Gina fell in love with yoga in an Ashtanga class in South Florida circa 1999. “I was the worse one in the class. The instructor could not believe how inflexible I was.” That motivated her to delve deeper. A fitness-ista (running, tennis, aerobics) yoga quickly became her favorite as she saw her body transform. “Yoga with it’s deep breathing and twists, works you inside out. Your body will function more efficiently -- the result is eating less and loving your body more.” Gina loves working with newbies. Her classes will challenge and nurture you mentally and physically.

Danielle Lindberg tried yoga over a decade ago and was immediately hooked. She loved the dynamic movement and the noticeable difference it made in her tension-burned neck and shoulders from being a "techie."

She also completed Eric Paskel's teacher training for a different perspective. Her style is described as very creative and challenging, yet accessible, with emphasis on alignment.

I am Debbie, a US Army Veteran from New York who found Yoga and was able to heal physically and mentally after many injuries. With a background in Exercise Science, Personal Training, and Nutrition, I added in Yoga and Meditation for a well-rounded approach to health and wellness. I like to help people realize that life is happening for us not to us and be able to transition from "I can't" to "I can” as I have. As a Health Coach and Yoga Instructor I help people remember to live each moment to the fullest on and off the mat. I feel I have an authentic and non-judgmental teaching style with a dose of inspiration to find real freedom. I also enjoy traveling the world and attending new trainings to expand my knowledge and tool box to share with others. It is so satisfying and meaningful to me to have students see a shift in perspective and ability. I look forward to working with you soon. Namaste.

The physical aspects drew Kelsey to yoga in 2006. She discovered something deeper, “Yoga is an important and transformative tool that can bring great perspective to life, both physically and spiritually.” Through yoga, Kelsey aims to assist the individual not only in developing strength, but also cultivating self-acceptance, confidence, stability, and overall well-being. Yoga helped her find happiness by simply being present on her mat, open to possibilities, ultimately becoming more whole and connected.
Kelsey continues to explore yoga through advanced workshops with yogis Steve Ross, Pradeep, Beryl Bender Birch, Bryan Kest, and Rolf Gates. Through the utilization of breath, drishti, bandhas, and a slightly irreverent sense of humor, Kelsey fosters an environment in which the student can feel at home .
I believe in Divine play, self exploration and love. Falling, laughing, slow movements, present moments, and feeling good vibrations to spread to every being. Incorporating conscious awareness of the mind, body, and soul into practice to find balance as well as performing at our highest frequencies. My yoga on and off the mat has been a journey of trust, learning to let go of fear, and to detach from the outcome, judgements, attachments, and expectation. There are hundreds of different styles of yoga to practice and teach, so in my opinion, why narrow it down to just one? Yoga comes from the acient sanskrit word yug, to "unify" body, mind, emotions, amd spirit. Every moment is an opportunity to experience wholeness. Let us explore intention to have the heart beat match the beat of the universe, to match our nature with nature. Read Alex's blog here.
