Karina Gerschler

Karina is a native San Diegan who started her yoga journey by taking her first Vinyasa class in 2003. With this practice she ventured down a spiritual path that transformed her from the inside out, which grew into the desire to share it with others.

Additional trainings include Ashtanga Yoga Teacher Training with David Swenson and Kelley Washington and is also a certified Aerial Yoga Instructor from Aerial Houston Yoga.

Expect to find the full mind, body, and spiritual experience. Students should come with an open mind ready to try new things and push their boundaries in a safe and loving environment. Her gentle and playful nature is evident in the community she creates in her class!

Steve Hart

Steve is the owner of Riffs Studios. Yoga and music were two major influences in his life, and his mission through Riffs is to share his experience and help the local community through the spread of music and yoga.

Steve often incorporates the healing powers of vibration through his playing of the crystal bowls and gong in his classes. Check out his unique blend of intention, yoga, and sound healing.

Rachel Lubich

Rachel is a lifelong student committed to the study and sharing of yoga. With over 4,500 hours of teaching experience spanning more than 8 years across multiple cities within the United States and abroad, she has been able to absorb the many teachings of various communities.
Although a vinyasa teacher by training, she does not confine herself to one style or definition of teaching. Rather, she draws upon her life’s experiences, both on and off the mat, to help students discover their own definition of Yoga. Her vinyasa classes are inspired by her personal practice, one consisting of intelligently sequenced, creative movement and the process of patiently listening to her own body. Whether she is teaching a restorative or vinyasa class, students can expect to find their focus, explore their strengths and weaknesses, laugh and feel well balanced.
This class includes a sequence of postures arranged to systematically create heat and stoke the energetic fires of the body. Advanced postures will be introduced as options to go deeper, and students may learn step-by-step how incorporate binds, arm balances and inversions in their practice. This is a breath based practice that is fun and is designed to build strength and flexibility, learn physical postures, yoga philosophy, and create a sense of calm and balance in the mind, body, and spirit.
