Rise Yoga’s Story

Christelle Reigner, founder of Rise Yoga HB, started hosting Rise Yoga classes in 2012 after coming back from India where she studied the teachings of yoga with Maty Ezraty from Sri K. Pattabhi Jois lineage.

She was so inspired to teach authentic yoga classes, she had to grow out of the traditional OC yoga studios and began teaching her own classes. Her community grew rapidly and made its home on Gothard street in 2015. These walls witnessed many transformative yoga classes and workshops until 2020 when COVID-19 forced us to shut our doors but Christelle continues to share her love for a meaningful practice with Park Yoga classes, Baby and mommy Yoga and more.

"Thankful for this compassionate good natured group that consistently uplifts the community with yoga and activities that enhance the lives of others with positive energy creativity and mindful goals."
