Amazing Class. Always teaching me something new!!!
After success in Entertainment and Real Estate careers, Aleyna discovered a passion for Health and Wellness, particularly yoga. She found that her yoga mat became a sanctuary for her when she was going through a particularly hard divorce. After taking her own “Eat/Pray/Love” self exploration journey of sorts to Thailand and Bali, complete with 2 yoga retreats, she realized her passion and drive to further her education, practice and devotion to yoga and upon her return to the states made the decision to pursue her teacher certification. She studied under Claire and Daniel and received her 200 RYT certification from Rising Lotus. Aleyna loved the teacher training program so much that she assisted Claire during the following year's 200 RLY TT program. Through intention, pranayama and asana (and a love for music that has lead to a knack from creating awesome playlists) Aleyna's goal is to have each student leave class feeling renewed and refreshed. Aleyna is energetic and outgoing with an infectious spirit. She is also a certified Holistic Health Coach and self proclaimed vegan chef. In her off time, Aleyna can usually be found volunteering at animal shelters (trying her best not to take home every animal she comes across), being of service and teaching yoga to incarcerated youth at the Downtown Los Angeles Juvenile Hall, or in her kitchen working on new vegan recipes.
