Julie has been practicing yoga and the healing arts for over 10 years. Her compassionate nature in her classes is a direct reflection of her many years of Buddhist study. In 2003, Julie co-founded the Indiana Buddhist Center and was dedicated to her role on the Board for many years. Julie says, “Anything good I have to offer in my classes or life, I owe to my beautiful teachers”. Julie brings a healing background to her classes with an emphasis on alignment, form and breath. She encourages her students to recognize the connection to life's everyday challenges and the challenges they might experience on the mat, while reminding students that yoga, like life, is a journey, not a destination. 

Julie completed her first 200hr Yoga Training at Yoga Midwest and in 2006 she completed OM Yoga’s Teacher Training program and received her Vinyasa certification through OM. She continues her studies with workshops and yoga training intensives including with the Vibrant and Inspirational Shiva Rae and Traditional Yoga Studies “Tibetan Heart Yoga”.

Julie is also a certified Reflexologist and practices in Sensui New Beauty spa.

Prior to discovering yoga in suburban Detroit in 2005, Cindy's mind and body health regiment was scattered. Her body was accustomed to a strong physical practice and her mind was hardly involved in the process. After her first Vinyasa class, Cindy saw that yoga is the link between mind and body, and its message is especially important in our stressful lives. For Cindy, yoga unfolds itself in its ability to shift off of the mat and into our everyday lives, helping us move through any challenges that may arise on a daily basis.

Cindy's personal spiritual practice embodies non-violence and non-judgement to others and oneself, acknowledging that we are constant works in progress. She received my training through True FLOW Yoga in Costa Mesa, CA under the patient guidance of Brynn Rybacek, an Iyengar-based practitioner. She is a member of The Yoga Alliance with a 200 hour RYT certification. Music is ever-present in her life and her classes are often guided by whatever tunes are moving her.

Cindy's favorite asanas: "Those that inspire an open heart -- BACKBENDS!"

Kristen, a yoga teacher and freelance writer, has been practicing since 1997. She spent the last three years deepening her practice, gaining greater knowledge and understanding of Vinyasa Flow and Hatha styles of yoga by earning her Yoga Alliance-approved, 200- and 500-hour teaching certificates and attending classes and workshops throughout Long Beach and L.A.

Kristen's teaching style emphasizes strength; flexibility; proper alignment; and, most important, safety. All movement is connected with the breath, ensuring that students gain the most benefit from their practice — physically, mentally and spiritually. And all classes follow a distinctive theme — whether related to a specific part of the anatomy, the season or a personal intention. In the end, her goal is to inspire students to work to their highest potential, while encouraging them to have fun and enjoy their practice.

Kristen loves exploring the world, photography, cooking and eating, volunteerism, the Sierra Nevadas, and — most of all — her friends and family.​
