I am an E-RTY 500 Yoga Alliance registered teacher since 2002. I begin my studies in a neighborhood studio, when yoga was not really accepted into the main stream, rather thought by dedicated householders who shared this scared way of self-understanding and health.
I am a RYT - 200 certified teacher specializing in vinyasa yoga at Volcano Power Yoga. My joy is to share the transformative power of yoga and enable students of all levels to tap in to their own unique energy. I studied Iyengar yoga early on and completed my certification at a Baptiste studio in Nashville, TN. Drawing from Ashtanga, Baptiste, and Iyengar traditions, I offer workshops and classes in a unique rainforest environment just minutes from the live Halemaʻumaʻu volcano crater on the Big Island of Hawaii.
Alisa Cubic first discovered yoga on PBS Chicago TV every day after elementary school. The teacher looked so peaceful, yet strong. She wanted to be just like her. She dove into the spirituality of it all, and it continued through to her adult life. Life happened though and she found herself separated from yoga asanas until a romantic winter reunion happened in 2013 at Yoga By Degrees. Alisa decided it was time to get serious about, not just her mind and spirit, but her body as well. What better way than to get certified to teach yoga? The yoga community provided her with the space to get to know herself deeper than she ever dreamt possible, all while allowing her to be her. Alisa hopes to bring this same safe haven to her vinyasa and restorative classes: love, kindness, joy and acceptance. Alisa is 200 hour certified in yoga since 2014 & has since then received further certification in Yoga Sculpt as of February 2016.

A transplant from France, Anne Barbaret made the San Francisco Bay Area her home in 1995.
She got her teaching credentials from the Iyengar Institute of San Francisco, the oldest Iyengar teacher-training program in the United States; she is now a certified teacher, Intermediate Junior 1.

Annetta is a multifaceted yoga teacher (E RYT 200, YogaWorks RYT 500) with over 1000 hours of training and multiple certifications in a variety of styles of yoga. She specializes in alignment based Vinyasa Flow, Gentle yoga, Yin yoga and Restorative yoga. She began practicing yoga in 1999, after some years away from the ballet barre, and she was immediately hooked due to the grounding, healing and transformative effect yoga had upon her. Throughout her yoga journey she has studied and practiced: Bikram, Hatha, Iyengar, Ashtanga Vinyasa, Yin and Restorative yoga, in studios, workshops and colleges around Northern California.
Annetta's private, corporate, public classes and workshops are fun, educational, intuitive, thoughtfully sequenced and well balanced. She emphasizes breath and alignment to encourage students to develop a safe, sustainable and transformative practice. She teaches challenging Vinyasa flow, healing Hatha, nourishing Restorative & Yin yoga classes to all levels and ages. Her teaching is inspired by her own therapeutic practice, which she uses to build energy and restore balance.
Her goal as a teacher is to SEE her students and perceive and teach what they really need. Yoga is much more than just exercise (asana) to Annetta. It is a complete lifestyle, that includes all 8 limbs, which lead her daily to greater self-love, awareness, health, happiness, peace, and bliss.
