Kishan Yoga Instructor

My journey began in 2013 to pursue mental and physical balance. I received my credentials as a 200 hr RYT from Yoga to the People in 2016. My classes are form and flow oriented leading students to build a better awareness of their body and encouraging a safe, playful and transformative practice. I am a firm believer in form following function, and if you function properly things will form themselves.

Aura Yoga Instructor

In February 2017, I completed my 200hr  certification from Bodhi Yoga Academy in Jackson, NJ while I was 6 months pregnant. In my classes, you can expect to be challenged and build strength. I believe that if it does not challenge you, it does not change you and fear isn't a good enough excuse. What I love about yoga is that we will never perfect it. It's truly a practice where we become stronger and grow both on and off our mats. How much progress we see is determined by our dedication. 

Let's practice and grow together! I look forward to seeing you on the mat!

Tyler Kids Yoga Instructor 

I remember as a child each morning, before getting ready for school, my great cousin would wake me up to stretch alongside my bed. Reach up, reach down, pull forward, pull back, twist from side to side. That simple impression led me to my love and practice of yoga.We need compassion in our individual minds, bodies and daily interactions with others. With a variety of helpful poses and mental awareness techniques that are useful on and off the mat, I believe this is possible. I am very excited to share this experience of yoga with you and hope you are able to find some familiarity on this journey with me as well.

Brianna Yoga Instructor

I stepped into my yoga journey during college and haven’t turned back since. I discovered yoga as an accessible means to find space in my body, mind and life. I believe everyone has the true power within to be their greatest healer but often need to unveil the layers to uncover it. My classes will take people on a powerful journey to find the space to discover their inner strength and power. I completed my 200 hour RYT with Hot Yoga Revolution in 2018.  

Chia of I'm So Yoga

Chiarina (Chia) Yoga Instructor

Chiarina completed her 200hr at Hot Yoga Revolution. Since 2013, she practiced yoga solely to use it as a ''flexibility exercise'' to incorporate into her tango dancing and teaching. As a passionate seeker of health and wellness she studied medicine until 2017.  She found yoga again and incorporated it into her daily routine but this time was different.   She quickly fell in love with the daily practice, inspired by amazing teachers and the community surrounding her and decided to stop her medical studies, enroll in teacher power vinyasa training to pursue her self love and support others to do the same.  She was powerful enough to create this and every other possibility for herself.
