RISE Prime Wellness yoga is the first of its kind. Medically managed by a Doctor of Physical Therapy, RPW yoga classes are small group classes. Unlike other studios, we cap our classes at 10 people. We believe that people move the best in a small guided setting. With small class sizes, our trained yoga instructors have more time to oversee their class attendees for a more safe and functional practice. With functional movement and mobility in mind, our yoga instructors have been trained to update your yoga practice with the understanding of human anatomy and functional needs. You will be introduced to dynamic stretching, functional balance training, and strengthening poses that will help you on and off the mat.
All classes are available to all levels of students. Each class offers a variety of options for each pose and transition so that you can adjust your yoga class to your skill set and needs. For further information about each class style, please see our class description page. We look forward to seeing you on the mat!

Our Yoga Instructors
Alex has been teaching yoga since 2012. Her passion is to share the benefits of yoga practice with others. She brings a rich understanding of yoga gained from multiple yoga teacher trainings and certifications, and her classes are for everyone, from beginners to seasoned practitioners. Her classes will help improve mobility, flexibility, build functional strength, core strength, and will help you stay centered and present. Every class is different, every time, and she may incorporate: aromatherapy, pranayama (breathing techniques), visualization, meditation, and mudras (hand gestures).
Rebecca’s educational background is in Biology and she has been teaching Yoga for 17 years. She is also a certified Primordial Sound Meditation instructor, receiving her training at the Chopra Center, founded by Dr. Deepak Chopra. “I experienced the powerful miracle of self-healing. I am forever changed because of it, and now I want to teach others that they are the healer and the healed. Healing comes from connecting within. I feel inspired every time I connect to my inner-self through my yoga and meditation practice. The more I am connected to who I really am, the more I want to be a source of peace, light and love for others.”
Moving to the United States gave Buket the opportunity to pursue her passion for well being, fitness and living a holistic healthy lifestyle. She took her first Reiki and breathing techniques training while she was a competitive archer on the Turkish national team during and after her university education. She completed her 200 hour YTT from Core Power Yoga. Her classes are rooted in the Vinyasa and Hatha style with an emphasis on alignment and breath awareness. Routines are designed to encourage a continuous flow in & out of postures with coordinated breath control. “I don’t pursue extreme, distorted poses in Yoga. I strive for balance in considering the whole body, mind and spirit in a lifelong approach”.
Leila discovered yoga in 2000 when she was in college and has been dedicated to her own practice ever since. In 2011, she pursued teacher training through the Awakened Heart Embodied Mind school of yoga at Exhale in Venice, California. Her instruction emphasized correct alignment, injury prevention, and personal responsibility in practice and teaching, the mind-body relationship, especially looking at the ways that trauma lives in the body, the ways that breath can facilitate healing, and the fascinating advances in Neuroscience that support this understanding. Her own approach as a teacher is rooted in mindfulness, bringing a loving awareness to body and breath. She delivers a gentle, relaxing practice for beginners, and a deep vinyasa flow for more experienced yogis, creating space for everyone to find the inner rhythms to guide their practice. She is also an avid dancer and enthusiastic about welcoming ecstatic movement into or after a more structured practice.
Jesi, as her friends and students call her, developed her creative teaching style through years of working as an artist. She has been practicing different styles of yoga and teaching authentically comes across in her personality. Her mantra is "Live your yoga." She continuously learns from her students and peers, knowing we are all forever students. She brings her creativity as an artist into each yoga class she teaches. She is currently a yoga therapist in training at the soul of yoga branching out to help people heal on a yogic level using movement, breath and meditation.

Her yoga journey began 15 years ago as an attempt to heal an injury from dance.
