Chelsea Ray

With borrowed courage and a few kind words from her man, she took the training, mainly with the goal of expanding her own personal practice. But as her passion for yoga grew, so did her desire to share it. Yoga has given her access to what she was searching for, which was something that was inside her the entire time. Now she works to cultivate that voice inside and help others hear their own. Currently working on her second degree in holistic nutrition, Chelseas path has changed considerably. And every day she is grateful to the people who have taught her, as well as those she can teach.

Jonny Karrol

Jonny started his yoga adventure in 2010.  Initially just for the flexibility, and because he wanted to do sweet moves like handstands.  He was traveling in a rock band, feeding an insatiable ego when he came to realize how much more to a a yoga practice there could be then just the postures.  Through his yoga practice he started gaining clarity.  Freedom!  It was like seeing the world for the first time, he describes.  This realization took him all the way to California where he studied classical ashtanga yoga with his guru, Baba Hari Dass.  He began to see himself moving through patterns he had always been unconscious of.  This self-reflection was difficult, but as Baba Hari Dass wrote "once you see it, you can change it."  After confronting some of his destructive routines he came out stronger.  After learning to love himself unconditionally he couldn't help but love everything unconditionally.  He still loves arm balances and advancing his yoga practice but also loves music, laughing, and teaching.  Now he realizes that everyone has good days and bad days but that's all part of the story.  While he's here he hopes to inspire positivity and have some fun along the way.  He enjoys challenging his students to grow physically and personally.  Physically, by safely pushing boundaries with dynamic movements and encouraging challenging postures.  Personally by reducing stress, sharpening focus, and promoting awareness. 

"Blessed are the flexible, for they shall not be bent out of shape." -Unknown
