Benito Dutcher

It was December of 2014 that I walked into a yoga studio. I had heard about yoga. I thought it was about breathing, stretching and Hindu gods, which is all fine, but I wanted a workout. (That makes me smile because of the many times I have found myself in child pose looking for the energy to keep going, no matter how effortless I had intended my practice to be--maybe especially because I had made this intention.) Then I found Bikyasa and I was in heaven and in love. I left those classes feeling like superman with the wind at his back. I had to fight the urge to leap off tall buildings. I like to describe Bikyasa as the barb on the hook of yoga that didn't allow me to spit it out. Not the prettiest of analogies, but it is a good one. The workout I found was not just for the body and mind, but for the Spirit, Mind and Body, and in that order.

Jaclyn Trejo

Jaclyn found yoga back in 2009 in her living room watching a DVD, during a time of personal struggles. Through self-taught yoga, she found self-love and peace within herself. She quickly fell into a consistent, dedicated practice of mostly Hot Vinyasa, while living in San Antonio, TX, having the honor of practicing with some of the best instructors in the country. Jaclyn was influenced to teach and share her love of yoga with others when she relocated back home to New Mexico. She received her 200 YTT certification through Casa De Yoga in El Paso TX in 2015, and plans on continuing her education to help others that may be going through their own personal struggles by finding peace on and off the mat, and creating their own sacred space. Yoga has become a huge part of her life giving her the time a space she needs being a stay at home mom of three. Through a variety of poses, and conscious sequencing, Jaclyn's classes will build strength, flexibility, and balance through stability, as well as provide the space to discover the truth in transition, and the sense of lightness you're looking for in your practice.

She strives to provide balanced, challenging sequences with options for everyone from beginners to seasoned practitioners. She also enjoys teaching private yoga sessions, with customized sequences based on the client's needs and desires.

Meg Long

Meg Long began her 13 + years of yoga practice while serving as a Peace Corps volunteer in Kenya. She found the meditative aspect of yoga helped to maintain her mental well-being while working with high risk populations in extremely stressful environments. Throughout her 14 years of successful work in Social Services, she has found yoga to be a strong foundation for staying motivated and determined. Her love of helping others through difficult times led to a transition into teaching, initially through trauma informed yoga for community members recovering from alcohol and drug addiction. She found not only does the meditative aspect of yoga help with emotion healing, but also with physical healing. Though the Hot 26 series, Meg was able to heal her torn rotator cuff without the aid surgery. She also works for the Wellness, Alcohol, and Violence Education program at NMSU and teaches several Public Health courses.
