Elias Gaitan

True for You Yoga

Elias Gaitan began his journey with Hatha Yoga in the early 90’s. He began his practice using the book ‘Bikram’s Beginning Yoga Class’ and a ‘Baron Baptiste’s Power Yoga’ video. A life-long trained competitive athlete and a surfer, Elias’ body was already showing serious signs of breaking down, it need help. Elias discovered that Yoga offered deep healing benefits to a body and mind that was locked in a state of chronic stress. He experienced a palpable sense of liberation. Yoga became his physical practice, and meditation, which led him to his first yoga teacher training and certification, Bikram’s Beginning Yoga in 2003.

The Dailey Method - Santa Rosa

Jessica owns and manages The Dailey Method, Santa Rosa. She was first introduced to The Dailey Method by a friend in 2003 and was soon hooked. After practicing for more than 10 years she is still in love with The Dailey Method. Why? Because it works. It’s an intelligent and efficient way to change your body. It’s safe. It’s fun!

Ryan Parker

CrossFit NorthGate

Ryan grew up just outside of Philadelphia and played team sports throughout his youth. Even though he played Lacrosse into college, team sports never resonated with him as much as solo pursuits. By age 15, he had competed in his first mountain bike race and was hooked on cycling. That passion for cycling eventually led him to Boulder, Colorado where he was able to test himself against some of the best cyclists in the country. It was during his time in Colorado that he also began racing triathlons, and went on to compete in every distance including ironman. Ryan walked into a CrossFit gym five years ago and never looked back. He loves the ability to maintain such a high level of fitness while improving strength – a foreign concept for a die-hard endurance athlete! At the same time, he... Read the profile >>

Love at first sweat, in 1996 Shannan Donovan wandered into a hot yoga class that set in motion a journey still unfolding.

From Bikram, she continued adding to her Yoga Alliance hours, and her style,... Read the profile >>
