Melissa

TRIPLE THREAT INSTRUCTOR

My name is Melissa. I got married in June 2019 and I love teaching group exercise. I played competitive softball in college and wanted to keep in shape after. I have taught Les Mills Body Pump and HITT training classes. I love to break a sweat and feel stronger after every class. Strong is sexy!

Jen

VINYASA INSTRUCTOR

Jen discovered yoga in 2006 after a decade of navigating how to manage anxiety and depression. With her first yoga class and a quiet cry in savasana, she felt some of the heaviness begin to lift off her shoulders. Her love of yoga and the way it made her feel inspired her to share this with others. She completed her 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training in 2011 and went on to complete a Kids Yoga Training with Flow and Grow Yoga in 2015. After ten years of teaching, Jen completed her 300 hour Yoga Teacher Training with Chakra Power Yoga in 2021.

 

Jen believes that every class can be inclusive and accessible if taught the right way. Realizing that people of different ages, bodies and abilities might want more than Gentle Yoga, her Vinyasa flow includes modification options while continuing to flow and build strength.

 

Starting a yoga practice can feel intimidating and Jen’s goal is to make each student feel welcome. She hopes to arm students with the tools and space they need to leave class feeling strong, confident, happy and at peace. Each class begins with meditation and breath work followed by carefully sequenced poses to safely ease you into a vigorous or gentle flow. Jen’s classes are fun and down to earth, with a grounding flow meant to challenge your body as well as restore.
