Guest Instructors

We take the needs of our students very seriously, and thus have very high standards in the teachers we choose to lead classes. The following guest instructors have completed the Lotus Blossom Teacher Training program with flying colors and we are confident in their teaching skills.

Adrienne Johnson

Adrienne is a former school teacher turned yoga teacher, who believes that yoga is an individual, unique expression. To Adrienne, yoga is a very personal journey, full of curiosity, discovery and perception. She honors the individual in her classes, and encourages students to find their own awareness of the mind, body and spirit during asana practice. In her class you will find a nice balance of vinyasa flow, guided by breath, mixed with times for rejuvenation and reflection. She holds her 200-hour certification and is currently working towards her 500-hour and RPYT (Registered Prenatal Yoga Teacher).

Isha teaches prenatal yoga and vinyasa yoga. Her classes strike a balance between calming and energizing movements, taught at a pace where one moves from one pose to another with deliberate attention. She encourages her students to challenge their bodies, and to recognize when to move more gently. Isha received her yoga training at Yoga Source in Los Gatos, focusing primarily on Vinyasa-style yoga with an emphasis on proper alignment, breath, and effective sequencing. She completed her prenatal teacher training through Lotus Blossom. Isha’s love of movement extends beyond yoga: she enjoyed dancing ballet for many years, and she is a personal trainer and fitness instructor. Helping others develop a healthy and active lifestyle is her goal. Isha has a graduate degree in Psychology with an emphasis in Behavioral Science. She created intervention plans to help individuals with disabilities develop their skills. Isha is originally from the Philippines. She is a mom to a curious and active toddler.

 

Supinda Sirihekaphong

Supinda has been exploring Hatha yoga ever since a friend invited her to her first yoga class at Jivamukti in NYC in 2010. Supinda’s yoga practice has helped her find balance and clarity between her internal and external environment by providing a safe space for investigation and intention setting, leading to a deeper sense of strength, stability and serenity.

After a successful 15 year career in the nonprofit sector and higher education, she found her calling in supporting growing families by becoming a birth doula, which led Supinda to complete a 200-hour yoga teacher training with Breathe for Change and a prenatal yoga teacher training with Lotus Blossom.

Supinda is dedicated to helping both novices and long-time practitioners of mindfulness practices, (re)discover their capacity to rise up, find balance and overcome daily life challenges or life changing events such as childbirth.
