our instructors

Years before we had a glamorous mega-studio, we were in a small, humble, space downtown yet our classes had waiting lists for months in advance. These guys are the reason why.

Crissy Alesii Vinyasa Basics

Crissy Alesii

Crissy started her yoga practice in 2001. She just graduated from college and had started her first job. She found an Iyengar yoga class near her new home and decided to give it a try. She found that it helped keep her mind still and her stress down. As an added bonus she also felt stronger and more open. She loved it and hasn’t stopped practicing yoga since. Throughout the years her practiced changed, Crissy moved from Iyengar to Bikram then to Power/Vinyasa. Crissy first started teaching yoga to her students in her first and second grade classrooms. The children loved it, and Crissy loved watching their body’s naturally fall into the different poses. In 2006 she decided to complete YogaSource’s 200 hour Power teacher training led by Linda McGrath. Crissy has since taught children classes, family classes, and adult classes. She loves them all. “I love seeing different people, different bodies find their pose. It’s one of my favorite things about teaching.”

Kim Anderson Bikram

Kim Anderson

Kim began her life-chainging journey into yoga in 2003 when she began practicing Bikram at the Los Gatos YogaSource (at the original downtown location). Bikram soon became an addiction for Kim and she maintained a religiously consistent practice. As promised by her yoga mentors, Kim experienced amazing transformations—physically she became stronger (complimenting her natural flexibility) and for the first time in her life, she felt a strong sense of connection with her authentic self, seeing unlimited possibilities both on and off the mat. Kim began teaching Bikram yoga at YogaSource in 2006 and has been teaching the 3:30 p.m. class on Sundays ever since to accommodate her full-time PR and marketing career in the high tech field.

Kim creates a class that is challenging yet encouraging, precise yet fun. Kim incorporates her love of music and understanding that a good music mix can help carry a class from start to finish. She hopes her students find her class to be a refreshing alternative to the standard Bikram class and is filled with gratitude to have the opportunity to guide them through their practice.

Kim completed the YogaSource’s 200-hour power vinyassa teacher training program in 2012. Kim holds double Bachelors of Art degrees in Literature and Economics from the University of California, Santa Cruz.

Carrie Brackin Bikram

Power

Carrie Brackin

Carrie’s love of yoga began when a close friend brought her to her 1st Bikram class. Being a competitive soccer player since the age of 10 she figured yoga would be a simple work out, something on the side to “de-stress” and “meditate.” After that 1st class she was in love, the physical, emotional, mind, body connection was something she had never experienced in any exercise form. Besides loving heat the structured sequence of the Bikram practice was an ideal fit for her. From that point on Carrie has expanded her Yoga practice into different forms including, Anusura, Ashtanga, Vinyasa and Power. While her 1st love is Bikram she is a strong practioner of Power Yoga. She took Yoga Source’s teacher training in 2008 and has been teaching Bikram Yoga ever since. Carrie’s Bikram class consists of strategic music picks to create a general flow from each of the 26 poses. Carrie plans to expand her practice and teaching hours in the coming years. “Yoga has changed my life, my views, my body and mind- I want to be able to share this with my students each and every day.”
Melissa Carlson Hot Pilates Power

Melissa Carlson

 Melissa began practicing yoga in December of 2004 and teaching yoga in September of 2005. She was immediatley drawn to the physicality of the practice not knowing how yoga would ultimately change her life. Her passions are learning about almost anything (with more interest in philosophy, psychology and biology), animals, physical activites, cooking, reading, dancing and trying new things. Melissa just graduated from the Nursing program at SJSU and is currently studying for the NCLEX. She plans on continuing her education to become a nurse practioner. Melissa's classes are sequenced intelligently to gradually warm the body followed by a fluid flow where students can get lost in the movement and out of their heads. She encourages alignment and safety with playfulness, fun and feeling good!

Sarah Farrell Gentle

Sarah Farrell


Sarah found her way to the yoga mat in 2006 after suffering many injuries due to years of running with poor alignment. It only took one class for her to realize the potential impact this practice would make in her life. Unlike running where she was literally attempting to escape from her stressful life, Yoga lead her on a path toward recognition and acceptance. After many seasons of self-exploration through the practice of yoga, Sarah felt a calling to share and enrolled in a 200-hour training with Linda McGrath and Cindy Walker at Yoga Source Los Gatos. Sarah's classes are influenced by her love of music and dance and focus on connecting breath to movement in order to cultivate a strong and dynamic mind-body relationship. Sarah's other interests in include hiking in the Santa Cruz Mountains where she is opening an art boutique with her husband. She also enjoys singing, performing and playing music with local musicians.

Jenn teaches 4 classes a week, a number of private lessons, and leads the Bikram workshops at YogaSource. She gives special thanks to the amazing yogini, Linda McGrath, whose advice has led her to hone her teaching skills since she joined the YogaSource Bikram team.

