What People Are Saying About Us
I really enjoy the new studio and workout areas! It's more spacious and allows for more room to work out, as well as more classes. I have taken Adrea Reed's Mat Pilates, Rebecca Fink's and Rohaya Esa's Yoga classes, and they have all been thoroughly and enjoyably challenging. I look forward to taking more classes at the yoga center 🙂
Love going here! There's a plethora of classes: Vinyasa, Acro Yoga, Move & Meditate, Yin Yang, Restorative, etc. and I've gone to all. They use Mindbody so it's convenient to see the schedule and reserve your spot. There's also a fitness center next door so it's convenient to get a workout in and then head to yoga to wind down 🙂 I'd check it out if you love to stay active to recalibrate!
Sender One has provided a space for my practice to grow tremendously over the last 3 years. Rebecca Fink's exemplary wisdom and sattvic lifestyle have been influential as I wander the yogic path. Finding balance by focusing in the breath was introduced in her classes. Great new studios with all the props one could need.
Meet the Instructors
Alisha fell in love with yoga at age 19 and started teaching soon afterward. She specializes in strong and athletic Vinyasa flow and hopes to empower her students through the practice of challenging postures (especially inversions)! With creative sequences and dance-like transitions, her classes invite students to challenge their self-limiting beliefs and explore their untapped potential. Alisha balances the fiery aspects of her classes with the centering practices of pranayama and meditation. You can practice with her in yoga studios throughout Orange County.
Rebecca Fink, E-RYT500, has been teaching yoga to climbers since 2013 at Sender One Climbing, CA. She has enjoyed guiding and watching her yoga students grow in their asana practice, and always loves hearing their feedback about how yoga has improved their climbing skills. The enjoyment of fitness, the great outdoors, and the exploration of the union of breath and movement has inspired her to embark on a new journey of self discovery—through climbing. Now it all makes sense. Since beginning both a personal gym climbing practice and an exploration of natural rock climbing outdoors, she has first-hand discovered the innate connection between yoga and climbing. Many of the techniques used in yoga, such as personal body awareness and discipline of breath, are crucial in advancing climbing skills and avoiding injury. The mind and body connection can be accomplished on the wall, rock and mat, and in life. And, Rebecca is thrilled to be able to guide you on this path.
Having grown up in Huntington Beach, Laura has always been able to take advantage of outdoor as well as indoor activities. Sailing, ballet, gymnastics, backpacking, and surfing has kept her busy throughout her youth. In 2010 Laura began taking yoga classes beginning with Bikram Yoga. Then through a random Groupon was introduced to Vinyasa Yoga. The Vinyasa style of yoga offered a fluid flow along with the option to step-it-up with the more powerful strength moves. Besides improving the athletic aspects of life such as surfing (balance), sailing (strength) and backpacking (breath control /stamina), yoga provided an inner contentment, patience, and bliss. In 2012 she decided that she needed to share that joy with others and received her 200Hr. certification along with the extensions program, and level 2 teacher training. "Yoga can open up a whole new world in which patience, strength, and balance live in harmony." By teaching yoga Laura has been able to see that path open for others and watch that joy blossom within their lives.

Molly Embrador was born and raised in Whittier, Calif. As a young girl, her parents put her through dance lessons, which she enjoyed, and continued dancing all throughout high school and college. After spending years of competing, she finally took a break and focused more on something new.

In addition to training the HIIT class, Nicola Strother is the fitness director at Sender One Climbing. She has had a B.A. from UCLA, a current CPR certification and is also a Certified Nutrition Coach. As a teenager, she was a competitive gymnast training 6 days a week, 5 hours a day. Being in peak condition was critical. She has continued along the path of strength training and cardiovascular workouts and eventually parlayed her athleticism into a successful career as a stuntwoman in Los Angeles. Being in great shape, and knowing her muscle strengths and limitations helped her succeed in this competitive field. After moving to Orange County, she has transitioned from stunt work to training to help adults, kids and elite athletes attain their goals in all areas of fitness. Current fitness certifications: Biomechanics Specialist, NESTA Certified Personal Trainer, Certified Nutrition Coach and a Pat Etcheberry Certified Trainer. This certification focuses on speed, agility, quickness, and fitness for tennis players. I work with my clients on strength and balance with a focus on rehabilitation exercises to prevent injuries.
Jessica discovered yoga in 2015, and hasn’t stopped immersing herself in it since then.

Jessica is RYT-500hr certified and has taught in a variety of settings, including yoga studios, corporate offices, gyms, personal development retreats, and assisted in 200-hr teacher training.

Nick's Aerial journey began back when she was 15 after taking her first dance class. Since then, she has trained and continues to train in a variety of dance styles. She is a firm believer that dance can help you learn anything. Feeling drawn to more athletic dancing, she began training under Diavolo company members and took Christopher Filkins's workshop on Zig. These more active dance styles lead to Nick's discovery and a lifelong passion for Acro of all sorts, and Aerial.
In 2012 Nick had the great pleasure of beginning her Aerial instructing career, teaching a wide assortment of "those crazy circus things" from Silks, Lyra, Trapeze, and Hammock, to Cube, Spanish Web, and other specialized apparatuses. Her classes focus on transitions, strength building, and breaking down skills and movement to their most basic elements. Having discovered her passion for teaching others, Nick enjoys instructing all ages, both young and young at heart, and looks forward to meeting you in class and watching you exceed your own expectations.

Meg Oka (SUB)
Meg Oka, RYT 200, specializes in power vinyasa, focusing on flows with dynamic movements and deep stretches. Her approach mixes breath-focused flows and calming energy with muscular intensity.

Meg believes everyone can benefit from yoga and encourages her students to mindfully practice on their mat, the climbing wall, and in their daily lives.
Pantea began her yoga practice as a way to de-stress while she was in school. Her practice inspired her to write a thesis on the effects of yoga on creativity. She practiced off and on for the next several years. Pantea was inspired to take a teacher training course in the same way many of us have our greatest idea - by reading a sign in the bathroom stall of her yoga studio. Pantea believes yoga allows us to live in a limitless world - where thoughts and preconceptions of our bodies and capabilities can be laid to rest - and our minds can start fresh. Her style is focused on open-heartedness and compassion for self and community; from this place we are able to grow whichever way we choose.
Nicole was born and raised in Hawaii, but moved to Southern California over 10 years ago. That's when she discovered yoga and developed an interested in learning more about the practice. It wasn't until her daughter was born that she decided to dive into a 200-hour yoga teaching training, in her home town of Kona, HI, and fell in love with teaching. Nicole specializes in slow flow vinyasa, where the focus is building stability and strength, cultivating awareness in body and mind, and allowing students time to explore poses and transitions. She loves to keep it balanced and fun by incorporating both strength and restoring qualities to each class. Nicole loves to be outdoors whether it's hiking, climbing, or camping, and recently hiked from Mexico to Canada on the Pacific Crest Trail with her 5 year old daughter and boyfriend.
Stephen Aldaco (SUB)
Stephen started his movement career when he studied dance in college with dance teachers such as Marie Del La Palme, Raul Cruz, Miriam & Leonardo to name a few. He found himself in his first yoga class for the mobility yoga offered and stayed after he fell in love with the spiritual, calming and meditative aspect of yoga. He completed his 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training at Core Power Yoga in Tustin. Stephen quickly made a name for himself in the O.C. area teaching Acroyoga & compassionate, fun yoga classes.

His classes are fun, light hearted guiding each student to advance within their own body, mentally, and spiritually.
