Meet the Instructors:
Belle Hammond (Moraga Bootcamp)
Moraga Bootcamp is designed for all levels of fitness. Maybe you haven’t worked out a day in your life or you are looking to add something new to an already established fitness routine. Are you feeling the stress/worries of these tough times? Need a place to disconnect or press pause for 50 min? I welcome you! At Moraga Bootcamp my promise is to meet each one of our clients where they are in their current journey while providing the tools and coaching necessary to help meet current and future goals — oh and did I mention we will have lots of FUN while doing it?!
Katie Rogers (Atma Yoga)
Katie is a yogi, MFT, runner, local Orindan and mom of 4. Katie became a yoga teacher in 2006 in order to pass along to others the wealth of benefits she has received from yoga. Katie believes yoga has the ability to heal, unite, awaken and transform. Katie teaches Vinyasa flow style yoga where students are challenged to find their edge in an encouraging environment. Katie’s goal is that students leave her class having cultivated a sense of calm, clarity and a physical and mental release.
Dina Ricksen (Joy in Motion-Mat Pilates)
Dina has more than 20 years experience teaching Pilates and has been a student of the practice for much longer. Dina has always been a health and fitness enthusiast and has played sports throughout her life. She discovered Pilates in high school as a valuable compliment to her athletics and fell in love with the mind-body focus. The results she achieved were unlike anything she had experienced before. After studying education at UC Berkeley, followed by a few years in the corporate world after, her heart brought her back to Pilates and she decided to get certified as an instructor through Body Arts and Sciences International. Dina went on to teach at several popular studios in San Francisco before moving to Moraga to start a family and open her private practice. She’s a mom of two, a soccer coach, a lover of dance and is beyond grateful to have found Joy In Motion and for the opportunity to introduce and teach Pilates mat to this incredible community!
Christine Vleck (Mighty Pilates)
Christine has been teaching pilates for 15 years in various studios in San Francisco including Mighty Pilates and Equinox before moving to Moraga in 2018. She is currently working on opening a Mighty Pilates studio in Lafayette while also working a full time corporate job at CLIF Bar leading the Shopper and eCommerce marketing teams. She holds a degree in Nutrition from Cornell University and an MBA from UC Berkeley’s Haas School of Business. Fitness has been a part of her life for as long as she can remember. She played Division 1 softball and after college took up running and triathlon and has completed an Ironman, several marathons and has cycled around the South Island of New Zealand as well as biked the entire coast of California from Eureka to Los Angeles. Most recently she spends her time running after her two daughters who are 2 and 5. Christine is thrilled to be opening Mighty Pilates Studio in Lafayette (opening in July 2022) with her business partner Cricket Wardein.