Cindie Heverly Bikram
Hot Pilates
Vinyasa Basics Gentle

Cindie Heverly

Cindie took her first Bikram class in the mid 90's. With several injuries on her plate, she realized how beneficial yoga was, not only to her physical recovery, but how well it balanced and blended with her personal and spiritual beliefs. Intrigued by the philosophy of Yoga and the ever-changing road to self discovery, she traded in her bartending boots, bottle opener and NYC lifestyle, for a yoga mat and a passion to teach and help others. She completed her first teacher training in NYC in 2005, came to Yogasource and has been addicted to the blessed feeling she gets from teaching. Her style is her own ~ blending humor, awareness of breath and teaching from the fruits of her own personal experience.

She has completed additional teaching certifications with Sean Corne and Paul Grilley and has gathered knowledge through attending workshops with Max Strom, Shiva Rea, Sally Klempton, Mantak Chia, Lee Holden, Charles Muir, Jill Miller and is currently completing her teacher training in TRE (trauma release exercise) to help those that suffer from low back pain, sciatica and emotional trauma.

When she's not sweating at Yogasource, she's managing an Acupuncture Clinic in Los Gatos and spreading the word about alternative methods of healing. She enjoys her life by the beach in Santa Cruz with her very handsome, hairy, 4-legged companion, Cody. "

Todd LaBerge Power
Vinyasa Mixed Levels

Todd LaBerge

Todd taught his first class by fluke when he showed up along with others to practice at a cancelled class. He volunteered to save the day, blew everybody away that day with his energy and enthusiasm and the decision was made that he was meant to be a teacher. Months of study later, he started his 3 classes a week. We’d have him slave every day but that’s the most he can squeeze into a schedule of full time Ironman training and some high-flying engineering job at Intel. His 15 plus years of experience with triathlon shed a very relevant light to those of us on the more athletic and tighter side of the practice and he is brilliant at translating the wisdom from our yoga practice into tools we can use in our other favorite sports, be it to gain a competitive edge or prevent a sports injury. Always spontaneous and high energy, his classes are a fun mix of great music tunes, unabashed humor, Survivor reviews and dating advice. Realizing that our bodies are all different, and that even our own bodies change from day to day, Todd teaches from a "Centrist" mindset. Starting from the center or middle effort level, Todd then provides you with options to take your pose either deeper or easier, which encourages you to listen to your body and make the appropriate decision for you, on that particular day. Unfortunately our moms weren't right - we're not perfect and instead should embrace our limitations and personal boundaries, only pushing them intelligently. Remember...maybe that neighbor next to you in class took a muscle relaxor today, or they're like Barry Bonds and took some flaxseed oil. There will always be someone stronger or more bendy..... Who cares? You are your own guru... listen to yourself and grow....

Erin Matteucci Vinyasa Mixed Levels
Power
Gentle

Erin Matteucci

Erin’s yogic journey began with a beginner’s video and a carefully-placed mat on her bedroom floor.  It definitely wasn't love at first chaturanga-but posture by posture and class by class, she felt her body begin to feel lighter, quieter and stronger.  
Craving the relaxed exhaustion and focused quiet mind in her own body, she teaches from that space with a consuming gentle presence that immediately puts you at ease on your yoga mat.   Erin believes that it is through  focus and intention that you find yourself- Hold Warrior I for 10 breaths and meet who you really are!

A power yoga devotee, she thinks that Baron said it best, "steady breath, steady gaze, steady mind = steady practice".  Can we move with grace even when challenged by a practice we once moved through with ease?  We are different every day, every moment.  It is with acceptance that you grow in your physical practice, with awareness that you learn to make your movements purposeful, and with an open heart that you take your yoga practice off the mat.  
Erin holds two 200-hour teaching certifications and has been teaching power yoga since 2005.

Melinda Mount Bikram

Melinda Mount

Melinda has been an aspiring yogi ever since taking her first Bikram yoga class in 2007.  She has always enjoyed being active, from playing team sports to sexy salsa dance performances to mixed martial arts. Yoga has been one of the few sustainable practices in her life that consistently allows for physical/mental renewal and awareness.  She holds a BS degree from UC Berkeley in nutritional science, and she currently specializes as an RD working with the underserved adolescent population.  She has continued her studies in both functional nutrition and fitness, and holds certifications in working with food sensitivities and also as a personal trainer (NASM).

Donna Pettit Power

Donna Pettit

Donna Pettit’s path to teaching yoga looks much more like a random doodle than a straight line. Fifteen years ago, she arrived on the mat because she was told it would make her better at sport, and as a lifelong athlete, that was enticing. While the attraction to the physical aspects of the practice were immediate, somehow the “more important” workouts took precedence and her practice was often reduced to a Bikram class here, a Hatha practice there, the occassional home video… It eventually took a few serious injuries before she began to recognize that the physical benefits she sought were only realized with consistency and were also completely intertwined with the mental and spiritual. Moreover, there is more to yoga than perceived benefits. In addition to being a certified Yoga Tune-Up Instructor, Donna is a Certified Personal Trainer through the National Academy of Sports Medicine and has completed her 200-Hour Teacher Training with Linda McGrath at YogaSource and is looking forward to embarking on the 500-Hour training. She would love participants in her classes to be curious, find humor, breathe deeply, experience challenge, feel success and ultimately leave feeling better than when they unrolled their mats. When not on the mat, you might find her at various gyms around The Valley teaching group exercise classes, cooking up a storm or working on yet another remodel project for the house.
Jackie Rogers Bikram

Jackie Rogers

Jackie started practicing Bikram Yoga in San Luis Obispo in 2004 while attending Cal Poly University.

