Casey Angulo, Owner
A couple years ago Casey started having some getting older aches and pains (sigh...). Having loved yoga in the past she decided to get serious about it and address these issues. Not only did it get rid of these problems, it has made her life so much easier. Things like picking her kids toys up off the floor became a snap. She has more strength and loves the stress relief. She also has fun party tricks like standing on her head. She thinks practicing yoga is the fountain of youth. When the previous owner Lauren moved she felt so strongly about keeping Reveille alive that she purchased the yoga studio-- (on May 1st, 2015)! Casey does not instruct.

BETH HILL-SKINNER, INSTRUCTOR
Beth’s personal meditation practice began in 2013 at the Chopra Center in Carlsbad, CA. A health crisis in her life forced her to look for answers outside of the traditional surgical or pharmacological solutions. She found the benefits of meditation to be so powerful she decided to train under Deepak Chopra and the Chopra Center staff to become a certified meditation instructor. As a core fundamental practice for grounding, to help with inner calm, & to enhance clarity, Beth shares the teachings and tools of meditation with her students and private clients.
Following her certification in meditation at the Chopra Center, Beth felt a calling to further her studies in Ayurveda. Ayurveda is the ancient healing approach to health, wellbeing, and maintaining a body able to age well. Following a second intensive training program, Beth secured a certification in Ayurvedic medicine and healing. Through the disciplines of both Meditation and Ayurveda she is able to provide a full complement of services to her clients.
Knowing that healing & wellbeing start from the inside out, Beth likes to support both her students and clients in reaching optimal wellbeing. Food, environment, sleep, emotional states, toxicity, stress, and more; all play a role in your HEALTH. Beth considers ‘health’ to always include, mind, emotions, body, and spirit. One of her specialties is to help those she works with to believe in the power of resilience.
Beth also works with people who suffer from chronic pain at a clinic in Loma Linda. Western medicine no longer considers modalities such as meditation or Ayurvedic wisdom methods as ‘alternative’. Instead the trend is toward “Integrative Medicine” or “Lifestyle Medicine”. Having worked in the U.S. military as a Drug & Alcohol counselor several decades in the past, her understanding of the role of medicine, addictions, and dependency along with her deep understanding for how chronic pain wrecks havoc on all the systems of the body, Beth is able to bring compassionate support to those who need relief. With a track record for helping her patients achieve measurable improvements she is currently writing a book which will share many of the techniques and approaches that have been helpful to her patients.
Many who come to Reveille Yoga Studio want to learn meditation to help alleviate the harmful effects of stress. Beth has been able to share stress-reduction methods in her classes, some of which can be used away from the Studio for effective stress-reduction, even in the workplace.
Whether you want to learn how to integrate meditation in to your life or you feel it is time to look at your health, your energy, or even your aging process, Beth will help you find those keys to feeling your best self.
