Namaste! My name is Heldine Aguiluz. :)
I started practicing yoga around 2010. As an actor, I saw it as a great way to get fit and to get more in touch with the instrument that is my body. Through my practice, I started to gain a greater awareness of my body and thoughts. I realized how much I disliked myself. The more I practiced yoga, the more I learned about myself and the more I started to love myself.
Yes, yoga can be a great way to work out. But to me, that's such a small aspect. Join me for yoga to not only work out, but to also work in and have a stronger awareness of your self that you can carry back out into the world. <3
I have 500 hours of yoga certification. I studied alignment-based vinyasa and elemental tantra. I have also completed a Level 1 Sound Bath & Healing Training. I previously taught vinyasa and meditation classes at The Springs LA.
Along with the free yoga classes that I teach on Saturdays, I am available for Private Sessions (1-on-1s or groups).
REQUEST A CLASS!
Want a class tailored to you and your schedule, but you don't want to pay for a private? Here's your chance for more yoga classes at an affordable price of $10/student!
1. Message me at least 1 week in advance from your request dates and times. Currently offering 1-hour classes. Please list at least 3 options so that we can figure out what works for both of our schedules. :)
2. In your message, please include what kind of class you want it to be or what you're interested in working on. Think of it like a private class, where you get to choose what you want the focus of the class to be. :) Examples: Slow Flow, Power Flow, Yin/Stretch, Heart-Opening, Inversions, etc.
3. I will create a class event here, and then you sign up for it. It is a public class, so anyone can attend.
4. Minimum of 2 students required. So if you have a friend that you know wants to take a class with you, then the class is automatically guaranteed! :) If there isn't a 2nd RSVP within 24 hours of the class, the class will be canceled/rescheduled.
The class will be located at the Santee Court Fitness Center (the same place as my Saturday morning classes).
QUESTIONS? Message me. :)
What can I say! I've honestly never been one to consistently do Yoga, but I stumbled across a flyer that said Free Yoga in DTLA and I decided to give it a shot. 7 weeks later, I long for Saturday mornings with Helene. Helene's class is truly the best way to end your week and start your week. I thoroughly enjoy the peaceful environment her class provides, the intimate setting and her overall patience and calm presence. The class isn't difficult and it isn't easy by any means either. Needless to say Yoga with Heldine is "Just Right" and her temperament and teaching method always leaves me feeling challenged, relaxed and energized. Go Heldine! 5 stars all the way!
