Studio: Soula Grove Yoga - Paso Robles, CA
I believe life is a personal journey and my goal is to encourage growth and understanding of the self through yoga, where students can create a vision, discover their own sense of spirituality and find a holistic balance in their everyday lives. I am as much a student as I am a teacher, embracing the process all along the way. We should all take a moment, close our eyes and just breathe.
Studio: You Power Yoga
I love building connections with students and seeing them become happier, healthier, more loving and relaxed. My prayer is for You Power Yoga students to experience the joyful, lasting transformation yoga brings. Come as you are – large, small, happy, not so happy; leave better. It really can be just that simple.
Philosophy: Yoga has been an amazing teacher and friend ever since it came into my life. Through yoga I have been empowered to follow my dreams and do what I love. I believe yoga offers people the tools to find balance in life, and that’s what I want for my students. I put emphasis on the mind-body-breath connection in all of my classes. I am very passionate about my continent- Africa, and I believe yoga can bring a lot of healing to Africa’s children. My philosophy is that yoga is everyone. There is nothing more beautiful than people from all walks of life coming together to move and breath as one.

“I believe yoga is a one size fits all practice, meaning it’s for every one.” – Jasmine Creighton
Studio: Rise Power Yoga, Princeton NJ
I love making yoga accessible and real. It's for real people living real lives. There's no perfect image of what a yogi looks like, it's in ALL of us. Every class may be a little different as we arrive differently on our mats each time. I love to create a space for individual's to come together...find themselves and find a community. Self love is key. I try to live this every day, on and off my mat. And yoga inspires me to dig deep and explore the inner most version of me, my true self. As I connect better with myself, I'm able to better connect with the realness in my students. We are all doing the best we can every day...some days may just be better than others, but that's okay. It's an ongoing effort. My class is a place for everyone, no matter their skill level, gender, age, size, color, religion, diet, etc. Like a great mat, it serves everyone :)
Studio: Hendricks Regional Health Yoga Studio Danville, IN
Style: Hatha and chronic conditions
Lori Coffey was introduced to yoga and meditation after a back injury in the late 90's. It has been the benefits of the ancient practice of body-mind union that has helped her with pain management, flexibility, strength, stress reduction and many other benefits these ancient practices offer. From her own yoga practice, Lori brings to her students the a union of breath and movement to focus the mind and bring awareness to the alignment, balance, and strength for each asana while being very present in the moment. In addition to the physical benefits of yoga, Lori aims to teach students to appreciate the non-physical benefits of practice by returning to lessons learned on the mat in to their daily lives off the mat.

Studio: Nour Yoga - Mombasa, Kenya
My philosophy is that yoga practice has a lot to offer everyone. What I as a teacher give to my students covers all elements physical, emotional, mental and spiritual. Through asana, students achieve physical and emotional balance, which gives way to greater mental clarity and eventually deeper spiritual connections. I love having students open up about their yoga experiences and the benefits they receive.

I believe in teaching a style that offers a holistic approach to the practice, ranging from Gentle to a more challenging Hatha Flow. All classes of my classes incorporate breathing (pranayama), poses (asanas), deep relaxation (yoga nidra) & meditation. A complete workout for mind, body & soul. I come from a background of injury and am a walking miracle proving the healing powers of yoga. I live my life sharing this with others.

Style: Vinyasa, Restorative
One of my greatest passions is helping others to find balance on and off the mat with a particular emphasis on the breath, and enjoyment of the present moment and connection to their inner self. I came to the mat 8 years ago after the sudden death of my father not really sure what I was seeking at the time of sadness. I found a soft place for my body and sweet place for my heart .Yoga brought me contentment, balance, love, joy, strength, rest, and peace. And I just wanted to pass it all on, I love teaching flow classes to fun music with a balance between effort and surrender! I also love the many benefits of Restorative Yoga which I have experienced them in my own practice. I am so grateful and honored to be able to share my love and passion for yoga with others on and off the mat!
Studio: Embrace Yoga DC, Relax Zen Yoga
I believe we are all divinely inspired, creative beings- the masters of our greatest selves.
I believe that yoga is for everyone who wants to practice it, regardless of age, weight, gender, or any other attributes. I firmly believe that yoga should be the perfect balance of challenging and fun. I love to empower my students to try something new, something scary, with no guarantees of success, and that messing up and learning is much better than not trying. I end every class with "Be Brave, Be Weird, Be Unequivocally You" and my classes and energy attest to that. I love when people break down their barriers that yoga is scary and serious, and they finally embrace the power in not taking their practice so seriously. It's a practice -- an excuse to get messy and to fall, and to pick yourself back up.
