Ariel Johnson |
Ariel is a group fitness teacher, personal trainer, and mother of two. When she's not chasing after her kids or leading a thoughtfully sequenced class at a local studio, you'll find her playing outside--hiking, cycling, climbing, and dancing.
Trained as a classical ballet dancer, Ariel shifted her love of ballet to yoga and various fitness modalities in her early twenties. Over time she recognized that her lifelong passion for wellness and movement could be channeled and shared with others, and her journey into teaching began. Today, her aim is to provide clear, intelligent instruction that will enable her clients to live and move with ease in their bodies at any age, any size, and any health history.
Beyond her career, Ariel loves being an active member of her community and gives back by organizing a free monthly 'Ride and Flow' event with Bay Bikes and lululemon athletica Monterey, using yoga, nature, and cycling to foster human connection. One of her greatest joys in the last year has been teaching yoga to children in public school programs and for the Wahine Project. She is thrilled to team up with Fleet Feet Monterey as a trusted fitness professional, taking part in their recent Nice Girl Nation Fitness Festival, and the upcoming Ton of Fun program.
