Instructor Spotlight- Paige Hattesohl Yoga

For Paige, yoga started out as a purely physical practice to supplement and improve
her many athletic interests. However, it didn’t take long before she realized that yoga went way
beyond the physical, and deep into the mental and spiritual realms. At this point, she was
hooked and knew from the depth of her soul that yoga would forever be a part of her life. After
nearly 8 years of her own personal practice, she decided to follow her heart’s calling and
become a yoga instructor herself, to positively change others’ lives the way that yoga has
changed her own.

As a teacher, Paige first ensures that her students find proper alignment in poses, and
then, she strives to help them go beyond just the physical asanas and move deeper into their
breath practice so they leave feeling at peace with themselves and the world around them. She
meets her students where they’re at and helps them build from there, setting up a strong, solid
foundation from which to grow and develop as a human being. Her goal is to encourage people
to adopt a yoga lifestyle both on and off the mat, in order to achieve a true balance of mind,
body, spirit. She firmly believes that yoga has the power to change the world, one breath at a

Favorite Recipe: Veggie Enchiladas

Ingredients for Sauce:

– 2 pounds fresh tomatillos, husked and quartered
– 1 medium white onion, coarsely chopped
– 2 garlic cloves, chopped
– 1 jalapeño, seeded and coarsely chopped
– 2 cups vegetable stock
– 1/2 cup chopped cilantro
– Salt and freshly ground pepper

Ingredients for Enchiladas:

– 2 cups butternut squash, diced ( 1/2-inch)
– 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
– Salt and freshly ground pepper
– 1 medium onion, finely chopped
– 2 shallots, minced
– 2 cups frozen corn kernels
– 2 cups finely chopped Lacinato kale
– 1 cup canola oil
– 12 corn tortillas
– Sliced avocado and red onion, cilantro leaves and toasted pumpkin seeds, for serving.

How to Make It:

Step 1

In a large saucepan, combine the tomatillos, onion, garlic, jalapeño and stock and bring to a simmer. Cook over moderate heat until the vegetables are tender, about 15 minutes. Transfer the mixture to a food processor, add the cilantro and puree until smooth. Season with salt and pepper.

Step 2

Preheat the oven to 400°. In a small baking pan, toss the squash pieces with 1 tablespoon of the olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Roast for 15 minutes, until tender. Remove the squash from the oven and lower the temperature to 375°.

Step 3

Meanwhile, in a large skillet, heat the remaining 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Add the onion and shallots and cook over moderate heat until softened, 5 minutes. Add the shiitake and cook until lightly browned, about 6 minutes. Add the corn and kale and cook until the kale is wilted, 5 minutes. Add the squash and season with salt and pepper.

Step 4

In a large nonstick skillet, heat the canola oil. Dip 1 tortilla into the hot oil and cook just until pliable, turning once, about 10 seconds. Drain the tortilla on paper towels and repeat with the remaining tortillas.

Step 5

Spoon 1 cup of the tomatillo sauce into a 9-by-13-inch glass or ceramic baking dish. Arrange all of the
tortillas on a work surface and divide the filling between them. Roll up the enchiladas and arrange them in the baking dish, seam sides down. Spoon 2 cups of the sauce on top. Cover the dish with foil and bake for about 25 minutes, until the enchiladas are heated through. Serve with avocado, red onion, cilantro, and pumpkin seeds.


I joined ABC looking for a yoga studio but found pilates was more of my speed. This is not just a place to exercise but an environment where friends come together to get fit, healthy, and happy.
I love the instructors who take good care of everyone. I always get the best encouragement possible! I also like the small class sizes for anything from yoga and pilates to Zumba and TRX.
Thanks, ABC Fitness Studio, for making being healthy fun!

When my wife convinced me to try ABC Fitness, little did I know it would become an almost daily fixture in my life.
I enjoy multiple classes weekly and each is very special in approach to strength, balance, core, flexibility, and overall fitness. Feeling better and stronger physically leads to more enjoyment in all activities.
I feel stronger and fitter and look forward to continuing to rely on ABC Fitness as an integral part of my life.

I’ve been doing pilates for almost 3 years now, and I feel stronger and have improved functionally in my daily activities
I was recommended by my physical therapist when I was a patient with many joint problems. My PT thought Pilates would help me, and it did!
I feel stronger, and have a better tone, range of motion, and a stronger core. I can get up from a low sofa with less effort now as my core plus legs are stronger; I owe all these improvements to Pilates. My teacher is patient and kind, always helpful — thank you!

I have been with ABC for about 7 years, and its biggest benefit has to be no more lower back pain and much more flexibility. Love it here!

I love ABC Fitness!!! Over the years, I’ve worked out at many places, but this is the first one I absolutely love — so much so that I usually come 7 days a week! What is so special are the small classes that mean lots of individual attention, the extraordinarily knowledgeable instructors, and the nice variety of classes. It has been a huge benefit to my well-being.
