From her very first yoga class, Alicia felt a sense of returning home. This was the beginning of a life changing adventure. As her personal practice evolved, she began to feel a pull to share what she had come to cherish. After completing a Bachelors of Science in Economics she immediately enrolled in a 200 hour yoga teacher training at the University of Utah. She treasures sharing yoga with many different individuals from all walks of life. Her experience ranges from working in private settings, college football players, to 100 adolescent girls. While respecting the intelligence of this ancient tradition she enjoys the freedom to modify her teaching. Each class is designed to encourage students to tap into their unique abilities. Her classes are soul soothing and physically empowering. When she isn't practicing she fills her time working as an Executive Assistant and seeking the sweet things life has to offer.
Angela began practicing yoga just as a means to increase flexibility. She had taken up skydiving and gravitated toward the discipline of freestyle, which is like dancing and acrobatics in the sky. However, many years of competitive swimming had slowly tightened everything up. She knew immediately that increasing her flexibility would assist greatly in achieving her skydiving goals. However, yoga quickly became much more than that. In addition to the physical, the mental and spiritual benefits quickly came to light and it has since become an integral part of not just her skydiving career, but as a result, her entire life.
As a Utah Native, Annie trained as a professional dancer in ballet and modern dance at the Ballet West Conservatory and later the Utah State University Theatre department. Alongside her studies, she began her practice with Vinyasa Yoga, which she has been involved in for 8 years. Originally, she participated in a twelve month certification program in the 'it's Yoga' system with Larry Shultz in San Francisco, California. Returning to Salt Lake City, she built a personalized yoga training practice and taught a therapeutic approach to ballet and contemporary dance for young dancers and performers. For the past four years Annie lived in Logan, UT, where she ran a community yoga studio, taught yoga courses at Utah State University and interned under professor and internationally renowned dancer/choreographer Camille Litalien, Annie has performed and choreographed many works with the department.
Courtney is passionate about living a healthy, well-balanced life full of meaning, growth, and love. Yoga first found her in a ballet conditioning class; the physical challenge and the peaceful energy of yoga immediately had her hooked. After graduating from the University of Utah with a Bachelor’s degree in Chemistry, she soon enrolled in a 200-hr training. Yoga has enhanced her life on and off the mat and she wants to share that with others. Courtney believes yoga can offer inspiration, power, and healing. She is devoted to making each of her classes an uplifting experience for each of her students.
Debi found yoga in 2002 when she was dragged to a practice by her extremely persistent sister who for years had promised it would "change her life"....turns out sis was right, and she hasn't gone a day since without finding her way to her mat. Originally from Colorado, she certified through Inner Connections Whole Life Center in the beautiful Rocky Mountains and has learned from some of the most influential yoga souls in the world. She finds the juxtaposition of the physiological and the spiritual intriguing and integrates knowledge from her education in both Psychology and Neuroscience into her own practice and her teaching. She thrives on the dynamic energy brought to the mat by each of her students and hopes to reciprocate by leaving each one with a feeling of strength and peace.
