Christina’s sense of adventure has been nurtured and supported by her love of travel and yoga. 22 years of her personal yoga practice and 7 years teaching her expression of yoga to all types of bodies and backgrounds, has given her a unique perspective on how effective and transformative the practice of present moment awareness, embodied movement, and time communing with nature can be. She loves introducing and making yoga available to every “body” as a tool for healing and self-inquiry.
Yoga came into my life when I was working in a high pace busy office in downtown Ottawa 20 years ago. My passion for yoga leads me to want to teach others how this practice will benefit your body, mind, and soul.
My style of teaching is about using a balance of demonstrating, correcting, and motivating the class. I focus on breath, meditation, moving slowly, and gently and at the same time coming to your edge to get the full benefits of your yoga practice.
My current emphasis Is to work with specialized groups where yoga has been scientifically proven to benefit as a tool to overcome health and wellness barriers
Katie has been practicing yoga for over fifteen years but not until the last few years did she really fall in love with the practice. "To me, it became more than simply a workout or stretches, but it filled up my soul. Each time I left my mat I felt like I knew myself a little better. I also felt a deeper connection to my body." Katie emphasizes breath and alignment in her classes and loves to help her students discover that they really are capable of so much more than they realize. She hopes her classes will offer a little something for everyone and that you will always leave feeling just a little more "full" than when you came. Off her mat Katie enjoys hiking with her dogs, spending time in the sun, watching Netflix, traveling, camping, drinking tea, collecting succulents, laughing, making jewelry, going on motorcycle rides with her husband, and eating delicious food, especially chocolate. She received her 1,000 hr Yoga Teacher Certification through Inbody Academy in 2014 and has since attended various alignment-based training in the Anusara (Inspired) method. She has taken immersions and workshops with Anusara Instructors Adam Ballenger, Christy Burnette, Sheldon & Lindsay Thieszen, Trista Winder, Sianna Sherman, and Sean Haleen… as well as Power Yoga instructors D'ana Baptiste and Brian Kest.
Katie continues to learn and grow as a teacher from continuing education classes, learning from her fellow teachers, and observing and connecting with her students. She also holds a Bachelors's degree from the University of Utah in International Studies with a Minor in Chinese.

Dee found her way to yoga when looking for low-impact activities to help her become more active when recovering from an injury. Over time, yoga became more than just a physical practice and she decided to do her foundation teacher training to learn more about yoga and to be able to share the practice with others.
Now working as a London-based yoga teacher, Dee focuses on fostering confidence, control, and calm in her students. She uses asana, pranayama, and meditation to respond to the needs of the group. Through physical movement and breath, Dee encourages students to find strength and stability in their practice to sustain them through their busy lives.
Dee is committed to her development as a yoga teacher and has continued her studies since completing her foundation training in vinyasa yoga. She has completed additional training in anatomy and physiology, teaching inclusive yoga, mandala methodology, pregnancy, and post-natal yoga, and decolonizing yoga. She recently returned to university to train as a physiotherapist and is excited to see how that knowledge and skills influence her teaching and her ability to support her students.
Marta has been on a roller coaster with fitness her whole life. Having never been an athletic or sports oriented person, she found it hard to find a workout that she could fully enjoy and come back to time and time again. About nine years ago, Yoga brought a new joy into her life and she began studying all different forms of yoga, including Birkam, Iyengar, and Vinyasa.
Shortly after she earned her yoga teaching certificate, Marta injured her back in a car accident. Since then, her teaching has shifted towards what helped heal her own body which includes- core stability, isometrics, static holds, breath work, and balance. She incorporates these into her classes in the hopes of passing that knowledge to help protect one’s body at any age. A student of Transcendental Meditation, she also helps to guide students and private clients towards inner peace which can be difficult in a cluttered and hurried world.
Marta also loves to fuse playfulness, joy and curiosity into her teaching which has lead to her hosting yoga sailing retreats around the world. A fun, intimate, relaxing, and unique adventure of a lifetime!
When she's not teaching yoga, Marta is a travel and restaurant consultant. For travel, she provides curated itineraries for visitors coming into her hometown of Pittsburgh, and other locations.

