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.

Saharu Oda

Saharu dove deeply into practice in NYC. Through yoga, Saharu was able to find grounding during her dental school years and in her go-go-go lifestyle of living in NYC. She is extremely grateful of her experience of living in in the city where there are yoga studios on every block. Due to that, she was able to experience many styles of yoga such as: Baptiste Power Vinyasa Yoga, Prana Flow, Anusara, Jivamukti, and Kundalini to name a few. Saharu hopes to bring the same love she experienced through yoga to her community to help them cope with their daily stresses. With that intention, she was motivated to open Indigo Yoga here in Las Cruces. She aspires to create the inner-calmness that she finds every time she settles into her mat after her long day of work as a dentist.

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.
