ALIAS : yogini Malena

Malena Halle began her journey in the world of movement as a dedicated ballerina, where she developed a profound appreciation for grace, discipline, and the art of connecting breath with movement. She graduated from UCSB with a degree in Dance and Communication. After over a decade of immersing herself in yoga, she decided to deepen her practice amidst Bali’s serene and spiritual surroundings, where she received her 200 YTT Certification. Now residing in the heart of Santa Monica, Malena brings her unique background in dance, yoga, and eastern-world philosophies to her teaching. Her classes are a harmonious fusion of fluidity and precision, emphasizing the beauty of mindful movement and the importance of balance in body and mind. She is committed to creating an empowering environment, guiding her students to discover their strength, flexibility, and inner peace.

Whether leading a soulful flow, a restorative session, or an invigorating practice, my teaching style is marked by compassionate guidance, joyful radiance, and belief in the transformative power of yoga. I primarily touch on Vinyasa, Yin, Hatha, Pranayama, and meditative practices, believing yoga to be a form of medicine. I love sharing my passion for movement and wellness helping my students embark on their own journeys of self-discovery and holistic well-being.

“It’s all figureoutable” – instead of worrying what might happen, or what might not happen, believing and having confidence that you’ll figure it out when it does, leads to inner calm.
