Meet The Instructors

Ariela has been enjoying yoga for the past fourteen years since passing out during her first hot yoga class in Cape Town, South Aftrican in 2009. Enthusiasm led to dedication, and in early 2020 she completed her 200-hour yoga teacher training. In 2021, she began offering weekly yoga classes at the Recovery Café, and has additionally worked with individuals to create personalized yoga routines for somatic processing of trauma. Ariela's aim is to provide inclusive, accessible classes that are real-time customized for participants.
She believes that yoga is for everyone.
