Yoga Teachers

Brandi Rivait

Passionate and delighted to share the powerful, transformational gifts of yoga and energy healing. She is a fun-loving, strong, and knowledgable teacher. Her yoga classes are deeply focused on accurate alignment, importance of breath, and mindful movements through flow. Her classroom is intimate so that students have one on one attention, but in a group setting.

Kelly Cowan

I am Individualist, Nature-lover, Yoga Teacher, Holistic Energy Practitioner and Group Meditation Facilitator.  My passion has always been to share what I know. When yoga brought relief to my chronic back and neck pain, I had to share it with everyone and so I became a certified yoga instructor. Each time a new healing modality rocked my world, I dove in head first - EFT, Reiki, Bach Flower Remedies and Groove to name a few.

Sharon Seslijia

Sharon has been practicing yoga for the last 11 years, taking her first class when she was 50 years old. Simone Reaume - Hayes was her first yoga teacher! Sharon began yoga as a way of coping with burnout from years of weight training and a highly stressful job. She has participated in many styles of yoga (Ashtanga, yin, vinyasa flow) and became a certified yoga teacher in 2015. Her current passion is Iyengar yoga, which emphasizes correct alignment and the use of props to assist all bodies to experience the health benefits of the asanas while minimizing the risk of injury. For the past 2 years, Sharon has been teaching a karma Chair Yoga class for mature women, re-introducing them to the joy of movement. She has a strong home practice and is also focusing on living a yogic life on and off the mat.

Noelle

Noelle Lambier

Yoga is for everyone!  If you have ever been curious about yoga come learn the basics with me, Monday’s from 6-7!  I will be breaking down the foundations of yoga:

  • Safe and proper alignment when moving and moving into stillness 

  • Breath practice and synching with movement 

  • Always listening to your body, coming out of poses when needed, practicing finding your edge but not going over. 

I am always amazed at how these practices help me with everyday life and not just on the mat!  I am so looking forward to teaching, flowing, and feeling excellent with you all!  Namaste, Love & Light! 

Yoga Basics for Beginners Mondays 6pm

Wendi Evon

Wendi fell in love with the powerful, flowing movements of vinyasa and began a daily practice. It wasn’t long before she decided to do formal training to teach and complete the Teacher Training Program in 2013. She has taken part in various workshops and retreats to further not only her own practice but her teaching practice. She likes to continue to her own personal development and empower others to do so as well. In her spare time she likes to training to run half marathons, and spending time with her dogs and her family. She looks forward to sharing her journey with you!

Elena Childs

My name is Elena, “El”, for short! With a focus on breathing and stretching, I consider my classes gentle, un-intimidating and relaxing.  I have taught piano most of my life and find that yoga is the perfect vein to use the therapy music brings to body and mind.  Since I love what I do, I enjoy sharing what I’ve learned with everyone.

I love to use an acronym for yoga as such; “Your Own Greatness Affirmed!”
