Teen Yoga 101



Mandy Burstein is a yoga instructor and writer based in La Jolla, California. Through yoga and writing, she passionately empowers people to become the best version of themselves, both on and off the mat. Upon completing her initial 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training in 2010, Mandy has found her calling teaching Vinyasa Flow, Restorative Yoga, Stand-Up Paddleboard Yoga and leading international yoga retreats. In 2013, she completed an additional 300 hours of yoga training and a mentorship with master teacher, Stacy McCarthy through the YogaWorks Professional Program at PRANA YOGA CENTER, earning her the designation of RYT-500 from Yoga Alliance.


Anne's teaching borrows from a variety of yoga styles, influenced by her training in Anusara, Svaroopa, Iyengar and Raja yoga. Whether it's a challenging Vinyasa practice, Gentle Hatha or Restorative, she teaches with compassion and a deep understanding of how yoga positively changes the way we live our lives. Restorative Yoga is Anne's specialty and a very powerful practice. Using support of blankets and bolsters, we place our bodies comfortably in yoga poses for longer amounts of time, allowing our bodies to let us in at our own pace and enabling a deep opening of the body. Rather than practicing Power Yoga and "working out," we explore the Power of Yoga to access strength and balance of a different kind. If you can breathe, you can do restorative yoga!


Ema Larkin RYT200 is a certified yoga teacher who began her exploration with yoga five years ago. Amazed at the physical, emotional and spiritual transformation she experienced, her passion for practicing yoga quickly turned into a passion for sharing yoga. Her classes combine movement and breath in a dynamic, alignment based Vinyasa Yoga flow.
