Adriane is an E-yrt 500-hour Yoga teacher, Reiki Master, and lifetime student. She is the owner of Home Yoga Studio in Temecula, CA and as such takes every opportunity to study anatomy, philosophy and any yoga tradition to better understand how the practice relates to the human mind and body.

Adriane incorporates a comprehensive approach to yogic philosophy, and the Asanas. She loves to add yoga mythology in class to help students understand different aspects and origins of the practice. One of Adriane’s favorite parts of teaching is to help students safely get into poses that they never thought possible. Having experienced injuries throughout life, Adriane has healed her own body with her yoga practice and has used her influence by amazing teachers from the Anusara tradition to do so. As a result, she finds it important for students to understand the mechanics behind the poses and know how to protect their body in the physical practice. It is her belief that anybody can integrate yoga into their lives as a tool to ensure a long, vibrant and healthy life. Whether you are looking for a healing and gentle class, or a vigorous, fun advanced class, Adriane can help you love your practice wherever you are.

Zoe fell in love with yoga first through the Ashtanga practice in 2014 during her time in Washington. She explored the strict movement and breath and found discipline in the practice. When she moved to Temecula she fell in love with the spiritual aspect that yoga had to offer her. Her practice took her beyond the mat to find deep healing through an array of meditation styles, connecting body, mind and soul with breath, and surrounding herself with a supportive yoga community.  During this time in her life, she realized the power of yoga and a strong support system and decided that with the experience she had gained through her own healing, that she would go on to learn everything she could to help others find healing as well.

Zoe is 200 RYT certified and is constantly seeking ways to expand her own knowledge of physical, mental and spiritual health in order to offer her students a well rounded all encompassing practice.

Kim Stern (Spiritual name, Devi Atma Kaur which means Angelic Soul Attuned to the Divine) has a teaching style that has a reverence for these sacred teachings through serious humor, incredible music and playful commitment. She has been practicing Kundalini Yoga, as taught by Yogi Bhajan for over 13 years. Kundalini Yoga, her daily spiritual practices and transformational experiences have changed the trajectory of her life. I AM a living testimonial!

Kim had invested 20 years on a corporate career path, when suddenly she could not get out of bed. It left her feeling like a victim of circumstances. She used to suffer with dark depression, anxiety and addictions (negative thinking, food and other substances) that sabotaged her efforts toward being a "normal" and "successful" person. She realized with new eyes that aiming for "normal" was living in mediocrity and it required a change in her old fashioned definition of "success." 

Today, one of her many mantra's toward living a life of excellence is: "If it's to be, it's up to me." Kim is committed to her own personal expansion with Kundalini Yoga through classes and retreats, self-study, spiritual practices and principles on a consistent basis.

Ashley Grew up in North County San Diego surrounded by the culture of yoga. The idea and experience of yoga has always intrigued and moved her. She began a meditation series at the YMCA at the age of 12 and incorporated yoga as a competitive gymnast as an adolescent. Doing this work at such a young age ingrained in her a deep-rooted understanding of the necessity and importance of duality. It takes both strength and fluidity to practice anything in an aligned way.

She began practicing yoga on a regular basis in 1999 and immediately felt a strong connection to it. In 2009, she did her 200 hour certification and continues to actively engage life as practice of yoga. She consistently practiced yoga through her first 2 pregnancies, and completed an 100 hour Advanced Pre and Post Natal Yoga training during her third pregnancy. Ashley is known for having a gentle heart. She is easy to be around and her intention is to offer a practice where people feel supported, calm and safe.

Cierra Urso

Fri 6:30 PM

Cierra began practicing yoga as a teenager as a way to cope with anxiety and after taking her first Ashtanga yoga class at 13 she fell in love with the practice. She has been regularly practicing for over a decade and the skills she has learned have helped her overcome many challenges.

When she moved to the Temecula area from Los Angeles in 2016, she came across Mermaid Movement yoga with Kristen Rud at HOME Yoga and was intrigued by the combination of yoga, dance, and community connection. Every Friday since she has dedicated time to the Mermaid Movement practice and has found it has given her so much more than she could have ever imagined. In the 3 years since beginning regular weekly practice with Mermaid Movement, Cierra has broken through several barriers, including those self-limiting beliefs she thought she could never surpass. Now, she is leading workshops, gatherings, and movement sessions for women as a way to help others break down their own barriers to realize their truest potentials. Her love for Mermaid Movement has blossomed and she takes her passion with her everywhere she goes. Now that Cierra has started to lead Mermaid Movement classes she loves to focus on personal connections, joyous movement, and bringing passion to everyone who joins her practice. Her Mermaid Movement classes are not traditional yoga but they do incorporate Vinyasa inspired movement intermingled with dancing and singing to altogether release trapped emotions to facilitate feelings of joy, love, and compassionate connection.
