ABOUT THE TEACHERS
Paris is a Los Angeles native who found her love for yoga 8 years ago during her time in college at Georgetown University. Upon graduation, she decided to pursue a career as a realtor and help others with their moves to or within LA. In 2017, Paris became a certified vinyasa yoga instructor so that she could more easily share all of the wonderful benefits that yoga has to offer. She loves teaching an empowering and vigorous flow, but creates balance by focusing on mindfully breathing and safe alignment, making her classes suitable and enjoyable for all levels.
Through her brand P by Paris, she strives to promote overall lifestyle wellness (physical, financial, mental, and spiritual) by encouraging others to make more time for self-care and to find a balance between their personal and professional lives.
Founder of Thorne Wellness, Becca works with women from all around the world supporting and empowering them on their journeys to live their most authentic, intentional, joyous lives in bodies that they love, respect, and cherish. She’s a yoga teacher, international holistic health coach, retreat leader, writer, and Beauty counter advocate. Becca is from Los Angeles but has been a local to Athens, Greece since 2014.
Becca first found yoga 14 years ago in LA. Yoga became her medicine during her depression and healed her from trauma, both saving and transformation her life mind, body, and soul. In the past six years since her first yoga teacher training, it has been Becca’s passion to share these healing powers of yoga with the world. Since then she has completed 730-hour of yoga teacher training in vinyasa, transformational hatha, restorative, yin and yang, pre and post-natal, therapeutic, and SUP yoga.
In 2016 Becca graduated from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition as an internationally certified holistic health coach, expanding her yoga business to include all health and wellness: what we put in our bodies, on our bodies, and how we move our bodies as well as how we feel about our bodies, how we use our minds, and how we honor our souls.
PARIS & BECCA
Becca and Paris have been friends since they were 7 years old, before either one of them knew what yoga was. It’s serendipitous that they both landed on the path of teaching yoga. The 1st SoCal Weekend of Wellness in Spring 2019 was their first retreat together and it was a huge success. They’ve also led an international retreat together in Mykonos, Greece in Fall 2019. Paris and Becca have experienced and seen the transformation and impact that these wellness getaways have in their attendees lives. They’re excited to host this retreat to help you access your unique wellness intuition and elevate your life.
ABOUT THE YOGA CLASSES
Classes are all levels, so whether you’re a seasoned practitioner or you’re new to yoga, you’ll be taken care of.
Paris will lead the Saturday & Sunday morning yoga classes. You can expect her class to challenge your physical limits, bring you greater knowledge of your body and breath in the poses, and most importantly to laugh and let go. You’ll leave her classes feeling more open in your body and mind and ready to take on the day!
Becca will lead the Friday & Saturday night yoga class. She’ll teach a mix of restorative and yin asanas, pranayama (breath-work), and meditation, bringing you into deeper alignment on all levels—physically, mentally, emotionally, energetically, and spiritually. You can expect her classes to open your body, calm your mind, and soothe your spirit, allowing for complete relaxation.

ABOUT THE SOUND HEALER
"Soul Sounding is a transmission of high vibrational energetic tones that help shift you (the listener) into a deeper state of awareness, allowing you to re-member Home. Home is where the Heart is . . . where unconditional love, unlimited joy, and peace reside. This tonal offering has the potential of slowing down if not completely halting confusing mental chatter giving you the opportunity to enter into a timeless state of balance and clarity." - David Kennet
Throughout his childhood, David suffered from debilitating, life-threatening chronic asthma. However, shortly after he began singing regularly in his early 20's, his asthma miraculously began to completely heal. "Singing literally saved my life,” says David.
David is a voice coach, Reiki Master, Registered Holistic Nutritionist and Allergist, and Massage Therapist. At age 21, he made his debut at New York City’s Lincoln Center with the internationally acclaimed a cappella group the Star-Scape Singers. He has lectured and offered workshops across Europe, Russia, the Middle East and ching. He shares over 25 years of experience utilizing the “open voice” and is a protege of the late Canadian metaphysician Kenneth G. Mill. David also studied with sound healers Tom Kenyon and Jonathan Goldman and is a member of the Sound Healers Association. In addition to his private professional practice, David as offered lectures on the practical application of sound therapy for the University of Santa Barbara California, Antioch University, Bastyr University, and the United States Air Force.
ABOUT THE REIKI PRACTITIONER
Lala, a name I’ve grown with and into every moment. I sought after healing practices to cultivate peace within and move through childhood traumas. Ultimately this propelled me toward my highest potential opening doors to a 200 RYT certification through Om Joyful Yoga in 2013. Within my yoga teacher training I found reiki to complement the work I was doing on and off the mat. Reiki is universal life force energy. As a Reiki I & II practitioner and Reiki Master student we are conduits to this universal life force energy of love and compassion. With most looking to reiki practitioners as healers we remind those receiving reiki that we are not healers we are conduits, we simply bridge the connection to life force energy and allow it to flow through us and what the recipient is willing and open to receive they will receive which allowed the universal life force to do what the recipient needs for themselves. You do the healing! As you have everything within your divine spark to write you’re story and experience your life as you choose!
