Diane Bradley

Hey! My name is Diane Bradley, and I am a certified 200-hour Yoga Instructor. I received my 200 YTT in October 2018 in Carlsbad, California. I began my yoga journey 12 years ago during a time I could not run due to an injury. During that first class, with the help of an amazing teacher, I began to slow my body down, and my mind soon followed. Since this class I knew I needed yoga to be a consistent part of my life. I chose to enroll in YTT with the intention of learning how to teach and share my experiences and the transformation that yoga has brought to my life. As a teacher I wish to express what

Caitlin Craig

Caitlin is trained in Hatha yoga and has been teaching since 2016. ‘I love all forms of the physical practice of yoga & currently resonate most deeply with Kundalini Yoga due to its challenging & structured nature. I find the movements liberating & enjoy how the benefits can be felt instantaneously. I am grateful to have a foundation in the traditions of the practice. I would say I have a passion for good form & the more subtle aspects of the yoga experience. To be able to guide us to a state of total immersion & embodiment is the goal.'

My name is Karey and I am excited to guide you in your journey of wellness & mindfulness through the practice of yoga.  I come from a dance background having studied ballet & jazz from a very young age.  After marriage and starting a family, my new found passion was in fitness.  I spent the next 20yrs teaching dance aerobics and functional fitness.  Yoga found its way into my life after many years of strenuous exercise and wear and tear on my joints & muscles. Searching for a new way to slow down not only my body but also my mind.  My strong love & passion for yoga called me to guide others through the practice. Aromatherapy is incorporated into all my classes to uplift and send positive energy to the emotional center of our beings.  Namaste

Hello, my name is Chris Bennett, owner and teacher at Amalaya Yoga. I fell in love with Yoga after a difficult life event. It provided a much needed sense of community and discipline. Learning a practice that engaged my mind, body and spirit was just the medicine I needed. With an earlier experience in martial arts, yoga felt so natural to me. 

Yoga is where I met my wife and the love of my life Karla.  When the opportunity arose for us to create Amalaya Yoga, it felt like such an easy decision.  Training under Beth Evans was a wonderful experience and gave me the confidence to continue the tradition of teaching Yoga.  Join me for one of my hot classes to have incredible experience, improving your physical health, and to bring more peace to your life.

Hi friends, I’m Monique Day. I have always been a lover of all things movement. Early on, I dedicated myself to classical ballet, jazz, hip-hop dance, even gymnastics and cheerleading. As the years unfolded, my dance background seamlessly evolved into a more functional and mindful approach to movement: yoga. In October 2017, I achieved my 200-hour certification at Island Yoga in Aruba. Guided by the expertise of Lara Heimann and Rachel Brathen, I honed my skills and deepened my understanding of the intricate connection between body, heart and mind.
