find freedom and resonance in their bodies and lives.

Sheila Sager began her Bikram Yoga practice, June 2009, to rehabilitate her knee after having surgery.  She used Bikram Yoga as a tool  to restore full range of motion to her knee and noticed the physical and emotional benefits of the practice right away. She has always known deep in her heart, that her purpose in life is to help people heal themselves. After completing her Teacher Training in the spring of 2010 she immediately became a full-time Bikram teacher. Since then she has earned certifications in Health Coaching, Yin Yoga, Vinyasa, PyroPilates, Pregnancy, Advanced and Intermediate Series from the Bikram Yoga lineage.
Having healed her body from injuries ranging from a meniscus tear to ruptured and herniated discs and sciatica, Sheila believes in using yoga and proper holistic health education to improve mind, body and spirit. Every day brings a new experience.  Sharing the incredible health benefits of Yoga and Pilates is fulfilling to Sheila. She loves her yoga life and takes joy in watching people grow as they practice.
