RACHEL BONIFACIO, RYT 200

                    Hatha Yoga, Vinyasa Flow, Prenatal and New Mommy Yoga, Restorative Yoga

                    and Meditation, Reiki Healer, Seraphim Blueprint Healer


Rach was introduced to yoga in 2011 when she was looking for an alternative relief for her Flat Back Syndrome and lumbar spine compression. After attaining physical relief, she realized that yoga was doing more than help her with her posture: she's learned to silence the chatter in her mind, accept and love herself more, and embrace stillness as a way to become her better self. She started studying Eastern philosophies, particularly Buddhism, Zen, and Taoism, and continues to deepen her relationship with herself and the Divine. She retired from 13 years in the corporate world and put up Treehouse Yoga to pursue her life purpose of changing the world, one yoga and meditation class at a time.

ALVIN GOMEZ, RYT 200

                    Hatha Yoga, Vinyasa Flow, Slow Vinyasa Flow, Yoga for Athletes

                    Yoga Therapy, Restorative Yoga


Treehouse's resident triathlete, Alvin's journey started primarily to enhance his physical abilities, learn how to optimize his performance as an athlete, and to better understand how the human body works. After a year of teaching, he began to delve into the more spiritual aspect of yoga, incorporating meditation and energy work in his practice, and started noticing how much more meaningful yoga can be for just about anyone.

CHRISTINE CAPILA, RYT 200


                    Hatha Yoga, Power Hatha Yoga, Vinyasa Flow, Restorative Yoga


After moving from one country to another half her life, Teng decided to settle down in Manila

and got into yoga in search of who she is. She found herself in a roomful of yoga teachers in training, not quite sure what she was doing there. Little did she know that apart from getting to know her true self, she was also going to help others do the same. She believes yoga has helped her smooth transition into another phase in her life, and has developed the best version of herself physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. Finding her assertive voice, her practice focuses on finding, building, and maintaining strength in all aspects of her students' lives.

JAN CEREZO, RYT 200


                    Hatha Yoga, Mat Yogalates


A ballerina and an award-winning DanceSport athlete, Jan’s approach to yoga is all about

improving the way one moves his/her body, specifically by focusing on how to activate and draw strength from the core muscles to support safe and effective movement in the body. Jan’s classes are a powerful fusion of the Pilates methodology of core stability and the yoga asanas. His goal for every class is to be able to get his students to activate and stabilize the deep core muscles while improving posture, flexibility, balance and overall body strength. He believes that by creating positive changes in the body, one also indirectly creates positive changes in his/her attitude and state of mind. He’s currently undergoing Pilates Teacher Training with Polestar Pilates Asia.



JOY JACINTO, RYT 200


                   Hatha Yoga, Power Hatha Yoga, Vinyasa Flow, Restorative/Yin Yoga, Meditation


Joy started practicing yoga in 2007 when she organized classes for the employees of the company she was then working for. Attending classes of various traditions and in different studios in the years that followed, she found yoga to be physically challenging and therapeutic. In 2016, she said goodbye to 14 years of corporate life and enlisted into Yoga Teacher Training. Today, Joy works on looking at life in a three-dimensional perspective, achieving emptiness and fulfillment through the coordination of one's body, mind, and authenticity -- a belief that she feels is worth sharing with her students via asanas, meditation, and breath work.