Dylan (RYT-500) is a sun-obsessed, strong-willed, life-loving powerhouse with a restless soul. After four years adventuring abroad, she is now back home in Southern California, based out of Los Angeles.
She discovered yoga online while teaching English in a small town in France in 2014, where she began a daily practice for the first time in her life. Originally drawn to interval yoga for the weight loss and strength building benefits, her practice deepened when she took the Uplifted Yoga Teacher Training 200 hour with Brett Larkin and Uplifted Yoga in 2016, then her 300 hour with the same teacher in 2020, and exponentially more so when she began her Kundalini Teacher Training with Guru Singh in 2020.
Now when she's not creating, filming, and producing her own blend of interval infused yoga classes, you can find her leading women all around the world toward a powerful and committed yoga practice, galavanting on the beach with her dog, concocting something delicious in the kitchen, or plotting her next international adventure.
Dylan's classes can be found online under the name Yoga Infusion, a play on the concept of yoga being like an herbal infusion for the body and mind, as well as the fact that her classes are fusion classes - seamlessly blending the fat burning and strength building qualities of interval training with the calming and peaceful elements of yoga. These classes are full of fun and animals, and are designed to help women (re)discover health, happiness, and personal empowerment through reconnecting with the strength in the body and shedding the layers that no longer serve.

Taylor is passionate about all the elements of yoga and draws her inspiration from these ancient practices. Her classes are focused on the breath-to-movement connection, allowing her students the opportunity for a moving meditation. She believes set sequences are best for her students to progress in their practice. Her classes are mindful, set with intention, strong/challenging, and a cheerful/welcoming environment.
Taylor loves sharing this practice with her students because she saw and continues to see how this practice brightens her life. Taylor feels true joy, presence, and passion when she teaches. She loves the energy exchange between student and teacher, her students offer her inspiration daily and she will do the same for YOU.
Amanda discovered yoga in 2012, in a very tiny and hot studio in Manhattan, and was instantly hooked. “The way that yoga suddenly connected me to something bigger than myself was what kept me interested and wanting to know more.” Amanda began working on staff at a yoga studio in 2016, and completed her 200-hour RYT training in 2017 at Yoga One in Charlotte, NC.

She also teaches yoga and meditation at a mental health and addiction recovery clinic, where she gets to witness the power of yoga changing lives.
Amanda has found her passion teaching yoga, explaining, “Some of my favorite things about teaching yoga is watching the transformation that happens when my students do something they never dreamed they could do, or discover powerful new revelations about themselves, or tap into their personal power and strength. In my teaching, I emphasize moving with breath to quiet the mind, practicing mindfulness, and strengthening a loving relationship with oneself. My primary goal in teaching is to help my students connect to their essence, access their inner radiant light and become inspired to share that Light with the world.”

Semrin started her Yoga practice with the intention to bring regularity into her life. She was looking for something that would ground her restless mind and spirit. Later, this intention led her to travel to India where she accomplished her 200h Multi-Style TTC, and with her deep appreciation for the Ashtanga Yoga practice, she has spent a long period at the KPJAYI and the teaching program of Saraswati Jois.
Semrin’s teachings are intuitive, playful, and yet structured. As the dynamic practice and the therapeutic aspect of Ashtanga were her nourishing ground, Yin Yoga gave the polishing to her practice and teachings. She likes to switch between the motion and the non-motion parts of the Asana practice to get to the depths. She easily conducts mixed classes with beginners and people with regular practice. Her friendly and empathic personality helps to let go of life’s perturbations and to be fully present on the mat, in union with oneself.
Noemi Duré is a certified RYT Yoga Teacher. Born in 1997 in Italy, she started off her practice in 2016 in Budapest, Hungary. From then she never stopped travelling and studying: she lived and practiced in Italy, Greece and United States. Currenlty she lives in Italy where she teaches Power Yoga between Florence and Milan.
Power Yoga is a strong and dynamic style of yoga where the body and the mind move in a flow and follow the breath and the music. Coming from the tradition of Ashtanga Yoga, Power Yoga was born in the US between 80s and 90s and now it’s also getting more and more popular in Europe. What makes this kind of yoga special is that you do move a lot during the practice, and you built strength!
Christie first got on the mat as a child, practicing alongside her mother until she was old enough to enroll in classes on her own. After dedicating herself to 5 years of Ashtanga yoga, she enrolled in her 200-hr YTT in Rishikesh, India, with the intention of understanding the ancestry of yoga and its true meaning.
Not only did she receive a certification in Hatha and Ashtanga Yoga, it was also where she learned about the path of 'bhakti' meaning love and devotion. This serves as the foundation of her yoga classes from deep breaths in a restorative Hatha flow to big smiles in a power Ashtanga class, every moment is infused with love and dedication.
