Vivian Taylor

Born and raised in another country in my early years, being physically active was just natural. As I got older, working behind the desk slowly steered me away from being active and staying fit. Once I came to realize how much of a beating the desk had on my body, I sought a way out, beginning with Bikram yoga 14 years ago.

The more I practiced, the fewer problems I had physically. Inspired by great instructors, I got certified. Once I established myself with hot yoga, I felt the need for more, so it was on to Pilates. I fell in love with it in an instant. The music, the movements and the way the class made me feel during and after. Another certification was a must.

Teaching and practicing both are just the perfect combo for me. Six years later, here I am, at Evolution Yoga, a community studio that is close to my home and to many. As a businesswoman coming to fitness later on, I appreciate how transformative it is. For each person, there is a different key to change, and I get pleasure from inspiring and guiding you in making more of yourself.

I invite you with open arms and no judgments to take my class. My heart-pounding music and a mixture of movements from core workout to cardio to weight lifting, will challenge you to push your edge with some fun in the process. Always, keep it simple, and let it go...! Namaste.

Jessica Rivas

After spending her childhood and teenage years in Texas, Jessica and her son made their way to Las Vegas in 2011. Shortly after, she began attending yoga classes to keep a clear mind and a healthy body. From then she was introduced to Pilates and other mat fitness classes which changed her life. She was immediately drawn to the challenging workout that Pilates had to offer. After struggling with underweight health complications, Pilates has proven to help Jessica maintain an ideal body mass. Practicing was not enough; she wanted to be able to share the power of Pilates with the world. The timing could not be more perfect as Evolution’s Pilates teacher training course went underway. Jessica took this great opportunity and completed the intense, yet satisfying 50 hour Hot Pilates certification. Upon completing the course her belief in being healthy spiritually, mentally, and physically is stronger than ever. She’s now aiming to help others achieve their fitness goals by teaching with a great sense of positivity and creating a comfortable atmosphere here at the House of Love!
A great way to relieve muscle soreness and build muscle at the same time.  This class uses the technique of traditional mat pilates and the intensity of cardio intervals to create a whole body work out.  This class is designed for all levels.
