Founder Of Greenleaf Yoga Studio, Whittier

Frank Magana KRT. RYT.  Spiritually Namend Paviter Singh which means the Lion of God who is pure through and through. Pronounced PA- VIT- ER.

I was inspired as a child by the book, The Complete Illustrated Book of Yoga, by Swami Vishnudevananda. I remember I would flip through the pages and laugh at all the asanas and still do today at times.

As a child I began practicing with no intention. I just knew it felt good and well, that was enough for me. My Yoga practice has taken me to some amazing and still unbelievable heights that I will always cherish. I value and respect my practice out of sheer gratitude for all that it has given me.

I’ve practiced, studied and have been trained in many types of Yoga and have learned they are all great and are packed filled with endless benefits. To me, Yoga is the only one true action that gives back equally “what you put in is what you get out”.

Vinyasa Yoga is where I am today. I teach very intimately and close with the people who visit my studio. I believe that a trust and a connection should be felt while teaching and practicing Yoga, something I learned early on from my first Yoga teacher, a wonderful and colorful person who I hold dearly and continues to be an inspiration.

Sarandeep Singh

My Yoga journey began over 10 Years ago in 110 degree room in Los Angeles Ca. After my first Bikram Yoga Class I knew Yoga was for me. I soon found myself practicing several styles of Yoga Bikram, Hatha, Ashtanga and Iyengar. I soon realized it does not matter what style of Yoga you practice as long as you practice.

Throughout my Yoga journey I have studied and met some wonderful instructors that have helped me expand my Yoga practice. My strongest influences have been Max Strom who has such a gift for teaching Yoga and a wonderful heart and Bikram Choudhury and the 26 hot and strong Yoga Asanas. I still continue cultivating and deepening my daily Yoga practice.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Stephanie Cauffman RYT My yoga journey began in the spring of 2009 here at Greenleaf Yoga Studio. I knew immediately following that first class that yoga would become an important part of my life. I love how yoga creates strength and flexibility in both body and mind, while simultaneously calming the mind and touching the spirit. Now that I have become a certified instructor, I am excited to begin teaching at the very place that ignited my passion for yoga.

 

Diana Marquez RYT. I began practicing yoga for its physical benefits, and along the way I have gained that and so much more.  The practice of yoga has opened up my mind, body, and heart to receive and to give strength, peace, and love. Yoga continues to surprise me, it is a never ending journey in which I continue to learn, grow, and evolve. As a teacher I hope to guide my students to receive what they need from the practice of yoga.
