VibeFlow Yoga studio launches at One Paseo
San Diego native Billy Borja has opened a VibeFlow Yoga studio in the One Paseo shopping center. The yoga practice incorporates Whole Body Vibration Technology and an audio immersion experience. VibeFlow Yoga incorporates plates built into a proprietary studio floor that use vertical vibration to stimulate the body. Muscles contract thousands more times than they normally would, thus increasing strength and improving balance. During the 50-minute sessions, 20 minutes are done with vibration plates set at a frequency appropriate for beginner, intermediate or advanced level. Depending on the level, VibeFlow Yoga uses either Power Hatha or Vinyasa Flow yoga styles. Rooms are slightly heated and the vibration plates also warm the body, allowing greater stretch and deeper poses. Instructors guide classes through a specially designed audio system. Borja is a martial artist, and also owns three Orangetheory Fitness locations.

Vibration Plates Shake Up Yoga
VIBEFLOW PLANS TO EXPAND ITS FOOTPRINT
There are plenty of traditional yoga studios in San Diego to choose from, but if you search for studios that use vibration plates as part of their practice, you will only find one.
VibeFlow Yoga, which uses vibration plates that claim to help with blood flow, joint pain, balance and coordination, among other benefits, according to founder and CEO Billy Borja, opened at One Paseo in Carmel Valley midsummer. Placed on the floor/under the user’s feet, the plates vibrate between 20Hz to 60Hz, or three levels (beginner, intermediate and advanced). Yogis are provided noise cancellation headphones that play music and the instructor’s voice, as well as help minimize the sound of the plates’ vibrations on the floor, Borja said. Classes cost $30/hour and there are membership options based on attendance frequency that range from $9 to $20 per session.
