The Anatomy of Yoga
with Victor Dubin

Victor has been teaching yoga full time in Santa Cruz since 1996. He currently teaches 14 classes per week at NOURISH, the wellness center he co-owns with his wife Jocelyn Dubin, in downtown Santa Cruz. Influenced by Hatha, Iyengar, and Vinyasa styles of yoga, Victor believes that "yoga is not about attempting to fit people into particular models of practice, but creating space for people to discover themselves."

He has worked with thousands of students and is adept at introducing yoga beginners to the fundamentals of a healthy yoga practice and helping more experienced students advance their yoga techniques. Victor has also assisted athletes, pregnant women, new mothers, surfers, dancers, and other individuals in Santa Cruz looking to support health and wellness.

One student says of Victor's classes, "his challenging yet humorous teaching style fosters both rigorous study in the yogic tradition as well as self exploration. His expertise in anatomy, the art of adjustments and his comprehensive understanding of the asanas compliment yogic philosophy." For many students it's this combination of taking his work seriously while NOT taking himself too seriously that keeps them coming back.

Additionally, Victor is the director of and primary yoga instructor for the NOURISH Yoga Teacher Training Program, voted the Best Yoga Teacher Training Program in Santa Cruz. He develops and teaches classes in anatomy, physiology, in depth posture exploration, meditation, philosophy and history. He also teaches How to Teach Yoga and guides student-teachers in the art and science of class development and instruction.

Curvy Yoga
with Vicki Hibbert

 

Curvy girls Unite! All levels are welcome to join Certified Curvy Yoga Instructor Vicky Hibbert for a fun, full bodied, love oriented yoga class. No yoga experience necessary. Enroll and pay to secure your spot! Vicki Hibbert has been teaching Hatha yoga for two years and has been practicing yoga for seven. Initially drawn to yoga as cross-training for other exercise, she discovered that the benefits of yoga went beyond the physical. Vicki loves how much calmer she feels after a practice and enjoys the deeper connection with her physical self. Seeking to deepen her yoga practice in 2013, Vicki began teacher training at Yoga Spirit Academy under Dr. Janet Parachin and her husband Dr. Victor Parachin. An interest in body positivity led her to the work of Anna Guest-Jelly and Curvy Yoga and Vicki earned her Curvy YogaTM certification in 2016. Vicki has also studied Yin Yoga and the work of Jill Miller of Yoga Tune UpTM. Vicki has taught yoga in a CrossFit “Box,” a martial arts studio, and on a volunteer basis at the local jail. Currently, Vicki is teaching Curvy Yoga classes at Studio Pop and The Yoga Room in Tulsa. Curvy Yoga is body-affirming yoga for people of all sizes that helps you feel good about your body on and off the mat. Its alignment cues help yoga work for the body you have today. Vicki hopes that Curvy Yoga can bring the transformational practice of yoga to people who never thought it was available to them.
