Meet
Jennifer

Jennifer completed 500 hours and is a Registered Yoga Teacher with the Yoga Alliance and also a Texas Licensed Esthetician.  She teaches Restorative Yoga, Chair Yoga at the Senior Center and Aerial yoga to adults and kids.

I believe Yoga is a practice of “Working In” and not “Working Out”.  And I spent my whole life watching other do the FANCIEST Yoga Work Out’s and thought I can’t do that so I won’t try.  My yoga teacher journey began a few years ago when I took the leap to get my teaching certificate among all the other work & family responsibility so that I could endeavor on a path of self-discovery, and ignite my personal power. I was learning to accept, give grace, and creating space in the areas of my life I was stuck!! Unraveling layers around my heart that I built for protection from the outside world.  hat I really learned is that Yoga is more about making peace with my authentic self. Redness, so now I come to my mat regularly to FEEL and not accomplish.  When I teach yoga I am more witnessing to the world and my fellow attendees my own practices in awareness and self-love.  And I share regular messages of inspiration, hope and acceptance with each of my class attendees. And encourage them to slow down, take that extra breath and seek something greater each day.

Meet

Kat

Kat will be joining The Yogi Treehouse to teach our Sunday Morning Flow at the Connemara Meadow Nature Preserve. Kat has been teaching yoga for six years and is a 500 RYT. 

Kat believes everything is as it should be, especially, where your body takes you each time you practice yoga. No need to push yourself or be excessive. You are right where you are supposed to be in that moment, so, feel it and let go of any expectations that you may have about what your body should or should not be doing. Her teaching style focuses on breathing and deepening body awareness as yogis move through mindfully constructed sequences on their mat.  She believes yoga should be inclusive of all bodies, ages, and abilities.

 

She loves sharing her passion for yoga with anyone that will listen. So, look out!

Meet Maria

I began my yoga journey in 2012. I was a young mom looking for just a little peace and quiet, and then I found yoga!

 

I am a teacher by trade. I have been in music education since 2003. The word “practice” has been a part of my vocabulary for years. Yoga gave me something else to practice, but it never had to be perfect. I found ways that my yoga practice bled into my life. My yoga practice started to improve my life. And that is what led me to go into teacher training.

 

I love paying it forward. I am passionate about music, and I am passionate about yoga! Both are great vehicles to teach about life! I love teaching about life, and yoga is such a fun and wonderful way that I can help people discover who they are and what makes them tick. The exercise is great, too!

Meet Debbie

Debbie's journey into yoga began in cycling.  She was taking cycling classes with Lifetime cycle club. She was looking for something to balance her routine and found a yin yoga class she would attend after her cycle workout. She then started to add vinyasa to her practice.  The stretching asanas felt good, the core work helped her cycling, and the meditation helped ease the chatter in her mind.  The more she practiced the more she felt the need to share her experience. She completed her 200hr training at Lifetime Fitness is December of 2013, and went on to complete her 300hr through LifePower Yoga in April of 2017. In between she got certified in Yoga Bridge to teach yoga to cancer patients ans survivors in 2014 and Functional Anatomy of Yoga in 2020. Yoga is an integral part of her life and she loves sharing her passion for practice with her students.

Her certifications include:

200hr ERYT

500hr RYT