Jackie completed her Bikram Yoga Teacher Training in the spring 2010. Being active and working out has always been a big part of Jackie’s life. She loves the challenge, the heat, and the way her body feels after Bikram.

While not teaching or practicing at Yoga Source, she enjoys hanging out in Santa Cruz, doing CrossFit, and spending time with her husband and English Mastiff.

Stacey Roseblade Hot Pilates Power

Stacey Roseblade

As her practice evolved, her desire to expand her knowledge of yoga deepened, and she decided to shift her focus to Power Yoga. Stacey became Yoga Alliance certified in 2005 through the 200 hour Yoga Source Power Flow Program and the Level One Baron Baptiste Power Yoga Program. In addition to her certifications, Stacey has been greatly influenced and inspired by teachers such as Linda McGrath, Jill Miller, Stephanie Snyder, Janet Stone, Gabriella Walters and Rusty Wells.

Kylie Sloan Gentle Yin
Restorative

Kylie Sloan

Kylie started practicing yoga in 2006 after years of training as a competitive gymnast at Gold Star Gymnastics LLC. She fell in love with Vinyasa flow which stood in stark contrast to her mentally and physically strenuous gymnastics practice. No longer pressured by the quest for perfection, Kylie felt liberated through the practice of yoga regardless of the style. She discovered her open and grounded center and tries to bring that awareness into her everyday life. As she began to read more about yoga, she felt a strong connection with Buddhist philosophy and works to integrate this learning into her own practice.

Kylie is a Yoga Alliance certified instructor. After completing the 200-hour Teacher Training at YogaSource Los Gatos in the summer of 2010, she became fascinated with anatomy and even more drawn to yoga philosophy. In her classes, Kylie emphasizes the importance of breath and listening to one’s own body as a guide for the practice. To enhance the connection between mind, body, and spirit, she incorporates movement and deep meditation into her sequences. Kylie creates a relaxing, welcoming environment with her calm, reassuring presence to foster a healthy, feel-good experience for her students. Kylie loves working with children. She gained experience teaching gymnastics at a camp for kids at Gold Star, and is developing a yoga program for kids through the city of Cupertino.

Studying art history and literature at University of California Santa Cruz, Kylie plans to graduate with her bachelor’s degree in June of 2014. When she is not on her mat, Kylie enjoys practicing modern dance, throwing pottery, and spending time with her family and close friends. After getting certified as an instructor, Kylie felt a new kind of devotion to her yoga practice and is excited to share the practice she loves wholeheartedly with others.

Kylie owes many thanks to those who have greatly influenced her practice and encouraged her to teach. She would like to acknowledge Nichole Wargo, Jaclyn Long, Linda McGrath, Erin Matteucci, Sensei Kevin Snorf, and Melody Wu for their guidance and inspiration.

Maria Vogel Chair Yoga

Maria Vogel

Maria safely guides her students to build a solid foundation based on breath, alignment, symmetry and space within the limitations of each student. She believes that yoga should be less about projecting ideals and more about building independence and increasing self-esteem. In this type of nurturing environment, we can begin to deepen our practice so that real transformation can occur. As we widen our boundaries and discover new possibilities, we become more aware of what is truly important – love, beauty, compassion and a strong sense of inner peace.
Maria completed her 200 hour teacher training with Linda McGrath at Yogasource in Los Gatos and is working toward a 500 hour certification.

Jimiann Wong Chair Yoga
Vinyasa Basics

Jimiann Wong

Jimiann’s first yoga class was at YogaSource in June 2002. Her friend told her to prepare for it to be “hot and to bring a towel and a water bottle.” She had no idea what impact that yoga class would have on her life several years later. Having had two babies at the time, she craved for something to alleviate her emotional and physical fatigue. Upon taking Linda and Erin’s flow yoga classes in 2005, she was completely smitten by this style of practice and has never looked back. In her class, you will find a vigorous and light hearted flow, where students will be reminded to move with their breath and listen to their bodies. By gradually warming the joints and the body, she prepares you to move through your practice with strength and ease. She hopes to provide a safe and nurturing space to allow students to explore, to feel inspired and to leave with a sense of well-being. Jimiann completed her 200 Hour Teacher Training with Linda McGrath at YogaSource. Aside from working part time and raising four kids, she enjoys snow skiing and playing golf.
