Kyleigh Cromer, RYT200      “Yoga has always been deeper than a physical practice for me. I want to share through teaching how Yoga has made me feel a greater connection with myself and all that surrounds me. When I first started my home practice, I had never felt more free to express myself through every layer of my vessel. Yoga has helped me be who I was always meant to be and to admire that we are all so unique and beautiful. I have grown to appreciate the human body and its infinite possibilities through practicing. There are no limitations in Yoga, and that’s what makes it so magical. I will always remind my students that they are doing the best they can when they are breathing mindfully and listening to themselves and their bodies. We all have what it takes if we have our breath, as the quality of our breath expresses our true being. I’ve realized how important it is to take time with yourself, to be patient, as it guides you to feel more, love more, and be more in the moment. I will forever continue to heal my mind, body, and spirit through Yoga in hopes of passing the healing energy along. My teaching journey has just begun and I couldn’t be more grateful for this experience and those who want to share theirs with me. Namasté.“

Rose Martin, RYT200      "I love yoga and all its gifts, on and off the mat. I began practicing after lower back surgery 20 years ago. Through the years as a speech pathologist, I began introducing yoga into my therapy sessions with special needs children and adults on an individual basis. Seeing the changes and benefits for every type of body and mind inspired me to continue my personal study and become a registered yoga instructor.   My goal is to share my love for yoga and hold non-judgmental, compassionate, supportive space for my students to build, explore and deepen their practice.  I am always learning, always a student of yoga and life. My style continues to evolve and encompass the needs of my class whether that's an intuitive flow or focus on alignment. Come live, love and breathe with me."

Haily Simon, RYT200      "I am a 200HR registered yoga teacher and reiki practitioner. I got into yoga a few years ago to deal with my anxiety. It has helped my anxiety immensely, as well as many other areas of my life that I did not expect. It has made me more whole and peaceful as a person. So, I decided to become a teacher because I feel drawn to help others find their own yoga practice to help them blossom and find peace in themselves and their surroundings. I feel I was put on this earth to be a healer by helping others connect back to their roots and mother earth. Other than yoga and reiki (energy healing) I am interested in nutrition. I take a holistic, whole body wellness approach to my life and classes. My goal is for every student to leave my class feeling renewed and more connected to themselves… Ready to take on life with a smile on their face, love in their heart, and stillness in their minds."

Eva Rzadkosz-Diaz, RYT200  Eva strongly believes in the physical, mental, emotional and most of all spiritual healing power of yoga!  Born and raised in Poland she immigrated to the US at the age of 17 and instantly knew this is where she wanted to be.   Life hasn’t been exactly easy for her. Living with anxiety and PTSD since childhood, she found how powerful and profoundly healing Yoga was after taking her first class in 2010!  She knew right there and then, that yoga would literally save her life, and it did!   In 2015, after practicing yoga regularly for 5 years, she finally found the courage to enroll in YTT! This was one of the most challenging, but also the most rewarding decisions she’s made for herself! Becoming a certified yoga instructor was what she was meant to do! It changed her life in numerous ways! She finally found her voice and her true purpose in life! To share this ancient practice with everyone who needed healing!  "Yoga has made a profound impact on my life in more ways than one and being able to share it with others is truly a blessing.  Yoga has given me the tools I needed, to learn how to overcome the fear of failure and judgement, how to believe in myself and how to find courage to trust myself and my talents! Through yoga I've learned to accept myself for who I am, to know my worth and most importantly I've learned that by embracing my flaws and imperfections, I was able to do the same for others. To me, Yoga is Love and when you have love, you have everything."  She is eager and truly honored to share the love, energy and passion she has for yoga, with full understanding that we all practice yoga for our own unique reasons!   In her vinyasa flow classes, after she verbally guides you through a sequence that she thoughtfully designed, you will be encouraged to let go of doubts and fears and flow at your own pace with acceptance, love and understanding.  The “free flow” part of class becomes their moving meditation and it gives the students the opportunity to express their individuality and even their creativity! Students become more conscious and aware of their breath, that guides the body through series of postures! The mind finally settles, giving them the freedom to embrace and love their own unique selves.  “With self acceptance and self love we finally find peace”!   That’s our journey.   Namaste.
