Sebastian Steinbach

Sebastian grew up in rural Germany, surrounded by forest, meadows and creeks. After discovering much of Europe through his studies, work and extensive travel, his sense of adventure pulled him "out west" and into San Francisco. He enjoyed volunteering in his children's sports teams, cub scouts, and school organizations, and discovered his talent for creating unique experiences during the many birthday parties of his three children. The Wild Hearts Kids Club blends this heritage with inspiration from Sebastian's transformational inner work at Leap Forward, the outrageous, playful creativity of Burning Man, his experience as a Martial Arts teacher, and his own "wild heart" that still loves to explore, discover and play "full out"!

Pattie Makuta

Pattie feels so very blessed to have been able to teach and share her  love for dance and yoga for a total of over eighteen years.  Her innate affinity for expression through movement led her to excel in ballet at a young age.  By 16, she became a dancer and later a soloist for the Utah  Ballet company, and also began teaching all levels of ballet from toddlers through advanced students.  Pattie also received many scholarships to the University of Utah as a ballet major of fine arts where she studied ballet technique, performance  repertoire,  jazz,  modern dance, Pilates, teaching technique, and kinesiology.  She continues to dance and perform in the bay area whenever possible. Pattie is also the founder of Butterfly Yoga, San Mateo.
