About this pro

I teaches Vinyasa, Yin, and Wall Yoga at Mission Beach Yoga. I also lead a Women’s Circle. I loves spreading good vibes and helping everyone find inner strength. My teaching style is dynamic; I asks my students how they feel and adjusts my sequences accordingly. I focus on using the breath to flow into each asana slow and mindfully. 

They say you find what your truest passionate about and you will never work a day in your life! This couldn’t be more true. I love to learn and pass on my knowledge to those who are also interested in transforming their lives with yoga.

    What I liked the most about my session with Odessa was her pace and her tone of voice. She is in tune with her student. Also, she picked a great spot by the water under a tree and even brought incense to burn. I had driven a lot the day of my lesson, and after the lesson I felt re-energized. Odessa is a yogi that understands how to sequence and guide us into poses to help us heal and feel strong. She radiates good energy.

  • McKenzie

    She is charismatic, kind and easy to follow! Did a womens circle she led and it was magical!

  • Alyssa

    She not only is a great teacher, but all of her classes are motivating and inspiring, you leave her class with a clear mind and a new perspective!

  • Liz

    Odessa did more than just put me in different poses she had something in me spark. I don't know what it was but I felt so loose after the session. I did get somewhat emotional as she explained could happen by letting go. It was beautiful and I look forward to our next session.

What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I start with a consultation where I ask a series of quetions shuch as injury histrory, yoga background, goals, what to focus on,intentions, schedual, and how often the client would like to take classes. 

Then we go over what membership plan will work best for the induiduals schedual and finances. Once the package is purchased we will schedual our very first class!

After the class ends I spend about 10 mins asking how they feel and if they have and quetions or concerns. :)

How did you get started teaching?

I finished my teacher training but I had so much fear to go into a studio and mock (interview). When I was traveling in SE Asia I started reading the Alchemist and this book literly opended my eyes. I felt like I wasn't living my truth. I was working in the restaurant industry and I knew I needed to do something that really helped people heal and that I am really passionate about. I was in Bali and the hostel I was at had a gap where they did not a yoga teacher. I was so nervous to ask if I could teach I was qualified but I had only taught friends in the park or at the beach. I let go of that fear I asked and I taught some amazing classes. When I got back to San Diego I was walking down the street and my teacher from YTT was standing outside of a studio and she hired me right then and there. It was all meant to be. This is my calling I jsut know it.
