Pina Tripodi, M.Ed, Reiki Master, RYT-200, & Kids Yoga Teacher

Pina always knew she was going to be a teacher, and for the past 8 years she has done just that as a special educator working with children and adolescents. Little did she know that this was just the beginning. When she allowed herself to receive all of the possibilities that were in store for her, she realized that there was so much more to learn and to teach to those ready to learn them.

Yoga, Reiki, art, & essential oils all hold a special place in her heart and have all been transformative methods of hollistic healing in her life . Pina feels there is nothing quite like being able to give love to another person in the form of creating, teaching, and healing.

San Diego Yoga Festival Presents! Bowspring Yoga with Sarah Haughton

Bowspring is a global shift in the paradigm of yoga alignment. Bowspring is a powerful methodology of movement that encourages and strengthens the natural curves of our human bodies. Bowspring liberates our bodies to discover our fullest potential not only on our yoga mats, but in our daily lives. Bowspring is powerful posturing combined with pulsations of movement that will guarantee you a healthy spine, lightness in your body and a positive mindset for balanced daily living. It is required for a student to come to this class with an open, beginner’s mindset in order to fully benefit from all that Bowspring has to offer.

Sarah is the first certified Bowspring teacher in California, and has studied directly with Desi Springer and John Friend since 2012 to heal her body from over-use injuries caused by years of traditional yoga, while also to enabling her to be able to teach this powerful method to her community. Sarah is a part of the growing Global Bowspring community, and works daily not only on her own Bowspring practice but also on connecting with the growing global network of teachers and students. Sarah is proud to have opened the first Bowspring Yoga Studio in California, Yoga Bow.

San Diego Yoga Festival Presents Sacred Surf!!

Sacred Surf

Will be at the San Diego Yoga Festival March 9th-12th providing surf lessons!! 

It all started with love…

Our story began in 2011 on a beach in beautiful San Diego. We met on a hot summer day with the sun blazing and crystal clear water crashing just a few feet away.  We shared our stories and realized that we both lived on the same street, less than a mile apart. This made it easy for us to see each other and build the loving relationship that we have today. Over the years we have spent our time together traveling and exploring new countries, attending world renowned music and yoga festivals, and sharing our passion of adventure with friends and family.

Sacred Surf was born after we realized that our current jobs were not fulfilling our souls. We worked long hours day in day out, yet we didn’t feel as though our efforts were facilitating services that aligned with our values. Tarin’s love for yoga awakened her intuition and she began her spiritual journey by completing her yoga teacher training in 2011. Yoga has allowed her to find inner peace, inspiration and balance. Nick’s love for the ocean and passion for adventure lead him to surfing, hiking, biking and all things groovy. He completed his yoga teacher training in August 2016. Together they decided to become Reiki Practitioners. 

We decided to fill our lives with the things we love and we structured our business around that concept. Do what you love and love what you do. We combined our love for the ocean, surfing, and yoga into our business and it was the best decision we ever made!

Stay groovy,

Nick and Tarin
