Originally from the San Francisco Bay Area, Arielle grew up in Millbrae in a Chinese + French home. As the product of foreign parents, Arielle spent summers traveling Europe and Asia with her sister Avril and parents Niki and Daniel. Exposed to diverse cultures, religious beliefs and traditions, her radical acceptance and appreciation of the beauty in all beings started young.
Arielle is a yogini, dancer and aerialist. She was introduced to yoga in 2008 and has been teaching since 2013. Arielle completed her 200-hour Blissology-inspried Vinyasa yoga teacher training under the guidance of Eoin Finn. Her asana practice began as a workout to compliment aerial strength training. Gradually, her yoga practice evolved into relieving stress & muscle tension, and finding spirituality & peace of mind. Arielle's mission is to inspire full self expression; she invites students to be in wonder about their body while exploring beyond perceived limitations. Classes promote flexibility, strength and fun with creative sequencing, focus on alignment and continuous mindfulness.
