Foundations 4 Chakra Intro


This class is taught by:

Katy Impellizzeri

Katy fell in love with yoga after floating out of her first savasana. She has always been intrigued by the elaborate systems that make up the human body along with it’s deep connection to the mind, breath, and soul. Physical asana practice and meditation opened windows and doors in her mind that she never even knew existed. That, and her natural tendency to ask ‘why?’, led to her first 200-hour teacher training where she began to dive deeper into the practice and her Self.

Now a certified E-RYT 500 teacher, she shares her perspective in public & private yoga classes and workshops all over the country. She also volunteers her time teaching kids of all ages and walks of life in schools and community centers.

Forever a student, Katy hopes to inspire anyone and everyone (in her class or not) to discover their full potential and live a life full of happiness, health, peace and love.

Always enjoy good vibes and good beats in her strong & steady vinyasa classes and her grounding yin classes. Flirt with the connection between breath and movement to maybe discover some hidden doors and windows of your own…

Sarah Helt, E-RYT200
Certified Yoga Instructor + Accessible Yoga Ambassador

My yoga journey began at 18 when a friend suggested I try a class at the local gym. It happened to be an Ashtanga primary series and from that day forward I was hooked! However, it wasn’t until my last year of college, when my clowning and movement studies professor asked if I would assist his summer yoga intensive, that I started to consider teaching.

My initial 200 hour yoga training was in Canggu, Bali, Indonesia in multi-style vinyasa, viniyoga, and incorporated thai massage. I began my yoga career in Chicago, Illinois where, in my first two years, I was lucky enough to help open five different boutique yoga spaces. Primarily a power vinyasa and restorative-yin yoga teacher, my life changed completely when I was contacted by a high profile triathlon coach to work with her disabled athletes. I was introduced to the true therapeutic benefits of yoga for recovery, pain management, and trauma. I work with students who have, and have had, cerebral palsy, traumatic brain injuries, amputations, visual impairments, spinal chord injury, chronic pain, and/or nerve damage. Last year I partnered with the Accessible Yoga Movement in Santa Barbara to become one of the organization’s first Accessible Yoga Ambassadors.

I approach life with an open heart and zero expectations; as I believe you should approach every yoga class. I am overjoyed to share my practice with you. Come play!

Tessa Rapa

Tessa Rapaczynski's approach to yoga is pluralistic and non-dogmatic. While her practice is rooted in the Ashtanga and Iyengar yoga traditions, her methodology is influenced by modern science, as well as both Eastern and Western philosophy.

Tessa believes that yoga is a practice of self-study by experience, and considers herself a life-long student. Introduced to yoga at a young age, she has practiced over the years at studios in NYC, London, Berlin, and LA where Tessa completed her 200 Hour Teacher Training course at Hot 8 Yoga. She is a graduate of Columbia University, and holds an MA in Modernist English Literature from Oxford.

Alex Nashton

Alex completed her 500 Hour Certification at ISHTA Yoga under the guidance of Yogiraj Alan Finger, apprenticing Yogiraj Mona Anand. This training was the catalyst for an overwhelming love of neuroscience, and specifically, a curiosity for neuroplasticity, the brain’s ability to rewire itself. Her personal research in this field has brought her to an abundant source of hope for the human race to change the way we relate to ourselves and others by changing the thoughts in our head. Alex's practice and teaching is now informed by the relationship between yoga, meditation, and refined change on a cellular level. Her teaching harnesses the evolving nature of the human mind so that students can empower themselves to change their own personal reality. She currently lives in Santa Monica, California where she is pursuing a degree in Neuroscience.
