Welcome to our teachers page!

Even though our studio has transitioned to a completely ONLINE PLATFORM. We still want to help you find your favorite teachers. Here you will find a little note about each teacher and a book now button to view their schedule. The beauty of this is you can support each teacher individually by booking and paying for classes directly with them, therefore any drop in classes, memberships or class packages purchased are for each teacher separately. Each teacher will have classes ranging from different styles, lengths of class, and how you can join, whether in-person or live stream.

While I have been practicing for this moment my whole life, I have been practicing yoga seriously since 2016. I believe in living in the moment and being present in our daily lives and personal interactions.  Yoga has been a powerful tool, which has helped me, recover from injury, and maintain health and strength both physically and mentally. It has been a great way for me to reduce stress, develop friendships and build community.

I particularly love a good sweaty, challenging vinyasa class and enjoy creating flows that are accessible to the newest yogi while providing a great platform for the more experienced yogi to add their own special sauce.

I also enjoy laughing and silliness and keep the atmosphere lite and fun. If you can’t laugh at yourself in yoga class…

Janell Silveira


Hi, my name is Janell. I received my 200 RYT though The Yoga house in 2017. The Yoga House has always felt like a second home to me. I love movement and the constant growth the comes from moving, weather it’s on the mat or off the mat. I enjoy a good sweat as well as gentle and restorative class.

Learning how to balance life with with my two kids, a  9 to 5, and everything that comes in between is much easier to process  knowing that I have time on my yoga mat to look forward to. Yoga has become much more then a workout for me,  It’s time for healing, growing, releasing, discovering, and connecting.

Catch me on Tuesdays from 7:00-8:15pm for VINYIN. To join class simply click the book now button to email me or text me at (707)853-7530. I will send you payment information and the link to join!

I look forward to seeing you on your mat!

Exercise has always played an important role in my life. From an early age I was drawn to anything aquatic because I felt graceful in the water; later in life I found that same grace in movement through yoga, with its fluidity and endless options for expression inspiring me every day. My first studio as a student in Brooklyn allowed me to experience beauty in motion with yoga and yoga fusion, while connecting me more deeply with a rich and diverse community. After moving back to Benicia I was ecstatic to find a passionate yoga community-- the community through BYH has seen me through so many important life changes, including the transition from student to teacher. I love the energetic power yoga can have and its corresponding softness and surrender in poses. I strive to lead classes that strike a balance, leaving students feeling accomplished as well as peaceful.
