I wrote a micro story about Green Tara, the Mother of Liberation and all Buddhas. She is quick to help those who have lost their way. She is a metaphor, a star leading to enlightenment.

BOOTCAMP is a Two-week HIIT Circuit Training Program.


I LOVE to lead BootCamps in LA! Here's what Campers have to say.

Core Power Yoga BootCamp was amazing!!

By Day 3 I started noticing I had more energy, was more focused at work.   

I gained three hours of productive time - ready to start my day at 7AM.

My spinning teacher noticed a big change in my strength and endurance.

Malaika is a hi-energy, nurturing coach and her assistants were the best.

Sign me up for the next one!

-Robyn S.



I love love love this place!! Core Power Yoga is simply the best in Los Angeles and instructor Malaika is the best there is!

Her sculpt and boot camp classes kick your butt and are by far the best of all classes at the studio! Well worth the expensive membership in my opinion and recommend it to all levels of yoga lovers.
