American Council On Exercise

Araceli De Leon, MS holds a bachelor's degree in kinesiology from San Diego State University (SDSU) and a master's degree in sports performance from Point Loma Nazarene University (PLNU). During her time at PLNU, she conducted her research on the effects of yoga on state and trait anxiety and well-being in college students. Araceli is a 500-hour registered yoga teacher and while most of her career in the industry was focused on behavior change science and guiding people in overcoming their physical and mental barriers, teaching yoga has allowed her to create a more person-centered experience where the practitioner has full autonomy of their own practice.

Araceli is also a certified health coach, personal trainer and group fitness instructor through the American Council on Exercise (ACE). Today she works as the business and career content manager for ACE, where she provides health and fitness professionals with the support and guidance needed in an evolving industry.
