Sara Forbes Hall

I’m an active person who spends a lot of my time outside. Growing up I was a dancer and a gymnast until I realized the damage I was causing to my joints. I was challenged by my best friend to take my first Bikram Yoga class back in 2006, and after a couple of classes I fell in love with the practice; I could feel the difference in my body and joints. I attended the Bikram Yoga Teacher Training Program in L.A. in the fall of 2012 and ever since, I’ve been sharing my learnings and practice with students. I’ve studied Health Science and Human Anatomy which influences my teachings as I focus on the alignment and structure of the body throughout my practice. My classes are fun and happy and I’m always here to encourage, teach, and discuss yoga with anyone; novice to experienced.

Nafisa Abdul Jillil was born and raised in Anchorage Alaska, she graduated from East Anchorage High School 1995. Nafisa moved to Los Angeles in 1997 Danced Professionally for Eight Years with many different Artist Ranging from Janet Jackson, Brittney Spears, Tina Turner and Usher. I began to practice Bikram Yoga in December of 2003 learning about it on a Dance Job I was working on with NIKE Athletics. My First class was tough so I knew I had to do it again. I loved the fact of you didn’t have the choice or option to Quit! Just you, your mat and Towel and Breath. I went to Teacher Training Spring 2007 In Hawaii and it was Amazing. Started teaching right away at all the Top Studios in Los Angeles Bikram Headquarters, Studio City and Bikram Pasadena. I have attended many seminars and classes with Bikram and Rajashree Choudhury, Emmy cleaves and Craig villain. I love teaching because I love working with people to achieve their goals of being FOCUSED, HAPPY, HEALTHY AND BALANCED!

Nicole Staker

For years, I dabbled in various types of yoga, taking classes here and there but never consistently. After moving to Alaska from California, I grew to enjoy hiking and running but soon realized that I needed to challenge myself with something totally new and different. I took my first Bikram class at Anchorage Yoga and immediately fell in love.
I completed Yoga Teacher Training through Anchorage Yoga in Spring 2017 and continue to seek learning opportunities and experiences. I truly believe that it is through the beginner’s mind that we find the most opportunity for growth.

Yoga has taught me that vulnerability opens our bodies, hearts and minds in a way that is unparalleled and learning this has changed me from the inside out. I hope to share my love of life and yoga with fellow yogis and students both in and out of the studio.
All levels. Our 60-minute version of the classic twenty-six postures and two breathing exercises. This class helps to strengthen the mind as well as shape, sculpt, and heal the body.
