Kaycee Morganto

Kaycee is new to the bay, having relocated in 2022 from Texas. She has a 200Hr YTT Certification and 50Hr Certification in Yoga Sculpt. Her intention with teaching is to provide a space where students can learn to communicate with their own bodies. She believes that yoga is for literally every form of the human body, and wants to inspire those in her classes to believe the same.

 

Kaycee began her yoga journey in 2015, partly in an attempt to cope with her senior level engineering projects in her last year of college. In the beginning, Kaycee was drawn to strength and power based class formats such as power vinyasa and yoga sculpt. Over her 8 years of experience practicing and teaching yoga, her practice has turned much more inward, allowing her to use these same powerful strength based learnings and apply them to the nuances of slower, deeper classes in the yin style. She frequently uses the meditation techniques of noting, visualization, and body scan throughout her classes to help remind students to breathe and stay in their body. She is a classically trained musician, and takes pride in the music that she curates for her playlists.

 

Off the mat, Kaycee is a mechanical engineer, dog lover, hiker, snowboarder, mountain biker, and wannabe aerialist.

Mhairi Scallion

Mhairi Started teaching Vinyasa Yoga in 2015.
She started her yoga journey back in 2000 and has realized this is the practice that elevates her life the most. After suffering from PTSD and anxiety for many years she overcame both from the yoga practice and meditation.


She decided to dive deeper into the practice and get her 200 YTT Certification in 2015 quickly after going into a 50 hour extension mentorship program at Worlds yoga as well as mentoring other new teachers. In 2016 she got her certification in the prison project yoga program that involves more intense training learning to guide postures and meditation in different non based studio environments.

Wendy Loven

Wendy started practicing yoga in 2003 in order to help her body recover from a back injury. She soon discovered that yoga was good for so much more than healing back pain, it helped in all areas of life, from reducing stress to building strength to helping relieve lifelong traumas stored in the subtle body. This created an ever-evolving path to mindfulness.

In 2013, Wendy completed the 200 hour training at Namah Shivaya International School of Yoga in Dallas, Texas and in 2015, she completed the 300 hour training - with additional certifications in Yin Yoga, Restorative Yoga and Yoga Nidra. Wendy loves introducing new students to the benefits of yoga and helping others find their balance, strength and flexibility both on and off the mat. Wendy's yoga teacher encouraged her to examine all the ways that a yoga teacher can serve others and she lives by the philosophy that the best way to raise yourself up is to lift those around you

Stephenie Williams

Stephenie started her yoga journey in 2012, after being introduced to the practice through fitness videos during high school gym class. She was immediately drawn to the sense of relaxation and meditative release that yoga offered. 

 

Over the years as the demands of life increased, the dedication to her yoga practice also increased. For Stephenie, yoga is a practice of being in the now, about being completely in the present moment. When pulled out of the mind and settled into the body, all else falls away. The physical practice of yoga itself is a meditation, a journey to acceptance and allowing everything to just be. 

 

After many years of practice and searching for a yoga teacher training, Stephenie finally completed her 200-Hour YTT in the Summer of 2022 through the EkaShri Schools of Yoga. Trained in the style of Vinyasa Krama, Stephenie structures her classes in a step by step format that combines both strength and flexibility while offering modifications to maintain accessibility for all. Expect movement, breath, and meditation for an energizing and uplifting class. 

 

Off the mat you can find Stephenie drawing, reading, spending time in the garden, cooking something up in the kitchen, or going kayaking and camping around California.

Carmela_pink_salt_wellness

Carmela Carvajal

Carmela began practicing yoga after college, when her desk job in publishing left her longing for movement. Taking her first yoga class, she sensed the profound connection of body and mind, united through the breath. The message of self-acceptance and equanimity she found on her mat felt like coming home.

 

So many practices later, Carmela finds that the steadiness, self-trust and non-judgmental nature of yoga have informed every aspect of her life. In 2005, she became a certified Rolfer® and licensed massage therapist. The following year, she completed her 200-hour yoga teacher training through Yogaworks. Bodywork and teaching yoga allow Carmela to offer dual paths toward physical opening and ease, as well as tools to ground and balance the mind.

 

Carmela’s yoga teaching honors the idea of “mindful flow.” She strives to help students understand the classic aspects of each pose while finding their own unique and intuitive expression through movement. She has been fortunate to draw inspiration from master teachers such as Jason Crandall, Annie Carpenter, Ana Forrest, Shiva Rea and Jane Austin, as well as myriad local teachers who’ve enriched her idea of what yoga can be. Carmela strives to teach from a place that’s accessible and welcome to all, while offering plenty of challenge and space to play. She delights in seeing students personally connect to their practice and begin to experience yoga’s power to support and inspire their lives.
