Pam Kessinger created ALREADY WITHIN Yoga studio here at Pedalers Fork in 2018. Pam specializes in Recovery Yoga - a therapeutic form of Yoga she crafted to help prevent and recover from injury. Pam works with local professional athletes (NFL, NBA, cyclists, etc.) and has worked with the Los Angeles Rams, Dallas Cowboys, US Army Special Forces, Navy Seals and Wounded Warriors.
You can find Pam teaching weekly classes, teacher trainings and workshops. Her classes are filled with thoughtful alignment themes and insightful adjustments but with a light hearted, playful approach. Her ability to see the body is influenced by her 20+ years of practice, teaching and training in both yoga, fitness and meditation.
Her vision in creating this studio was to develop a variety of offerings and build a community where people from all walks of life can come for growth and nourishment of their body, mind and soul. She believes yoga should be fun and uses breathwork as a gateway to remind us to be still, to listen and to know everything we seek is Already Within each of us.

Casey is a certified yoga instructor, meditation guide, and Evolutionary Astrologer. Her classes blend physical movement with mindfulness practices, and can include asana, pranayama, ecstatic dance, guided visualization and meditation. As a metaphysical philosopher and student of Jungian Psychology, Casey additionally facilitates workshops and courses that blend astrology and the wisdom of the Yoga Tantra.
Casey says, “I feel deeply passionate about ending the war between the ecstatic and the mundane, the spiritual and the material. My service is to guide people back to their own divinity, in the most literal sense. Enlightenment and heaven are not destinations to be reached, rather states of being that can be accessed simply by tapping into the wholeness that exists Already Within each and every one of us.”

Rachel found the practice of yoga in her early 20’s, during a time in her life she was self admittedly “not living a healthy lifestyle”. The practice captivated her immediately, as she noticed after just one class how revived, energized and at peace she felt. While other habits at that time quickly overtook her newfound love for yoga, she found herself coming back at various points through out her life, and each time she came back, it was as if she’d never left.
Eventually yoga became a regular and consistent practice for Rachel, and when she learned of a teacher training approaching at the studio in San Francisco she had come to love and find a home at, it felt like a natural progression to become certified as a teacher. Less an a year later in 2018, Rachel came to Los Angeles and has since been teaching yoga for private events, retreats and in studio.
Her style of teaching is loving, encouraging, and a beautiful balance between intensity and softness. Her intention is to embody self love through the practice of yoga, and transmit that to her students.
Mike Bücher discovered yoga while on the road as a touring musician, a job that left him depleted and disconnected from himself. Utilizing the principles of a breath-centered practice, Mike was able to once again experience intimacy with the world around him, and more importantly, experience intimacy within himself.
He has been practicing and facilitating yoga ever since, and believes strongly that there is a right yoga for everyone. He is passionate about introducing people to a practice that is useful, and that they can take with them wherever they go. Mike is certified through the Yoga Alliance (500ERYT). He received Trauma Informed Certification through Uprising Yoga, and is a Certified Life Coach through Rose Yoga Australia.
Mike is a longtime student of Mark Whitwell, who teaches yogic principles as taught to him directly by T.K.V. Desikachar and T. Krishnamacharya.
